Who would be New Delhi's interlocutor? 

Romeet K WATT


It is as good as official. The 'Kashmir Committee' set-up by Ram Jethmalani is on the verge of being done away with, after Jethmalani chose to step-in as the defence council for S.A.R Gilani, one of the prime accused in the attack on the Indian Parliament, much against the council of the North Block, which was providing benefaction of  .......More >>>>

Removing Regional Imbalances in J&K

Balraj Puri


Removing imbalances in the development of the three regions of the state is not only one of the principal objectives of the present government, which its every minister reiterates every now and then, but also its compulsion. For the coalition partners represent different regions. Their unity depends upon balancing regional .......More >>>>

Springtime crawling back in Kashmir

Sunita Vakil


Strange as it may sound today, Kashmir is tottering back to normalcy. One earnestly hopes that the ‘healing touch’ of the state government goes a long way in putting Kashmir on the tract of peace and healing the wounds of a bruised state. It was perhaps for the second time in the history of Kashmir that the true and beautiful  ......More >>>>

J & K: The inside story

Romeet K WATT


The present dispensation headed by Mufti Sayeed in the state of Jammu and Kashmir is moving ahead with positive strides, nonetheless, along the way there are a few things that have taken place, by design or naively, which may have staid ramifications for the expectations of the government to translate its electoral  .......More >>>>

APHC has no option, but to initiate talks

Romeet K WATT


All Party Hurriyat Conference, a.k.a Kul Jamaat Hurriyat Conference in the local lingo, and better known by its acronym, APHC, is often portrayed as the ‘political face’ of the separatist bandwagon in Kashmir, with both the national as well as the international media, time and again exaggerating the significance of the .......More >>>>

The Korean peninsula and the West

Sawraj Singh


Several years ago, I presented a paper, “Asia’s Century.” I predicted that Asia was going to become the leading region in the 21st century; China was going to become the largest economy; and Korea is going to reunite and emerge as a very powerful country. Seven out of the ten largest economies of the world will be in Asia. Later on.......More >>>>

U.S: Engaging in double speak

Romeet K WATT


This response is not an antagonism of US foreign policy per se, but a pragmatic  and judicious examination of why US is doing what it’s doing, purposely in south-east Asia in general, and more specifically in the Indian sub-continent. Mr. Richard Hass appears to have based his assertions around much used and tired America .....More >>>>

Defending offenders

T R Jawahar


With national dailies sticking up unabashedly for illegal aliens for the simple reason that they happen to be 'secular missionaries', the communal outfield in the country does seem totally queer. So, asking an inveterate overstayer, a tout of a faith masquerading as a tourist, to get out tantamounts to impingement of religious freedom, or so say.......More >>>>

Quid pro quo diplomacy

Sunita Vakil


Taking a vindictive stand to India’s decision to expel four Pakistani diplomats, Islamabad returned the complement by giving the marching orders to the same number of Indian High Commission staffers. Pakistan’s retaliatory decision of expelling Indian diplomats has arrived not a day too soon. Indeed, it was not quite unexpected .......More >>>>
