The 'photo gallery' organised as part of the Peace Accord's 20th anniversary was unveiled by Chief Minister Zoramthanga today.

In what was believed to be the largest assembly of people in the history of Mizoram, about 600 MNF rebels and their families were given a heroes' welcome on a rainy day in August 20 years ago.

The reconciliation of the departed compatriots were skillfully captured in the lens of renowned photo-journalist Deepak Deewan of the Northeast Sun.

Zoramthanga, the then MNF vice president,clad in army camouflage, led the homecoming from Camp Arakan.

They made several halts at villages on their way to Aizawl where they finally laid down their arms.

After unveiling the photo exhibition, the chief minister attended a 'symposium on Remna (peace) at the directorate's auditorium.

The symposium saw papers mainly dealing with peace and development presented by resource persons.
