Ursula Graham Bower

Mar 23, 2012 - SARJU KAUL: Former debutante, Ursula Graham Bower, from a upper-class British family, found fame across the world in the turbulent years of World War II as the “Naga queen” for leading some 200-odd Naga warriors to repel Japanese incursions in Northeast India.

Major Bob Khathing—A legend

Born at Ukhrul on Feb 8th, 1912, into a well-educated Tangkhul family, he received his primary education at Ukhrul. He joined Kangpokpi Mission ME School for class VI. Mind you he had to walk from home all the way to Imphal and then to Kangpokpi (73 miles). He was the only one who got through the class VI examination is also another wonder. His devotion to loving parents was revealed at that young age, when the scholarship amount, which he had received from Rev Pettigrew for passing class VI exam, was handed over intact to his mother. He passed matric from Johnstone High School, Imphal which then used to be affiliated to Sylhet University and did his graduation from Calcutta University (Bishop Cotton College, Guwahati) and became the first graduate among the hill peoples in Manipur, to do so.

Nagas to be made party to agreement: GK Pillai

GUWAHATI, FEB 16, 2012 
Former union home secretary G.K. Pillai has revealed the policy towards political solution to the Naga issue that has been going on for several decades would be to rope in the entire Naga society to whatever deal that would be struck.

In an interview to The Telegraph G.K Pillai said “all have to endorse the agreement, from the gaon burhas (village headmen) to civil society groups... none should be able to turn around and say after some years that they were kept in the dark and hence would not accept the agreement.”

The talks have been dragged on with the NSCN (I-M) for nearly 15 years, the former bureaucrat said adding, a settlement could be expected later this year.

NSCN (I-M) will hold consultations with other factions and civil society groups from February 22 before sitting for the next round of talks with the Centre.

Military action against Libya within hours of UN vote: France

BENGHAZI: France said Friday military action against Libya would come "within hours", as a UN vote approving air strikes was celebrated by rebels and Muammar Gaddafi's son said his family was "not afraid."

The strikes will come "rapidly... within a few hours," French government spokesman Francois Baroin said after the UN Security Council on Thursday cleared the way for air raids to protect civilians from Gaddafi's advancing forces.

Baroin said the goal of the military action would be to "protect the Libyan people and to allow them to go all the way in their drive for freedom, which means bringing down the Gaddafi regime."
