Many people believe that someone who has made a personal fortune will know how to make an entire community/society more prosperous.

A nascent Kuki society, whose total journey into modern civilization is hardly 100 years old; has not produced industrialists or social entrepreneurs and does not even agree on a common identity – Kuki or Mizo…. unfortunately, will agree on one falsity. The ‘miracle power’ of the bureaucrats to solve all the ills of society. The minority Kuki elite class including the elected representatives landed affluent and the rich is not the answer to the maladies of the Kuki society.

Do we need to remind ourselves of the official meaning of a bureaucrat? Oxford dictionary defines a bureaucrat as “an official in a government department, in particular one perceived as being concerned with procedural correctness at the expense of people’s needs.”

We should expect (and as a matter of democratic good governance, must consistently demand) solutions and answers from our elected representatives be it from the local village authority leaders, MDC, MLAs, or the MPs. However, aside from the elected ones, it will be inappropriate to expect societal transformation voluntarily emanating from the hands of bureaucracy or the rich affluent few. The simple and straight reason is of mandate conflict or conflict of interest.

Whereas the elected leaders have the constitutional mandate to work for community and constituency development, the other two actors do not.

Coming back to the argument Kuki tehi IAS, IPS nei tam jeh a khangtoudi hileu hen Manipur Kacha Naga hosanga ikhan tou ma² jeng diu ahi tai. I am not claiming that the civil servants or the ‘officers class’ in Kuki society are completely unproductive for society. On the contrary, if all the ‘officers’ in our society can get together with the elected representatives (MDC, MLA) to adopt a village each of his/her choice, the elite class of Kuki society still have much greater potential to effectively change the fate of Kuki society. This argument may not sit well with our Kuki’s officers’ audiences. But at some point, we have to swallow the bitter pills for a remedy.

The maladies of Kuki society today are no longer a case of mere under-development that can be remedied by ‘binging’ in development. What we probably need is community/societal transformation.
A transformed Kuki society which may sound idealistic at this juncture but surely not utopian – in which, instead of one large donation from an officer, MLA, or a contractor for a community work/event, each community member, including the poorest is the donor or the financier going by the principle of “each one contributes to his/her capacity’.

Progress and transformation of any community have never entirely rested only on one but rather on multiple factors and actors. Case studies of successful community transformation around us and most developing countries tell us about the need for the public-private-community partnerships for any meaningful societal development.

In our case, key stakeholders in community development must include village authority/chief, women and youth organisations, local church, and any additional CSO intervention will be a bonus.

To rest my case, I like to reiterate that no single stakeholder is too powerful to create a development miracle nor any too weak not to be a critical contributor.

Tahchapa Tahchanu!
