Why elephants never forget?

One morning all the animals were sleeping. The first animal to get up was elephant. Elephant couldn't remember very well, and this morning he couldn't remember where he put his sneakers.

When all the animals woke up they all wanted to change their looks in some way.

Leopard said, "I have spots, but I want more spots."

Camel said, I have humps' but I want more humps."

Ram said, "My horns are big, but I want bigger horns."

Turtle said, "I have a hard shell, but I want a more harder shell."

The Brahmaputra Water Resources Utilization & Concerns and a Proposal for Assam

In recent months, two very important issues concerning Assam and its people have received some media coverage in Assam. The first is India's grandiose $120,000,000,000 (one hundred & twenty billion US Dollar) plan of river-linking which involves, among other things, the diversion of Brahmaputra water near Jogighopa to be mixed with the Ganges.

Micro-finance for Development of Rural Assam

Assam was one of the most industrialized states in India in 1947 - 5th to be precise. Since independence Assam has slipped in economic growth compared to most other Indian states. In 1993-1994 Assam was ranked 13th in terms of per capita income and in 1999-2000 Assam slipped to 14th rank. In terms of yearly growth rate, Assam at present is the slowest economy amongst other Indian states at 0.78%.

How NRA can be helpful to Assam?

Assam has experienced turbulent years during the last few decades which has yet to show any respite.  However, globalization has entered this state and the government is facing financial shortfalls.  There is massive unemployment in the traditional sectors, but interestingly there is a huge shortfall of skilled manpower in the professionals sectors. But due to their own limitations and absence of acumen, colleges and universities are neither generating many skilled students nor are capable of offering proper guidance.

The Contribution of the NRA

Some time ago I read an email about the contributions of NRA towards their motherland. After reading it, it made me think about what has been done and what can be done.  In the article it was pointed out what the other NRI does towards their motherland and what the NRAs are doing.

What NRA can do for Assam?

Although it took India years, the country has finally realized that, how much NRIs can do for India, its 20 million strong overseas Indians dotting the globe who earn at least US$160 billion annually, which is more than a third of India's national income, can well change the face of its economy.
