Whether it is a politician, lawyer, Doctor, Engineer, or Journalist, all follow their professional ethics. A professional who fails to follow professional ethics while rendering their service may be considered a failed professional in any field.
In the Hindu Epic ‘Mahabarata”, there was an episode where Professional ethics had been well maintained. All know it was a war between the Pandavas brothers and the Duryadhona brothers. In the longest Epic, it was stated that Duryadhona, came to Sahadeva , who was an Astrology by profession, to tell him the best timing to start their journey of the war that was supposed to fight with the Pandava brothers. Sahadeva, despite the fact that Doryadhana is fighting with them, told the right time to venture out for the war. Sahadeva also calculated the best timing to start the war with Kourava by the Pandava. It was all about the ethics of Sahadeva Professions. He did compromise his profession.
Sunday evening show Chief Minister N. Biren Singh sparing some of his busy schedules to be with the people at the newly inaugurated recreational park constructed at the eastern side of historic Kangla Fort. He picked the right place to meet with his fellow citizens irrespective of which community or constituency they belong to. What surprises people like me who are in the news business is that Chief Minister N. Biren Singh in his 60s was seen as more athletic while he joined the people at the park. The gesture of the Chief Minister N. Biren Singh, which he never says ‘no’ to any people while asking for ‘Selfie’ by young and old or people of different communities who have been inhabiting the region for quite a long time like brothers and sisters showed that, N. Biren Singh understand the real meaning of being the public leaders.
People of the state as well as the watchdogs have seen the endeavor of Chief Minister N. Biren Singh about his desire to keep in touch with the common masses as much as he can. We had seen him introducing meeting with the public as well as leaders and representatives of almost all communities of the state soon after he became the chief minister in 2017.
The media had witnessed N. Biren personally visiting some of the needy and tried to collect as much information that the people are facing from the day he came to power. Besides, in order to keep intake with the common people, N. Biren had also opened many platforms using all internet connectivity where people in need can contact him at any moment. He is also perhaps the only Chief Minister who had open his Cell Phone open 24×7 for all people. (Even after knowing that the intention of the Chief Minister is to make sure that people in need are not deprived of their rights ensured by the government, there are criticisms on the part of implementations).
In the annals of Manipur’s political history, N. Biren Singh perhaps is the only Chief Minister who spend more time with the fellow citizens of Manipur than any other Chief Minister we had seen before.
Yesterday evening episode, in which he himself visited the newly open recreational park at the Eastern side of Kangla Fort near the Imphal River bank and where he accepted and welcome every people on the request to take a Selfie with the Chief Minister was another appreciating gesture of N. Biren Singh. In around 1 hour walk at the park, the Chief Minister instead of disturbing the atmosphere allows all those who wish to take a selfie with him. Never in the political history of Manipur, no such friendly attitude of a person holding the top political post was noticed. He seems to show no tiredness instead his smiling and supporting voice enthralls the people.
It was a proud moment for those who had the opportunity to take a selfie with the Chief Minister yesterday evening.
N. Biren Singh, in his second term as Chief Minister finally is nearing his destination to become the ‘favorite Chief Minister of the People’. Hopes the gesture continues for a better Manipur.
