Far from the madding crowds of the world and nestled in the lap of nature, the Seven Sisters of North Eastern India currently are under the sinister shadow of cross-border smuggling carried out by the Muslim smugglers of Bangladesh and mainly ethnic Chin people of Myanmar. These dangerous smugglers are getting emboldened day by day. They not only are carrying out smuggling operations most daringly in Meghalaya, Mizoram, Assam, Manipur, Tripura, Mizoram and Nagaland but also killing local people and members of the Border Security Force and other paramilitary outfits guarding the long, porous borders that touch lawless Bangladesh and Myanmar.

The art of comedy has gone viral on television and social media. Lol (laugh out loud) is the mood. Cynically speaking, there is something seriously wrong with a society that is completely addicted to finding reasons to laugh out loud all the time. But maybe that is digging too deep and is not in the scope of this article. What is agonizingly irritating though is that comedy is being sprinkled with obscene, derogatory and cheap views of women. Seriously, how sexhungry must a society be to share such jokes and laugh about them publicly? Shameless, but we don’t even find it objectionable anymore!
