The venue construction for Aoleang cum State Road Show 2010 at Mon in the Public Ground is master planned and designed by Er. Cheong Konyak in the shape of an Angh’s head, wearing a traditional head gear. All the materials used for construction of the Rostrum and Stalls are purely indigenous to Mon District.
According to an official bulletin, the dimension of the entire hall is 210 X 220 Sq. ft. in area with a height of 40 ft. The main stage/rostrum where the VVIPs, officials, public leaders and Anghs will be accommodated is designed in the shape of a traditional headgear of the Konyak Nagas. The two side halls consisting of exhibition stalls cum public sitting indicate ear shells. Both the head gear and the ear shell signify Naga culture and tradition.
The ramp connecting the heap of stones indicates the human nose. This heap of stones signifies a traditional altar (where human skulls are kept). The two eyes are indicated by the traditional gong and the log drum measuring 26 X 4 Sqft. indicates the mouth.
The grand structure constructed which is traditionally designed with the use of local materials is the largest in Mon District, and possibly could be amongst the largest thatch houses in the world.
Meanwhile, as an important event of the State Road Show 2010 at Mon, an interactive Development workshop will be held at the DC’s conference hall, on April 7from 2 pm to 6 pm. All the Heads of the Department, Konyak Gazetted Officers and all the NGOs of Mon district have been requested to attend the seminar. The seminar will be grouped into four parts including Agri allied Sector, Industrial Sector, Social Sector and Infrastructure Sector. Each group will submit a sheet of recommendation for the development of the respective sector to the Planning and Coordination department for real implementation.
