Let the state deconstruct the violence and fear which it has created by the power of force; let us build peace in the minds of humans so that no mother and father will receive the coffin of their child. Let peace be given a chance to decrease the demands of coffins that has tremendously increased because of violence.

She returns to Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay’s forest-centred novel Aranyak to unearth the mystery of man’s tense relationship with the forest. It is at once a place for finding repose as it is a resource to be exploited. Staying inside a forest all by herself enables Roy to experience the communality of trees, their shunning of individual prominence.

If the transition time from one class to another for a teacher is 10 minutes on an average, then a school loses 7*10 = 70 minutes of intended instructional time regularly. It amounts to a yearly loss of 236 days * 70 minutes = 16520 minutes i.e.; 275 hours of intended instructional time yearly by a single institution.

For someone who earlier did not relish Bengali cuisine as it was not hot (she liked her food to be), she now likes it. She loves dishes that have a little bit of sugar added to it. A vegetable she detested was the pumpkin; it is her favourite now.

In comparing and assessing partitions of British India and Palestine, one can see that different identities saw an opportunity for their national visions to materialize and all clusters used violence (communal) in defending their visions against the counterparts. The study has relevance for the modern period, because there is no stability in Palestine/Israel and India/Pakistan.

Draupadi is anything but ideal. All fire and brimstone, she rages against the system that put her in terrible situations. Quite unlike Sita who accepts what comes her way with a meekness that is unnerving, Draupadi chooses to speak her mind. An observation that struck me with respect to Draupadi was that young girls are rarely named Draupadi.

The most significant question is: why has this exceptional violence taken place during an election boycott? The simple answer is that new generation of Kashmiri youth, born and brought up in the conflict of the nineties of the last century are in no mood to compromise.

The symbols that I am talking about are now quite explicit. The recurrent ones are Shiva and Parvati. Even the Prime Minister countenances them in public ceremonies or gatherings. The problem with myths is that they are myths. To interface them with historical truths is problematic.
