The Map is not the Territory

So goes a famous saying. Basically it means that the diagrammatic representation of an area does not constitute the area itself.

Some food for thought for Kashmir fanatics on both sides of the Indo-Pak border.

POM=Piece of Mind

POM to Indians: However hoarse you scream, you are not going to get back PoK. Infact, it is not worth the effort. Simply drawing maps which represent the whole of Kashmir as Indian is not going to serve any purpose.PoK is gone forever. Instead concentrate on the remaining area and bring in law and order.

POM to Pakistanis: Someone rightly said that Indians and pakistanis are very much alike. Extending the logic, you guys can do what we can do, and cannot do what we cannot do. Just as India cannot throw you out of PoK, get rid of all delusions regarding removing India from J&K.

POM to both: Is it worth fighting over kashmiris who owe allegiance to both the parties, but claim independence just to create a temporary viel until the time they take the final opportunist decision?
