Kash (काश) : Hope in the Valley
Kashmir, after the killing of Burhan Wani by security forces, saw more than 27 schools being burnt down by unknown arsonists in multiple districts.
This film talks about how important It is for education to survive and prevail in conflicted areas. The poem in this short depicts the innocence in the mind of the child, talking about her 'hero'. This hero on the other hand is contrasted by the visuals of reality caused by poverty and lack of education.
Through the Hindi word 'Kash / काश', which literally translates to an 'expression of Hope', the director wants to convey that there is still chance in such conflicted areas and it is only education that can put an end to terrorism and extremist behaviours.
