Simmering cauldron in the Himalayas
By K.N. Pandita We shall be entering twenty-eighth year of sponsored Kashmir insurgency. The bloodshed on either side has neither thrown out India nor brought in Pakistan. The position of Kashmir uprising is far weaker today than what it was in 1990s or early 20s. The world community is convinced that Kashmir is part of Islamic Theo-fascism. However, Kashmir leadership of all hues will continue exploitation of militancy to extract political mileage. Pakistan sponsored jihadism has done tremendous harm to the cause of Kashmir secessionists. World community clubs them with Islamic revivalists, the appendix to Wahhabi/Salafi Islamist line. The US and European Union reco...

Halls of nuisance
By B L Saraf In Jammu, marriage season is in full bloom. And, we the residents are going through hell. Yes, some may see incongruity writ large when words like ‘marriage ‘ and ‘ hell ‘are put in a sequential vein in one statement.

Even Alexandra Dumas’s famous words seem to suggest so: “The chains of marriage are so heavy that it takes two to bear them, and sometimes three.” Experiencing the ordeal of attending the ceremony, one may say that the whole society is burdene...
