Addressing the gathering after the inauguration of the bridge on Tuesday, the Prime Minister referred a stanza of the Bard of the Brahmaputra Dr Bhupen Hazarika that the mighty river is a confluence of unity. He wished the people of Assam on the eve of New Year and Bhogali Bihu, besides paying tributes to great personalities of the State like Chaulung Siu ka Pha, Lachit Borphukan, Bir Chilarai and Sarbananda Singha.Terming the inauguration of the bridge as a historic occasion, the Prime Minister said that the development of the country is intrinsically dependent on the development of Assam and other states in the region.
The project will not just bring both the banks closed and promote greater integration, but will also set the stage for rapid development of the districts of Dhemaji and North Lakhimpur, apart from the southern parts of Arunachal Pradesh. By sharply reducing the travel time between the two banks, the bridge, designed on the lines of one connecting Sweden with Denmark, will bring waves of relief to the people who were hitherto wasting a lot of time, and as a corollary, increase their contribution to the state s GDP. The railway tracks, laid on its lower deck, would also spell magic, for they will dramatically cut down the distance between Arunachal Pradesh and Dibrugarh, and even between Dibrugarh and New Delhi. In addition to all that, the strategic importance of Arunachal Pradesh, given its proximity to China, would also be taken care of. Indian supplies would also reach many hinterland regions of the easternmost Himalayan state faster and cheaper, helping the people integrate with the mainland better.The places on the Southern Bank also stand to benefit from the perspective of education and healthcare, besides trade. The educational institutions of Dibrugarh already have a strong presence of students from North Lakhimpur and Dhemaji. The percentage will only grow higher now. Same can be said about the patients, who don t have to undertake an arduous journey while coming to Assam Medical College and Hospital, or any of the state of the art private nursing homes the town boasts of being home to. The districts of Tinsukia, Sivasagar, Charaideo, Majuli and Jorhat all southern bank places will also draw the people of the other side for their own individual attributes, be it historical, spiritual or commercial.

In common neurodegenerative diseases, toxic proteins build up in the brain, destroying brain cells and damaging brain regions, leading to symptoms including personality changes, memory loss and loss of control. Only around one in twenty patients has a family history, where genetic variants inherited from one or both parents contributes to disease risk. The cause of the majority of cases which are thought to affect as many as one in ten people in the developed world has remained a mystery.A team of researchers led by Professor Patrick Chinnery from the Medical Research Council (MRC) Mitochondrial Biology Unit and the Department of Clinical Neurosciences at the University of Cambridge hypothesised that clusters of brain cells containing spontaneous genetic errors could lead to the production of misfolded proteins with the potential to spread throughout the brain, eventually leading to neurodegenerative disease.
