Imphal, June 9,

Indo-Myanmar Border town Moreh in Manipur, a dream city of the state, with the coming of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s auspicious “Act East Policy”, is finally converting into a sex destination for peoples’ representatives visiting the state. This is not just a hear say, but Imphal Times have video to prove how elected representatives who visited the state on official tour spend time while visiting Moreh town.

Members of the Committee on Internal Resource and Central Assistance of the Bihar Legislative Assembly visited the Manipur Legislative Assembly last week as a part of study tour. MLA Yaduwanch Kumar Yadav of RJD who represents Pipra (Supaul) assembly constituency as well as the Chairman of the Committee led the team. Other members accompanied in the team were MLA Sachin Prasad Singh of BJP who represents Kalyanpur (East Champaran) Assembly Constituency, MLA Raj Kumar Rai of JD (U) who represents Hasanpur (Samastipur) and MLA Shivachandra Ram of RJD who represents from Raja Pakar (SC) (Vaishali) Assembly Constituency.

The members of the Committee led by MLA Yaduwanch Kumar Yadav of RJD visited border town Moreh on June 1, 2019 to take stock of the development program being taken up under the auspicious Act East Policy of the Government of India. They were reportedly guided by staffs of the Manipur State Legislative Assembly.

At Moreh Town, Imphal Times source fails to collect report of what the 4 MLAs who visited Moreh on official visit at the cost of the Bihar state exchequer (public money), but witnessed them dancing with girls. Yes those MLA are caught in camera while enjoying sexy dance with teenage girls at a room in the border town on Myanmar side.

This is perhaps not the first case but there were lots of such incidents happened where most VIPs, VVIPs consider the border town as sex destinations. However, due to lack of proper evidences, such immoral practices were put under carpet. This time the ugly truth of VIP and VVIPs visiting Moreh is revealed.  

(Video of the dancing scene will be available in Imphaltimes Youtube channel and our Android app )

While condemning police excess towards civilians at Yaithibi Loukol,  Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) has blamed the state government for not respecting “The Manipur Conservation of Paddy Land and Wetland Act, 2014”.
A statement by Kh. Phajaton, President of the YFPHR, also condemn the government for destroying the Paddy land which are the primary livelihood of the local people contributing to food sovereignty and right to food.
“Manipur had its Second Nupi Lal for exporting the rice by the British Government in the year 1939, however, all went in vein after 82,000 hectare of paddy land were submerged by the Loktak Hydro Power Project since the 80’s and also large number of paddy land have been destroyed by the ongoing developmental projects in Manipur like Maipthel Dam, Railway Projects, Kuga Dams etc. But at Present we could witness the acquisition of Yathibi Loukol for the construction of Food Park by violating the Manipur Conservation of Paddy Land and Wetland Act, 2014 as a new step to destroy the cultivable Paddy Land”, the statement said.
The Forum also reminded the commitment of Chief Minister N. Biren Singh , wherein he vowed to protect agricultural lands and wetlands in order to ensure sustainable development to the people and maintaining ecological balance on June 20, 2017, while speaking on a one-day interaction programme of local and district level monitoring committees constituted under the Manipur State Conservation of Paddy Land and Wetland Act, 2014, organised by Department of Revenue at Manipur State Film Development Society (MSFDS) Auditorium, Palace Compound.
Further on 7th April, 2018 On a serious note, the Revenue Minister Karam Shyam highlighted the importance of the enforcement of the Manipur Conservation of Paddy Land and Wetland Act 2014 after witnessing various construction works and establishments in the field and paddy-land areas along the route to Lilong and Thoubal and beyond to Pallel, the statement added.
The YFPHR also recalled the appealed by the Minister to the public to respect and follow the laws by leaving behind personal gains for the food sustainability of the future generations.
The statement further said that the Plan of the government to construct 100 acre of mega food park, 150 acre of logistic park and 100 acre of Jewellers park is a clear violation of its own formed law “The Manipur Conservation of Paddy Land and Wetland Act, 2014” which need to be stopped immediately until an alternative cultivable land are provided to those affected villagers which should be feasible for them to access like earlier they did in their paddy land. Compensation will only destroy the sustainable livelihood of the community and will threaten the food sovereignty and right to food of the people.

Oh; my endearing Globe ,
Have you ever perceived
the warmth of your mushy bosom?
Scattering red flecks of red longings,
Accentric minds chase the dreams
To suck your  green tears
at a little distance.

Oh; my enchanting earth,
Have you ever pained
untold agony of your white breast?
Sailing numerous ship and boat ,
 Interminable bargaining crowds
over the price of your green vibes.

Oh;my beloved mother,
Calling you, as ‘Nymph’.
Let unveil your irked face .
Now, Silence would ruin everything.

Her Fantasy

By-Dr Nunglekpam Premi Devi
Independent Scholar

She dreams a life; she dreams her own;
She hopes and she admires; she dreams her silence;
She smells and she loves; she feels and she hugs;
She owns her time, clock a mystery;
She hangs her out own, secretly silent;
Morning’s so fresh; Mornings’ so softly;
Her heart speaks; her mind talks;
She loves cuddling and she loves shadowing;
She holds her magic; fresh as her bloods;
Smearing her cloth line; murky as she desires;
She embarrasses; she fazes; and she closes in;
Her womb so tight; her chest so forbidden;
She cares and she covers every piece;
She digs and she plants; magic into mirrors;
She lives a queen; she holds no mistakes;
She’s bounded; she’s all walled;
She’s fantasy; she’s imagining.

She favors ‘his’ presence and she waits;
She smiles within heartily; she adores ‘him’ secretly;
She loves being drug into his; warmly smiles;
She believes his chest and she forgets to live;
His shoes and his hairs; all superb;
Evening so waiting; his arrival ‘all home’;
His clothes and his inners; all magnificent;
She owns her place; she loves and she sees ‘him’;
She makes ‘his bed’ and she comforts it;
She fancy ‘his’ words appreciating;
Ah! You’re too good for me;
Her breaths ‘his body’; she checks and she steals;
She loves being listening; her man as ‘he ‘be still;
She desires attitudes touchy upon his hands so cold;
She’s all calm; her doors all securely open;
Her prettify loosen, so peaceful with ‘his bosom’;
She’s glorious and she’s all beautiful.

She loves ‘his’ smells and fascinates his ‘touch’;
She moves again and after; she’s inviting his;
His ‘presence’ so magnetic arousal;
She flattered ‘his’ holding hands; so touchy;
Her breaths faster; she pumps stronger;
Her ‘love’ and his ‘love’; twining and tingling;
Stealing his moment; she imagines lying upon his lap;
She hopes and she imagines; adventures and mysteries;
She listens to ‘his’ so dearly; she performs strongly;
She isn’t feeling weak as he ‘holds’ his within;
Her eyes so seductive; her lips so touchy;
Her hair so fragile; her body so smooth;
Her wetness, Ah! The scent of the two souls;
She brings in his; she feels so magical;
Her bed so velvety; his moves so tremendous;
She love being exchange; she desires a fantasy;
She’s fantasy; she’s all absence of fear.

A tribute to Arambam Somorendra

Every year on June 10, we observe his Death Anniversary both in Manipur and outside. Arambam Somorendra was born on the 12th  July 1935 at Sagolband Meino Leirak Imphal. His father was the late Dorendrajit  Poet, Playwright and Author of the 193Os. His mother was Longjam Ningol Jamini Devi daughter of Longjam Amuba, the lshinglakpa during the British Administration. Somorendra’s Grandfather Meino Babu was the first Sub-Inspector of Police after the British takeover of Manipur after the Anglo Manipur was of l 891 . His grandmother Khomdonsana was the youngest daughter of Maharaja Surchandra (1886-1890)
During the second world war when Somorendra was 9 years old his father died in 1944 during the tension and struggles of human displacement. His maternal grandfather who had agricultural tenants in Sawombung village gave the family shelter. But the sudden invasions by the Japanese forces from the Ukhrul side forced them to seek shelter at Salam Keikhu in the traditional Langon yanfams of the family. However Dorendrajit died at age 37  leaving his wife  and two sons and a daughter as orphans.
Somorendra’s widowed mother reared the family after the war. He finished matriculation at Churachand High School and entered D.M. College in the intermediate class in 1955. He inherited leadership qualities from his erstwhile grandparent’s yet he nourished the thirst for movement and change as youths of the day. During the feverish student agitations in the I950s through socialist ideologies and practices, Somorendra led a batch of khwai students who picketed at the Khwairamband Bridge in 1952. The police beat him up and threw him down into the Nambul River. His family and friends nursed him back to health. Since then he was determined to fight for justice & dignity for his people.
At Dhanamanjuri college he rose to the position of senior under officer when the National Cadet Corps was first introduced in 1955.
After finishing the MA degree in Pune University in 1963, he slowly and consistently worked for the unity of the hills and plains people and aspired for the transformation of the status of the once proud pan mongoloids of the north-east. In 1969, the first notice came that there was an insurgency movement in Manipur and Somorendra left home and went underground for six years.
In 1975, when the Government of Manipur proclaimed general amnesty, Somorendra returned to Imphal and spent the rest of his life as a cultural activist and social visionary. He wrote a number of award winning plays and contributed to the revival of indigenous cultures of the land and also for special empowerment to women. He also worked for the consolidation of the Meitei diaspora.
While attending a seminar on shumang leela at Khurai Nandeibam Leikai on June 10, 2000, he was shot at by some unknown assailants. He was martyred for his land and people he loved. His friends, colleagues and admirers built a mausoleum at the site of his martyrdom. And each June 10, since then both the people from Manipur and outside offer flowers to the soul of this patriot of Manipur.
