Three corporate stalwarts; Sanjay Kaul ex Country Head Apple India, Ajay Kaul ex CEO - Jubilant Food Works, India, Mukesh Kachroo ex CTO - Gain Capital, USA set to launch a Digital Platform to Preserve and Promote Kashmiri Pandit Culture

GURGAON, India, Sept. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- iqwat is the first-of-its-kind, community-based digital platform to preserve and promote the culture and legacy of Kashmiri Pandits across the globe. Kashmiri Pandits have faced exodus 7 times. The most recent being in 1990. As a result, Kashmiri Pandits have been uprooted from their land of birth and have been living in a displaced existence. This has led to the gradual erosion of culture, language, and heritage. Recognizing the challenge and driven by a passion for the community, three corporate stalwarts; Sanjay Kaul (ex Country Head - Apple, India), Ajay Kaul (ex CEO - Jubilant Food Works, India), and Mukesh Kachroo (ex CTO - Gain Capital, USA) have joined forces to launch iqwat.
iqwat is a virtual platform where Kashmiri Pandits can come together and engage in professional and social networking to seek, explore, inspire, and collaborate. It is a bridge between yesterday and today, a way to stay in touch with their roots, culture and rich traditions. It is a platform to revive the folk tales and songs that have been lost to time, rekindle the legacy, inspire and engage talent and provide a foundation for the youth of the community to rise and shine.
The app will be rolled out in two phases. At the time of launch, Phase One will feature a section that illustrates the history of Kashmiri Pandits dating back 2000 years with a special focus on the year 1990. The Spirituality section highlights the spiritual journey of the community with a focus on Kashmir Shaivism and prominent spiritual leaders and saint. The Showcase category features the upcoming talent and will encourage and support the youth in advancing their respective careers. Other segments include culinary section, festivals and key days, and a section featuring and celebrating prominent Kashmiri Pandits. All of this is created in a context that is extremely easy to access and consume for users of all ages.
