Once again 2019 has turned out to be a disastrous year for the beleaguered Gandhi scion as he failed to reach the three digit figure in the general elections—keeping aside these political cocktails, the dubbing of a retired Captain of Indian Army Mohammad Sannaullah as a D-Voter will continue to haunt the people of Assam in the years to come.

This is not only shameful but also a violation of human rights because the person in question is a Kargil war veteran and a soldier who has sacrificed his glorious young days for his motherland.

Sannaullah’s fate was sealed on May 23 by the Foreigner’s Tribunal (FT) of Boko and the very next day he was sent to a detention camp.

Manthan - An International Street Theatre Festival

A street play is not just meant for entertainment, a street play artist feels the stories of ignored people, sees the unheeded situations, sees the unseen time and that is what we want you to feel, only then there will be the change in the mindset of people, change in the thinking, change in the society. With this definition of change, 'Verve'- The Street Play Society Of Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies is organising their 12th edition of 'Manthan'- India's largest street play festival.

The students, teachers, district administration and Eckovation are the drivers of change to deliver quality education at the doorstep of students who otherwise cannot even afford to avail it owing to the economic and locational constraints.

Abhyudaya Dhubri, an innovative model to ensure quality education to all the students using technology.

The general view about the Indian public school system with muddled infrastructure, shortage of staff and poor performance of students, the situation in Dhubri is even more complex. Most of the students come from BPL families and geographically remote riverine island regions, where they need to make a choice between going to school or go for daily wages to support their families livelihood. Many students just take admission to become beneficiaries of Government Schemes like Mid Day Meal, school uniforms, completely free education supported by required books and notebooks.

Sikkim’s small size and the status as a landlocked state have worked against it. What happens in this quiet little place, tucked among the Himalayas in the northeastern corner hardly interests this country where the big-boys are competing to make themselves heard. Indian politics is all about the number game and Sikkim, with just one Lok Sabha MP, does not measure up to the expectations of the number-hungry politicians who control national politics. The media and all the platforms of national significance are bursting at the seams with the ear-splitting clamour of those who represent larger states or larger political parties.

In majority of cultures of Northeastern states of India, indigenous women traditionally manage trade and commerce. Manipur, the Indian border State boasts of having one of the largest networks of women’s market not only in India but in the whole of Asia.

Markets are called Keithel in Manipur and exhibit a sophisticated system of trade. The term market seems inadequate to describe what a Keithel really is and the role it plays in the local economy, culture and society. Kei translates as storehouse while thel means display, loosely translating into display of store for exchange of goods either through barter or money.

For the first time, the Northeast will play a very significant role in the ensuing Lok Sabha elections. The hurly burly affairs of Indian politics have come out from the ghetto of Hindi belt.

Modi’s dream of returning to Delhi Durbar will depend on the performance of saffron brigade in the eastern flank of India—especially Northeast. The premier two parties—BJP and Congress will be eyeing the 25 Northeastern seats. The Shah of BJP has set the benchmark for his party cadres. He wants to win at least 21 seats. Of the 123 seats, which BJP lost in 2014—the twin seats of Barak Valley—Silchar and Karimganj were also there. BJP is desperate to win Silchar. It is not pinning hopes on Karimganj because this border town is dominated by minorities.

The answer is simple: superlative degree. If you try to find out any grammatical mistake in it, you are reminded of the recent drama that was staged in Shillong concerning the Kolkata Police Commission Rajeev Kumar and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).       

The financial frauds committed by Kolkata-based Rose Valley and Sharadha were of such dimensions that they really can be termed as gems of Indian scams. Like the gems, they had been sparkled to prove that no scam really can take place without political umbrella.  

The two scams created storms in Northeast India as Tripura, Assam and finally Shillong were linked to it. The scamsters also swindled millions in across the country but mainly in West Bengal, Tripura and Assam. Interestingly, the scams would have their ripples in these states in the coming general elections in India.

“We are in the same boat brothers”, is the title song of Bhupen Hazarika, which is prophetic yet true. People of the North Eastern Region, connected by the Siliguri Chicken neck to mainland India, tucked away in the back waters of the country, yet being a sensitive strategic corner, having international borders with foreign countries including Bangladesh, Myanmar and China, need special attention for constructive development, which should be meaningful to the diverse people inhabiting the region, especially having rich resources such as oil, tea and minerals.
