About Me and My Poetry

As I reach the zone of mid-life +, I am rekindling my love for poetry cultivated in school-life. I love a few poems so much so that I push myself to attempt to write a few lines in my moment of inspiration . It may not make sense nor rhyme and may come across as a very mechanical. However, the joy it gives in sharing that moment of inspiration through these words makes be blissfully unconcern of possible criticisms. I like to believe that verses should have deep meaning and should allow the reader to draw parallels to their world. Your review either sweet or bitter could help improved my humble attempt at wordsmithy! I love reading and hope to write more than before coming here to this community of talented poets and writers.

Beyond Sense - Senseless Violence in gods' dancing ground!
I am at pains to admit that I consider myself equally Cursed and blessed at the same time for being born a manipuri! The land of mesmerising hills and lush green valleys, where the gods in delight were believed to have celebrated Manipur's natural beauty by dancing in blissful joy, comes up with bizare happenings every alternate day. I Would like to draw your attention to a few of the recent incidents of violence and infringement on the human rights of our own fellow "manipuris" by none other than a fellow Manipuri ('m' in manipuri here is not in capital letters,  for I use it to represent the common man (the manipuri) who is without a voice and at the recieving end of the supposedly other capitalised Opressive Manipuris'- the Politicians, the Bureaucrats, Police Force and the Extremist groups!) . Right now, Sadar Hills bandh is surely and slowly beginning to cripple the economy of the state again. The reason behind the bandh can be summed up as simply the failure of the protective force, the state Police, failure to prevent an innocent Kuki Taxi driver from being lynched by a mob of the villagers belonging to the Meeitei community. The incident sets a very serious precedent for the driver was forced by the Police to help them transport relief materials from Kpi and despite his protest and explicit expression of his fear to venture to the trouble torn area, he had to accompany them. It is also learnt that he was given assurance for safety and protection from hram or any untoward incidents by Officer in-charge and a few of the the Top cops before the start of the journey. Yet, he end up battered, halh-to death at RIMs. The State Police failure to do what they are mandated to do has brought us closer to a communal quagmire! The errant Police party and the perpetrator of violence must be given exemplary punishment and the victim adequately compensated. The missed opportunity for the people of Manipur to show our Govt. and those whom we have given power to maintain law and order that their ineptitude and poor sense of good governance can no longer be tolerated are too many and too frequent. The people must rise up and raise their voice against injustice and violence in all its form and size. Another incident of  Semol villagers deserting their home to escape the attrocities of a UG group belonging to their own coummnity and claiming to fight for their community expose the lies aand exploitation common folks are fed to ensure that predators appears as the protector. what a sham! The revoltionaries of the sixties and seventies, though they were labelled as misguided gun totting youths, atleast had principles and went all out to get the love and support of the people. I am not condoning their means: Violent struggle to achieve what they believed was good for the people of the state. All said and done, violence and strife has become so much so a part of our lives. It is sad to say but it has in some quarters become an accepatble way of achieving an end or delivering justice! This must stop. The Manipuri society must shake off our inertia and no longer accept violence as a means of resolving our conflicts. There must surely be  a better, more humane and peaceful way of dealing with conflict situations and also adressing inter-community frictions. We have mostly resorted to violent means to settle problems and deliver justice in the last four to five decades. I think you will agree with me that it hasn't succeeded in any way, it has rather led to more violence.
