On one hand, violence is raging in Manipur, while on the other hand, the playground of Kuki-Meitei is winning the trophy together.

Violence has been going on in Manipur for 4 months. Here the Kuki and Meitei communities do not want to see each other. But on the playground the picture is opposite. India won the South Asian Football Federation (SAFF) Under-16 tournament title for the fifth time. The big thing is that Kuki and Meitei boys played together in the match.

In the final, Meitei Bharat Larenjam and Cookie Lewis Jangminlun showed excellent performance and led SAFF to victory.

Not only this, out of 23 boys of the team, 16 are from Manipur. Of these, 11 come from Meitei and 4 from Kuki community. The Indian team defeated Bangladesh 2-0 in the final played in Thimphu, the capital of Bhutan.

Bharat and Lewis appeal for peace

Lewis said that football is our passion, it unites us and teaches us to overcome differences. When we went out to play for the final, there was a little nervousness. However, when I scored the second goal for the team, the confidence increased.

Bharat scored a goal in the first 9 minutes of the match. He said that I am very happy after scoring the goal. He called it his championship goal. Also said that the players in the team are from different communities, yet we meet and play together happily with good team spirit. We appeal to maintain peace in the state.
