State Congress protest to reveal Frame Work Agreement; ‘Seperate administration without distorting Territorial boundary will not be accepted’

Imphal, Nov 12: With talks running around about settling the issue of the NSCN-IM under the Frame Work Agreement, Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee today showed apprehension about the hidden agenda of the Center to the fate of Manipur.

On the other hand Okram Ibobi Singh said that keeping intact the territorial boundary of the state but granting a separate administration for the so call Nagas, as claimed by the NSCN-IM inside the territory of Manipur is nothing but framing a roadway to segregate the state.

A shadowy dreamer

By- Dr Nunglekpam Premi Devi
Independent Scholar

She was there still holding on;
She was there with a smile confidently;
She’s walking with a pretty false;
She dreams and she chatters all with rubbish;
She knows least, she’s a battler;
She swings right and left far enough and
She walks tall enough stretching desires;
‘His’ weakness, she knows as she discover;
She baffle slowly and steadily,
Mystifying ‘His’ every ego wild and secretly;
She cheats and she fakes confusingly;
Oh! How energetic she throws,
Diverting every pulse of ‘His’,
Believing is seeing ‘he’s been blind spotting!
Imprisoning self! ‘He’s a slave to ‘her’ faulty.

She’s possessed with her high spirit;
Feeling jealous of loosing ‘him’ frantically;
Her confident always a lie;
She boosted with much intention targeting;
Oh! He’s all for her and
She’s there with a purpose;
Sweet as she goes, flaunting her braiding long hair;
Tucking within unfolding ribbon;

She believes and she draws and she drives;
She’s an angel to ‘his’ wish,
She loves what ‘he’ amour and
She hates what ‘he’ loathes;
Dreaming of a wild wide world with ‘his’ fantasy;
Diverting every pulse of ‘His’,
Believing is seeing ‘he’s been blind spotting!
Imprisoning self! ‘He’s a slave to ‘her’ faulty.

Oh! What a purpose, a failed purpose,
She lashes upon ‘him’ a shadowy dream;
Marriage and destitute! Alas! A sickening;
Every hour devotion of her a misery,
She loathe her own wealth,
She prays for his illness,
She fights and she cries out hell;
She jumps upon life yearning,
She worship enough of ‘his’ kingdom;
She neglects ‘his’ warmth disharmonious;
Jumping within her fallen shattered track,
Life’s a torment;
She halts disturbing and she’s a plague;
She shattered now and again,
Anxiety and uneasiness she captures hard;
Diverting every pulse of ‘His’,
Believing is seeing ‘he’s been blind spotting!
Imprisoning self! ‘He’s a slave to ‘her’ faulty.
