  1. Very appealing comment thanks for being straight forward. I believe this kind of comment eliminate misunderstanding among the existing organization. When the situation in home land is under threat by elite group’s domination and suppression one way or other the Newah people living in abroad have shown a solidarity concept for united force. It is also true that when people leave country the love to Newah heritage becomes more stronger than while living in motherland. This is the way that we seek for opportunity to gather Newah people living abroad. I must say thank you to the NEWAH blog that it is the first time the blog has used the term NRA. I like it very much it sounds more independent than the one proposed or followed by khas oriented NRNs. I think we are near to the formation of concept world Newah federation (WNF). This federation will have legitimate agenda to take to the UNO headquarter and table the case against the extinction of Newah heritage in home land by excessive domination and exploitation from govt agencies. please send in your comments.
