Like weather in Kashmir, situation too seems unpredictable in Kashmir. It may be raining heavily followed by hot sun breeze and then roaring of air gushing in. Though weather has gained some what semblance of stability from past few days situation continues to be erratic, uncertain and whimsical.

Like the pack of cards one by one youth fall to iron from the barrel of gun. Anger churns out it is “war” on streets but of defenseless and powerful. Protests seethe in bringing uneasy calm of military jackboots. Curfewed people, curfewed streets, curfewed air, caging humans to their nests, perhaps sparrows and cuckoos too silent presenting ghostly silence, vicious turn of Sopore and Islamabad after Srinagar with rest writhing in pang and pain.

With gloomy faces and crossed hands starring and gazing at flashing pictures it is foreign secretaries of Indo-Pak shaking hands and smiling faces besides home ministers as well, discussing agony of Kashmiris; no way. Then what; covering their political hotchpotches and hodgepodges leaving the issue of core to gore.

Kashmir a cause celebre and simmering cauldron then how come devoid of mediating diligence, perhaps a result of our helmers disarrayed political wisdom guided by ego and materialistic lust. Tumult and confusion, division and disseverance compounding the destiny to make it look blur. 

What can be the result when sybarites and sycophants are left to govern the nation, a sorrow tale and woeful vale, making of our own, bedamn for our own, our navigators ceased to see the warning leaving us to grieve at the hands of pirates and collaborators of Delhi durbar with pawned and smudged consciousness, you can’t ask for benevolence from these who extract their pound of flesh from the bruised nation.

Time to play the innings with purpose and reason with courage and determination without wimpishness and weakness to regain the lost ground not only to outsmart the opposition but to defeat him on his own turf. A complete proclivity towards the sacred sentiment with devotion and sincerity then we say hail to the martyrs!
