Taking care of the mosque is a holy task for them and they hope it will inspire their fellow citizens to maintain peace, love and harmony in society.

 


'Kadaknath' chicken reaches Kashmir

Date: January 11
Location: Srinagar

Have you heard of the Kadaknath?

It's a chicken that is black in colour -- yes, including the meat.

The Kadaknath -- which is also known as the Kali Masi -- was geo-tagged in 2018 after a fierce battle in which Madhya Pradesh won and Chhattisgarh lost.

Its meat is said to be nutritious, high in protein and low in fat, which is why it is one of the most expensive chicken breeds in the world.

Now, two engineering students have decided to breed it in Kashmir in a venture that they hope will create a new avenue of employment in the valley.
