The Governor of Arunachal Pradesh Brig. (Dr.) B.D. Mishra has extended his greetings to the people of the State on the auspicious occasion of Reh. He expressed his hope that the festival will evoke blessings of the Almighty and spread the message of love, peace and fraternity, far and wide.
In his message, the Governor said that Reh, one of the most important festivals of the Idu Mishmi community reflects the vibrant and joyous traditions of our State. I would like to urge upon every member of the community and members of other tribes as well to participate actively in the event and strengthen the cohesive inter-fold bonding.
While stating that the youth from different tribes have to remain conscious of their rich culture and ethos to carry it forward, the Governor said that the diverse socio-cultural traditions of the tribal communities of Arunachal Pradesh, their rituals, their synergy with the environment, and their unique dialects give strength to the social fabric of the State. Against the backdrop of the attenuating influence of our tribal culture, it is important that our age-old traditional heritage is protected and preserved, he emphasised.
On this auspicious occasion, I offer my prayers to Divine Mother ‘Nanyi Inyitaya’ to bless each one of us with her choicest blessings, the Governor said in his message.
Chief Minister Pema Khandu has extended warm greetings to the people of Arunachal Pradesh particularly the Idu Mishmi community on the joyous occasion of Reh festival.
In his festival message, CM said that the Idu Mishmis are known for their creativity and popular for being the custodions of rich mother nature. He appreciated the Idus for conserving the nature and contributing immensely towards fighting global warming.
“Ours is a distinct state with several tribes and communities residing side by side for ages and maintaining their own unique indigenous culture and traditions. Despite our varied diversity, we as Arunachalees are united and take pride in our indigenous cultural heritage. This cultural mosaic has to be maintained, preserved and propagated at all costs while keeping intact our unity in diversity. I believe Reh would prove a major catalyst towards achieving this goal” the message added further.
