Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurates annual Hornbill Festival in Nagaland's capital city Kohima
Union Home Ministeri Rajnath Singh inaugurated the hugely popular Hornbill Festival 2018 in Kohima on December 2 which is also the Formation Day of Nagaland, stated an official release.

Calling it a spectacular event showcasing the rich ancient culture and  marked by diversity and civilizational unity of the people., he stated "How each tribe is proudly unique, their cultural richness and yet there is an overwhelming sense of unity among all.  This spectacular demonstration of unity in diversity in what India is all about. At the Hornbill Festival I get a glimpse of the Indian spirit of happy peaceful coexistence of the multiplicities."

He added that the festival  had enhanced the popular participation  which would help the countrymen to understand the cultural richness of the Nagas consisting of folk songs, tales  and dances  that were an essential part of traditional Naga culture.

According to him the festival offers unique opportunity not only to the different tribes of the State to interact with each other and exhibit their cultural heritage but also with those from the neighbouring and other States in the true spirit of "Ek Bharat, Shrestha Bharat". 

"Old templates of geopolitics are crumbling to the emerging new and somewhat uncertain templates of geo-economics, largely driven by modern technologies.  Even the old political ideas and beliefs are being given new meaning by these forces of change," he said further.

He urged for creating conditions so that the creative and entrepreneurial potential of the Naga youth were unleashed to the optimum.
