Description About The Author:- Rohini Kumar Baruah Most of the authors represent a select class of luminaries reposed in the prodigious store house of intellectuals, writers, litterateurs, journalists, educationist's economists and renowned administrators. While the former members of the All India Services have inked their treasured experiences accumulated in addressing the issues they were faced with in their active service tenure, the others represent a highly scholastic and intellectual class, who has made their name and fame in the fields of literature, journalism, teaching, authoring books and writing newspaper columns. Many of them have been honoured with top national awards in their respective fields including literature, journalism, science and technology and police and general administration. The facts culled and enumerated in the book qualify to be researched materials retrieved from the work fields as they were and, therefore, can be used with advantage by the researchers, the teaching and the learning community, writers and journalists alike. The book is a collection of forty one essays written by eminent writers, literateurs, journalists, professors, educationists, intellectuals and members of the All India Services Pensioners' Forum. It traverses a wide range of subjects which reflect both the core problems and the rich natural beauty and resources of Assam and the North East India. The mystique turbulence of the mighty Brahmaputra, the magical charms of the blue hills and the red rivers with their maddening charms, the lure of the world famous onehorned rhino hideously showing up in and around its mystic abode of Kaziranga National Park, the extensive lush green tea gardens whispering the touching tales of sweat and sorrow, the sprawling fields of the liquid gold and Asia's first refinery at the picturesque town of Digboi, Majuli, the greatest river island of the world and the unique seat of the Vaisnavite culture with very many monasteries founded by Guru Sankar Mahapurusha, the incredible story of Assam being reduced to a dumping ground of millions of illegal Bangladeshi, the hub of terrorism-in short, the hidden tale of riches and poverty making strange bedmates - all take the reader to an exotic sojourn never before experienced.
