AMTU Greets People On Lui-Ngai-Ni

IMPHAL, Feb 11: All Manipur Tribal Union (AMTU) has conveyed its special greetings to the Nagas of Manipur on the auspicious seed sowing Lui-Ngai-Ni festival slated to be held on February 15 next in Ukhrul and has pitched for Ukhrul district to be developed as a tourist hotspot.

AMTU general secretary Romeo Bungdon sent its special greetings to the Nagas of Manipur on the ensuing auspicious Lui-Ngai-Ni celebration which is the sole Naga seed sowing festival. AMTU solicited the blessing of God for a bumper harvest laced with peace and social harmony through the spirit of the festival.

“May the almighty God bless through this festive occasion so that they all may be able to sow various productive seeds to reap bumper crops with surplus to refill their economic prosperity,” it said, asking also that “the Lord enable them to sow distinct seeds of peace and social harmony flavored with temperance that their next neighbors may assimilate to harvest and share the reap of the generous serenity.”

Pitching strongly for the development of Ukhrul—with its unique topography which is an extension of the great Himalaya and a picturesque landscape throughout the year—as a significant tourist destination, it said that scenic Ukhrul has the potential to match popular tourist destinations like Shimla, Mousoorie, Sikkim, Bhutan, Arunachal Pradesh and Darjeeling in terms of tourist footfall given the attractions such as Siroi Lily, the turf of sun lily, Khankhui cave and marvelous Marble Cave in Hundung/Hunphung at MOVA hill just nearby NH 150.

“The beauty of the Marble Cave can be ascertained only after seeing it practically as it is amazingly engraved by its natural form of quartzite semi precious stones which indeed is fascinating with overhanging crystals at the dome shaped marble ceiling,” it said.
