Paper long abstract:

The present study is a reflection of the people towards the phenomena of violence prevailing in a society. The state of Manipur has been under the realm of violence and social disorder since time immemorial. There have been man incidences of social movements and ethnic violence that the state has experienced. One of such is the insurgency movement that has been in the state of Manipur for the last half century or so. The individual concept of right and freedom to speech in a society has been under the shadow of community feeling and oneness in the state. When one comes in the community level, the individuality of the person becomes unexposed; be it in terms of their thought or expression of ideas on the act of violence. The paper is a result of the individual's opinion on the ongoing violence related to insurgency, counter insurgency, public protest in the present society of Manipur. There is a paradigm shift on the minds of the people towards uncivil movements, and the value of the individuality on the part of building a peaceful society.

Keywords: Violence, Insurgency, Individuality, Community, Manipur, North east India.
