(A Conversation with Zoheisa staying in the Delhi)
A short and challenging conversation with my sisters’ Zoheisa who stayed in Delhi, is being put into articles in order to reflect all citizens of the world, mainly to my own brothers and sisters of Indian. It seems there is no other option to solve the racial discrimination faced by the North East people in India. The saying goes “If there is a wheels-there is a way”, who were the so called wheels? Of Couse, you and I are the wheels.
Yes! There are so many good, excellent, inspiration political leaders, civil servant, sports persons and many excellent social workers/ social activists from the North East India contributing the country. But the racial discrimination of the people living in North East India remained unsolved.
The common question, are not we Indian? Are the North East people of India still regarded as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Thai? Why! Why is it so? India is well-known as the largest democracy in the world. But it is clear that there is no justice for the People from the North East in the face of Indian Democracy. The writing may be with broken English, but we are going to reveal the real situation and the truth about the point we are standing now.
Phone rang… (It was 30th January, 2014, 11:32 AM)
(I was surprised when the phone rang from my sisters at this time, because it is not her scheduled to phone calls since she used to be in the middle of class at 11:32 am round)
Ms. Zoheisa @ Zo: Hello Khams. how’re eu?
Khams Zotal@Me: Hi, dear..Zo, I am good. How about U? Yesterday, Mom’s told me that she misses you a lot….
Zo.: I’m fine too bro. But I missed home. Bro. did you heard about the incident in Delhi… a guy from Andra Pradesh being killed just because of his hair-cuts it seems.
Me: What?!!! A guy being murdered just because of his hairstyles? What the F*** I don’t think so! Or may be U got wrong information Zo. I said.
Zo.: No ya!..bro I’m serious…if you ain’t trust me, U can also ask your friends or browse the net and check your Facebook group news, I’m sure someone else may post it, ho ahead…
Me: Okay! Hold on, I’m gona check now…..
~With the socking information, I requested her to log in her Facebook account if she doesn’t mind since I am so curious to know about it, she agreed.
(As I checked out my account Facebook nonfiction, it says “Pupu Zou posted in Zolengthe”,ZomiThuthang NewsGroup posted in Zogam Daily, Bruce K Thangkhal posted in North East Helpline, and Harvey Ne posted in I Love North East India, I follow the link and came to read the shocking incident happened in the Capital of India.)
We resume the phone calls and the conversation on Facebook.
I inbox her, OMG! Zo.zo. it’s true! It seems a college students from Arunachal Pradesh being killed by some local shopkeeper after a joked with his hair-cuts.
Zo: is typing…………..
Me: just cuz of the hair-cuts “zo”? His name is “Nido”... it seems Human being is easier to kill than killing animals in today’s scenario.
Zo.: Yes, I told you no? They said his fathers’ is an MLA from AP. So sad!!! I am scared being in Delhi bro.
Zo.: I feel insecure bro. I wish I’ve choose “Shillong/ Chennai” for my studies. Now I have to be here for extra 1 and half years to complete the course I pursued.
Me: Dea…why are you so worry? Everything will be fine, Imagine! Thousands of youth from North East wants to study abroad especially in the capital Delhi, U’re so lucky that you can your carrier in a metro cities! Dn’t worry dear, it’s gona be fine, We are Indian. Focus on your studies (I said).
Zo.: Yes, I know we are Indian, but the situation doesn’t have a sense of Indian, I am serious! You don’t understand bro. Most of my classmate or our localities used to ask us which country we long. Aren’t we’re from the same country huh! (She aggressively replies me as if I am the culprit on the issues, I can feels she isn’t secure being staying in the Capital-Delhi)
…The facts is that everyone is proud to be Indian, I am proud to be Indian, I love listening Hindi song, Cuz I’m I was born in India, and I will work for the betterment for the world from India, and I LOVE MY INDIA.
…Being fond of listening to Hindi Songs, on the very conversation with my sisters’, I was listening to the songs called. “Tumko To Aana Hi Tha” a song from the recently released Film “Jai Ho”, Where my favorite Actor Salman Khan and Bollywood new actress play a role in such a way that it is very emotional to me with its unique Indian musical instrument played. I don’t know why. LOL!!
…I can honestly say I don’t know the exact meaning of the songs as I am beginner in learning Hindi language, but truly speaking I love to listen Hindi songs and it is also my National language. Jindabad!
Back to the conversation…
I replied, “We have so many goo leaders’, social activist, strong Student Union who can take up the situation and we will be in a same track, sometimes things get worse when we are closer to good things.
Zo.: No, no, no, Bro. forget about that, bla! bla! bla!, the best is, please remember me in your prayer, lets pray for the world, we will pray for the orphanages, social leaders, religious leaders, widows, women’s, Tell Mom and Dad that I beg you to remember all those in our family devotional service. I am on my way to home, the traffic is jam, I’ll catch you right back when I reach home, okay? Bye! Tc.
(She ended with such challenging words I never heard from her before)
I said, yes! Nau ( “Nau” is zou dialects to address the love and younger one) so sweet of you with your words, I Love you so much, Don’t worry, We will pray for you, and we will remember all the lists you urged us to remember in our family devotional service. And I ended the conversation with quotes “A better days wait”!
She replied with a smiley stickersJ J J
So, dear listeners and readers, we know ourselves that we are living in the largest democratic country, do we enjoy equal rights and freedom; are we still in old culture where there is a lower class and upper class? We bleed the same colour, wake-up-now!
Are we a good citizenship of the world? Do we ever think of ourselves that we a great leaders where our people are insecure in our mainland? Peoples kill, peoples dying, young girls and women’s are being raped in our society, innocent boys killed and hurts.
Do our children’s and women’s are secured in our society? Do we provide equal treatment, love and education to your boys and girls, or to our sons and daughters in the family, schools, colleges and universities? Or is this a political role in our country? Think about it,
Unless equal status is given to men and women, serious issues like rape, murder, racial discrimination will always wait in the future. Remember “We are one big family”
So, join hands today to be…
“Indian loves Indian people, Indian builds Indian, Indian promotes Indian in India and Indian works for the World”
