Manipur became a part of India on 15 October 1949. Most Manipuris viewed it as ?Annexation?, while the then India Government termed it as ?Merger?. It was but a historical reality, which none could avoid. Nevertheless, Manipur is now a part of India. It needs to strengthen itself under the Constitution of India. Here, its worthy of recall that Manipur was an independent entity before its merger into India on 15th October, 1949. Manipur was well ahead of India in having a constitution of its own and in electing its own democratic legislative assembly. Manipuris are still proud of the status they had vis-?-vis India.

In the scriptures, we often encounter the description of the Nature of Brahman as "Nirakara/formless", "ekam/one", "Nirguna" "Anejat/unmoving" etc. People have debated over centuries about these descriptions. Some claiming Nirguna to be higher than Saguna and some claiming Saguna as being higher to Nirguna.But all such debates are meaningless as they are based on a faulty understanding of the scriptures.The whole confusion arises due to ignorance of the difference between the Paramarthika Dasha and the Vyavaharika dasha.
Often, it is heard that Hinduism is suffering from image-crisis and that Hindus should embark on aggressive marketing of their religion. Is Hinduism really suffering from image-crisis? The answer is yes. But is this the disease itself? No, it is only a symptom of a deeper disease. Hence, it cannot be solved by any "aggressive marketing".
The basic philosophy of any religion relies on the acceptance of the existence of God and that of atheism on the rejection of such existence. Among theists, there have been lengthy debates, arguments and fights regarding what this God constitutes if it exists? Whether God is one or many? Whether it is God or it is god (Upper case and lower case 'G')?
