Kashmir, What to do What to Leave

If there are three parallel lines of crisis in Kashmir today, I can draw many more. Resettlement issue of Kashmiri pandits, terrorism and youth employment, to choose any one of them on a priority basis is useless. There is already a disagreement because the obvious is what is visible to the naked eye and it is to negate the resettlement of Kashmiri pandits citing that they did not enough worked around during terrorism. The beguile part of Kashmiri villages still have militants on loose trips and the leaders like Masarat Alam do not refrain from playing with the cold set in the hearts. Both we and the leaders know that fire and cold are equally destructible and thus, when religious extremism has to be dealt with, India lets Kashmiri pandits too decide for a decent future for themselves.

Terrorism is still a rampant issue and it gets uglier in their seasons and reasons. To think of above consequences, our first instinct tells us to focus on the normalcy in the valley which however, cannot come without a genuine intellect and passion. Religious extremism has to be dealt with just as terrorism is getting no ground in the valley.

Should we then start thinking of Kashmir youth as scapegoats to this dharma/karma epic dilemma? Government is still not sure and insistent about the township for Kashmiri pandits but since this is no freedom war we fought for India, we cannot accuse the general public that they cannot live a respectable if not normal life.

No roof on head, empty stomachs, and all the dangers in incessant bad weather, it is very exemplary and in fact, are we keeping with them as a nation is debatable. Pakistan accuses us that we are not doing good to them as a sovereign nation and yes, we are not. Looking at the circumstances, why the government has not reserved some quota in government sector for kashmiri youth in Delhi and other states. They are Indians, well qualified and verified as civil citizens, then what is eluding them.
Giving them jobs out of their own states is not catastrophic, well there is good business in Kashmir and no one can replace this. Next, this idea can also be implemented for North-Eastern States like Assam, Arunachal Pradesh. The innovative ones may even include a perspective based on ethics. There is fair in our city where the prayer flags form an intrinsic part of the merchants' exhibition. We love their culture as very general, normal people. But what if the major production houses like garments, kitchen supplies, appliances take a clue from them, employ them and make instrumental in the supply chain.

The ideas are abundant and this comes being from a sovereign nation and besides, you know we will learn to enjoy, live and bask in our glory.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…
