Southern Angami & Maram youngsters reaffirm age-old brotherhood
Kohima, December 5: The Southern Angami Youth Organization (SAYO), Kohima, Nagaland and Northern Maram Students and Youth Organisation (NMSYO), Senapati, Manipur today reiterated their relationship through a ‘brotherhood affirmation’ programme.
The cordial programme was held at Angami Youth Organisation (AYO) monolith above Naga Heritage Village in Kisama with SAYO hosting the Maram brothers today.
On November 24, 2021 their parent bodies – Southern Angami Public Organization (SAPO) Kohima, Nagaland and Maram Khullen, Senapati, Manipur had met after 95 years and reaffirmed their age-old brotherhood accord at Zhodi ground in Jakhama village, Kohima.
Speaking on the occasion held after a year, SAYO president Metekhrielie Mejura said the objective of the affirmation programme is to get to know each other better and also have deeper understanding individually and as youngsters of the two communities.
He said it would also strengthen the relationship and uphold their bondage of friendship and brotherhood now and in all coming times for generations.
“Our wish and prayer is that we shall be there for each other in any situations and matters which can be managed humanly and not only in boundary issues,” he said.
NMSYO president, P Karaiba Francis termed the day as ‘historic’ which the Maram youngsters will never forget.
He sought God’s blessing upon the Maram and Southern Angami people so as to continue to love and support each other.
He asserted they would stand strong to the brotherhood relation and that anything good or bad would not separate them but that they work together as brothers.
“Let us be more loving and keep in regular touch,” he appealed while thanking their elders for keeping the brotherhood alive.
Chaired by SAYO member Zeneikho Pfükha the brotherhood affirmation programme started with prayer by SAYO vice president (admin) Thepfukho-o Tepa while SAYO vice president (general) Kechangulie Dul tendered vote of thanks.
