Ms Ncy Doungel’s Jaila-Ai Committee member Seoboi Haokip said that Ms. Neicha Doungel popularly known as Ncy Doungel needs no introduction among the music lovers, the imprint she stamped in the hearts of many Lovers speaks it all. She was born in a small Village in Henglep Sub Division of Churachandpur district in the year 13th March 1963 to a poor parent Mr. (L) Lunkhohao Doungel & Mrs. Lamnem Doungel and began her early days of education in Mission Compound Churachandpur. “Music is a medicine to the mind”, even today her songs and music remains an oasis for the broken Hearts and the young and old lovers alike. Her early days romantic Life face a setback when the romance with her dream Lover ended which ignite her passions and love for Romantic Songs. Later she went on to compose many patriotic and country songs also. Bad times, Good times, happy times or any times, name it she has a song for every one for any occasion and for any mood
Born and brought up in a poor family, she had to face many colossal obstacles to pursue her passion. If there is one thing which keeps her away from succumbing to hardships she faced, it is her determination and her love and passion for music. She released her first Album “Vankhopi” in the year 1988 and since then there was no looking back. She went on to create records after records and today she has become the most successful Composer and Singer not only among the Kukis but also in the entire Manipur.
“At times when Kuki Songs and music were in its nascent stage and as good as non-existence, she defy all odds and thus laid the foundation stone for its emergence and progress. She became a precedence and role model for many fledgling artist and lyricist and most popular artist,” Seiboi Haokip added.
Despite all her achievements and the milestone she created, her prowess remains unsung neither at the state Level nor at the national level. It is disheartening that because of her tribal background and the language she used in her songs which is not developed; her talent will remain unacknowledged despite the fact that she is no less than any of those who have won Awards at the state and national level. Pi Ncy Doungel has contributed to the nation by preserving and glorifying tribal Music and literatures through her songs and music and thus has become a treasure not only for the Kuki community but the entire nation in general and the tribal community in particular, Seiboi Haokip further stated.
The Zaila Ai Committee strives to project her exemplary feat to the highest level so that her talent and contribution gets its fair deal. It is with these objectives in mind inter alia, that the Zaila-Ai committee will organised the ceremony on March 13 at Kholmun Playground, CCpur at 5 pm onward and will continue to endorse till she gets her deserved place. On this day hordes of dignitaries, Politicians, social activist, music enthusiast, will attend the occasion popular rock bands like David Kakap, Rock Guitarist & Party, G-Theory Band, The Mystic band and popular modern Kuki singers will perform to salute this living legendary.
