Kashmir, What to do What to Leave

If there are three parallel lines of crisis in Kashmir today, I can draw many more. Resettlement issue of Kashmiri pandits, terrorism and youth employment, to choose any one of them on a priority basis is useless. There is already a disagreement because the obvious is what is visible to the naked eye and it is to negate the resettlement of Kashmiri pandits citing that they did not enough worked around during terrorism. The beguile part of Kashmiri villages still have militants on loose trips and the leaders like Masarat Alam do not refrain from playing with the cold set in the hearts. Both we and the leaders know that fire and cold are equally destructible and thus, when religious extremism has to be dealt with, India lets Kashmiri pandits too decide for a decent future for themselves.

Terrorism is still a rampant issue and it gets uglier in their seasons and reasons. To think of above consequences, our first instinct tells us to focus on the normalcy in the valley which however, cannot come without a genuine intellect and passion. Religious extremism has to be dealt with just as terrorism is getting no ground in the valley.

Should we then start thinking of Kashmir youth as scapegoats to this dharma/karma epic dilemma? Government is still not sure and insistent about the township for Kashmiri pandits but since this is no freedom war we fought for India, we cannot accuse the general public that they cannot live a respectable if not normal life.

No roof on head, empty stomachs, and all the dangers in incessant bad weather, it is very exemplary and in fact, are we keeping with them as a nation is debatable. Pakistan accuses us that we are not doing good to them as a sovereign nation and yes, we are not. Looking at the circumstances, why the government has not reserved some quota in government sector for kashmiri youth in Delhi and other states. They are Indians, well qualified and verified as civil citizens, then what is eluding them.
Giving them jobs out of their own states is not catastrophic, well there is good business in Kashmir and no one can replace this. Next, this idea can also be implemented for North-Eastern States like Assam, Arunachal Pradesh. The innovative ones may even include a perspective based on ethics. There is fair in our city where the prayer flags form an intrinsic part of the merchants' exhibition. We love their culture as very general, normal people. But what if the major production houses like garments, kitchen supplies, appliances take a clue from them, employ them and make instrumental in the supply chain.

The ideas are abundant and this comes being from a sovereign nation and besides, you know we will learn to enjoy, live and bask in our glory.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

Has Always Been

First Published on Poem Hunter

Once wide open
does seems the world is
riding on breeze
for a moment of thought

my pen is pouring
celebration of life, an afterthought
in own musing of ideas
where a tear is no longer a fear
nothing devises as found in

eternal or has always been.

Open-Ended Questions and Advaita Vedanta

What we decipher through eyes could almost be a truth but is there need to confirm to everything. Prior to internet the world we lived in, we exchanged information in professional spheres. Social life was largely restricted in community sense. The cyberspace is today filled with ambiguous energy yet we are associating in new manner of extended social life on basis of interests, hobbies, etc.  Knowledge as we know of now has changed in its meaning and deliverance. As we are exposed, many open-ended questions arise. Knowledge is a continuing factor and when it persists we understand that we should and can avoid further difficulties. Thus these open-ended questions about world chaos, social indiscipline, issues like pollution, gender equality/parity become a consolatory afterthought. What should we be doing next? There are no active and legalized platforms where we can share and elucidate on various thought-provoking scenarios. Importantly when we find a case related to these scenarios …
