Emotions ran high as nearly 1,500 students from the strife-torn Manipur returned to their home states (other Northeastern States) safe and sound. Some had tears of happiness, some heaved a sigh of relief while some could not stop but smile, some still in total disbelief that they are out of danger, safely back home.

Besides the students, many workers and residents of Sikkim, Assam, Nagaland, Mizoram, Meghalaya and Tripura have also returned home safe with the help of their respective state governments, students organistions and efforts of certain individuals.
