Toyang Chang, MLA, stated that many were forgetting about “our” unique culture and tradition by chasing western culture. 

Toyang as special guest said this while addressing at the 25th celebration of Krurhe Peli 14 at Krurhe Rülichü, Chatsa on March 10. Expressing that he was truly touched by the traditional and cultural mood, he admitted that it has made him realise how people were forgetting their own culture and tradition. 

He said that it was an opportune time to introspect and retrospect, what the past leaders had done to bring “us” together through peace by keeping “our” culture and tradition alive with the formation of the Peli. He also said that the present leaders were doing a good job following up and should do their best to keep it alive for the future generation. 

Chang mentioned that Nagas were going through a rough phase, wherein minds were filled with hatred, ism, disunity, jealousy and negative thoughts and losing respect for one another. Stressing that jubilee was a time for forgiveness, Toyang said that there should be forgiveness towards one another for the past and move forward to a better future.  

He also stressed on the importance of looking at the brighter side of life and being ambassadors of change, rather than complaining or judging but by being a part of the change aspired.  

The peli (peer group) had also constructed a rest house (Rülichü) called Krurhe Rülichü which was inaugurated by Toyang Chang.  

Organizing committee convenor Kekhrielelie Tsiekha in his speech stated that in the year 1995, the peli celebrated their first Sekrenyi at late Neidilhoulie Vizo’s  residence . The peli consists of both men and women aged between 35-41. He thanked the deputy commissioner of Kohima, Thejawelie Grogery Sote, for giving them the opportunity to construct the rest house and also expressed gratitude to God for His blessings at success of the event. He also thanked all the well-wishers. To keep cultural and traditional values alive, the Peli had also organised indigenous traditional games including folk song and war cry. Ebenezer Baptist Church pastor Keviyiekielie Linyü earlier gave the invocation.
