Puwarigi Amamba Numit observed
IMPHAL, October 20: Puwarigi Amamba Numit was observed at Iboyaima Shumang Lila Sanglen, Konung Mamang, today on the theme Dignified Integrity. The event was organised by All Club, Organisation, Association and Meira Paibi Lupn ACOAM-Lup.

Y Nabachandra, President UCM, was the chief guest; Ksh Somorendro, President ACOAM-Lup was the president; and Kolomcha Achoubi Khuman Working President, South East Asia Cultural Organisation(SEACO), P Ibochou, Chief Editor, Kangla Pao; and RK Sanahanbi, President of Kanglei Ima Lup(KIL), were the guests of honour of the function.

UCM President Nabachandra stated that Manipur suffered irreplaceable loss about the information connected to its past heritage, religion and politics due to the incineration of the puyas.

Each one of use should attempt to attain self-realization the reason for observing this very significant day, he stated. We must unite with other organizations in observing the occasion and discourage holding separate functions, he added. He appealed to all the indigenous communities to sort out their differences of opinion amicably and resolve to host a single observation in the future.

Ibochou mentioned that unless we posses in depth knowledge about out heritages we cannot achieve development for ourselves in the future. He said each individual can practice the religions of their choice but they should not undermine the significance of own heritage. We have to take the onus of discovering our individual history and share the information with ACOAM-Lup. If different communities succeed in tracing their heritage which is closely related than the inter-community relationship will move towards a better path.

Kolomcha Achoubi Khuman related that King Paheiba and Shanti Das colluded to burn the manuscripts containing all the important records and information of the ancient culture of Manipur. He stated that had the burning of the manuscripts had not happened, the present phenomenon of multiple observations would not have seen the light of day.

He also supported the idea of observing the occasion on a grander scale with advance preparations. This year the observation was arranged in a hasty manner, he said and suggested that there should be prior homework should be done to ensure the participation of representatives from different communities from next year.
