The Hindu published ten items including four front page news items, opinion pieces by Dimapur-based Nagaland Page's editor Monalisa Changkija (Pride as well as prejudice, Feb 8) and Shillong Times' editor Patricia Mukhim (Tradition, democracy and gender, Feb 10), and two editorials (Bowing down to patriarchy, Feb 10 and A battle lost?Feb 23).
Opinion pieces published in The Hindu were authored by the North East's best known women editors, Monalisa Changkija and Patricia Mukhim. It reproduced about eight opinion pieces from the "national" media, including three written by Nagaland Page's editor Monalisa Changkija for The Hindu, Deccan Chronicle, and The Indian Express. (One of Morung's editorials (Jan 19) also praised Monalisa Changkija's editorials: "If one wants to make sense of the current imbroglio unfolding before the slated elections to the Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) in Nagaland State, the best place to go would be the editorials of the Nagaland Page.") One of the pieces Morung borrowed from Hindustan Times criticised the indifference of the rest of the country toward the problem of women of Nagaland: "nearly a million women are being forcibly shut out of the political sphere in Nagaland, but strangely the rest of India has largely remained nonchalant.

The keynote speech to be delivered by Monalisa Changkija, Editor & Publisher, Nagaland Page was presented by her daughter Tasungtetla Longkumer.
Speaking on the theme, Changkija stated that "overall societal existence is incomplete without women." For Changkija, "Women are the lead players in this drama called life," more so in "indigenous communities and societies like ours." "Today as we observe and celebrate indigenous peoples across the globe, our voices must be amplified through women's lens because these are the only lens that gives the most rational and credible picture of how the most peripheralized half of the earth holds up the sky," she remarked.

"Broadly speaking externalities like economic needs, political compulsion, socio-cultural and religious demands have narrowed press freedom in Nagaland," says Monalisa Changkija, Editor of Nagaland Page.
Asked whether these are outcomes of Nagaland's "conflict" status, she notes, "It is obvious that the seeds of press freedom lie in this and so do the reasons for conflict. It's like a tsunami effect." Changkija elaborates that while talking about conflict, one must necessarily ask why "ours is a conflict zone" but cautions against using it as a convenient excuse. Every society has conflict one way or other, she reasons. For Changkija, a free press is not just from the government but society too. "We are products of the milieu. Instead of creating change, we follow. We do not provide leadership but mutely follow what is happening. We don't create opinion but we give to people what they want." Changkija also expresses concerns over the practice of journalists receiving monetary benefits while reporting an event as "scandalous practice and against the ethos of the fourth estate." Likewise, Changkija stipulates that despite all the external constraints, if one has integrity, strength of character, courage of conviction, one will do what s/he is supposed to. Talking about content like memoirs, felicitation and acknowledgment, Changkija said it is time we put integrity before economic needs. At the end of the day, Changkija concludes, "Freedom of the press is an ideal.
