  1. CM should announce cash prize for manipuries who writes good books, comes out with scientific findings which is a contribution to mankind. But for the many years we have seen our govt. has been very happy to award cash prize to sportspersons who received medals etc. The medal received in an sporting event is purely an individuals achievement and it does not contribute to the welfare of mankind, except that he/she is a manipuri. But let me remind that the contribution of a scientist is for the mankind and it has no boundary. Therefore I request the press fraternity to let this message reach our CM and other politicians to take appropriate actions to recognize and award academic talents. Prof. Robert Edward is awarded Nobel prize in medicine after 32 years of his test tube experiment. It is so shocking news. To write a book takes a minimum of 3-4 years. but no award for such work also. This is discouraging our young talents.
