Kashmir’s insurgency is 20 years old this month.
Twenty years apart, the streets of Srinagar witnessed identical images: thousands of furious youth, anti-India slogans, stones, bullets ands blood. To many, nothing has changed in the valley of rebellion.
But beneath the veneer of the Valley’s constant angst, there is change and churning, so sweeping that it seems unrecognizable from even a few years ago.

We also invite your comments on the past 20 years, and the next 20 -- what is it that you think should be done in Kashmir, not just to resolve the dispute but even smaller, more doable measures?
