Atul Krishna Banik or our Atulda of Brickfield was one of the persons who had an impact on me in my childhood. He was the best student of our colony and whenever I went to him I always found him reading and his reading list was full of various topics touching all the spectrums of life. He was the first person who taught me the theory of motivation, what he did, he attached a reward system on every activity that was good, the theory was very simple ie. "If you do this, you can get this" was his mantra, in later life when I became a teacher following his footsteps I applied this theory on my students and I must say it was a great hit among my students. When he got admitted in REC Calicut in Civil Engg. I became sure about my career and was nothing else but Engineering. I still remember that when I was in class IX standard, we had essay writing and the topic was "My Ambition in Life". All my classmates used to write their ambition of becoming a doctor as our class teacher had given us notes and their he had written about the ambition of being a doctor, but I did not follow the trends and I had written the essay on my own declaring firmly that what I would want to be in my life was nothing but an engineer. Years after I cleared the entrance examination to get admitted in mechanical engg. in REC Durgapur.

When I came to know about Late Sanjay Ghose and his initiative of socio-economic uplift of the place of great cultural legacy, Majuli, I was in fact thrilled by his approach to those socio-economic issues regarding the remote rural Assam. Next comes another Sanjay, Mr. Sanjay Hazarika, the north-east expert of the times of india groups. Besides them some independent bloggers inspire me to write this blog.

When I was a child, once I had to attend the wedding ceremony in West Bengal. It was the occasion of wedding of one of my father's numerous cousin. There family was an educated family in those day. All my uncles were diploma Engineers employed as Section Engineers in Northeastern Frontier Railway and during the early 80's they were enough successful to have a large influences on their less educated relatives like us. But, what caught me most was their idea about Assam. I still remember that one of our relatives asked me whether I have seen Tigers and Elephants. At that time I could not get his meaning and the innuendos, but when I replied I didn't, he smilingly told me that as Assam is nothing but the jungles, hence, I must see the wild animals roaming outside our house. The insult was too deep to forget and it remains one of the turning points of my life.

Since then I have dreamt of a Lumding Town (my birth place) as a fully developed and industrialized urban place. Later on, when my goal has been more focused as I have chalked out a growth plan specifically suited for our region, so now the dream modified a little bit as I have taken a resolution to establish a hard-core technology based Industry in this region.

I have a desire to see a vibrant, industrialized Assam being an hot eco-tourism hub and destination. With the economic freedom people would get as a result of industrialization and modernization of agriculture. Which will in turn improve the employment for thousands for skilled, partially skilled, as well as unskilled labour force, it can achieve what Rajiv Gandhi Grameen Rozgar Yozona could not achieve, and it is nothing but total transformation of the societies of these region. For a country like India, we could not let a portion of India to be under-developed, as it would retard the acceleration of the growth of the country. Secondly, India shares a long disputed border with Powerful China, along the border of the north-eastern states, and China has already modernized the Infra-structures and Communications system. It may have a direct threat to the sovereignty of India. ©sarpyl_19th June.
