How symbols persist: The curious case of the Hyderabad funds - TCA Raghavan, Telegraph India
The British High Court judgment on the Hyderabad funds case on October 2 may well mark the closure of a seven-decade-long litigation, although Pakistan can still appeal to the Supreme Court. The proximate reason for the long legal proceedings was obvious enough — an India-Pakistan tangle over money.
The great wall of nature - RK Pachauri, Pioneer
Former Prime Minister of India IK Gujral was one of the most scholarly and well-read leaders we have had.

Can Hindi unite India? - Anuradha Raman, Hindu
Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s statement last week that Hindi can unite the country once again evoked sharp disapproval from political parties, especially in south India. Mr. Shah later clarified that he meant Hindi as a second language.
Pakistan’s hypocrisy - Deepak Sinha, Pioneer
It’s almost been two months since Prime Minister Narendra Modi upset the Pakistani applecart by amending Article 370 of the Constitution and dividing the erstwhile State of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K) into two Union Territories.
Focus on making history - VV Sundar, Pioneer
There is a performance zone in which we all thrive.

For the sake of democracy - JS Rajput, Pioneer
In a democracy, citizens enjoy the privilege of casting their vote to elect representatives. In India, we elect leaders right from the panchayat level to the Parliament. The right to vote is prized and all of us are taught about it in our schools and universities.
A time for new leaders - Ram Madhav, Indian Express
For the separatists in Kashmir, the winter chill has set in early. And it is likely to be a long haul.
