AMSU observes 26th Manipuri Language Day

IMPHAL, Aug 20: The 26th Manipuri Language Day was also observed by All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) at its headquarter located inside DM College campus today.
The observance function was graced by Professor Sanatombi, former Dean, School of Humanity, Manipur University as chief guest; AMSU president Manjit Sarangthem as president and former AMSU president Assistant Professor L Gojendro as guest of honour.
Addressing the gathering, Professor Sanatombi recalled the movement launched for inclusion of Manipuri language in the Eight Schedule of Indian Constitution.
She asserted that as a result of the movement, MCS and MPS aspirants now have the option to sit for the examination conducted by Manipur Public Service Commission (MPSC) in Manipuri language.
She said that Manipuri language is yet to be included on the Indian currency which is unfortunate for the people of the State.
Emphasising on the role of language in human life, the professor called upon the people to conserve the rich art and culture of the State.
She added that every people of the State should contribute towards promoting Manipuri language across the world.
AMSU advisor Th Suresh who attended the function observed that it is high time to include the topic on the need for promoting Manipuri language in school curriculum.
He said that student organisations could take the responsibility to ascertain whether the topic is properly taught to students in the schools.
He also said that the State Government ought to exert pressure on the Central Government to feature Manipuri language on the Indian currency.
He appealed to the people to work together to promote Manipuri language across the world.
