Guru Nanak Jayanti, Seng Kut Snem observed

By Staff Correspondent

SHILLONG, Nov 23 - The Seng Kut Snem, an annual year-ending festival of the believers of the indigenous Khasi faith and Guru Nanak Jayanti were celebrated here today.

In the morning, a procession was taken out here by followers of the indigenous way of life, also known as Niam Trai Niam Tre through the city to Weiking Field at Jaiaw.

Men, women and children dressed in their traditional outfits walked through the city along with tableaux depicting the cultural aspects of the indigenous faith.

On Thursday, the Sikhs took out a colourful procession through the city. They offered prayers and the faithful were served food at the Langar or community kitchen in the Gurudwars on the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti. It is celebrated to observe the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism.

Seng Kut Snem is an annual festival celebrated to observe the Seng Khasi movement. It began due to the Britishers� oppression on the indigenous people and their way of life.

To fight this oppression sixteen men formed an organisation called the Khasi Young Men�s Association on November 23, 1899, to preserve and safeguard the indigenous Niam Trai Niam Tre faith.

A year later, the Khasi Young Men�s Association celebrated its first anniversary and called it Seng Kut Snem and the occasion is celebrated every year since then to commemorate that movement.

Meghalaya Governor Tathagata Roy greeted the people celebrating these individual occasions. Roy said that Guru Nanak�s teachings on �fraternity and universality be upheld among all sections of our society.�

Roy further greeted the Seng Khasis and hoped that they would �continue their movement to protect the distinct identity of the Khasi race.� Chief Minister Conrad Sangma said everyone should �rededicate their efforts and protect and preserve the identity of the Khasi belief.�
