Charmed by cultural vibrancy of the State, Mizoram governor Kummanam Rajasekharan remarked that Hornbill Festival had become a unique platform to witness the cultural diversity of Nagaland for the people of other Seven Sister States and tourists from various parts of the country and the world.

Speaking on Day 6 of the ongoing 10-day Hornbill Festival at Naga Heritage Village Kisama on Thursday, Rajasekharan expressed his joy to be a part of the festival that was one of the biggest cultural extravaganzas of the Northeast.

Rajasekharan  said the mission of the festival to revive, protect, sustain and promote the rich Naga heritage and tradition was clearly being seen at the festival. 

Rajasekharan congratulated the efforts of the people of Nagaland for making the Hornbill Festival as one of the most important and talked-about festivals all over the world.

The Mizoram governor maintained that to witness the colourful display of traditional dances, sports and songs of various Naga tribes was a lifetime experience, adding that the cultural dances, indigenous sports and folk songs were the right medium to promote Nagaland to other parts of the country.

He said the warrior log drums, colourful and mystical headgears, soulful war cries and exquisite costumes were all remarkable. He remarked that, being from Kerala, it was a great to experience the cultural diversity of Nagaland.

Deputy chief minister Y Patton accompanied the Mizoram governor to the event.
