When the human civilization was comparatively young nearly 2722 years ago with political turbulence sweeping Levant which then formed the Eastern Mediterranean of Western Asia, the mighty Assyrian Empire exiled the 10 Jewish tribes of Israel.

One among them was Bnei Menashe, one of the 10 tribes!

We get glimpses of this expulsion in the Hebrew Bible and other historical references including that of Flavius Josephus, the 1st century Jewish scholar who fought against the Roman Empire but ultimately took shelter in Rome to compile the history of Israelites.

They accessed to the then inaccessible Manipur and Mizoram braving heat, stand storms, cold, mountains, jungles, rivers and seas risking their very lives, Bnei Mesashe people settled down there.

Republic Day is the special day for the people of India which came into existence much later after the struggle withholding the emotions, love and sacrifices made by our ancestors & freedom fighters. We are blessed to celebrate it with valor and elaborate it our generations to come. It honours the day on which the Constitution of India came into effect on 26 January 1950 replacing the Government of India Act (1935) as the governing document of India and thus, turning the nation into a newly formed republic.

It has been celebrated since years showcasing the gallantry of India in the national capital, New Delhi, at the Rajpath before the President of India. On this day, ceremonious parades takes place at the Rajpath, which are performed as a tribute to India; its unity in diversity and rich cultural heritage.

Mighty Teesta River, flowing through the Northeast India and holding key to the region’s prosperity through generation of power and other multipurpose projects, now has become the focal point of forthcoming Indo-Bangladesh talks.

The reason is long standing dispute between India and Bangladesh over sharing of its water. Dhaka wants lion’s share of water while Delhi is justifiably claiming more since the river originates in Sikkim. Dispute, as a result, continues.

Bangladesh also depends much on Teesta River as it also flows through this country like many other rivers which, though originated in India, terminates there. The stretch of Teesta River is about 121KM on which 21 million Bangladeshis depend. But India’s dependence on Teesta River is much more as it is the lifeline of Sikkim and North Bengal.

The biggest paper mill under Hindustan Paper Corporation Ltd in Assam’s Morigaon district has not seen any sign of rejuvenation even 6 years after Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s revival promise.
 
New Delhi assured a lot to the mill employees from time to time but all these later became a nightmare to them as government is found inching towards its hidden strategy of handing the mill over to some private parties. The mill’s shutter remains closed for the couple of years. Three mill employees committed suicide so far as they are deprived from the money they deserve from the government.
