Weathering the Occupation Meteorological Wars and Climate Futures in Kashmir

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article examines how weather became an important element of India’s imperial project particularly after 2019, while its everyday forecast and management, as well as its seeming predictability, offered the Indian state an illusion of control in Kashmir’s uncertain political terrain. Against this backdrop, the article foregrounds how weathering the occupation offers a critical analytic to track the eco-logics of the Indian occupation in Kashmir and to consider how Kashmiris rely on the potency of differently constituted “earth beings” to envision alternative political, ecological, and geographic futures.
