Former minister (IPR) and senior Congressman Thomas Ngullie on Sunday said women should play the role of “ambassadors” and build bridges between villages and communities.
Addressing a get-together comprising women from Lakhuti village whose spouse belonging to another village and also women married to Lakhuti villagers, the former minister who attended the meeting as special invitee said women are not only home makers but also peace makers.
To Lakhuti women married to other villagers and communities, Thomas, also from Lakhuti village, said they should act as ambassadors and try to foster better relations between different villages and communities. To women from other villagers married to affluent Lakhtuti villagers, he said women must understand that family members, old friends and villagers still have “expectations” from a wealthy or successful Lakhutian.Thomas also added problems and unnecessary tension occurs when there is lack of understanding on the part of the women and that peace always prevails in homes and society where there are good mothers.
Pastor, Lotha Baptist Church, Kohima, Rev. Mhathung Yanthan delivered the message.
