Greater Kashmir has been receiving hundreds of emails and phone calls every day since past more than a week from Kashmiris studying or working in India and outside.
While some students complain of running out of money, others are worried about the well-being of their families back home due to communication gag imposed by the authorities.
We are reproducing some emails here:
