Growing up in a conflicted place seeing violence at a close range, ongoing choatic situations, anger, less freedom, more anger and fight for basic human rights – I carry the responsibility of spreading positivity to rise above the conflict. In my quest to elevate the voices of inspiring people through FindingTheVoices, I found that there is a huge lack of recognition and honor for the ones with vision and good intent, working tirelessly towards positive changes in Manipur. One of my biggest takeaway in my own personal growth journey is the power of gratitude to elevate self rippling to others. You cannot be in any other emotional state when you are in gratitude. My goal is to host gratitude workshops in schools, institutes, offices, anywhere touching everyone in Manipur where we pause, reflect and take the time to share our gratitude to people around us, at the level of Manipur and globally.
I want everyone to hear words of love, experience gratitude, read words of expressions bringing a smile or even tears of human connections. It is my belief that gratitude will open our heart, elevate positivity and heightened human connections in Manipur.Monica Ingudam
There is so much of anger, oppression, hurt, violence and fear in Manipur which is a byproduct of conflicts. I carry the sights of intense protest scenes of students, unburied bodies for protest, lack of freedom, many young and old with mental conditions issues, increasing drug/alcohol/smoking/depression , mob justice – beating to death in front of children, and you will even find scenario of people eating other’s pet dog.
I believe gratitude will open our heart and create the shift to healing and light seeding to the start of 1001 Thagatchari, gratitude project of Manipur. My goals for this project is to:
