Why Kargil bother more about Global Issues?

Kargil 1

Few youth, may be due to lack of logical observations, question that: Why Kargil bother more about Middle East or international issues rather than grassroots issues in Kargil? Since the last protest, held against Netanyahu’s India visit, covered by many national and international media, even outsiders have also raised the same question. Thus the outcry has also multiplied.

So I think this need a discourse. So, let’s theorize the issue. Let me explain!

According to social scientists a dispute arouse at three levels. (1) For basic daily needs, security, and survival; (2) for respect, self esteem and luxury etc; (3) for cultural superiority, religious freedom etc. If we prioritize the issues, the first is the most important, second is less important and third is the least important. The struggle against corruption, nepotism, education and political status are not in par with struggle for daily basic needs, security and survival. The issues in Middle East, for which Kargil raise voice are grave concerns of basic need and security of life. However, issues in Kargil are not worse like that. When the basic survival issues fulfills, then the turn comes for second and the third one. So there is no comparison between the issues in Kargil and issues in Middle East.

Secondly, at the international level, countries that play a major role and take concerns on humanitarian ground about various issues at the regional and the global level, have the status of regional, great or super power. They subsequently enjoy a major say in international organizations. E.g. India, with the second largest population in the world, plays a major role in South Asia, is on the edge to get permanent membership in the United Nations Security Council. Because, India contribute troops, experts opinion, logistic support and humanitarian aid for various peacekeeping missions by UN. Thus it proves that, speaking for other countries on humanitarian ground is considered to be a noble job.

Thirdly, at the national level, the motto of Central Government led, National Service Scheme (NSS) is “Not Me But You”. The national level service scheme initiated by Mahatma Gandhi is a group of young responsible volunteers whose priority is mankind rather than him/her self. Islam also says that the best obedience to the creator is to serve creatures. The crux is, those who serve humanity and other creatures are the best responsible citizens. The culture of might is right and self survival is common in both animal and human. The difference is human acts on humanitarian ground.

Yes, Kargil take concern about global issues because they want India to become a permanent member of the UNSC. They concern because they hate crime; and they have zero crimes rate in their own district. They protest because they want to propagate justice across the globe. In Quranic terms they feel the responsibility of the “leaders’ for mankind”.

But it doesn’t mean that they totally neglect their own part. The youth in Kargil had recently taken to street against corruption, nepotism and other issues. The MLA Kargil had made a major uproar in the state Assembly. The religious organizations conduct free medical camps and distribute free clothes among needy. They had raised their voice on state and national issues like article 370, 35 A, triple talaq, demand for Union Territory, Greater Ladakh demand and many others. All these are within Kargil and Kargili voice for both “me” (Kargil) and “you” (non-Kargil). It is the media who doesn’t cover these stories because they had little chance to get TRP. But when Kargil raised voice against Israel the Zionist led imperialist media highlights it with an intention to divert the voice of the mass.

Lastly, but most importantly, the “world is flat”, the “globe is shrinking”, and in an era of communication, connectivity, global governance and cooperation, no issue is yours’ and ours’. A minor shift in policy in west affects the east and a minor conflict in the east jeopardizes the west. In such an era of soft war, only guns loaded with information will be the triumphant. People present in the battle field will be the leaders. Thus the slogans of “self-help”, “ego-centric” and “ethno-centric” are enemies’ policy to keep you on the bay. So don’t get confined in the enemies trap.

In a nutshell I would argue that, this (statement) is a thought, your thought is based on your knowledge, and your knowledge is based on your source. So check your source, it may be under hegemony!

Govt. Middle School students in Kargil develops Artificial Glacier

26230425_1504076809642065_6852280758004400246_n

Government Middle School students in Kargil have developed an Artificial Glacier in Karith village with the help of the teaching staff and the villagers. Here is a short discription about the glacier by a teaching staff.

Respected everyone, we the staff members of Government Middle School Karith want to give a short description about the artificial Glacier that we (have) prepared at Karith.

The thought was discussed in 2016 by the staff members in which the involment of the students was also ensured with the aim to develop the creative approach of the students. Even though the first attempt was not a success but good enough to keep the concept alive.

So, in 2017 we decided to do it again and the result is in front of you all.
It took more than a week to choose a suitable location and to discuss about other important details and finally we built the structure successfully by 28th of November 2017 at the selected location.

The glacier was under observation by the staff as well as students before the vocation but after the vacations as it was not possible to go to the village everyday we decided that the native staff and students will visit the glacier weekly and inform us about the status.

The site was visited by other staff members too and also decided to go again to evaluate if there is any shortcoming and futher modification needed. Thus the staff members and the students worked really hard to make this a successful one.

We hope that everyone will appreciate and support us.

Thank You
Regards
Staff Members of Government Middle School Karith (Working under Pilot Project)

Happy New Year Kargil

Since last few days WhatsApp and messenger both have been flooded with best wishes for the New Year. The world also has embraced the New Year with hopes and new heights to achieve. But, undoubtedly, for many the elated feelings are veil to cover the failures of the last year.

How one can forget unachieved dreams with the change of year, months and days. Because, every rational person knows, this process of change in time has less to change in life. But as believers we are taught to remain hopeful always. So we have to turn the New Year in a day to plan new strategies and tactics.

Last year we went through many grave problems of corruption, nepotism, erosion of values, fear of cultural assimilation, bribery, disintegration. After all we ended the year with naming and accusing some organizations, politicians and office bearers for the sociopolitical, ethical and moral degradation in the society. Furthermore, last year was very regrettable because we all failed to provide a way out from these grave problems and remained indulged in naming and framing each other.

Everyone, especially those extending shoulders to fight against the problems in the society must understand that, the blaming and accusing game leads to Takfiriat. Those who were accusing both Muawiya and Ali a.s. gave birth to the Khawarij who leads to extremism. Similarly those who were accusing the failures of Ottoman Empire gave birth to Wahhabism. Thus proves that blaming game of the statuesque without an alternative plan leads to takfirism.

So, Put on your thinking caps and let’s think for a plan to find a way out. Let’s remember this New Year eve to pledge for the coming year.

Ahan, no haste please!

Take this whole first month to seek a workable plan to implement in the next 11 months. And, let’s pledge to fight back rationally and ethically with a strong feasible plan.

Happy New Year to all…
