Manipur Introduces Gender Budget
Eclectic Northeast|March 2021
The main objective is to bring forward a gender perspective at all stages of policy making

Right now, the whole world is abuzz with the term ‘gender equality’. Even though gender quality is aimed at the upliftment of the society as a whole, there is a lot of negative feedback linked to the terminology. This is because many misunderstand it as giving more importance to girls and women, or giving them special rights and liberties. But in fact, it is not that at all. Gender equality is more about ensuring that everyone has equal access to resources and opportunities, regardless of gender. Even State governments are starting to understand the importance of gender equality. Recently Manipur took a monumental step by introducing the first ever Gender Budget statement in the State Assembly.

MUSINGS OF A SOLDIER: TIT-BITS

People often ask me about my life out of uniform. Honestly, I have had no problems. Not so far. Instead, I find it quite refreshing. No routine, no parades, no briefing, no impending operations. Having donned the uniform since the age of thirteen until I hung up my boots last year, could I ever visualize life out of uniform? Not really. But, as I said, the transition has been quite smooth–no hang-overs, no regrets. People have been very positive in their interactions. Government departments have been responsive whenever I have approached for assistance.The genuine respect for the uniform is quite evident and it makes my heart swell with pride. Arunachal, to that extent, is the most nationalistic state in the country, I daresay. It has been kind of a revelation for me to experience the freedom of being a common man in an environment of positivity!
