But I can already tell who the token voices will be had there been reps from other states as well. Can't you? Point being this is the classic pie that mainland mainstream likes on NE 🍬
There is a reason why we call the system rigged. Until our folks don't stop pandering to mainland for their approval, this type of tokenist politics is only going to lead to more appropriation and exploitation.
Stop participating in unethically drawn panels. Period.
I mean if Arunachal or Manipur or Meghalaya always means the exactly same person on every panel on everything to do with these states, something must be wrong with the participants who don't recuse themselves from such panels or refuse to play tokens.
Selling yourselves out as careerist intellectuals and academics everywhere merely based on our identities and not having used our limited access to spaces as opportunities to refine your experiences into truths that speak to power also harms your communities.

Can we have the attention of world academia pls. India is going down bad and universities are the prime targets of the current regime. If you are at any uni abroad please make sure that your institution is speaking up against crackdown of dissent & attack on academics in India.
You cannot sit your asses in international online conferences talking about rise of supremacist and fascist govts and act like it's lowbrow to translate some of that into every day practice.
If you guys really do give a rat's ass stop being complacent and complicit first.
