From the Journal of a Jurist

Image
The typist was typing on a typewriter
The police had picked up a suspect
The crook had killed a hen
Animal annihilators, bloody bastards!
Send him to a prison for life.

The typist has disappeared
The police have vanished
A minister have murdered a man
It could have been an error and it’s only a rumour
Multiply five times the product of infinity and immortality.

Now everybody’s at sea—as confused as our king
But it was clearly scribbled on the wall:
A bucket of crap on the books of law and crime
Or let the world grow in the name of the masters.

—Concluded.


From the Almanac of an Activist

Image
Activism is essentially a political form and a method of operating suited to liberal reformism that is being pushed beyond its own limits and used for revolutionary purposes. The activist role in itself must be problematic for those who desire social revolution.

Existentialism 101: A Graphical Design of ‘Meaninglessness’

Image
Quotes by philosophers, authors, psychologists, playwrights and others on existentialism




Do you know the meaning of life? Since the beginning of human time, men and women have been in quest for an answer to this question, but with little success. I believe the origin of universe holds all the answer that we may find someday or maybe not. One of the prominent thoughts in existentialism is that we create individual meanings to this question and that is all it appears in the highly limited mind of human beings, which exists in a purportedly infinite universe.

Existentialism is one of the subparts of human thoughts that deals in a meaningless universe, however there are slight differences. One of them is Nihilism, which says ‘there is no intrinsic meaning in the universe and that it’s pointless to try to construct our own as a substitute’. The second is the concept of Absurdism. It states the ‘our search for meaning is inherently in conflict with the actual lack of meaning, but that one s…

on the great mission of saving the mankind and my upcoming great fix for the evening while travelling on the great asshole express

Image
do i need to be with my friends—?
—but they are busy on the street
burning ten tyres completely a day
and the leikai teacher told me i have to mobilise
and the closest i know to this term was mobil oil
but i’m also busy on a treat here, fixing shots
the stuffs had arrived afresh from burma a day before

wise men arrive for the preaching
wise women arrive for the preaching
and all i can hear are noises through my ass
just like i had missed a shot yesterday, but i didn’t
it sounds constipation, but it might only be your great imagination
your tonics of bloody lies, my fix of mere white powders
these are just endless journeys of the Asshole Express



Police Protocol in Pictures

Image
The police may or may not be concerned with:

★   investigation of a reported offence
★   taking the necessary action according to the rule of law
★   notifying the accused’s family
★   following up on any alleged criminal behaviour that could seriously threaten the safety and security of any person or property.

It’s getting too much. The most important code of conduct is to serve the political class. The end.














Blame Game People Play

The Manipur Assembly today resolved to withdraw the Manipur Regulation of Visitors, Tenants and Migrant Workers Bill 2015, four months after it was passed, under intense public pressure. While moving the resolution, chief minister Okram Ibobi assured the House that a fresh bill would be introduced and passed within three months to regulate the entry of outsiders and protect the indigenous people.
—15 July 2015, The Telegraph


As always Manipur is in its favourite cauldron of crises today. The latest has been the agitation over the non-implementation of the Inner Line Permit (ILP) system spearheaded by the Meiteis in the Imphal valley. Civil society organisations are insistent, though the government has been doing what it knows best: nothing. Popular movements have been in full swing for the last three–four years but there is no solution in sight.

Just to be clear, the ILP system is essential for the vulnerable ethnic groups. The reason is simple. The influx of non-indigenous people ha…
