Against the backdrop of early and expected solution to the Naga political issue, Nagaland governor R.N. Ravi expressed optimism that Nagas were at the cusp of history as a new dawn has begun for a new era of peace and prosperity.

Ravi said this while addressing the Tokhu Emong Mini Hornbill at Wokha town as special guest on Thursday, reports DIPR.

Further, the governor who is also the centre’s Interlocutor for the Naga Peace Talks, invoked the spirit of ‘Senchumta’ which he said meant “reconciliation and coming together” that was appropriate and befitting to the situation. Ravi thus called on all to overcome bitterness and past bad memories and instead come together in a spirit of forgive and forget, to create a new beginning for unity, prosperity, development and brotherhood.

The governor also lauded Lotha Hoho and Lothas in general for supporting him in his modest endeavour to bring peace to the land even before he was appointed as governor. Ravi expressed the hope that the Lotha community would continue to support him in the coming days.

Ravi maintained that Nagas are inheritors of a rich culture and civilisation and encouraged the people to ensure that their rich culture did not fade with the onslaught of modernity, technology and lifestyle but to continue with performing and observing festivals which bind them together.

Also speaking on the occasion and on behalf of the celebrants, Adviser S&T,IT and N & RE and chief host Mmhonlumo Kikon, assured of full support and cooperation with the governor in his endeavour to bring peace, unity and reconciliation among Nagas.

Dressed in their beautiful and colourful traditional attires, thousands of people – both young and old – attended the festival. Words of greetings were also delivered by United Sangtam Likhum Punji and Ao Senden president.

Highlights of the celebration included cultural presentations by Sumi and Assamese cultural troupes.
