sounds fine if we use her name as the brand am­bas­sador for Jammu and Kash­mir tourism, invit­ing tourists to ex­plore the an­cient places con­nected with pre-his­toric pe­riod,” a se­nior tourism of­fi­cer told this newspaper.

Giv­ing de­tails of this dis­cov­ery, Itoo told this reporter that many of them are part of the Kash­mir Pre-His­tory Project and were busy do­ing re­search in the or­chard of Haigam to un­cover the ori­gins of a dis­tinc­tive Ne­olithic cul­ture.

Ali­son Betts, pro­fes­sor of Silk Road Stud­ies at the Univer­sity of Syd­ney and ad­junct fac­ulty mem­ber at the Kash­mir Univer­sity in the Depart­ment of Cen­tral Asian Stud­ies, is lead­ing the Aus­tralian team which is a part of the KPP Project. She in her pa­per has talked about the Kim Pot and has said that they were in­ter­ested to know the ori­gins of agri­cul­ture in Asia. As her pa­per ap­peared, many jour­nal­ists were keen to know why a pot of pre­his­toric pe­riod in Kash­mir was named af­ter Kim Kar­dashian.

J&K’s Cul­ture Depart­ment of­fi­cials said that a pre-his­toric pot be­ing named af­ter Kim Kar­dashian has cre­ated in­ter­est in jour­nal­is­tic cir­cles and they now are cu­ri­ous to know about the re­search that is be­ing done on the pre-his­toric pe­riod of Kash­mir. “As far as I am con­cerned, I will rec­om­mend to the govern­ment to an­nounce Kim Kar­dashian as the brand am­bas­sador of J&K her­itage tourism,” a se­nior of­fi­cial told this newspaper.

Pot dis­cov­ered at So­pore.
