10 golden rules to become rich!

Once you decide to put your money to work to build long-term wealth, you have to decide, not whether to take risk, but what kind of risk you wish to take. Here are 10 investing rules that can make you rich:

1. There’s no escaping risk

Once you decide to put your money to work to build long-term wealth, you have to decide, not whether to take risk, but what kind of risk you wish to take.

Yes, money in a savings account is dollar-safe, but those safe dollars are apt to be substantially eroded by inflation, a risk that almost guarantees you will fail to reach your wealth goals.

And yes, money in the stock market is very risky over the short-term, but, if well-diversified, should provide remarkable growth with a high degree of consistency over the long term.

2. Buy right and hold tight

The most critical decision you face is arriving at the proper allocation of assets in your investment portfolio — stocks for growth of capital and growth of income, bonds for conservation of capital and current income.

Once you get your balance right, then just hold tight, no matter how high a greedy stock market flies, nor how low a frightened market plunges. Change the allocation only as your investment profile changes. Begin by considering a 50/50 stock/bond-cash balance, then raise the stock allocation if:

You have many years remaining to accumulate wealth.
The amount of capital you have at stake is modest.
You don’t have much need for current income from your investments.
You have the courage to ride out the stock market booms and busts with reasonable equanimity.
As these factors are reversed, reduce the 50 per cent stock allocation accordingly.

3. Time is your friend, impulse your enemy

Think long term, and don’t allow transitory changes in stock prices to alter your investment program. There is a lot of noise in the daily volatility of the stock market, which too often is ‘a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing’.

Stocks may remain overvalued, or undervalued, for years. Realize that one of the greatest sins of investing is to be captured by the siren song of the market, luring you into buying stocks when they are soaring and selling when they are plunging.

Impulse is your enemy. Why? Because market timing is impossible. Even if you turn out to be right when you sold stocks just before a decline (a rare occurrence!), where on earth would you ever get the insight that tells you the right time to get back in? One correct decision is tough enough. Two correct decisions are nigh on impossible.

Time is your friend. If, over the next 25 years, stocks produce a 10% return and a savings account produces a 5% return, $10,000 would grow to $108,000 in stocks vs. $34,000 in savings. (After 3% inflation, $54,000 vs $16,000). Give yourself all the time you can.

4. Realistic expectations: the bagel and the doughnut

These two different kinds of baked goods symbolize the two distinctively different elements of stock market returns.

It is hardly farfetched to consider that investment return — dividend yields and earnings growth — is the bagel of the stock market, for the investment return on stocks reflects their underlying character: nutritious, crusty and hard-boiled.

By the same token, speculative return — wrought by any change in the price that investors are willing to pay for each dollar of earnings — is the spongy doughnut of the market, reflecting changing public opinion about stock valuations, from the soft sweetness of optimism to the acid sourness of pessimism.

The substantive bagel-like economics of investing are almost inevitably productive, but the flaky, doughnut-like emotions of investors are anything but steady — sometimes productive, sometimes counterproductive.

In the long run, it is investment return that rules the day. In the past 40 years, the speculative return on US stocks has been zero, with the annual investment return of 11.2% precisely equal to the stock market’s total return of 11.2% per year.

But in the first 20 of those years, investors were sour on the economy’s prospects, and a tumbling price-earnings ratio provided a speculative return of minus 4.6% per year, reducing the nutritious annual investment return of 12.1% to a market return of just 7.5%. From 1981 to 2001, however, the outlook sweetened, and a soaring P/E ratio produced a sugary 5% speculative boost to the investment return of 10.3%.

Result: The market return leaped to 15.3% — double the return of the prior two decades.

The lesson: Enjoy the bagel’s healthy nutrients, and don’t count on the doughnut’s sweetness to enhance them.

5. Why look for the needle in the haystack? Buy the haystack!

Experience confirms that buying the right stocks, betting on the right investment style, and picking the right money manager — in each case, in advance — is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Investing in equities entails four risks: stock risk, style risk, manager risk, and market risk. The first three of these risks can easily be eliminated, simply by owning the entire stock market — owning the haystack, as it were — and holding it forever.

Owning the entire stock market is the ultimate diversifier. If you can’t find the needle, buy the haystack.

6. Minimize the croupier’s take

The resemblance of the stock market to the casino is not far-fetched. Yes, the stock market is a positive-sum game and the gambling casino is a zero-sum game . . . but only before the costs of playing each game are deducted. After the heavy costs of financial intermediaries (commissions, management fees, taxes, etc.) are deducted, beating the stock market is inevitably a loser’s game. Just as, after the croupiers’ wide rake descends, beating the casino is inevitably a loser’s game. All investors as a group must earn the market’s return before costs, and lose to the market after costs, and by the exact amount of those costs.

Your greatest chance of earning the market’s return, therefore, is to reduce the croupiers’ take to the bare-bones minimum. When you read about stock market returns, realize that the financial markets are not for sale, except at a high price.

The difference is crucial. If the market’s return is 10% before costs, and intermediation costs are approximately 2%, then investors earn 8%. Compounded over 50 years, 8% takes $10,000 to $469,000. But at 10%, the final value leaps to $1,170,000 — nearly three times as much . . . just by eliminating the croupier’s take.

7. Beware of fighting the last war

Too many investors — individuals and institutions alike — are constantly making investment decisions based on the lessons of the recent, or even the extended, past. They seek technology stocks after they have emerged victorious from the last war; they worry about inflation after it becomes the accepted bogeyman, they buy bonds after the stock market has plunged.

You should not ignore the past, but neither should you assume that a particular cyclical trend will last forever. None does. Just because some investors insist on ‘fighting the last war,’ you don’t need to do so yourself. It doesn’t work for very long.

8. Sir Isaac Newton’s revenge on Wall Street — return to the mean

Through all history, investments have been subject to a sort of law of gravity: What goes up must go down, and, oddly enough, what goes down must go up. Not always of course (companies that die rarely live again), and not necessarily in the absolute sense, but relative to the overall market norm.

For example, stock market returns that substantially exceed the investment returns generated by earnings and dividends during one period tend to revert and fall well short of that norm during the next period. Like a pendulum, stock prices swing far above their underlying values, only to swing back to fair value and then far below it.

Another example: From the start of 1997 through March 2000, Nasdaq stocks (+230%) soared past NYSE-listed stocks (+20%), only to come to a screeching halt. During the subsequent year, Nasdaq stocks lost 67% of their value, while NYSE stocks lost just 7%, reverting to the original market value relationship (about one to five) between the so-called ‘new economy’ and the ‘old economy.’

Reversion to the mean is found everywhere in the financial jungle, for the mean is a powerful magnet that, in the long run, finally draws everything back to it.

9. The hedgehog bests the fox

The Greek philosopher Archilochus tells us, ‘The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one great thing.’ The fox — artful, sly, and astute — represents the financial institution that knows many things about complex markets and sophisticated marketing.

The hedgehog — whose sharp spines give it almost impregnable armour when it curls into a ball — is the financial institution that knows only one great thing: long-term investment success is based on simplicity.

The wily foxes of the financial world justify their existence by propagating the notion that an investor can survive only with the benefit of their artful knowledge and expertise. Such assistance, alas, does not come cheap, and the costs it entails tend to consume more value-added performance than even the most cunning of foxes can provide.

Result: The annual returns earned for investors by financial intermediaries such as mutual funds have averaged less than 80% of the stock market’s annual return.

The hedgehog, on the other hand, knows that the truly great investment strategy succeeds, not because of its complexity or cleverness, but because of its simplicity and low cost. The hedgehog diversifies broadly, buys and holds, and keeps expenses to the bare-bones minimum.

The ultimate hedgehog: The all-market index fund, operated at minimal cost and with minimal portfolio turnover, virtually guarantees nearly 100% of the market’s return to the investor.

In the field of investment management, foxes come and go, but hedgehogs are forever.

10. Stay the course: the secret of investing is that there is no secret

When you consider these previous nine rules, realize that they are about neither magic and legerdemain, nor about forecasting the unforecastable, nor about betting at long and ultimately unsurmountable odds, nor about learning some great secret of successful investing.

In fact, there is no great secret, only the majesty of simplicity. These rules are about elementary arithmetic, about fundamental and unarguable principles, and about that most uncommon of all attributes, common sense.

Owning the entire stock market through an index fund — all the while balancing your portfolio with an appropriate allocation to an all bond market index fund — with its cost-efficiency, its tax-efficiency, and its assurance of earning for you the market’s return, is by definition a winning strategy.

But if only you follow one final rule for successful investing, perhaps the most important principle of all investment wisdom: Stay the course!

[Excerpt from Investing Rules from the Masters by John C. Bogle, a doyen of the American mutual fund industry who was designated by Fortune magazine as one of US investment industry’s four ‘Giants of the 20th Century.’]

More attacks on Christians in Madhya Pradesh

22nd February 2008:

Christian participating in a lent meeting were attacked in the Kosmi area of Balaghat district of MP by Bajrang Dal people who then dragged Christians to the police station to lodge an FIR against them.

The Bajrang Dal people attacked without provocation and they were constantly shouting, “Dharmantaran Band Karo.” (Stop Conversions).

Mr. Sunil Marawi and Brother Tom George from Kerala are the ones who have suffered physical injuries the most.

The police took complaints from both the parties and FIR’s were lodged the next day but no one has been arrested till now.

24th February 2008

Masihi Mandir Church in Chawni area Indore was vandalized by a group of around 125 RSS people who kept shouting “Jo Hindu hit ki baat karega woh desh par raj karega.” (The one who will talk of Hindu favor will rule India).

Since the Church was not having any service that time and was locked they damage though extensive did not include any human casualties apart from one Christian boy who was roughed up by 5 Hindutva goons.

The police has arrested 7 people so far.

The Masihi Mandir Church is under litigation for some time now with 4 parties laying claim to the property of the Church. Pray that this incident will unite them and they see sense in standing together at this time.

In another incident in MP, Father Joseph Kappilparampil from Ujjain diocese was arrested following complaint from the students and was allegedly beaten up by a mob.

HE is heading the AMBODIYA parish, under which the Sanjeevan girls hostel at Ujjain is also being run.

He was released on bail on February 14th after his lawyer argued that the charges did not warrant remand.

Pastor Yashwant Paul granted bail

Pastor Yashwant Paul of Samarpan Ministries in Ghaziabad has just received his bail from the High Court of Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh, India.

Rev. Yashwant Paul has been in jail since January 21st on false charges of fraud in a case that has been going on for several years. There has been threats of arrest against his wife Monica also, but she has been safe for the time being.

Since there is no clause of an Anticipatory Bail in the state of Uttar Pradesh, it makes matters very complicated for innocent victims of false cases.

The bail was granted yesterday but the bail papers have not yet arrived and since the court is closed tomorrow because of a public holiday, Pastor Yashwant will be home either day after tomorrow or latest by Saturday this week.

God performed a miracle in a way that his file moved quickly than anticipated in the High Court.

The family is grateful for your prayers and concern. Please do continue to pray for Sister Monica’s bail as well. The going gets really tough for them as the children are having examinations as well.

Pastor Yashwant needs to be prayed specifically for, that he may not lose his confidence in God and that he would return from the jail, stronger for the Lord and determined for his work in India.

More Details..

Arrested Pastor waits for bail

Yashwant Paul an independent Pastor was arrested in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh on January 21st on charges of ‘fraudulently trying ‘to convert a person to Christianity with false promises of employment.

The police has charged Pastor Paul with charges of fraud with reference to a case registered against him earlier in 2004.

The Pastor’s wife Mrs. Monica Paul is also named as co-accused in the case Under the Sections 420 and 407 of the Indian Penal Code.

The complainant, Mr. Ramesh Chand has accused Rev. Paul and his wife of having paid to him a sum of Rs. 20,000/- and for promising him a job if he converted to Christianity. However, Rev. Paul and his wife
have vehemently denied the charges.

Rev. Paul is currently lodged in the District Jail, Ghaziabad, UP, after his bail plea was rejected by the magistrate and the Sessions court. He will, after 14 days appeal before the High Court for bail.

Please pray for him, his wife and his children as they go through this trying time.

The swaying Manipur (Integrity vs Integration)

By R Rungsung

For the past years and today Manipur with various Communities and Meitei as the Commanding one, has been swaying forward and backward creating periodical uncertain situation that concerns the future of Meiteis and others. Leaders and enlightened lots have been reminding us of stark realities. We are in danger of ignorance. What worries us all is whether the warning in media, such as, violence, bloodshed, uprising of June 18, 2001, etc. will have any effect. I hope it does. Other tough wordings like: Secession, promoting enmity, tension, hatred, etc., among the communities appeared in the media with full force that distinctly directed towards the Nagas integration. More to it were insulting words such as, “Nagas can freely leave Manipur and join your Nagaland without taking an inch of Manipur land.” All sound authoritative.

All the above quoted words (associated with emotions and sentiments or motives) carry the ultimate intended reality that purely translated and interpreted the meaning as: (1) manipur belongs to Meiteis, (2) What the Meiteis think, want and play the others must follow, (3) Meiteis will have final say in all that happen in Manipur, (4) Meiteis being the majority have the sole authority over all others. If this presentation (an argument against Meiteis) is wrong and not palatable then all the forceful and threatening words quoted above are bogus and empty sounding. But I take it otherwise. They are real. This is my sincere observation and not allegation.

Taking all this into consideration one has to ponder and digest minutely to avert confrontation and undesirable consequences in times to come. As we all know the outcome of emotional banging against one another. Here we are the last ones to receive (attain) world civilisation. We know the global happenings.

On the other hand the new administration in Nagaland (due in this March) will bother with the issue of integration – that is how long it will take to find its foot to end Indo-Naga problem. It is the collective issue to all Nagas irrespective of areas and directly strikes the neighbouring States and thus becomes one of the bitterest pills to swallow. We are all in it and none can escapes from it by pointing accusing finger one another. Nagas living in Imphal valley with well established properties do not matter much. For some permanent and for some secondary. The choice is left to one’s best wishes and Nagas as a whole will not force or dictate (so far I know as had happened in the past everywhere in the world). Nagas can do without them. As such valley people claiming this and that in that connection bears has nothing to do with integration. Moreover, Nagas need not quarrel with Meiteis. We need friendship and love.

Passing and adopting resolutions in assembly or council or any organisations for integrity and against integration will have no effect nor will it solve this issue. For, there exist two distinct facts. One, Meiteis will depart from the demand of integrations. Two, the psyche of Meiteis is dipped in the fear of becoming smaller entity if the hill areas have to be scrapped out from the present State of Manipur, leading integrated Nagas to a better life than the present one. This is the true picture of Manipur today. So if we do not make haste in dealing with sanctity of mind the emotional attitude it is likely leading to catastrophe.

The situation in all fronts is in turmoil. Decades of mistrust and suspicion between majority and minority are seeded deep. Knowing the economics-insensitive and ignorance of hill people, Imphal valley has been usurping all wealth bestowed by Delhi. Such selfish trend will continue and thus the spirit of cohesiveness and coexistence fails to work for good and Manipur’s stature will remain unchanged. Nagas cannot change the mindset of Meiteis since the approach and dealing of the issue is not based on brotherly term but always presenting the grouch directly to Delhi totally ignoring the Naga’s rights that naturally leads to parallelism. The approach is singular and not plural. The world is pluralistic in approach in the realm of national identity.

Such move by valley people to curb Nagas movement will further divide the road and lengthen the shadow of mistrust and suspicion questioning each other’s motives, belittling of what other is doing and, worst of all, refusing to deal in fairness. The only hope is if the attitude changes at that moment. But will it? I hope not. The valley people are naturally secularistic thinking lot where hill people are religious thinking lot and the two never meet. Defining the resources of Manipur, valley is almost empty — no minerals except deficit paddy products and supplemented by outside products whereas hill areas are virgin and abounded with minerals.

Nagas should not rely on the past mistake but rather forget it and look forward for an answer by taking into account the interests of the people. Division Vs Unity, separation vs integration (integrity) are global movements we witnessed in the past and are still witnessing even today. No Delhi or any other Governments can or should try to impose feigned remedies that will only add fuel to the seed of hatred among the people. We can and must pursue progress (solution without confrontation) through the spirit of cooperation.

If we are to build bridges to solve the problem that confronts us today, we must first recognise and respect each other’s interest so that we can share responsibility towards reaching our goals.

Let us reason and act together. Blaming Delhi and accusing Nagas will not lead to peaceful solution. A play in a theatre depicted as, “you can physically win my body but you cannot conquer my heart.”

India physically conquered Nagaland but the heart of Nagas remain as before.

ANSAM flays Govt’s stand on NIT construction

Newmai News Network

Imphal, Feb 28: While coming down heavily on the state government pertaining to the land acquisition impasse over the construction of National Institute of Technology (NIT) and other issues, the All Naga Students’ Association, Manipur (ANSAM) has termed the dealings of Manipur government as “dictatorial democracy” alleging that the state government has failed to respect the sentiments and the rights of the minorities of Manipur on various issues.

ANSAM president Paul Langhu in a lengthy statement issued to NNN said that Manipur being a state of composite cultures and ethnic groups, it is the bounden responsibilities of the government to settle issues confronting the state with right approach for social peace in the land.

Decrying the government decision of establishing the National Institute of Technology (NIT) at Langol-Lamphelpat area in Imphal despite stiff opposition put up from the common people by “forcibly evicting the residents”, the ANSAM statement alleged that the government is exposing ‘dictatorial democracy’. It also said that acquiring common people’s land for the state project without obtaining prior consents of the affected land owners is suppressing the democratic rights to ownership of the common people.

Such approach and attitude is drifting apart the relations between the people and the powers that be, maintained the statement while urging the government to respect the human values. Putting across its opposition to the “sinister design” of the government in trying to occupy private land “forcibly” for the construction of NIT, the ANSAM statement also conveyed its solidarity to the affected land owners of Langol, Imphal.

Perturbed by the policy of the state government in perpetually “ignoring the interest of the hill people”, the statement of the Naga students’ body also voiced concern “at the attempt of the state government to discreetly deny reservation policy” in the recent recruitment of Ayush Doctors under the National Rural Health Mission Society. It further alleged that out that out of the 40 posts filled recently, no reservation policy has been adopted by the state agency in the recruitment process, besides “denying genuine” tribal applicants. The ANSAM then appealed to the elected representatives of Manipur legislative assembly to raise the issue in an appropriate forum.

Further coming down on the “encroachment of scheduled areas” under the Autonomous District Council, the ANSAM said that the encroachment of scheduled areas under ADC and acquisition of villages of Hill districts under Panchayat election 2007 is tantamount to direct assault to the rights of land ownership of tribals. The statement said that even the district re-organization file of 1980 requisited by the revenue department of Imphal has not been returned to the respective district headquarters. Democratic approach by the ANSAM and Kuki Students’ Organization (General Headquarters) (KSO-GHQ) in the matter is yet to receive attention from the state government, the statement said while adding that the Manipur government is deafening its ears to the plight of the people. ANSAM also urged social organizations and armed groups to uphold mutual understanding .

NITE site

By Our Staff Reporter

IMPHAL, Feb 28:At least ten faculty members of Manipur University have voiced their strong opposition to the plans of the Govt to locate the NIT in any of the two districts of Imphal. In a signed statement, the ten faculty members said that though they welcome the NIT they have reservations about locating the same in any of the said two districts. Such institutes should be dovetailed to the developmental goals of the region, they reasoned and added that for academic and other developmental reasons, the institute should be appropriately located in any district other than the two Central districts of Imphal East and Imphal West.

Demands amounting to 150 crores passed

By Our Staff Reporter

IMPHAL, Feb 28: A total amount of Rs 150,46,22,000 on four different demands was passed by the State Assembly today. The total amount includes Rs 8,81,25,000 for Transport, Rs 105,61,42,000 for development scheduled tribes and scheduled castes and Rs 3,27,79,200 for Veterinary and Animal Husbandry (dairy farming).

While discussing the demands MLA Awangbow noted that there was bus service between district headquarters and sub-divisional headquarters. He called upon the Government to resume the bus service in public interest.

He also sought attention of the relevant Ministers to build a bus terminus in every district headquarters, increase scholarship of tribal students and to make veterinary hospitals in hill districts properly functional. MLA Khasim Ruivah expressed apprehension that the Ukhrul ITI may be shifted as there is no staff in the institute.

Responding to the motion, Transport Minister L Jayantakumar clarified that the MSRTC was abolished as it incurred heavy deficits rather than earning profits. Nevertheless, he acknowledged the necessity of keeping a State owned transport system. He also assured to look into the proposal to revive MSRTC.

Stating that expansion of Imphal Airport is a major initiative of the Government, Jayantakumar informed that contract work for installation of machineries neces- sary of night landing has been awarded.

Labour and Employment Minister Ph Parijat informed the House that efforts are on establish an ITI at Jiribam with intake capacity of 132 at the cost of Rs 4.5 crores.

Stating that the State Government has enacted 25 labour laws, Parijat conveyed that the Government is checking whether the laws are being implemented properly or not.

Veterinary and Tribal Minister DD Thaisii claimed that out of 153 veterinary hospitals, 105 hospitals are functional at present.

In spite of the shortage of man power in Veterinary Department, many farms under it have been making great improvements.

Moreover, efforts are on to build hospitals of estimated cost of Rs 1 crore in every hill district, Thaisii said.

HSLC, HSSLC exams, Addl power supply assured

By Our Staff Reporter

IMPHAL, Feb 28 : In view of the upcoming HSLC and HSSLC examinations, the State Power Department has decided to activate the Leimakhong Heavy Fuel Based Power Plant to supplement the existing power supply by 11 MW despite the high cost of generating power from the said plant.

In a statement, the Chief Engineer of the Power Department said that the decision was taken in the interest of the students and reminded the consumers that the cost per unit of the Plant is Rs 12.5 p.

Keeping aside the economic feasibility of supplying the power from the plant, the decision to activate it was taken in public interest, said the Chief Engineer and added that the present cost of the Furnace Oil to operate the units has increased 5 folds from the time of commissioning the plant and also the production cost.

The production cost at the time of commissioning the plant was Rs 2.50 per unit, reminded the Chief Engineer.

Taking these factors into consideration, the Department has appealed to the consumers to use energy efficient items, use electricity strictly according to the requirements and to clear all pending electricity bills as done in the case of school fees, van fare, mobile recharge and telephone bills, etc. The Elec- tricity Dept believes that it can fulfil its commitment only when it provides efficient service and the consu- mers reciprocate by judicio-usly paying their power tariff, he added.

MU pull-out crisis deepens

By Our Staff Reporter

IMPHAL, Feb 28 : Even as a meeting between the Vice Chancellor, Deans and representatives of the MU Tribal Students’ Union held today failed to resolve the crisis besieging the varsity on the issue of tribal students threatening to pull- out enmass, nine councillors of Manipur University Students’ Union have decided to give up their respective posts if the impasse persists.

While a MUTSU release informed that its representatives walked out of today’s meeting as ‘MUTSU finds no hope on the MU authorities,’ MUSU’s general secretary David Haokip has formally intimated the student body’s president regarding the tribal councillors decision to resign from the post of Department’s councillors and executive members in case MU authorities do not respond positively on the reservation issue within the specified deadline of March 1.

Stating that since the meeting with the VC and Deans could not bring about any definite solution to demands advocated by the ATSUM regarding reservation of tribal students/candidates in admission and job opportunities, the MUTSU said under such situation tribal students have no other alternative but to leave the University from march 1.

“For decades, the tribal students have been fighting for quota in the Manipur University and it is shameful indeed to be a scheduled tribe, but it is not a sin when all the rightful shares are all manipulated by other communities,” expressed the MUTSU release while asserting it would relentlessly strive to claim rights of the tribal students/candidates.

Contending that the VC had been repeatedly promising to do the needful without actually translating the assurance into action, MUTSU said tribal students could no longer tolerate such discriminatory attitude of MU authorities.

“if the VC of MU thinks he is not in a position to take the responsibility, he has no other alternative option but should resign from his post,” it added.

On the otherhand, extending solitary to cause of the tribal students, David Haokip said demand of MUTSU for amendment of the UGC guidelines on the matter of appointments to the teaching and non-teaching posts in accordance with the population ratio of Manipur is a genuine case.

Reminding all concerned that as representatives of tribal students in the University, the MUSU councillors/executive members strongly support the agitation and fully cooperate with the tribal issue, David maintained that if all the tribal students are to leave the varsity on the specified date they too have no reason to hold onto their respective posts.

Reiterating its aspiration that MU authorities redress plight and grievances of the tribal students as jointly pursued by the ATSUM and MUTSU, the MUSU general secretary highlighted to the president that in solidarity to demand for reservation of tribal candidates in the MU establishment the councillors and executive members have decided to join the pull-out agitation.

The councillors who appended their signature in the intimation note to the MUSU president includes the sports secretary (outdoor) Khongdiyang Gangmei, sports secretary (indoor) Poujanglung Panmei, literary secretary Leivon mangboi Kom, presidential committee S benai Kipgen, social & cultural secretary Rimlithang (aboi) Chothe, Widinibou (councillor), Lalgoulen Khongsai (councillor) and editor Echo Bungui Gangmei.

Tml students opt for BSEM

IMPHAL, Feb 28 : Unlike last year, majority of the students of Tamenglong district are likely to appear this year’s HSLC examination conducted by the Board of Secondary Education Manipur, which is scheduled from March 3.
