In the past five months, whenever I have searched on google about Kashmir, I could only find news of Kashmiri youth pelting stones and carrying out protests in the valley. Recently, I found that the separatists reissued their protest calendar in Kashmir. So, the next day I expected the news on more violence in Kashmir due to protests, but surprisingly I saw an image of clear streets and normalcy returning back to the valley. I questioned myself how is it possible? Why are the separatists silent? Did the separatists change their mind or are they on leave? Or else was it the result of an announcement by our PM regarding demonetization of INR 500 and INR 1000 notes? This impelled me to search for the link if any between the restful quiet in Kashmir and the recent demonetization.
