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

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 […]

In Appreciation…of the Simple Pleasures of Life

By   /  November 5, 2016  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on In Appreciation…of the Simple Pleasures of Life

Hello folks, I believe that life has so much to give if only we cared to give a little thought to the most minuscule of joys (which we’d find so much of) only if we’d stop looking at the looming discomforts and discontents. So here I am, to share with you the simplest joys in […]

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.
