Dimapur, Oct. 18 (EMN): Christian School, Tangha, in collaboration with the Government High School, Yotan; Government Middle School; Government Primary School, Sector (A); and Government Primary School, Sector (B), celebrated cultural day-cum-literary competition on October 15 at the conference hall of Tangha village in Longleng district on the theme “BumienTeipu” (Prehistoric).

Speaking on the theme, pastor P Hamphe Phom, insisted that young generations should follow in the footsteps of older people to keep their culture alive. He has emphasised on the importance of correctly addressing a senior, stated a DIPR report.

Hamphe also talked about various kinds of crops and seeds, which could be sowed at different times of the year to the young gathering. Besides, he cautioned that there would be disorder in the society if young people fail to keep their culture and tradition alive. He further stated that without tradition, they would remain ignorant of so many things and lose the sense of belonging to their tribe.

Other highlights of the programme included spelling bee competition, group song competition, and scripture reading for both senior and junior categories. A poem ‘Khadam Yannyau’ was presented by Danja Eungloak, GMS Tangha, while Pu Ashu (folk song) and Um-oh were performed by students of GHS Yotan. Vitak Pang and Pho pu (tapestry) were performed by Momchingla and students of GPS (A) presented a folk song.

Bukam K Phom, in-charge of Christian School Tangha, delivered the welcome address and Ongtok Lung said the invocation. B Li-e Mukho, a former teacher of Christian School Tangha, pronounced the benediction.
