It will be very helpful at the later age.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          The technique is that you have to place your feet firmly on the ground, tighten your stomach muscles and then clasp your buttocks and slowly stand up with an ease.

 

Calculate your bills:-

While you are in the market for shopping, keep a mental tally of your cost. You just keep a mental tally of your cost. You just add the cost of every item you have purchased in your mind. It is a mental exercise.

This small mental challenge will activate your “Working memory” part of your brain which is crucial for focus, concentration, and planning.

 

Three cups of coffee a day:-

Any type of coffee is good for your health. Whether it is instant, espresso or decaffeinated. The presence of phytochemicals or antioxidants in coffee gives protection against diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. It also improves cognitive function, improves reaction time, boosts memory and lowers the risk of Alzheimer.

 

A bowl of curd:-

A Cambridge University study last year showed that one small pot (120 gram) of low-fat fermented curd eaten regularly was enough to cut the risk of type 2 diabetes by 28%.

A toothbrush is breeding ground for bacteria. Scientists at Manchester University in the UK found that the average toothbrush contains 10 million germs including a high percentage of potentially dangerous bacteria such as E. Coli.                                                                                                                                                    Therefore, to kill these bugs, rinse the brush every few days under boiling water.

 

Magical cocoa:-

Men and women aged between 50 to 69 years performed better and faster in memory tests after three months of drinking a brew rich in high doses of cocoa flavanols. The participants at the beginning of the research had the memory of a typical 60-year-old and after three months their memory was equal to a typical 30 to 40-year-old people.

 

Make your own garden:-

The most of the green vegetables found in the market are very unhealthy for your body. Because farmers use many pesticides, insecticides to raise the vegetables to increase the productivity. Therefore it becomes inappropriate to consume unless it is organic.                                                                                                     What is the solution to this? You can make a small garden in front, backside or on the roof of your house. Use only organic manures and home decomposed materials. It will serve your daily needs of vegetables. You become healthy by eating fresh vegetables and fit by working for it.

Three habits that instantly drives you to success in life

We live our life by habits. Build good habits and you are on the way to success in life and vice-versa. All the successful people from different essential habits for them. Some even wear the same pair of clothes again and again.

 

So forming habits is an essential factor in your life. Therefore, here I present three habits that will instantly lead you to have success.

 

  1. Add positivity in life

  2. Action to beat procrastination

  3. Morning mantras.

1) Positivity:

This is the essential habit there out in the world. If you are not positive in your attitude, probably you are not gonna do well. You have to add a positive viewpoint to everything in your life.

Hack it is very easy to say stay positive, be positive. I have always said to myself whole lots of years to stay positive in difficult situations. But it did not help me at all. My life remains poor, helpless and emotionally devastated.

But hey, there is a way to really active positive vibe in our life. By BEING positive, other than to be positive. By BEING positive means to cultivate positivity from your inner self. We can cultivate positivity by-

  1. a) Praying regularly: Pray to your god regularly in the morning and evening. It will develop self-confidence in you and slowly fill positivity in your life.
  2.                  b) Meditate: I can’t leverage the benefit of meditation in words. Only five minutes of it will do. You will unlimited positive vibes for the day.

 

 

2)ACTIONTo beat the Procrastination:

I had been procrastinated for many years. I know it is hard not to procrastinate. I delayed my works for as long as possible. I have skipped post-graduation, Teachers training institute and many important works in my life. This is a sheer waste of time. You have to get out of it. Act now.

‘Action’ is the only effective way you can beat it. Figure out what is most important and work on those first. After that figure out you like to do most. Do more of those works and it will make you comfortable. Slowly leverage the thing you like most and then do it for the rest of your life. You will never procrastinate again.

 

3) Morning Mantras:

Morning Mantras doesn’t mean the charms of the holy books. It simply means to wake up early in the morning and follow some mini habits. Though these are mini habits, they will make you successful instantly.

 

You know I was a very late riser. In my boarding school, we have to rise 4.30 in the morning. I felt like the most unfortunate boy in the world. But it did well in my life. Though I could not carry on that in the later years, until now. I wake up at 5 am every day.

 

Do you know that all the successful people in the world wake up very early in the morning? From Mahatma Gandhi did it too and CEO’s of different multinational companies does it. Every successful people in every sphere of life follow the morning mantras.

                                      a) Physical Exercise:

Half an hour of physical exercise in the outdoor is the best way to start your day. Physical exercise opens our eyes open and boosts concentration. And you will be healthy. Instead of physical exercise, you can also choose to play an outdoor game like football, cricket, golf etc.

                                       b) Mindful breathing:

To do mindful breathing you have to concentrate on your breathing. 5 minutes every day will do the job. Sit straight in an open space and breath in slowly. Concentrate on the breath and then slowly release your breath without breaking your concentration.  First few days will be difficult for you to concentrate. The mind will divert in many ways but it is okay. Practice it every day no matter what and you will slowly begin to get results.

                                      c) Meditation:

Above, in the point 1, I have said about meditation. You have to do it in the morning. Find more about meditation here.

 

                                       d) Read:

This is my favorite part. Reading is the best medicine according to me. In the morning a five-minute reading will do the job for you. Not if you are a professional writer though. You know Bill gates reads a book in a week and Warren Buffet is an extensive reader. And not to tell about Oprah Winfrey!

                                        e)Write:

Just jot down the points which you have to do today. Only five minutes of writing your to-do list for the day will remind your works. And you will on track for the whole day and have a happy ending to each day in your life.

Make these three things your habit for life. You will find that your life is instantly boosted up and beginning to have success in life.

Think of what you like to do and make a list of it. No matter what comes to your mind, just jot it down. Then read the list carefully several times. Now cut the points which you do monthly. After that cut the points which you do weekly and occasionally.

 

Now you should have the points which you do every day. Carry on doing that thing every day and forget about those you have cut down. Continue to do the things which you enjoy doing regularly. If it is more than one thing, it’s all right. Eventually, you will find the particular thing you are really passionate about. Then stick to it together in your whole life and make a career out of it.

Tips and techniques to write your first book

We all have a story inside us. And every story is unique of its own. Therefore, we all can become an author and write books. But if you do not love writing, probably you are not going to write a book because writing is hard. It is a very time-consuming and less rewarding in the short run.

But I know that you have the gut and patience to write your first book. And if you find happiness, entertainment writing then you may become a professional writer one day.

Here are 10 tips and techniques to write your first book.

 

 

Write:

 

My first tips for you to ‘Write’. Write anything which comes to your mind. If you think it is shit then write shit every day. No matter what you know or no nothing, write nothing. This is the basic rule of writing a book. You won’t ever going to have perfect words to write, thoughts that sparkle you at the beginning. Therefore, you have to write your bogus ideas and thoughts. After writing for a certain time and trials your original ideas will start to come out. And soon you will be writing from your heart and you will get fun and happiness.

 

 

 

Get up early:

This is very easy said than done. Because it is not always easy to wake up early in the morning in these days. The internet and social media are getting so much importance in our life that we can’t go to bed early enough to get up early. But if we able to then it can cause wonders for us.

In the morning our brain is fresh and clear of any unnecessary activities. If we can sit down and write down for two or more hours then our productivity will tremendously increase. Therefore, jot down some words while your brain is half asleep and your editor is not fully awake.

 

 

 

Read:

Reading is the base for writing. Read as much as you can. Read the great and canonical authors to get an idea about great literature. You will get ideas while reading, the technique to write, different forms and structures will be acquired by you. Therefore, first read a lot, read voraciously, extensively.

 

 

 

Take Notes:

 

Don’t just read, also take notes. Carry a notebook, cards, pocket diary, smartphone equipped with a note-taking app is a must. You will have to write while reading because no one can remember everything. If you jot down the important points you have read then your learning graph will increase. When you write then those things are stored in your permanent memory.

You will get another benefit carrying a notebook with you. Ideas tend to come at unexpected moments. If you don’t catch them and write in a journal, the app it is lost forever. Therefore, to take your writing to the next level take notes and carry a writing device all the time with you.

 

 

 

 

 

Stop writer’s block and  Procrastination:

 

Writer’s block and procrastination is the single most enemy of the writers.

To curb out writer’s block you have to stop writing and concentrate on reading. Read all the different topics you like, interesting and find useful. Go for a short vacation, leave your house and take a long walk to the meadows. Start writing when your interest returns.

To curb procrastination you have to exercise, meditate regularly in the morning. It will energize you physically and mentally. Your mental capacity to beat procrastination will increase. Also switch off the television, internet, and porn. Focus towards writing and better wonder will happen.

 

 

Set a word count goal for every day:

Writers world is different every day. Sometimes we feel very energetic and enthusiastic and can write much more fluently. And in some other days, it is very difficult to put down some words in page or screen. It is normal because we all are human and we have our ups and downs.

But if you want to excel in writing then keep a goal of word count for every day and stick to the schedule strictly. Stephen King, have a goal of 2000 words per day, even birthdays and Christmas. If you don’t have any goals then you won’t achieve anything as you are floating in a vacuum. Keep your own goal and follow it without fail.

 

 

 

 

Trust your intuition:

 

As we already know that every human being is different from each other so is the process of writing. Choose your own path. Follow your intuition while writing. You may not be following your planned plot, style while writing. It may lead to another place or style. So, let be it. Go with your unique ideas and creativity.

 

 

 

Scrivener:

It is a wonderful software dedicated to writing. Scrivener is also a publishing tool and has some useful productivity tools.

 

There is provision to set your project target, say 1,00000 words, for example. And also the session target for example 2000 words.

To increase focus there is a compose mode where the screen is a total piece of a blank paper.

 

 

 

Enjoy the process:

There is no need to continue to write if you don’t enjoy. Creativity is hard and painful if you have no interest in it.

When you enjoy the process then your audience will also enjoy it. It shows in your writing.

Try to write by showing the audience the funny part. Funny part means not to write jokes. When you fill your writings with silly jokes, the people will skip that and soon you will follow the path.

 

 

 

Observe your surroundings:

We live in this wonderful world filled with nice people. They are different in color, creed, shape, and size. Their behavior, a way of living differs from each other. Observe all of them carefully. You will give an insightful story or plot to write.

And socializing more is helpful. You will watch their life and behavior. And then it is more easy and fruitful to embed them in your writing as characters.

Smart writing tips for writers and bloggers

You are smarter than the people that surround you. You want to learn writing because you want to blog, write a novel or do content marketing. But you have failed to draw the attention of your reader. It is so frustrating. I know it because I have gone through that stage.

 

We all writers share some common dreams. We want to touch the heart of our readers and to get famous, financially successful. But most of the writer’s don’t even make $1000 a year! That is harsh. But that can be changed. How?
Write good or die!

Writing good is hard. As the competition in the writing world is high there is more demand to improve writing standard constantly. Therefore, I have compiled below some smart writing tips to help you improve your writing.

 

 

Smart writing tips

Personalize your writing:

I know that most content marketer out there will tell you to not say a single word about yourself or how do you feel. But does the readers love to read same boring contents every time? I don’t think so. People love to get personal. They want to know your perspective on a certain thing.
Put some of your own delicacies into your writing. People will relate to you sooner or later.

 

 

 

Write, write, write and write some more:

What does a writer do? Writer writes. This is so simple. The more you write more you will learn, develop your writing style, less will be writer’s block and procrastination.

This is the most important smart writing tips I want to share with you. You want to become a famous and successful writer? Then write every day, all the time when you are not doing other things.

 

 

Smart writing tips

Read and learn:

Read when you do not write. Reading is the foundation of writing. The more you read, the more you learn. You will come to the contact of great and famous writers through their writings. You will know their writing style and can learn it. Sometimes it is good to copy them until you develop your own.

Reading is so important that some great writers even say, “if you don’t have time to read then you don’t have the time to write.” It is clear that if you want to write well and influence people then you must read.

 

 

 

Write simple words:

Do you think people love to read big words and complex sentences? If you think yes, then you are wrong. Everyone loves to read simple words and simple sentences.

Write simple sentences in the present tense. Simple is more effective. It directly enters the reader’s mind and heart.

 

 

 

Write to the point:

Write your sentences to the point. There is no need to exaggerate when you can say your word in a few words. So make your sentences short. Short sentences are easy to understand and grasp.

To the point writing also means to write in active voice. People don’t like to read passive sentences too often.

Example:
Active voice= “The hunter killed the lion.”
Passive voice=“The lion was killed by the hunter.”

Write short paragraphs:

People are going more impatient these days. Why? It is due to the internet, social media, and less time for leisure. What is the impact of it on human behavior?

They became less patient. They want to read short paragraphs.

Break your paragraphs into many short ones. Put some useful pictures in between it.

 

 

 

Don’t repeat:

Repeating words and phrases, again and again, is boring. It will show you as an ignorant.

When you repeat the same words, again and again, your text becomes bored and uninteresting. Because of it readers will either stop reading your text or go to sleep.

See, I have already bored you.

 

 

 

Edit harshly:

Be a critic of yourself. Edit your work harshly. It is not easy to be strict on self, but it is necessary. Edit several times by yourself.

If you have some trusted friends then forward your text to them to edit.

There is another simple but effective way to edit your text. Read the text backward. Reading the text backward can show you the hidden and unexpected errors.

Write for the world:

English is a global language. Most of the people in the world understand and can read English. But not everyone is an expert. Therefore, it is better to keep your writings easy to understand. How do you find that you are writing is understand by the non-English speaking peoples?

 

Show your writing to someone from the non-English speaking country. If he or she understand it then you are good to go ahead.

 

 

Plan your text:

 

Planning is essential in writing. Whether you are writing a novel, short story or content for your blog, planning gives you the framework ready to work on. You can write down the plan in a notebook, computer or simply plan it in your mind.

Planning is the half work done. It saves time and structures your thought. And you will have to work less to polish your text after you have planned everything.

 

Learn correct grammar:

Correct grammar is the cherry on the top of a cake. If your grammar is not correct your writing will lack the ability to convey the correct meaning.

I recommend the book “The Elements of Style” written by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White to keep beside you. This small but valuable book is one of the most comprehensive resources to use correct grammar and other useful topics.

 

 

 

Be unique and innovative:

The world is full of mediocre people and works. Nobody cares about them. If you want to be different from the herd then you have to act differently. Do not be a copy-cat.

Use your inner intuition to be unique. And try to innovate new ideas and ways. Lead the world, show a new path.

 

 

 

Research your work:

People love to read data and percentage. Our brain is so used to it that when it sees data and percentage it believes them as authentic. Use this strategy in your writing to empower it.

Research your work thoroughly, and people will love it and believe in it.

These are the few smart writing tips for you to improve your writing. How did you find it? Please share if you have any smart writing tips in your mind.

 

Comment below with your suggestions. And don’t forget to like and share with your family and friends.

How to find your writing style

We are writers. What does a writer do? Of course, a writer writes. But not all writer’s becomes successful. Why? Because of many reasons. And most important one for me to not able to find their writing style. They have not learned the craft and have not yet found their own voice.

Here, following are some suggestions and cautionary hints that may help you to find your writing style.

Do lots of revisions:

Revise after you have completed your manuscript. Revise and rewrite your work for several times. Because your first draft is just a rough work. It may have some serious flaws, or you may have to change the whole manuscript totally.

Thank God! We have access to the computer. You can put your work in a word document to proofread by yourself. If you want more advance method then Scrivener is the perfect software to revise your story. Some people like to revise in a printed copy. Try both of them to find out in which method you are more comfortable.

 

 

Overwriting is bad:

Do you tend to overwrite while writing on a computer? If yes, it may make your work hard to understand. Delete the unnecessary words unless they are extraordinary.

Overwriting is a bad habit. And excessive and flashy writing will be hard to digest for the readers and they will go to sleep.

 

 

 

Do not exaggerate:

When you exaggerate, readers will be on defense, and suspicion will be clouded over their mind. They will lose confidence in your writing. . One single exaggeration may destroy your whole work.

 

 

 

Stay away from these adjectives:

Rather, very, little and pretty are the adjectives to watch out. They are dangerous wild beasts. Overuse of them will make your work feeble and weak.

 

 

Mind your spelling:

It is a basic rule of writing.  You have to learn and know the basics and use correct spellings. If your spellings are wrong then readers will instantly go away from you and never come back.

 

It is more relevant in this technologically driven world. We use SMS, email and other massage giving services where we use a much shorter version of words. It may become a habit and occur in your writing. Therefore, take care of your spellings carefully.

 

 

 

Stop over explanation:

As a writer, we should not tell everything. Let the reader understand the manner or condition through the conversation.

When we use adverbs like “he said”, “she replied”, we tend to explain their mood by writing like, “he said willingly”, “she replied hesitantly”. They are annoying and confusing to the readers.

 

 

Look after awkward adverbs:

You have to take a participle or an adjective, add-ly, with it, you have an adverb now.

It is better not to use them.

Few examples are a tangle, tired, much, more, thus, over etc. If we put -ly with them like tangledly, muchly, they become awkward adverbs.

Thusly, it becomes an awkward sentence. So, avoid it.

 

 

 

Make your dialogues clear:

The dialogues should indicate who is the speaker. If readers can’t understand who is speaking to him, they will be lost. They may have to reread it to solve the puzzle of obscurity. Therefore, make it clear.

While writing dialogue, put your attributives where naturally the break comes.

 

“Now, my girl, we will see, she said, “How well you have learned your lesson.”

 

 

“Now, my girl, she said, we will see how well you have learned your lesson.”

 

 

 

Get rid of fancy words:

Avoid the ostentatious, beautiful, alluring, elaborative and cute words. We have to use more Anglo-Saxon words because it is a livelier tongue than Latin.

So avoid the words like beautious, curvaceous, prodigious, discombobulate, etc. There is nothing wrong with using them- all are good, but some are better than others. It is a matter of ear, a matter of feeling correct and good.

 

 

 

Be clear:

Clarity is the principal element of a good writing style. Though obscurity sometimes, serves as a literary yearning, clarity can be a virtue.

No one wants to read obscure sentences. It should be easy to understand. Do not keep secrets in your mind to keep your readers in suspense.

It is better to start fresh when you are hopelessly mired in a sentence. You may be in needs to break the sentence apart and replace it with two or more sentences.

 

 

 

Do not throw your own opinion:

We have our opinion almost in everything. And it is very hard to not write it. Everyone may not like your opinion and nor likely to agree with you. Throwing opinions indiscriminately leaves the mark of egoism on a work.

So, try not to put your opinion often in your work.

 

 

 

Do not use figures of speech often:

The Simile is a useful device of writing, but if it is used more often, one after another, they are only distracting than shining. Readers don’t want to compare everything with something else.

We don’t have to mix up the metaphor. That is, we should not start by calling something as ballon and end by calling it an elephant.

 

 

 

Put yourself in the background:

Writers should put themselves in the background in their writing. We should not show our mood and temper, but readers attention should be drawn to the meaning of the text. If the text is good enough, the mood and temper of the writers would automatically be revealed in front of the readers.

Therefore, it is our prime duty to put ourself in the background. And slowly as we become proficient in our craft, our style will emerge, because we ourself will emerge. Then we will be able to have our separate identity as our mind and heart will be different from other people.

 

 

 

Be natural:

Write what comes to your mind naturally. Use the words and sentences that readily come to your mind.

Do not worry if you are subconsciously imitating others. Because a language itself begins with imitation. When a child borns, he imitates the sounds made by his parents; the child imitates the language which is his mother tongue. Sooner or later you would find your own voice.

Here are some of the books from the closest of my heart which will expand your mind and show you a new way of life. They are with no particular order and I love all the books equally.

 

THE ALCHEMIST: by Paulo Coelho

When I first heard the name of the book then I thought it is a book of science and experiments. But several times I got this book on the favorite list of many great minds. One of them is Bill Gates, the richest person in the Universe. It is a story of a shepherd boy from the Spanish province of Andalusia who dreams of traveling the world in search of treasure as desirable as any ever found. From his home, he journeys to the exotic markets of North Africa and then into the Egyptian desert, where a fateful encounter with the alchemist awaits him. It is an unforgettable story about the essential wisdom of listening to our heart and, above all, following our dreams.

 

KARMA YOGA: by Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda was a great preacher of Hindu religion and saint. In this book, he reveals the karma or work’s effect on the character, what is our duty and shows us the path to complete freedom. We can’t help the world but instead we help ourself. The only way to attain complete freedom is by non-attachment in everything we do and own.

This book will give you a new perspective towards life. You will understand the truth of life and become steady and calm even in between fierce battles.

 

How To Stop Worrying And Start Living: by DALE CARNEGIE

This book has become my private doctor, mentor, and therapist. When I was in college I had a very bad habit of worrying about everything. My life was very poor and dissolute. Nothing interested me and I could achieve nothing in that period of my life. All i was lost in my worrying thoughts and habits.

This is the first book that taught me how to stop worry. It didn’t change me in a month or a year. But slowly and surely it brought change in me and one day i could realize that my worrying habits are gone. Of course, there are many other books who helped me to do that but this one is the primary one.

 

THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA: by Ernest Hemingway

This is a very thin but effective book. This book is set in the Gulf Stream off the coast of Havana, a story of an old man, a young boy, and a giant fish. This is a timeless and unique vision of the beauty and grief of man’s challenge to the elements in which he lives. It is a story of vigor and courage which a man has to undergo in his life.

It shows us the heroic true nature and struggles of a human life.

 

THINK AND GROW RICH by Napoleon Hill

This a must read the book if you want to grow rich. Rich here is not only in the terms of money but also in every field of life. We work hard, do everything we can but do not succeed and remain poor. This book explains in details why we remain poor still trying hard.

Napoleon Hill has given his twenty-five years of youth to research and write this book. He studied thoroughly the hundreds of great American richest person’s life and thought about money. He has made certain formulas to think, act and grow immense rich which you can imagine.

 

RICH DAD POOR DAD by Robert T. Kiyosaki

This is the best personal finance book of all time. Here Robert has challenged and changed the way tens of millions of people around the world think about money. The general people think about earning and saving. They simply buy a big house, beautiful car and other things which they think of their great possession and asset. But according to Kiyosaki the house, car and other things only a liability that drains out our pocket. Instead of buying them we have to buy the real assets and invest in the share market.

He said, “The main reason people struggle financially is that they have spent years in school but learned nothing about money. The result is that people learn to work for money… but never learn to have money work for them.”

 

MAN’S SEARCH FOR MEANING by Viktor E. Frankl

This is a classic tribute to hope from the Holocaust. One of the outstanding classics to emerge from the Holocaust, it is the true story of the author of his struggle for survival in Auschwitz and other Nazi camps.

He was a therapist and doctor. He developed his own philosophy to survive the Holocaust. And this philosophy becomes water in the draught, hope in despair to live one more day to get freedom from the hell.

 

THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING: by Norman Vincent Peale.

This book has literally changed my world in a better way. He is known as the father of positive thinking. This book is written to suggest techniques and to give examples which demonstrate that you do not need to be defeated by anything, that you can have peace of mind, improved health, and a never ceasing flow of energy.

Every chapter of this book gives you true peace, energy, and happiness. This is a true book to learn to preach positive thinking and achieve success in every field of life. The Power of Positive Thinking is a simple, practical, heartfelt guide to enable everyone to enjoy confidence, success, and joy.

Assam is in the verge of dividing into two parts: The Brahmaputra and The Barak Valley

Assam is going through a very difficult situation. As a border state with many foreign countries it is already have numerous problems. As NRC updation process is going on from past three years there arised a new dangerous problem of Citizenship Amemdment bill, 2016 on top of it. This is an unbearable condition for the people of Assam after suffering from so many things from the previous decades.

Now, as the NRC updation process is about to finish many organisations and parties are trying to hinder its progress. Because if the NRC process carry on at this pace and accuracy then lots of Muslim and Hindu foreigners are bound to come into book and declare them as foreigner and illegal citizen of India. They will be either thrown out if the country to their respective countries or will be cutted of all the rights and privilage as a citizen enjoys. They will be deprived of Govt jobs, will have no security of any work, they have to live as a stateless people. Therefore, the Government of India under the leadership of our honorable prime minister Mr. Narendra Modi is trying to implement the Citizenship Amemdment bill 2016, in Assam. A key amendment in the bill seeks to grant citizenship to people without valid documents from six minority communities- Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan after six years of residence in India.

Because of the bill the Assam state has divided into two regions. The Brahmaputra valley and Barak valley. The Brahmaputra valley is vehemently opposing the bill but the Barak valley is eagerly supporting the bill. The Brahmaputra with 32 districts protesting against the bill because of the secularism prevails here and the tolerance of the people for all religious people. But the Barak valley with 3 district is opposing the bill as there is majority of Bengali Hindu and lots of illigal migrants from Bangladesh.

Assam has been always remained a dumping ground from the Independance. But the people are not ready to tolerate more. This is shown as still protest is going on widespread though the Joint Parliamentary Committee had went back. Then a question arise in the mind of the common people. Is Assam is going to be divided into two parts? The answer is no, the Assam goveenment and people will not allow so. And the Barak valley is not a big place in area, the idea only recently developed and the economic condition is very poor. The Bodos with strong culture and unity is not being able to attain a separate statehood then how can the Barak valley can? This is not going to happen very soon.

And further the Chief Minister of state Sarbananda Sonowal after long time of quiet said he has no reason to continue on his post if he could not protect the interest of the peopleof the state.
