Where are all the good-deed-doers, you ask? Some are in the remote mountains of Kashmir.

A Caddington doctor has returned to the UK with an amazing tale of tragedy and bravery after hiking 16 hours through the mountains of Kashmir to help victims of the earthquake.

Anaesthetist Dr Mohammud Nasir, who works at the Luton & Dunstable Hospital, went to Pakistan with medicine and two colleagues to aid survivors of the October 8 disaster.

By the time he left Luton one week later Dr Nasir brought aid to the remote Kotla Valley and arranged the entire airlifting of 11 devastated villages.

See, I’ve been insisting all these years that Kashmir is a real place and not something Led Zeppelin dreamed up. (Non-worshipers of ’70s metal are not expected to understand this remark).
