Integrate Kashmir with the Indian Union

What others say......


Just when you thought that the terrorist violence in Kashmir was tapering off, the ISI has reminded us that it is alive and well - and very much in the business of fomenting mayhem in this country. While faraway the US is engaged in a pre-emptive war to neutralise the threat from Saddam Hussein, who may or may not .......More >>>>

Pak policies,  illogical & self-defeating

Yashwant Sinha


In international politics, it is said that no country can escape the reality of the geography that surrounds them. One can change friends but not neighbours.

Sawraj Singh


It is becoming increasingly clear that the Iraqi crisis is going to fundamentally change the old world order. With the fall of the Soviet Union, a bipolar world changed into a uni-polar world. But, the uni-polar world does not truly reflect the ground realities of the contemporary world . Actually, multiple centers of .......More >>>>

Vajpayee's five years in office

K G Joglekar


The last five years have been a period of challenges and assurances for India and the Prime Minister, Shri Atal Behari Vajpayee. The nation was able to weather the storms that rose at home and abroad because of the determination of its people and the leadership of Shri Vajpayee. This compliment may seem strange but .......More >>>>
