Dial Kashmir Developer bags prestigious award.

FEMINA WOMEN AWARDS 2014

MEHVISH MUSHTAQ
“I don’t want to be a second someone, I want to be the first me.” So says 23-year-old Mehvish Mushtaq’s About.me page. A BE student in computer science, the driven tech geek is the creator of the Dial Kashmir Android app, a database of detailed information—addresses, phone numbers and email IDs—on essential services and relevant government departments like healthcare, education, transport and police, among others, in Kashmir.

Mehvish, a Srinagar local, is the first Kashmiri to develop an Android app. It was her love of technology that drove her to take on a one-month course in application development, and her subsequent project of creating a database for the Valley. And with 10,000 plus downloads on Google Play, it appears that the app has been exceedingly popular with locals and tourists alike. Not content with developing Kashmir’s virtual yellow pages directory, Mehvish dreams about starting a software company for dynamic young Kashmiri innovators, well aware of the hurdles and limited opportunities they must contend with.
