Imphal, Nov.30 (ANI): A five-day-long National Integration Camp began here on Tuesday with 150 people participating from Nagaland, Tripura, Bihar and Manipur.
The camp is organised by a social body Nehru Yuva Kendra.
Participants appreciated the mingling of different cultures.
"This is the right time that some states, they interchange their cultures, costumes and then they come to know each other. Until and unless we share our views and come forward to know each other, then it will be very hard for us to integrate," said Dameichung, a participant from Manipur's Churachandpur District.
"It is like different-different flowers in the same garden. Like that we are also united through the cultural programme. I wish we can come closer and closer and lastly we can have unity and peaceful co-existence, not only in India but in the whole world," said Paridesh, a participant from Tripura.
S. Bobby Devi, a participant from Manipur's Bishenpur District believed that such camps are very informative as they get to learn many new things.
"We have gained knowledge, which we do not get through education. Only through such event on integration gives a practical insight of the knowledge," said Devi.
Cultural and interactive programmes are major events that would take place during the five-day camp. (ANI)
