The Northeast Region of India comprising the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim is known to many as the ‘unsung song of Indian history’.
Tucked away in the ‘remote’ Northeast and joined with “mainland” India only by a 21 km long ‘chicken neck’ corridor, the region is blended with diverse geographical and multicultural features, and is a beautiful mosaic of Mother Nature. It will be a grave mistake and a defeated challenge to present the region in a single definition or description. And neither we, nor should anyone ever make such an erroneous attempt.
Environmental degradation, habitat destruction, pollution, water scarcity, biodiversity loss, depleting forest cover, cultural pollution, big dam construction leading to environment and social implications, social unrest – are but a few of the issues demanding immediate attention in India’s North East Region.
At the same time, a relative reluctance of the Central Government to act and a simultaneous (and consequent) exodus of a majority of the youth population has been only adding fuel to the fire. Now, with the threat of climate change looming large, the only option is to come together for sustainable development of the region, before time runs out and most, if not all, is lost.
