Imphal, Sep 27 : The National Integration Tour (NIT) for School Children of Chakpikarong High School, Chandel district returned back on 26 Sep 2013 after an exhilarating 12 days visit to the Pink City of Jaipur. The tour which was organised by 32 Assam Rifles under aegis of 28 Sector Assam Rifles and IGAR(S) consisted of twenty students and two teachers with personnel of Assam Rifles accompanying them. They had left Manipur on 14th Sep 2013 and thereafter reached Delhi by train where they visited the important landmarks before moving to Jaipur in the newly introduced double-decker train.
The children had a very enriching and memorable experience at Jaipur as they visited historical monuments and other key attractions of the Pink City. In particular, they visited Amer Fort, Nahargarh Fort, Jaipur Fort, Hawa Mahal, City Palace and Jantar Mantar – many of them being well preserved and internationally recognised tourist attractions. The children also visited a Water Park which was perhaps the most fun filled part of the tour. The children had a bite at Mc Donalds and also saw the latest Bollywood movie ‘Phata Poster Nikla Hero’ at the much acclaimed Rajmandir theatre. Apart from the sight-seeing, the NIT met the Honourable Governor of Rajasthan, Smt Margaret Alva at the Raj Bhawan.
The NIT was flagged in at Kakching by Brig RN Mathur, Commander 28 Sector Assam Rifles. In a function marking the culmination of the tour, the children narrated their account of the visit in the presence of their parents who too were overwhelmed. The NIT was organised to promote national integration, communal harmony and showcase the rich and diverse heritage of India to the children hailing from a remote area of Manipur.
