Standing and staring is an art and it can be perfected if you, like me, are on a houseboat on Nagin Lake in Kashmir, waiting for the sun to appear. I am not a morning person but the lake is enchanting. There are more than 150 houseboats on Nagin lake, but the sound of silence is music to the ears. Photographs cannot do justice to the beauty of Kashmir and yet, here is a humble attempt.
