REBIRTH

The pain


Of tearing flesh..

Tethered to the cruel jaws

Of destiny.

Each bite ripping off a part,

The body numbs..

Then disintegrates…

Then lies unidentified.



Somewhere far away

A new life sprouts.

The inanimate turns

Into a bundle of joy.

The same eyes..

The same lips…

A new identity.



P.S. : The concept of rebirth has somehow appealed to me. Your views and ideas are welcome.

Is there any viable alternative to AFSPA?

The mere mention of armed forces evokes the image of courage, bravery and discipline in India. However, in north-east India and Jammu and Kashmir, the picture is vastly altered. Military force is synonymous with fear, brutality and suspicion. The main reason behind this contradictory public image is the “draconian” law, Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act. It has vested the armed forces with absolute power mainly to aid fight against terrorism and insurgency. Several unprovoked arrests, tortures, rapes and deaths go unnoticed under the wraps of AFSPA.Unmarked graves have been found in the valley. Fake encounters and disappearances make headlines.  At times, it is a case of mistaken identity. Violence in Jammu and Kashmir has increased since implementation of AFSPA in 1990. Similar incidents are reported from the north-eastern states. 
Jeevan Reddy Commission (2005) had recommended repealing AFSPA and bringing a humanitarian law in place. However, no concrete steps have been taken by th…
