Over four months have passed since violence broke out in the Bodoland Territorial Area District (BTAD) on July 21, 2012. TCN visited Guwahati, the capital of Assam, Kokrajhar, headquarter of the BTAD, the Gosaigaon subdivision –referred by many as ‘tinderbox,’ one of the most affected region to see the ground realities.
We bring stories of violence, desperation, and also hope from this “tinderbox.” This series has been made possible with financial support from Indian Muslim Relief Committee (IMRC).
