The Letter Of This 12 Year Old Assam Girl To PM Modi Is Going Viral! Here’s What She Requested!


The Letter Of This 12 Year Old Assam Girl To PM Modi Is Going Viral! Here’s What She Requested!

It is very disheartening that several people still don’t have any awareness about northeast India; yes, hardly anyone knows about the geography, the people, the history and the culture of that place. Many a times we see that social media is filled with videos or news about northeast, but majority of are them show the place in wrong light.

Northeast people are treated as part of China and not India, which is why they have to fall prey to brutal attacks and discrimination. Of late, many NGOs have taken the initiative to settle things and make people positive about northeastern states.

Amidst this, a 12 year old girl from Assam has come forward to spread some awareness; at a age when children play and enjoy, this girl Aaira Goswami has written a letter to PM Modi. In this letter, she has requested him to add the history of northeast.

If you are not aware, let us tell you that history textbooks don’t have any mention of the northeast; Aaira appeals to PM Modi to add the glorious history of her state Assam and northeast, so that people come to know more about it.

The 12 year old girl says that she loves to study history, but unfortunately, she has no clue about her state’s past. Here’s the letter…

It reads

Shri Narendra Modiji
The Honourable Prime Minister of India

11th Feb 2017

Honourable Prime Minister of India,

My name is Aaira Goswami. I am 12 years old. I am from Assam. I currently stay in Jaipur. I study in Neerja Modi School. Today I wanted to tell you about something that I have been thinking about for quite a while. My favourite subject is history, unlike other students. Yet I don’t know the history of my own state! I know a lot about the Mauryans, the Mughals and the Guptas. I have even written exams on these emperors. But I know very little about Lachit Borphukon and the Ahoms who ruled Assam for 600 years defeating the Mughals 17 times soundly in battle. I know the history of almost whole of India; from Jammu & Kashmir to Tamil Nadu, from Mughals to the British, from Rajasthan to Kolkata. But where is the long lost glory of the seven sisters. Some students don’t even know what the seven sisters are. It is very difficult to find things about the Northeast in my books. If I could just read about my state, Assam, and Northeast in my book it would be like a dream come true. Besides all Indian children need to know Assam and the Northeast’s glorious history. If you could do something to ensure that Assam and the Northeast’s history is included in our books and also reply to this letter from a little Indian citizen, I would be very thankful.

Yours sincerely
Aaira Goswami
Neerja Modi School
Jaipur, Rajasthan
