Great contribution
This refers to M Ashraf’s article on Prof. M S Khuroo. I first time met Dr. Khuroo in 1962. A lean-thin, shy and silent teenager with the typical Soopori accent absorbed on a cadaver on the dissecting table, unmindful of the pungent formalin smell and colorful feminine gender around! Desire for learning More

Government exposed
This refers to the news titled 'No end to winter woes in developed Kashmir'. A few inches of snow in plains exposed the tall claims of government. Road clearance started at noon and still some roads are yet to be cleared in Sopore town. It shows government’s failure at every level.Urfan Rashid More

Exploiting contractuals
Every year highly qualified persons are appointed by education department for teaching purpose at plus 2 level and in colleges on academic arrangement for the session. They work with dedication. They even teach 9th and 10th standard classes. It’s painful that these contractuals are paid meagre salary More

Punishing whom?
This refers to the line in an Advertisement of the Higher Education Deptt. on 19-Jan for Appointment of College Lecturers. It says: “as far as possible, the candidate higher in the merit shall be appointed in city/urban colleges and those lower in merit shall be engaged in rural/peripheral colleges More

Be friends
This refers to”Fragile, handle with care”by Firdous Syed. Pakistan will definitely come out from this mess. India should act as a Big Brother at this crucial juncture of Pakistan’s history. In case India and Pakistan leadership resolve to become friends, that will be better for both. Prince More

Deserving acclaim
This refers to the article The scientist deserving acclaim”, by M.Ashraf (GK,16-1-2013). The author is right that we forget and ignore our own people who otherwise have been recognised, honoured and acclaimed globally. Dr.M.S.Khuroo has remained my classfellow and I remember when a great teacher in More

Republic Day
This refers to the Republic Day to be held on 26th jan. How can a country show off its military power which can’t protect its women. Rizwan Rashidrizwanrr89@gmail.com More

Tall claims
The recent snowfall has once again exposed the tall claims of administration that it is highly prepared for any challenge. What sort of administration we have in this part of the world that gets paid to the hilt but doesn’t perform when it matters most. Eesar Mehdi More
