    Background: The second largest city of the Kashmir valley, ANANTNAG, when visited by the world press on 24th was normal but subdued. The fear of guerrillas seems to have gripped all the valley. No one knows where the infiltrators from Pakistan may be lurking and at what moment the bullets may be fired. At the courts, lively Kashmiris went about their legal work normally out in the open where petition writers were busy writing out papers. Others enjoyed smoke from hubble bubble (hookah). The streets of this 27000 populace town were crowded as usual with the pavement hawkers, the fruit sellers, the men who sold corn etc., but the customers were few. No major incidents were reported on 24th from any part of the valley and the Indian army and police reported that their flushing operations were in full swing.
