10/9/2011

9 Sector AR under HQ IGAR(South) organised a cultural event at Keithelmanbi from 8th to 9 Oct 2011. The event was organized in association with SPIC MACAY (Manipur Chapter) to expose the people of Keithelmanbi including Assam Rifles personnel to the rich culture, traditions and art forms of Manipur. To promote the talent of youth and budding artistes, schoolchildren and youth were specially invited to perform events showcasing various dances of Manipur. Amongst the programmes of the event were tribal dances of Kuki and Naga tribes, bamboo dance, Pung Cholom and other enthralling items. The spectators were enchanted and captivated by the quality of the performances by the young boys and girls. The rich culture and tradition of Manipur was also depicted in the colourful handloom clothes, attire and handicrafts worn by the participants. The event also provided an opportunity to these schoolchildren who belonged from all communities to interact with each other and build friendships. Maj Gen UK Gurung, YSM, IGAR(S) thanked the participants and reiterated that AR being “Friends of Manipur”, will continue to provide all support and assistance for such cultural events to build a bond of friendship within all communities
