Why Kashmir's Obsession With the Civil Services Is An Unhealthy Trend

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.
