Of Rain – 2

By   /  February 25, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of Rain – 2

In approximately the same time, two years ago, I saw the first showers of Rain after winter, in appreciation of its arrival at the dawn of springtime, had compared it to Hope…. saying…. “Hope is like the Rain… Hope is looking forward to a new beginning…… showers at the dawn of Spring spell Hope…Its sound […]

Of Love so Surreal – so Real

By   /  February 12, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of Love so Surreal – so Real

……Loved enough to be zeroed in up on, restructured re-shaped and beautified. I stand on training ground and look at every moment of opportune feeling totally indebted at been given the opportunity to encounter and sweat over exertions which I choose to take as wonderful experiences that give me greater know-how’s to becoming seamlessly ‘just […]

Of the Signed, Sealed and Delivered

By   /  January 28, 2017  /  Our Columnists, Zeena Singh  /  Comments Off on Of the Signed, Sealed and Delivered

Paper is now considered trash. …or is it? -The very question that popped into my mind, as I found myself elbow-deep into de-cluttering my piles of files and folders from the past. High school-day memoirs, college-day jot-down’s, bills and reminders, medical prescriptions and reports, things that you journey back with, allowing the mind to take […]

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

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

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

‘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

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) […]
