Population expansion from Northeast Africa to India and thru Manipur to Southeast Asia

The Meitei origin is contradictory. That means nobody knows the truth. The human origin is also contradictory, but the ‘Out of Africa’ hypothesis of human origin is now widely accepted in scientific circles. My article is also a hypothesis albeit, nearer to the truth, as it is based on scientific methods of rational thought. A scientific method is the process …

American Humanist Association says ''Yes''

Would we know if God left us to fend ourselves without telling us? Would we disappear gradually? I doubt very much. We will still be here. So will be the ants and the frogs. If God gave us the freedom to choose, the so called “freewill”, what would happen to us if we choose not to believe in Him? Would …

1st brother Gokulchandra

It’s Simple. ‘Cause it’s a Meitei family tradition for over 2,000 years as in my father’s family above and the families of his children. Today is May 16 2011. There are ongoing tripartite talks to discuss the demand of the United Naga Council (UNC) for the separation/secession of Naga inhabited areas of Manipur from Manipur itself. I have a gut-feeling …

Educated atheists

I was prompted to write this after I read an article in The Daily Telegraph in May 2011. It was titled “I think, therefore I believe in God” by Tim Thomas, Religious Affairs Editor. In agreeing to disagree with him about these unsolved issues, I thought, I will write this piece in order to continue disagreeing with him while remaining …

Apache country - Cowboy country

While in school I was very fond of cowboy films known as Westerns. I used to read a lot of cowboy novels during my college days. The most famous writer was Zane Grey (1872-1939), known as the “Father of Western novels”.

They are allowed four days off work a year for festivals that celebrate promiscuity and lactating sheep. Neo-Pagans form 2 per cent of the UK population (cf.

A self-illuminating Christmas tree

It has been a tradition for thousands of years to have an illuminated Christmas tree in every house of those who can afford and in public places in Europe and America. Here in the UK I have been struggling every year to put “fairy lights” on our family Christmas tree, with the tangling mass of wires and tiny bulbs. If …
