All these instances are alike: Christmas, Lai Haraoba, Diwali, Durga Puja, Eid-ul-fitr and all the other festivals and celebrations are only to integrate ourselves as one group and bind us together within this soil.
I am not here to discuss over those heinous jobs we as a whole State pulled recently, and I don’t even blame us because we are humans and we are bound to make mistakes, but these mistakes are the pillars of how well we will grow up. I am also not here to put the blame on the Government and play the victim card and also because I don’t have a say in this.
I am just here to offer my empathy to those people who are suffering and to propagate the thought of unity and how well we are versed in the name of Manipuris.
We are raised to respect communities and protect it as a whole because that is what we are.
