Power Blues

We have no electricity
And we don’t have Ecstasy,
Those of happy places, of foreign lands;
No worries, though, we always fuck for homelands.
In our world marked by darkness,
We care for nothingness;
Because we have marijuana
We have atingba and ashaba.
Let the power cut take away all the light;
We have, for the challenge, all the might.
On this load-shedding evening,
Around the place for drinking and smoking
We have what it takes for our generation
All those that take to serve for our degeneration.
Atingba: A country brew, some kind of a local beer 

Ashaba: Another country beverage, it is the harder stuff

Read Manipuri poems and rants on 
A picture is worth a thousand words. Definitely. This picture is what Imphal is.

Imphal image, literally

Hitting the century on Facebook and
Twitter is quite a nice feeling
