IMPHAL, May 22: The Zeliangrong Baudi (Assam, Manipur and Nagaland) has strongly deplored the division of Zeliangrong as six different tribes as Kabui, Kacha Naga, Naga, Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei and Inpui according to the Gazette issued on January 9 by the Government of India.

A release of Zeliangrong Baudi said that the original demand as “any Zeliangrong tribes including Zeme, Liangmai, Rongmei and Inpui in the lieu of Kabui and Kacha Naga” was approved by Manipur Cabinet in 1991 and 2001.

It also said that the state recommendation to the centre for declaring the mutation in lieu of misnomer Kabui and Kacha Naga was latter sabotage by some divisive forces to have caused the state and the centre to pass legislation in the parliament (Lok Sabha) as bill no 108 on December 19, 2011 recognizing six Zeliangrong tribes, which also included Kabui and Kacha Naga as a new tribe to separate the people speaking the same Mother tongue.

Further it said that the Zeliangrong Baudi along with other Zeliangrong frontal organizations shall continue the demand for further modification base on the original demand and Manipur Cabinet Resolution 1991 and 2001.

Robert Arthur “Bob” Moog (May 23, 1934 – August 21, 2005), founder of Moog Music, was an American pioneer of electronic music, best known as the inventor of the Moog synthesizer.

Bob Moog’s innovative electronic design is employed in numerous synthesizers including the Minimoog Model D, Minimoog Voyager, Little Phatty, Moog Taurus Bass Pedals, Moog Minitaur, the Animoog ios app, and the Moogerfooger line of effects pedals.

Life

A native of New York City, Moog attended the Bronx High School of Science in New York, graduating in 1952. Moog earned a bachelor’s degree in physics from Queens College, New York in 1957, another in electrical engineering from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. in engineering physics from Cornell University. Moog’s awards include honorary doctorates from Polytechnic Institute of New York University (New York City) and Lycoming College (Williamsport, Pennsylvania)

During his lifetime, Moog founded two companies for manufacturing electronic musical instruments. He also worked as a consultant and vice president for new product research at Kurzweil Music Systems from 1984 to 1988, helping to develop the Kurzweil K2000. He spent the early 1990s as a research professor of music at the University of North Carolina at Asheville.

Moog received a Grammy Trustees Award for lifetime achievement in 1970. In 2002, Moog was honored with a Special Merit/Technical Grammy Award, and an honorary doctorate degree from Berklee College of Music.

He gave an enthusiastically-received lecture at the 2004 New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME-04), held in Hamamatsu, Japan’s “City of Musical Instruments”, in June, 2004. Moog was the inspiration behind the 2004 film Moog.

Moog’s first wife was Shirleigh Moog (née Shirley May Leigh), a grammar school teacher whom he married in 1958. The couple had three daughters (Laura Moog Lanier, Michelle Moog-Koussa, Renee Moog) and one son (Matthew Moog) before their divorce. Moog was married to his second wife Ileana Grams, a philosophy professor, for nine years until his death. Moog’s stepdaughter, Miranda Richmond, is Grams’s daughter from a previous marriage. Moog also had five grandchildren.

Moog was diagnosed with a glioblastoma multiforme brain tumor on April 28, 2005. Nearly four months later, he died at the age of 71 in Asheville, North Carolina on August 21, 2005. The Bob Moog Foundation was created as a memorial, with the aim of continuing his life’s work of developing electronic music.
