It’s taken for granted when a regular guy out there perceives the entire North East to be synonymous with Assam or Manipur. That’s inclusive of, say, the GREAT Amitabh Bachchan who infamously hailed Mary Kom as a ‘Mother of two from Assam’.
It can be taken for granted when a renowned publication like Malayala Manorama in its Manorama Yearbook insisted on stating that Jeje Lalpekhlua is from Manipur.
And yes, we have no other option but to take it for granted when the so-called ‘National Media’ like CNN News 18 feels the urge to ‘transfer’ our Mizoram Home Minister to Manipur and make him ‘Resign’ from there.
Yes. Let us all take everything for granted. Who really cares? It might perhaps be necessary that we have insurgency and all those unsavory elements to get ourselves recognised and be ‘researched upon’ at least a little bit by the so called National Media. (God forbid!)
It’s a ‘Home’ away from ‘Home’ for our very own Mr. R. Lalzirliana… Thanks to #CNNNews18… Well done. Bravo. Impeccable Journalism. Truth be told. Hats off to you. Hallowed be thy name.
