Remember the recent case of a Manipuri student getting spat on in Delhi ? That disturbed me to the core. But then the stories I've heard from my high school classmates are even more disturbing. Some of my old friends got admission in various NITs/IITs in NE, outside Tripura of course. They used to tell me stories of harassment from various missionary groups(mostly Garo and Khashi often Naga). They were Bengali all of them, that might have escalated the attacks. We are talking every kind of harassment from physical beating to peeing outside your door at al. The girls were harassed differently, spreading rumours about them, anonymous phone calls/texts in the middle of the night et al. Nothing physical but psychological. The only friend who never complained of any harassment was studying medical(dental) in Assam.
