That alcohol was served inside an orange (the way we see it inside pineapples), that orange drink was associated with orgies and thus became a slang code for transgressive practices.

The Horticultural Department of Kashmir has gone on the record that Kashmir's cold weather rules it out for citric fruit production. This was until one local resident decided to actually plant the orange seeds. And History was made!!

One day Kashmir will bloom orange along with red and green. Folks will experience the wonder that Jahangir did on seeing orange trees in Poonch which bore a 1000 oranges.

Kashmir is a sacred land where miracles can happen if we can let our minds be free. And the simplest way to do that is to know your literature, your sahitya. That is where the Light of Kashmir resides.

Religious particularism has defeated religious multi-culturalism in every country in the world. The hard armor of exclusivity nowhere permits the embrace of inclusivity. Now, we are all medieval Lakir Ka Fakirs. Can the true spirit of Hinduism save Hindus first and humanity next?

The idea of Karma is not limited to Hinduism. It is present in Buddhism, in Jainism & certainly in Christianity. Paul the apostle says, "whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Galations 6:7. In fact, Karma is boundaryless because it is rooted in common sense.
Below is a rather offensive (and inaccurate) characterization of the Hindu idea of karma. A reminder — Hindu nationalists do not speak for all Hindus. The right-wing hate of people like this is their own and political. Don’t confuse it with Hinduism. #Hindutva #Hinduism

Sage Vashisht is the blasphemy saint in Hinduism. It is he who advises Lord Rama that if he has to choose between Truth and the Gods, then he should side with Truth and reject the Gods. What a powerful, liberating framework Hinduism is.

Why was harmless Amreena Bhat killed? Because through her art she had found freedom and joy. The artistic gateway fills the killjoy brigade in Kashmir with fear. It should because one day it is the cultural artists who will liberate the Kashmiri people from their tormentors.

The logical next step for the @NIA_India Public prosecutor is to now file a new charge for genocide of KPs against Yasin Malik. Judge has ruled clearly that this charge was not included in his judgement and so not covered under doctrine of double jeopardy. #recogniseKPgenocide

Pakistan's march to chaos by the astute @hidhussain Its economy in shambles, it's now stuck between the debt trap on one side and the reckless Imran Khan's non-stop agitation on the other. The denouement to this drama is not going to be pretty.
Op-Ed: "What seems to have given impetus to Khan’s narrative is the growing perception that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif is calling the shots from London." dawn.com/news/1691417/imran-…

The sequencing of the two cases, first the terror financing one and then second the terror murder one reflects a brilliant strategy on the part of the State prosecutor. Or was it just implacable karma?
