Forgotten Flood

Kishalay grew up in Shillong and was a teacher and copywriter before joining broadcast news. Half of his two decades in news, has been in conflict zones. He is former Resident Editor NDTV (North East) where he spent 17 years of his two decade long engagement with video journalism. He was also Chair, Internal Security and Senior Fellow at Institute for Defence Studies and Analyses. His debut non-fiction work is Che in Paona Bazaar: Tales of Exile and Belonging in India’s Northeast (Pan Macmillan, 2013) (though he believes the north east doesn’t exist). He was based in Calcutta, not Kolkata. Since that’s a city Mamatadi doesn’t believe exists, he now lives in Delhi and is working on his new book and writes regularly on conflict and politics.

    thanks krishalaya for sharing the pictures…assam is a agrarian state however 80% of its land are flood prone …despite having one of the most fertile land in india our farmers cannot be sure of return forcing every normal assamese villager who don’t want to be a dalal of political parties to travel out and stand as security guards of malls n industries across india..for a petty 5-8,000.
    i don’t know where is the end of this ,,, who will bring change to it and when will that happen or what will make it happen either….
