Naga Musicians Collective (NMC), a group of like-minded musicians of the 80s, organised a programme to acknowledge upcoming talented musicians of Nagaland and gifted them with musical instruments at RCEMPA, Jotsoma on Friday. 

The three recipients are Muno Shiu, Imnainla Jamir and Kilang Jamir. 

Speaking as the special guest, State Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities, Diethono Nakhro described music as a “powerful language” and a “language of the soul” that can connect anyone, anywhere regardless of the differences. “Music has the power to change the world because it has the power to touch and move people to do positive things, to change and once people change, the world can change too,” she added. Lauding Kilang Jamir, a young differently-abled man, for following his passion for music, Nakhro pointed out about the misconceptions about disability among people even today.

Referring to the negative attitudes-- bullying, humiliations etc., Nakhro said “a lot of shame and stigma is dumped on people who live with disabilities, and this is particularly tough on young disabled people”. She asserted that there was nothing to be ashamed of to live with any kind of disability. Leaving a word of message for the young people, she said, “Be proud of who you are. Love yourself, embrace your disability, embrace your flaws, your imperfections, nobody is perfect so, embrace your difference and imperfections.” Advisor TaFMA, Theja Meru viewed that though the COVID situation has been a rough time, it has not dampened the spirit of the music and arts fraternity of Nagaland.

“I feel that in the past month of using the social media, we have let the country learn our initiatives for being creative and also coming up with bright ideas” said Meru. he also encouraged young musicians to dream together and make Nagaland a centre of music and musical and also continue to inspire humanity.
