This is my very 1st podcast in Meitei-lon. Please enjoy the interview with Madam Saroj Nalini Ingudam, Retired Senior Grade Lecturer in Manipuri language and Literature from Thambal Marik College, Oinam, popularly known by Students of St. Joseph School and HRD Academy. She shares a very interesting journey of her experience being a teacher in Manipur comparing education system between Govt. School and private/mission School in Manipur. She shares little bit about the history of Ningol Chakouba and the changing trend with modern time.

    Very nostalgic….One of the few teachers whose lectures were loved and liked by all. The way madam mixes lessons with interesting anecdotes were an absolute treat. A very good story teller….I can almost picture her, standing in front of the class, with that effervescent smile, which she wore in every lecture she took.
