Manipur is exactly like an elegant garland where one can witness a mini India, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday while addressing Manipur Sangai Festival via video message.

Modi said that the Manipur Sangai Festival helps in promoting Manipur as a world-class tourism destination. The festival is named after the state animal, Sangai, the brow-antlered deer found only in the state.

Remarking on Manipur’s abundant natural beauty, cultural richness and diversity, he said that everyone wants to visit the state at least once and drew an analogy to a beautiful garland that is made up of different gems. 

The Prime Minister underlined that India in its Amrit Kaal is moving forward with the spirit of ‘Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat’. 

The Sangai Festival also celebrates the biodiversity of India'', the Prime Minister said. 

He further added that it also celebrates India's cultural and spiritual ties with nature. 

Prime Minister also informed that the festival inspires indispensable social sensitivity towards a sustainable lifestyle. 

“When we make nature, animals and plants a part of our festivals and celebrations, then co-existence becomes a natural part of our life," he said.

Modi pointed out that different moods and colours of the festival could be seen at around 14 locations from the Nagaland border to the Myanmar border. 

He lauded the commendable initiative and said, “When we connect such events with more and more people, only then its full potential comes to the fore.”
