Myanmar has been in turmoil ever since the military ousted and detained civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi on February 1. There have been mass protests across the country. More recently, around 107 people were killed when security forces opened fire on anticoup protesters. The situation is worsening with each day, and so, many are being forced to move out of their homes and seek asylum in neighbouring countries. The border patrol at the MizoramMyanmar border has started being more ‘lenient’ towards the incoming refugees. Myanmar and Mizoram not only share a long porous border but there is a deeper bond between the people of both sides of the border which is why Mizoram has witnessed huge influx of refugees in the past few weeks.

I was born with six toes in my right leg – so, could never wear a pair of shoes until I got the extra toe surgically removed in January 1974 for my entry to Rashtriya Indian Military College, Dehradun (which I have spoken about in my previous ‘piece’), and perforce, I used to wear slippers to school.
