SRINAGAR: Entrepreneurship is no more a business choice becoming a growing trend in Kashmir. The young generation of Kashmir are more into this trend. Though start up is a good platform to nurture ones talents and capabilities and some of the entrepreneurs have shown tremendous growth in this field. The ongoing trend of the Cafe’s that is growing rapidly in the valley especially Srinagar where a cafe can be seen at almost every corner.  It is good that the youth are investing their time in something productive but at the same time it should not be only to follow the crowd and that's exactly what is happening nowadays.   

Entrepreneur choices seems to be confined to opening up a cafe or a restaurant while having many different options that could be worked on.  Talking about the cafes and restaurants, the focus is more on the theme and the interior designing of the place rather than the quality of food.  Those places are more of the artistic value than taste. It is important to maintain the place and to make it look attractive but the main priority should be the food and this is where almost every cafe and restaurant are lagging behind.  

Maybe the people visit these cafes and restaurants for the themes they are based on but at the end it is the good food that will attract customers and make them visit the place again and again. Though some places are quite fine but still lack the essence of a w call a good Cafe or restaurant. Mainly because of the compromise that is being made on the quality and taste of food available at these places.   

"After visiting a cafe ,I personally realized  that these places  are more pleasing to the camera, food comes after that which somewhere tastes good and somewhere okay okay, " said Shaista, a boutique owner.   Evidently, social media plays a significant role in publicizing and promoting all these cafes and restaurants even most of the cafe's gain customers through social media only where the pictures are posted, tags used especially on Instagram adds to the publicity of the places.  

"Recently I've been to some of the cafe's here and one thing I noticed is that these cafe's are involved in building a status on social media through their interiors and are less bothered about the Main part of the place which is food, it’s a disappointment ," said zulaikha mir, a fine art student.  However, young entrepreneurs have excelled with their entrepreneurial brains and have been successful enough with their start-ups, let’s hope food Quality gets better from good.

JAMMU: Prof. Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party has dashed an urgent letter to Shri Satya Pal Malik, Governor of J&K urging him to convene an urgent meeting of the representatives of all recognized political parties on the issue what needs to be done to restore peace and deliver justice to the people of all three regions of the state namely, Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu Pradesh. Prof.Bhim Singh urged the Governor that, “I have been associated with boiling situation in J&K since 1953 when I was a student of Class-VI in Ramnagar, District Udhampur. I have faced expulsions from the schools, from the colleges and even from the Assembly. What I have gathered during my over 50 years struggle in J&K for seeking justice, equity and rule of law that has been even printed in some of my books. 

Your Excellency has taken up very difficult job but it is not impossible to find a solution for the return of peace in J&K. Under the circumstances when there is Governor Rule in the state, Your Excellency has a great opportunity to invoke your goodwill and experience to involve the people from all the three regions of the state namely, Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu state. This is an opportunity to involve people of all walks of life from the three regions to generate an Ocean of goodwill and peace. Your Excellency, this is the time that all the regions with different schools of thought need to be involved in the dialogue/discussion. 

I feel that this is the time that Your Excellency may convene a close door meeting (without press or media) with representatives of different schools of thought say, representatives of all recognised political parties in the state, all ex-MLAs who may belong to any group even to the Hurriyat Conference. Your Excellency may call 4/5 well known social activists, may they be from any religious group. This conference should be convened at any place in Kashmir or Jammu province with an agenda, “What needs to be done to ensure confidence of the people and bring an end to all forms of violence in the state.” The people of J&K have faced more difficult situation than they are facing today. People of the state deserve to be involved in a dialogue/discussion so that peace returns and justice delivered to all. No press/media should be allowed to sit in such a conference and none shall be permitted to report the progress except the chair at its pleasure.

Your Excellency, I strongly feel that you should personally convene a meeting with the political representatives including the angry leadership and seek their opinion on what needs to be done. This is an opportunity which I am sure you are not going to miss. Opinion of the chosen bureaucrats or political persons on what needs to be done will not be sufficed. You need opinion from other side of the wall and from those who are committed to peace and harmony. I feel that you should  call a meeting of the representatives of all recognized political parties including that of Hurriyat Conference with an open mind what needs to be done for the return of peace and justice to all.”

Your Excellency, Sir,

I have been associated with boiling situation in J&K since 1953 when I was a student of Class-VI in Ramnagar, District Udhampur. I have faced expulsions from the schools, from the colleges and even from the Assembly. What I have gathered during my over 50 years struggle in J&K for seeking justice, equity and rule of law that has been even printed in some of my books.

Your Excellency has taken up very difficult job but it is not impossible to find a solution for the return of peace in J&K. Under the circumstances when there is Governor Rule in the state, Your Excellency has a great opportunity to invoke your goodwill and experience to involve the people from all the three regions of the state namely, Ladakh, Kashmir and Jammu state. This is an opportunity to involve people of all walks of life from the three regions to generate an Ocean of goodwill and peace. Your Excellency, this is the time that all the regions with different schools of thought need to be involved in the dialogue/discussion.

I feel that this is the time that Your Excellency may convene a close door meeting (without press or media) with representatives of different schools of thought say, representatives of all recognized political parties in the state, all ex-MLAs who may belong to any group even to the Hurriyat Conference. Your Excellency may call 4/5 well known social activists, may they be from any religious group. This conference should be convened at any place in Kashmir or Jammu province with an agenda, “What needs to be done to ensure confidence of the people and bring an end to all forms of violence in the state.” The people of J&K have faced more difficult situation than they are facing today. People of the state deserve to be involved in a dialogue/discussion so that peace returns and justice delivered to all. No press/media should be allowed to sit in such a conference and none shall be permitted to report the progress except the chair at its pleasure.

Your Excellency, I strongly feel that you should personally convene a meeting with the political representatives including the angry leadership and seek their opinion on what needs to be done. This is an opportunity which I am sure you are not going to miss. Opinion of the chosen bureaucrats or political persons on what needs to be done will not be sufficed. You need opinion from other side of the wall and from those who are committed to peace and harmony. I feel that you should  call a meeting of the representatives of all recognized political parties including that of Hurriyat Conference with an open mind what needs to be done for the return of peace and justice to all.
