The clarification and the inaction

Coming at the picture now is the bitter truth. The local area development fund of the Rajya Sabha MP had been misappropriated. In a clarification regarding news report about misappropriation of MPLADF, published in various electronic and print media, K. Bhabananda, the Rajya Sabha MP of Manipur, cleans hand stating that his power to the utilisation of MPLADF is limited as he could only give his approval and the implementation is left with the Deputy Commissioner of Imphal West.

After the report of misutilisation of MPLADF comes up in the public domain various local clubs and organizations started voicing against the misappropriation of the public money and the most recent news is that some workers of the RS MP handed over the fund for construction of Public Toilet to the local clubs of Sagolband Moirang leirak (subject to correction). If all that is happening has reached to the ear of the MP K. Bhabananda, then his silence by not initiating any action against whomever involved in the misappropriation of his LADF will be questioned again.

In his clarification, K Bhabananda had already thrown the ball to the court of the DC. Till today no press statement or clarifications comes from the DC regarding the misappropriation of the MPLADF. If what K. Bhabananda had clarified stands true then he should initiate immediate inquiry against the misused of his LADF and take action to all those responsible.

A mere silence and practice of shrewd technique to silence the people over the misappropriation of the MPLADF may cool down the mater for some times but it will spark again as a political weapon to defame the political party that K. Bhabananda belongs to.

The clarification by the RS MP clearly indicated that he too is now aware that somewhere there were lapses to the utilization of his MPLADF. Whoever, defame his name should be brought to the public if K Bhabananda think that he had a long way to go in politics. It is the people that will judge and his shrewd technique that will decide his political destiny.

The inaction towards the misused of MPLADF will remain as a dark spot to not only K. Bhabananda but to the BJP which is considered as the most discipline political party in the history of India.

Multi-level marketing(MLM),also called pyramid selling, network marketing and referral marketing is a marketing strategy for the sale of products  or services where the revenue of the MLM company is derived from a non-salaried workforce, selling the company’s products/services, while the earnings of the participants are derived  from a pyramid-shaped or binary compensation commission system. A pyramid scheme is a business that recruits members via a promise of payments or services for enrolling others into the scheme, rather than supplying investment or sale of products. As recruiting multiplies, recruiting become quickly impossible and most members are unable to make profit as such pyramid schemes are unsustainable and often illegal though the schemes have existed for at least a century in different guise. Although, each MLM company dictates its own specific financial compensation plan for the payout of any earnings to their respective participants, the common features that is found across all MLMs is that the compensation plans theoretically pay out to participants only from two potential revenue streams. The first is paid out from commissions of sales made by the participants directly to their own retail customers. The second is paid out from commissions based upon the wholesale purchases made by other distributors below the participants who have recruited those other participants into the MLM; in the organizational hierarchy of MLMs, these participants are referred to as one’s down line distributors.
     MLM salespeople are therefore expected to sell products directly to end-user retail consumers by means of relationship referrals and word of mouth marketing, but most importantly they are incentivized to recruit others to join the company’s distribution chain as fellow salespeople so that these can become down the distributors. According to a report that studied the business models of 350 MLMs, published on Federal Trade Commission’s website, at 99% of people who join MLM companies lose money. Nonetheless, MLMs function because downline participants are encouraged to hold on to the belief that they can achieve large returns, while the statistical improbability of this is de-emphasized. MLMs have been made illegal or otherwise strictly regulated in some jurisdictions as a mere variation of the traditional pyramid scheme including mainland China. The overwhelming majority of MLM participants (most sources estimated to be 99.25% of all MLM distributors) participate at either an insignificant or nil net profit. Indeed, the largest proportion of participants must operate at a net loss (after expenses are deducted) so that the few individuals in the uppermost level of the MLM pyramid can derive their significant earnings. Said earnings are then emphasized by the MLM Company to encourage their continued participation at a continuing financial loss.
    The end result of the MLM business model is, therefore one of a company (the MLM company) selling its products and services through a non-salaried workforce (Partners) working for the MLM company on a commission only basis while the partners simultaneously constitute the overwhelming majority of the vary consumers of the MLM company’s products and services that they, as participants of the MLM,are selling to each other in the hope of one day themselves being at the top of the pyramid. This creates great profit for MLM company’s actual owners and shareholders. Many MLM companies do generate billions of dollars in annual revenue and hundreds of millions of dollars in annual profit. However the profit of the MLM Company are accrued at the detriment to the majority of the Company’s constituent workforce (the MLM participants).Only some of the said profit is then significantly shared with individuals’participants at the top of the MLM distributorship pyramid. The earning of those top few participants is emphasized and championed at Company’s seminars and Conferences, thus creating an illusion of how one can potentially become financially successful if they become a participant in the MLM. This is then advertised by the MLM Company to recruit more distributors to participate in the MLM with a false anticipation of earning margins which are in reality theoretical and statistically improbable. The main sales pitch of MLM Companies to their participants and prospective participants is not the Company’s products or services. The product/services are largely peripheral to the MLM model. Rather the true sales pitch and emphasis is on a confidence given to participants of potential financial independence through participation in the MLM luring with phrases like “life style you deserve” or “independent distributor”. Erik German’s memoir “My Father’s Dream” documents the real life failure of German’s father as he lured into “get-rich-quick “schemes such as Amway. The memoir illustrates the multi-level marketing (MLM) sales principles known as “Selling the dreams”.
    Although emphasis is always made on the potential of success and positive life change that “might or could” (not “will or can”)result, it is only in otherwise difficult to find disclosure statements (or at the very least, difficult to read and interpretdisclosure statements), that MLM participants are given fine print disclaimers that they as participants should not rely on the earning results of other participants in the highest levels of MLM participants pyramid as an indication of what they should expect to earn. MLMs very rarely emphasize the extreme likelihood of failure or the extreme likelihood of financial loss from participation in MLM. MLM are also seldom forthcoming about the fact that any significant success of the new individuals at the top of the MLM participant pyramid is in fact dependent on the continual financial loss and failure of all other participants below them in MLM pyramid. MLMs have been made illegal in some jurisdiction as a mere variation of the traditional pyramid scheme including in China. In jurisdiction where MLMs have not been made illegal, many illegal pyramid schemes attempts to present themselves as MLM business. Given that overwhelming majority of MLM participants cannot realistically make a net profit, let alone a significant net profit but instead overwhelmingly operate a net losses, some sources have defined all MLMs as a type of pyramid scheme, even if they have not been made illegal like traditional pyramid scheme through legislative statutes. MLMs are designed to make profit for the owner/ shareholders of the Company and a few individual participants at the top levels of the MLM pyramid of participants.
     In Manipur’s context, it is a well-known fact that many families have been broken and many become slaves due to heavy loss in many fraud MLMs schemes like Unipay-2(commonly known as pokhaibi in Manipur), Visarev, Forex Achievement,Conlift, Zion etc.In spite of all these facts, the trend is still continuing in Manipur in a wide spectrum. Many participants of MLMs whoseproducts are mainly health care or cosmetics or food supplements etc drop their mouth wide open to blow the innocent people ,explaining many intricate and valuable scientific procedures and practices which a medical practitioner / dietician who undergone the study for many years even cannot explain and understand. At the same time all our hard earned money are taken away or drained out of our economically backward state just for the benefit of few people because of illusion that one day he/she will become a billionaire.There is an interesting story in this regard:one day a truck driver got stuck his truck at Kangla Park road near Johnstone School as a big Bazar Bull blocked the road though he trumpet his horn. Suddenly a smart young man in white shirt, black trouser and neck tie with a bag in his hand arrived at the spot. The man asked the driver what was his dismay? The truck driver told all the stories. Then the young man simply went near the bull and whisper something to the bull. The bull suddenly got up and ran away. To his astonishment the driver asked the young man how he could drive out the bull which the driver could not for long time. The young man said, I asked the bull to join one MLM (network marketing) scheme. That’s why the bull ran away, explained the young man. If this is so, the bull even does not want to join any kind of MLM or network marketing. Let all of us in Manipur try to understand the stigma behind the MLM (network marketing) scheme before our families are broken. If we still continue this trend, then will it be wrong to say that we are more foolish than the bull?

By :- Md. Nasir Khan,
Kwakta Sabal Leikai P.O./P.S.: Moirang Certified Trainer:

Early day’s life of human population was dependent of hunting and foraging. Their life was uncertain as they couldn’t decide when they would get their next meal. They have to travel from place to place in search of food. Many a time they would die in masses due to starvation. The current archaeological evidence indicates that anatomically modern humans would have existed roughly 200,000 – 300,000 years. So, for so many such years humans struggled and used their energy only to get more foods and reproduce. Historians hinted that with such mode of living the earth could support about 10 million people till 10,000 – 15,000 years ago. There was no evidence of agriculture. What do you think would be the education of those days? Children of those days were trained to learn to hunt or foraged for food. The people think primitively, nomadically, and could not imagine themselves to think beyond food. They are bound to migrate frequently.


The Neolithic Revolution or rather the Agricultural Revolution, started around 10,000 B.C. in the Fertile Crescent, a boomerang-shaped region of the Middle East where humans first took up farming. By the end of the last Ice Age, some 14000 years ago, the earth had entered a warming trend. Some Scientists theorize this climate change as the reason for the birth of Agricultural Revolution, while others opined the intellectual advancement of human mind. This was how human civilization began. This is considered to be the first global ‘Revolution of the Mind’ after the indigenous, aboriginal and local flowerings of culture. During that time we thought, primarily, agriculturally. Children were educated to be labourers. The worker was a physical labourer on the farm.




The Agricultural Revolution was then superseded, a few hundred years ago, by the Industrial Revolution. Everything changed during the Industrial Revolution, which began around 1750. The story of the Industrial Revolution begins on the small island of Great Britain. Watt’s steam engine made energy supply more efficient and reliable than ever before. It was fundamental to kick-starting the Industrial Revolution. The Elementary Education Act 1870 allowed all children within the United Kingdom to have access to education. Education was not made compulsory until 1880 since many factory owners feared the removal of children as a source of cheap labor. However, with the simple Mathematics and English Skills the children were acquiring, factory owners had workers who could read and make measurements and therefore contribute more to the factory. During that time we thought, primarily, industrially. Children were educated to be labourers in the industrial-military complex. The education system evolved to produce ‘food’ for industry.



The Information Age began around the 1970s. It is also known as the Computer Age, Digital Age, or New Media Age. This age is also known as the Age of Entrepreneurship. There were huge growth of Entrepreneurship and began setting up and running companies. This era brought about a time period in which people could access information and knowledge easily. There were many different inventions that came about because of the Information Age, one of which was the computer. The Internet allowed people to access information with the touch of a button. Tim Berners-Lee, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates are several important people of the Information Age. Their creation of World Wide Web, first effective personal computer called the Apple 1 and Microsoft

 changes the way human think and works. We think informationally and technologically, and children were taught to be information technologists. It has changed the people, technology, science, economics, culture and even the way people think, as I mentioned earlier. Now tell me at what age we are in? Write your thoughts on a separate piece of paper. The most common answers to this question are: Information, Technological, Computer, Digital, The last! If we are in this Age then such thinking and education will be appropriate. However, if we think we are in this Age but are not, then such thinking and education will be inappropriate.  In a field survey done during the last 3 - 4 years, the vast majority of tens of thousands of government officials, professionals, business people, and educators at all levels, students, and members of the general public felt that we are currently at this age. As many as 90% of people believe we are in this Age, and thus the world is currently thinking predominantly in the Information/Technological mode. We are not in the Information Age Now! The Information Age provided us with the greatest cause of global stress the planet has ever known: Information Overload. For example in 2007 alone, the human brain, according to research by Xerox, produced 281 Exabyte’s of information. This is equivalent to 15 encyclopaedias laid side by side, on which 15 more encyclopaedia are placed, this process continuing until each of the 15 piles reaches the 93 million miles to the sun. The worker in this age was an information/ technology worker. The education system was encouraged to shift to a more information/ technology base.


This Age began in 1990. The Knowledge Age is a new, advanced form of capitalism in which knowledge and ideas are the main source of economic growth (more important than land, labour, money, or other ‘tangible resources). In the Knowledge Age, change, not stability, is given. In this Age, we thought creatively, innovatively, and adaptively to be able to see the ‘BIG Picture Level’. The Tsunami of Data originated since the Information Age that leads to global stress: Information Overload, keeps rising incredibly. To deal with this Information Overload, the human brain devised the next revolution of the mind: the Knowledge Age. In this Age information was clustered into meaningful chunks in order to try to contain and manage the increasing tsunami of data. This Age gave rise to such new concepts as Knowledge Management, and such new positions in national and multi-national       businesses and governments as Knowledge Manager and, on many Boards, Director of Knowledge Management.  It should be observed at this point that every Age that is superseded by a new Age still remains with us. The Agricultural, Industrial and Information Ages are and will always remain a part of our societies, and it keeps developing.  In the Knowledge Age we thought knowledgably.  Children were taught to become Knowledge Workers.




The Age of Intelligence is believed to have started from 2007. At an international conference on creativity and thinking in Singapore in February 2008, a number of Directors of Knowledge Management declared that knowledge management was not really working as well as had been anticipated and hoped. Why?  Because there is something far more important to manage than knowledge: The Manager of Knowledge. If the manager of knowledge does not know how to manage itself, it will miss manage whatever knowledge it has. The far more important to manage than knowledge, is to manage the manager of that knowledge.  And what is the manager of that knowledge?

 Your Brain! Your brain manages knowledge by the use and application of its multiple intelligences. It is these that must now be nurtured and used as they are designed to be used. We are thus now entering the Age of Intelligence.  This fact was confirmed at the 14th International Conference on Thinking (2009) by the Y. B. Dato Seri Mohamed Khaled Bin Nordin, Minister of Higher Education, Malaysia, by Professors Edward de Bono,  Prof Datuk Dr Nik Mustapha R. Abdullah, Vice Chancellor, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Tony Buzan, Inventor of Mind Maps® and Howard Gardner, and by the 2,000 international delegates of that conference. At the Opening ceremonies it was officially declared by Tony Buzan that:‘We are now in the Age of Intelligence. That the 21st century is the Century of the Brain, and the third millennium will henceforth be known as Millennium of the Mind.’ ‘ There is general global consensus on the Revolutions of the Mind during the 10,000 year history of human civilization.’ In the Age of Intelligence we will think (at last!) Intelligently. In this new and dawning Age, children of all ages will and are beginning to be taught to become Intelligence Workers by becoming Mentally Literate - focusing on creativity and innovation, communication, service, learning how to learn, memory, creativity, speed reading, Mind Mapping, knowledge of the brain and its application, ethics, knowledge of the multiple intelligence,  self-management, mindfulness, full use of our cognitive skills, and all forms of thinking including analytical, strategic, lateral, creative, meta- and radiant.  Mental literacy will be defined as being similar to normal verbal literacy and numerical literacy.  Verbal literacy means understanding the alphabet of letters, words and language and being able to juggle with those appropriately.  Numerical literacy means understanding the alphabet of numbers and being able to juggle with the infinite combinations of those.  Mental literacy means understanding the alphabet of the brain’s physical structures and that of the brain’s cognitive and learning functions.‘All students and teachers will become mentally literate at this age. The classroom will be thinking rooms; schools will be thinking schools, producing thinking graduates for their intelligent nations and intelligent world.’

It should be noted that when one age is superseded by another, the former age continues. Thus the Agricultural, Industrial, Information and Knowledge Ages are still with us. The advantages of our current superseding age is that finally we will be able to think intelligently about Knowledge, Technology, Information, Industry and Agriculture – a type of thinking that has been solely lacking, as our environmental, economic, educational, business, health, crime, corruption, conflicts and wars, and social irresponsibility performances indicate.
