Imphal, April 12:

The Hun – Thadou Cultural Festival 2024 was observed successfully on April 7, 2024, at MP’s Club, North Avenue, New Delhi, as planned. Attendees included invited guests and Thadou individuals from around the world, both in person and online. This year’s festival, held under the theme “Solidarity and Brotherhood,” focused on promoting Zo unity, highlighting the distinct identity of the Thadou tribe, and paying tribute to the innocent victims of violence in Manipur.
The event, in contrast to previous years, took on a more subdued tone, omitting the usual cultural extravagance. This decision was made in light of the current situation in Manipur and the collective suffering experienced by the Thadou community, which has been significantly affected.
Notable attendees at the event included Pu Lalhmachhuana, President of the Central Young Mizo Association (CYMA); Pu H. Lalthianghlima, President of Mizo Zirlai Pawl-GHQ; and Pu Dr. Seiboi Singsit, Retired IFS, who served as Chief Guest, Functional President, and Chief Host/Hun-Pa respectively.
The program commenced with a prayer led by Pu Dehminlen Thadou from Thadou Christian Fellowship, Delhi & NCR, followed by a welcome address from Pu Nehkholal Thadou, Chairman of HFOC-2024. The cultural significance of Thadou Hun was emphasized, noting its recognition as a Restricted Holiday by the Government of Manipur.
Rev. TS Thadou of Thadou Christian Fellowship, Guwahati, dedicated the event with a reading from the Bible, underscoring a shift from ancestral spirit worship to prayers to the Almighty. A moment of silence was observed to honor victims of Manipur violence.
In his address, Pu Lalhmachhuana stressed the importance of strengthening unity and brotherhood between Thadous and Mizos, particularly within CYMA. He highlighted the Thadou tribe’s significance within the broader Zo community and encouraged peaceful settlement and unity among all.
The event also featured a release program for Sinkhup 2.0, the souvenir booklet of Hun 2024, by Pu Lalhmachhuana. The booklet contains messages from various dignitaries and articles addressing Thadou culture, identity, and pertinent issues.
Despite opposition and threats from Kuki organizations and leaders, including PS Haokip of KNO/KNA, who vowed to disrupt the event, the festival proceeded smoothly. Organizers expressed gratitude to attendees and reiterated their commitment to peace, non-violence, and justice.
With an unwavering spirit of brotherhood and faith, the Thadou community remains optimistic about the future, believing that through unity and God’s blessings, they will overcome challenges and usher in a new era of prosperity and healing for their land and people.
