Abstract: The early history of print media for Manipur however remained less documented. It is unfortunate that the newspapers which were published before the end of the Second World War became unavailable antics.

It traces the origin of newspapers in the state from the late 1910s till the merger of the state with Indian Union in 1949 on 15th October. It also attempts to exemplify, whenever it deems appropriate, the gravity of the political situation in the context of journalism by scaling historic events related the era of any particular newspapers. It is not, by any means, a complete compendium of the Manipuri journalism.
