Hether they are destined to remain so While it may not be possible to overcome lingering hatred divisions and differences by brute force economic might or efforts at cultural or political assimilation there are other ways forward These include the process of engagement of accepting if not embracing the ‘Idea of India’ and working on forging connections between disparate cultures to overcome the mutual suspicions that have existed for decades Hazarika tells little known stories drawn from personal experience and knowledge of the way in which insurgents operate of the reality of border towns in the region the pain of victims and the courage of fighters on either side of the ideological and physical conflict in the jungles and i. Strangers No MoreAuthor Sanjoy HazarikaPublisher Aleph Book CoRating 495January 3 2016We nonchalantly stroll through the tangled lanes of Kohima the capital of a beautiful and troubled State of Nagaland which is nearly dead uiet as the people still recover from their New Year hangover We're on the seventh day of our study tour to North East India and after a day full of exploring studying and meetings decide to spend our evening exploring the markets in the magnificent hill town in desperate need of the artifacts fabrics garments and the wide range of traditional indigenous products from the home stateAs natural and obvious it sounds we're lost We can't find the routes to markets and end up asking a middle aged lady with a baby across her bosom at the end of the street who stares at us in curiousity as we approach herWhat unfolds in the next 40 seconds or so is flabbergasting and devastating of which me and my fellow travellers are still coping fromI won't assure you the exact line of dialogue from our my side but the sentences by her still reverberate crystal clear and I'll bet my life on thatAunty market ke liya raasta kaha se milegaWhere do we find the lane that leads us to city marketsLady Aaj toh sab bandh hai paanch tareek ke baad hi aapko kuch mil sakta haiAlmost everything is closed today you may get it only after 5th when the markets open upTheek hai aunty ShukriyaOkay thank youVaise aap kaha se aaye hoJi Mumbai seSensing her unawares of what we had just said I repeated Mumbai se Maharashtra seAcha toh aap India se aaye hoOh so you've come from IndiaAll of us stared at her in horror taking some time to realise what had hit usScene cut ForwardIt has been over two years now and although I understand this is not the story of the whole state and it is unfair to generalize this incident but I do understand that this feeling and nonchalant attitude and hostility naturally or deliberately lies among a large proportion of not just Nagaland but many of the states of the North East Indian stateBy this I don't mean identity crises or discrimination and alienation of this part of the country is the only challenge North East faces or it is the start and the end of all problems in the region what I mean is that it is the soul of the whole gamut and an umbrella that has held together other issues tight with it since India became independentAnd whom do we have to blame for the situation we have got ourselves intoStrangers No More is a comprehensive answer to all these uestions to some extent if not allIn this book Hazarika has picked up from where he left it in 1994 in his much lauded book 'Strangers Of The Mist'This book largely speaks about how far North East India has come in the last 25 years exploring all states and all issues that grapple them since eternity Hazarika has brilliantly nailed down important changes and overcoming dynamics with deep research and well travelled accounts in the region combining with his work in Delhi with successive GovernmentsStrangers No More is the go to book to understand the contemporary situation of the long troubled states of NorthEast IndiaStarting with the most volatile and long standing debated issue of Armed Forces Special Powers Act AFSPA the author minces no words to deride the provision and it's wild implementation by the Indian Government and the Armed Forces His obsession and irritation about this topic is visible all throughout the book with his no holds barred approach towards the draconian act peppered with stories about Irom Sharmila and incidents of naked Meitei Women protecting against the Indian Army with banners of Indian Army Rape UsFurther Hazarika gives us his experiences and insider accounts of his stint working in the Jeevan Reddy Committee to study the North Eastern challenge and AFSPA which surprisingly asked the government to repeal the draconian act leading it to be buried by the Delhi administrationHe uoted M K Narayanan the then National Security Adviser as complaining “When we picked Reddy we thought he was a ‘safe’ judge General V Raghavan would represent the army’s interests; Dr Nakade was a friend of the Home Minister and PP Shrivastav was a home ministry person Sanjoy Hazarika was in a minority How were we to know that he would turn everyone to his side Now we are stuck with a report we can’t implementThis is clear enough to show us the mindset and efforts of the government to deal with the never ending troubles of this ever beautiful part of the country which despite having all it needs like fertile lands conducive climate abundance of natural resources minerals will available labour has failed to even scramble or crawl towards what we call progressHazarika has taken apt and surprising potshots at Lal Denga and how the state has to deal with violence and plunder because of one man's lust for powerThe author also provides us anecdotes from his efforts for talks from back channels with the NSCM IM stalwarts Thuingaleng Muivah and Isak Chishi Swu on behalf of DelhiHe has extensively talked about the illegal immigration issue and the categorization 'Bangladeshi' and the much debated dynamics of this issueThe only thing that I felt was not convenient and many would find is that the topics discussed are not in any type of order or timeline as the author picks up random issues unrelated to the previous one which I feel must get overshadowed and would not be a major issue when you have such a masterful compilation of wisdom lined up for you in the guantletHonestly this is not an exaggertion but I cannot point put anything that is not perfect in this book A masterpiece that is and will stay the best book to be written on Northeast India for years to come unless Sanjoy Hazarika himself comes up with another book soon because I don't see anyone alive coming close to an account study and analysis with solutions about NorthEast India of this levelA complete harbinger in it's true sense combined with the calm preacher Hazarika isRaging BookshelfBuy your copies at
