Dear Subba,
The author in question here is the editor of Greater Kashmir. You 
can reach him at editor at greaterkashmir.com...I believe he would

"unbiased".But Greater Kashmir has indeed itself been silent about 
atrocities against ethnic and religious minorities in J&K by the 
militants. I couldn't also agree more with you about the patterns 
of rights violations from 'Burma to Kashmir'.

My sole intention in making this posting was to somehow draw 
attention to the intellectual dishonesty of Vikram Chandra's 
reportage on Kashmir from his days with Newstrack in early
