I delineate the the glaring lack of a well-equipped infrastructure in Jammu and Kashmir in the globalized world, which makes unemployment rife and underscores the redundancy of the educated segment of the population. The counterinsurgency operations undertaken in Jammu and Kashmir by the Indian administration and military were ferocious and cruel, which alienated the disillusioned populace. Political organizations in the valley have eroded mass bases and are in a moribund state. There seems to be an unbridgeable gulf between figures of authority and the electorate, who have been deployed as pawns in the devious political game being played by Indian and Pakistani state-sponsored agencies.
