The title is attractive but the content is all wrong. The danger is that it can mislead outsiders and potential tourist with the wrong information. Please do proper research and rectify your errors as soon as possible.

whoever posted this - if you have any shred of decency, please remove the post. the information is totally WRONG - big time. did you even do any research? The picture is SO random. FYI Manipur doesn't have a beach. And those instruments aren't even remotely Manipuri. And yeah, those people are DEFINITELY not Indian - forget about Manipuri.
