Of Shutdown(s) and the Educational Dilemma in Kashmir

Of Shutdown(s) and the Educational Dilemma in Kashmir

Faculty Members or a Reserved Army: A Journey of the College Contractual lecturers in Jammu and Kashmir

Faculty Members or a Reserved Army: A Journey of the College Contractual lecturers in Jammu and Kashmir

Who am I? Am I needed anywhere? Am I a part of any system? Do I seek any quantum of respect? Do administrations consider us worth anything? Are my employers aware of my miseries or simply they act as mute spectators enjoying my agonies? These are not questions about my own self only, but all those who form part of the system that I do work for, like thousand of others who are employed as contractual lecturers in the higher education department of the state.

Ideological brainwashing or education in real sense

Sheikh Saqib Social media is abuzz today with broad concepts of schooling in the vein of both righteous and immoral education. One often circumnavigates the online world to acquire knowledge, develop critical thinking skills, and strengthen particular research in view of a failed education system with flawed tuition support.

The Particle Odyssey

The Particle Odyssey

Raja Zulkarnain The world around us seems to be made up of some minuscule fundamental particles. However, which particles are regarded as fundamental, varies with time.
