Eat money, eat bullet and talk non-sense!!!
This is the only sentence suited for the politicians in Manipur. E-pao news source wrote about Govt. buying of bullet proof BMW car with a side window glass having thickness of 22mm, to protect their precious life while the people are tortured to live beneath the gunpoint of Commandos and the militants. Why are they feeling so insecure from their own comrades? What about the rest of the civilians in the state? I hope not the govt. is going to ask the center for financing citizen’s bullet proof house for a safety life?
Never knew Manipur govt. is so rich to afford to buy BMW bullet proof car to protect the politicians when even the salaried govt. employees are under forceful fasting due to irregular pay in the state. The prices of food touch the highest peak in the sky and there is no source even for eating. We will come in a time where we have to kill each other and eat while our politicians and bureaucrats will talk nonsense and travel in safe in BMW car or Limousine Car from next budget, probably.
My brothers are hardly here from the last week of February but I’m thankful to myself that I have taken the wise decision to bring them here despite of all the odds I had to face. Even they are influence by the society they lived where only money talks, fashion talks, war talks occupied their mind. No one talks about the price hike of food, politicians’ corruption and govt. policy. Even my brothers don’t feel that they belong to middle class family and they have to work hard to overcome the hurdle in their way. Talks about phone, laptop, music system and branded clothes. Sometime I got irritated even after knowing the fact that they are still too young to understand. That’s the environment they used to live where even the kids grown up with the money talks only. They feel you are useless if you don’t have enough money to feed them.
Coming back to the point i.e. BMW of Politicians. Isn’t it the high time citizens or the NGO’s or organizations in Manipur asked the politicians from where the money to buy a BMW reached to them while the proposal to upgrade the 6th pay commission was flatly denied in the assembly by the CM? I was excited when the news of 6th pay commission was highlighted in the Sangai Express. I called up my father in the morning and said at least we will be able to save some money even if brothers will be here in Delhi. But my father warned me don’t expect too much. It’s Manipur. Nothing works here. Not even the laws you are studying now have anything to do with Manipur. So don’t ever dream of coming back to Manipur and work here. Neither can you work in your own nor can you find a job here. Because you will have intervention from all angle. Even your neighbor can plant a grenade in your courtyard. It’s not too difficult to kill you for thousand bucks in your hand. People surrounds with so much of insecurity from all sections so they never think of life, death, dignity, ego, moral etc. We just live like a walking talking machine.
Sometime I felt why we live like this? Here, we can’t live a peaceful life due to daily race in the big city and trouble from every passing humane on the earth. If you think you are frustrated enough with the situation here, where will you go? That’s a big question. You have to live under the sky of bullets in home without any source of income, food and security of life and most importantly you are not bound to anything and no one is liable for your life. We have reached to the heights of the non-sense, non-ethical society from all directions now.
Daily news in the e-pao is just for time pass now and it has become monotonous. It always zeroed in politicians bullshits, news on clarification for killing from the militants and blame game of the organizations and the race of the bundh, strike and protest.
Really we are left with only few options, eat money, eat bullet and talk non-sense like our politicians.
