So after few months of a near- congenial ambience prevailing  across Assam since the publication of the final National Register of Citizens on 31st August this year excluding a little over 19 lakh people , the air of the agitation-weary State  yet again decidedly  gets heavy and tension high following lots of excitement stemming from the incumbent BJP government’s  recent announcement that it will bring in and pass  the proposed Citizenship(Amendment) Bill (CAB), 2019  both  in the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha during the current session of parliament which begins from November 18 last. That the ruling party has already made up its mind to convert the CAB into a law is clearly discernable during the recent visit of Union Home Minister Amit Shah to Guwahati where he expressed the party’s commitment to go ahead with it. The Citizenship (Amendment) Bill is among the 27 Bills the ruling BJP or NDA government has approved for introduction and passage in the Lok Sabha.  Although the Bill has not clarified about what will be a fresh cut-off year, yet from the media reports it seems that the new cut-off year can be 1951 instead of the existing cut-off date of midnight of March 24, 1971 set as per the historic Assam Accord, 1985, for updating the already-completed process of the NRC.

Very importantly UN recently opines that water management must play a central role in adapting to the worst effects of climate change and reducing greenhouse gases.

Reflecting The Reality

It is well known a fact today that water scarcity poses a great threat before economic growth, human rights and national security. As per recent UN estimates around 1.2 billion people  - around 20 percent of world population - were living in areas where the limits of sustainable water use had already been reached or breached. It is high time that the issue needs to be placed high on the global agenda. In fact, the world is urgently required to adapt to the reality. There is still enough water for all of us if and only if we keep it clean and share the same. In fact we face the challenge that we must make safer stores of water available to all.

In present education system, where most of the teachers of schools are running parallel commercial coaching in their tuition centres and compelling students to take private coaching but to break this commercialization of education in the name of private tuition centres,  a seed of education is already planted this year at Gauripur (Assam) with 100's of students in the name of Assam Heritage Senior Secondary School with the message that "Our students don't need any private tuitions as because we are with them".

 

This newly established higher secondary school at Gauripur really is an example and takes challenges to break the parallel tuition system which is slowly killing the aim and objective of the schools and colleges in the society.

 

It is a fact, that the interest of students to attend the school is gradually losing, rather they become ironically dependent on private tuitions of their school teacher and if this goes on, the country will lose the best brains and talents who cannot afford the fees of private tuition.
