Dimapur, November 30: The reigning Miss Nagaland, Imlibenla Jamir recently visited Mothers’ Hope, Dimapur along with Members of Beauty and Aesthetics Society of Nagaland (BASN) as part of the BASN goodwill mission which is held every now and then.
It was the morning of November 23 that the beauty queen arrived at the home with much excitement, accompanied by BASN members - former Miss Nagaland Sentila Pongen, the first Miss Dimapur Nangshimenla Therie, Rongsenyangla Longchar Director Juvalia & You.
She was indisputably the centre of attraction even as the adorable munchkins eyed her with curiosity as she passed by every crib. She picked them, one after the other, and was, each time, received warmly by a sweet smile even as Imlibenla showed immense affection for each one of them.
So much so, when the time for goodbye came, some of the babies were reluctant to let her leave. A tear-jerking sight to see them part even as the beauty queen herself expressed, “…they are so adorable I don’t want to leave them.”
Exchanging a few words, Imlibenla expressed her gratitude to the Director of Mother’s Hope, Moamenla for giving her the opportunity to capture the innocence of the babies and hoped that God will continue to support and bless the home. Nangshimenla Therie on behalf of the BASN thanked Moamenla Jamir for giving them the opportunity to visit the Home while also appreciating her effort in providing a home for the babies and the mothers. BASN also donated a small token to Mothers Hope.
It may be noted that Mother’s Hope was established in 2001 and today, it cares for pregnant girls undergoing crisis pregnancies and home to young girls, who are usually victims of sexual abuse. They provide and promote loving, nurturing care for newborn and infants needing permanent home. Currently, the mission is looking after nine babies.
A day before, Imlibenla along with some of her friends had also visited the Ebenezer Orphanage Home in Dimapur, where she gave a gift to each child and encouraged them to fear God and study hard. During the visit Imlibenla was truly blessed by the children’s compassion towards her as the cuddle-bugs laid their tiny hands on the reigning queen and prayed for her wellbeing. “I was so touched when they prayed for me. I feel humbled by today’s experience and I’m thankful that I was able to do this. And it is my prayer that God would continue to bless these children,” Imlibenla said.
Narrating the experience, Imlibenla said she always wanted to do charity works and have always admired people who are involved in doing such ventures. “Today God has let it happen and I feel blessed and happy.” To this, she also added, “… meeting the children was an enlightening experience for me. So many times we complain about our lives but today’s experience made me realize how fortunate we are and we ought to thank God for all that he has given us.” It may be mentioned here that Akum Amri is the founder and director of Ebenezer Orphanage Home. The home was established in 2005 with just three orphans but now it has 22 children.
Further, the reigning Miss Nagaland and the BASN, along with the newly inducted members gave a courtesy visit to the Chief Secretary of Nagaland and his wife, Alemtemshi Jamir and Banuo Z. Jamir at their residence on the evening of November 24, 2013. The couple had been greatly instrumental in the establishment of the Beauty & Aesthetics Society of Nagaland apart from helping the society initiate the district level beauty pageants when it first began. Sharing a few thoughts during the visit, Reigning Miss Nagaland, Imlibenla Jamir expressed happiness to meet the chief secretary and the additional chief secretary while also putting across that she has been privileged to meet different people from all walks of life as Miss Nagaland.
