Letting go

By- Dr Nunglekpam Premi Devi
Independent Scholar

One a rupee, two a rupee;
Worth Counting by all every single morning;
Dreaming upon stepping the wide opening jaws of existence;
I dream of personage,
I dream of actuality,
Curtaining the same old dark green clothing;
Wallowing Walking down this narrow lane!
Making me too dutiful every day attending,
Up and down, down and up,
Sliding hastily, bagging books heavily;
Dreaming the line worth wild is unique;
Study and study, the fashion I indulge in without fail;
Still, how weak I am? Jumbling and confusing,
The chapters within, the materials’ suggestion;
Helping self reading through off-track puzzling;
Alas! If only I have attended tutorial,
Alas! How easy would be, if I have own a tutor;
All’s well with struggling, all’s well with aspiring;
All’s well with just letting go.

One a rupee, two a rupee;
Worth Counting by all every single morning;
Dreaming upon stepping the wide opening jaws of existence;
I dream of personage, hardship and well content;
Never try giving up, still paddling amongst;
I wanna go, I wanna see, I wanna have wings;
Exhaustion! I forget either way,
Feeling out arms stretching helpless empty;
Wandering! Searching and pleading;

Dreams capture me within; too many
Hear me! Hear me saying,
Speaking thousands thinking, losing all in the air;
Let me say, father! I beg
No! Never did they listen;
All’s well with goodness, all’s well with morality;
All’s great with principle;
And all’s well with just letting go.

One a rupee, two a rupee;
Worth Counting by all every single morning;
Dreaming upon stepping the wide opening jaws of existence;
I dream of personage, seeking I should be!
Trying figuring out how should I be?
Chasing every want, fancy to capture ever little;
Chances comes and scatters, never try holding one,
Reasoning how rational it is?
Opportunities flashes off too soon,
Self Hesitating and nervously, relying upon still;
Relying again and out, time is still young;
Bargaining within consciousness, shall I and shall I not?
Ah! I lost it, lost every slot
Help me father! Help me mother!
Pay money for my rank! Go buy for my knowledge,
It’s too much hurting inside;
How difficult I grasp this opportunity?
Easily it goes away;
I wish, I wish I have a plenty to pay! Consoling
All’s well with just letting go.

CM attends to 173 complaints on Hill Leaders’ Day; Successful in delivering human service: CM

Imphal, Sept. 10: Chief Minister N. Biren Singh has said that he has been fairly successful in rendering human service to the people of the State through Hill Leaders’ Day and Meeyamgi Numit.
Speaking to media persons on Hill Leaders’ Day at Chief Minister’s Secretariat, N. Biren said that in fact, the 10th day of every month is reserved exclusively for the village chiefs and leaders of civil society organisations of hill districts while the 15th of every month is earmarked for the common people of both hill and valley areas. However, in addition to village chiefs and CSO leaders, many common people of hill districts usually turn up on Hill Leaders’ Day, he added.
Stating that most of the common people’s complaints which he received on these two days related to poverty, the Chief Minister claimed that he has been quite successful in solving many of these problems.
He further said that many of the grievances could be well taken as ‘human problems’.
Taking an instance, the Chief Minister said that on the Hill Leaders’ Day today, a Meitei woman brought a helpless boy, who was grievously injured in a landslide which occurred near Shirui village recently.
N. Biren said that he had asked Ukhrul DC to extend all possible assistance to the young boy.
Likewise, he had also directed the JNIMS authority to provide free treatment to an intensely traumatised young rape survivor of Senapati District, N. Biren said.
Common demands like development of infrastructures in newly formed districts, repairing of school buildings, construction of market-sheds, cultural complex and roads etc. were also made to him on the day, the Chief Minister said.
Stating that he was shocked on seeing the photographs of the toilets of a Government school at Tamei, N. Biren said that he had immediately directed the Principal Secretary (School Education) to take up urgent steps to construct two toilets each for girls and boys students. The Chief Minister further said that in response to another complaint he had asked the DC concerned to construct a bus waiting shed at Kasom Khullen for the convenience of the students and senior citizens.
Maintaining that commencement of road construction works is being delayed due to rain, the Chief Minister contended that all the major roads would be revamped across the State after the rainy season.
However, mending of potholes is still underway at many places including Imphal-Mao section of NH-2, he added.
The Chief Minister further said that genuine entrepreneurs who came to meet him for assistance on Hill Leaders’ Day and Meeyamgi Numit had been provided assistance in the form of loans.
Regarding healthcare facilities of hill districts, the Chief Minister said that a 50-bedded hospital is now ready for inauguration in Tamenglong District.
On the other hand, 300 doctors would be recruited through Manipur Public Service Commission (MPSC) soon to meet the manpower requirement in the healthcare sector, he added.
The State Government is also trying to fill up the inadequacies related to equipments and accommodation/quarter facilities for the medical staff, he added.
Regarding air ambulance facility, the Chief Minister said that Governor Smt. Najma Heptulla has been taking keen interest in it.
As such, the Central Government is likely to take up necessary steps to launch the facility as soon as possible because Rs 24 crore had already been reportedly earmarked for the purpose.
The Chief Minister attended to around 173 complaints and met around 400 people on today’s Hill Leaders’ Day, which began at around 9:30 am and ended at around 1:30 pm.
