It has been over five hundred years that the people of Kashmir have had to suffer. They have suffered misrule in many forms and the worst was during the tenure of Aurangzeb who had ordered his vassals to declare a war of terror against Kashmiri Pandits, finally forcing them to appeal to the Sikhs for help.
To remind his detractors that he has not forgotten the election promises he made, Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off the issue of international cooperation in unearthing black money from India stashed abroad in Australia during the G-20 summit which included the member nations of BRICS and the UK and the USA.
Raja Amarnath Kaul has held the title of the 'Kite Flying Champion of India' on several occasions. It was in Lucknow in 1992 that he bagged the award for the first time. Kaul who comes from an illustrious family of Pandits of the state is from the only family of Kashmiri Pandits who were made Taluqadars of Awadh.
