It's a pity to see the most capable of our society being consumed in the wilderness of India's babudom, when they could've tried to explore better options internationally. That would've been more rewarding for them as individuals and for Kashmir as a whole. I find it quite logical when I say I want to see the best and brightest of Kashmir to prove their mettle in international competitive exams, rather than restricting themselves to serving the Indian administration.
This year, two very important institutions were damaged -- JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University) in Delhi and JKEDI (Jammu Kashmir Entrepreneurship Development), the scene of a recent militant attack, in Pampore. The soul of the former is under attack and the corporeality of the latter, razed to the ground. I have some questions about both.
