 Nestling on the edge of the mighty river Brahmaputra flowing majestically along its entire stretch of land in its north with its charming rugged but greenish hills, of course, of moderate height, as those magnificent hills all around Pune, encircling almost its four sides, adding to its beauty, Guwahati was literally a small, somnolent, nondescript town till the late sixties.

            Naturally, its municipal area, no wonder, was too much small both in its width and length with Ulubari-Rehabari-Sarabbhati in the south, Chatribari-Atgaon-Kumarpara-Bharalumuk in the south-west of Guwahati, and areas in Fancy Bazar-Panbazar-Uzanbazar on the bank of the Brahmaputra to its north. To the east, its jurisdiction expanded only up to Chandmari from Gauhati club. And, interestingly enough, from Ulubari up to Ganeshguri, there was vast land measuring hundreds of thousands of bighas lying along both the flanks of the oldest G S road, being partly marshy and partly cultivable.

The right of the child, should not be abused in a society, also in the school campus and even at home. Yet there is not enough protection, even in schools, when children are burdened carrying school bags, which are heavier than the weight of the child. This is a sort of punishment, that the child has to suffer day in and day out. Coming back home, the child is also burdened by home work, and there is hardly time left for the child to spend in games that can refresh their minds. There is a saying that ‘All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy’.
