Jaane Kahaan hai
Getting maps from the stationery store is a frequent exercise among students in Delhi. At least, it was when I was kid.
My favorite was a map which had the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal in cool blue, land boundaries in shades of grey and this particular one had a smooth finish. No print bloopers for me.In fact, I just saw a scrappy , cheaper version a few minutes back.
I long to find that haughty, police-inspector’s-hat, we called the state of Jammu & Kashmir, high in the air. Our country is probably to get its boundaries altered without its permission, without being overthrown. All while I was getting ready for a lifetime of steady monthly income.
