A choir from Shillong, Meghalaya, performed at the CSI Immanuel Church on New Year’s Day. They sang with fervor, and the packed audience sat in rapt attention. The Northeast is such a remote and neglected part of the country, and I’m always happy to meet anyone from there. Their presence among us is a tangible affirmation that they belong. Besides, there’s a personal reason too: my room mates in college were from the Northeast.
The photos below give an idea of the event. The choir was accompanied by a pastor, who delivered a fiery sermon on the theme of the long arm of God.
