It has been two months today since ethnic clashes erupted in Manipur. More than 200 people have died in the riots which started on the evening of May 3 in the state. More than 60,000 people have been displaced; they have lost their homes and are now lodged in about 350 relief camps.
The Wire travelled to various villages of four districts – Kankgpopki, Kakching, Imphal East and Churachandpur – between May 27 and June 1 and spoke to scores of people in the relief camps. In this video, we share stories of people whose life has been affected in myriad ways much beyond what the statistics say and statements of governments seem to reflect.
