President’s convocation address in Srinagar
K N Pandita The addresses of a Head of the State at formal functions are usually non-political and non-controversial. The University of Kashmir had the privilege of listening to the President of India on the occasion of its Convocation last week. As a formal address in the strict sense of the term, it was superb. But addressing a galaxy of academics and intellectuals in a sensitive place like Srinagar and even guardedly referring to tricky historical situations or ideas asks for exceptional circumspection. Kashmir Valley’s history is wrapped in a plethora of intricacies and controversies made worse by subjective historiography. Aberrations happen unwittingly. VVIPs generally ...

Coexistence, a unifying factor for Indians
Asad Mirza A recent survey throws contradictory and unbelievable findings, yet it also underlines how an Indian really feels. For most political parties, sociologists and psephologists what a common Indian on the street thinks matters most.

Though the political parties are able to set the narrative for their own narrow agendas yet they are unable to control the common perceptions and thinking among the populace. Studies like a recent one by the US-based Pew Research Centre’s Survey of Religion across India, helps not just the narrative formulat...
