Srinagar: The Kashmir Pulse, a leading news portal based in Kashmir, is doing its journalistic obligations and expanding its borders to cover more and more domains on a worldwide scale with each passing day.
This portal has become a forum for authors, poets, and artists to display their skills due to its reach and many followers on various social networking sites.
Given the reach of the news website on different social networking sites and its popularity among literary circles, writers from various countries, including the US, Nepal, etc., prefer to publish their work in the online portal.

The Kashmir Pulse recently hosted a series of literary events, including open mic sessions, poetry sessions, and book reading sessions, which aided in the empowerment of young authors.
Pertinently, Jammu & Kashmir has witnessed a new breed of young writers in the past few years. However, it is the only news portal that has come forward to guide and promote young talent.
The online portal is now releasing a poetry anthology titled “Perplexed Thoughts – Tales from Kashmir,” which includes works by 35 different authors. This is a unique concept when no media entity is interested in harnessing young talent.
Aasif Ganaie, Editor of the news portal, says, “In the recent months before the second wave of COVID-19, we successfully conducted a series of literary events like open mic sessions, poetry sessions, and book launches. That helped empower the young participant writers.”

Besides, it provides a comprehensive collection of news covering art, literature, and other domains.
