Why Northeast people are treated as aliens?
As we all know that Northeast people are treated as aliens in most of the part of India. Discrimination towards Northeast Indians in our country is very high. People think that they are from different country and most of the people think that Northeast is not a part of India.
Discrimination happens against northeast resident mostly through the use of the offensive name like chinki, chini, Chinese, Japanese etc. Discrimination is the reality in Delhi, many of northeast feel most unsafe in Delhi.
There is a history of almost the whole of India, from Jammu & Kashmir to Tamil Nadu from Mughal to British from Rajasthan to Kolkata. But where is the glory of the seven sisters? Many students or people don’t even know — What are the seven sisters?
Lack of diversity of seven sisters (northeast states of India) is observed. You will not find much about seven sisters states in current studying material. It is very difficult to find things about the northeast in books.
The region of seven sisters has been ignored, people of these states are left behind the rest of the country.
There are seven states that currently in the northeast region.
There is no dowry culture in the entire Northeast, which is very beautiful. Assam is the largest producer of tea in India. Tripura is the most literate state in India. Almost 70% North East India’s area is covered by hills, which makes it one of the beautiful destinations for the tourists. North East is considered as the cleanest region in India. Mawlynnong in Meghalaya is the cleanest village in entire Asia. Wettest place on earth is in North East.
So apart from addressing issues, we also need to show empathy and compassion towards the northeast people. We all are one and should treat them as our brothers and sisters. We should treat them like Indians.
It is unfortunate that despite them being a part of India, we treat them as third World citizens. We ignore them, their achievements, their existence, and yet, we want them to conform to our notions of India
