The Dog barks but the Caravan moves on
For freedom and Independence Nagas had fought against the forced occupationists in the land of the Nagas for more than eight decades. After having conducted political dialogue with the Government of India strenuously for fifteen (15) long years by the NSCN leadership on behalf of the Nagas to clinch an honourable settlement from India. If such an agreement takes place, certainly Nagas will get respite from tortuous struggle. But when the political dialogue seemed to reach a logical conclusion, different Naga groups and individuals have raised alarms in the name of patriotism and in the name of freedom of expression. There are so many intellectuals, philosophers and journalists are throwing mud and dirts into to expected conclusion of the talks. Are these people really patriots in words and actions?? Are Nagas so wise and out spoken?? The “Freedom of Expression” can not be misinterpreted. There are many intellectuals among the NSCN ranks who know and understand the meaning of the “Freedom of Expression” we know that “Freedom of Expression” has its limits. Anything one says or writes is not “Freedom of Expression”. “Freedom of Expression” is not meant for destruction and obstruction.
But whatever may be the case, the NSCN will carry on the works and responsibilities entrusted to them by the Naga people, come what may. “The dog barks but the caravan moves on”
