Inculcating the sense of brotherhood and reviving the age-old traditions of closeness and friendship between their neighboring tribes, Kyong (Lotha) Students’ Union (KSU) organised a two-day cultural exchange-cum-training programme on May 14 and 15 here at Town Hall, Wokha.
The inaugural function was marked by cultural exchange programme featuring cultural dances and games by Ahoms of Golaghat district, Aos, Sumis, Rengmas and Kyong communities. Parliamentary secretary for prisons, home guards, jail and emergency services Er. W. Kithan, speaking at the function said culture was the entire entity of a human being and that cultures were shared and not exchanged, Er Kithan also emphasized on the need for young people to take up cultural activities in a big way.
Additional chief secretary and development commissioner Alemtemshi Jamir who graced the second session said KSU’s concept of cultural exchange between neighboring tribes was worth adopting by rest of the Nagas. Jamir also cautioned the student community against emerging adverse cultures like votes for money during elections and the tendency for ‘collective lies’ by communities during census by giving bogus counts.
Guest of honor, industries and commerce director, Er. G. Keppen, urged the students to do away with the old Naga traditional mindset of depending on government jobs alone and to try to take up other employment generation activities after getting good education.
AASU vice president Jotin Borah, who accompanied the Ahom cultural troupe, delivered a short speech and also presented the dignitaries with an Ahom traditional ‘kamcha’ each. Greetings were also delivered by additional home secretary CM Tsanglao and special home secretary Thechamo Ezung (both ex-KSU presidents).
At the second day programme hundreds of students were trained by resource persons on various cultural activities.
