Kashmiri Pandits’ Association, Mumbai can rightly claim the status of being the  oldest Association of Kashmiri Pandit splinter groups in the post-partition era in the country. Much before the Association was registered in 1968, it was a group of some enthusiastic Pandit youngsters from Mumbai, who after finding a vocational security in early sixties, thought of establishing a communication line with their community members who were feeling lost in the vast metropolis after leaving their secured habitat of Kashmir. They started a biradari Newsletter appropriately christened as 'MILCHAR' in Hindi in mid-sixties. The Newsletter was well received by biradari and this very Hindi MILCHAR became the precursor of today's English version of Milchar, which saw the light in the present form in 1970. Since then, Milchar has become the voice of Mumbai community. From 1-page cyclostyled English bulletin version, which at times came out regularly and sometimes with a long time-lag hiccups, has over the recent years now evolved into a regular bi-monthly periodical of the Kashmiri Pandits’ Association. It has an independent editorial board, which toils very hard in making ‘Milchar’ an authentic show window of the views and aspirations of the KP biradari in general. Milchar has gone tri-lingual since a long with write-ups in English, Hindi & Kashmiri from renowned authors on issues concerning all that which connects us to Kashmir, Kashmiri and Kashmiriyat.
