Lessons from India

I have taken to watching some of the discussion programmes aired on NDTV. I have been impressed by the quality of the panelists; the politicians, the public servants, the journalists and others who have participated.

Last night the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah talked about the controversy surrounding the unmarked graves all over the state. Watch it here.

Its rather refreshing to encounter a journalist willing to ask hard questions and a minister willing to give a proper answer.

Are we missing something here?

Addendum: See the debate on Truth and Reconciliation in Kashmir, here. Quite fascinating to see such seemingly familiar issues discussed with the advantage of distance.

IF they have something like that here, it will turn into a circus!

Ha ha, well said Santhoshini.

Have a look at the NDTV site for their recent documentaries on SL, rather interesting.
