Death anniversary of Rungsung Suisa on April 17

The R Suisa Trust Ukhrul is gearing to observe the 45th death anniversary of Rungsung Suisa, a prominent Naga political visionary of Ukhrul to be hosted by Somdal village on April 17. "We are going to observe in a grand manner the anniversary function in memory of late Rungsung Suisa who was an outstanding student, a seasoned politician, prophetic, and Godfearing man," said Dr Ngahorshai Luithui chairman R Suisa Trust in a news conference held at UDWJA office, Viewland on Friday.

Exhorting the life of the Naga leader as exemplary, Luithui asserted that Suisa lived his whole life contributing towards love, peace and fraternity not only in the Northeast but across India. "He developed a cordial relationship and brotherhood with the Meitei, Kuki and other Naga tribes of Manipur," related Luithui.

Suisa was loved and fondly called 'Uncle' by all communities, said Luithui adding that though Suisa is long gone, his footprints will live forever.
The Trust was instituted in 1993 to profess the legacy of the Naga leader, he said and advocated that the younger generation need to develop understanding of the leader and his philosophy and predictions many of which fulfillment are we witnessing today.
This year Somdal village, birthplace of Suisa, has offered to host the event commemorating the life of Suisa who passed away 45 years ago, said Trust secretary Wungkhayap Zimik.

We are expecting more than 1000 delegates from across the district covering 240 villages to converge at Somdal village, he exuded fervent hope.
