A Jinxed Struggle?

(Naga Independence) Our life and our destiny, we carve as authors. Scripting our own history; we’ve had no masters. Our Land, we inherently own; So our ancestors had known. Alas! Freedom as our God-given birthright, Now lay bracketed under aggr...

The Undying Sacrifice

Surrounded the village in three rings; the atrocities against the brave souls. Not a sip of water was made to offer. Punished and tortured the whole day. Ah! the pain they had to undergo. Women and children wailing loudly, while others stood speechle...

The Silence of the Committed

In a Land where truth is silenced, And lies and dishonesty reign supreme; In societies where tax is licensed, For motherland whose future’s but grim. Across the streets painted corrupt-red, Where lurks shadowy evil with its ugly head; In the hi...

The Lost Soul

Pretty woman with disguised ugly attitude; Betrayal from her honeyed tongue protrude; Vengeance she seeks from perverted men, If they go astray from her imagined domain! Men- hypocrites with hidden lustful nature; Seduces women and their cherished fu...

Farewell 2018

Like a river emptying into the sea, Ne’er to flow back to you and me, 2018 enters into pages of history Leaving behind only the memory. Mixed memories of the year gone; Engraved in mind; can’t be undone. Good or bad, they are there to stay; Some,...

The Flight of The Raptors

Tis the last week of golden October, When the summer season heat took its flight. The bountiful rain set the dust with might, To drizzle again in mid-November. A spell of magic haunts this ancient land. Sailed they, The Raptors, to the cosy south Lea...

Moving on Despite…

The life I live is not of my own. I know not when He’ll put me down. My past has caused dear ones to frown, But my present proves that I have moved on. I know I am not the same guy, And that’s the blessed reason why I don’t regret for my dark p...

Paint Your Gifted Canvas

The azure skies as the canvas; The trees as brush of all sizes; Flowers, array of many colours, And all men & women painters… Yet a mortal find himself lacking To depict His love in his painting, For ignorance & laxity takes over And ke...

Striving on till “REST”

Turbulent times and situations I face, Sometimes, slow down my race. Discouragement raises its ugly head And blurs my vision to go ahead. Heaven seems to go deaf to prayers Utter’d by a soul seeking answers, Whilst days fleet by sans consolation An...

Life- A Perilous Voyage

By A Anato Swu | EMN Life’s often not what the eye sees. A vessel sailing in the great seas. Calm to a beholder on the shore. Peril to hand that steers the oar. Happy deck-hands on friendly water, Setting up proud sails on fair weather, Soon m...

You Lose When You Quit

The “If” and “Cannot” of Naga Nationalism

By Kaka D. Iralu  If “revelation” was just a creation of man pretending to be God; and if human history was just a fairy tale of monkeys evolving into man; Then why should I waste my time defending my unique history and my lands? After all, whe...
