Nagaland surely is among the most corrupt places in India. The usual politicians and bureaucrats merrily looting at will. These are people with no conscience. I have sat down with some Naga politicians and interacted with them and it is sad because after brief interactions I have realized that these are people with no vision and no responsibility towards our people.
I’ve met quite a lot of bureaucrats, most are well educated but then soon you realize the greed in their hearts. It is sad, really sad.
In the time of World War I (1914–18), the British Government recruited a number of labourers and porters from the Naga tribes. As part of the labor corps, around 2000 Nagas and many more from North east led by RS Ruichumhao were sent to France, where, alienated from the other British Indian troops, they developed a sense of unity. They agreed that after returning to their homeland, they will work towards unity and friendship among the various Naga tribes. These Nagas under RS Ruichumhao leadership come together with the British officials, formed the Naga Club in 1918. Mr. R.S. Ruichumhao was one of the few who can speak English and translate to fellow Naga about the ideas of the important of forming Naga Club. No doubt he is one of the visionary leaders who contribute the ideas of forming the Naga Club. However, His name was excluded in the signing of memorandum to Simon Commission because his interest has turn toward spreading of Gospel in Nagalim.
