Source: Chronicle News Service

Senapati, January 30 2023: A two-day national seminar on "Unsung Heroes of NE India in India's freedom struggle" began at the auditorium of Mount Everest College, Senapati on Monday.

The seminar organised by Research Committee in collaboration with IQAC of the Mount Everest College commenced with Manipur University Department of History head Prof H Sudhirkumar Singh as the chairperson.

In his welcome note, vice principal of Mount Everest College Gonmei Meithuanlungpao stated that the seminar is aimed at exploring the unsung heroes of the region who risked their lives to free their people from social or spiritual bondage, financial or political bondage.

During the seminar, scholars and learned professors would talk about the unsung heroes and their contributions, he added.

Addressing the gathering, Prof Sudhirkumar stated that serious students of History will certainly notice the way changes are taking place in the historiographical trends in the last decade precisely because of the findings of historical researches from the promising young scholars.

An area that has pronouncedly emerged in the line of this historical initiative is the exploration of the sacrifice made by various freedom fighters of this region for the cause of freedom in the long- drawn struggle.

Noticeably, such contributions remained for quite a long time 'unexplored,' "under explored' or in the footnotes of historical pages.

All these new findings are not just an appreciation but an acknowledgement of the sacrifices freedom fighters have made.

All such contributions have unquestionably made the history of freedom struggle a comprehensive one, he said.

Dr Holkhongam Haokip, chairman Research Committee (Mount Everest College), highlighted the relevance of the seminar on the unsung heroes whose stories have been untouched and still remained untold, adding that most of the freedom fighters of the North East still remain unsung as their contributions have not found a place in the mainland histories till date, although there are so many to name them.

Technical session of the first day began with paper presentations from different scholars including Dr Samson S Chiru, principal Mount Everest College, on "Independent ethnic tribal policy in Manipur (Chiru context)"; Dr Mina Devi, guest faculty (Dept of Ancient History & Archaeology, Manipur University), on "Chingakham Sanajaoba and Kuki Rebellion, 1917-1919"; Dr Somorendro Singh, Asst Prof (Dept of Political Science, Tamenglong College) on "British Colonial policies and their impact in Manipur"; Dr L Letkhomang Haokip, Asst Prof (Dept of History, Raybum College, Churachandpur) on "Understanding of local support to INA: The role of Pu Semkhohao Haokip"; Dr Girmeihching Simte, Asst Prof (Dept of History, Raybum College) on "Historical representations of women in the Nationalist struggle'; Seikhomang Guite, PhD scholar (Manipur University) on " Fighting"; Moirangthem Boby Singh, research scholar (Dept of History, Manipur University) on "Contribution of local people to INA in struggle for Independence- A historical review"; and Dr Heisnam Budhichandra Singh, Asst Prof (Thambal Marik College, Oinam) on "Bir Tikendrajit - A Hero of Manipur".

The second day of the technical session will feature Dr Holkhongam Haokip presenting a paper on "Kuki Rebellion (1917-1920) and role of Pu Ngulkhup Haokip"; Dr Augustine, Asst Prof (Dept of Sociology, Mount Everest College, Senapati) on "Social conflict induced migration: A Manipur story"; Ningthoujam Lanchenba Meetei, research scholar (Dept of Political Science, Manipur University) on "British policies in Manipur after 1891"; Dr VS Sholounii Pou, Asst Prof (Dept of Political Science, Mount Everest College) on "Local Self-Government in tribal India: Issues and prospects"; W Charushilla Devi, Asst Prof (Dept of History) and W Asha Devi, Asst Prof (Dept of Commerce, Mount Everest College) on "Role of British political agent's (1835-1890) in the social and economic changes in Manipur, special reference to Meitei community"; and Dr Sylvia Yambem, guest faculty (Dept of History, Manipur University) on "Native resistance and British administration in colonial Manipur" .

The seminar is being attended by more tjian 300 delegates including research scholars from Manipur University, college students, B Ed students and PG students of the host college.
