Good to hear from you. How are you and the family doing? Hope Jorhat has been good to you all.
I read your article. I agree with some of your commentary. They are thoughtful and insightful.
I am however not sure if you really tried hard enough to gauge WHY this issue not only does not
get resolved ( which of course is impossible, if world history and recent ones at that is any guide), it does
not even get a rudimentary bit of SINCERE attention that it deserves.
Where I disagree completely is your conclusion, attested to by the title of the article, that it is the
"Oxomiyar Mohanubhobota', where Mohanubhobota ( noble and humane attitudes) all of a sudden is something
to be derided and denied, that is at the root of the inaction on alleviating the problem if not eradicating it.
On that front I think you have done our people a disservice, by
A: Pointing to a FALSE cause
B: Attacking what should be promoted and always held in high esteem, that is traits like Mohanubhobota
( noble and humane attitudes).
But instead, IF you had taken a no-holds-barred, no-sacred-cows look at the issues to point out WHERE the
problems lie, then you would have provided an immense service. I like to think you are eminently able
to do that. And I will look forward to a follow-up editorial, where you will tackle the REAL stumbling blocks
which have PREVENTED any attainable, effective, and sustainable measure from being in implemented.
