Speaking to the media secretary of KETTSS Manisana Ningthemcha said that the painting competition was organised to encourage the spirit of Thang-Ta, the indigenous martial arts of Manipur to the younger generation.

Stating that Thanga-Ta is being considered as a sport as well as culture, he said that the motive of the competition is to also bring Thang-ta in the arts category.   

Besides drawing is one of the key component in writing a book about the practice of Thanga-ta, he said while citing the difficulties faced by the late Sintakpurel L Heramot while documenting his book “Thanghairol” in drawing the different forms and steps of Thang-Ta.
