Kabi Nazrul Mahavidyalaya Sonamura is going to organize a National Seminar on the theme “Identities in Northeast India with special reference to Tripura” in which different parameters of identities based on dalit identity, gender identity or identities of various ethnic groups will be discussed.In Northeast India academic discussions on ‘ Identity’ is so much dominated by discussions on ethnicity. And there is a common perception among the scholars to coin the phrases ‘ identity crisis’ , ‘ethnicity’ or ‘question of identities’ whenever there is the question of ‘Identities’ in Northeast India.But in the concept of identity there remains wide scope to focus on multidimensional groups of human society.
At various tracts of Northeast India in general and Tripura in particular the role of different communities and groups (both tribal and non-tribal), the weaker sections, the dalits, the women, the religious minorities, the landless labourers, the communities known for particular business, trade, commerce, the special physical and geographical features, etc., are instrumental in influencing various parts of the region which might not have received due attention. Therefore the objective of this seminar is to go beyond ethnicity and to provide a platform to scholars to represent all Identities in contexts of ethnic identity or identities based on religion, language, culture, occupation etc., which would create atmosphere where no one would feel, isolated or ignored. With such visionary thoughts there would be mutual respect for each other, peaceful co-existence of the people professing different religions, cultures and languages. And that is the basic requirement of plural society for walking together on the path of progress.
