 TOPOGRAPHY & ETHNICITY

On 22 September, the world witnessed a unique event in Assam of Northeast India, where the authority set 2479 rhino horns on fire as a mission to spread the message that the horns do not have any aphrodisiac value, because of which the gigantic animals, officially known as the greater one-horned rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicorns),  are hunted in Asia and Africa. The pledge of World Rhino Day was to drastically reduce the incidents of rhino-poaching with the government initiatives and full public support.

The Chief Ministers of Assam Himanta Biswa Sarma and Meghalya Conrad Sangma decided to adopt a "pragmatic approach" to amicably resolve the longstanding inter-state border dispute between the two states. The chief ministers of both the states met at Shillong with Conrad Sangma claiming 12 disputed places belonging to Meghalaya while Sarma justified with documents that those places belong to Assam. After detailed discussion, both the governments decided to move from status quo to solution, according to an official source. Both states have decided to form three-member committees on each side, which will be headed by Cabinet Ministers. It was agreed to discuss all the 12 places one by one and review claims, if possible, both the Chief Ministers will visit all the places.

It is really annoying that Assam’s border disputes with its four neighbouring States, Mizoram, Nagaland, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh,   still continue even in this era of globalisation. But the bickering states should understand that inter-State development is possible only if they far from doing so over boundary, and without further delay come forward to resolve the contentious issues among themselves amicably and with a give-and-take spirit. Our impression is that if the decades-old nagging problem is clinched once for all, the most-elusive peace and harmony will prevail along the disputed borders that are all the more essential for facilitating Inter-State trade and Commerce and the success of the Act East Policy.
