Looming Social Dementia

Periodic news report that the psychiatry wards in the hospitals in Manipur are showing a… more »

Periodic news report that the psychiatry wards in the hospitals in Manipur are showing a general upswing of cases should be enough to ring the alarm bells for everybody, in particular the government. Surely there is every reason to believe that this has greatly to do with the inevitable breakdown of institutions, traditional and modern, consequent upon the prolonged state of mindless violence and spiralling lawlessness the people are exposed to. We even suspect that the conditions for dementia everybody has come to be subjected to have taken a much wider toll. This may be a little beyond the scope of journalists, constrained constantly by the pressures of extremely short deadlines, and work volume in the case of the provincial media which are generally not staffed or moneyed enough to spare reporters or sponsor researches that may take months, but definitely a meaningful pursuit for academics and academic NGOs to establish a correlation between the rising cases of psychiatric cases and the uncertain and unsafe social environment in the state. There perhaps is also a correlation between this chaotic and intimidating state of affairs and the rising cases of stress related disorders, such as hypertension, migraine, stomach ulcers etc. In all likelihood, the perennial state of mayhem, overbearing decrees and threats of physical injury and elimination are cumulatively becoming a cause for chronic and extremely alarming health issues.

Come to think of it, what would be a day in the life of an average man or woman or even child in the state like? From dawn to dusk, information which get registered in their consciousness are those of violence, tragic aftermaths of murderous aggressions, faces of laments and protests, threats and diktats. They literally go to sleep with news and images of kidnaps, abductions and bloody encounters on the local cable TV channel, and then wake up the next morning to be greeted by pictures and news of blood, gore and deaths, staring back at them from the pages of their morning newspapers. All these are over and above the myriad, normal and awesome challenges of life everybody everywhere has to face. So average parents of school-going children for instance have not only to fight the clock to pack off their children to school in time and in order, but also desperately scan the pages of the local newspapers to find out whether the day is clear of any bandh or blockade call, lest their children get caught in senseless trouble and danger. Not just adults and government officers, children also get kidnapped. Sometimes they are sexually abused and murdered these days. Almost as if by rule, so many meet violent deaths almost on a daily basis, for reasons that seldom become open. Frustratingly, the culprits also most of the time are unofficially known to everybody, but officially ignored totally.

Twenty years ago, such crimes would have elicited the bewildered response from anybody that these are unthinkable and impossible in Manipur. Today even the most naive and trusting grandmothers would accept these as Manipur’s beastly new reality. Once upon a time, the moderating influences of a belief in a benign divine order, as well as those of a deeply institutionalised traditional value system was strong. Back then, it did not always take the law to convince people the basics of what are wrong and right, or what are acceptable behaviours and what are not. Law keeping then was not so impossibly arduous. The venerated space in society that elders once enjoyed, the respect reserved for women and the universal protective instinct for children, have all waned away. It is not just the law which has been turned on its head, but the intuitive values built over aeons as well. Something went wrong somewhere down the line and there was nobody to arrest the trend. A lot of it probably had to do with the wayward ways of those in charge of the establishment. Official corruption must have been the first blow to shake up faith in social values painstakingly nurtured over generations. The law too soon was to lose its moral authority over the people, leading them to take it into their own hands. There was also, in certain quarters, an intellectual eagerness to destroy established institutions on the pretext that they were degenerate, before new ones were built. The fact sheet at this moment shows values of traditional and instinctual jurisprudence, as well as the moral hold of legal institutions of the establishment, have been effectively decimated, but their replacements are stillborn. If not, they are overbearingly authoritarian, undemocratic, hate-driven and obdurately hegemonic.

Celebrate The Meaningful Christmas

Pastor, LFD & Sports Resource Center

‘If you haven’t discovered something you are willing to die for, then you haven’t yet found anything worth living for’ Revelation 3:2-3.

Another year of Christmas is at hand, while the secular worlds are into hefty business in the name of Christmas. Christians will spend all they have to shop, decorate homes, buying cakes, cards and gifts for others in the name of Merry making Christmas. Whatsoever, it is only for seasonal and then it’ll be gone. But have you ever thought about the divine purpose of life? Have you ever thought about the significance of Jesus birth for your life and others close to you?

In life, we almost and always consider important on the things money can buy, and neglect on the spiritual thing which money cannot buy? I would suggest Christmas is the right time to search your heart, just as the wise men and the shepherds who search and find Jesus. They were filled with joy to find baby Jesus in the manger. Christmas is the spiritual celebrations we must celebrate Jesus by renewing our hearts and mind to fulfill the purpose of Jesus birth in our life!

I have been observing Christmas celebration since my childhood, but it is more like celebrating the day i.e. 25th Dec. without celebrating Jesus at all. We’re doing the same thing every year like a traditional program rather then celebrating the divine Son of God. I am referring to the applications of the word ‘Gospel or Good News’ in our world today.

The Good News (Jesus) is not meant to keep in us alone but pass it on to others and to do that Christmas is the right season to bring souls to Jesus. The Gospel has no meaning, no purpose and no power unless we bring it in our heart first (be born again) before telling to others. How will you give to others what you haven’t got for yourself first?

As our spiritual celebration, in everything we do it can’t be done without Jesus because it is His birthday. Jesus will be happy if you can bring souls on His birthday. It is men’s duty to proclaim Jesus and it is God’s business to bring conviction to the hearts of people. Have you done your part yet? ‘Every heart with Jesus is missionary and every heart without Jesus is the mission field’. If you cannot tell others about Christ tell Christ about others and you’ll soon tell others about Jesus.

God gave man the power to create creativity for the sake of His purpose. It is sin if we didn’t utilize what God had given to us and make life more meaningful! In Luke 5: 18-20, we know the story of some friends how they create means to meet Jesus from the roof top, “Some men arrived carrying a paraplegic on a stretcher. Out of desperation and bold belief, they create opportunity out of no way from the roof top right in front of Jesus. Jesus was so impressed, and He said, friend I forgive your sins”. Discover the purpose and the meaning of Christmas so that, the ‘Great Joy’ of Christmas enters your family first before telling to others!

GIVE YOUR HEART & LIFE TO JESUS
‘Can you give your heart and your life to Jesus this Christmas?

Christmas: God born on earth. Christmas: God born into your own life. “Jesus’ special place and favorite gifts are your heart and your life”! Once, your life is given you are now prepared to celebrate a ‘Meaningful Christmas’. God sent Jesus to redeem your life. You must tell the ‘Good News’ to others to believe in Jesus. Then after, they too can tell others! “Christ in You” is now “Christ in Others” Heb. 10:24.

* A boy wanted to be with his Papa. But busy Pa gave chocolates, not his time. The boy stood quite besides the door. Pa gave money and sent his staff along with his son to buy anything his boy wants. But the boy come back again and stood at the same place. Pa asked him what else he need. The boy said “Pa, I want nothing, I just want to be with you.” Pa was so touched with his son’s longing ness.

The character of the boy simply reflects God’s character of love relationship, while the father’s character tells about men trying to love God by their wealth alone.

GIVE CHRISTMAS GIFTS TO OTHERS
‘Pure and undefiled religion before our God and the Father is this; to visit orphans and widows in their trouble and to keep oneself unspotted from the world’ James 1: 27.

Christmas is the birthday of Jesus. If you see in the eyes of God, you’ll find people (poor, needy, sick, and orphans etc.) their need is your attention. Whatsoever it is, when you give gifts it will be a ‘Christmas joy’ for them. Jesus will be happy to make somebody smile on His birthday!

* Tale of a Richman; one day a poor old man went to beg at the rich man’s house, but the rich man said ‘no money’. The beggar again asked for any old warm cloths, but no cloths. Then any leftover food, no food either. The beggar can’t believe to notice such a selfish rich man having no money, no cloths and not even food. The beggar asks if you have nothing to offer me, please come with me together we can beg. There are many rich people who live nothing more than the beggars.

“Why people didn’t give? Because they didn’t have. Why they didn’t have? Because they didn’t give” (repeat thrice)!

God gave you health, wealth, position and families etc. In return, can you be a blessing this Christmas? Let’s remind ourselves that “Jesus never keeps a thing of this physical world because it is useless when you leave sooner or later” But why men fights to gain what they cannot keep!

Jesus teaches us that money invested in helping others is the best investment ever. It’s like storing heavenly treasures. If you want to keep or waste your money and not willing to help others, fine! However, remember that you’ll also reap the consequences.

WHAT & WHO TO GIVE
As you give, never forget the principles of biblical giving: “You shouldn’t expect back when giving. And also, never forget to include the Good News of Great Joy in your giving”. Let us not give Christmas gifts or cakes only to rich people so that, they may give in return. There are many desperate (needy) people, who can’t afford to have what they need. “Give to others what they need, not what they want”! We shouldn’t make mistakes who to give and what to give?

The Christmas-cake which is commonly given to the non-Christians must be given with its meaning. We give out of Christmas joy and to be joyful is because of the Good News of Jesus who came to save the sinners. Can you include the ‘Good News of Jesus’ with your gifts this Christmas, especially to unbelievers?

If you are ashamed to include the good news, remember that you’re yet to know the true meaning of Christmas!!

Wishing all readers to celebrate a meaningful Christmas in the Spirit, filled with joy and happiness from above! Have a Blessed Merry Christmas!! Ring & Thamsing, the Authors!

How did the African Apes change into Meitei Features?

By: Dr Irengbam Mohendra singh

Robertson Chongtham writes: “I find all your articles quite informative and interesting … I also find your article on Origin of Meiteis quite informative though confusing because of contradictions… I appreciate on your contribution to enlighten young minds even though you are seven seas apart from Manipur and I hope all your hard works get paid off.”

Thanks Robertson. The Meitei origin is contradictory. That means no body knows the truth.
My article is also just a hypothesis albeit; nearer to the truth as it is based on scientific methods of rational thought.

A scientific method is the process of proposing a hypothesis, and then testing its accuracy by collecting data on events the hypothesis predicts.

Every article I write in the Sangai Express is available on the internet all over the world, and I have to be fact orientated.

OUR COUSIN APES still live in Africa. Very few science-oriented people will now disagree that early human ancestors (hominids) separated from apes. That is, men (Homo sapiens) share a common ancestry with modern African apes like gorillas and chimpanzees. A combination of fossil records and DNA ‘fingerprints’, is there for you to see.

There are fossils (though no genetic fingerprints) that can tell us, if not the exact date, when early humans split from the apes in the African Rift Valley region – a very rich source of fossils that allow study of human evolution

Though we share 98.6 per cent of our DNA with chimpanzees (with gorilla 75%) there are still many differences outwardly between humans and chimpanzees. These changes in the DNA and superficial appearances have accumulated through mutations over the millennia.

As the human brain grew bigger it acquired more intelligence and that brain size correlates with intelligence, though not always. Many women are more intelligent than men though their brain size is about 100g less (equivalent to a tea spoonful) than men (1,134g). The brain has now reached its evolutionary maturity.

We know that the Meitei have no fossil evidence of having arrived from the so called Tibeto-Burman regions, nor have any genetically proven evidence.

The Meitei language is not Tibeto-Burman (as was considered by Grierson). The world’s top linguistic authorities do not know its exact family position at the moment and it remains unclassified in the phylogenetic tree of evolutionary taxonomy.

The Meitei however, have empirical and some genetic evidence that during the human ancestral expansion from west India to East Asia, through the Northeast India, the Meitei ancestors separated and settled in Manipur, as the Australoid Khasi (genetically proven) did in Meghalaya.

The hypothesis is reinforced by the finding of Palaeolithic and Neolithic tools and artefacts in the surrounding hill caves and open areas in the plains of Manipur, which point to the arrival of Meitei ancestors from Northeast Africa.

(2)
The Meitei race, and their language though developed regionally during their evolution, are now and have been for a few thousand years, a fusion of proto-Australoid, Negrito, Sino-
Tibeto-Burman, Aryan and Dravidian races.

When I went to college in Bombay, doing Inter Science, I was captivated when the Professor of zoology drew a big diagram of an earthworm on the black board. Its internal anatomy and
physiology are quite similar to those of a human being, except that it has male and female organs (hermaphrodite).

Human beings are not special creations though we have many things that mark us out. We are simply a species of African ape that have serendipitously evolved, survived and expanded.

Scientists have made studies by DNA analysis of ‘archaic humans’ known as Homo neanderthal who populated Europe and parts of the Near East (Israel, Saudi Arabia); and Homo erectus who settled in parts of East Asia. In due course they became extinct.

In the 1960’s and 1970’s, 14 human remains were discovered in a cave near Nazareth in Israel, showing the earliest evidence anywhere of modern human burial about 50,000 years ago.

During a severe draught, 4 million years ago, in which Africa’s forest diminished further (a similar draught 5 million years ago), a species called Homo habilis (handy man) emerged. They were the first ancestors who were able to make tools. It retained its ape-like body form.

They began to eat meat as fruits were scarce. Meat eating allowed smaller gut to grow bigger and provided extra nutrition to develop a bigger brain. The brain requires high quality nutrition that meat but not vegetarian food can provide.

The first Homo sapiens came out of Africa and dispersed across the world 50,000 years ago, at a time when the northern latitudes of Europe and Asia were covered by sheets of ice (Pleistocene Age).

Following the ‘Out Of Africa model’ of human expansion, which is accepted by the majority of scientists, there is genetic evidence that the descendants of those, fewer than one thousand ancestors, spread out on foot all over the world.

From Northeast Africa they crossed the Red Sea to Israel, Arabia and travelled until they reached India where they split into two groups, each going separate ways.

One group expanded along the coastlines of southern Asia until they reached Australia, New Guinea and Tasmania (a single land mass) some 46 thousand years ago.

The other walked across India and through Manipur to the East. And when they reached Europe they slowly evicted the Neanderthals. They even walked across the Bering Straits from Siberia to Alaska and all the way down to South America and settled (present Native Americans).

‘Modern humans’ in the past 20,000 years since their ancestors left Africa had occupied most of the world and were dependant on hunting and gathering food for their existence.

The evolutionary changes continued due to many environmental factors. The ‘anatomically modern humans’ were bereft of modern human behaviour and lacked the faculty of speech.

(3)
Human evolution is characterised by a number of changes such as morphological, developmental, physiological and behavioural, which have taken place since the split
between the human ancestors and the chimpanzees.

The study of recent human genome has enabled geneticists to trace the journey of the first emigrants from Africa by studying the male-producing Y chromosome and the maternal mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of the human population.

The lineage M is of particular interest in tracking the exodus of humans from Africa to India and Manipur.

The genes change in human evolution. Genes are strings of DNA molecules that embody the information to make proteins. Proteins are working parts of the living cell. Each gene comes in a variety of different versions known as “alleles” that pass at random onto the next generation and the next and so on until it becomes ‘fixed’ or ‘universal’.

When that happens the population is said to have gone through evolutionary change. Thus evolution is the change in allele frequency over time in a population of organisms.

Everyone carries about half of their father’s genes and half of their mother’s. The other halves are discarded along with the genes they contain.

All genes look alike but differ only in their effects on the embryo in the future generations. A “phenotype” is a term used to the effect of a modified gene for instance; the green eyes, pale skin, brown hair or snubbed nose,

The existence of different human races such as Negroid, Mongoloid and Caucasian is more phenotypic evidence of evolution due to genetic differentiation as a result of several harsh environments.

It is believed that our ancestors who reached Europe about 45,000 years ago would have retained their black skin and other African features.

Recent finding of a jaw bone in a Devon cave, south England and its carbon dating showed that it was between 40.000 and 44,000 years old.

During the Last Ice Age, about 20,000 years ago, a shift to a more European phenotype had occurred (Holiday 1997). Later changes occurred by about 11,000 years ago to European skin colour, eye colour, and hair colour through allelic changes.

Meitei developed the Mongoloid features as phenotypic evidence of evolution due to cold.

There is no definite evidence for the Mongoloid anatomical change in the Natural Selection theory. The current hypothesis is that the evolution to the Mongoloids emerged by genetic ‘drift.’ It means a random fluctuation in gene frequencies that occur between generations. It is a revolutionary change rather than evolutionary.

Biologists have long theorised that the Mongoloid features occurred during the end of the Last Glacial Maximum as an adaptation to the cold, 20,000 years ago, while the Mongoloid
skull would have developed by chance alone. The pale skin, the epicanthic folds of the eyes and
stockier body are all adaptations for survival in the cold.

According to Marta Mirazon, the physical anthropologist, “One archaeological data at least confirms that humans from the Mongoloid race resided in ‘North-East’ during the Palaeolithic
(4)
Era.

It is estimated that it was at the end of Last Glacial Maximum, 20,000 years ago that our human ancestors began to settle down in East Asia before the invention of agriculture.

It is thus possible that Meitei of Manipur changed anatomically during the late Last Ice Age, about 25,000- 20,000 years ago, from the original dark African ancestors to the Mongoloid phenotype because of ‘drift’ or by Natural selection, as adaptation to cold. The Meitei were a small population and thus favourable to the force of ‘drift’.

There are many physical variations among the Mongoloid phenotypes. The Meitei belong to the Paleo-Mongoloid (20,000 years ago) like the Naga and Thai, while the classical Mongoloid phenotype developed in Siberia in response to the Last Ice Age.

What then is a Meitei? A Meitei is a “New man” – a new phenotype from Manipur, the melting pot of Southeast Asian nations.
