There seems to be a renewed vigour in the discussion circles not only in and around Delhi but, the cognoscenti all over the country. For the uninitiated, the uproar is about OROP (One Rank One Pension) a very touchy subject for many.

Finding a Solution to Siachen

More than a week after the terrible avalanche at Gayari (in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir) buried nearly 110 Pakistan Army soldiers and another 70-odd civilians, there is no sign of recovery in spite of Pakistan using every possible effort and even heavy machinery to shift the thousands of tonnes of snow that has settled above the unfortunate victims of nature’s anger. Any and every human being who can visualise the tragedy cannot remain unaffected.

Demilitarisation of Siachen

Last fortnight when Gen Kayani, the Pakistan Army chief made the statement that Pakistan was ready for demilitarisation of Siachen, peaceniks from both sides enthusiastically took up the refrain, looking at it as an opportunity to settle a major bone of contention, reduce tension and improve relations between the two countries. Shortly after, Gen Kayani again talked about resolving the Siachen issue and blamed India for hardening its stand.
