Presently my postdoctoral project is a comparison of two India-Pakistan borders - the conflict prone and de facto Line of Control that divides Indian and Pakistan administered Kashmir; and the stable and permanent Rajasthan-Sindh border.
My doctoral research was aimed at going beyond the standard political dimensions of the Kashmir conflict and bringing into the fold the sociological and human aspects. I looked at the socio-political dynamics among Hindus in Jammu and Kashmir and their relation to the dominant Jammu politics.
