Amazing dust

 There is so much of everything in our land to celebrate; each year we celebrate so many occasions and festivals to showcase and promote our rich culture and identity. The abundance of grace upon our land makes us feel so special and proud especially when we venture out in other states and talk about our beautiful land or when we bring in friends and tourists from outside. With all the lipstick black topped roads being washed away by the cruel monsoon and with the coolest fork lane scratching down beautiful hills and mountains in the name of development, we now have a perfect road to travel. The green plants, the trees, the little flowers and the flowing streams by the side of our roads are no more visible to our eyes. Instead we now see dust and only dust. And people would recognise you immediately if you have walked upon the public road or if you have driven a two wheeler to the town.

The dust on our roads makes the road stretch filled with dusts and we, pedestrians no longer breathe air but dust. The air quality in our towns, especially in Dimapur is beyond the permissible limit that the concerned department does not even dare to disclose it to the public. But surprisingly, the dust is good news for pharmacists and hospitals, and for product manufacturing companies. 

The dust in desert roads may not have the equivalent to the dust in our land. And a lonely musician might soon pick up inspiration from the dust and promote his/her album in the local dailies titled- Upon the dusty land. The tourist that visits our land might forget the beautiful landscape but he/she will fondly remember the amount of dust he/she inhaled for free. The season is going to be long and fun until the muddy road comes to play the spoil sport. But, as long as you travel by your cosy car, you are likely to miss the adventure that the beautiful festival offers. So, you better take chance to experience the moment before you get too old for anything. Together, let us popularise the already popular season, attract more tourists this season and earn more revenues for ourselves and for the State Government. We never know, very soon, the Government might propose a new Festival- Festival of Dust and Mud...ehhhh!!!
