Avoid crisis
This refers to the Home Ministers 'no AFSPA revocation'. Our government should act sensibly on this occasion and modify AFSPA. Otherwise people will be in deep crises.Dar AjazNamtehal, Chadura More

History revisited
This refers to "History Revisited" by famous columnist ZGM (GK December 17). The author mentioned an important date in history. It was on the call of late Z.A.Butto and against the stand of Late Sheikh that Kashmiris observed complete shutdown on November 10 1973. Howover all such events have been More

Talented team
This refers to J&K's performance in the current Ranji trophy season. Things started turning in the team's favour after a settlement with Kashmir based players. The aged and out-of-form players were dropped and young talented players given a chance to play. That has helped in a big way and the results More

Seeking justice
I don't understand when Shopian tragedy struck  not many amongst us were  bothered for a petition against the guilty.  Now when same incident has happened in New Delhi. Why are we eager to ask for death penalty. What about Asiya's & Neelofar's family? Did they ever seek justice More

Zero percent
This refers to the news "Eleven schools record zero pass percentage". (GK, 19/12/12). The Govt. needs to take strong action against the teachers of these schools. They have ruined the career of hundreds of students. What do they do throughout the session? Nothing excepting enjoying the mid-day meals More

Biomed engineering

Top ten
This refers to your article "68% qualify" (GK December 14) wherein you have mentioned the names of students who have secured the top 8 positions. I wonder what was the criterion for that. It should either have been the top 3 or the top 10, what made you stop at 8.Faheem Zargar More

Employees strikes
This refers to the employees strike on 14th and 15th Dec. The state Government has almost become immune to these strikes without realizing its negative  implications. Government must fulfill the demands of employees to keep them from further strikes.  Shah Aijaz  Bagbal More

We too
I and the whole J&K condemn the barbaric New Delhi gang-rape incident. The whole media is covering the issue and the whole India is on the boil. But we heard no promises, no fast track trial, no such bang in national media, when incidents of worse nature happened in Kashmir. I don’t argue I inquire More
