Definition of 'WE'
The third pillar is coordination and communication. It is about building the network, a process for each naamghar to keep in touch. It is the link between all the naamghars. It is not necessary that all the naamghars will agree with each other in terms of their policies or other matters. They do not need to. We need heterogeneity of thought processes and action. What is however essential is the communication and information of what every naamghar is thinking, discussing and implementing. This will lead to collective growth through inspiration, learning and motivation from each other.
A network is easier today with the Internet and other media. For instance, every naamghar can publish a minimal newsletter about their point of view with respect to various problems, trends, happenings, and solutions, which then can be publicized through the Internet and Mobile network.
There may be an argument saying 'what is the role of government structure' in taking a society or a community forward in these times of transition. I would say, Government is there to facilitate. As Mahatma Gandhi always stressed on a bottom-up model of development that starts from the smallest unit of a society, it is widely seen across the world that development comes to those communities or societies who are self sufficient from the bottom.
A meeting place needs entertainment to keep the spirits going. Srimanta Sankaradev had created such beautiful art forms like the Sattriya Dance, Bhaona etc just for that. We should perhaps discuss and include a few more entertainment options into the fold of the naamghars to include the youth and the current times.
Assamese society need to quicken their learning curve in terms of all matters. Assamese society need to develop the negligible private sector which is essential for economic development, creation of jobs and utilization of local skills and expertise. Assamese society needs to preserve its culture, language, identity and more importantly create unity in diversity. Assamese society needs to show a positive world out there to our next generations to build their confidence in taking on the world.
To do all this, lets start with the naamghar. Lets make the naamghar the smallest community unit of progress and development.
Lets us all say, Aha ami adda maru naamgharat..
