Kashmir, terror and conflict

The latest news of Burhan Wani's death and the kind of rage it led to is really shocking and saddening.
I don't understand why certain sections in the society are sympathising with Burhan Wani and his death. He was a terrorist, found with AK47s, was instigating the people of Kashmir against India and the Indian Army simply did their job by shooting him. He was a trained professional, head of Hizbul Mujahideen, a terrorist organization acting against India and knew how to deal with and handle guns and fight.

For a certain section of Kashmir, he was like a freedom fighter, fighting to create an Independent Kashmir, a jihadist, separatist, funded, trained and supported by Pakistan to fight against India.

Instead of being grateful to our Army because of whom we are sitting comfortably in our homes with a free will to comment, the so called pseudo liberals are out there demeaning them. 1000s of soldiers lose their lives and sacrifice themselves for our safety and nobody gives a damn about it.

A terrorist is killed and people lose their senses and try to portray him as an innocent being. The pro pakistani people living in India, are trying to spread hate by portraying him as innocent. Such people, who have been reaping benefits of being an Indian citizen and yet been supporting ISI and pakistan are the main reason which add fuel to the fire of the conflicts going on in our country.

You know there is something wrong with the mentality of the people, when they feel that Burhan Wani was a martyr who gave is life fighting against the Indian Army. The locals in Kashmir throwing stones at the Army who tries to protect them, shows the kind of deep rooted prejudice in the minds of Kashmiris against Indian government and Indian Army.

In the past, people have supported terrorists like Afzal Guru and Yakub Memon. Something is definitely going wrong somewhere and we need to act upon it.

The issues surrounding Kashmir are not new. The beautiful state which is said to be as beautiful as heaven on earth because of it's nature and scenic beauty is now tainted with blood, gore, violence and hate. It is now a predominantly Muslim dominated state, (where the Kashmiri Pandits were forced to flee in 1990, tortured and mercilessly killed by terror gangs.) so a certain section of Kashmiris do have prejudice against India. 

Pakistan has been instigating the people of Kashmir against India, Indian Govermnent and Indian Army. India has always considered Kashmir as it's own but some terrorist elements do not consider it so. 

India will always love Kashmir and this message needs to be sent across strongly to the Kashmiris who have been brainwashed into thinking that India is against them. As an Indian I am pained when Kashmiris say they hate India, because for us, Kashmir has always been a part of this nation. 

The hate is deep rooted and it will take a long time to resolve. Till then, we need to tackle the likes of Burhan Wani and kill them, to protect our India from crumbling. We cannot let such people spread their violent ideologies and sit back and do nothing. The number of Jihadists and separatists is on the rise day by day. We cannot allow young children being filled with hatred and instead of focusing on growing themselves as individuals, they are turning to violence and militancy, destroying their own future. 

What saddens me is the pseudo liberals questioning the Army from the comforts of their home. They are lending support to terrorists who are spreading hate in Kashmir by sympathising with them. 

This makes the terror groups more stronger in their beliefs since such pro pakistan and anti- indian elements are the silent backbone of these hate filled terror outfits. 

Pakistan itself is a nation which suffers terror attacks from time to time. Yet it continues in it's anti- India mission and does whatever it can to attack us. 

We need to tackle the Kashmir issue by spreading awareness that "terror" and "Azadi" is not a solution and also by trying to hunt down terrorists like Burhan Wani and Hafis Saeed who act as role models for young Kashmiris and try and brainwash them into spreading violence and sacrificing their lives for nothing. The Hurriyat is also a body which is responsible for brainwashing young Kasmiris into fighting for a 'cause'

I agree Kashmir and Kashmiris have suffered a lot due to politics going on in the two countries of India and Pakistan. They have a long history of sufferings, but that does not mean that violence is the solution to their problems. Turning to violence is only going to increase their hardships and troubles.
Putting forth their views in a non-violent manner and trying to find solutions through talks should be considered as an alternative.

To those journalists, writers and media personnel who have been spreading violence in the form of their work, shame on you. Instead of trying to promote peace, they are adding fuel to the fire of conflict and prejudice. 

I am a proud citizen of India who is proud of the efficiency of the Army in tackling the terror forces in Kashmir and even then, yes, I do empathize with the situation of the people in Kashmir and hope they see how worthless it is to turn to violence, since it is going to backfire on them and increase their agony. 

The pen is mightier than the sword and hence I write this article as an heartfelt piece on behalf of thousands like me who love India irrespective of its flaws and want it to progress as a nation together and are against being divided on the basis of religion, caste or culture. 

I hope my article tries to counter hate and violence and promote peace, love and humanity, which most of us want and cherish. 


Kashmir has a sad history which I feel you don't understand. Neither Pakistan nor India understood it at any time. Both screwed the people for their own political and/or religious motives. The Indian Army also literally screwed them. I'm sorry if I sound antinational. But the truth is that Kashmir stands totally alienated from India today. The tragedy is that they are not going to be happy even if they succeed in secession and join Pakistan.

@Tomichan Matheikal.. I know it is very difficult to understand the situation in Kashmir, but disrespecting the Army is not an option and neither is turning to violence. They may have suffered a lot, but they are adding to their suffering by turning towards violence. I agree politics has had a very negative impact and Kashmiris have suffered much, but the problem should be resolved with talks and awareness and if they want to, they can put forth their views in a non-violent way. Violence is not an answer to any issue of theirs, it's just going to get worse for them.

Prema's Journey...

Hey everybody! Today we have a very special person with us.

Meet Prema Malhotra.  Prema lives in the United States of America along with her family. She has two brothers.
She is just like everyone of us. A slight difference is- Prema was adopted when she was a child.
Prema has willingly agreed to open up to us & share bits of her life.
Let me tell you, after Prema came to know that she was adopted, her thirst to search for her original parents started. She travelled from USA to India, in search of her roots. She came to know that she was relinquished by her birth mother two days after her birth.
The reason was that her natural mother was abandoned and left alone by her natural father. Later on she was adopted by her current father & mother.  Prema then started to feel that she really should meet her birth mother.
The struggle Prema went through to search for her birth mother is something one cannot explain. Did she then, meet her natural mother??? She has done extensive resea…

conductor the other day a 'pepsi-cola' seller, as I grew up I wanted to be a pilot so that I could fly a plane . Then I felt like joining the army once. I realised that if I want to be so many people at once, I should be an actor! An actor can be whoever he wants and that's…

4 simple ways to get out of the Comfort Zone.

Hello everyone!
So it's the first blog post of 2018! It's already been almost two months into the year and I hope the year is going good for all.

  I would like to bring to you 4 very simple ways to get out of your comfort zone and expand your horizons.

What is the comfort zone?
A comfort zone is a zone for each one of us where we feel safe or at ease, where we use only tried and tested methods which can yield only the same type of result.

Why get out of it?
Getting out of the zone, means essentially adding more value to your life, growth in terms of personal and professional life. It basically means expanding your horizons, facing your fears and doing something you have not done before, to make your life more meaningful than it is now.

In fact, writing a blog post on something like this, is me getting out my comfort zone as well, because it's different from what I usually write.
