Radhika Sharma, a tourist from Delhi said “It’s so beautiful here and I have seen the mustard fields in the Bollywood movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. It’s very beautiful, we saw Tulip Garden also, but this is a natural beauty, and everyone should explore it. I did not expect this and while we were on our way to Pahalgam we saw the fields stopped so that I could take pictures. Kashmiris are the politest and kindest people in the whole country.”
