Post Mortem

Did India hear or see the silence that descended upon Nagaland on February 11

Everybody knows that the ear is for hearing and the eye is for seeing. But strangely enough, both these senses even have the ability to hear and see silence whenever it appears in any landscape. And still stranger is the sinister fact that silence is often louder then sound! My question to India in this context is whether the Government of India noticed or heard the silence that descended over all the territories of Nagaland on Feb. 11, 2019. This silent protest was launched by all Nagas in protest to the Constitution Amendment Bill and the delay in bringing a solution to the Indo-Naga conflict. Life in Nagaland indeed came to a silent standstill on Feb.11, 2019. Ever since 15th Aug. 1947, Nagaland and its people have been compelled to live under the political lie that Nagas are Indians and Nagaland is Indian Territory. Nagas did give a very befitting reply to India on this fictitious lie from 1954 to the present. In the past 65 years, a lot of noise and din was raised as thousands upon thousands from both sides were killed in the conflict. However, for the first time in the Indo-Naga conflict, the Naga people staged a silent protest against India on Feb. 11, 2019  for its illegal occupation of Nagaland. The question is: Did India see or hear Nagaland’s silent protest? If India has failed to either see or hear the silence of Nagaland, India must be both deaf as well as blind.
