The peaceful state of Arunachal Pradesh in the last week of February was in the news for all the wrong reasons if it had to be put on the perspective of how the indigenous people of the state felt and witnessed. The vexed issue of grant of Permanent Residential Certificate (PRC) for some Non-APST (Arunachal Pradesh Scheduled Tribe) communities who have been settled in the state for a long period of time, majority of them having been rehabilitated, post the devastating earthquake of 1950 by the civil administration after consultations with the local indigenous people. These communities included the Ahoms, Adivasis, Deories, Morans, Kacharis, Mishings and Ex-Servicemen settlers and basically concentrated in the districts of Changlang and Lohit.

An uneasy calm prevails in Halomira, Merapani, Titabor and Borholla Tea Garden areas of Assam’s Jorhat and Gologhat districts following a highly tragic incident that has taken place in recent time as more than 180 people died by consuming spurious chulai (hooch) or country liquor and more than 300 people had fallen seriously ill and shifted to hospitals since February 21.

A visit to the four affected tea garden areas is to witness and encounter a deep heart-wrenching atmosphere that left a trail of tragic incidents all around and a pathetic sight of devastated families losing their near and dear while death continues to hunt. At the cremation grounds, bodies being burn in rows which continues to come at every other hour with tears rolling from the eyes of their family members with screaming and chest beating – a horrible tear socked sight!
