SRINAGAR, JAMMU AND KASHMIR, INDIA (MAY 09, 2013)  (ANI) - A 19 year old tech enthusiast becomes the first Kashmiri in the northern state to develop an android game based on the concept of physics.

Fazil Mir, an ambitious software engineering student created a ten level game 'Unending Pursue' and published it recently on the internet which till now had 150 downloads.

The game is freely available on the internet and has witnessed an average rating of 4.5 out of 5

Mir expressed his happiness over the success of game and said that everyone should show their talent to the world.

"What I want to say to the Kashmiri youth, if they have any kind of talent just show it, don't keep it hidden from the world. You just need to show it, show your talent, show what you are, show the talent to the world. Actually I made this game six months before but I was not publishing it. I was just keeping my talent hidden from the world. But my dad told me to go on, just buy it and publish it in the android market and finally I am here," said Mir in Srinagar city of India's northern Jammu and Kashmir state on Thursday (May 09).

The game is such that there are objects scattered here and there and there is a character, Looby, while the player had to place the objects in such a manner so that Looby finds a way out.

Appreciating the work, Suhail Joseph, a friend of Mir said that the development of the IT sector in the province would prove beneficial for the youth.

"IT sector is developing in Kashmir and there is a lot of scope in this. As we saw that my friend developed an android game, so these things show that Kashmir is developing. We want IT sector to keep developing in the state, as it would benefit us a lot," said Joseph.

Mir while studying also worked in software company, which is engaged in the development of IT infrastructure in the state.

Recently, the youth in the valley are getting increasingly involved in developing websites, games and applications.

In order to ensure that the people do not face any problem to contact the prominent personalities, a 23-year-old software engineer Mehvish Mushtaq developed anAndroid application 'Dial Kashmir' which contained over 500 contacts of government and private departments.
