Undettered by threats from Kashmiri separatists and other guerrilla groups, Bombay-born conductor Zubin Mehta went ahead with his concert for peace in India--"Ehsas-e-Kashmir" or "The Feel of Kashmir."

Of course, five people ended up wounded.

Now, both Michael Steiner, Germany's ambassador to India, and Nikolaus Bachler, general manager of the Bavarian State Orchestra, are crying afoul.

Here, then, are pictures from Mehta's scene, courtesy of intrepid Reuters photographer Danish Ismail.

This whole mess remind us of a line from another "Kashmir"..."with no provision but an open face, along the straits of fear."
