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 […]

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) […]

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 […]

Time to Set the Record Straight

By   /  October 19, 2016  /  Khekiye K Sema, Our Columnists  /  Comments Off on Time to Set the Record Straight

It does leave behind an unpleasant aftertaste as a retired bureaucrat becoming a critic of a system that one had once served. There was a time when bureaucracy commanded a healthy respect of political class because matured unmotivated technical guidance based on rules and regulations were the standard benchmark that mostly determined government actions.

Seeking answers upfront

By   /  May 19, 2016  /  Khekiye K Sema, Views & Reviews  /  Comments Off on Seeking answers upfront

The final departure of the headhunting generation, weaned under a strict traditional code of human dignity, honesty and honour as a way of life, was an eminent transition waiting to evolve with the advent of Christianity and the dawn of new enlightenment. The new generation of educated and semi-educated Naga leaders emerging immediately after the […]

Can Nagas help themselves?

By   /  March 9, 2016  /  Khekiye K Sema  /  Comments Off on Can Nagas help themselves?

Khekiye K. Sema “God helps those who help themselves”, so the saying goes. The pertinent question that follows is: “Are the Nagas honestly trying hard enough to help themselves to allow God to chip in?” If this question is directed towards an individual helping himself/ herself honestly or dishonestly in monitory terms, the obvious response […]

By   /  September 20, 2015  /  Khekiye K Sema  /  Comments Off on Speculative games: Pan-Naga Confederation: (PART IV)

Khekiye K. Sema Nagas… please note that we are racing against time. It has become all the more urgently imperative that we come out from our slumbering cocoon of unquestioning complacency and take a courageous rational road of honestly questioning what appears ambiguous at this critical juncture so that the well deliberated constructive opinion so […]

Khekiye K. Sema CONTINUED-23… He ‘accidentally’ swept aside his black leather jacket intentionally to let me have a glimpse of the pistol he was carrying and now in Sumi dialect said, “Noye khiu putsa ani keno ithi animo!?” (Do you know who you are speaking to). Of course it had to be a Sumi with […]

…Continued 4 I was now slated to work with Mr. I.K. Changkija the Additional Deputy Commissioner of Dimapur. The joining time was taken to settle the family down in the official allotted quarter. Calling on the controlling officer at the residence was now off my radar. I reported for duty and met Mr.I.K. Changkija in […]
