Prioritize ‘social’

Prioritize ‘social’

Blame it on the political turmoil and the subsequent violence, Jammu and Kashmir serves a typical example of any conflict ravaged country. There is corruption and lack of accountability here. Policies are wrong and institutions either non-existent or week. And to cap it all, everyone is as if on a looting spree because the vested […]

Heed Allah’s message this Eid

Heed Allah’s message this Eid

Eid-ul-Fitr marks the end of the fasting month of Ramazan. This has to do with the communal aspects of the fast, which expresses many of the basic values of the Muslim community — empathy for the poor, charity, worship, steadfastness, patience etc. Fasting is also believed to extol fundamental distinctions, lauding the power of the […]

Forest state without forest policy

Forest state without forest policy

The wanton loot and plunder of the state’s forest wealth is common place knowledge and one could say without any fear of contradiction that every inhabitant of this God-forsaken lad is aware of it. It would be only wondrous to believe that those heading the Forest department would be unaware. Indeed they are the ones […]

Learn from Ramazan

Learn from Ramazan

The amount and extent of institutionalized corruption in Jammu and Kashmir quite reasonably justifies its position among top in the list of most-corrupt states. Not a single day here passes without some officials (almost always only the proverbial small fry) landing in the anti-corruption agencies’ dragnets, though it very rarely happens that the ones held […]
