"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?'"

The Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019, passed by both houses of the Indian Parliament of India on 5 August 2019, contains provisions to reconstitute the state of Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories, one to be called Jammu and Kashmir, and the other Ladakh. The act will come into effect on 31 October 2019. It received the President's assent on 9 August 2019.
