DIPHU, Feb 12: “We have learnt that preparing for the biggest and oldest youth festival (45th Karbi Youth Festival) in the Northeast region to be celebrated from February 14-19, 2019 at Taralangso, Diphu, Karbi Anglong is in war footing. We prayed to the Almighty God and extend our best wishes to the organizers, well-wishers, members of the sub-committees, participants and people of Karbi Anglong for the great annual event,” stated Mir-ang Shir-ang, vice chairman of PDCK in a press communiqué on Tuesday.
In order to safeguard a particular tribe, there should be well protected boundary beside which protection and promotion of one’s culture and tradition is very much significant.
Culture is the root of one’s tribe. If we said that Karbi is a part of the big mongoloid race but if we forget our culture and tradition it is of no value. Our culture is our image and should promote it so that others can see the beauty and uniqueness of Karbi’s culture, said in the statement.
He also said that many of the small indigenous tribes in the world were not seen no more. Their culture and tradition were swallowing up by the dominant and advance class of society. We the hill tribes of Northeast India are no exemption and we will be facing the same fate if our unique culture and tradition were not well protected. We call upon the Karbi people to join hands with the great event and appeal each and everyone to have a heart to protection one’s culture and should not sway away by the culture and tradition which is not ours.
