One can foresee a government without an ideology – particularly in an Indian context after the coalition era had set in - but to say that a governance module can be without an element of politics is to stretch credulity, too, far. Governance is the job of a political e...

Why should Pandits return to Kashmir ?
By Amit Kushari I cannot understand why the Government of India is so much interested in taking some Pandits back to Kashmir valley. What will India gain by incurring a huge expenditure in trying to rehabilitate the Pandits once again in the Kashmir valley? Do our leaders in Delhi really believe that India’s case will be strengthened in Kashmir if around 50,000 Kashmiri Hindus could be kept in specially created safe zones or smart cities, just as endangered animals are kept in sanctuaries or zoological parks? This is a ridiculous idea and I am shocked that the Government cou...

It is for the first t...

Is Kashmir reading itself to a "summer of discontent" ?
By Rigzin Jora By their own admission the PDP and the BJP are poles apart in their ideologies. Parties win mandate on the basis of their manifestos which are broadly in tune with their ideology .

Atal Bihari Vajpayee led an alliance of 24 or more parties with no common ideological underpinnings. So also V P Singh, who took immense pride in managing contradictions . Mufti Sayeed who serve...
