Appeal: History Repeats in Assam

What happened to Bharath many times before is happening again.

Another country or thought system or religion is after us once more. Over 2,00,000 of our citizens have been displaced.

Imagine if it were to happen in our location; say Karnataka or Tamil Nadu or Gujarath or Maharashtra or Uttar Pradesh or Andhra Pradesh.

If foreigners had kicked me from my home then I could not have blogged and you could not have read this. Our families would have no home, no belongings, no money…nothing. Our children would have no future.

We would be like political refugees that we have read about in papers. We would know what Kashmiri Pandits felt like, what Red Indians felt like, or Incas felt when decimated, or thrown out, from their own land.

For now, for just a little while let us forget our differences. You and I can still hate each other eternally, for now let us lend a hand to our brothers and sisters.

You will have the eternal gratitude of all who love Bharath. If nothing you will have done the right thing for another human being, that should help for now and hereafter.

Param Foundation, associated with Seva Bharathi, is lending a hand on our behalf in Assam. I donated some money and got update below from them:

Present Activities by Seva Bharathi and condition in Assam:

  • Seva Bharathi has set up 3 base camps for medical relief exercise.
  • 2 in Kokrajhar and 1 in Gossaigaon.
  • They have pressed 2 ambulances and two teams of doctors and helpers at these camps
  • Medicines are being given at these camps for contagious and water borne diseases.
  • Relief materials which are of immediate importance are being provided in these camps now.
  • Mosquito coils, bread, biscuits, bed sheets were distributed.
  • They expect that people will stay in relief camps for at least 20 days to a month as many areas are still under grip of violence
  • Curfew has been lifted only in few parts of Kokrajhar and Gossaigaon where violence has abated.
  • There are other areas and districts where violence is still happening and curfew is still in vogue. (Seva activities cannot reach them now)
