The word tomorrow always triggers one's imagination because nobody has seen tomorrow. It can only cognitively be touched and felt. It is analogous to life after death which nobody has seen. Consequently since time immemorial it has led to spinning out dreams and visions of tomorrow, of future of the world with the intensity and swiftness of domino effect in speculations of various possibilities by writers, poets, social reformers, philosophers, sages and saints. It is generally interpreted connotatively very seldom denotatively.
The world of tomorrow is infinitely large and allows to mushroom in its womb deep sea of events and happenings, visions and hopes which provide the necessary impetus for the present to survive and assiduously work for a happy future. It is in fact an intangible shadow of time.Add a comment Read more: Looking Through Tomorrow: Ifs and Buts
There was a time, say till the 70s when the countenance of Guwahati was almost like that of a somnolent, nondescript town. But in the past forty years, the city has undergone a sea-change. Both in terms of length and breadth, it has stretched out considerably, thanks to the ever-growing city population and large-scale exodus of people from various parts of Assam and the North-Eastern states. This migration of people from the rest of the region is triggered by their requirements for higher studies, engineering, or medical courses, better employment opportunities or even for improved health-care system easily available in the city.Add a comment Read more: Civic Woes of Guwahati
Mizoram located in the Northeast part of India is known for its highly literate agrarian economy. The term Mizoram is derived from two Mizo words-Mizo and ram. 'Mizo' is the name used to call the native inhabitants and 'Ram' means 'land'. Mizoram is a land of rolling hills, valleys, rivers and lakes. As many as 21 major hill ranges or peaks of different heights run through the length and breadth of the state, with plains scattered here and there. About 76% of the state is covered by forests, 8% is fallows land, 3% is barren and considered uncultivable area, while cultivable and sown area constitutes the rest. Slash-and-burn or jhum cultivation, though discouraged, remains in practice in Mizoram and affects its topography. The State of Forest Report 2017 states that Mizoram has the highest forest cover as a percentage of its geographical area of any Indian state, being 86.27% forest.Add a comment Read more: Massive Fire Ensue Mizoram Land
