The North-East Cell, Hindu College is a representative college society that began its functioning in 2011. The Cell was established with a vision to provide a homelike environment for the students from the North Eastern States in a friendly space where they could share their experiences and sort out their problems, if any. The Cell sets its sights on spreading awareness amongst the people, especially the College fraternity so as to amalgamate the nation with the lesser known cultures of Northeast India, a significant step towards national integration. Furthermore, any student of the college who are keen to learn and experience more about North East India may register for the cell and be a part of this big family.
Throughout its lifespan, the cell has worked to turn the spotlight on the North-East through screening of regional films, webinars discussing contemporary developments in North-East India, sessions with accomplished profiles from the North East, North East India news and updates, etc.
The cell also celebrates its annual festival “NEtym”, a multi-dimensional event to encompass the varied art and culture and history of India’s north-east, the region’s handicrafts, food, clothing, literature etc. Each year, the cell releases its very own publication, 'The North-East Indian', sharing a glimpse of what's more to this biodiversity rich region of the country. For the last one year, due to the prevailing conditions, the cell has been working on all these spheres in an online mode. It successfully organized a Virtual Mental Health Summit, Gender violence in Militarized Zones: North-East in Focus, etc.
