On the road in the US northwest as I am, it's been hard to keep up with all the Indian writing I'd like to keep up with. But over this past weekend, I read two articles in particular: Swaminathan Aiyar's Independence Day for Kashmir, and Vir Sanghvi's Think the Unthinkable.
Not that it makes me particularly pleased or anything, but just over a year ago, I won first prize in a contest run by the estimable Indian National Interest blog, the theme of the contest being "Jammu and Kashmir: Solve". The essay I submitted suggested just the kind of thing Aiyar and Sanghvi do. You can read it here.
We think we are a proud, self-confident country, we in today's India. When will that India find the fibre to address Kashmir as it must?
