Nagaland News

Dimapur, October 31: Joining the rest of the Zeliang community, Benreului Nkwa Kohima celebrated 49th Langsimngyi festival at Highland park Meriema on October 31.
Dr Ilang acknowledged the vision of the pioneering elder members for forming the Benreului Nkwa Kohima back in 1973 to bring the community together.
Also raising concern about the unemployment problem even among our community he challenged the younger generation to look for job outside Nagaland and also not focus only on govt job alone but also to start venturing out to private sectors, hospitality, farming, skill development etc and on making a successful career in such private sectors.
He also said that God’s blessing on our people is enormous as the Benreu Baptist Church (BBU) will be celebrating 125 years of Christianity and further encouraged the Benreu community to focus and strive to achieve greater heights not just spiritually but also educationally and socially.
Other highlights of the event included felicitating students of HSLC & HSSLC securing 80% and above with cash reward and cultural dance (helim) presented by Benreu Student’s Union Kohima.
Mention may be made that the festival was celebrated with greater spirit and gaiety as the Benreu Baptist Church (BBU) will celebrate Quasqui centenary on December 17-18, 2022, on the theme, “from blessing to glory”.
