Back in the 90s, when Jammu & Kashmir used to be even more violent than Mortal Kombat or Madworld, it was pretty tough to imagine things returning to normalcy. In the time when it was constantly being rattled by whatever could go boom, the spirit of Kashmir emerged as the ultimate sufferer. The nauseous cocktail of militants and anti-national elements not only resulted in the bloodbath but also strangulated the essentials of any progressive society – education, healthcare, infrastructure development and youth empowerment.
However, considering the current situation of J&K, one might ask:
Indian Army, is the answer.
Having championed the fundamentals of War and Peace, it foremostly hushed the guns of terrorists by scattering counterinsurgency grid in entire affected areas and then launched Operation Sadbhavana to connect with people struck by instability.
