Imphal: An Ukhrul-based talent show “Ringui’s Got Talent (RGT), season 6” was officially launched by Miss Spring 2019, Chanchui Khayi, on Tuesday at Classic Grande Hotel in Imphal.
The talent show which aims to cater to the diverse and untapped talents of the youth from Ukhrul district will create a platform to build their career.
Speaking to media person, RGT convenor, AC Raising, informed that besides grooming the young talents, the event plays an important role in peace-making.
Through talents, the event also aims to bring peace, harmony and cordial neighbourhood among the villages in the district affected by the dispute of land and boundaries, he said.
“I think the platform is a great way for any individual to know that people are out there making their dreams valid and giving them this opportunity to showcase their talents is also one way of believing themselves so that they can reach higher goals in life,” added Miss Spring 2019.
Organised by Dewdrops, this talent hunt show, as claimed by organisers, is one of the oldest talents’ shows in the state.
The event will feature varied untapped talents ranging from singers, dancers, comedians among others from the hill district.
