Progress on Siachen

The editorial "Heartening progress on Siachen" (Oct. 6) strikes a hopeful note on the demilitarisation of the inhospitable terrain, situated at an almost uninhabitable altitude to protect which India and Pakistan have been spending crores over the years. Besides, hundreds of soldiers are put to great physical and mental hardship when they are posted to the glacier. It is time the two countries contemplated some sacrifice to end the deadlock.

For the first time in years, there is a steady progress in the peace process. One is becoming more hopeful, though cautiously. What is interesting is the process is becoming active at a time when the U.S. is otherwise occupied. It does not seem to have time to meddle in our affairs.

Dinesh Kumar,
Thiruvananthapuram
