This refers to the article "Why do Kashmiri students lag behind?" by Saalis Maqbool wherein the author has described Kashmiri students as lacking dedication and sincerity. I rather hold a different opinion and believe that Kashmiri students are next to none and have attained great heights and made a mark in the world. If Kashmiri students are not burning midnight oil and lack dedication how do they excel in developed countries like UK, USA, and Saudi Arabia? What is wrong with working from 10 to 4 when people complete their daily duties sincerely? It is actually a policy adopted world over and is compliant with health and safety as well. There are pros and cons to everything and I believe it's time we stop being cynical, think positively, encourage and appreciate Kashmiris.
