Tinderbox Of Insecurities - Bomb Ticking
B L Saraf Let us face it . Jammu and Kashmir is sitting on a volcano of insecurities of various dimensions and different intensity . Forget about the external dimension , situation within is deteriorating so fast that no one can predict what turn it will take . For sure , if corrective measures are not taken in right earnestness , it won’ be pleasant one . We are insecure - the destabilizing undercurrents are quite palpable . But , as told by the ancestors , life goes on . We do live – not by years or weeks but by minutes . Life just meanders on . Even in the fleeting moments of living we feel so surrounded by the artific...

Having the realization that ‘new years ‘ brought nothing ‘ new ‘ to us in the past, it is too much optimism to crave for 2019’s benign indulgence. Here, Faiz’s poetic lament becomes appropriate; Aasman badla hai afsoos na badlee hai zameen Ek Hindsay kaa badlana koi jidaa...

Intriguingly, this demand was vehemently raised by those political parties which have boycotted the recently concluded Municipal election, on flimsy ground of Centre’s stand on controversial Article 35A which stood challenged before the Apex Court four years ago. Interestingly, this issue is not even talked about by these parties today and r...

Challenges facing Police leadership in India
Restore centrality of Police Station
Dr Ashok Bhan The brutal killing of Bulandhahar SHO Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh has once again brought into sharp focus urgency of reforms as well as capacity building so that Indian police can meet the current and future challenges.

A recent CHRI study reveals that, more than a decade down the line, there is not a single case of full compliance and that the State Governments have “blatantly rejected, ignored or diluted significant features of the directive”.
