In many protest rallies, casualties and deaths always sparks up the cause of the movement. We are not ignorant of the happenings of the world neither are we ignorant of our own internal problems. Every issue should be resolved according to the norms and laws of a civilized society. The past history and the past mistakes should be taken into consideration to ease the chaos and normalize the situation of the present.
What we see in this present crisis is the need to resolve the issue at the earliest to build a better future for all the parties involved in the conflict. When an issue is sensitive we can expect emotional outburst from all the parties concerned. Situation can turn dangerous when emotions takes its toll on the ones involved in the conflicts and dialogue. Something we have to be aware of is that without self control the situation will only deteriote for the worst. You will find all the evidences of the truth in all the books of history.
There comes a time in our life when we have to accept the truth and work for the betterment of our own people. A leader who believes in the power of truth will always pursue peace, progress and prosperity through honest means. It is to our knowledge that our future depends on the decisions we make now. If we pretend to be unaware of the problems of our people, the final outcome will result in the deaths of many. We donít need to wage a war to win a war. But we need to resolve issues and conflicts through talks to avoid a war.
The leader of a great nation is not necessarily the leader of other nations. He can either be a friend or a fiend of other nations. Wars result in hatred and destruction but successful talks results in mutual understanding and friendship. The great nations of the world did not prosper through wars but they progressed because of their commitment to world peace. Taking into considerations the achievement of the world powers, every small state and nation should learn something from them.
Tragic happenings are uncalled for but it usually happens according to the nature of the circumstances. We resort to brutality when moments of unrest takes its toll on us. Itís sad that the lives of two young promising students had to come to an end in a tragic way. When a protest is peaceful violence shouldnít be initiated against the protestors. In the midst of this turmoil, it is important that we re-assess the situation and learn from our own mistakes. It was reported that the mother of one of the deceased was a paralytic. From a human point of view itís sad that the poor mother will be grieving over the death of her son her whole life through. The outcome would have been different had the security forces not resorted to violence.
A wrong is a wrong and a wrong can never be made right but it can be forgiven. When a conflict arises instances like this can be expected. We shall live to hear and witness the final outcome of the political issue. A thorn in the flesh that is what we are to them. As long as this integration issue drags on, the growth and prosperity of their state will be affected. According to the analysis of different individuals, majority are of the opinion that the right step should be taken to fulfill the identity of the nagas that our neighbors may experience success in their own state. In view of this, it will be wise if the government removes the thorn from its flesh. For as long as the thorn remains, the wounds will not be healed.
It is not as easy as it sounds, but I pray that the government will do what will be best for the growth and prosperity of their own state. The recent happenings at the southern areas are the signs for all that are yet to come. If we are always critical of each other we will be a stumbling block to each other. So at this critical juncture it is important that we pursue truth and peace through careful analyzing and by taking into consideration the past history of the places and territories which are considered disturbed. The earlier the issue is resolved, the faster our nation will progress. The things we do now will determine the level of success we experience five years from now. Do the needful while you can and get he benefits of it in the years ahead. Pray for peace growth and prosperity as you strive to build a better future for the people of your generation and the generation that follows. The world wants you to prosper and we want you to progress in all your endeavors. The world is watching us.
