Life would have been living in paradise if Manipur was not in a chaos. We are caught in sociopolitical and economical conflicts. We live in perpetual fear and apprehension, unable to connect ourselves to the contemporary currents which mark a modern global society. However, the pristine beauty of the land in all its magnificence and artlessness writs large on the blood-smeared landscapes. The natural brilliance gives us a hope that one day, we will come out of this coop of dilemmas and predicaments. Such is the power of beauty. We believe one day, peace and justice will reign.
