Of a Chore in a Happy Tone

By   /  January 14, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of a Chore in a Happy Tone

For Zeena Singh Color

As a reaction to an action – no face can remain glum ever, nor spirit never be lifted in response to the sound of music in the ear. It cheers a broken heart, unburdens a heavy load, breaks the spell of severe solemnity no matter how stern, and acts as a soothing balm to an […]

Of Sentimental Value

By   /  January 8, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of Sentimental Value

for-zeena-singh-color

Leaving the old behind I step into the New with dogged determination resolute and determined to hold fast, just as I do at the dawn of every New Year, to another resolution. To lose the squirrel in me it is, this time around. What is normally a struggle through the year for me I decide […]

Of The Labour of Love

By   /  December 17, 2016  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of The Labour of Love

for-zeena-singh-color

‘Singing for my supper’ it seemed like, or perhaps more to fulfill the adage ‘hard work pays good dividends’. That is exactly what we grew up in the knowledge of, living the reality come gift- receiving time – here it being birthdays in specific, Christmas at times, and the stray gift-for-no-reason at-all moments. I don’t […]

Stations abuzz

By   /  December 10, 2016  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Stations abuzz

for-zeena-singh-color

Some of the most appreciated of the sights and sounds that I would so look forward to were the ones I experienced on my journey by train. So keenly and zealously recorded and firmly stored, in a memory of one’s younger days does not erase so easily. The rush and fast forward amidst a cacophony […]

Blundering into Enemy Territory

By   /  December 3, 2016  /  Khekiye K Sema, OP-ED, Our Columnists  /  Comments Off on Blundering into Enemy Territory

The recent development on the issue of 33% Women Reservation (WR) has generated a rather uneasy scenario of our leaders taking recklessly short cuts and dangerously blundering into enemy territory blindfolded. Abandoning our only protective customary dao, spear and shield to ward off any other wayward forces that surround us could be a very costly […]

Of Unhurried Deliberate

By   /  November 26, 2016  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of Unhurried Deliberate

  The ring of bells …..a bell to wake up, another for meals, one for study hour, another for classes to begin and one to mark the end of a class period; a bell to assemble, a bell to pause for grace after meals ….. had always, from a young age, for me, been the […]

33% Women Reservation Hangups

By   /  November 21, 2016  /  Khekiye K Sema, OP-ED, Our Columnists  /  Comments Off on 33% Women Reservation Hangups

We the Naga people are sitting over a very controversial and complex issue of 33% Women Reservation which basically throws up two equally important fundamental subjects that we have no choice but to try and sensibly address: (1). The rights of women representation in Civic or any other Bodies in Naga society; and inter-related (2) […]

Preparation of Thanksgiving

By   /  November 19, 2016  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Preparation of Thanksgiving

  ‘Seven days of preparing our hearts for Thanksgiving!’ I read, and memories flooded my mind of what Harvest Thanks giving Day was for me as a child. It was the day when we gave up our fruit (served at Lunch) and brought it to church as an offering of Thanks, which then would be […]

A Political Limbo

By   /  November 14, 2016  /  Khekiye K Sema, Our Columnists  /  Comments Off on A Political Limbo

There are no two varied opinions in the minds of every breathing Naga worth his/her salt to emphatically want to end this 70 years old suffocating and torturous journey chained to a chaotic political limbo that is desperately retarding Nagas from attaining their full potentials in every field. Given a peaceful environment, Nagas are as […]

Of That Extra Mile

By   /  November 12, 2016  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of That Extra Mile

Crucial! predominantly, at this point in time. ‘Going that Extra Mile’, I would like to believe had its origin in Matthew Chapter 5 ,verse 41 of the Bible; An adaptation of Jesus’ commandment in the Sermon of the Mount ..which reads…..“And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.” Under the […]
