Here's the issue
Maybe the fact I’m a Kashmiri(a resident of the state of Kashmir) counts? Or is my Kashmiriyat (the love towards my motherland Kashmir) the only deciding factor in this application?
Here's the complete chapter
2nd April, '19
I don’t know what to do… Tried applying at many places, at every available opportunity with my degree and there’s always that something is lacking. The admins are so vague, they don’t even give feedback on my interviews. Wish there was some department, some skills where I could improve. My English is good and I dress okayish too. Honestly wonder what’s holding them back? Maybe the fact I’m a Kashmiri(a resident of the state of Kashmir) counts? Or is my Kashmiriyat (the love towards my motherland Kashmir) the only deciding factor in this application? Feels so odd that my degree, my job experience doesn’t count at all. I really really wanted to get this job. Wow… my desperation shines through.
Abba and Amma would have been so happy. At least I could help taking care of a part of finances. After paying her fees, Amayra will be able to attend her school regularly. Maybe this is destined. I’m so tired. But I won’t give up… I’ll get a job, work harder, better. Any job will do. As long as I earn something, I’ll do it. Anything is better than nothing. Abba can rest in the assurance that I’ll be helping him in covering the costs. Business has been slow these months. There are tourists with the heavy layer of snow around. Avalanches are common here and now food will be scarce too. Schools will close as the snow rises and solidifies. Amayra loves school. Wants to be an engineer someday. Like me. I’ll make her one. Even if it means I must work 24/7. She’s my little sister and her dreams are my dreams.
My issue is the italicized words don’t blend with what Ibrahim would say, because as a native, he already knows what’s a Kashmiri and the meaning of Kashmiriyat.
I had a comment asking me to elaborate on the word Kashmiri:
I’m not quite sure what “Kashmiri” means so maybe take the time to explain that?
I’m struggling how to explain to someone who isn’t familiar with the Indian/Kashmiri culture, without losing the flow of the sentence.
Can you please help, Nick?
