NAGA PEAGE TALK STILL A LONG WAY TO GO

Even as Naga peace talks have reached a stalemate- the Govt. is trying to convince NSCN (IM) to sign the pact. It has been over five years since the framework agreement for the peace process was signed with the NSCN-IM by the Union Government, and it was a defining moment as it was widely believed that the path to lasting peace is round the corner.

Land of the Dawn-Lit Mountains

ON AN UNSEASONABLY WARM October morning in Delhi that made me pine for the jungle encrusted hills of the northeast, I received a Facebook message from a British journalist and travel writer, Antonia Bolingbroke-Kent. Antonia was planning to travel through Nagaland and wanted to make a stop at the Tzu Valley, where I worked with local communities on a conservation project. I was intrigued when she mentioned she had written a book on her motorbike journey through Arunachal Pradesh—a land lately forgotten by the outside world, still bewilderingly wild and peopled by tribes with fascinating cultural and folkloric traditions, beliefs, and practices. Whose origins remain shrouded in mystery.

The Naga peace talks, after going past the October 31, 2019 deadline set by the Government, has recently witnessed renewed efforts to clinch the final deal on the accord signed between the Naga rebels and GOI on 3rd August 2018. Amid talks of finalising the agreement, the NSCN IM in a scathing attack to the interlocutor Mr. N Ravi, had released a Press Statement, accusing N. Ravi, who is also the Governor of Nagaland, of branding the Naga issue as just a ‘law and order' issue, among others.

A SHARP BITE

On July 3, Nagaland chief secretary Temjen Toy tweeted that the state government has decided to ban import and trading of dogs and the sale of dog meat, both cooked and uncooked. In the message he tagged Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio and Maneka Gandhi, Member of Parliament and founder of non-profit People for Animals. A day later, the government issued a notification, which says violations will attract punishments under sections 428 and 429 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, which deal with “mischief” against animals and the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals Act, 1960. Though Nagaland does not have a formal dog meat industry, certain Naga tribes consume it for nutrition. The ban might look logical to the outsider, but the Nagas believe it infringes on their cultural freedom and will lead to stigmatisation and further alienation. Small wonder, when ISHAN KUKRETI spoke with several organisations and individuals across Nagaland, he found many opposers but hardly any supporters of the ban
