December ni 09 2015 zankim-zankhang in ka diary ah hiai ka gelh hi:

On the historical 100th day of Manipur Tribal Movement against the Government of Manipur passing 03 anti-tribal bills*; seeking justice for the 09 innocent people; and claiming their well deserved separate administration "Coffin Rally from Jantar Mantar to Parliament Street, New Delhi; the weather was cold, and a little bit windy. However, drizzling drops of rain was not powerful enough to disperse the crowd, to make tribal folks run away from the streets and seek the nearest shelter. The scene became even bleaker, but not the justice seekers. Yet it wasn't able to break the newfound will of this nation's youth standing united for a cause. How could a spell of rain (even if it rains) break those who'd already prepared themselves to face the monstrous water cannons, lathis or teargas? Besides, they were anyway waiting for the rain... blessings from up above. An efficient leader gave a speech. A few moments of silence were what the audience needed to understand and digest all that he stood for. There were simply no ifs and buts in the issue. It was the plain naked truth. When you don't fight against evil, you too are to be blamed as much as the evil itself. You've got two choices: Accept it or fight it out! A man uttered, "Well, you couldn't live in Rome and fight with the Pope!" A tribal guy sang a song he himself composed: "MY MOTHER LAND!"
