Your front page article dated 4th October, 2010 on the Commonwealth Opening Ceremony by Bobilli Vijay Kumar reported that the girl who led the Indian team wore a Naga dress. I request you to make a correction that it was a Mizo dress and also to tell your reporters to do their homework well in the future. Mizoram may not be rich in natural resources but we pride ourselves in being one of the most peaceful states in India along with the second highest literacy rate. We are also proud of our culture, including our traditional dress. It is quite belittling when you don’t spell our names right and attribute our traditional dress to another state on a national newspaper.
A proud Mizo girl
