People gathering before the meeting at Noida
New Delhi: With the Grand Biju Mela just two months away, Arunachal Pradesh Chakma Students Union is exploring numbers of ways to collect funds to make it a success. In a meeting held recently in Noida, APCSU Chief General Secretary, Prahlad Chakma informed all its supporters and members that the Bizu Mela is the threshold for a greater movement in Arunachal Pradesh for the Chakma Community. He said that the Bizu Mela is not just a celebration of a new year but a chance for us to showcase and express our 50 years long suffering and misery. It’s a point where we can unite and awake all our people to our strength, hence, it is very important for everyone to contribute as much amount as they are capable of for the big event.
He also thanks the entire Chakma community in Noida who has been consistent in paying the monthly subscription fees since one year. And their sincere monetarily assistant have made APCSU run its office in Arunachal Pradesh successfully. Gyanomoni Chakma and Probin Ranjan Chakma, the Director and the pPresident of Noida Chakma youth Association respectively have agreed to continue its support for APCSU and for the Bizu Mela. More than 300 Chakmas reside in Noida and half of them stay with their family.
Ranjan Chakma, President of APCSU updated everyone that right after the Bizu Mela, the union would hold a general meeting with all the Chakmas where they would invite the Citizenship Right Committee of Chakma and Hazong of Arunachal Pradesh (CCRCHAP), Chakma intellectuals, Women representatives and all the Headmen to discuss the possible reformation of CCRCHAP and re-election of its members if needed and agreed by the majority. He hold the view that Chakma intellectuals currently working and studying in different parts of the country would come and attend the Mela and therefore it would be easy to hold conferences during the Bizu Mela along with them to discuss and decide what best could to be done to solve the citizenship issue of the Chakma permanently. He also said along the line of Prahlad that Bizu Mela is not just a celebration but a Hizek (Scream).
In the next month, he along with Punya Chakma, Chief Adviser of APCSU would go to Kolkata to recreate APCSU Unit there and to collect funds for the Mela. At the beginning of this month they have met with Rakesh Chakma, a hard core supporter of APCSU presently staying in Nagpur. Rakesh would form the APCSU Nagpur in the coming month.
The Bizu Mela will take place on 13-15th April 2014 at Jyostnapur Ground, Diyun Tinali. The Arunachal State Bizu Mela Central committee may invite several dignitaries from the State as well as from the Central Govt.

DIYUN: An air of anticipation pregnant with excitement fills the very atmosphere of the Chakma inhabited areas in Arunachal Pradesh. Thousands of Chakma people are all but gearing up for the upcoming Bizu Mela slated to be commenced in mid April, 2013. In an attempt to make the celebratory event a historical first of its kind, several delegates who comprise the Tripura Bizu Mela Central Committee have arrived in Arunachal Pradesh on October 10, 2013. The visiting committee comprises of prominent cultural aficionados including Aniruddha Chakma (Asst. Gen. Secretary), Mr. Arun Kanti Chakma (Cultural Secretary) and Mr. Sukbilash Chakma (Games and Sports Secretary).
The aforementioned members of the committee have been playing crucial roles for long past in the preservation and promotion of culture, traditions and the history of the Chakma people; their work has mostly been prominently successful across Tripura though. It is also being planned to constitute a separate body – to be christened Arunachal State Bizu Mela Committee – on October 15, 2013 in order to provide a much-needed impetus towards the realization of the goal of making the grand Bizu Mela, which holds the promise of rewriting the history of the Chakma community in Arunachal Pradesh, a grand success.
It is hoped that the plethora of subtle beauty and inherently fascinating aspects about the Chakma culture and tradition would be on generous display during the interlude across which this much anticipated event is scheduled to pan out. The taste and flavor of ‘Pajjon Ton’ (a mixed vegetable based dished) especially prepared during the Bizu festival is perhaps duly expected to add to the cheerful atmosphere, which according to many, is surely going be the signature attribute of the grand occasion.
All in all the people are keeping an optimistic view about the much talked about celebrations, come April 2014 even as many are hopeful about this grand event leaving a significant impact in terms of coming together of the Chakma people, besides fostering unity as well as giving out the message of peaceful co-existence to the other communities of Arunachal Pradesh. Apparently, it is no surprise when many are heard to have confessed that they have already began the countdown to the Grand Bizu Mela 2014.

A proposal to hold a Bizu Festival in 2014 at Diyun is placed. In the meantime, the point is discussed during several meetings in Diyun. The idea was not only to recollect the 50 years of Boor Porongy Chakmas in Arunachal but also to turn around for a positive approach of progress in all respects. It is also to mark for better and peaceful living during this transitional trek of time.
The naming of the festival may be 'Bizu Mela-2014' or 'Solidarity For Peace Festival-14' or 'Bihu for Brotherhood-2014'. However, the theme is Solidarity for peace and development. More ideas are welcome in this matter.
Some said the proposed 'Bizu Festival' is to mark the 50 years of Boor Porong (The Great Migration/Exodus) in 1964. After 50 years apparently 80% of the total Chakma population presence in the state is Indian by birth. So, the term 'REFUGEE' used by medias is unfair for the Chakmas.
The Chakmas were welcomed and settled as migrant to this land of diversity and natural beauty. Since then this population of tremendous work force has been contributing to the region as well as the country.
It is to be mentioned that in 2006 a grand Bizu Festival was organised by BOC (Bizu Organising Committee) where a group 45 artists participated from Tripura. The gathering was a remarkable one from entertainment, educational and relation building point of view.
A number artists from Assam, Mizoram, Tripura are expected to take part in 2014 Bizu Festival with their own inspiration. A number of American/European friends expressed to take part.
The following points were also discussed in various meetings.
§ An audio cassette of 8 songs be recorded.
§ A souvenir (magazine) be published.
§ A short video film on anti-drugs and education awareness be taped (depends on availability of written drama in Akhamia).
§ Inauguration of the event by a cabinet minister.
§ Invitation to state ministers, VIPs, local community leaders and celebrities.
§ Invitation to the Chakma Chief Raja Devasish Roy as elected member from Asia region to The United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.
§ Invitation to CEM of CADC and a group of artists from Mizoram, Tripura and Assam.
Following proposals were raised
1. The audio cassette consisting of various local community songs be recorded with the sponsorship from employees of Arunachal.
2. The fund for the magazine be raised by one of our engineer in Tripura.
3. A friendly team of State Level Bizu Mela Committee from Tripura will visit Diyun during Durga Puja (10-14 Oct. 2013) to exchange more positive ideas toward the success of the proposal. Formal information will be communicated.
Progress already made.
§ Two rounds of discussion already made in Diyun.
§ A number of organizations and GBs attended and expressed positively.
§ Well wishers from Tripura are ready to support.
§ CADC and Chakma Chief's aid are informed informally.
§ Couple of songs already collected by REGA.
§ For collecting articles, poems... etc for magazine Email: email@example.com is ready/aacsu or cca or some more org's email be included.
§ For songs Email: firstname.lastname@example.org is ready.
Everything is dependent on the people at ground level. Youth and students are the crucial force for achievement and for coordinating all round preparation BOC will be accountable.

Proceeding of the meeting
A meeting of Chakma employees from Arunachal and intellectuals of Tripura State is held on 09-08-2013, at little follower school, Pecharthal. The meeting was presided over by Dangu Raj Kumar Chakma, President Pecharthal Changma Samajik Panchayet, Chagala Panchayet. The main agendas are as below:
1. To organise Bizu Mela in Arunachal to commemorate the Bor Porong of its 50th years.
2. To form Arunachal Bizu Mela Bhaledi Jodha in this regard.
First of all Arun Kanti Chakma explained the historical importance of the Bizu Mela in Tripura to unite the whole Chakma community in the state. Bizu is the only one event/festival that can gather/unite all Chakmas around the state. The Chakmas around the globe can also gather during this yearly festive gathering. Every year the people from Chadigang Hill Tracts, Mizoram attend the Bizu Mela in Tripura. The people of Tripura are also attending to Bangladesh and Arunachal on this Bizu Day. In the year 2006, a group of 45 cultural activists/youths from Tripura attended to Diyun Bizu Mela. So, the significance of Bizu is unavoidable. We can also relate the pain of Chakmas in Arunachal Pradesh through the Bizu gathering.
Aniruddha Chakma gave importance to invite community leaders from Mizoram, Chadigang Hill Tracts, CADC, Tripura. To organise the a grand Bizu Mela at Diyun, Arunachal the fellow people can extend help. Already a considerable communication is made with Mizoram and Bangladesh Chakma leaders. All are agreed to extend cooperation and feel the responsibility to visit the felllows of Bor Porong. He proposed a team should visit Arunachal in September/October, 2013. He also strongly hopeful to publish a souvenir on the occasion of 50 years of the great exodus in 64 and Bizu Mela at Diyun in Arunachal, 2014.
Dr. Shirsendu Chakma originally from Arunachal expressed the significance of Bizu. At the same time pointed out the possible politicisation of Chakma issue in all cases. So, every possibility of opposition must be taken into consideration to make a success of the proposal.
