Long Thread:

Life is limping back to #Manipur but not yet completely normal. Intellects are busy giving all kind of futile advices to Govt because they fail to understand that MEITEIS TOO HAVE RIGHTS.

I need to take you back to history to make understand better.


Today #Manipur is MADE to sit on Volcano. Who is responsible? Has it happened in last few years or decades?

NO!! It is a grievous outcome of Nehruvian folly of outsourcing North-east to Missionaries!

A beautiful State is brought on verge of collapse by historical sins!!

Not only #Manipur, but entire North-east has been a victim of Verrier Elwin’s conspiracy to keep region into “ISOLATION”, to allow Missionaries harvest their souls with Rice-bags. Those who didn't relent....were forcibly uprooted and pushed away from National Mainstream.

Long Thread:

Was #ManipurViolence vi0lece by Christians against Hindus? Was it only a targeted religion based Vi0£ence or there is more to it? What was the real cause?

Let me give you Full Details. Only Facts. No Narratives. No Propoganda.


Manipur is a beautiful State with rich ethnic culture and suddenly it was MADE to burn.

What was the reason?

It all started After #Manipur High Court's order to State Govt on including Meitei community in the ST category.

Now you will say what is Meitei Community! Right?

So, to proceed 1st on Demographic Composition of #Manipur

Manipur is home to Meiteis who're Original Residents of State. They form 53% of State population (including Meitei Mu$lims).They are mainly concentrated in Imphal Valley.
They present REAL Ethnic Culture of Manipur.

So I decided to take up mending shoes which I was good at,” says Swuro.⁠

A cobbler in #Nagaland's Phek town, young Toyi Swuro has been helping underprivileged kids by repairing their footwear for free.⁠
We may not be able to help the needy students to buy them new school shoes, but atleast we can help repair their shoes,” he says, but his journey hasn't been easy.⁠

“When I started out, there were evenings when I would close my shop without earning a single penny."⁠

THREAD: At a function earlier this month, #Nagaland CM Neiphiu Rio said he would not be campaigning for the assembly elections, due to take place early next year. Instead, Rio said, he would prioritise the resolution of the “Naga political issue”.…
In Nagaland, this refers to the long-running demand for a sovereign Naga homeland, which spawned India’s oldest insurgency.

The question of addressing these political demands inevitably crops up before assembly elections.
Before the 2018 polls,civil society, tribal bodies, backed by various armed groups, had agitated for an election boycott until peace talks yielded results. For a while, 11 parties signed a bond saying they would not field candidates – the plan fell apart when the BJP backtracked.

The 10th Indian edition of the global Great Backyard Bird Count starts on Friday! The #GBBC is a 4-day event (18-21 Feb) to celebrate our birds by documenting them across the country. Just look for birds as often as you can, and upload your lists to eBird.
Last year (2021), 2954 birders in India uploaded 31,355 lists during the GBBC, clocking nearly 17,000 hours of birding & recording 965 species – 72 % of the total number of species known to occur in the country!…

Can we cross 1,000 species this year?

So, an "emergency" law that is an instrument of discrimination and high handedness continues to be imposed indefinitely in #Nagaland,
even after 17 Naga coal miners recently joined the long list of innocents killed by the armed forces.
Modeled after the colonial-era Ordinance to suppress the Quit India movement, #AFSPA was first enforced in 1958 by Pandit Nehru to battle the Naga separatists in the then undivided state of Assam.

The then Home Minister, Pt. GB Pant (Congress) explained the reason for the Bill:
"This is a very simple measure. It only seeks to protect the steps that the armed forces might have to take in disturbed areas."

(a "simple measure" when an army personnel can fire on mere suspicion and no prosecution or legal proceedings shall be instituted, except with the

1. A most unfortunate incident occurred in Mon Distt of Nagaland leading to death of 13 civs at the hands of our SFs.
2. The op was launched based on confirmed int input. Obviously something seems to have gone wrong. Enquiries will clarify the situation.
3. What was most disturbing was the crescendo of condemnation of the Army and a demand for imdt removal of AFSPA. People used such terms as ' cold blooded murder' and 'murderers'.
4. Not very long back CO of an AR Bn was killed in an ambush in neighbouring Manipur.
Don't recollect the term 'cold blooded murder' being used against the terrorists by this same gentry. At best they condemned it or remained quiet.
5. Point is why in the first place is the army operating in Nagaland.

Not many might know that in 2017 during an op near #Oting village, Mon district, #Nagaland we had lost MAJ DAVID (awarded #KirtiChakra).

The EXACT same place where violence broke out on 4th dec 2021.

Mon is along d routes of infiltration & exfiltration to & frm Myanmmar
They say Major David Manlun fought like a TIGER to keep his men away from harm’s way. 👍

The fire fight had taken place btwn combined group of ULFA + NSCN(K) & 12 #ParaSF.

The “insurgents” attacked from inside an AUTO-RICKSHAW. Believe it or not!!!
Pics frm the op! 👇
That day 4 “insurgents” were killed.
On our side— 3 soldiers of Para SF wr wounded and we lost Maj David, who was to join #NSG in 2 weeks.

Replugging an article we had published on @Resonant_News earlier this year. By @Balidan10para!

The paradoxical tag.

Lost count of the times I’ve been asked how ‘dangerous’ my homeland is. In my initial years of studying outside Nagaland, downplaying this stereotype was a trait I carefully nurtured. I was insanely frustrated and ashamed of the ‘tag’ our state bore. (1/5)
Over the years, I’ve come to realise how insanely naive it was on my part. Coming from a place of privilege, from the comfort of my home, I was disgustingly oblivious to the wider spectrum of the underlying issues taking place. Taking place in my own backyard. (2/5)
Today I am saddened but not ashamed anymore, to acknowledge that, yes, it is indeed a ‘dangerous’ place and one is right to tag it a ‘disturbed area’.

But on what context? That it is a disturbed area to the people of Nagaland. (3/5)

This cartoon from @thetoonguy today in @TheHinduMag today, which captures the reality of knowledge supremacy, triggered an old memory that had been buried deep inside for 13 years.
The Children's #Science Congress was taking place in Baramati, Maharashtra in 2008. I had travelled with an incredible bunch of geohydrologists from ACWADAM, Pune, to see how #science was being encouraged for school goers.
I landed up in a room where children from across the country were making presentations on #biological #sciences. One presenter was from #Nagaland & she made a fantastic presentation on local #rice varieties in her village.

It is quite perplexing to note that #Nagaland governor in his independence day speech has been castigating the elected govt of Nagaland in a vitriolic manner
The then interlocutor of Naga peace talks, the man elevated to the post of governor of Nagaland, while the Modi govt billed the Naga peace accord on 3rd August 2015 as a glorious feat which only "Modi ji can do".
The insurgents are celebrating the Naga independence day while sticking to their arguments of shared sovereignty between India and Naga nation, India and Nagaland can coexist but can not merge, apart from separate flag and constitution.

Paid a visit to the designated #COVID19 Hospital, amidst claims and counter claims in regards to the preparedness of the Hospital. Concluded that, the tall claims of the Govt is not in synced with the ground reality vis-a-vis the preparedness to treat COVID19 patients 1/-
The number of ICU beds with ventilators are just a mere 4 Nos. There is a shortage of PPEs even for working Doctors which makes it a challenge to equipped the nurses.Regarding the substandard and poor quality of the available PPEs, the government promptly replaced them. 2/-
The quick response in this regard is much appreciated, however the question remains if all the hospitals in other districts have also been replaced/provided with quality PPEs. Also quality WHO recommended N-95 masks is yet to be made available for use. 3/-

You know #Nagaland is 'Falcon capital of the world'. Yearly around 1 million Amur falcons visit #Nagaland for roosting, from Mongolia en route to final destination­­­­ South Africa. They Travel up to 22,000 km; one of longest distance migration of birds.
Recently a study was conducted. Where a male Amur Falcon named ”Naga”, flew from Nagaland in India to Somalia in eastern Africa, crossing the entire Indian subcontinent and the Arabian Sea, for five days and 10 hours non-stop and covering a distance of some 5,600km.
In one study three Amur falcons were radio tagged named as Naga, Pangati & Wokha. By 13 November they left Nagaland & by 25th December all three were in Southern Africa. With some halts in India. They took longest over water jounrey. The idea was to study their behaviour.
