Miss Muriel Mallinson, a Christian missionary from London, is recognised here for her selfless contributions to the education of women in Kashmir.
She came to Srinagar in 1922 to work at Ms. Violet Fitze’s School (now known as Mallinson School). She was a visionary and brought about tremendous educational and cultural advancements.
Mallinson School has since produced some of the finest professionals who serve in Kashmir and around the world. Although not a Kashmiri, her dedication to bring about change in Kashmir and her inspirational life deserve the utmost recognition.
From the artist: As a student at Miss Mallinson’s school, this drawing is personal, recreated in pen and inspired from an old drawing of four girls in a school magazine.
Taking the boat and its significance in the history of the school, the drawing is a metaphor for the journey of the women of Kashmir from darkness to enlightenment.
This journey was pioneered by Miss Mallinson, who took up the arduous task of going door to door, making people aware of the need of girls' education.

Arnimal was an 18th century poet who was married to a famous Persian poet and historian. Legend has it that much like Lal Ded and Habba Khatoon, Arnimal’s unhappy family life was the main source of inspiration for her poignant poetry.
She was married young and her husband deserted her soon after marriage. The pain of separation and the longing for his love turned Arnimal into the romantic poet she is known as today.
From the artist: Arnimal's poetry rose from heart, got welled up in the breast and out came the gems. She highlights her condition in simplest terms and, in the process, gives glimpse of 18th century Kashmiri women.
Habba Khatoon was a 16th century mystical poet born in a Pampore village. She was known for her intelligence but was married off to an illiterate peasant who mistreated her and they soon divorced.
She found solace in poetry and singing. One day, she sang sitting under a chinar tree when a gentleman on horseback approached — mesmerised by her melodious voice and beauty. The gentleman was Yusuf Shah Chak, the last king of Kashmir.
They fell in love and this young peasant girl became queen, forever known as the Nightingale of Kashmir.
