Time. Flies.

किसीको मुक़म्मल जहाँ  नहीं मिलता ,
कहीं ज़मीन , तो कहीं आसमां  नहीं  मिलता ।

2014 has arrived and five days have already gone by. 
Gone with the cold wave it seems. 
Last year was good.
Two good holiday trips, a weekend trip to Mumbai, getting a first hand experience of  'corporate healthcare' (as an attendant) and the usual drama - that is how I can sum up 2013.
Well, let bygones be bygones. 
A fresh look towards future solves many problems. As if they never were. 

My wish list for 2014 :

Not this year :( 

Done. Sometime in March.

Done. Sometime in February.

Will continue :)

Last but not the least -

She'll be with me in April and May. Rest of the months - fingers crossed !

I hope the important wishes will be granted sooner. 

And wishing everyone in the universe an incredibly fulfilling year.

And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

After  a while, she thought that tears were a part of the eyes.

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…
