Widows of armed conflicts in Manipur
Ngairangbam Diana Chanu
Armed conflicts in the state of Manipur have affected lives of people from all walks of life in some way or the other. Even though it affects people irrespective of their class, caste, religion, community, gender etc. the degree and the way it affects are different for a different section of the society. Effects of armed conflicts are felt to a higher degree and in a different way when it comes to the most marginalized section of the society. Likewise, men and women are affected by armed conflict in many different ways. Women may become both indirect victims when they lose their near and dear ones and direct victims when they are subjected to torture, rape, harassment etc. The present study is the narration of four widows who are the victims of armed conflict in the state Manipur. It is about their life and the challenges they are facing living amongst the armed groups, police, armies, society, and their family.
