Kashmir- the concave side

Trespassers
Hi friends, as march marches past, as our country marches up in the economical survey and as we look to march to the top of the world, the northern part of our country seems to face a disturbance wave which had been hidden in the unrecognized pages of Indian media. Kashmir is a very important and the most controversial state in India on the international arena. Every year the influential party members in Kashmir along with several civilians hoist the Pakistan National Flag on 14th August and burn the Indian National Flag on streets. But the media hesitate to disclose these flags, instead keep presenting the masala items as breaking news. Strong forces in Kashmir support this and the Indian politicians in Delhi seem unaware of the situation. Those who are aware or pretend to be unaware, stand pity-fully confronting the miserable condition there. Its already known that more than half of Kashmir is in the hands of Pakistan & China. Problems of this kind in the Indian Kashmir questions the decision of Pandit Nehru of dividing Bengal & Punjab during Partition of India, and not dividing Kashmir as it was his home state. India is the only country in the world where the National Flag is burnt. This never becomes breaking news in the media though it surely becomes an issue if the map of India is printed on the cricket ground or Sachin cuts a cake made of the Indian Tri-colour or even if Mandira Bedi wears a Tri-colour sari. All these remind of the Media Black-out which prevails in Afghanistan and the in-activeness of media in India before 1985.
