Irony of Jammu’s legendary name…

every day we hear and read so many terror attacks in Jammu &kashmir,

recent sopore killings and riots…

and to the shooting of manzoor…

how long is this gonna go?

why aren’t we concerned? Have we gone numb to our fellow citizen’s suffering

is it bcos.. we are far away?

is it bcos we are  safe and @peace ?

is it bcos we have our own troubles?

The Wikipedia states….

According to legend, Jammu was founded by Raja Jamboolochan in the 14th century BC. During one of his hunting campaigns he reached the Tawi River where he saw a goat and a lion drinking water at the same place. The king was impressed and decided to set up a town after his name, Jamboo. With the passage of time, the name was corrupted and became “Jammu”.

At times i feel that India & Pakisthan  are just using Jammu – Kashimr as a political / communal scape goat…

In this issue we have to blame ourselves rather than politicians…

I feel India – the common people need to be aware of Kashmir’s pain.
