Kohima, Oct 20 (ANI): Nagaland has something new with the inauguration of a big outlet to sell musical instrument, Unitex Inc, in Kohima.
First of its kind in the North East, the music outlet has translated the vision of many musicians and artists into reality. The showroom is a multi brand outlet, with a unique demo-room facility, helping the musicians to synchronize the instrument before they buy it.
The significance of the showroom can be understood from the fact that the Nagaland Chief Minister, Nephie Rio himself inaugurated it.
“This has come like a blessing for us, especially for the musicians and all the young people, who are very talented and looking for a platform. This comes like a gift to us. I believe this is good,” said Imiti, a music lover from Nagaland.
The musical instrument shop is an attempt to change the image of the state. “Music is definitely going to bring peace into the state. Look around you, if this place had been insurgency-hit, would I be doing business to this extent; would I be investing so much? I would like to clear the misconception that this is not a safe place, said Neingulie Nakhro, Managing Director of Unitex, Nagaland.
It is the urge for establishing permanent peace in the state that the younger generation is using music as a tool to spread the message of harmony and normalcy. And the concert for peace held against the backdrop of recent factional violence in the state’’s commercial capital, Dimapur, reflects this fact.
Unitex Inc is the reflection of the state’’s love for music and the growing craze among the youngsters of Nagaland to choose music as a profession ever since the state has given music the status of industry.
Moreover, the State Government has also set up a Music Task Force to assist talented musicians and give them training and exposure. Music Task Force is a special cell amalgamated with the Youth Resources Department of the government.
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life, said Berthold Auerbach. And the people of Nagaland are hoping that music would succeed to bring the much sought about peace in the state. (ANI)
