Pillai Set To Grace Ukhrul With Peace Message

IMPHAL, Feb 27: Union home secretary GK Pillai will be participating in the 2nd Manipur Tribal Cultural Exchange Program 2011 set to be celebrated from March 4-6, 2011, in Ukhrul district headquarters.

The cultural fete which is being organized under the theme “enlivening our cultural dynamics” has a stated objective of bridging the bond between various tribal groups of the State of Manipur.

Cultural troupes from Churachandpur, Chandel, Tamenglong, Senapati, Ukhrul and Sadar Hills will enthrall the revelers during the 3-day jamboree in the lap of the scenic Ukhrul hills.

“Participating in one common program where they sleep and feast with one another doesn’t come very often, so this tribal carnival is being poised as a medium and a forum for the 32 plus tribal communities of Manipur to forget their past differences and celebrate and enjoy their rich cultural heritage together,” ATSUM stated.

Tangkhul Katamnao Saklong (TKS) will host the 3-day cultural extravaganza which is being organized by All Tribal Students’ Union Manipur (ATSUM) under the co-sponsorship of NEZCC (Dimapur), IGNOU (Manipur Centre), Manipur Aids Control Society (MACS), Tribal Research Institute, Imphal (TRI) and Arts and Culture Department of the Government of Manipur.

GK Pillai, Union home secretary, DS Poonia, Manipur chief secretary and N Ashok Kumar, deputy commissioner of Ukhrul district will grace the inaugural function on March 4, as chief guest, functional president and guest of honor respectively.

United Naga Council (UNC) president Samson Remmei and Kuki Inpi Manipur (KIM) chief Thangkhosei Haokip will also participate in the event.
