Voices of sanity and peace from Kashmir
In spite of all the provocations and hurt, in spite of all the violence and stone pelting, the senior students from Kashmir are here for an amazing dialogue on peace and progress. They are pursuing courses in journalism, engineering, social sciences and other streams of science and technology.
They are full of enthusiasm, brilliance and have so much to say, in their own way, in their own words. Lets listen to them. All they need is a patient hearing and an honest dialogue. Canâ€™t we have them feel comfortable and have their say in a free democratic environment?
