Nurturing Peace

By Nagaland Post | Publish Date: 2/15/2020 1:12:04 PM IST

 The Government of India has signed two separate agreements: the Framework Agreement with NSCN/GPRN and the Deed of Agreement with Naga National Political Groups (NNPGs). We continue to wait for both these agreements with the competencies to be shared in full with the Naga public. 

Once the contents of these agreements are shared, they may illuminate a way forward from the current state of conflict fatigue and disunity. This has potential to free current and future generations to exercise the Naga historical and political rights in consonance with the contemporary realities of their time. 
In the meantime, the Forum for Naga Reconciliation (FNR) is reminded of Richards Rohr’s incisive observation that, “Pain and suffering that are not transformed are usually projected onto others.” This is a timely reminder for Nagas to assume self-responsibility and partake in the process of healing and reconciliation without blaming others for one’s own shortcomings.
Today, in an age of accelerating political and social changes taking place in the world, and our own diverse aspirations, Naga national groups can collectively help to lead the way to a shared reality. This can be cultivated only when all conflicting parties agree to meet despite all the biased perceptions. Let us free ourselves from the suffocating culture of endless politicking and the denial that others do not exist and do not matter.
Nagas must take the leap to move forward with creativity without departing from our historical and political rights. As Nagas, with a common political history, we need to sit down, think and act towards giving our future a chance. This responsibility of finding long term peace belongs to all the parties concerned. 
The FNR consistently supports the possibility for transforming our situation through impartial and nonviolent means by increasing mutual understanding and respect. We earnestly appeal with all Naga national groups and the Naga people to contribute toward a culture which nurtures and feeds the possibility for peace.
