Annihilation and Assimilation-Too Barbaric

Sir,
The state of Manipur from the invent of human settlement till now, was a land of various ethnic groups, who were almost independent with a strong common national convention.
The Indian population of colonial attitude devided once an independent state into hills and plains geographically. Their sinister idea is to crush the indigenous population of the state into insoluble pieces on ethnic lines.
The existence of multi-party system in the mainland is the clear sign of political chaos, is trying to sneak into the state to antagonise the native and indigenous population of the once an independent state into mere pockets of vote bank for their selfish political horse trading, thereby forgetting to treat the state as an independent state.

A few of the native and indigenous population of the state who would have been treated as reactionaries in all the countries which fought for liberation and independence, are having hidden denners to devided the once an independent state into mere geographical pockets of ethnic groups.
The misguided political aspiration among the blinded few native and indigenous population is the brainchild of Mayang Brahmins and Bandits. And their gloomy and misguided aspiration is to annihilate the other brother and assimilate some if possible. For a lion’s share of land to ever remain in the colonized state, it is a request, “to be the last in the race of ownership but not on the top in the race on slaverism”.
The hope and the truth remain where a quarter of the population of this colonized state stood for a united and strong independent Manipur, in the first ever historic march of Integrity on 4 August 1997.

Yours

Germany beat Argentina to lift Golden Trophy

Germany defeated Argentina 1-0 in extra time to win the 2014 World Cup at Estadio do Maracana in Rio De Janeiro on Sunday. The match remained scoreless into the second period of extra time when substitute Mario Gotze scored a superb goal in the 113th minute after receiving a cross from teammate Andre Schurrle.

This is the fourth World Cup triumph for Germany. It last won the World Cup in 1990, defeating Argentina in another cagey final. By winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, Germany became the first European side to win the tournament when it was held in South America.


Hailed as "Messi vs. the Machine" by ESPN commentator Jon Champion, the final lived up to its advanced billing, even if goals were hard to come by. Germany, coming off a 7-1 dismantling of Brazil in the semifinals, dominated possession in the early going but nearly gifted a score to Argentina in the 21st minute. Argentina forward Gonzalo Higuain found himself with a clear run on goal after Germany's Toni Kroos gave the ball away. With no defender between him and the Germany goal, Higuain failed to even put his shot on frame.

In first period of extra time, it was Higuain's replacement, Rodrigo Palacio, who missed what may have been Argentina's last best chance to score against Germany. Palacio received a cross in the Germany penalty area from Marcos Rojo in the 97th minute. Palacio controlled the pass with his chest and then tried to lob the ball past Neuer. His touch betrayed him in the crucial moment and the shot went wide of goal.

Gotze would score his unforgettable winner on a similar play in the second period of extra time. He controlled Schurrle's cross with his chest and then struck the ball cleanly past Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero. That the goal was created by two substitutes provided the final reminder of the depth and talent of Germany.

"It's an unbelievable feeling," Gotze said after the win, as translated by ESPN. "I don't know how to describe it. You just shoot that goal and you don't really know what's happening. Then at the very end of the match, it's undescribable, having a party with the team, with the whole country. A dream became reality. It is for us, really a dream come true. And I'm more than happy and very proud of the team and of what happened here in Brazil."

Brazil 1, Germany 7: A New Record Low for the Host Nation

Story of the match:

 

  • Germany 5-0 up in 29 mins
  • Klose record World Cup scorer
  • Brazil's biggest World Cup defeat
  • First competitive home defeat in 39 years

 

Brazil's World Cup dreams ended in humiliating and brutal fashion as Germany inflicted their heaviest defeat in the first semi-final in Belo Horizonte.

 

A thunderous occasion that began with Brazil riding a tidal wave of emotion was reduced to a nightmare as Germany were 5-0 up inside 29 remarkable minutes in front of a disbelieving Estadio Mineirao crowd.

 

Brazil's players mourned the absence of the injured Neymar before kick-off, but captain Thiago Silva was an even bigger loss. The result was their first competitive home defeat in 39 years, and the end of their hopes of making it to the World Cup final at the iconic Maracana on Sunday.

 

Instead, Germany will meet either Argentina or Netherlands, who meet on Wednesday in Sao Paulo.

 

Thomas Muller gave the three-time winners an early lead before a period of utter chaos saw Miroslav Klose break the World Cup scoring record, Toni Kroos add two more in the space of 179 seconds and Sami Khedira net a fifth.

Chelsea striker Andre Schurrle, on as a substitute, added two more after the break before Brazil's followers delivered what must be regarded as the defining insult to their national team - cheering every German pass and applauding their goals.

Many Brazil supporters, swamped with such anticipation as they gathered in their thousands around the ground hours before kick-off, were reduced to tears after less than 30 minutes, and reduced to such a state of shock that it was only at half-time that they registered their first serious dissent

This equalled Brazil's heaviest margin of defeat, a 6-0 loss at the hands of Uruguay in the 1920 Copa America, but the impact of this reverse, not just on the world stage but in their homeland, will put this alongside the 1950 World Cup final defeat by the Uruguayans in Rio as their darkest football day.

Muller's early goal was a big enough setback, but the manner in which Luiz Felipe Scolari's side crumbled in the space of seven minutes is likely to be a matter of national debate in this country for years to come.

This was Brazil's first defeat at home for 12 years. The loss for a country built on sporting pride, and at their own World Cup, will be bad enough to take. The scale of defeat will take the inquests to a new level.

The statistics stacked up like pieces of rubble around the feet of Scolari and his players. This was the first time a team had scored seven in a World Cup semi-final, and the biggest defeat in one of these games since West Germany beat Austria 6-1 in 1954.

The five-time champions' team coach bears the phrase "Brace Yourself - The 6th Is Coming". It did indeed arrive, but only in the back of Julio Cesar's net.

With all David Luiz's defensive indiscipline offering rich pickings for Germany's speed and mobility, the game swiftly descended into a fiasco for Brazil.

Much has been made of their over-emotion and there was, in retrospect, an overblown public reaction to the absence of Neymar, injured in the quarter-final against Colombia, in the hour leading up to kick-off.

Scolari led his players off the team coach wearing a white "Forca Neymar" baseball cap before captain Luiz and goalkeeper Cesar held up his number 10 shirt during a stirring rendition of Brazil's national anthem.

It was all downhill, and rapidly, for Brazil from the moment Muller was the beneficiary of dreadful marking to steer in Kroos's corner.

Brazil simply fell apart and it was an invitation Germany were not going to refuse as Klose scored at the second attempt to set a new World Cup record of 16 goals in only 23 games.

What followed was one of the most remarkable passages of play in any World Cup game, let alone a semi-final, as Germany did not just look like scoring on every attack, they invariably did.

Throughout this World Cup there has been a suspicion a mediocre Brazil defence has been disguised. With the shield of Silva removed, they were simply taken apart by Germany, wilting under pressure and abject in coping with their attacking variety.

Kroos side-footed home a finish Cesar touched but could not save, then the midfielder quickly added another when set up by the unselfish Khedira.

Khedira added another before half-time in an example of the complete disintegration of Brazil's organisation, discipline and basic defence. He strolled towards the penalty area untroubled before exchanging passes with Mesut Ozil to score.

It was only then, perhaps as full recognition sunk in, that Brazil's supporters started to deliver a toxic reaction to their team, with striker Fred singled out for vicious treatment.

Despite a lively start to the second half that saw Germany keeper Manuel Neuer distinguish himself, normal service was resumed as Schurrle finished off a fine passing move before drilling a near-post finish past Cesar, who should have done better.

It was at this point the home fans threw their support behind Germany, cheering passing moves and even breaking into applause for Schurrle's goal.

Oscar's late strike was nothing in the way of consolation to them and they turned savagely on their players - many of whom left the pitch in tears - at the final whistle.

Brazil knew their World Cup dream might have to end. No-one suspected for a moment it would end like this.

Samsung reveals new Galaxy S5 Mini

Samsung has announced the next cellular in its flagship Galaxy line of smartphones, namely the Galaxy S5 Mini.

The Mini is toned down in specs across the board, but features many of its predecessor’s features like the fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor.

“If you’re someone who wants a stylish, smaller smartphone without having to compromise on the latest features and technology, then look no further than the Galaxy S5 mini,” says Ines Van Gennip, Marketing Director at Samsung UK.

The Galaxy Mini S5 packs a quad-core 1.4GHz CPU, 1.5GB of memory, and a 4.5” super AMOLED display.

In contrast, the full-sized Galaxy S5 launched with a 2.5GHz processor, 2 gigs of RAM, and a 5.1” screen.

“As with our previous ‘mini’ devices, this latest incarnation combines the iconic design and essential features of the Galaxy S5 with a sleek and compact body. A larger screen might not work for everyone, so the Galaxy S5 mini is great for anyone after a smartphone that they can more easily slip into their pocket or bag.”
The new smartphone runs on Android 4.4 KitKat and ships in four colour options: charcoal black, shimmery white, electric blue, and copper gold.

Other features of the fresh-faced blower include an 8.0-megapixel snapper, 16GB internal storage, a microSD slot (up to 64GB), and Samsung’s Ultra Power Saving mode.

The 4.5” device uses a 2,100mAh Li-Ion battery, which is unsurprisingly smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S5’s 2800mAh juice-box.

The Korean firm’s latest handset is also LTE enabled, meaning you’ll be able to make use of the UK’s ever-growing 4G connectivity network.

Samsung says the device will release in Russia starting in July, with worldwide rollout to follow shortly thereafter.

Pricing and availability for the UK market has not yet been announced, although Samsung assures us the device will land in Britain at some point.
