The 20th cultural day-cum-Sühkrühnyie of the Phüsachodümi Youth Society was celebrated at Phüsachodü village, Phek on January 25 with advisor to chief minister of Nagaland, Abu Metha as the special guest.
Speaking at the programme, Metha called upon the gathering to use technology for transparency and strengthen the foundation of education. He also urged the youth to use social media responsibly.

Citing the example of Chekrovolu Swüro, he said the youth are doing well despite the limited resources.

He encouraged the gathering to connect well with the outside world to bring the world at the doorsteps. “We cannot be left behind, but must emerge as winners”, Meru stated.
Speaking as an honour guest, director of Tourism, Ajanuo Belho, encouraged the gathering to keep alive and preserve the rich and unique identity of the Nagas. She stated that with the launch of the village walk, it will promote rural tourism.
