Kongthong woman creates ‘name-tune’ for President at Mawphlang

Shillong, Jan 16: Kongthong woman Shidiap Khongsit composed a tune for the President of India Droupadi Murmu at Mawphlang, on Tuesday.


Kongthong is known for the tradition of calling the residents by short tunes.

She had earlier composed a tune for Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he visited Mawphlang.

A tune is a name for the individual, who responds to the song (tune) when it is sung.

Rothell Khongsit, who is popularising Kongthong, explained to the President about the tradition. A team comprising women from the villageĀ  displayed it.

The tune is wrongly attributed as whistling thereby Kongthong erroneously getting the tag of whistling village.
