The concept of Real Vs Virtual World

A few years ago we all existed in one world – that world which may be called the “Real World” or the “Actual World”. A world in which we can see each other, feel, touch, interact, understand and perceive each other too. We have the ability to know how the person we are interacting with is – we may be wrong but at least we have the opportunity to judge – that is because we are physically present in front of each other and interact with each other. We even have the opportunity and ability to perceive what is going on in the other persons mind – what the other person is thinking – whether there are negative or positive perceptions and vibes.

Welfare mentality and how it impacts our society

For many years, many of our people are under the illusion that their respective MLAs/Ministers would do for them something substantive for their livelihood, if their respective MLAs are elected. They have high hope on the government and its welfare schemes. There is nothing wrong to have hope, but our hope should be well-informed. Having hope for something which is not real is very unfortunate. It is not only the people who should be  blamed for having such false hope, the politicians are to be equally blamed for giving false promises which they do not deliver or cannot deliver.

Representation on conflict resolution in respect of Manipur

While acknowledging the Second Administrative Reforms Commission for reposing confidence in the Association of Premier State College Seniors of Manipur (APSCS) and giving the privilege of making an effective representation of the people’s interests about the State of affairs and the “Conflict Resolution” thereon by extending the time when the Commission heard us at Imphal on the 28th July 2007, we wish to begin with a few words about our own Association, perhaps the first of its kind in the country.

Acting good won’t increase your prestige but pressures

Before you further go into my article, get up and ask your father or mother for how they feel about working under somebody for fulfilling their boss’s dreams by giving up theirs. Some crazy poets have made us feel that life is beautiful, life is unlike what they see for they write sweets to sell not wrote what they saw. It’s a world where the fans are used by the self lovers, it’s a world where dreamers are paid to dream for others, this is a world where ‘benefit’ is the motto of getting or giving love.

NGOs and rural development in Manipur

Non – Governmental Organisations (NGOs) are non profit voluntary organizations formed by a group of people with an objective to render certain services to the people. A very popular definition is also given by Willets (2006) which defines an NGO as “an independent voluntary association of people acting together on a continuous basis, for some common purpose, other than achieving government office, making illegal money or illegal activities”. Similarly, NGO Global Network defines a non-governmental organisation as “any non-profit, voluntary citizens’ group which is organized on a local, national or international level. Task-oriented and driven by people with a common interest, NGOs perform a variety of service and humanitarian functions, bring citizen concerns to Governments, advocate and monitor policies and encourage political participation through provision of information. Some are organized around specific issues, such as human rights, environment or health”.

Matos bhai & our FIFA boys “bravo”

On the first (our) FIFA U17 match against America, at the entrance, a security chap asked me, “Which team are you supporting?” I said, ‘Manipur’; my daughter yelled and corrected me from behind ‘India, India’. The same security person told me to leave all my belongings at the entrance as I could carry only the mobile and wallet inside. He didn’t allow me to carry even the coins in my pocket. Perhaps the coin collection on the first day itself might have crossed many thousands (number of spectators 46 thousand).

Confluence of the Past and the Present “Merger Agreement” and Manipur Question

Chemistry Nobel Prize -2017: The revolution towards ‘Seeing is Believing’

It is only natural for humans to be visual-centric which led to the foundation of the perception of ‘Seeing is Believing’. Given a choice, everyone would prefer to be in front of a TV set than to tune in a radio! Because seeing is not only believing but also helps in shaping our reality, if there is anything such as reality – as Einstein once remarked, ‘reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one’. If you see something for yourself, you will believe it to exist or be true despite being unusual or unexpected necessarily implying that what is not seen is not believing, however real it may be! The recently created‘anti-corruption’ cell of the Government of Manipur apparently works on this principle of ‘seeing is believing and not seeing is not believing’ since any complaint therein must be duly authenticated by a photo or a video (unedited of course) evidence to get the accused person penalized!

Trafficking vis-a-vis Domestic Work

The recent rescue of young women including minors from Churachandpur district in neighboring Myanmar gives us goose-bumps. It is shocking and unfortunate. But such reports are not the first and are not likely to be the last. This incident is yet another indication of the present situation in Manipur, particularly in tribal hill districts as most traffic victims were from these areas.

You are born to start not continue

The best thing to fall in love with is your scribbled words of future in your diary; you need to be madly in love with your dreams. Everyone is in the myth of being told to do what everyone does because everyone thinks it’s the best way but nobody has told so, just because everyone is like everyone, don’t kill your wants of being just one.
