Kohima, September 27: Chief Minister Neiphiu Rio handed out Light Emitting Diode-Led Laser Hybrid Projectors to TaFMA empanelled music institutes, TaFMA District Partners and selected community-based NGOs, which was donated by CASIO India as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility under their programme “Gyan Ki Roshni or Light of Knowledge,” at the State Banquet Hall on September 27.

“I hope the recipients of the projector will make good use of it by enlightening the youth in a way to make them professionals and continue to promote and empower the youth at the grassroot level,” stated the Chief Minister while handing it out the projectors.
He also expressed his appreciation to TaFMA for their initiative and relentless pursuit to propagate music even in the time of the pandemic. TaFMA is also responsible for consistently building networks and creating partnerships across the country and the world, added.
Reminding to the gathering that the Music Task Force (MTF) which his government established after it came to power in 2003, Rio said that the MTF, now rechristened as TaFMA in 2019 is making a lot of progress as far as music and art is concerned.
He also stressed on the need for artists to take music seriously since the State Government has declared music as an industry.
“Music has huge business but one has to accept that the casual way of learning and singing will not suffice,” he said. While there are so many potentials and opportunities in the industry, one has to work very hard as the competition is fierce in the music industry, he added.
Rio also informed that taking in consideration of the improvement in the State regarding the covid situation, Nagaland will host the Hornbill Festival this year.
A total of 100 projectors was donated by CASIO India to the Government of Nagaland, out of which 50 projectors were given away to TaFMA empanelled institutes, TaFMA District Partner and community-based NGOs.

Director of TaFMA, Hovithal N. Sothu, informed that out of the 50 projectors that was handed over on Monday, 32 were given to the music institutes based across Nagaland, another 12 to the district partners and 6 to community-based NGOs. He further informed that the recipient for the remaining projectors will be decided as per the rules laid down by the Casio India for distribution. (Page News Service)
