The Central Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi is contemplating for privatisation of the nationalised banks for quite some. It was not surprising when the decision was announced by the Union Finance Minister, Nirmala Sitharaman, while presenting the budget recently. She also made it crystal-clear that the government’s intention is to fine-tune the performance of the public sector banks and the privatisation would only augur well for their long-term growth. She was also not averse to informing that henceforth the private banks would take care of the government-related work like the Income Tax and Pension scheme, instead of the nationalised banks, speaks volume of the government’s seriousness in facilitating the process.

Speculating about what will be outcome of any election in any region, be it Assembly, parliamentary or even civic bodies’, polls can be of a tall order provided it is a triangular contest. In Assam, the Assembly election round the corner, this time by all account, seems to be a triangular one, with the main struggle at most constituencies being between the two major adversaries at the fray spilling the bean against each other, that is between the rainbow ruling combination in Assam with the Bharatiya Janata Party –led coalition and the grand old party, the Congress-led six party new grand alliance. In 2016, the Congress fought the State Assembly election on its own because the AIUDF influence that time around was declining in the State as then winning 13 seats against 18 seats bagged in the 2011 Assembly polls.

When the human civilization was comparatively young nearly 2722 years ago with political turbulence sweeping Levant which then formed the Eastern Mediterranean of Western Asia, the mighty Assyrian Empire exiled the 10 Jewish tribes of Israel.

One among them was Bnei Menashe, one of the 10 tribes!

We get glimpses of this expulsion in the Hebrew Bible and other historical references including that of Flavius Josephus, the 1st century Jewish scholar who fought against the Roman Empire but ultimately took shelter in Rome to compile the history of Israelites.

They accessed to the then inaccessible Manipur and Mizoram braving heat, stand storms, cold, mountains, jungles, rivers and seas risking their very lives, Bnei Mesashe people settled down there.

Republic Day is the special day for the people of India which came into existence much later after the struggle withholding the emotions, love and sacrifices made by our ancestors & freedom fighters. We are blessed to celebrate it with valor and elaborate it our generations to come. It honours the day on which the Constitution of India came into effect on 26 January 1950 replacing the Government of India Act (1935) as the governing document of India and thus, turning the nation into a newly formed republic.

It has been celebrated since years showcasing the gallantry of India in the national capital, New Delhi, at the Rajpath before the President of India. On this day, ceremonious parades takes place at the Rajpath, which are performed as a tribute to India; its unity in diversity and rich cultural heritage.
