On the banks of the Jhelum river, alongside the fashionable Residency Road, well-to-do families in the city have been donating their warm clothes including jackets, coats, jerseys and more so that those in need can use them to beat the extreme cold.
The people donating these items hang them on what has come to be known as the "Wall of Kindness" for the needy to come and take them.
During the last decade and so, people in cities and rural areas of the troubled Kashmir Valley have actively been engaged in setting up orphanages and channelling donations for the needy and trying to help fellow citizens in distress.
On Wednesday, the temperature plunged to minus 3.0 in Srinagar. It was equally cold in other parts of the Valley including Pahalgam (minus 5.1) and Gulmarg (minus 4.0).
