Bihar Flood v/s Assam Flood
It is really very unfortunate that Bihar has to face nature's fury in such a devastating manner and we all are sympathize with the victims. Assam has also played the role of a good samaritan by offering all possible help to the flood victims of Bihar. But the BIG question is that Assam has always faced the mighty challenge of flood year after year and hundreds of people lost their live and thousands of people are rendered homeless every year. But still it fails to draw the attention of the nation towards this disaster as if flood in Assam is some common yearly festival. But whereas, this year when nearly 50 people in Bihar lost their lives in the flood, the whole nation seem to be mourning for the tragedy and treating it as a national calamity. Just a few days ago when the Prime Minister, Mr. Manmohan Singh, toured Assam, he pulled out from visiting Nagaon and Kokrajhar owing to foul weather, but now it seems our honourable PM is so sorry for the flood victims of Bihar, that he rushed to the state irrespective foul weather and announced a relief package of Rs. 1000 crore. For the last 62 years since independence Assam has always bear the brunt of flood but it has never been treated as a National Disaster.
But we the people of Assam should not feel sorry at the biased attitude of our national leaders because we are never considered as one with the rest of the nation, we are far remote from the so called mainstream of India and Bihar is an integral part of so called mainstream India so Bihar must be attended first, Assam can wait.
