Manipuri Meitei Association, Bangalore (MMAB) commemorates 284th anniversary of Puya Mei Thaba
On Sunday, 10th Feb, 2013, members of MMAB gathered to commemorate the 284th anniversary of Puya Mei Thaba. It was more of an academic session. The objective of the gathering was to debate, discuss and educate ourselves on our origin to know what our identity is. The president and the vice president started the discussion by sharing their thoughts. It was followed by an interesting presentation on ‘Yek Salai’ and ‘Apokpa’ by the Joint Secretary. Every member present there gave their opinions and asked questions. We silently listened to the play ‘Puya Mei Thakhibagee Waree PART-I’ on youtube.com. Since it was the first time MMAB observed the commemoration, it was not attended by many.
The decisions taken were:
1. To create and maintain knowledge repositories
2. To henceforth observe the Puya Mei Thaba commemoration every year by conducting an academic and awareness session
3. To initiate on learning Meitei Mayek scripts
Hopefully we will have a grand Puya Mei Thaba observation from next year.
Thanks & Regards,
Publicity & Communication team, MMAB
