Writing Fiction.......


 ............ from inside pages of my book, (yet to be titled).

*     The fiercest battles are not fought on the fertile farmlands, but in the human heartlands, where the battle between the wife and the 'other woman' is one of the oldest and bitterest. Often the fate has been unkind to the wife. Once a while, though, it, taking pity on her, does make her victorious, but the victory always comes at a huge price. In every age, in every nation, in every city, in every street and in every house the wife fights this battle every moment of her life; sometimes with relation's help, but often alone...........

*     Wife had the bone and flesh of her man to contend with, as the 'other woman'  had  walked  away  with  her  man's  heart and soul. Nothing could be a greater  tragedy for the wife than to spend her life with a man whose heart and soul have been robbed by another woman............

Haipou Jadonang........................... India's Unsung Heroes.

*     Haipou Jadonang was the youngest of the three sons of Thindai (father) and Tabonliu (mother) and was born in the year 1905 at Kambiron (Puilon) village in Tamenglong district of Manipur, India. He was one year old when his father died. He organised his people into an effective resistance against the British rule. His movement popularly called the Naga Raj spread like wildfire and engulfed the whole region and further widened its influence to neighbouring areas.

*   The British took action to bring down Jadonang and crush his Naga Raj. The Political Agent of Manipur State arrested Haipou Jadonang on 19th Feb 1931. A month later, he was taken to Imphal and imprisoned in the Imphal Jail as prosecution against him and his followers went on in the court of the Manipur Political Agent.

*  On 29th Aug, he was hanged by the British Government on the banks of the Nambul River. Jadonang dedicated his life to freedom of his people. Outside Manipur, this valiant soldier of Indian freedom movement is hardly known. It's sad commentary that most of freedom fighters like him from little known corners of India go unsung, unread and unremembered.
