I had uploaded this video to Youtube on June 02, 2008. It has been a year since then and and here I am share the stats of this video.
Year of daily views looks like this
The actual views as of 2 June 2009 was 28XX something. The star rating (even that half star wan't missing till a month ago) and the count for 'Favorited' tells me that the video is fairly well appreciated by the users.
A year ago, I hadn't stated this blog, so most of the views come from my other blog [At The Edge]. At no. 2 spot is a post from Kashland (a sort of 'Kashmiri' Facebook with lot of features but not too fancy a name).
No nasty comments were made, not a single comment had to be moderated (and I hope it remains like that!). Almost all the comments are by Kashmiri Muslim men. Interestingly, the first few readers of this blog, much to my surprise, were Kashmiri Musilms.
Where do these commenter come from?
A couple of comments are from West and these include a nice comment by the author of a 'Jesus in Kashmir' book [my take on the subject of the book ].
No comment by Kashmiri pundit (although the video did make it way to atleast one Kashmiri pandit blog directed at young but typically too heavy on religion and 'culture is dying').
Insterstingly, the video was posted on Kashland by a young Kashmiri Muslim girl.
Where do these viewers come from?

If any one faculty of our nature may be called more wonderful than the rest, I do think it is memory. There seems something more speakingly incomprehensible in the powers, the failures, the inequalities of memory, than in any other of our intelligences. The memory is sometimes so retentive, so serviceable, so obedient; at others, so bewildered and so weak; and at others again, so tyrannic, so beyond control! We are, to be sure, a miracle every way; but our powers of recollecting and of forgetting do seem peculiarly past finding out.
