However, to Jammu’s credit , despite the grave provocations it stood steadfast on the principles of secularism and syncretism : so much so that people from all corners of the state and of all the beliefs found peace and solac...

Straight talk
By K B Jandial After Jammu Chambers of Commerce and Industry unprecedented Bandh on AIIMS, it is now Bar Association Jammu (BAJ), another apolitical body has taken the movement under its leadership to safeguard the interests of Jammu.

Governance, not ideology
By B L Saraf Whenever PDP – BJP government is confronted with the inherent irreconcilability of some issues, the managers of the Alliance try to wriggle out on the standard statement. The statement that 'ours is an alliance for governance and not of ideology or politics .'

Why should Pandits return to Kashmir ?

This is a ridiculous idea and I am shocked that the Government cou...

It is for the first t...
