Daily Diary (DD) - Day 355 of 2018


Putting the pieces of the jigsaw together, one by one in Muzaffarabad.

While we're here, there is some daily public activity on 'Darya Bachao' (Save Our Rivers) and we're unable to participate in any way. While analysing it from a distance, it appears that there has been some evolution in practice, as far as public activism is concerned.

The tussle between private (individual) and public interest remains. However, consistency - in struggle - and transparency in the digital age could and should minimise the traditional ascendency of private interest. Short term needs of activists will eventually be subordinate to longer term public interest.

Meanwhile, here's a photo taken outside K. H. Khursheed Sports Ground next to the main campus of the University of AJK, on the occasion of making a video for the Save Sharda Committee across the LOC:

Whilst we continue public engagement in Muzaffarabad, we've written a few letters to further engage the AJK government and its institutions on Sharda in particular and other matters of public interest in general:

Letter 1 - To PM AJK:

While we're here in Muzaffarabad, a couple of our citizens are having an intelligent discussion in Pakistan's capital Islamabad, about 140 kilometres away:
