The ‘Burning’ Letter (Bravo, Governor!)

 The recent no-nonsense letter of the Governor to the Chief Minister calling a spade a spade has generated quite a debate evoking mixed reactions along expected lines. Most Nagas sense in this a glimmer of hope that the thoroughly vitiated and audaciously  corrupt system that prevails in this erroneously-coined ‘Christian State’ with the exploitated slogan  ‘Nagaland for Christ’ may perhaps be treated with a potent anti-dote and restore our land as the liveable habitad that once was our fair Nagaland before the random and unabashed abuses under and over. The common people, ordinary Nagas, are totally exasperated and itching to speak their mind but most remain boiling in silence because of fear (exception being a bare handful of devil-may-care fire-fighters), many, snuggled in comfort zones, remain apathetic, some are deafeningly silent obviously because they believe that theirs will be voices  in the wild wilderness and a few, either indoctrinated or driven by the knowledge of which side of their bread is buttered, are saying what they are saying. As for me, I count myself among the overwhelming majority of Nagas, irrespective of calling or station, agreeing with the content of the Governor’s letter in to do and thanking him for his obvious commitment to help make a difference by taking the bull  by the horn and stepping on the toe of the powers-that-be when the need arises. Bravo, Governor and Godspeed. Rest assured that all decent and conscientious Nagas are with you all the way. And by the way, ignore the rubbish of cheeky denials, untenable justifications and self-acquittals (as if all Nagas are morons)  and the subjective and judgemental discussions by those who imply through their fluent writings that the Nagas do not deserve a rosier  life and that we will be better off letting the present dispensation thrive.
