 The Delhi Ao Senso Telongjem (DAST) celebrated Tsüngremmong at Sir Shankar Lal Concert Hall, North Campus, Delhi University (DU) on August 4. 

A press release by DAST general secretary, Nungsangshiba Jamir stated that the main speaker of the program, Temjen Imna Along, minister, Higher Education & Technical Education, said that Nagas were like the Jews in America, contributing to the growth and development of this big nation through sacrificial works in different fields. He further said that the North East was the heart of India and had enough potential and resources to produce for the entire country and even South East Asia. Temjen Imna also appealed to academicians on behalf of the North Students to take good care of North East students because they all come from humble backgrounds. He pointed out that some parents even sell their property and land to send their children to study.

Dr. Walunir, in the presidential welcome note, exhorted the gathering to celebrate not only the tangible culture and tradition of the Aos but contribute the best of their traditional values of honesty, hard work and selfless sacrifice to the mainstream culture so that mainstream India would be enriched by Ao traditional values.

The program was attended by Aos of Delhi and well-wishers including academicians, technocrats, police personnel, politicians, businessmen, social workers and students. Dr. Imkongmeren, cultural secretary of DAST gave the vote of thanks. 

The celebration exhibited Ao folkdance, folksongs, traditional costume, indigenous dinner and other forms of fun and frolic. The program was compèred by Yutensangla and Imkongmeren. The Delhi Ao Students Union also performed a cultural dance. In the Ao folksong competition the prize was bagged by Watsü New Life Self Help Group.
