The atmosphere of Kashmir is changing now. The 70-feet-high tricolor was hoisted at Srinagar's famous Dal Lake on Monday evening. On this occasion, Pervez Kadri, Deputy Mayor of Srinagar was also present. The cleanliness drive of Dal Lake has ended recently. Under this, the tricolor has been planted in many parts of the lake. The tricolor was also hoisted for the first time in 75 years at the Kashmir University in celebration of the 'Amrit Mahotsav of Independence' last week.
This is the place where once there were demonstrations against India and in favor of the independence of Kashmir. But now the atmosphere has changed after Article 370 of the Constitution was neutralized. According to a government order, the tricolor will also be hoisted in every government school and other educational institutions in Kashmir. It has also been asked to put a board in schools. The tricolor will be printed in it.
Dal is a lake in Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir, India. It is an urban lake, which is the second largest in the union territory of Jammu and Kashmir. It is integral to tourism and recreation in Kashmir and is named the "Lake of Flowers","Jewel in the crown of Kashmir" or "Srinagar's Jewel".The lake is also an important source for commercial operations in fishing and water plant harvesting.
The lake is popular as a visitor attraction and a summer resort. Fisheries and the harvesting of food and fodder plants are also important on Dal. Weeds from the lake are extracted and converted into compost for the gardens. It also serves as a flood lung of the Jhelum River. Swimming, boating, snow skiing (particularly when the lake is frozen during the severe winter), and canoeing are amongst some of the water sports activities practised on the lake.
The lake has numerous sites and places of interest, many of which are important to the cultural heritage of Srinagar. Aside from the Shalimar Bagh and Nishat Bagh, some of the other places frequented by tourists are the Shankaracharya temple, the Hari Parbat, the Nigeen Lake, the Chashme Shahi, the Hazratbal Shrine, and the Mazar-e-Shura cemetery containing the graves of famous Mughal-era poets. Visitors and native alike also enjoy relaxing on the water in a houseboat or a shikara boat, often called "the Gondola of Kashmir".
