DATELINE KASHMIR: The Partition Plans 

Romeet K Watt


THAT the Kashmiri separatist bandwagon spearheaded by the All Party Hurriyat Conference (APHC) is leaving no stone unturned in impressing upon the United States (hereafter referred to as You-Know-Who to borrow Harry Potterism) to ‘force’ New Delhi to make ‘concessions’ on Kashmir, clearly indicates their extreme anxiety at .......More >>>>

Yet another egg on Vajpayee's face !!

Sunita Vakil


There is an old saying that you can fool some of the people all the time, and all the people some of the time; but you cannot fool all of the people all the time. It is entirely possible that Mr. Atal Behari Vajpayee is not acquainted with the fine nuances of this old adage, barring which there is no logical explanation for his penchant to create.......More >>>>

J&K POLICE: The stark truth

What others say......


The disclosure that a group of Jammu and Kashmir policemen were involved in the killing of a senior National Conference leader last September has confirmed our worst suspicions.

J & K: From 'healing touch' to 'soft border'

Sunita Vakil


Playing dove with his soft image and healing touch policy, Mufti Syed advocates the opening of Indo-Pak border points in J & K state. Given the fact that there is no perceptible decline in militancy, one cannot ignore the hazardous repercussions the move is likely to bring forth.

India, China, forging an Asia’s Century

Swaraj Singh


The Indian Prime Minister Vajpayee’s trip to China is one of the most significant historical events of the century. The 21st century is destined to be Asia’s century.

The HOLY Double-Cross

T R Jawahar


Insiders and people in the know of things claim that the real reasons were the usual pedestrian stuff, namely, corruption and nepotism and that the game was up. However, when the Madras University VC 'put in' his papers a couple of days back his act was sought to be given a lofty coating: That he ha d done so owing to the recent papal condemnation .......More >>>>

Saffron through the political prism

Ram Puniyani


Time has come for India and Pakistan to focus on the real problems of their people. It seems that so far they have been unable to sort out their priorities .

Kamlaish Vakil


Amid the revival of  militancy by the separatist organisations and its mentors across the borders Government of India is preparing blueprints for revival of tourism industry in the state. The once flourishing  and the number one revenue earning industry which attracted millions of foreign and  domestic tourists is lying in shambles for the last fifteen years due to militancy.......More >>>>

TRUST PAKISTAN: Got to be joking !  

Sunita Vakil


In its efforts to appear as a peacenik, Pakistan is trying to create the impression that it is genuinely interested in smoking the peace pipe with India. Given that the conflicting signals have already started emerging from Pakistan, the question arises- can we rely upon the sincerity of our slippery neighbour this time around since the past record has been less than reassuring? .......More >>>>
