It’s been close to two decades. There is a stream of blood that lies dead in our veins. Immobile. Inactive.Ignorant.Ignored. It seems there is no remedy on how to de-clot this paralyzed blood. It also seems we don’t even seek a remedy.
We are happy as we are.
I am happy with my life. I go to office. Smile at my wife. Draw my salary. Watch cricket.
You are happy with your life. You go to office. Smile at your wife. Pet your kid. Watch cricket.
We are happy as we are. Mute!
So you and me, why question? Why ask? Why risk? Forget it.
Therefore collectively in our silence we discard anything that’s a risk. Eventually discarding our right to question, our right to justice, and our right to truth.
We love ‘self-peace’, therefore we sneak under silence like cowards when we see ‘external-violence’ (that goes beyond us) or injustice (that does not happen to us).
The country is being bombarded. We stay mute.
A convict becomes a Minister. We stay mute.
Politicians don’t work. We stay mute.
A 2 year old child is raped. We stay mute.
This Mute mode virus is deadlier than an HIV virus. It is a powerful social virus.
Are we like this? Always?
I suspect we are. If not, someone please explain, how can somebody assassinate in broad daylight a leader like Mr.Bimal Sinha and keep the issue at a volume bordering mute. I do not blame the politicians. I blame myself. I blame you.
You – the Bengalis, the Metei Manipuris, the Kokboroks, the Bishnupriya Manipuris for not speaking up, not asking, not raising a responsible issue.
Bimal Sinha was not just another power hungry Minister. He was a social worker, a humanist, a creative personality, a representative of the poor. He was no leader. He was a friend of the masses. They - the Bengalis, the Metei Manipuris, the Kokboroks, the Bishnupriya Manipuris, all ‘loved’ him.
Why was he killed? Who are ones behind his assassination?
You and I have a right to know.
Can someone tell us? The truth.
