The other important offices such as, D.C’s office, PHE, PWD, School office, Banks, Bus station etc. are clustered together in one area making public transactions easy and convenient. The main market constitutes the heart of the city. It is characterised by constant movement of vehicles and people. Nearly 200 buses and over 1500 private vehicles stop at this place for tea break and snacks. Therefore, food catering and hotel industry have made much headway in the town. The town also offers excellent educational facilities.
Majority of the local people being Christians, the town also has three or four churches, belonging to different denominations. A mini-stadium capable of accommodating over five thousand people constitutes an important part of the town. One of the lacunas of my town is that it does not have a public library and a Public Reading Room. It also lacks adequate entertainment facilities, such as theatres or parks.
Since its erection as District headquarters a few years ago, the township has been progressing leaps and bounds. Every year some new office or public building has been started in the town. The town offers a lot of scope for further development.
Today, Nongpoh stands merely as roadside snack station or a bus- stop station, offering a bit of break to the numerous travellers who pass through the town. If proper night halting facilities, few sightseeing spots and adequate entertainment facilities are provided, the town can progress much more as it would offer an ideal resort for those who want to escape the scorching heat of the Assam plains.
I am proud of my town and I am happy to live in this town. It is a small township marked by liveliness, social harmony and development.
I am sure in the years to come my town would rise from its present status as a mere bus- halting station to a fine town bustling with tourism, commerce, business, industry, etc. The plain nature of the land, temperate climate of the area, and excellent travel and communication facilities available in the town offers immense possibilities for further development.
