Merit and demerit of "Yek masel Lounaba"

I sincerely tried very hard to bring out a concrete answer on this topic. But we cant conclude with a common decision. Scientifically there are many points which favour "NOT AN ISSUE" but for a general consensus, it is still "AN ISSUE".
Sorry, I cant publish the contributors comment/opinion over here.

  1. i gotcha blif it nly if sme1 cn xplain 2 me d genetic wrk out bhind it. our gene pool is neva static n so do our enviroment too. dey r alwys dynamic n eva changing n r constanty interacting wit 1 another, dus bringng changes in our gene pool. mutation too cnnot b ruled out. mre den diz hw cn 1 maintain d purity of blood 4 such a long period, 4rm time immemorale. ya d case cn b considerd 4 doz hu share a common time frame n r closely related.... but wat we r talking here is about d huge population dat resides in our Manipur, n of all doz uncountable sub-clans dat cmes undr a single clan again. basically speaking all of us on diz earth hv a common ancestor regardless of cast,clan wateva. even an insect n we humans have a common ancestor, we r vry much simalar in our embryonic lif. m nt going agnst my custom nor disrespecting my ancestors but in reality we need 2 shed off all d egos n hv a serious discussion 2 go 2 d roots... saying itz smthng dat has bin laid dwn in ancestral time is not d xplaination.... so pliz sme1 tell me d truth bhind diz...

  2. Kiranjit, hope u're strong in Biology. This issue also a big headache for me. I dono how to ecplain but as per my experience its really thrilling. My neighbours, where couples are YEK THOKNABA, they never have a gud life. Child are mentally retarded, always quarrel, no haapy life, unhealthy.... In tamil nadu they have a bright culture of marrying within their relatives. they marry their own sister daughter/sons. Then the child is fully handicapped. I beleive u wont like ur child to be handicap. I respect this SALAI culture to bring a happy lie & family.

  3. hey jagjit. u r tlking abt ur nghbour a case u hv witnesed. nw if we invstgate all d handicapped cases n hv a detail case history, u will b surprise 2 learn dat nt all d case r due 2 ur so called YEK, infact d figures dat cmes out of it satisfies equally wit dat of ur YEK. I can find U many a number of yek sibblings whose I.Q is above par.n m truely sorry 2 learn dat U hv posted diz comment without properly reading my former post, d case ur talking abt, of dat of Tamil Nadu comes under d category of sharing a common time frame. pliz do read dem agn. diz scientific knwldge is quite complicated 4 sme n realy hard 4 us too to mak dem undstnd. muslims do marry der cousins n many hav got a happy family but I knw datz nt my answr coz science relies nt only in statistics but in d basic facts. itz all abt gene pools n itz compatibility, n pliz don't worry abt my kids coz wen I choose my wife I won't b rlyng on YEK but science n all dat is required is just a single session of genetic councelling, dat will do, n blif me if thngs didn't favour me, my mghty culture called BIOTECHNOLOGY is der 2 help me out n tak care of my kids. happy blogging.

  4. d modern civilization in which we r living hv reachd itz zenith by dissolving many an evil customs n absorving d good 1s, afta rectifying many an odd 1s n preserving d 1s which r essential. respecting 1s custom is our soul duty but is rectifying d odd 1s a sin, afta al we humans hv formulated dem n n we humans r not neccessarily true all d times. history is evident. if we hv got a proper knwhw of smthng n hv d solution, den Y sud we go by doz old inconvinent methodologies. itz time 2 open our mind n c things wit a different perspective, a much rational 1s. itz jus nt abt diz YEK issue but der r many such elements which needs our concern. my conclusion 4 yek issue will b dat Y don't we go 4 d much seek n reliable genetic compatibility quotient test, instead of leaving things half-way jus bcoz U r YEK or watso eva, even if d test fails, blif me still der r further solutions!!!!! Y live a harsh life wen U hv got every rite 2 b happy, itz jus a matter of choice.

  9. I should join that too. See if we find out our paternity we almost have the same mtDNA( inherited from mother to the child) on the other hand Y chromosome from the father is transfered only to the boy child. So it keeps on changing. We have strong words over the YEK. I do believe it but where is the prove of 100%. Do this genetic disorders occurs with each and everyone who mrries the same Yek. Ofcourse there are rules in other parts of the world of not getting the right to marry their blood relatives. But thats only upto a certain extent. So what do you think everyone of the same Yek cant mate. please post your comments. and please someone help me on my work..

  10. we should believe the culture of yek.it is an exellent idea that our ancestor put forward for the upcoming generation. even though they does not have the scientific knowledge but they have a remarkable mentality for the betterment of the coming generation. we should appreciate them. i want to convey a message to those who does not believe to yek that there is strong genetic evidence for not to wed between same yek.

    1. who said lack of scientific, they had had, so many references are there, it is same as plant phenomenon, since long time ago Mendel, the father of genetics, already proved in pea plants, it is due to hybrid vigor phenomenon, closely related species always exposed their recessive genes which are weak, lethal, fragile, in ongoing environment, effect of "yek-lounaba" is due to the inbreeding depression, which caused segregation of their genes effect generation after generation. Many scientist already studied in plant like petunia flower about the inbreeding depression, in arabidopsis plant about the phenomenon and even in tomato plant what is the reason behind the hybrid vigor in plant recently, its all about mating of closely related species which does no show hybrid vigor, "yek-lounaba" is a kind of brother-sister mating in science, which is problematic during cell division, when zygotes are formed, and eventually leads to chromosome defective, lethal above all. that's why our olden forefather had scientific concept too, even we didt have written records, it is an art and science without concept of art cannot go together..

  11. the yek salai of leisangthem is both salang-leishangthem and moirang. will there be any effect if thokchom(moirang yek) and leishangthem weds?
