A Video Interview, with Ed Armstrong joining in from USA
Language: Interview in English
Ed Armstrong, Partner at Huntre!Adventures, a tour company offering package to the Birthplace of Polo in Manipur. I was excited to read about his association with Polo and Manipur and invited him to share about his experience and work.
He shared very interesting details based on his experience on his travels and interaction with people in Manipur. Happy to hear him share that “The Manipuri Polo team is by far one of the best team in the world.”
He spoke about Polo and the level of Manipuri players for both the men and women teams comparing with the USPA team. He spoke about the charm and tourism aspects of Manipur identifying Ema Keithel as the high point and internet as an improvement. Asking him “What does tourist in Manipur love about Ema Keithel ?” He shared that the friendly people in Ema Keithel want to sell things but they are not aggressive like they are at New Delhi. Ema Keithel is a high spot for tourism and Ed Armstrong indicated that he hopes that Ema Keithel comes up and going, after the effects of the recent earthquake in Manipur. He added that “simple things like internet could be improved in Manipur”.
He shared details about the tours planned to Manipur as part of the offerings from Hun-Tre Adventures.
Born and raised in the violence-torn landscape of Manipur, I have a vision to promote and spread inspiring, empowering, educative & entertaining stories. I believe that we can create contents bringing the positive side of Manipur. I believe we can do this together by finding the voices, voices which needs to be heard and shared, voices of our own people, people of Manipur and well-wishers of Manipur. I believe that these voices will bring a change and connect all of us.
