Thanks to Imphal Free Press (one of the popular Newspaper publication in Imphal, Manipur) for featuring the poem “Second Hand Clothes in Manipur “
This poem was written after I read comments amongst the people of hill and valley of Manipur mocking each other, trying to belittle the other making fun of wearing second hand clothes generalizing a community.
