The Other Side of the Coin: Counter view on NE Discrimination

February 25, 2014


The entire North East (NE) Indian community today here in Delhi is slightly agitated. The age old issue of racial discrimination against the community is back again and this time things tend to be little more vocal then what used to be earlier.

How Media has failed to project Assam

July 14, 2012


It is a known fact that the main stream Indian media has always been ignorant to Assam and its neighbouring seven sisters.
