#ThanthirMohalla of #GurwethKalan village is known as copper village of #Kashmir. It is situated roughly 30 kilometers away from the #Budgam’s main town. Every residence of the village has one workshop for molding, & making Copper utensils. 1/n @HappaNarinder @Iftikhar_Misgar
In 1980, #copperwork was introduced in the #GurwethVillage by 2 locals #GhulamKadirAhangar & #AbdulRahman. Even after 40 years, nothing has changed in the village. In every workshop, sits 3-4 workers, side by side, to work on the different parts of a single copper utensil. 2/n

Looks like Twitter's heating up between India and Pakistan right now (no surprise there). Traffic numbers pretty even: neither side dominating. Not huge traffic, but expect pickup.

Scanning hashtags:
Here's #PakistanStrikesBack: 83k results from about 70k users. That's in line with organic traffic.

(H/t @sysomos for the scans)
Compare with #Budgam, on the Indian side of the debate. Almost level-pegging: 84k posts, from 72k users.
