Kalpana Patowary - Northeast is a reservoir of talent but it hurts when people consider the region different from India.


REAL FACTS - KALPANA

Says Kalpana, I am from northeast, ASSAM. Northeast is a reservoir of talent but it hurts when people consider the region different from India. She feels that north-eastern India is a reservoir of talent but it has not been given due recognition because the region suffers from a sense of geographical and social alienation. She is 'hurt' that many people do not consider the northeast as a part of India. For example, in the television music talent hunt reality shows contestants from our region do well. And the nation must realise that they (participants) reach there because of their talent, not favouritism. I want the rest of the country to cherish it, but respect for the region is lacking,'Kalpana holds the local residents equally responsible. 'Talents from the region are not being recognised. To a certain extent, we (northeast residents) are also responsible for it because we don't remind them about our potential.
