Choral groups performing on January 14, evening at the Maati Ke Rang 2015 festival at Dimapur. The Nagaland Singing Ambassadors gave a performance enough to induce goosebumps in the audience who came in vast numbers to hear the choirs perform, news agency The Imphal Times reported.


Their rendition of the ‘Circle of Life’ induced the right tones of freedom, joy and warmth towards nature immediately. The Bel Canto choir from Mizoram that came next was just as spectacular with their take on ‘You raise me up’ and ‘One Love’ bringing the audience the feeling of warmth and cheer respectively.
The two choirs sang together (seen in the picture attached) at the end presenting the famous ‘Hallelujah’ in reverberating tones.

Food is a core component of culture which satisfies the soul in an equal measure. At Maati Ke Rang, food has been made a major part of the cultural festival with a fishery pond at the NEZCC complex in Dimapur converted into a food court.
Woven in bamboo, the food court has a range of flavours from India on offer — Kachoris dipped in succulent chutneys from Rajasthan, Makki ki Roti, Sarso ka saag from Punjab, Chilli Chicken and Egg rolls Kolkata style, sticky rice and hot beans out of a Naga kitchen. For those who care to snack, there are burgers and mirchi pakoras. The festival will continue till January 17.
As part of the Maati Ke Rang 2015 Children’s Activities, a ‘painting competition’ was arranged today at 11 a.m. Children’s imaginations can do wonders for the world and here was an example of it being displayed — the theme of the drawing competition today was: My region, My tradition, the Nagaland Post reported.
The competition saw participation of 160 children in different categories of drawing and colouring.
Children in dozens were seen playing around at the bouncies, trampolins, All Terrain Bike rides, rock climbing and sliders in a mini mela meant to entertain the children. They were also seen appreciating the murals at the Buddhist exhibition. According to Madhubani artist, Sunita Jha, from Bihar, “Young people in Nagaland have the ability to appreciate art—all they need is some more exposure and training in art forms to be able to become splendid artists themselves.”
