DIMAPUR — The Inpui Students’ Union Delhi (Inpui Ningbwan Indung Delhi) celebrated Karing Ngei (Festival of the Living), the biggest celebration of the Inpui (Kabui) Naga tribe, on January 12 at Nehru Park in New Delhi.

According to an update, the festival is celebrated in various Inpui (Kabui) villages and localities throughout Manipur and Nagaland, and it is significant culturally as the premier celebration within the Inpui (Kabui) Naga tribe.
