[Inpui Special Feature]

After we were notified of the existence of the just released music album of the Evangelical Free Church of India (Aizawl) Choir on the internet, we came across two such videos from youtube.com uploaded by lkungahmar.

What surprises us at, Inpui, was that this music album was officially released only on August 25, 2009 at Aizawl by Mizoram's Health Minister Upa H.Liansailova. But the videos were already out on youtube as early as March 27&30, 2009 (Upload dates on youtube.com by lkungahmar)

We think they are genuine videos from 'ELSADAI' music video album. But, how and why the they were already available on youtube before the official release is still baffling us. Whatever, the reasons be, we suggest you do buy the orginal after watching these two videos.

Here's a review

Aizawl, Aug 29, 2009: The Zo Re-Unification Organisation (ZORO) has said it is committed to work for the formation of 'Zo Inpui' to bring all Mizo/Zo tribes under one umbrella, Zawlbuk.com reports said.

This decision was taken on August 12, 2009, on the occasion of the International Day of World Indigenous Peoples observed at the I&PR Auditorium, Aizawl.

'Zo Inpui' will be set up as a cultural-based organisation in accordance with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

It was also agreed that 'Zo Inpui' would be formed only after consultations with all 'Zofate' from various states.

ZORO Gen. Hqrs. has been entrusted with the task of initiating talks with leaders of all the Zo/Mizo tribes, the report added.

New York, August 23, 2009: On Sunday night, during one of the year’s most exciting live international television events, a star-studded panel of judges chose Miss Venezuela, Stefania Fernandez, as MISS UNIVERSE 2009 live from Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas.

Miss Venezuela, Stefania Fernandez, is 18-years-old and she is interested in International Relations.

The triumph of Ms Fernandez, who is 5ft 10in and aged 18, makes Venezuela the first country to win the title two years running and takes the beauty-obsessed Latin American nation to within touching distance of its next pageant goal — to take the record for the most Miss Universe victories from the United States, which is one title ahead with seven wins.

"What do we Venezuelans have?" said Ms Fernandez, from the western city of Merida, after her win. "That we are ourselves." But many would disagree with that interpretation of Venezuela's success? In beauty schools across the country, thousands of dollars are spent on remaking candidates, usually with help from one of the country's largest industries — plastic surgery.

Miss Mendoza had the tip of her nose reshaped, implants and liposuction to remove fat from around her knees, according to the former Miss Venezuela surgeon, Daniel Slobodianik. While Miss Fernandez's surgeries have yet to be revealed, they will no doubt soon be dissected by a media obsessed with the secrets of these living Barbies.

The national fascination with the aesthetic sits uneasily with the socialist values propounded by Mr Chavez, who has denounced pageants as an oligarchic and imperialistic preoccupation and declined to meet with Ms Mendoza after her 2008 victory.

However Miss Fernandez said she hoped that he would receive her "because we are making history". But if the new Miss Universe hopes for good relations with her President, she would be advised to avoid emulating her predecessor, who provoked uproar after a visit to the US detention camp at Guantanamo Bay.

In the tradition of incisive political comment upheld by generations of beauty queens, Miss Mendoza lauded the facility as a "such a relaxing place, calm and beautiful". It was so much fun she "didn't want to leave", she said.

The judging panel for the 2009 Miss Universe Pageant included: Dean Cain, actor and producer best known for his TV portrayal of Clark Kent/Superman; Colin Cowie, author/television personality/designer to the stars; Gerry DeVeaux, award-winning producer, songwriter and style guru; Farouk Shami, Founder and Chairman of CHI Hair Care; Heather Kerzner, Ambassador for Kerzner International and their resorts, including Atlantis, Paradise Island; Richard LeFrak, Chairman, President and CEO, LeFrak Organization; George Maloof Jr., professional sports mogul and hotelier; Valeria Mazza, international supermodel; Matthew Rolston, leading photographer and director; Andre Leon Talley, award-winning writer and editor; Tamara Tunie, actress, "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit;" and Keisha Whitaker, fashion maven and founder of the Kissable Couture lip gloss line.

Throughout the two-hour event, contestants from over 80 countries and territories around the world competed in three categories: swimsuit, evening gown and personality interview. Dayana Mendoza,
Miss Universe 2008, crowned her successor at the conclusion of the two-hour primetime telecast before an estimated worldwide viewing audience of approximately one billion viewers.

Final Results:
First Runner-Up: Miss Domincan Republic, Ada Aimee De La Cruz; will assume the duties of MISS UNIVERSE 2009 if the titleholder for some reason cannot fulfill her responsibilities.
Second Runner-Up: Miss Kosovo, Gona Dragusha.

Rest of Top Five: Miss Australia, Rachael Finch; Miss Puerto Rico, Mayra Matos Perez.

Rest of Top Ten: Miss South Africa, Tatum Keshwar; Miss Czech Republic, Iveta Lutovska; Miss Switzerland, Whitney Toyloy; Miss USA, Kristen Dalton; and Miss France, Chloe Mortaud.

Rest of Top Fifteen: Miss Albania, Hasna Xhukici; Miss Belgium, Zeynep Sever; Miss Croatia, Sarah Cosic; Miss Iceland, Ingibjorg Egilsdottir; and Miss Sweden, Renate Cerljen.

Miss Photogenic Universe™ Award: Miss Thailand, Chutima Durongdej. The general public voted on www.nbc.com for the delegate who exemplifies beauty through the lens of a camera. She was awarded a $1,000 cash prize and a gift from pageant sponsor Diamond Nexus Labs.

Miss Congeniality Universe™ Award: Miss China, Wang Jingyao. This award reflects the respect and admiration of the delegate’s peers, who voted for her as the most congenial, charismatic and inspirational participant. She was awarded a $1,000 cash prize and a gift from Diamond Nexus Labs.

The MISS UNIVERSE 2009 prize package includes: the Miss Universe tiara and jewelry designed by Diamond Nexus Labs; a two-year scholarship from the New York Film Academy worth more than $100,000 dollars to its acting or film-making programs; an eveningwear wardrobe from Carlos Alberto; a custom swimsuit wardrobe from BSC Swimwear Thailand; a shoe collection from Nina Footwear; an assortment of Luxe Collection video cameras from DXG USA; a six-day/five-night vacation for two at Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas with air travel accommodations by JetBlue Airways; a year-long supply of Farouk Systems products, makers of CHI, the original Ceramic Technology tools; a Skype kit featuring a laptop computer, webcam, speakers and a one-year Unlimited World plan to talk to friends and family; membership to Gravity Fitness and pampering at John Barrett Salon; a fashion portfolio by leading fashion photographer Fadil Berisha; dermatology and skincare services by Dr. Cheryl Thellman-Karcher; consultations with personal stylist Billie Causieestko and access to an event wardrobe from leading fashion designers; a New York City apartment for the year of her reign including living expenses and professional representation by the Miss Universe Organization to further her personal and professional goals.

We, at Inpui, have come up with this poster to show our support for Bangalore HSA football team Sinlung FC, in their campaign to clinch the Bangalore Mizo Association League 2009.

The BMA is celebrating its 25th year and sources said that the organisers are preparing to make this year's prize, and the cup "very special".

So far, HSA team Sinlung FC has defeated two teams in their last two matches. Yesterday (Aug 22) they defeated Kristu Jayanti 1-0.

Sinlung FC's next and their last league match is with the Dr Ambedkar Institute of Technology FC (schedule yet to be fixed). And if captain Tv Zairemthang and his men trash Dr AIT FC, they will secure a berth in the semi-finals.

Passions are already running high. Some supporters of Sinlung FC told Inpui that yesterday's match referee was "really unfair". "Why did he turn a blind eye to the fouls committed by Kristu Jayanti players while he was giving cards to our players?" a visibly upset Sinlung FC supporter said.

Passions on and off the field are going to be fully charged during the next match and we at Inpui are also throwing some 'woods' into the 'fire' with this campaign poster! :)

Pune, Aug 21, 2009: Mr Frankie Lalrinnunga, son of Mr Biakliana of Aizawl, became the first Mizo casualty of the dreaded H1N1 virus here in Pune this morning (August 21)

Sources told Inpui that the 26-year-old, working at a call center, contacted cold and had a running nose some days back. To be on the safer side, Lalrinnunga consulted a private doctor, however, the doctor reportedly told him there was no need to worry. But days later his conditions worsened and after testing his swap at a government hospital he was immediately admitted to the ICU ward of YCM Hospital in Pune.

He was put on ventilator but doctors could not save him as the swine flu virus has already done enough damages to his lungs. He breathed his last at around 8.30 am in the morning.

Doctors, according to our sources, reportedly told family members that Mr Lalrinnunga died of pneumonia. Even mainstream newspapers and media are yet to cover this incident as a swine flu death at the time of this report.

As per the information received by us via SMSes, Mr Lalrinnunga's body will be cremated in Pune itself and later his ashes taken to Mizoram for burial.

There has been no official confirmation from either the Mizoram government or Maharashtra health department that Mr Lalrinnunga indeed died due to the A(H1N1) virus.

As the nation celebrates the 63rd Independence Day today (Aug 15), we at Inpui wish you a Happy Independence Day!!!

Following is the text of the President of India, Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil’s address to the Nation by on the eve of the 63rd Independence Day:

“My Fellow Citizens,

Tomorrow, we celebrate our 63rd Independence Day. On its eve, I extend my warmest greetings to all of you in India and the world over. I would like to convey a special word of gratitude to the brave personnel of the Armed Forces and the Para-military forces who guard our frontiers. I also extend my greetings to the Central and State level police as well as our internal security forces.

Our independence was won after a long and arduous struggle. Countless men and women, yearning for liberation from the colonial yoke, joined the ranks of freedom fighters. Energized by the inspiring leadership of Mahatma Gandhi and his call for an agitation based on the principles of Ahimsa and Satyagraha, they displayed undaunted courage. They willingly went through great hardships guided solely by the desire that the country be independent and its people free to determine their own destiny. This selfless spirit and sacrifices won us our freedom. I call on fellow citizens to join me in paying homage and our deepest respect to our great national leaders, martyrs, freedom fighters and all those who took part in the freedom movement and gave us a sovereign nation.

Freedom was won and the task of nation building brooked no delay. The vision, the principles and responsibilities would now onwards be for the leaders and the people of India to determine. On 15th August, 1947 itself, Bapuji was quick to remind us of this. He said, “From today you have to wear the crown of thorns. Strive ceaselessly to cultivate truth and non-violence. Be humble. Be forbearing … Now you will be tested through and through.” The same day at the stroke of midnight the vision of a free India was enunciated by the first Prime Minister of Independent India, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, in his stirring “Tryst with Destiny” speech. He said we would have to, “build the noble mansion of free India where all her children dwell.”

Thus, we embarked on our journey. The four essential pillars necessary to support the edifice of India have been and remain - democracy, inclusive economic development, social empowerment and a value system based on our civilizational heritage. Each one of them is individually important and must be equally strong for a stable and progressive nation.

The 15th General Elections were held this year. Spread over five phases, the effort was to reach out to every voter, even in the remotest parts of the country. That is why even where there was only one voter, arrangements were made for the casting of that one vote. The voice of every citizen is important and the principle of inclusiveness integral to democracy. In accordance with the mandate, the new Government assumed office. The electoral exercise re-affirmed the strong faith of the people, across the country, in democracy. It once again proved that the world’s largest democracy is, indeed, a mature democracy. We can be proud that we have carried forward the torch of democracy in a manner that today the concept of democracy and India are inseparable.

If we can work to ensure that each citizen gets an opportunity to be heard while choosing representatives to Parliament and the Assemblies, it also becomes our bounden duty to ensure that they are heard even in the period between elections. Each elected Member of Parliament represents on an average the voice of over a 1.3 million electorate - larger than the population of some nations, and this imposes a huge responsibility to represent the aspirations of those who have elected them. They have a clear obligation to work for the welfare of the people and the progress of the nation.

At the same time, the expectations of the people are rising as they are becoming more aware of their rights and seek better opportunities. Facilities, amenities and services meant for them whether they are living in rural or urban areas can be delivered smoothly only is there is an effective governance system that is less cumbersome but more transparent and accountable. There is outrage when money meant for welfare schemes is pilfered out by corrupt practices. The flagship programmes of the Government are comprehensive ranging from health to education, employment to expanding social and economic infrastructure. Their implementation will have to be at optimal levels for an impact to be made on the lives of the people. Hence, the emphasis on reform of governance for effective delivery of public services is critical to change the lives of the people. The administrators must be responsive to the needs of the people. Their work is a public service – commitment, dedication and honesty should be the hallmarks of their work.

This year the monsoon has been less than normal impacting agriculture and availability of water. We have to be prepared to face the situation. The Government is taking all possible steps to deal with it. It is also taking necessary measures to handle the H1N1 influenza. Citizens have to come forward to contribute to Government’s efforts in these areas and in other development initiatives through public-private partnerships, NGOs, community groups or Self Help Groups. An enlightened citizenry conscious of its civic duties and social responsibilities, maintaining discipline, following good habits particularly about hygiene and cleanliness, respectful towards nature’s bounty and sensitive to environmental concerns is the greatest asset of a nation.

Fellow Citizens,

Our uninterrupted democratic credentials and our steady economic progress achieved due to our hard work have fortified India’s stature. Even in the face of a global slowdown, which demands that we manage the economy to counter its effects, we must work to continue our upward trajectory. We have a large domestic market and inherent strengths to drive the economy forward. As we focus on areas of proven strength, on building of infrastructure throughout the country and rural development, it should be our incessant endeavor to expand into new areas of growth.

We must prepare for the future world whose contours will be shaped by innovation, technology and a spirit of enterprise. India has been playing a leading role in the knowledge economy and in the IT and IT enabled sectors. We are well placed to face the future with confidence, but we must not be complacent. Transformational changes have taken place in India when technology has been used for development. The building of modern India requires a focus on strengthening our academic institutions and research facilities. Our efforts in this direction should be motivated by the desire to achieve excellence. India can set high standards of Research and Development so that these can become the international benchmarks in a knowledge society. The world expects India to be one of the largest economies of the world. We know we can achieve this position. After all, history tells us that since ancient times India was a wealthy nation well known for its riches and its global importance. However, India which is a civilization in continuum seeks in addition to material progress, enrichment of human life through cultural advancement, a constant search for knowledge and understanding, and above all, social justice.

Our narrative of growth should be a story of opportunity and a life of dignity for all. Social empowerment requires considerable amount of work and, hence, must occupy centre stage in our national consciousness. There are the weaker and the vulnerable sections of society who are not full partners in the growth and development process and remain on the sidelines. These sections of society need to be drawn into the national mainstream. They need to be given access to education, health and skill-building - the tools of empowerment. This will equip them with abilities and capabilities and generate confidence about their future prospects. This will give them a sense of control over their destinies. It is within the realm of possibility to achieve this. Signs of change are becoming visible. Today, there are girls joining colleges, whose parents had never ever been to school. This is a development that has happened within a generation. People are today realizing the advantages of being educated and are ready to seize opportunities. The passage of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Bill is a landmark legislation for achieving our goal of universal education. The National Mission on Empowerment of Women will socially and economically empower women – 50 percent of our population to play an active role in nation building. Giving an equal chance to everybody to get ahead in life is an article of faith for the Republic of India, and building an inclusive society our objective.

I am confident that our nation will move forward to become an exemplary democracy, an economic power and a progressive society. However, what will be the value system upon which we will judge our performance? There will be sweeping changes in the world. What will be our anchor to cope with these changes? In such situations, if we are not rooted in values we become rudderless. Hence, the importance of values in the nation building endeavour. We, as a nation, are fortunate that we are the inheritors of values which have stood the test of time. Harmony and peaceful co-existence have been at the core of our civilization. They are messages relevant for all times and ages. They can, perhaps, never be outdated. Therefore, even as we progress it will be these values which would help to provide us strength as they have done throughout our history. India should build its destiny on a culture of peace and harmony. There should be harmony between good traditions and progress.

India has shown a remarkable capacity to assimilate change as well as the influences that have been brought to its land over centuries by the many groups who came here. This has made us a composite society consisting of many different strands but yet united. This unity has been brought about by the philosophy of harmony which demands a sense of responsibility towards fellow human beings. It seeks to resolve differences rather than widen them. It seeks to bring people together rather than divide them. It looks at change not as a threat but as a reality of the march of time. Peaceful co-existence is inherent in our culture. Terrorism, which targets innocent people, is the very anti-thesis of peaceful co-existence. It is condemnable because it is against the tenets of every religion and faith. It must be defeated in the interest of the collective goal of humankind to build peaceful societies and a peaceful world. We need to work together towards this end as humankind shares a common destiny.

Fellow citizens,

We have struggled since the first war of independence in 1857. We have fought against the sentiments largely created by a divide and rule policy, which aimed at defeating our unity. We won because our freedom struggle was based on noble principles. We have adhered to secularism, equality and respect for all religions. I call upon my brothers and sisters of every religion – whether they be Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists, Jains, Parsees and all others, to live together in harmony. Here, I am reminded of the famous lines:-

‘Mazhab nahin sikhata

Aapas mein bair rakhna’

If we have to progress, communal harmony is important. It is like the thread which holds together a garland of beautiful flowers made of different colours and fragrance. Let us prove that we can be united as human beings and not divided. Let us fight against violence and extremism and be an important part of promoting peace and harmony. If we choose to be bound by the feelings of hatred, mistrust and apathy we will never move forward. Therefore, let us build a strong, united and progressive India for us and our future generations as also a peaceful world. I end with the message contained in these lines:-

Common be our resolve,

Our hearts be united,

Our thoughts be in unison,

So that all may live harmoniously.

Once again, my greetings to all Fellow Citizens on the occasion of Independence Day.

Jai Hind.”
