Artists are harbinger of social change, says Nara
Artists need to play a crucial role in bringing about social change in the state. Artworks whether poems, paintings, songs, etc. portray contemporary society and help in shaping it towards a better future.
This was stated by veteran politician and CPI executive, Dr Moirangthem Nara during the opening function of the ‘24th State-Level Jana Neta Hijam Irawat Seitha Eshei Changdamnaba’ held here today at the JN Manipur Dance Academy auditorium.

Dr Nara also observed that such a song competition about the life and sacrifices of Irawat has been serving as a good platform for the young ones.
The CPI executive member mentioned that renowned Manipuri singer Pushparani, Chanchan, etc. began their career from this competition in 2002.
