Beautiful Dzukou lily blooming at Dzukou Valley, Manipur

Another year have passed, another season gone by. But without fail, the beautiful Dzukou lily appeared blooming beautifully at the expected time at Dzukou valley, Manipur, India. Many from far and near travelled and walked to get a glimpse of the beauty. And I still couldn’t make it this year too. Maybe another year, another season. I saw these pictures of Simon Laishram and he has kindly agreed to share with FindingTheVoices.

Happy New Year 2016

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year 2016.

The picture in our 2016 Calendar is the beautiful Dzukou valley of my native place, Manipur. A beautiful photograph taken by Loyangamba Khundongbam capturing the Dzukou lily with the green luscious hills at the backdrop. The Calendar Format is from e-pao.net and printed at Lumen World in Imphal, Manipur, a small memento for the family of FindingTheVoices. For those away from Imphal and not able to get the hard copy of the Calendar, I will be very happy if you will download this Calendar and make this your Calendar for 2016.

Born and raised in the violence-torn landscape of Manipur, I have a vision to promote and spread inspiring, empowering, educative & entertaining stories. I believe that we can create contents bringing the positive side of Manipur. I believe we can do this together by finding the voices, voices which needs to be heard and shared, voices of the people, people all over the world. I believe that these voices will bring a change and connect all of us.

We are in our 4th year of pod casting and progressing our content and productions with time, we have had a tremendous positive response from our viewers and listeners. And from the messages received from various age groups, our programs continues to touch our vision of getting our listeners and viewers inspired, educated, empowered and entertained. I believe that these stories will bring a change and positive thinking to many individuals. I believe that this will definitely contribute to change the scenery of the conflict and violence-torn to peace and progress in our society.

Thanks to each and everyone for your support. Happy New Year 2016 and to more Finding The Voices.

075 It’s all in the mind : The Lemongrass tea

The Lemongrass tea
A chilly morning,
With cold hands and feets,
Sipping hot lemongrass tea,
With soothing pena music playing,
Giving one the warmth,
Giving one the familiar taste,
Bringing the calmness,
Taking one to silence,
Watching the world,
The world with people trampling,
Living life in their own terms.
