In Manipur, the most power ful weapon is money. If we have money then we can buy certificates, jobs and also to caste in Manipur firm by launching one film production. But this is not the right system of producing any film, we should respect the film makers but nowadays there is no exact system in Manipur.
For example in Education system too, if we want more/high marks in graduation then we need to go to some colleges which is not situated in greater Imphal. But such students getting high percentage from such institutions could not get seats in Masters entrance conducted by Manipur University.
On the other hand some teachers thought that if we speak English fluently then we are well educated and eligible for any job in Manipur. But without certificated fluency in English is valueless.
There is a rule in Manipur Education system that is, teachers take one class in a month and get their salary and on the other hand others without taking classes get their salary at the last date of a month.
Nowadays teachers get their salaries without taking their classes, but if we had to go for some donations for the welfare of students and teachers community, they were not willingly given money. But they get their salaries by taking two or three classes in a month.
To sum up, rule is for all it is not for the common people, so need to speak whichever we want to speak. Teachers also need to focus on students welfare not in their salary. After four months strike in any institutions salary of four months were credited to their respected accounts of teachers but they are unable to done one piece of their salry for the sake of students and teachers community or for the sake of society.
