Greetings from Assam,
I am very happy to inform you that Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in association with the Govt. of Assam, proposes to organise a two day event Connecting with the North East - NRI Summit 2007 on 21st and 22nd of December in Guwahati, Assam. This flag ship event will be the first and the most comprehensive event for the PIO's from the North East and will attempt to connect them and bring in their expertise and knowledge to integrate into North East's growth process.
Through this message I want to draw the kind attention of the people who are living in or outside Assam but whose heart possess a soft corner towards Assam and Assamese people that in near future we may not only lose the proud of having the world’s largest river island but we may lose MAJULI forever.
It was more than three years ago when we first heard the news of my cousin Krishna being diagnosed with leukemia. At first, we could not believe our ears. I was thinking: how could it happen to her. It took us sometime to accept the harsh truth. Later on, whenever we spoke to her over the phone, she was always calm and would speak to us with her usual soft voice and the familiar giggles as if nothing had happened. When my family visited her in January this year, I was awestruck by her determination and mental strength to live.
