Human being - being a civilised species should hold on with the concept of doing well for the community he or she has been living. Every human no matter good or bad think of doing something good for their community, some are exceptional thinking of the world as one, unlike those who create enmity among others for their mere selfish gains. The war between the rich and poor; between the higher class and lower class, between the Hindus and Muslims and Christians and the indigenous religions were the product of the selfish power hungry people. This is about India.
A matter that we need to ponder on the current happenings is about the so much war and enmity among us? Is it the religions, is it the greed or is it something that one think that a life of someone is useless without money?
Well Imphal Times was too much disturbed in the last two days. Reason – someone not from the government authority asked in hard tone about the source of our news we published. The news was related with the present happenings in Manipur University. Imphal Times pointed out things that have been going wrong in the University and has been trying to correct the wrong. Saying so Imphal Times does not understand discretionary power neither legitimate power to correct the wrong. Media is something that disseminates information news and information happenings around so that people react and those in the government listen to do the needful.
Why? Some say it was because of the new regime’s initiative to convert the country to Hindutva culture? Some differed in saying that it is a matter of livelihood. The latter have points and the agenda makes no difference.
