23-year-old girl is first Kashmiri to develop Android app

A music lover and an ardent Atif Aslam fan, Mehvish says technology fascinates her and her love for ‘any-thing-tech’ was the sole inspiration behind her ‘dream of developing something which would help the people of my native place’.

Mehvish, who did her B.E from SSM College of Engineering and Technology in Pattan area of north Kashmir's Baramulla district, says girls in Kashmir are ‘second to none’ and ‘can achieve anything’.

"We just have to keep a dream alive and start working towards realising it. We are second to none and once we set on something, we can achieve it," she said.

The response to the application, she says, has been "encouraging".

"Heartening to see a Kashmiri girl develop an android app when everyone claims to be a geek in Kashmir. Good work although app is simple. Keep it up," one Android user, Rais Bhat, who downloaded the app from Google Play, wrote as feedback.

Another user, Wani Kamraan, wrote, "SPEECHLESS..! Well the application should be improved but this work of you should be appreciated by me, by your own people...So 4 stars for your outstanding work and extra one for being citizen as well as sister of me from my Kashmir... Thank You!".

Mehvish says she is now working on making the application "much better" and trying to add "as more details and information as possible".
