Sita

By- Dr Nunglekpam Premi Devi
Independent Scholar

Wonder she was the daughter of the earth goddess!
Wonder she was the adopted daughter of King Janaka!
Wonder she was the consort of Lord Rama!
Wonder she was an avatar of Sri Lakshmi!
Wonder she was the paragon of spousal and feminine virtues!
Wonder she was the goddess denoting good sign, good fortune,
Prosperity, success and happiness!
Wonder she was the was the elder sister of Urmila and
Cousin’s sister of Mandavi and Shrutakirti!
Wonder she was known for her dedication, self-sacrifice, courage and purity!
Wonder she was abducted by Ravana!

Wonder she was not burnt undergoing a trial by fire to prove her chastity!
Wonder she was not accepted by her people for long captivity!
Wonder she was forced into exile during her pregnancy!
Wonder she delivered twin sons, raised them as single mother!
Wonder she witnessed the acceptance of her children by Rama!
Wonder she plea for release from an unjust world a life!
Wonder she finally sought refuge in the arms of her mother!
Oh! What a life that took away
Oh! She still is a fertility, abundance and well beings
Wonder she was an ideal daughter, an ideal wife and an ideal mother.

Wonder how cruel the mankind!
Wonder how many more Sitas’ born and abandon!
Wonder how many dutiful fathers will adopt ‘her’!
Wonder how many royal ‘man’ be her willing ‘consort’!
Wonder who she becomes!
Wonder how she represents to this life living!
Wonder she is more of de-feminity and bad fortune!
Wonder how many brothers and sisters she being the eldest!
Chaoba, tomba, thoiba , thoibi, leima,
Wonder how courageous she breathes speechless!
Wonder she is besieging by her own man, own father!
Wonder she is thrown away in grasses and in the river water!

Oh! Breath less soul
Oh! Little goddess of virtues,
How courageous and purity you comes into form?
Cold and dark, so innocently soft unaccepted;
Wonder you being not royal being, hated and unwanted!
Wonder you prove wrongly of pure ‘love’!
Wonder you’re denied by ‘her’, your birth mother!
Wonder you’re ‘Sita’ Sita of Sitas’!
Wonder how many more of you will be dumping!
Thrown dumping in canal waters, river waters, river banks
Layering with your thin muslin birth clothes;
Tangling and twisting thy string of cord!
Releasing from this unjust world of lei!

Reality of the real fact nobody wants to tell the naked truth.

Dear respected and honorable PM Narendra Modi, Manipur CM Biren Singh, Tamenglong district segment MLA Samuel Jendai, MLA Awangbou Newmai, MLA Gaikhangngam Gangmei, Tamenglong DC Armstrong Pame, Tamenglong District Council CEO Dipu Gangmei, Commissioner TD Manipur Thaithuilung Pamei, Chairman ADC Tamenglong Namsinrei Panmei, ZSU and ZYF.
Today I would like to share some of my experiences and doubts of Tamenglong district (included Noney district) of Manipur, India. Things are taking place but none of us may be serious about the happenings. It may also that we may not be able to get or have any data on these happenings which I am going to share with you all and I believe, these
happenings are also neither legal or neither they are being legalize by any legal authority for not to do the work properly.
1. In the whole of Tamenglong district I have not come across not even 4 government schools which are properly functioning without any substitute teachers or having sufficient students and proper school buildings, etc.
2. Where are the government schools today in Tamenglong district in reality? How many of the government schools’ teachers in Tamenglong district know or seen where the school they being posted? Or have they ever gone and seen the schools and students where they are being posted as teachers or headmasters for teaching? Or have they given for substitution to someone else?
3. In the whole of Tamenglong district not an Anganwadi Center in the villages or in the town are seen functioning as per the center should run or function.
4. Is there a single properly function or properly equipped Hospital or CHC or PHC or SPHC with all the posted Doctors and Nurses stationed without keeping any substitutions in Tamenglong district. I have seen or find not one in the whole of Tamenglong district.
5. In the whole of Tamenglong district apart from NH-37 I have not seen nor I have travel on any road even with 5 kilometers properly black topped (concrete).
6. Is the Central Government of India and Government of Manipur pay bills and salaries according to the paper reports that were or are being received from the concern departments and not seeing to the actual ground reality of works which are done or not done before any payment are being done?

7. Have the Central Government of India and Government of Manipur not allotted and not given sufficient money for the public developmental work for Tamenglong district?
8. If the Central Government of India and Government of Manipur have allotted and given sufficient money for the public developmental work for Tamenglong district. Than where are the money gone? Where and how are the works done for the amount of money allotted and given for the work?
9. Is it that the Government departments have instructed the staffs, employees, contractors and public leaders not to do a proper work and not to evaluate the work in Tamenglong district and that the district should remain so call backward and the people’s moral should be hold down?
10. Can the Central Government of India and Government of Manipur start taking up the task of investigation, proper evaluation of the works done and fact finding task team with action force with regard to the past and present work done in the whole of Tamenglong district. And if anybody is found to be guilty than start booking them for every single legal action to be taken on them regardless of what position or office in the past or at present is holding or in what department it was or it is.
11. I believe that all the money that the Central Government of India and Government of Manipur is giving out for the public to have sustainable development and progress of the people in Manipur is of people’s money. Therefore, every one of us has the full constitutional and personal right to enjoy the fruit of the work done and not to be deprived of it.
12. If I have said, which are not true, than please tell me so that I can also believe what I have not believe and can stop my doubt too. And if these, which I have shared are true than reach this sharing to the above mention important and power holding persons for the benefit and for the sustainable development, progress and transformation of
Tamenglong and Noney districts.
