ABSTRACT:
Political ambition and aspirations of students are the popular issues in democratic countries. History is replete with involvement of students in various socio- political movements and their success story have also loomed large. In numerous occasions, the students voice their concerns in socio-economic and political issues and remain vocal against myriad injustices prevalent in the society. In recent time, the decline of values, emergence of materialistic life style, rampant corruption and consumerism etc. have brought about significant changes in politics. And with this, politics has acquired a new language that stands linear opposite to the politics of the earlier era. In fact, Politics as a social service is largely replaced by politics as a power play. More often than not, such transition has ominous impact upon students’ behaviour and their articulation of political views. In Karbi Anglong district of Assam, politics is a cup of tea for many college going students and politicization of the student bodies culminated in horizontal divisions among the student community along party lines. Seemingly, this has galvanised cleavages in academic, political and ethnic life of the students. From the perspective of peace and tranquility, such polarisation sounds unpromising in an ethnically diverse region like Karbi Anglong. Needless to say, this has insidiously slim the real empowerment of the students at large. In this regard, the present paper is an attempt to study the role and aspiration of students in the realm of politics in Karbi Anglong district: A case study of Diphu.
