Karbi festival going on

With much fanfare and cultural extravaganza, the colourful Karbi Youth festival is going on atop the Karbi hills. The colourful cultural event of the Karbi youths was inaugurated by Assam Governor Lt general (retd) Ajoy Singh on Saturday. The event marked its beginning with a glowing tribute to the Karbi culture legend Rangsina Sarpo. In his address, the Governor said he was really mesmerized by the Karbi songs and dance adding that has turned 75 but never did he enjoy these cultural festival. In his address, veteran Karbi political leader Dr Jayanta Rongpi said only autonomous state could restore permanent peace and prosperity in the hills district.

Saw Assam Times for the first time today and found this piece of news on Karbi youth Festival. The effort to host a people's paper is really praiseworthy. I am definitely one of your many well-wishers and would be glad to see this effort grow everyday. Since you have given a reader this unique opportunity to also comment on the news items appearing here, I would only suggest to kindly get the names (particularly Karbi and other tribal names) correctly. For example, the name of Rangsina Sarpo is written in this news item as Sargot..which is wrong and I hope you wouldn't want to go on unmindful of such mistakes! Please kindly ask your reporters to be cautious on such sensitive matters. With best wishes.....DST
