Recently there has been a lot of news about how the North Easteners of India are mistreated by its mainstream citizens and it is rather shameful for the country. Whenever an Indian abroad gets assaulted or abused, the Indian Government is the first to condemn to these attacks and term it as “discrimination against Indians”. But when the same thing happens to the North East people who come to the metros to study or work, the Government does not do anything at all. The Government goes all out to support the ‘victim” and in the recent case of the Indian diplomat even went to the extent of challenging the action of the foreign country in question and retaliating against the foreign country’s citizens in India.
It is high time that Indians should grow up and recognise the fact that North East people are part of your country and the sooner they recognise that, the better for India. To end this on a funny note, it is high time that these racist Indians realise that they are the only strange looking people in the whole of South Asia..isn’t that food for thought?
