“Fire in the Blood” Film Released!
Movie review| Khams Zotal
A well-Documented film which took 5 and half years to complete the film based on HIV/AIDS and the challenges issues faced by the people living with HIV/AIDS movies called “Fire in the blood” released on 28th March, 2014 at Indian Habitat Centre, New Delhi. This film is directed by Mr. Dylan Mohan Gray and is narrated by Mr. William Hurt. The film includes five Panelists, namely, 1. Congressman Jim McDermott(Democrat-WA-07), 2. Rohit Malpani, Policy Director, Doctor without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontieres(MSF), 3. James Love. Director, Knowledge Ecology International (KEI) and Jason Beaubien, Moderator, NPR Global Health and Development Correspondent.
Doctors without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) and the O'Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University are the co-sponsor for a screening such informative and challenging documentary film, Fire in the Blood. The film will be followed by a discussion of challenges and opportunities for access to medicines, featuring a panel of distinguished speakers representing a range of expertise in the field of access to medicines. This film reveals- how the criminal racket allegedly enforced by large Pharmaceutical companies to block lifesaving drugs from third world countries, mainly Africa, which touches all our lives. It also depicts that most of us can also one of the victims, and we don’t even know it!
It also reflects us that in todays’ world, medicines and drugs are a business proposition. To see how pharmaceutical companies ruthlessly operate in non-developed, under privileged areas to deny rather than save lives is a process that this film explores and exposes with meticulously researched material and the authoritative voices of people who care about what happens to the poor.
The singular concern of Gray’s film establishes the enormity of the wrongdoers’ death-inducing syndicate early in the narrative. The unlikely heroes show up later. They are an Indian pharmaceutical company Cipla and vocal activists which went that extra mile to counter the damage done by the greedy global players in the business.
‘Fire In The Blood’ is an important treatise on the troubled diseased times we live in when the healers become the destroyers and medicines are turned into malicious money-making agents of destruction.
This film is also interesting since we can see some our great leaders like MK. Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, Kofi Anan, Rruce and Some of the world’s most high active profile spokespersons like Desmond Tutu, Zackie Achmat and Bill Clinton give their voices to make a cogent powerful impact to us. And as such, watching ‘Fire In The Blood’ is not a breezy experience in life. It makes us wake up, to think hard and reconsider the quality of our lives. In other words, it does everything cinema is supposed to, but seldom does.
ONCE my mom told about her life's story and experiences when I approached about womens and their problems. I realized my mom itself struggled and suffered during the time of her teenager live. She also comments more about her live story being a women living in this world with ignorance and insecurity living this world of no concerned.
A tears roled down from my eyes while on listening to her stort story. At the mean time She saw me that I am weeping and said, "Dear, why are you weeping? Its a source for you to give awareness to the whole world". I hugged her, she was surprised! I smiled and look at her and said "Mom I love you and thanks for your endless love". She removed my tears with her clothes and told me to help out my little brother #Mungnou who is cleaning the room.
I observed the surrounding environment wherever I go, identify the situation of womens. I got lot of friends(young and old from different states). I used to chat or talked with them. Sometimes we discussed about any social issues. Or I shared my problems, they shared their problems. we mostly encourage one another, because life is all about helping and sharing. We do teased and cut jokes. We smiled! Thats the fun part of life.
In life, we all wana get a perfect partner being a youngster's, boys need girls, girls need boys. That is all humen natures. Unfortunately, when it comes to relationship most womens are more likely sensitives than the guys. They broke up, the guy can easily forget another girls. I hope this is true to most of the guys and womens will know better. whereas womens will takes years and years to love & trust someone in life. Or they(some womens) let single in life although they are great looking or beautiful. Thats the reason why some of our elders remaind unmarried although they want to fly likes other birds.
Peoples conceptions, attitudes, desire, love to womens is quite harassing and fake. There are lots of women who dedicated her life for their younger/elder brothers education, instead they works tirelessly than enjoying their freedom. we can see many womens are engaged either in any company or call centre for a reason to support their family. But at the end they were blamed by man. Why? We never tried and we don't notice how much they will suffered while working far from home. Don't We? Mksy women remain with tears thinking for their families. This is what I found and its true.
This is the time to give honor our womens for everything. I can honestly say this is the right time to lift up hight the status of women all over the world . Let us thanks to mother Earth and to all womens for a reason we are here. Thanks to my mother, sisters, and all my female friends.
If man is head of coin, remember women are tails. And if Women is a head, man are the tails.
God bless all.
A Short story!
It happens to me.
It was on 16th March 2014. I went to to dropped one of my relatives at the Railway station, Delhi. The train was supposed to start moving at 11:40PM, every passengers were in there own respective seats, this time the train 'Brahmaputra Mail' wasn't delaying even a single section with its departure time.
I saw a man holding a little girls on his left hand, two fully packed airbags on his right hand as well. He sweated, I wondered seeing him like this.
At the time when the train starts moving its journey with a low speed track, the man with with a girl stands just beside the moving train and looking forward someone else coming to him. I turned my head with his eyes direction,
OMG! Its pregnant women approaching towards the man I saw. She couldn't even run faster with her huge belly, but the train started moving faster at the station.
A man snatched the women and dropped her at the open moving train doors, with the moving speed his little girl and the two luggage's were in a far off distances. I have no option, I do snatched two of the bags and drop in to the train while a man rushed back to take his girl from the station.
Finally, the man with his child's and wife luckily get into the train. I kept my hands on my hips and watched the train moving.I sweated with the sudden approached. The man looks back from the train doors and he just salute with action as if I am a military officer. But It was amazing seeing someone truly happy with the little helps I contributed. He shouted! 'Thanks you ji bhaya'
I smiled, I also saluted and wish him a safe journey!
Help each other, Be prepare for anything, a little helps or contribution can change the world.
God Bless you all.
March 9, 2014: A man who makes his living by engaged in daily labor found death at Chiangkongpang Post Office Veranda in Churachandpur, Manipur, India. It was a shocking incident that’s happens to a valuable life found death with all his pitiful belongings. Reflects that our people in Indian still lived under poverty and it comes in real to see that a man dies in such helpless living in a county which unable to sustain his living. It is also said to believe that the man was death in hunger; he has no proper and permanent residence in the town. He spent the rest of his life in finding a way to fill his empty stomach and sifted form one place to another mainly in public waiting shed or bus stand.
Reflection | The Voices
Do not waste food; Do not leftover food.REMEMBER things happening around, people dying in scarcity of food. We must value it. How many of us still a fashion to waste food in our home or anywhere? My Dad once told me, “Do not to left even a single piece of food on the plate. He said, a single piece make a lot of food” . I came to realize the truth said by my heroes.
I used read in the newspaper, quoting that thousands and millions of people dies in huger. When I googled the words “Hunger”, the South African and Indian children’s were mostly exemplary on the top when it comes to Hunger issues. I remember of the time we had a locally food called “Vaiminchim” happily with my families. (Vaiminchim is made from maize and is used as food during in famine or in scarcity of food in the times of my forefather’s).
Love and response to the people who are in needs of help, do not ignore if you come across someone begging you for his living. Generation change to one generation, if today is the generation for you in a position enables to help the needy, then tomorrow may be the position for the needy to help you. Give what you had today or you may waste it, life is precious to end with hunger. The world is totally waste for the people who waste food but it is beautiful to people who concern and find out the beauty not only in nature, but with a hospitality, loving-care and affectionate.
I can see the beauty of a young boys and girls begging money to people on the street, although they wore a torn shirt and pants. I can see their inner gifted beauty when I got back the smiled staring at me after we shared coins I had. Yes, I do not have my saving account like other does, my attitudes towards the needy is never-ending since I am the same like them. No one’s know how hard is life when no one’s care and when there seems to be no way. But there is always a way to people who never give up easy.
If only just a words doesn't letting us to rise up, then we can see the picture of an unfortunate man who merely die in hunger today’s. We can wake up now; help each other, I can, we can, and we will fight to end poverty and eliminate hunger.
Do not waste food, peoples dying, people works the whole day and night just to get a single meal. Let us shape ourselves to shape the world we live in.

TO be a change maker we need challenge ourselves to change our own world, one must see what’s happened around, should be opened minded with a positive eye sight to change the world form our own life, where is our equality? What is our purpose we are here in this universe?
In today’s world, moneys buy money, rich one become richer and richer day by days, whereas the poor remains poor, they are left behind, In other developing country, people have equal development in both social and economic status. Truth being hide, well, this is all about what we are today. Well, few things I would like to hit a challenge to myself and to all, if we can overcome, we will definitely a change maker.
A good education: Without education, the future of our children is totally like a blind even if they can see the beauty of nature with their own eyes. This means that all children should have a high quality primary and secondary education that equips them for employment and an enjoyable life. Governments and the private sector should work together to provide opportunities for lifelong learning and skills development for adults For instance, the government has provided free education for all children below the age of 14 in our country like Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan. It is good to know whether the implementation reach to the needy people, especially in rural areas.
Equality between men and women: I used to said and campaign to my colleagues, friends or neighbors saying that ‘There is no particular roles of men and women in today’s world’. This means that men and women should have the same rights and opportunities. Boys and girls should have equal access to school and the same quality of education; men and women should stand the same chance of getting elected as the leaders in our societies or even to the parliaments, have the same chances to be involved in political and social life, and experience the same opportunities and rewards in the workplace best on the nature of gift and talents he/she possess for social change and development in our country as well as globally.
Protection against crime and violence: In Indian context, can we observed our girls and women’s are being secured living in the largest democracy in the world? The right answer will be “NO”. All people should expect to live in a community that protects them from the threat of crime and violence. This should include domestic violence and sexual assault against women and girls. Every person should be able to get justice through a court or other system if they are victims of a crime. Do not victimize the victims. Wake up now!
Freedom from discrimination and persecution: Freedom from discrimination and persecution means that no person in the world should have their economic, social or political opportunities limited because of their race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual preference, or for any other reason, and that no person should fear for their personal safety for the same reasons, it is good to wake up with the words ‘we are born equally’.
Better transport and roads: A better transport and roads plays a vital role for developments in all field. This means that transport and roads should be improved so that people can move freely and easily to visit their friends and families, find new economic opportunities and use the services they need.
Affordable and nutritious food: This is a very serious issue for the people living in both rurals and urban areas. It means to say that everyone should get the food they need. No person in the world should be constantly hungry, and no person should become malnourished, especially pregnant women and children aged less than two.
Phone and internet access: I was born in T. Vajang village, 17KM from Churachandpur, Manipur. Till today there is no easy network accessible for the whole areas, the areas includes more than 60 villages with a population of 10,000+ people. Believe or not, I tell the truth. This also means that governments and the private sector should make sure that everyone has access to a minimum level of communications technology to get online information and participate in social networks. The world is updated and everyone competing each other to provide the first information with an easy access phone or internet.
Better healthcare: A good quality health services should be available to everyone when they need treatment. Efforts should be made to reduce the impact of infectious and other chronic diseases. Both the funding and the organization of health systems should suit the needs of the country and its citizen’s.
Reliable energy at home: Every family member should have reliable and affordable electricity or other sources of energy at home for lighting, heating and cooking. More of that energy should be sustainably generated.
Support for people who can’t work: Every person should have enough money to live on, either through employment or government help. When people can’t work, or are affected by events like natural disasters or economic crises, governments should make sure that they and their families won’t go hungry, children won’t drop out of school, and they can get the healthcare and other essential services they need. Together we can!
Action taken on climate change: The governments along with all citizens should take on binding commitments to reduce carbon emissions to levels which can keep the global temperature rise below 2 degrees, and invest in adaptation measures particularly involving vulnerable communities. Love nature and live happily!
Better job opportunities: This means that governments and private sector companies should do more to make sure that everyone can find a job where they earn a decent wage, and can contribute and feel valued as a productive member of society. Remember thousands and lakhs of youth graduated remained unemployed.
An honest and responsive government: Honesty what we all expect from all, but that can’t be happens to us, why? This means governments should be effective, transparent, accountable and not corrupt. People should have a say on what the government’s priorities should be, and confidence that they will implement those priorities competently. Governments should agree and implement standards for making information available to all people on how public money is spent.
Political freedoms: Any person should be able to play a part in political processes in their own country, including through voting and forming or joining political parties. People should be able to exercise freedom of expression including through free media. People should be able to join and participate in trade unions and all aspects of civil society including diverse forms of civic engagement and voluntary action.
Access to clean water and sanitation: ‘Save water, safe live’ this means that every person should have access to safe water for drinking, cooking and washing, and access to sanitation in wherever we live in.
Protecting forests, rivers and lakes: We should preserve the nature, it also means that natural resources should be looked after, because people depend on them for food, fuel and other resources. Governments should agree on plans to reduce pollution in oceans and rivers, plant new forests and preserve existing ones, and move towards sustainable agriculture and food systems. Global agreements should protect biodiversity and fragile ecosystems.
Let us open our eyes for social change and development, “today is the day to fight for the betterment of tomorrow”!

“Mom When Can We Return Home (Burma) And Studies From Our Own Home?” said the Burmese Refugee Childrens settle in India. (I am not an activist, nor political leaders who work for the Democratic of Burma, but I am a student social worker who cares for the whole society and community. I wrote this Issues since I find the need that let everyone in this world witness the problem faced by the Burmese refugee’s women)
-Burmese Refugee Women in India Urge the Burmese Government to Stop Using Rape and Other Form of Violence against Women on International Women’s Day 2014 at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi, India- On International Women’s Day 2014, almost every country intervene a social security and promotion of the rights of women in their own country. We can see how people get involved in such challenging manners to uplift status of women in their own perspective location and region. Whereas the thousands and millions of women that has been neglected, none of us cares, how fortunate we are to celebrating International Women’s Day till today with a theme “Inspiring Change’ and what a challenges to the women who remains unreachable to dwell in the land of freedom, Equality and Freedom of Expression?. Those women who were neglected and living in critical situations were abused sexually, tortured to death even, those victims were physically, emotionally and mentally remained helpless. They were none other than the Burmese Women and their refugees in all parts of the country holding hearts to go back to their Motherland “Burma”.
I lived in India and I’m Indian. Although I am Indian, there is a certain situation I came across where my own people regarded as I am not Indian. That’s ok, because they don’t understand and I can make them understand what they don’t understand. But, I am truly concern with the people coming from other countries where they will definitely face any kind of racial discrimination, violence and harassment like the Burmese refugees Women and childrens in Indian, and how hurts it will be in that situation and whom they will called for help when we don’t open our hearts towards them? Remember more than 500 Burmese refuges women and childrens celebrated International Women’s Day with a protest on the street and under the heat of the Sun for demanding social justice and equality for all women all around the world. Don’t we witnesses? Think about it!
In New Delhi most of Burmese refugee women lived in Vikas Puri, Uttam Nagam and Dabri Mor area. Due language barriers and cultural differences, the Burmese refugees living in those areas have not being able to communicated effectively with the local polices forces leading to many regrettable incidents that took place. In order to have self-guided, a refugees from different communities formed a Women Organization known as Burmese Refugee Women Delhi (BRWD) with which they come up with a shocking documentation of more than 200 cases of all forms of violence against Burmese Refugee Women and Children within the past three years in New Delhi. The Disheartening reality is more than 100 of this mechanism available for the Refugees in India. Apart from social insecurity for the Burmese refugees women in New Delhi, they faced so many problems in their health, children education, nutrition and economic status, and they were remained unemployed which leading to never-ending financial crisis within the stay in the country.
For instance, the Delhi Government and UHCHR has provided free education or settlement to the people but that doesn’t leads to self-sustainable & reliable live long to depends and succeed in life with the inadequate educational opportunities that is available for them, this is known after certain interaction and finding through the women wings group leaders, BRWD and Chin Human Rights Organization (CHRO) Field Officer. Furthermore, the Burmese refugees were employed in a factory like plastic packing, charger cable cutting, iron molding etc. with a low daily wages which leads to difficult in sustain their families.
We cannot solve all problems at once, but we can identify, we can prioritize the needs of the people, let us witnesses what our Burmese refuges women and children face today, and as a responsible citizens of the world, it is our duty to help one another. We should be prepared. As we come and read the hidden truth and know the needs of the Burmese refugees in our country, the government must cover up the needy of the refugees. Proper education and a safer environment should be to all children and social security and protection should be given as democratic governance.
Beside, the government of India has to enact Domestic Refugee Protection Laws in order to provide security to refugees living in India’s soil. And if it is possible the Government of India has to take necessary actions and provide security to the Burmese refugee women and children and stop sexual violence and other forms of violence against them from continuing in India which is a violation of Human rights. Furthermore, a separated Police cells or helpline should be given for the Burmese refugees women which will reduce any regrettable incidents that may happen in the future. With much efforts and concern the government and UNCHR cans also providing effective health service and job opportunity in safer environment to the Burmese refugees. The Burmese refugees are in never-ending financial crisis with many of us suffering from serious health problems.
Let us take a challenge to help our brothers and sisters, Remember! The refugees childrens were still holding hearts under their mothers love and care to study in their own country and go to school from their own house only with faith and hope, which is soon to shine one day! When can their road will lead to the dream of motherland Burma until we witnesses them!
The Burmese refugee is in dire need of help.

To the world I care and to all:
I heard the voices calling, it touches my heart, I tried to reached and find out but no one cares my concerned when I truly knows the fact. The voices waves in me, oh! No, she is! She said “what am I supposed to do?” I do not know what to respond. Soon I realized, if a single women in a family suffered, I am sure, thousands and millions of women in this world will suffered under the supervised of her parents, hubbies, bothers or from the society we living in.
Take a challenge!
If yesterday was the day when we cannot set women’s to free, today is the day to explore the hidden true story women lives, they were precious to me. Women’s are special to me, I respect them. Simple example why I respect is that ‘I am able to read and write cares & love all, because the same women called “my mothers’” brought up here today. I love her, I respect her, if one’s can truly say he love his mother’s, regardless, and he will definitely love all same gender with his mothers’
Set women’s free, we are born with equality, let them fly!fly!fly!
Let the words of empowering women is not just in a words, it should be words with action, words with promise, words with love, words with reality and words with positive social change to all genders.
It’s our roles and responsibly to take action:
A promise is a promise> Time for action to end violence against women> Empower Rural Women – End Hunger and Poverty> Equal rights, equal opportunities> Progress for all> Women and men united to end violence against women and girls> Investing in Women and Girls> Ending Impunity for Violence against Women and Girls> Women in decision-making> Gender Equality Beyond> Building a More Secure Future> Women and HIV/AIDS> Gender Equality and the Millennium Development Goals> Realities and Opportunities> Women and Peace: Women Managing Conflicts> World Free of Violence against Women> Women at the Peace Table> Celebrating the Past.
