Let them feel as a part of India
India has celebrated its 60th anniversary. 60 years is enough to shape up nation & adopt the global pace of growth and tranquility. Yet, the country has failed to negotiate & unite the north-eastern states. Yet it seems trans-Bangladesh rail network connecting north-east with the rest of the country would help bringing them closer to the mainland.
The north-eastern states, better known as seven sisters together, remained distanced from the mainland due to ethnic & religious disparity. The hidden paradise lingers unexplored. Inspite of the fact that contribution of north-east when it comes to noted hockey and football players as well as providing personnel for the armed forces is by no mean less that of the many mainland states, yet for lack of direct connectivity and inability to associate, north-east has for long remained not just distance from mainland but also from each other. This in turn gave more impetus to ethnic exclusivity, so much so that most of the states over there are mired in ethnic rivalry or rather ethnic conflicts. But possibility of the laying of a trans Bangladesh rail network has the potential to work as umbilical cord to not just connect the states with the mainland but also with each other. If it occurs, it might just work as the perfect catalyst to revive its economy, put violence in grave & enhance inter-mingling.
