The under gravity of CAB: the viable mediocrity in the final policy catharsis

 CAB has been a subject matter of numerous concerns raised by prominent scholars, politicians, international community forums and many activists. One of the serious convulsions it is popularly speculated upon is the supposed prosecution of Muslims once the focal Hindu conservatives manage to rein the bill in all wavelength of social and political arch-space. The other apprehension translate into the end of each state’s ethnic regional languages, beliefs and ceremonial practices — pivoting Hinduism at the core of every cultural system. The recent statement provided by Tokheho Yepthomi immaculate that other than the externally perceiving as a misappropriation in the apprehension, the worked on method is non contradictory to a citizen and particularly of the northeastern states regarding the infractions claimed on their ethnic rights, regional and cultural preservation. 

However, much is to be seen on whether these subliminal conundrum becomes obsolete when the Act is actively played out as regulations. CAB has been opposed primordially during its initial inception. Yepthomi has stated that necessary changes have been procured in the new stat bill and that his vote on it was the collective decision of his party. Aside from sitting this phenomena-on-thin-ice out and awaiting further breakdown on its procedure, this law for one thing has brought everyone yamming quelle surprise, considering such norms to be unmarked and officially unrecognised areas of customs by community standards. Times have been different and our flabbergasting makes a lot of sense. For the time being, let us be very perceptive of the developing issues and conflicts, setting aside petty personal and self communal gains that could lead into formats of other phenomenal unrest.

Clearly, overloading small talks into the atmosphere over this issue could cripple the common sense of reconciling and forward objectives and goals. This needs clear nit picking on its peripheral volume. The issue over documenting immigrants alone does not stir much quandary over our nascent experiments of advanced stage democracy, but the influx of phenomenal ties to hypervent a reckoning domiciles of Nagaland and other largely affected states is a call to reposition, keeping aside secondary options like mass region wide protest which already has begun to unnerve amid the minorities and other affected countrymen, it is the hour to brilliantly observe the trickle down effects and the patterns where this phenomena leads towards ultimately. An inter-state dialogue via inter-dimensional diplomacy may slavishly pivot some nuts and bolts with the original model of CAB. Bereft of internet in Assam due to the ongoing protest, haunting passerby, slips of clashes, we might just complacently be bracing for another state wide ban on communitarian technological platforms.  

Interestingly the attributes of this nationwide clamour against the CAB remains the same leaving aside the Hindu stern far rights connoisseurs. Even other conservative, liberal and progressive Hindus also are with savvy not in agreement to the adjudication of the CAB and its constitutional framework of elements. The Act however as it is, has began engulfing the headspace of every common man, and perhaps a new major outcry can bring to hindsight in advance about the potential malfeasance of the bill or at-the-least point out some plausible margins of errors either on the substance or communication that has riled up the reality grasp of Indians at large today.
