Yeng Minna Si is a media organization located in Imphal, Manipur (India). Originally a brainchild of Siddharth Haobijam ,an award winning photo journalist , it has come a long way from its inception as a facebook page to include multiple professionals and aspiring photo journalists.
Yeng Minna Si has so far produced one complete work on the Nupi Maanbi of Manipur (transgender of Manipur). The complete work was the culmination of three years documentation of the Nupi Maanbi. It was the result of the collaboration of Yeng Minna Si and various non government organisations including AMANA (apex transgender group of Manipur) , Maruploi foundation and CORE ,among others. The work was multi platform in nature and included photo feature in reputed online news portal, printed news features and a video documentary. The publications included both Indians and abroad.The video was also screened at reputed places both in Manipur and Assam .
