Hundreds of Pandits are arriving in Kashmir to celebrate the annual Mata Kheer Bhawani festival - the festival symbolising valley's religious harmony is seen as an occasion to revive the strong bonds between different communities in the valley and to pray for the return of Kashmiri Pandits. For Usha Devi and her family it is a homecoming. Twenty-seven years ago the family split up, some migrated from Srinagar to Jammu, others to Delhi, when militancy erupted in the valley. Today, the family has reunited at the Kheer Bhawani mela at Ganderbal, 27 km from Srinagar.
