    Politics


    In an absolutely retrograde move, the Jammu & Kashmir assembly passed a bill which meant that women of J & K who married outside the state would lose their Permanent Resident status. This reversed an earlier J & K High Court judgement. There had been an executive order, passed in 1927, which said the same thing but the granddaughter of the former Chief Minister GM Bakshi had successfully contested the order after she lost her PR status after marrying the son of a former Punjab Governor. I suppose India does end up losing a lot of face, especially when internationally the consensus is on democratizing and modernizing a lot of Muslim countries.
    While replying to a question on whether there would be seat sharing between the BJP, the Shiv Sena and the Swatantra Bharat Party, Pramod Mahajan said that 'what dowry has to be given, leave it to me to decide'. In this day and age when there should be a wholehearted attempt from all sections of society to get rid of the practice of dowry, Mr. Mahajan's remark comes across as crass, insensitive and Philstine. He has to offer an apology.
    Ajit Duara offers a tongue in cheek comment on the recent mass acquisitions of filmstars, tv artistes and cricketers by various parties.
