Sample text

The caring subject constructs the object in a way that calls for such care and protection and in its turn privileges itself as a caregiver—if not the sole caregiver wielding a monopoly of caring its object. The State thereby establishes its monopoly over the power to give care. Care is thus enmeshed in power and vice versa. In the process, it quietly sends into oblivion those who do not deserve such care and repudiates the claims of rival caregivers. The spotlight never falls on those who do not seek or even have the guts of denying nation’s care.

Indeed, the wait has been too long and patience at times runs out resulting in occasional outbursts and insurgencies. Deka (2006: 199) calls it, ‘neglect syndrome’. In this feeling of ‘neglect’, there is always the overriding expectancy of care and protection. 6 Governing in Global Times: Developmentalism of the 1990s The ‘mainstream’ economic literature on India’s Northeast attributes its backwardness to what is often sarcastically called ‘the neglect theory’.

One of the fundamental changes that has taken place in the politics of settlement in the modern (Indian) State has been from ‘frontiers’ to ‘boundaries’: “… [F]rontier is an area, often a zone of transition, not only between groups but also between geographic regions, a boundary is a line drawn on the ground and on a map” (Embree 1989: 68).
