IMPHAL, April 13 � Miguel Angel Ramirez Ramos, Ambassador of Cuba in India who was on a three-day visit to Manipur on Tuesday said that he will be the Ambassador of Shumang Leela, a courtyard play in the State, around the world.
�I will be the Ambassador of Shumang Leela around the world�, the visiting Ambassador Ramos said while speaking at a pre-play gathering at Iboyaima Shumang Leela Shanglen here.
Stating that Cuba has a better relationship with India and Manipur in particular, the Ambassador said many Manipur sports persons (mostly boxers) would be trained in Cuba.
Former Manipur Arts and Culture Minister Dr Moirangthem Nara also urged the visiting Cuban Ambassador to make use of his visit and become the Ambassador of Manipur culture around the globe.
Soon after arrival here on Monday, the Ambassador delivered a talk on �Achievement of Cuban Revolution� in Manipur University campus where he said though Cuba won less than the expected number of Olympic medals, its per capita medal-population ratio is the highest in the world.
Cubans have a genuine love for their country and the sense of nationalism among the people is very high, he said adding that was why Cuba is developing despite the 50 years of economic blockade imposed by the US.
He further admitted that human resource development of his country is very high as the people have the right to recall and re-evaluate their representatives every six months because there is a constitutional rule governing the obligation of the representatives of the people to show their achievements after every six months.
