FIFA on Playstation and ugly takedowns on Whatsapp – and little substance. On the day when 12 middle-aged imas mothers stood naked outside Imphal’s Kangla fort used by Assam Rifles as its base to protest the killing and possible rape of a young Thangjam Manorama the region’s most famous woman footballer Oinam BemBem Devi was in the city It was July 2004 she was 24 “I was sad shocked and emotional A young girl was tortured and Meira Paibis (women torchbearers) protested” In the army’s eyes the girl was an insurgent which her family denied; the army denied the rape The story of nude protests by Meira Paibis and their fight against AFSPA drew a largely uninterested nation’s attention to the decades-old Manipur problem Meira Pabis’s history of resisting and questioning authorities dates back to 1904 and along with the exclusively-women-run markets presents an air of women’s empowerment in the region But that’s too simple a conclusion to be drawn This isn’t a story about ethnic strife insurgency or the army but about how sport flourishes in this violence-torn region There is poverty across the country but in Manipur it’s situated in the context of historical strife Over the last few weeks the poverty of most of the eight Manipuri footballers in India’s U-17 team has been splashed all over in the media but the story isn’t just about impoverishment This is a football story that has run parallel to the tale of violence in the region for a while now though sport has pipped the conflict-narrative for now at least Now that’s the new theme Success stories of Bhaichung Bhutia and Renedy Singh or Manipur winning the Santosh Trophy in 2003 had overshadowed depressing news in the past but the tale of eight teenaged kids thwarting financial and societal crises to reach the Indian team caught the imagination of a nation like never before Sport doesn’t exist in a vacuum no matter how fervently some believe it does or should The relationship between sport and politics commerce gender race ethnicity is vital to understand both sport and society In conflict-ridden Manipur it would be utterly silly to say that it’s just a game Nothing comes easy; from infrastructure to even the very act of dreaming about playing a sport for a living Most kids leave their families and go to academies in Chandigarh or Kolkata for proper training Mother of the Indian midfielder Ninthoinganba Meitei would wish that her son didn’t come home in the summer holidays “At the academy he would get nutritious food We can’t afford that here He would exercise in a gym there Here nothing And there is the cost of travel” Similar stories run in other families – the young son 8 to 10 years is better off with strangers than at home And when you throw in the fact how difficult it can get sometimes to reach home even when there are no highway-blockades that used to be a constant feature of lives here the mother’s hard choice makes all the more sense They said it would take four-and-a-half hours at the most but it takes a further four to reach Imphal by road from Dimapur in Nagaland The winger van heaved along the potholes on what has been reduced to a dirt track Landslides and heavy rains had dissolved the roads into watery graves especially after the town of Mao Narrow kuchcha roads would fork out through bushy areas to pathways to the cloud-collected hills Going back in time the region was tagged on to India as a buffer zone in 1891 by the British and reluctantly ceded to India in 1949 It’s riven by fractured by splinter political movements that pursue self-government and was economically stagnant for decades Imphal’s landscape is lush the central valley baked into squares of green and yellow fields stretching out onto the mist-topped hills in the horizon People cluster their homes around ponds that vary in size Pradeep Phanjoubam editor of Imphal Press too lives in a neighbourhood that has a phukri a pond “The one positive is that we as a state have hit rock bottom – with all these conflicts and problems We can’t go any lower Things will hopefully change soon Football and sport in general can’t be couched as a religion or such nonsense” Thanoujam says “For many youngsters it’s the only way out of the mess they see around them: Unemployment and poverty” And drugs Manipur has the country’s highest number of HIV patients Most of them are young According to the Manipur State AIDS Control Society Manipur with barely 02 per cent of India’s population contributes nearly 8 per cent of India’s total HIV positive cases Parents see sport as a bridge out of poverty drugs and aimless drift that has sucked in many a kid in the region “Only the poor play football sir” says Umakanta the brother of Indian U-17 captain Amarjeet and a footballer as well “It’s cheap everyone in our neighbourhoods play we see people like Renedy Singh and Gouramangi do well in life We think this can be a good thing for us” It’s not easy being young in Manipur Renedy Singh former India player from Manipur and a coach now puts it in perspective “I was lucky that my family didn’t face such hardships but lives of many footballers are tough There are so many ways kids can go astray here Drugs lack of education and money no job prospects – it’s a struggle most days” Sport is seen as the best get-out card from this mess In end September in a tiny village with just 14 houses in Kholjang region a kilometre away from the highway Kuki Football Academy hosted the first-ever ‘Night Football tournament’ Eight floodlight poles with 400 watt bulbs procured for 9000 rupees from Kolkata lit up the arena People from different communities sent their players to participate The plan is ambitious They want to take in 30 students up to third level focus on football and try to provide food and lodging for free They know the importance of football here It’s not all gloom though If you fly in and out of Imphal for a weekend you would wonder what’s the fuss about It’s a pretty city the landscape can be enchanting You would also run into proud people who would tell you that it’s Manipuris who gave the world the game of Polo One evening on September 26 a ‘Night Plaza’ opened up with food stalls lined up in the town’s centre on a stretch of a road next to the Kangla Palace surrounded by a moat and remnants of an old wall that was built over centuries to protect from Chinese and Burmese invasions Usually the town sleeps by 9 pm but the government came up with this idea last month to spruce up nightlife over the weekends The inaugural day saw an overwhelming response as hundreds roamed about peacefully On one side of the road the army trucks lined up the men in uniform watching the civilians relax People from all communities congregated and one bumped into a group asking for directions to a small food-shack that was reputed to have yummy fish – era thongba The group not only yanked me into the dark lane behind one of the oldest polo grounds in the world Mapal Kangjeibung The locals believe the British discovered the game here and took it worldwide They tried to get the restaurant to open up The small-town warmth allowed for a chat to bubble up and it steered to the ethnic clashes “Here we all live in peace” says one Another smiles “we try to if the politicians and underground movements would allow us to” There isn’t much arable land left in the hills according to Pradip Phanjoubam and many Nagas and Kukis come down to the valley to find work The story of Nagas isn’t just about their relationship with British colonialists but it also involves American missionaries On a cold wintery day in February 6 1821 in Massachusetts Salem in America 2000 people waded through snow to America’s first ordination of missionaries Six of them it was decided would spread the word of Christ in Asiatic fields Soon they boarded the ship Caravan and after months would anchor at Kolkata In the years to come the numbers grew and some of them reached the Naga hills It’s a fascinating story as told by the Swedish journalist Bertil Lintner in his book: The great game of East: India China and the struggle for Asia’s most volatile frontier Even as the British colonialists found Nagas inscrutable the missionaries made headway “Thousands of Nagas had been converted and not only Bibles but also hymn books dictionaries grammars and primers appeared in the tribal languages—and a national consciousness emerged as a result of this unique cultural and tribal awakening With a different language and script and a new awareness of their own identity the gap between the people in the hills and on the plains also widened This process was accelerated by the undeniable fact that long-standing frictions existed between the previously isolated tribals and the more sophisticated cultures on the plains” Linter writes Things are slowly changing according to Phanjoubam the editor of Imphal Press The angst still surfaces of course In an auto ride incidentally after meeting Bembem Devi the conversation meanders to the Naga-Meitei divide and how many people from the hills now live in the valley “Udhar pahadon mein gaye toh tiger hain woh log yahan billi (they are tigers in the hills cats here)” the driver says with a laugh Mina mother of Indian midfielder Ninthoinganba Meitei who featured in the U-17 World Cup stands outside her thatched hut in Imphal Flowers and basil water are sprinkled around the tulsi plant at the front – it’s a puja to the Sun God her daughter Sana says The phone buzzes and it seems to kick in excited movement in the household An odd-job has surfaced in the bazaar area and Mina wants to rush there first before it’s given away to another person She had woken up early sold dried fish had lunch done puja and spends the afternoon waiting for the phone to ring with some good news about any small jobs in the area A framed picture of her husband who died of cancer four months back hangs in the thatched wall behind her He was a cowherder Everything now it seems rests on the footballer One daughter is studying at a nursing college Either sport or nursing is the main hope A week before the U-17 World Cup Boris Thangjam’s father is dragged out by youth of Neroca football club an old and reputed club of the region Down the alley from his small brick house outside the grocery shop he once used to run but not anymore the members want him to be present when they put up the banner in support of all the 8 footballers who have made it to the Indian squad ‘Pride of Manipur’ it reads As the banner is tied to the wall Boris’s father smiles Years ago curious to see why grown-up coaches waited at his house to cajole his son to play he had gone to watch him play Though there wasn’t a goal nifty foot-play had convinced him that the son should be encouraged The stories are similar elsewhere At goalkeeper Dhiraj’s house his mother who works in the municipality was hopeful that her son would end up in the civil services It was her mother who stealthily gifted a football boot to Dhiraj and kickstarted his journey “If not for football Dhiraj would have been a collector” she chuckles He is in the 12th standard academically bright and she believes if sport doesn’t offer the passport out of trouble he should fall back on studies It might not be so straightforward now After a stellar World Cup her son won hearts And thus the story of hope spreads across the region — from mother of captain Amarjeet Singh who gets up at 2 am every day to go to the market to sell fish To Abdul Manaf the father of Mohammad Shahjahan who was a tailor but had to shut shop after running out of workers and depends on other sons who drive autos to bring some money The father of Jeakson Thounaojam labours on others’ farms and his mother again the main breadwinner of the house sells garments to make ends meet Romesh Bhattacharji a former commissioner of customs in Assam wrote in 2002: “You can smell fear and feel the wariness The Kukis and the Nagas are fighting each other The Meiteis the Nagas and the Kukis are all against authority … here yesterday’s headlines will be repeated tomorrow They tell the same story Ambush massacre abduction extortion raid and retaliatory raid and rape The most unthinkable is commonplace here The list is endless” Those gory days of violence seem to be winding down or so the hope floats in the people Reports abound about the renewed talks between insurgent groups and the government “There is nearly a 72% literacy rate here” says Phanjoubam the editor “But while primary education is fine the colleges are of very poor quality here Where will the youth go Not everyone can play football at higher level after all” The region waits for long-lasting peace and increased employment opportunities While the adults wait for life to be upgraded the kids are kicking the ball around in the hills and in the gullies around ponds in the valley For all the latest Sports News
