  1. Seeking justice for the victim is not the solution here! Each of us in northeast have to raise ourself in terms of thought process, professionalism,our act in the society & its impact and our responsibility towards taking country in newer heights.

    With internet available almost to each one of us, we can refer the best practices followed in developed countries across the world and imply them on ourselves.As youth we have to be the pulse of northeast and let the world know what we can achieve simply by realizing our true potential and then see the respect and fondness coming from all over India and outside world.Having said that such kind of incidence (death of Manipuri student) are shame for India and justice will take its path to correct that.To end discrimination against northeast – it is each of us who has to rise to the occasion and show the world simply by excelling in our individual endeavors!

    All the best !
