Nine soldiers were killed in a blast in Kashmir on July 19. I learned about this tragic outrage via a tiny news item in my July 20 paper. (I was especially interested because this happened on a road I took in 2004, on my way to learn about a soldier who died similarly then).
For four days now, I've tried various ways to find the names of these dead soldiers. No luck, though I'm still trying.
In contrast, this morning Argal, Kulaste and Bhagora are front page names across this vast land, along with hand-wringing about Parliamentary Democracy in peril in this vast land, maybe even near death. (As if what happened with these gents is either a new or unusual story).
Makes me wonder.
