Vijayee Bhavaa !!!
One of the best singers we have with us today. Due to scattering of our community we couldn't have the best of Vijay Mallah with us today. Artiste community in particular has suffered a lot due to the mass exodus in 1989.

We miss the soothing Ghazals of Malla ji and all who had to give the world of Kashmiri music a lot.
