Imphal, March 1:

Manipur Students’ Association Delhi (MSAD) has appealed the people of the state for restoration of the communal harmony among the various community which has been coexisted since time immemorial.
In a statement issued by its president Shaikhom Chingkheinganba, MSAD strongly condemn any hate speech to defame any individuals or community which might triggered hatred among the people.
“Different communities have been living together. However, various problems have been popping up, as we can see by our eyes, since after we merged into the Indian state. Manipur is a place where different communities which have different religions are living together. Each community has its own culture and identity, but all are bound under a single identity called Manipur. So we are all Manipuris”, the statement said.
It added that in the history of Manipur, there has been no battle or conflict between communities based on religion like that Hindu-Muslim riots as happened in India or crusades in Europe. But today it is happening in the state, the statement added.
“Every community has the right to demand everything they need. Instead of demanding their rights from the State, we see the wrong aspiration of targeting against one community. We take it seriously; it will create communal hatred among the communities. It disturbs the friendly co-existence of different communities” the statement said.
MSAD said that the organization condemn any hate campaign/ hate speech which are trying to destroy communal harmony. Every issue raised by any community can be achieved with united support.
The MSAD said that the association is of Manipuri students based in Delhi and it will always works for all the communities living together in Manipur.

The seven-day festival of Manipuri Solo Dance Festival “Okchari Yeningtha” which is organized by the Jawaharlal Nehru Manipur Dance Academy (JNMDA), Imphal was inaugurated yesterday at the auditorium of JNMDA, Imphal.

Chaotombi Singh and Director (i/c), JNMDA P. Bilash Singh graced the  inaugural function as Chief Guest, Special Invitee, Guest of Honour and President respectively.

Addressing the occasion, Dr. Ratan Thiyam told that well known artiste used to practice 6-8 hours daily for 10-15 years but in our context, we use to practice more at the time of festival. For an artiste, there is no end until and unless he/she reached the top position. Instead of confining merely to our state, we need to see or watch the standard that what other dance forms have touched in different parts of the country so that young, promising dancers of Manipur can derive source of inspiration from them.

Meitei Jagoi remains still for long time due to lack of resources, so we need to step forward and uplift the same with JNMDA.  Students of dance are not equally treated as students of other fields and subjects. He advised them to focus only to what they are doing in any field as well as to know both theory and practice thoroughly.  

It may be mentioned that the Academy is organising such festival with the aim of encouraging and showcasing the talent of the upcoming stars and giving them the opportunity to display their individual talents. 34 young dancers from 24 different cultural institutions will participate  in the “Okchari Yeningtha Festival. The festival will continue till 28th of this month.
