As a part of the programme, traditional dances of various communities of Manipur and Thangta tactics were presented to the audience.

Speaking on the occasion, Ngangom Uttam Singh said patriotism has a different aspect nowadays where in being patriotic means striving for a progressive society with an ultimate aim for a developed and equal society for all.

During this process one should focus on achieving emotional integrity rather than physical integrity.

To achieve emotional integrity there should be love, respect and emotional connect among the various communities of the State and eventually it will lead to the path of physical integrity, he added.

He further stated that Manipur can be called Mini India as there are more than 40 communities with different dialects and traditions of their own.

Therefore he appealed for peace and harmony in the State overcoming petty conflicts among the communities and sought collective efforts for a unified society.
