IMPHAL, Nov 9: While condemning the detention of MPP vice-president Y Mangi under NSA, MPP president Dr Nimaichand Luwang has alleged that the arrest of MPP leader was politically motivated by the state government.

He further stated that an emergency meeting of MPP office bearers and advisory committee seriously discussed the detention of Y Mangi under NSA. It was also decided to find out the truth and ensure justice to Mangi as early as possible, Nimaichand asserted.

Recalling the incident of recovering arms and ammunitions from the quarters of some MLAs at Babupara few years back, the MPP president maintained that the MLAs and others involved in the case have not been arrested and detained under NSA.

Nimaichand also clarified that the MPP is yet to take a decision on setting up vice-president Mangi as a candidate in the coming state assembly election.

It may be mentioned that the vice-president of MPP was arrested by Imphal West police commandos along with four other persons on October 30. He has been detained under NSA along with two other arrested persons after they were produced before the court of Chief Judicial Magistrate, Imphal West yesterday.

Death Wish Grandeur

Gen. George S Patton, the controversial American general during the Second World War, whose memory… more »

Gen. George S Patton, the controversial American general during the Second World War, whose memory still commands a fan following which runs into millions, (search his name on any good search engine on the internet to be convinced of this), had this piece of advice, or some say order, for his soldiers: “I don’t want any of you dying for your country. I want the enemies to die for their country.” The earthy, even if a little reckless charm of the man who must rank as one of the most endearing icons of the last century, is evident in this remark that snuffs out the romance of martyrdom in just one go. In an ironic tribute to his distaste for romance, the man considered to be one of America’s greatest Generals had to face the court martial after the war for physically assaulting one of his own soldiers on the eve of a major battle in the North African deserts for crying and admitting he was afraid and did not want to fight. The military commander after whose name the famous Patton Tank is christened, was indeed the anticlimax of the popular notions of heroism and martyrdom, and very much the opposite of the fire that drives suicide bombers to blast themselves up in their fanatical belief that they would have not only advanced the cause they fight for, but earned themselves an eternity in paradise after life.

While we admire the guts of martyrs and are overawed by their sense of sacrifice, we cannot always condone or encourage people to take their path. Our reservation is especially for the kind of almost voyeuristic obsession amongst people to nudge the society to throw up martyrs. We respect the martyrs, but are frightfully uneasy about the “martyrdom complex” that makes societies crave to see martyrs and treat the phenomenon as the proof of “manly” courage. Martyrdom must be the means to achieve a cause only when there are no other options left, and not the cause itself. It must be a means and not an end. We do believe martyrs and heroes will be thrown up by history on its own when the situation so demands it but we should not drive our young men and women to fruitless and even tragic martyrdom. Even in desperate situations, we believe there is always room for the kind of down to earth pragmatism of Gen Patton.

We have one person in particular in mind, and a string of events in Manipur in the recent past when we ruminate on the subject of martyrdom. There is a brave young lady, Irom Sharmila who has been on a fast for almost four years now demanding the revocation of the Armed Forces Special Powers Act. While her courage is awe inspiring, and her cause just, we still feel those in the gallery have no right to egg her on to die and be martyred. Somebody with her kind of guts can do much more as a living activist for justice, than as a dead martyr. We must work for ways for the revocation of the AFSPA, more importantly, the return of peace in the state relentlessly, but Sharmila must be made to live. We again are awestruck by the self immolation bid by the five brave youth three days ago in front of the chief minister’s office, but we are equally alarmed by the trend. If tomorrow suicide bombers emerge from our midst, rather than be proud, we would be grief stricken. It is of relevance that suicide bombers anywhere have not advanced the cause for which they fight, and if they have made a difference to the body politics of any nation, it has been by way of hardening the state response to the struggles for their causes. Whenever we are overwhelmed by the grandeur of the “death wish” of brave men and women like Sharmila and the five who sought to burn themselves alive for causes that are far from private, we pinch ourselves awake with Gen Patton’s pragmatism. We remind ourselves that living heroes are far more desirable than dead martyrs.

By Raju Athokpam

Marriages are solemnised between the two persons they addressed each other as their better half and a life long companion in all walks of life. But right from the very marriage day, these young people are made to go through a series of gender inequality customs. On the marriage day, the husband dines before his wife and she is made to dine from the left-outs of her husband’s plate. Talking a spoon of food from the used plate and to continue the dinner from her plate, is although becoming a contemporary trend. However, the questionable thing is the underlying theme of woman’s subjugation and male’s chauvinism. The wife is not allowed to eat with her husband by sharing the same curry or any other eatables. When in menstrual cycle, she is even not allowed to serve a cup of tea to her husband, let us forget her going in kitchen and preparing it. During this period, she is not allowed to enter kitchen, touch utensils etc. In other times, she is equally prevented from the mentioned activities unless she has taken a bath. All these activities, if conducted, are treated as desecration. One of the most barbaric forms of human nature, the ‘untouchable’ still prevails in our Meitei society in a disguised form.

There has been a mix of religion and other social institutions. When a woman is suppressed by the custom, the act is being prejudiced and the reason put forward is mostly on the man’s fate. In other words, her breaking of the defined tradition will lead to the husband’s ill luck. Most societies do have unexplained customs which they ‘valued’, but the surprising factor in our case is that, there is no vice versa. Objectively speaking, for good or for bad, if a tradition is maintained, it should be applied to all, irrespective of sex. The gender inequality has been perpetuated by manipulating it on religion.

One reform can be thought by bringing a consensus on a religion-culture dichotomy and inculcate the public on the agreed consensus. For example, mopping the floor should be custom and praying is religion. Even the ways of praying can be custom. Similarly, when the emancipation is achieved from various other religious-cultural practices, the reform in custom will be relatively easier as it will be free from ‘fundamental’ aspects.

God is one and all the religions are His manifestations. No religion will teach discrimination but justice. A taboo should be free from religion. The Truth is obscured, when religion is mixed with taboo. In Meitei mythology, the Goddess “Panthoibi” signifies the high status of women in the society. The name says: “Pan”- taibangpan (universe), “thoi”-athoibi (winner), “bi/pi”- pokpi (gives birth). In the test of time, an opposite turn had occurred somewhere and women were left behind. Historically, the “Nupilan”, the “Ema Market”, the “Meira paibi” etc do say a lot on woman’s participation on public affairs, but that’s only political. The social and cultural aspects are still in stone age.

The projection of female as a flower, the association of her with red/pink colour, their coolness character as that of moon; all leads to a child girl’s cognitive construct that she should be shy in nature, be submissive, etc and on the other hand; boys are taught to be outspoken, be smart, be brave, be a risk-taker etc. As these basic differences have been taught since a child is born, it is not surprising to see that it is mostly the women who have maintained domestic gender inequality. Mother’s love to father and sons for their well being, sister’s love to brothers and father, wife’s love to husband etc which is above all, the most beautiful human nature. But the love is adulterated with superstitions and the whole discussion of this article is the manifestations of this adulteration. We should try a totally different means to capture and continue this root emotion, the love.

Chauvinism is culturally inhibited amongst men. Some people tease their friends as adha-mora, which nearest meaning would be an unholy moron. Such words can be heard, when the society feels that a man is living under the whims of his wife. Such prejudice, in most cases, later came out to be a gender neutral family. Among men, outside their family, they will make mockery of females as fools, hang out to nearby pan-dukan and woo woman shopkeepers surreptitiously. The shopkeepers, in order to sell a cigarette extra, would somehow accept the gestures. Aware of these facts and to avoid unwanted situations, usually her husband or mother-in-law accompanies her from a distance. They also try to introduce themselves impressively, real or fact, to her. They seldom accept returned changes/coins when the cigarette bill is paid to a beautiful shopkeeper. The mentioned situation is much uglier in traditional wine vendors, mostly in tribal community, when these people go there to booze.

I’m not a total reformist nor do I claim that our history has been full of taboo. Rather, I would like to cause to take up a difficult task of segregating the good tradition and preserving it and at the same time reform certain taboos and outdated customs, modernising them, so that the rich culture is preserved at its best as ‘social dynamics’ rolls by. Every Meitei man and woman will be happier of their culture.
