War Hysteria And The Kashmir Dispute

War Hysteria And The Kashmir Dispute

Be it conventional or non-conventional, the war in both terms is a great catastrophe for the humanity. When we turn the annals of human history great wars have been fought to colonize and conquer the territories but all ended up with the massive humanitarian crisis.

Kashmir And ‘Pivoting’ Toward A Nuclear Holocaust

Kashmir And ‘Pivoting’ Toward A Nuclear Holocaust

This past summer witnessed yet another people’s uprising in one of the longest running, and most ruthless, military occupations in modern times: the Indian occupation of Kashmir.

The Dangers And Importance Of Being A ‘Facebook Revolutionary’

I wash my face and come back, back to the battle that has been raging— that I have been raging. No, its not a physical battle, but a virtual one against and inside a world where jingoism and bigotry are served up on a platter garnished and intricately designed with nationalism. Its a plate I cannot digest, even though to[Read More…]
