Demonetization & Demonization


Confusion heard his voice,
and wild uproar Stood ruled,
stood vast infinitude confined;
Till at his second bidding darkness fled,
Light shone, and order from disorder sprung.

Mitdel Sai Hmu


A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin

and philosophers and divines.

The Destiny of Man is to unite, not to divide.
If you keep on dividing you end up as a collection of monkeys
throwing nuts at each other out of separate trees.

My Hero


I still vividly remember my first trip to Churachandpur in January, 1955. Together with my brother-in-law Rev. H. Daia, his eldest son Hrangchunghnung (H.C. Hrangate) and others, we left Pherzawl on foot in early January to attend the General Assembly of Independent Church held at Saidan. We traversed the mule’s road up and down the hilly terrain from dawn to dusk with bruised feet for three days carrying a load of dried chilly on our back for sale on arrival to meet our expenses during our stay at Saidan and a proposed visit to Imphal. It was my first encounter with the so-called a civilized world. Though I already had finished Class VIII and enrolled for Class IX, I had not seen a real bus or a bicycle except their pictures from books as these inventions were yet to reach the interior hills. Naturally, I was excited beyond words.
