When the Indian government reformed Kashmir’s special status and imposed a lockdown. Kashmir government even did block every way they could communicate, banned every social media. So that, outside world won’t know what’s going on in their state. Hence, they cut their state from the rest of India. This had a huge impact on people’s life especially the state apple trade.

Meanwhile, Radio Zindagi volunteers went on from door to door distributing by sticking ‘I’m safe stickers on their apples. Through this way, they could communicate with one another by writing the name, address, and message they have to convey on the stickers in apple.
