"IF you believe in doctor, nothing is wholesome; if you believe in soldier, nothing is safe" and now, if you believe in 'Young Witty & Scurrilous' everything is ... yet to be in the right direction.

Dr. Sahib, help me recount this old saying, tells me that the fest has arrived and diabetes may be smiling on our folks. This fest and the people, have made the disease opportune to start its attack in her guerilla warfare style. What ail him are the increasing needs to go along with 'Rosgulla' for 'Ningol Chak-Kouba' goers.

My men, I told you, 'if you believe in doctor nothing is wholesome', as in this super wonderful season surrounded by gala, Dr. Shabi was concern about 'Liena-Tinna' (diseases). But, indeed, he was right in his own literary-sense as he doesn't want his kinfolks to swallow all those bitter pills, and live a life of sugar coating off.

Indeed, he wanted to ring the alarm bell about the most common form of diabetes that occurs as a result of excess sugar and cholesterol in the body. Sometimes, they refer it as Type-2 Diabetes or non-insulin dependent that have almost affected 85-90 percent of all people with diabetes, this is what a research data speaks. In the literal sense, the point that we could catch, is the sugar-gravy present in the XL Size 'Rosgulla Can' doesn't heighten the sweetness of the celebration nor it sweeten more relationships.

If the goddess of the fest happen to know that 'Rosgulla' has become a part of Ningol Chak-Kouba goers besides Coconuts, Apples, Bananas, Biscuits, Oranges, etc, etc. Then, 'Ningol Chak-kouba' will sing the Blues.

This fest has become renown even to the foreigners. The Burmese coconuts and Oranges dealer at Tamu of Myanmar also became aware of the fest. With a smiling face, she renders her import-service aggressively to meet her expectation to peak the sale graph of her coconuts and oranges towards the state. And, even the Apple agents from Shimla landed to out-reach his service at the door step, in respect of the fest that would be strengthen the loving bonds. His preparedness to scoop a handsome amount of money from the fest has also fulfilled.

On other side, when the season knocks the fest door for its arrival; the preparedness for 'Ego Competitions' begins amongst the celebrators. The fest then flicks, like a platform where everyone can flaunt their apostrophes. Our sisters, in-laws, mothers, etc. shows their hidden talents of face make-up skills. What not they put-up thickly from face to toe, starting from Gali-based-lips stick and nail polish to compact-powders and mascara's of Oriflame, Avon, Maybelline, Mary K, etc. The by passer in the streets says they just can't cross the streets due to the glittering reflections of the glitz and glamz.

I told you, 'if you believe in 'Young Witty & Scurrilous' everything is ... yet to be in the right direction'. The fest that should be institutionalized as a cultural theory, a social institution, a global learning site, about strengthening and reinforcing the kin and a platonic relationship between men and women is moving towards an untoward direction.

The Goddess of 'Ningol Chak-kouba' sings the blues, by seeing all this inversion of her meaning. After noticing, what's been happening, 'Ningol Chak-kouba' sings the blues. She has felt that this auspicious day tends to draw a line that threatens to divide among peoples, who have and have not.

Tagline: "The competition that doesn't honour with medals for winning is Ego Competition"

Newsperson: A one day sharing-caring session amongst the journos was held on 16 Nov, as part of World Press Day Observation. Sharing at the function, a senior journo told the other cub journos about his experience of celebrating every festival with Press Release, News Story, etc.
