2014 Poll Facts
The state of Jammu & Kashmir has six parliamentary constituencies of which one is in sparsely populated Ladakh, two in the Jammu region and three in the Kashmir Valley. The layout of the constituencies reflects the geography and the natural divisions of the state. Traditionally, voters in Ladakh turn out in large numbers to vote while the turnout in the Valley is generally low mainly because of terrorist threats and anti-poll campaigns carried out by separatist groups. The turnout in the Jammu region varies but is usually much higher than that of the Valley. A few quick electoral facts about the state are listed Here
In truth everything and everyone
Is a shadow of the Beloved,
And our seeking is His seeking
And our words are His words...
We search for Him here and there,
while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side, we ask:
'O Beloved, where is the Beloved?'
