No calm in sight

One of the most disturbing features of a conflicted zone can be called as circularity of crisis. The moment it seems that there is a temporary relief in the savagery of the situation, and may be some concrete and result oriented atmosphere was getting created, things slide back into the same abyss of hopelessness. This has been a common feature of long standing conflicts world over, till the time some formidable leadership, with a radical shift in thinking and policy, rescued the people caught in that conflict warp. This perpetual sadness in the atmosphere is so overbearing that one loses all capacity to think, and any traces of optimism are washed out. The only, and the most scary, question that hits each conscientious soul in such a situation is: what is it that the future holds for us. The answers are not very encouraging, that is to begin the debate on this question. But that is not the end of the debate. People, in most trying circumstances, have refused to yield to the thoughts of total hopelessness. People have, with their God gifted depths of thinking, and resilience to stand in the face of a difficult situation, broken new paths. Human societies have, like that proverbial phenix, risen from ashes. But this has happened when hearts and minds were invested in finding our solutions to the problems. And this doesn't happen overnight. The conflict ridden societies need a consistent thinking, and a dispassionate survey of reality that surrounds them. In the moment of trauma one is momentarily denuded of all faculties to reflect. But the test of an individual, or a society, is to hold that moment of trauma and prepare to overcome grief. This, with the purpose of unleashing new, and positive energies. Right now Kashmir is facing a situation where each member of its society holds an enormous responsibility. Self-thinking, not a motivated mental exercise, is the hallmark of a live society.
