A high protein-packed breakfast satisfied our appetite all day long. We sipped special tea at Tamulpur. After three hours of driving, we saw amazing views of tea garden to soothe our eyes. The infamous Darangamela is now a place of business hub for eastern Bhutan.  The Kurichhu Hydropower Plant built across the Kurichhu River that flows into the river Manah and Beki. A decorative gate caught our attention. The Royal Bhutan Police had politely asked to report for immigration. With utmost respect and generosity, the officer asked a few questions of our arrival. We earned the bragging rights to cross an international border for being Indian. The sign of Indo-Bhutan treaty of friendship made us feel at ease.

“A nation is advanced in proportion to education and intelligence spread among the masses.”
Swami Vivekananda had long ago mentioned of the very importance of education and the impact it has on the growth of a nation in the most simplest of terms.

Education is not just a practice of going to school; it is a commitment to transform into a proper human being from just any ordinary person. It is not just about good grades, but also about good morals. It is not just about learning tables, but also about having profound knowledge of manners and etiquettes.


 A world that thrives on pace and selfish motives, education is what keeps the soul alive. Education not only teaches us words like “thank you” and “sorry”, but also widens our vision and understanding on gratefulness and guilt. It is not just a medium to know where the Moon is, but also about knowing, analyzing and planning on how to reach it. To say the least, education is not just a profession-building tool, it is a life-building mechanism.

We are happy to know that R.N. Ravi, Interlocutor for the Naga Peace Process and now Governor of Nagaland, have been promoted twice while serving as the Interlocutor. The NSCN-IM should also be grateful that the Framework Agreement was signed during this period.

How the Current Indo-Naga Talks Began:  Though the NSCN faced a huge setback in the 80s, twelve years after its formation, through the initiative of the organization, Nagalim was admitted in the UNPO (Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organisation) on 23 January, 1993. This was widely published in the international media. And Nagalim was featured in the Times Magazine the same  year. (Some of the former members of the UNPO such as Armenia, East Timor, Estonia, Latvia, Georgia and Palau, have gained full independence and joined the United Nations.)
