If there is one thing that you either watch or read today, let it be this.

Twelve-year-old Aaira Goswami from Assam has written a letter and posted a video, requesting Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ensure that the history of the Northeast is included in school textbooks all over the country. "Where is the long lost glory of the Seven Sisters? Some students don't even know what the Seven Sisters are," writes Goswami.

"I know a lot about the Mauryans, the Mughals and the Guptas. I have even written exams on these emperors. I know very little about Lachit Borphukon and the Ahoms who ruled Assam for 600 years defeating the Mughals 17 times soundly in battle," she writes.
