The Ills and Problems of Naga Society

By EMN Updated: Apr 25, 2023 7:31 pm

We Nagas tend to shout vociferously at the top of our lungs, taking no time in blaming, pointing fingers, spitting venom and cursing others, including politicians, bureaucrats, contractors and especially the NPGs as the baddest boy of ‘em all, accusing and despising them of corruption,  embezzlement, siphoning of funds, bribery, poor workmanship and taxations.

These protests are justifiable, because we are bound by the fundamental principles of democracy which gives individuals the right to protest and freedom for speech and expression.

However, the real problem is not from outside but from within, because these protestors, activists and so called social reformers, miserably fail the test when they themselves get the opportunity to occupy the same chairs and positions, i,e they becomes the same (if not more) corrupt individuals.

Turns out, it is not about reforming the society as presumed but it is only about JEALOUSY, HATRED AND BIGOTRY.

The other reason being the same so called social reformers will be like,

“Officer dangor hoi kena kum nai, nijor status pi maintain kuribo napare (Useless officer/official, cannot even maintain his/her own status)”.

These narratives appear, when these so called reformers approach the ‘dangor manu’ for donation or personal handouts and if they are dissatisfied with the meagre donations of that honest ‘dangor manu’ (who just lives one day at a time as an honest officer and who lives on his/her payroll alone).

These same groups of people will not shy away from immediately chastising and insulting these honest individuals of being useless and unsmart officers/officials who cannot even maintain their own status and positions by supporting or donating enough to society.
