Imphal, October 16 2023: As part of Swachhata Hi Seva 2023', 205 people including personnel of Assam Rifles, NCC cadets, students of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya, St Joseph School, Baptist Higher Secondary School, Mount Gibeon School and ASUFII Christian Institute, ex-servicemen, local youth and villagers conducted cleanliness drive at 'Chitebu Kaji' (Wild Pear Tree) located at Shajouba village, Senapati district, which is of historical importance to the 'Makhrai Hru' (Makhel race).

In a release, PIB Defence conveyed that 'Chitebu Kaji' is believed to have grown from the walking stick of 'Dzuliamosuro', the great ancestress of 'Makhrai Hru'.

Legend says that Dzuliamosuro, as a mother was always concerned about her youngest son Alechamaiwo who was attaining marriageable age.

By divine intervention, she had a dream, where she was shown a specific place where she would meet a young girl by the name Charani who would be her daughter-in-law.

She ventured out from her home walking towards the specified spot taking a walking stick made from a branch of wild pear tree.

Dzuliamosuro met Charani at the place shown in her dream.

After meeting Charani she planted her walking stick there and left the place.

This walking stick eventually grew to be what we now call as Chitebu Kaji', it added.

The release continued that this tree is particularly significant because it symbolises the oath of allegiance and brotherhood among the Makhrai Hru.
