Lotha Nagas today performed Amongi Namvu Hono Cheta Merangta (Traditional game)
Lotha Nagas today performed Amongi Namvu Hono Cheta Merangta (Traditional game) at the afternoon session of “Culturally Yours” here at Kisama. Amongi Namvu Hono Cheta Merangta is played between the young and elder males during Tokhu Emong festival. In this game, a hen is tied on a tree as target. To win the game one has to hit the target with a spear. If the elders hit the target the younger ones had to pay a fine and even if the younger ones are spot on they still had to pay fine imposed by the elders for hitting the hen. Irrespective of whether the youngsters win or lose they had to accede to the dictates of the elders. This is so, because it signifies that submissiveness, obedience, regard and respect to elders is paramount.
