Raj Pandit says Namaskar Mahara In fact the founding author of the Kashmiri Pandit almanac (Vijayeshwar Panchang)was none other than Jyotishi Aftab Sharma (1887-1966), a native Kashmir Pandit. Any KP worth their salt buys a copy of this almanac as an essential part of the Bharun thali used in the KP New Year Puja (Navreh). Every copy of the Vijayeshwar Panchang has a picture of Pandit Aftab Sharma on the back of the front cover.

Chandan Sharma says Sharma is vry common surname which every brahman can use , but a lot of kashmiri brahmans are also have the same surname "SHARMA", But it doesn,t mean tht only kashmiri brahmans can use Sharma , A non Kashmiri can also be a Sharma. As i am a kashmiri Brahman and i use Sharma as my surname . but a lot of my frnds who are not kashmiri are also useing the same surname .

Rohan says Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma(Renowned Santoor Vadak)is himself a 'Sharma' & is a renowned Kashmiri Pandit. 'Sharma' though is a common sirname used by Brahmins in North India however some people whose actual sirname is not Sharma also use it as a sign of common popular brahmin sirname.
