Manipur Governor Dr Najma Heptulla Wednesday called for preservation of culture and tradition of different communities living together in Manipur.

“We must remember our cultural roots and practice our cultural tradition regardless of the achievements made in our life,” the Governor said while taking part in the opening ceremony of the curtain raiser of the state level Gaan-Ngai Festival to be held on January 19 in Imphal’s Chingmeirong. 

This is for the first time that the curtain raiser of the Gaan-Ngai festival was celebrated with the Governor at the Raj Bhavan. 

The event is organised by the State Level Gaan-Ngai Celebration Committee, Manipur in collaboration with the Tingkao Ragwang Chapriak Phuam (TRCP).

Gaan-Ngai is the greatest festival of the Zeliangrong community. It literally means the festival of winter season (Gaan or Ganh means winter or dry season and Ngai means festival). 

Heptulla expressed her happiness that Gaan-Ngai festival was beginning from the Raj Bhavan and hoped that the celebration will continue every year at the Raj Bhavan.
