1. The dimasa peoples living in the region near Kampur is known as Hojai kachari not diamas. There should be a single/name for a particular type to reduce confusion for differentiation in selection process for higher studies, jobs etc. 2. Such kind of conferrence should always be encourage as unites the community bonding to a higher level. Moreover, on today's environment where life has become so fast, that we who have achieved certain level of status in society by virtue of our educational qualification/jobs get the change to refresh our sentiments to our tribe , and also our children get to know our root of origin. 3. This types of conferrence should be encourged in district, national and international level so that our long lost Dimasa people any where in the world come for unification and share there experience.
