Epilogue, a monthly magazine that compiles the voices of columnists, researchers, activists and the common man from the SAARC region on a variety of subjects including policy and governance matters, legal and social issues.
The journey of Epilogue began 11 years ago, when a team of like minded people set out on an ambitious task of publishing a monthly magazine that would not only highlight current issues but also imbibe in the stories the rich history and struggle of the people in the region that is on the cusp of a revolutionary wave.
Today, Epilogue has hundreds of contributors and a readership that runs into tens of thousands. Original content from scholars, experts and journalists with a keen eye on Jammu and Kashmir, keep the pages alive every month with leading senior editors ensuring that the magazine presents a balanced view to readers.
Epilogue is backed by a network of journalists, media-practitioners, academicians, experts, researchers and scholars, who belong to different parts of Jammu and Kashmir from both sides of the Line of Control.
A number of foreign institutes, think tanks and universities have already collaborated with Epilogue in getting their works on Jammu and Kashmir published. Notable among them are Centre for Foreign Relations (US), United States Institute of Peace USIP (US), University of Urbana Champaign (Illinois, US), Conciliation Resources (London, UK).
The feedback we receive, month after month, points to the fact that readers — ranging from scholars to journalists and strategic experts to decision makers — refer to Epilogue as a key document for objective understanding on Jammu and Kashmir.
Notwithstanding the literal meaning of ‘Epilogue’ as a word, we want to embark on a novel road towards facilitating an honourable environment for all to live.
To commemorate the decade of narrowing the divide of information within the region, we are organizing a leadership conclave“BRIDGING DIVIDES” on Sunday, January 14, 2018.
‘Bridging Divides’, as the name suggests, is a platform for bringing together the National and State government and thought leaders to discuss some burning issues that the region faces.
Over 150 attendees comprising political leaders of all parties, prominent citizens, senior government officials, senior police officers along with industrialists, startups, academicians, and research scholars are expected to participate and share their experiences.
Decades of turmoil and treachery, delivered at hands of all stakeholders, has besieged the belief of a peaceful populace. Standing the test of times over many centuries, the citizens have often been left in disgust and desperation.
The solitary aim of Epilogue’s congregation, if it can be called one, is to seek to redress the hurt and malice the society has undergone and to see rejuvenation of all humans who dwell on this land in a peaceful and honourable manner.
Details about the event are as follows:
