Though Loktak Lake is undeniably gorgeous, life on the lake for the local people isn't so easy. 
The lake expanded in 1983 after a large hydroelectric dam was constructed in the area. More than 80,000 hectares of farm and grazing lands flooded as the lake grew. 
A loss of farmland meant people needed to find new work. But there's no industry to be found near Loktak Lake that could provide enough work for the 100,000 people living on its shores. 
People then turned to fishing as a means of supporting themselves. But having thousands of people dependent upon fishing opens up a new can of worms. 
As the water levels sink, pollution levels rise, and the dams obstruct fish migration patterns, overfishing is a serious concern for Loktak Lake.
It's gotten to the point that Manipur now needs to import fish from neighboring states, and migratory birds have stopped coming to the lake because there aren't enough fish to feed them.
How to find a balance between man and nature? We don't know. But it doesn't hurt to be aware of struggles that lie beneath a pretty surface.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don't wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it's at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored. ---Earl Nightingale

When being myself becomes so important🙅🙅 Last night i was sitting by the banks of #loktak with a friend talking about life and family when a #fisherwoman who was passing us by commented crudely that "i spoke like a girl" "kotha kotha ngange" (it's lost in translation) like her effeminate"son-in-law". It was shocking for a moment that a random woman would comment bizzarely just like that. I immediately spoke back saying "what did she mean" "did she mean to demean me?" to which she said "no, no, she was just referring to the similarity to her son-in-law". I then spoke back again "so did you mean to demean your son-in-law and me like that" (implying we are both efiminate and unrespectable guys). She still justified "oh she was just comparing me to him." Then i got really pissed. So i told her "do not ever comment on someone you don't know like that. And that it is absolutely disrespectful and humiliating." She went silent after that. I told her again "do not ever humiliate someone in the way she just did to me." And that "she doesn't not have any right to say such things".
The short encounter left me scarred in a way that made me wonder about how everyone around here would be silently watching and judging me. How each of them would be saying things at my back? Iam still rethinking about what happened yesterday. Such is how people (irrespective of man or woman or parent or relatives) collectively stereotype people. Victimisation is something many of them have no qualms justifying it. So today in the company of like-minded people i decided to be myself even if momentarily.
