Jammu and Kashmir has remained in limelight of the world primarily because of its conjoining of two Asian giants India and China and also because of lying at the root of the chronic ailment that India and Pakistan carry since independence.

The strategic location of the state makes it one of the most incandescent flashpoint of the world but at the same time the internal dynamics of the state offer an interesting narrative which has a direct bearing on the relationship of the state vis-à-vis the Government of India. This is evident from the current study that the long standing apparent regional variations and the divergence among the regions of Kashmir, Jammu and Ladakh are not only geographical in content rather have ethno-cultural elements in operation too. Insurgency in the region of Kashmir has also influenced the regions of Ladakh and Jammu. As regards the development of the sense of marginalization among Ladakhis vis-a-vis Kashmir and Jammu it has been observed that since culture, language, religion and ethnicity play a significant role in the formmu and represents the broader Ladakhi opinionation of group personality they tend to develop the sense of separate regional identity among Ladakhis too. Since Ladakh is culturally a homogeneous region strengthened by the reality that it also represents a distinct racial stock, it has developed an individuality which exercises a considerable influence over the intra-state dynamics.

The present book brings into fore that the region of Ladakh has suffered on several accounts when compared to Kashmir and Jam that pleads for a separate Union Territory status or statehood for the region of Ladakh. Thus it will be in great national interest that the central and state governments should look into the disparity and open more avenues of development in every field in the region.
