He started with a quote from Shakespeare’s ‘Twelfth Night’,  “If music be the food of love, play on…” and said Nagaland as ‘Land of Festivals’ welcome the guests of artists in the likewise manner. 

Speaking on “My Culture, My Mother (Integration through Culture), Sooryakrishnamoorthy stated that there are lots of definitions for ‘Culture’ and said that his best definition is, “Culture is concern for others”. He went on giving sizable stories and incidents where it indicated what culture is. He further said that artists are people who are different from people like Doctors, Advocates, Soldiers and the likes. Artists are ones who know what is justice and injustice, right and wrong, good and bad, beauty and ugliness. And how one should identify the artists is how we look at them. They will not be with tools like the former ones.
