 Tribal Vaganza, a two day festival of music, films and culture concluded on September 14, held at Bethel School complex, Old Showuba, Dimapur with Minister, Higher and Technical Education and Tribal Affairs, Temjen Imna Along as the special invitee.

Addressing the gathering, the minister acknowledged Moa and Aren for being creatively able to invent the musical instruments from the simplest thing that was found all over Nagaland. He also acknowledged the duo for bringing laurels to the state of Nagaland and further encouraged the gathering to emulate the duo. 

He maintained that the state needs more people who accept criticism, negativity and hypocrisy without fear and doubt and work hard. According to him, Naga society was one amongst the most educated societies in India, standing in top section, but reiterated that Nagaland was a state full of poorness. 

“Today’s Nagaland was a broken Nagaland, where youngsters are lazy and always looking for a shortcut”, he added. Imna also stated that change can only come if quality of hard work and sincere efforts are put in the heart and mind by taking responsibility of changing themselves. 

“If you are determined, willing, hardworking, persistent and consistent, God and the whole world will work towards your determination to make you and I successful”, stated the minister. 

He further lamented the fact that he dreamt of a resurgent Nagaland, where people will live in unison without ism, who will not be divided by hypocrisy and sarcasm of laziness and in which anger and frustrationn shall be converted into hard work and determined efforts to achieve for the collective Nagas. 

Speaking to this reporter, Moa Subong said that the Abiogensis had been organising events of such kinds in the past. He further stated that the event was organized to promote upcoming bands from the state and also to promote and uplift indigenous games and sports.

Regarding the movie, Enter My World, which was written, directed and acted by Arenla Subong, she said that the movie in a nutshell spoke about how one should be in touch with their roots and also to have unity amongst themselves without tribalism. 

The movie was released by minister, Temjen Imna Along and songs are sung in Howey tunes.

Earlier, bamboo pole climbing competition was held wherein 20 participants took part. Winner of pole climbing, Hankhüm walked away with a cash of Rs. 10,000 while the runner up, Sorito R received a cash of Rs. 5000.
