Suddenly, we find our representatives talking of “democracy”, “welfare of the people” and “mandate”. My fellow Nagas, let’s stop behaving like savages. We gotta be able to think for our future and our well-being. We are being used. We’re nothing but mere pawns in their game for survival. We must refuse to be swayed by money and muscle power. Let’s keep our future generations in mind when making decisions. For all we know, we cannot trust this current crop of politicians to carry forward our future and to achieve our collective dream, which is a progressive Naga society (so to say in simple terms). We cannot allow ourselves to be sold out. We must resist attempts to destabilize Naga society. We cannot allow our children to grow up in this pathetic environment and pretend that everything is alright. Each day, we are growing apart from God. Each day, we are alienating ourselves from our traditions and values. Each day, we are selling ourselves out. Each day, we are becoming strangers in our own land. At this rate, the end is very near for us. The sooner we realize, the better.

A storm is approaching.
More power to the people!
