want peace in Pakistanso as not to cede room to those who dont The killing of five jawans in Poonch last week is yet another instance of the death by a thousand cuts bleeding of India that has long been a key strategic doctrine of Pakistan Or at least of the deep state that exerts enormous influence behind the scenes in that countryirrespective of whatever constitutes the publicly visible government of the day The frustration and anger that we feel in India at repeated betrayalsboth big and smallof countless promises of peace from across the Line of Control isof courseunderstandable From Atal Bihari Vajpayees bus diplomacy being followed by Kargilto Pervez Musharrafs assurance of no longer allowing Pakistani territory to be used for terrorism being followed by 26/11the pattern has remained the same Neverthelessthe recent past had seen a decline in cross border infiltration and attacksattributed by many to Pakistans increasing preoccupation with its own crumbling internal security Widely regarded as the global epicentre of jihadist terror outfitsPakistans past has finally caught up with itand the chickens have been coming home to roost in ever-larger numbers Near civil war conditions in parts of Pakistan have forced many politicianscivil society activistsand even sections of their armed forcesto acknowledge what the world has been telling them for years that their existential threat is not Indiabut their own fraying internal compact It is in this context that there have been renewed efforts at rapprochementboth by official engagement on issues like trade as well as by track two dialogues The message coming out of Islamabadfor at least a couple of yearscertainly post Abbottabad but even beforehas been that it sees the writing on the wall and wants normalisation of relations with India And even more importantlythat the new initiatives in this regard had the blessings of the armys General Headquarters But it is on this last point that Indias defence and foreign policy experts have not been convinced Their overwhelming consensus has been that while Pakistans army may have indeed given its nod for de-escalation of tensions with Indiafor now it must be treated as only a tactical accommodation by itrather than a fundamental reorientation of its India strategy They havethereforeadvocated a cautiousincremental approach In the meantimePakistan has achieved a historic milestone: a transition from one civilian government to another via elections This is no small matterbut may not be sufficiently appreciated in Indiafor it is the norm to which we are accustomed Equally significantlythe new prime ministerNawaz Sharifhas the credentials of having partnered Vajpayee in pioneering the modern era of Indo-Pak peacemaking efforts There are those who take that with a pinch of saltparticularly due to General Musharrafs allegation that Sharif was in the know on Kargil But even they would acknowledge that irrespective of whether Sharif okayed Kargil or notMusharraf has always been its champion; and it was the former who paid a price for that misadventurenot the latter Be that as it maySharif has been making all the right noises about Indiaboth before and after his election Nowwith a rise in cross border attacks againthere is a corresponding and justifiable rise of outrage in Indiawith loud demands that talks with Pakistan be suspended The Indian government has been wrong footed in Parliament and is groping for answers Despite some commentators cool-headed advice that dialogue with Pakistan should continuerealpolitik will dictate a slowdown and perhaps even a haltat least for some time The single biggest factor in Indias choices seems to be that most of us see Pakistan as cohesive in its antipathy towards India Most Indians simply dont know enough about the deep schisms within Pakistani society or about their civilian governments tenuous authority And even among those who doa common attitude is that its their problem Some even maintain that if we must choose between dealing with disparate stakeholdersit should be with the army Therein lies the rub The raison detre of the army enjoying an astoundingly privileged position in Pakistan includingfor instancecontrolling many large enterprises listed on the Karachi stock exchange has been the premise that India is continually plotting its destruction A fundamental change in that narrative would perforce open a Pandoras box from the Pakistan armys point of view Thuswhile it is clear that today the army has the ultimate authority to sanction and maintain détente along the LoCit can hardly be in its interest to actually press for permanent peace In line with the historical experience of true democracies almost never going to war with each otherour best hope of achieving a sustainable peace with Pakistan lies in democracy finally establishing permanent roots there And that means engaging with their legitimately elected civilian government Perhaps not immediatelyparticularly in the aftermath of yet another outragebut soon Whether the Poonch attack was directly conducted by army regularsor by non state actors in army fatiguesis immaterial The latter would not be feasible if their training camps across the LoC were to be shut down Perhaps this was a nudge from Pakistans deep state to its civilian government to make them keep seeking its blessings Or perhaps it bodes something more ominous: a correction of the tacticalnot strategic de-escalation with Indianow that the US is significantly winding down its presence in Afghanistan In any caseit is no simple coincidence that this provocation comes yet again when a civilian leader has held out an olive branch It is in Indias long-term interest that democratically elected governments in Pakistan gradually gain ascendance over the army Treating that as their internal affair is not in our national interest Remarkably for a country so dividedthere is near unanimity across Pakistans political spectrum for normalising relations with India That this view might not be shared deeply by other Pakistani players should help us understand who our friends and enemies really are Not engaging with those who feel the need for peace is to cede ground to those who dont The writer is a BJD MP in Lok Sabha [email protected] For all the latest Opinion

diabetes have a six-fold risk of heart attack new research has warned adding that young women who had suffered a heart attack were also more likely to be smokers The study assessed the effect of risk factors on heart attack (Myocardial Infarction or MI) incidence in 7386 young women and also differences related to age The average age among young MI patients in the study was 42 years (range 21-45 years) Multivariate analysis showed that four out of five classic risk factors were independent predictors of MI in young women “The strongest was Diabetes which increased MI risk by six-fold Arterial Hypertension increased risk by four times while Hypercholesterolemia tripled risk and current smoking increased risk by 16 times” said researchers from Institute of Cardiology in Warsaw Poland Share This Article Related Article However there was no statistical significance for obesity expressed by Body Mass Index (BMI) “The lack of a correlation with obesity could be because of the overwhelming influence of Diabetes in this population We also found that the risk of MI in young women increased with the number of coexisting factors” said professor Hanna Szwed Head of the Coronary Artery Disease at the Institute of Cardiology Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) affect mainly the elderly but for many years an increase in incidence has been observed in young people as well regardless of gender The World Health Organisation estimates that CVDs cause more than 52 percent of all deaths in women and the number continues to rise “Up to one percent of all heart attacks are in young women” Szwed added “We found that the risk factor profile in young women with MI was similar to the older population apart from the greater occurrence of tobacco smoking in young women” Szwed noted The finding correlates with other research which shows that smoking is a growing problem in young women This is clearly an area where prevention efforts are needed the authors concluded The findings were
