With regard to the circulated new pattern in the MCSCCE syllabus, conducted by the MPSC which have been doing its rounds in the social media, we would like to bring to your attention some of the views concerning the civil service aspirants of the state. Following are some points we would like to highlight to the MPSC on change in the syllabus.
1) The ‘no optional’ (or one optional only in sync with the present UPSC pattern) giving major emphasis on GS will be a welcome move and a long overdue reform. It will definitely bring in more fairness in competition. It is also to our knowledge that there is no scaling (normalisation) of marks obtained in optional subjects by the MPSC giving room for a lot of subjectivity. What has been all these years was “I did masters in public administration. You did masters in computers, now come fight me, I will beat you black and blue”. Instead, if we have a common ground, where there is no optional papers or the weightage of optionals is reduced it will be like “Now we have only common subjects alien to u as much as to me, lets fight a fair fight.”

Sir,
As far as mass suicide of farmers are concerned since decades due to lack of irrigation facilities, loss of crop and torture of unscrupulous money-lenders; the Western states of Maharashtra and Gujarat lead us from the front! Yet these two very states get religiously projected as epitomes of “modernity” and “development” by focusing on the glittering flyovers, shopping malls, multiplexes, sky-kissing towers, high-end apartments and highly corrupt but vulgar rich industrialists and businessmen of Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune, Ahmedabad, Baroda and Surat. This very hypocrite and heartless stance on the part of vested interests directly prove that not the unfortunate farmers or poor lot; but only the rich urban elite of the metropolitan cities matter the most in “progressive” “developed” India and let the others go to the dogs!

Sir,
It is extremely sad! Life of a young and promising sportsperson at his 17 years best was the latest victim as a cyclist in the fast growing Imphal capital city. Shijagurumayum Rishikanta, second son of Sh Nilamani and Hemabati of Khurai Thangjam Leikai was mowed down by a speeding Prisoner Van on 17th June, 2017 at Minuthong Bridge. Rishi was out to repair his cycle with a friend on that fateful day.

We had visited Khadi Expo on 2nd April, 2017 at GM Hall, Imphal Bazar. One of the stalls that attracted us the most was the IMA CHENGHI stall of M/s Holistic Enterprise, Sangaiprou Imphal. Why did that IMA CHENGHI attracted us? Yeah, there are reasons behind this.

Congratulations! on behalf of “Society for Peace and Development” (SOPD), Kangpokpi District, Manipur, for your dramatic victory: forming and becoming the first ever BJP government and BJP Chief Minister of Manipur. Hon’ble Sir, oppositions were agitated, worried and upset but the common people like me were curious but now in a mood of jubilation after your government sailed-through all tides and storms (floor-test/show of strength-with 33 Hon’ble MLAs proved their trust on you and solidarity on your government). Sir, your Government under your judicious headship will remain as annals for the state and her people. Once again, Congratulations.

It is high time the society tries to appreciate the real significance of education. Mere earning of degree does not necessarily make a person educated. And one can also become truly educated without completing school education, attending college or pursuing higher education. There exist innumerable “educated” persons in the society who are racist, communal and intolerant to the utmost, get engaged in “honour” killings, regard the fairer sex as “inferior” to the menfolk or superstitious.
