UDWJA condole the demise of Ngathingkhui Hungyo

The Ukhrul District Working Journalists’ Association (UDWJA) has expressed profound sympathy and heart-felt condolences to the sudden and untimely demise of the founding Editor of The Aja Daily-a Tangkhul-English bilingual newspaper Mr. Ngathingkhui Hungyo in the wee hours of 10th December, 2015 (Thursday).
“During this hour of grief and mourning, our deepest thoughts and prayers are with the bereaved family’ said a message of the Union.
It added that all members of UDWJA join all the near and dear ones in sharing a deep sense of sorrow in the sudden loss of an enterprising man amongst the elders and better of the Tangkhul community.

Ngathingkhui Hungyo was a man of vision, perseverance and accomplishment. Confronting numerous challenges, he founded and edited the first Tangkhul daily newspaper ‘The Aja Daily’ way back in the early 1990s when technical resources and journalists were scarce amongst the Tangkhul. Today, the successful establishment of this newspaper stands testimony to his sincere endeavors to reach out to the unreached through dissemination of news.
“Through Mr Ngathingkhui Hungyo, today we, the district journalists’ fraternity, are left with a legacy of inspiration and labour. Although he is materially no more, his pioneering vision will remain etched to our memory forever”, the condolence message said.
