CICs and Vision 2006!!!

After much hard work, in 2001, the Governments of India
and Assam had crafted uplifting, forward-looking and
exemplary visions for each and every district in the state.
I have visited the well-maintained Web sites of several of
the 22 districts in Assam where the vision documents are
published for perusal by the citizens of the districts and
the world at large. The vision documents embody a
collection of many excellent ideas that are achievable
through good government and dedicated work over many

2nd, 2003 in his Guwahati residence, leaving behind his wife Gyanada
Dutta and three daughters. He was 74 years. People who met him once
remember him for his amicable nature and simple nature. May got rest
his soul in peace.

Thanks for sending this to all of us.

The editorial about AASU's role is great. This issue mainly consists of
articles with suggestions on what could be done for Assam. A few of
these projects are being done, some thoughtful suggestions are in.
We can all pitch in and make things better as we all want to see our
birth-place to be a prosperous one - to see our near and dear ones
back home living in peace and comfort.

Feedback

Namaskar!

The ASA newsletter posted at Assam.org. I found the newsletter to be
very interesting – we here can really come to know the minds of our
brothers & sisters in a far-away place– what they are
doing/thinking/talking about.

Of particular mention is the concern by you all about development in
Assam - in what way can you all contribute. I found the viewpoints of
all the writers are those of serious people, thinking seriously about
transforming the situations prevailing here.

Assamese Movies and the Andalusian Dog

"Beauty will be CONVULSIVE or will not be at all...I have always
been amazed at the way an ordinary observer lends so much more
credence and attaches so much more importance to waking events than
to those occurring in dreams...
Man... is above all the plaything of his memory. In the world we live in
everything militates in favor of things that have not yet happened, of
things that will never happen again."
-- Andre Breton

The three otter's birthday

There were three otters. Their names were P B & J, that's
short for Peanut, Butter and Jelly.

One day they were very excited because tomorrow was their
birthday.

Even though otter pups can live on their own, they often
continue to try to nurse, beg for food, or hitch a ride on
mom's belly. Otter's Mothers are very tolerant of large
pups—up to the point when they wean them.
