Northeasterns don't belong to India?

on Feb 03, 2014 , 10:29 am
We treat North Eastern people like their don't belong to this nation. We abuse them, we beat them up and we even kill them! Nido Taniam from Arunachal Pradesh DID NOT DESERVE THIS.

The way us Indians go crazy when we face racism in Australia or England or any other country makes me feel that we are really intolerant to racial bias. But when it comes to our behaviour within the country I am left speechless.

I am so ashamed to say that I belong to India! Don't you agree?

We are racist but we are far better than many other nations. There used to be a time when lot of Chinese(Indian Nationals) lived in India and there were rarely any NEIndians living in the rest of India. Over the past decade the Chinese have slowly moved out of India and lot of NEIndians began moving into other parts of India. The hostility towards China today has increased and often that is taken out on NEIndians as they resemble them somewhat...Secondly in NEI bollywood and Indian TV is banned in some parts and replaced by Korean & Chinese which is why they dress like them (although they're free to do whatever they want) This often confuses most people...NEIndians should know that racism is a reality and racism exists in NEI amongst themselves too but we can and we have lived together. We must understand ourselves and make ways to come closer and not find ways to go further away(as wanted by some organisations for vested interests)....The Indian constitution is the best in the world and has space for everyone including NEIndians...

Dear Friends, let me narrate one story which happened in my place and i witnessed it.In my district, there is one bazaar which are mainly run by the Hindi speaking people. During the summer 2009, a fire was broke out out in one hotel that also run by the Hindi speaking person.. since it was a dry season the fire spread like anything to other shops as well on both side on the Bazaar. Seeing the shops owners were so frightened that they all ran away from their shops and sits in the local playground which is nearby. they were so frightened they become numbed and cried with no tears in their eyes. From the start of the fire, our local people keep fighting the fire to stop spreading to other shops. They queued up in line with a bucket where the nearby residence passed out the water from their houses though it was a season where there is total scarcity of water..the fire was at last stop with the help of the local people and the Assam Rifles. what i am trying to say is that yes there are some unwanted cases which are mainly done by some armed group because of some political reasons. But in my observation there is great difference in our social and moral behavior in between. Our mindset and outlook toward human being (and particularly to the people from NE) in this city Delhi-Capital of India seems to be very discouraging. Whenever there is any accident or fighting or beating to whomever it is! people don't really bother and reluctant to help or intervene..i am from NE India and my experience as a student from NE in this capital is one of the worst; very much difference from what i was expecting before i came to Delhi...(by landlords, teachers,in metro, markets..etc, there is endless cases where we are being discriminated but we ignored it ..honestly!!)..And if you say that there is no such racial discrimination to the NE people..then..i don't know what you really mean it?.

This incident must not be taken as a racist attack. The police is to blame for leaving him alone near the incident place.

Indians are not racist.They do not possess anything to feel superior about as compared to the Europeans and so they do suffer from an inferiority complex vis-a-vis the 'goras' of the West. The only people that they feel they are superior to are the sub-Saharan Africans and hence they are slightly colour conscious and tend to equate the darker skinned South Indians with Africans which has made the word 'kalia' a pejorative description of a person in the same sense that the word 'blackie' is used in the UK or US. Mongoloids are described as 'chini' and for most of us our own Northeasterners fall into that category.which is, by the way, purely descriptive without further connotation of racial inferiority or superiority. Hence the death of the unfortunate student from Arunachal Pradesh is more likely than not the result of an on-the-spur altercation which led to physical assault and defnitely not an act of racism as in blacks versus whites killings we hear and read about from time to time.

Mass education is required to know our country's diversity.

In this billion strong population why should we generalise that a person belonging to a particular group/region/sect is being targetted? It could have been anybody. Condemn the cowardly act but do not generalise and create non-existant animosity!

I am not ashamed 2b an Indian. I am ashamed dat the people who committed this acts of racism, stupidness n by far the most uncivilized people living in da capital city called Delhi are Indians. Some people who thinks dat they can do nything they please whenever n however they want n by doing so, bring down the image of the whole country by their actions of selfishness n stupidity should be eradicated 4m our country itself 4 the of his/her life. They should either be given capital punishment or should be isolated for da rest of his/her life n should never b allowed 2 see the light ever again. 2 hell with this kind of people.
