The main invitees for the Iftar party were the children who have been left orphaned in the 20 years of armed struggle in the valley.

This Ramadan is expected to bring the most challenging fast in decades since it's coinciding with the Summer Solstice in the northern hemisphere for the first time in over 30 years.

The party was organized by an event management company called 'Loud Beetle' in cooperation with civil society groups and business houses of Kashmir.
