Reigning Mr International 2022 Lukanand Kshetrimayum graced the grand finale of the 15th Edition of Mister International pageant held at Baguio, Cordillera Hall, Baguio Country Club, Baguio, Philippines on Friday.
Lukanand initiated a Global Awareness programme as a part of the event, and drew the attention of the gathering to the present issues confronting Manipur.
In the presence of representatives and National Directors from various Nations, with global media and spokespersons, Lukanand highlighted 'Burning Manipur' and sought attention to prioritise the subject as a central focus in order to raise awareness regarding narco-terrorism.
The matter will be extensively debated in the international media within the framework. The foundation will establish venues for the purpose of drawing attention and raising awareness on the urgent problems.
Baguio-based international fashion designer King George created a striking ensemble that conveyed the urgency of the situation.
Lukanand and designer King George used the focus of a teenager's gaze who was recently a victim of the present crisis in Manipur as a means of drawing people's attention to the issue and allowing them to learn more about it.
