Leaders of rhetoric

Leaders of rhetoric

Past nearly three decades of political turmoil in Kashmir have produced a whole new breed of political leadership – both in the separatist and the mainstream camps  — who could be aptly described as the ‘leaders of rhetoric’. The reason being that they are suffering a massive disconnect with the common masses as a result […]

Dialogue is a must

Dialogue is a must

Former chief minister of J&K, Omar Abdullah’s statement that any proper dialogue between India and Pakistan would have to wait to be realised at the end of India’s general election in May 2019 sounds logical. The NDA government is in election gear and whatever it does in remaining six months of its tenure will be […]

Once again the frailty of state’s infrastructure was exposed. While one may agree that the snowfall was untimely but it was not unexpected as the […]

Let ADR system be given a try

“Justice delayed is justice denied”. But this saying, overused into a cliché, fails to change anything when it comes to practical delivery of justice. Had it not been so, certainly the situation as for the pendency of cases in the courts waiting final arbitration would not have been as mammoth as it is today. It […]
