Kashmir Nights

The sky at night is so full of stars that are never seen here in UK due to light pollution. There are thousands or even millions of them to be seen on a clear night.

It is so dark there that a torch is a must when you go to bed. Once the lights are out it is pitch dark. The windows of my sister in law's house are very small with frosted glass and not a sliver of light can be seen. They also have a slight problem with the electricity. The supply is switched of for a period every day to conserve energy. We always went to bed with a very low wattage bulb left on in case we needed to get up in the night as we wouldn't be able to find the light switch otherwise. Only problem being if the electricity went off in the middle of the night. That is when a torch was needed.
