In late November last year, Nisar Ahmad bought umbrellas, expecting a wet winter ahead. But the dry spell lasted the December and the entire chillai kalan. Nisar was staring at losses.

But the snowfall on Monday brought smiles on the face of Nisar and vendors like him. 

“We thank the Almighty for the snowfall which is good for Kashmir environment and our business too,” said Nisar.

“I had started selling towels, table cloth and other household goods. Now the umbrellas that were gathering dust at home are selling well,” he said.
