Festival of praise- I organized by Borlengri Ao Baptist Arogo Youth Department was held on Tuesday with BDO Tening S Chuba Longkumer as chief guest. The programme was conducted on the theme ‘joy of divine inspiration’.
Addressing the gathering, the chief guest in his speech emphasized on the importance of music, which he added was God’s greatest gift to mankind. He also said that it was only through songs that Christian missionaries could spread the gospel throughout the Naga hills.
Asserting that songs were powerful than nuclear weapons, faster than computers and the best medicine available, Longkumer said that it was the only medium which can be used for myriad purposes. Lauding the singers for receiving the gift from God, he also compared them to angels and termed them as peace makers, who can bring about changes through their melodies.
While maintaining that people do not qualifications to become a singer, Longkumer added that songs can traverse anywhere across the world and yet remain immortal. Taking excerpts from the Bible, the chief guest also said that songs have supernatural powers which can heal everyone and bring peace all around.
The highlights of the programme included special presentations from renowned singers including Samaro, Bendang Imchen, Tiameren and Highland Oracle. Special appearance was also made by BSNL Laughter Challenge Winner ‘Born Again’ (Purniken). Huldah, Debarah and Maraim houses also took part in the festival.
