The students of the Economics Department of Manipur University and accompanied by a few Members of the Faculty have just completed a survey of the Chouwainu Village situated at five kilometres away from Mao town in Senapati District. Mao lies on the Asian Highway Number 1 linking Manipur with the rest of India covering a distance of 105 kilometres from the State Capital of Manipur, Imphal. To express solidarity with the people of the locality for their development efforts and to appreciate the way students and Faculty were going about their business, I have driven myself up to the village. Well, move a little away from the capital city for about sixteen kilometres, there is not even a one kilometres stretch where one could drive smoothly without bothering about deep, healthy and dangerous potholes. The Asian Highway Number 1 portion from Imphal to Mao (both within Manipur) bears testimony of years of non-maintenance, non-repair and non-improvement. The condition of the so-called Asian Highway Number 1 in Manipur is just bloody and shameful; only vulgar words emerge from the lips to appreciate the condition. This is the legacy of the rule Ibobi gave the land and people of Manipur for one and a half decades. It is good that the people of Manipur have ousted his group out.

Mother’s Day Reflections

Yesterday was Mother’s Day. It was also a day the social media was rife with postings by practically everyone on nostalgic memories of their mothers, and this was expected in these days of the internet, when personal stuffs that would in the olden days have been reserved for personal and every exclusive diaries, are literally splashed and flaunted on public walls for one and all to read. Good or bad, we don’t know, but for people from a past generation that value privacy, it does come across somewhat disturbing that even personal childhood memories of motherly love should become material for another form of selfie portraiture. These are interesting times indeed.
