Zubin Mehta's Kashmir Concert Couldn't Escape Kashmir's Problems
The Indian conductor's performance with the Bavarian State Orchestra at the Shalimar Gardens may have been intended to bring the balm of (Western) classical music to the conflict-torn state, but locals ended up alienated by heavy-handed security, the musicians felt lied to about the nature of the event, and one man had been shot and wounded by police nearby.
