A nice poem. How I wish you could write the same in Standardised Devanagari Kashmiri which has relevant diacritical marks for typical Kashmiri sounds. For the software (Akruti Arinimal Software), you may contact AIKS, New Delhi. For further queries, if any, you may contact me thru e-mail. Kashmiri is our mother-tongue. Let us preserve it by speaking, reading and writing. Kudos to you for your love for Kashmiri language.
