Dear Readers,

I hope the Monsoon is bringing you some help from the summer heat. Please be careful with any vacation plans anywhere in the country as it is heavily raining and causing serious floods. You can use the help of Google Weather and be alert in case you want to go somewhere for official work. Just be alert and safe.

Something inhuman happened in the valley. Two young innocent boys Abhijit Nath and Nilutpal Das were brutally killed by an outraged mob in Panjuri Kachari village, 16 km from Dokmoka town, Karbi Anglong District, Assam. The reason behind the outraged killing was the rumour of the two boys being Child-lifters or ‘Faagadou’ as the Karbi People call it. Unfortunately, this heinous incident only shook the NE India but not entire India. Nation dailies and so-called National Media was busy reporting the abandoned Ex-CM Akhilesh Bungalow and Mumbai Floods which is obvious and a seasonal event. Probably, the loss of human life is the least important than the news of Mumbai and Akhilesh. Or maybe, the incident happened so far away from national capital Delhi, that the national media thought, news of Northeast India is not that delicious to cover and telecast. Personally, I don’t care, because these so-called national media have never cared to cover NE India or tried to upheld its problem to the nation’s attention.
