Withee Bible College (WBC), Dimapur Monday celebrated “Ahuna Kuchu Pine” (post harvest fest) here at the college campus with MLA, Apok Jamir as chief guest. Speaking at the occasion, chief guest maintained that Ahuna festival was a celebration of joy and happiness for the abundant harvest blessed by God. Highlighting the significance of the festival, Jamir said “the festival (post harvest festival) is present in tribes all over Nagaland and communities around the world.” Commenting on social responsibilities Jamir emphasized the root cause of all the complexities and disenchantment in the world today was “within us.” “There is suspicion, disunity and bloodshed everywhere and a fear within our minds and if such developments continue, the future looks bleak,” he said. Highlighting about global warming Jamir said it was a sign of “our misdoings”, and added that “if we want to change the future, it is our responsibility to take the initiative.” In this regard he urged the gathering not only to be onlooker but contribute in ones own way to rectify it. The MLA, however, said if there was sincerity, commitment and love, the venture that the college embarked to win souls would be successful. Relating the popular adage “a hungry man is an angry man”, the chief guest said “if we are filled physically and spiritually we will be able to guide the society better.” In a short exhortation, former IGP (prison), N. Tali Jamir urged the communities to preserve their culture and traditions by organizing such occasions. He also advised the students to become devoted Christians and sacrifice time to spread the word of God. Earlier, the programme started with an invocation by WBC lecturer, Ranjit and introduction and gifts presentation by WBC founder, Rev. Dr. Vikheshe Chishi. Other highlights of the programme included choreography, guitar display, melody horn display, quartet, folk songs, war dance and preparation of Ahuna.
