Another effort to make our leader understand

There are not many people who would not agree that an adopted child must be told that he or she is adopted. In the rare case where adoptive parents have, for one reason or another, refrained from doing so, the consequences have been disastrous. With so many people involved in the exercise, an adoption can never be kept a total secret, and sooner or later the child involved will discover the truth. It is not difficult to imagine his or her reaction to this belated discovery. So shattering is the experience that youngsters in this situation have been driven to suicide.
In fact, such is the importance placed on a child knowing that he is adopted. There is a strong movement in the West to encouraged White parents to adopt a negro or Asian child rather than one of their own kind. The rationale is that since the child looks so different from his parents, there is no doubt in his mind, or anyone else’s that he is adopted and from the very start he is accepted as such. With the shroud of secrecy thus removed, the whole business of telling the child of his antecedents becomes easier to handle.
Yet the temptation for adoptive parents to suppress this information must be considerable, if only to protect the child from hurt. Their own feeling for an adopted child cannot be any different to those they would have for a biological child. The parental bond are as strong and their love as great. For them, nothing can made the child less their in any way.
Yet for the child, it is different. Much though this child may love the adoptive parent and feel a secure, intrinsic part of the family, there are two factors that are bound to influence his or her reaction to the situation a natural curiosity about the biological parents and an over whelming feeling of rejection at the thought of having been abandoned or given up by them.

This last is what makes telling an adopted child the truth so difficult.
The issue of adopted child is being brought up as this issue is felt necessary to make our leader understand the reality and importance of telling the truth.
A nation, if compare like a parents, need to explain the root of all states and how it accumulate instead of making stories by manipulating history. Like the adopted child, if told the truth, a state which merged to form the nation will certainly be happy to be a part of it but if manipulated history it would be another problems.
To be more open, Manipur was a nation and become a part of India only in 1949. Bridging it as a part of India which was only created as a nation by the British would be no difference from sabotaging the history.

Govt’s inability to announce HQ location of newly created Kakching district fuel anger to the demand Committee

Imphal, April 05,

State Government failure to listen the plea for construction of the newly created Kakching district Head Quarter at a convenient location for all the people of the four assembly constituencies which comes under the jurisdiction of Kakching district is fuelling anger to the people of the Sugnu and Hiyanglam assembly constituencies.
Members of the Kakching district Head Quarter Demand Committee Waikhong Thongjao (KDHQDCWT) during a press conference held today at Manipur Press Club said that state government’s measures to construct infrastructures at Kakching for the district head quarter despite the commitment by the CM for consideration of the demand by KDHQDCWT is nothing but an open invitation for an intensified agitation.
The KDHQDCWT has been demanding the construction of the district HQ at a convenient location for all the people of the 4 Assembly segments under Kakching district. The committee urged for establishment of the head Quarter at Waikhong Thongjao. The demand for keeping the HQ at Waikhong Thongjao area is being supported by 1/3rd of the Wabagai Assembly constituency too.

Speaking to reporters, Sureshkumar , convenor of the Kakching district Head Quarter Demand Committee Waikhong Thongjao said that people of the Hiyanglam, Sugnu and some parts of Wabagai Assembly constituencies had staged protest on February 25 demanding the district head quarter be located at an equidistance place for all the people of the district and that falls at Waikhong Thongjao. The newly district was announce on December 8, 2016 by the then congress government.
Sureshkumar said many were injured in police action to distort the protest and some are still undergoing treatment at Hospital.
“During meeting with the Chief Minister, the committee member had been assured to look after the problem and as per the appealed of the CM to suspend the agitation in view of the examination for students, the committee suspended the stir for some times”, he added.
During Assembly session too, revenue minister had also assured to look into the matter. However, as no measures for construction of HQ at Waikhong Thongjao as demanded by committed has been taken up and instead of that constructions for the head quarter are seen taken up at Kakching the Committee is left with no other choice but to intensified the agitation.
