Relaxing water pipe

A man puffs on a water pipe on a houseboat in Srinagar, Kashmir. Surrounded by the Himalaya mountains, the Vale of Kashmir is culturally different from the rest of India. The only Indian state with a Muslim majority, Kashmir has been at the centre of a dispute between India and Pakistan since independence in 1947. A ceasefire line between the two effectively splits the state between the two countries.

1977, 2003 Richard McGuire
