Directions (Q. 11-20): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below It. Certain words are given in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

The face of the average young Kashmiri that you see on television is an angry one. But what is life really like for a persons who has grown up during a period when the gun has ruled and curfew has been a daily routine? Under its Violence Mitigation and Amelioration Project, Oxfam (India) Trust recently produced a rather unusual report that documents the opinions of nearly 200 young Kashmiris. The primary research was conducted by a group of young Kashmiris familiar with the situation in the State.

Although the report, “The impact of violence on the student community in Kashmir”, does not claim to be either empirical or statistically significant, what- it does convey ,through its qualitative material is the mood of the college-going person in Kashmir. Reports such as this are often dismissed because they lack academic rigour and also openly state their political bias.

Yet, it is inconceivable that a group of young Kashmiris could produce a report without articulating their views on the political situation in their State. In this report, that view is stated upfront; the reader can agree or disagree but the substance lies in the narratives and the information on what the young people think and what they experience.

In a city such as Mumbai, for instance, college students are busy at this time of the year trying for admission, shopping around for books, cloths and music, going to movies, restaurants or just hanging around the roadside tea stalls Such a scene would be unheard of in Kashmir, although in last six months things could have changed.

The report records how the 13 long years, when the state was convulsed in violent conflict , took their toll on the life and academics performance of thousands of students. A life mahogany of colleges could not function normally. Curfew, ‘bandhs’ and continuous violence meant that students did not know from one day to the next whether they would get to college. Degrees were awarded even though students had not attended college. Also, many educational institutions were burnt down at the height of the troubles. Others where occupied by security forces and thus could not be used.

Even in the colleges that continued to function. there was little by way of extra-curricular activities. And student unions were not permitted. Thus, what was associated with “normal” college and university life in India wad totally absent in Kashmir over these last 13 years.

  4. Transparent mechanism applied while preparing the report
  5. None of these
