Raj Chengappa, Editor-in-ChiefFROM Islamabad, the Line of Control at Chakothi in Pakistan occupied Kashmir is a breath-taking 45-minute journey by helicopter. Flying at 8,000-feet and looking down at verdant valleys and snow-tipped massifs, with fresh mountain air rushing through a porthole and the roar of rotor blades muted by bright-yellow ear muffs, I experience a fleeting sense of regret. This part of Kashmir could still have been with India had the 1948 aggression by Pakistan been anticipated and thwarted.

In Bengal, chemistry works for Mamata
Kolkata, May 1
Mamata BanerjeeWhile the English alphabet starts with ‘A’ for apple, the corresponding letter in the Bengali alphabet, for some curious reason, has for ages been taught as ‘A’ for ‘ajgar’ or the python.
