S03E12 FindingTheVoices with RK Ranendrajit: knowing your cultural roots and Identity of Manipur.

S03E12 FindingTheVoices with RK Ranendrajit, knowing your cultural roots and Identity of Manipur.
Guest Speaker :RK Ranendrajit, Social Activist, a former fighter pilot of the IAF and former editor of Freedom in Manipur.
Language: Interview in Meteilon
Location: Bir Tikendrajit Memorial complex, Manipur, India

We are at the residence of RK Ranendrajit, a former fighter pilot of the IAF and former editor of Freedom, an audacious newspaper of Manipur during the 90’s. In this episode, RK Ranendrajit expresses the need to teach the children more about the history of Manipur and the importance of building a good character. He also shared his concern about the fact that the children of today are slowly getting drifted away from their cultural roots. Although the children today have gained a good amount of knowledge in the field of science and technology, they certainly lack knowledge of the history of their own state. He says that a good character needs to be imparted to the growing children to teach them about the correct way of life and to provide them with not only education, but also wisdom and patriotism. He stresses the importance of knowing one’s cultural roots and history as this will give the children a sense of belongingness and understand their rights. This will in turn give them self-confidence and a reason to be proud of the state and country. RK Ranendrajit says that there are not many properly organized institutions that have a collection of information concerning the history Manipur, including which king ruled when and where. But a few local clubs and a few schools and colleges have started adopting the idea of teaching about the history of Manipur and hopefully more will follow.

S03E01 FindingTheVoices with Nameirakpam Chingkheinganba, conquering Mount Everest at the age of 16.

S03E01 FindingTheVoices: Conquering Mount Everest at the age of 16, an interview with Nameirakpam Chingkheinganba from Manipur.
Guest Speaker : Nameirakpam Chingkheinganba
Language: Interview in Meteilon
Location: Imphal, Manipur, India

Determined to achieve his father’s long lost dream of conquering Mount Everest in 1983, a young boy from Patsoi, Manipur took charge and scaled the mountain giant to stand high and mighty on top of the highest peak on the planet. At the age of 16, Nameirakpam Chingkheinganba went on the first ever North-East India Mount Everest Expedition in 2013 and took upon the 75 days long expedition risking his life and testing his will power and courage to show that anybody can overcome even the most challenging obstacles in life if they have the right attitude and positive mentality.
Chingkheinganba began training at the age of 9 and started developing his skills by first climbing hills of lesser height and then slowly adding on more in the course. He took on his first Adventure Course at Manipur Mountaineering Institute, Lamdang. After completing the course, Chingkheinganba got fueled with downright motivation upon finding out that his father once had a dream of climbing Mount Everest.
In this interview, Chingkheinganba talks about how a Mount Everest expedition takes place and the numerous challenges and life threatening risks a mountaineer faces during the mission. He tells the story of how he successfully completed the journey carrying limited food and oxygen and how he dealt with the dangerous depths, avalanches, crevasses and unnerving situations in the icy mountains. He also talks about the shocking count of lifeless bodies they came across lying on the frozen grounds in the Dead Zone!
Apart from mountaineering, Chingkheinganba also has other passions and future goals. He’s currently studying in Imphal College and wants to pursue further studies in Geography. And right now, you can imagine him riding his mountain bike day-in, day-out, and training very hard to realize his dream of becoming an Olympian in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
