Kashmir is one of the most beautiful countries of the world; truly a land flowing with milk and honey. Pastures stretch for miles along the edge of the great pine forests which cover the mountain spurs, and here thousands of sheep and cattle graze. From these meadows, carpeted with flowers of every hue, the bees take the honey and hide it in the trunks of ancient trees. One would imagine that such a country as this would breed a fine race of men, like the Afghans and Pathans on the border, but it is not so. True, the Kashmiris are strong and well built, but they have no pluck and no self-respect. The reason for this is not far to seek. In ancient days they were a fine race like the people around them, but their country being what it is-an earthly paradise-every marauder wanted it. So it has been conquered and reconquered by the Moguls, Afghans, and Sikhs, who have used the inhabitants as they desired and crushed all the spirit out of them.
