The army issuing a commendation card to Nitin Gogoi who used a Kashmiri as a human shield against stone-pelters betrays total political bankruptcy of Modi regime in handling the Kashmir dystopia. Now brighter Nitins in the army would be emboldened to take a leap - from human shield to lynch for higher rewards, from a card to a glistening shield. All the while, a lame duck Chief Minister refuses to stir from an undeserved siesta.

It marked the end of a spectacular socio-political journey of more than seven glorious decades of a stateswoman who stood tall among her contemporaries.
India is a sovereign, socialist, secular, and democratic Republic. Fortunately our democracy has been successful during all these years largely because of the fact that the people in general are secular, tolerant and law abiding. As a matter of fact, success of secular democracy, a sacred principle, depends on the wisdom and sagacity of the people.
