Dark Memories of 8th November 2016
By Amit Kushari I don’t think I can ever forget 8th November 2016. The festive season had just ended with Diwali, Kali puja and Bhaiya dooj coming to an end.

I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears……the PM was saying, ” Aaj raat 12 baje ke baad 500 aur 1000 ke note legal tender nahi rahenge.” A few days back I had withdrawn my pension in 500 rupee notes and on the morning of 8th November my wife had withdrawn her arrear pension in 500 rupee notes. My sister had arrived from USA the same day and from the airport she got a bundle of 500 rupee notes in exch...

Playing the politics of obduracy
By K.N. Pandita Obduracy and inflexibility are not the tools to play politics with. The Hurriyat leaders believe their success lies in being obdurate to the hilt. Who forces them to walk the talk? Actually, Jinnah can be called the founder of the politics of obduracy. He was an intelligent person and committed no fault in reading the mind of Indian Muslims correctly. ‘As long as there are fools in the world a clever man should never worry about his bread and butter’, said the great historian Ibn Khaldun, Hurriyatis, think Jinnah has left a model for them to follow. In the new permutation ISI replaces the colonial rulers and Hurriyatis the Muslim League. Therefore the battle lin...

Greater Autonomy: A Step Closer To Azadi?
Straight Talk
By K B Jandial After long time, autonomy debate has come to the centre stage of J&K and national political discourse, mainly due to P Chidambaram's support for ‘Greater Autonomy’ for J&K, broadly calling ‘azadi’ seekers as autonomy supporters.

Chidambaram’s statement has opened up a Pandora Box with politicians of all hues joining the fray- for or against autonomy- cum –azadi for ‘restive’ J&K. While PM Modi didn’t miss the opportunity to condemn the former Union Home Minister and a senior lawyer for batting for “azadi” seekers, Dr. Farooq Abdullah slammed one and...

Autonomy debate continues
By Amit Kushari Recently former Home and Finance Minister of India, Shri P Chidambaram, made a statement that dialogue should be held with Kashmiris and Jammu & Kashmir should be offered a higher degree of autonomy under article 370 of the Indian Constitution.

After all , a very large number of Indians do perceive the autonomy demand of Kashmiris as somewhat anti national, though not unconstitutional. Indians often ask, “Why can’t Kashmiris live in peace without autonomy like the other 29 nationalities living in India as well as the D...
