Thanks so much for tuning in. CORRECTIONS:  - Yasmin says their is one soldier for every five Kashmiris. Yasmin is incompetent at math. 18 million divided by 900,000 is 20. That means there is about one soldier for every 20 Kashmiris.  (Sumana is also incompetent.) - Sumana and Yasmin discuss Ladakh, a disputed territory in Kashmir. It's confusing, we know, but here's a link to an article that may help clear up some of the confusion! https://www.reuters.com/article/us-india-kashmir-restructuring-explainer/explainer-indias-kashmir-region-set-to-lose-autonomy-divided-idUSKBN1X9175 Recorded on Nov. 4
