This column is a mixed bag of human struggles for coexistence and religious supremacy. The strife for the Darwinian unification of all life including Homo sapiens has been hard and brutal. As I caught the dying embers of British Raj, I have glimpses of Hyderabad, Goa, Kashmir, Manipur and Nagaland, whose histories dry in congealed blood.   Every time an …

SHAKESPEARE'S 400th DEATH ANNIVERSARY ON APRIL 23 2016

William Shakespeare is most celebrated for his Romeo and Juliet – a cosmic spin-off for teenagers. It’s about love that every youth dreams of and often ends in disaster. “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” has permeated any world educational party you care to mention. Shakespeare lived for 52 years (1564-1616). Britain has just celebrated his …

SRI AUROBINDO ASHRAM, PUDUCHERRY

We’re all leery of change, and the future changes in ways we can’t see. I’m always cheered by visions of the future when science will dominate human existence. When one dies the soul dies. I’ve been lucky to have a soul that has seen many of these changes. When I was in class V we were made to memorise in …

THIS MANIPUR - SO MUCH OF KNUCKLE DUSTING

I see friends shaking hands, saying how do you do and I say to myself what a wonderful world – sang Louis Armstrong. This is what we want to see in Manipur; chingmee (hillpeople) and Tammee (valley people) shaking hands as friends and equals; and we say to ourselves what a wonderful Manipur. Friendship involves mutual fondness to begin with, …

THE BURGEONING IMPHAL CITY - BIRD'S EYEVIEW

PROLOGUE. Pursuant to news – Ibobi trumpets Sports & Culture (TSE, April 29 2016), could the development of Ningthoukhong Temple complex include a memorial plaque to Manipur’s first doctor Thokchom Goberdhon Singh, who hails from Ningthoukhong.

The recent earthquake (6.7 Richter Scale) in Manipur on January 4 2016 killed 6 people. There were a couple of mild earthquakes in Imphal that I vaguely remember, just before WWII. A quake in the neighbouring regions of Sagain and Mawlaik in Myanmar on April 13 2016 (6.9 RS) killed 30 people. The earthquake in Japan (7.6 RS) on April …

While agreeing with the Editorial of TSE that Ukhrul district should have had a minstrel berth, “The Psalm of life” with the subtitle – What the Heart of the Young Man said to the Psalmist” comes to my mind.
