Nungthang Tampak : Manipur’s first computer-literate village

Not so long ago, being educated means knowing something as basic as reading and writing. A family with one such ‘educated’ person could easily hold sway in deciding matters of importance in any village meeting. Then, came the need for every individual to know how to read and write. Like in every other aspects of civilization, education also arrived in steps – primary, intermediate, higher secondary, college, university, etc. In this age of Information Technology and the Internet, everybody needs to be computer-literated. There is no literacy like computer-literacy.

In response to the article “We need to start male empowerment”

First and foremost I am all for gender equality and believe that every human being should get equal respect in spite of their gender, but if am not wrong, is patriarchy not about male power and superiority?? There is no denying that gender stereotyping exist in the society but to deny that the problem face by women today is not related to gender issue would be another form of discrimination. For instance on 24th July the supreme court of India denied a 10 year old rape victim permission for abortion because it would endanger her life and 32 week foetus, so the child who is to enjoy playing around with her friends at her age has to now go through pregnancy but also labour pain only to be cast away by society.
