Nagaland’s Tourism and Higher Education Minister Temjen Imna Along is the internet’s favorite politician. Popular for his entertaining and witty posts on social media, he is also adept at communicating ideas and promoting his native state. He recently shared a picture of a gift he sent to Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone when he met her parents, Prakash Padukone and Ujjala Padukone.
Mr. Imna Along met badminton legend Prakash Padukone and his wife Ujjala Padukone. Giving a locally sourced organic pumpkin, the Minister humorously linked the gesture to Deepika’s role as Mastani in the film ‘Bajirao Mastani’, recognizing the special vegetables of Nagaland.
Presenting a locally sourced organic pumpkin, the minister jokingly linked the gesture with Deepika Padukone’s portrayal of Mastani in the superhit film ‘Bajirao Mastani’, implying recognition of Nagaland’s signature crops. He also shared a picture and wrote, “Deepika Padukone ke liye organic taufa (an organic gift for Deepika Padukone) Just presented an organic delight to Deepika’s parents – kyuki kahin ka kahin Mastani bhi maan jati Nagaland ki shaandar sabiziyon ki khasiyat ko (Just handed over an organic delight to Deepika’s parents because Mastani also wanted to go for Nagaland’s wonderful vegetables)“

Since it was shared, the post has garnered over 51,000 views and two thousand likes.
A few months ago, he had shared a video of a young boy protecting his shop amid a heavy storm and the heartbreaking clip struck a chord with netizens.
Mr Along took to X to share the video. In the video, the boy is seen helping his mother in the middle of a strong storm. At first he holds on to the tarpaulin while his mother ties a rope to the goods kept in the shop. Later in the video, he runs to pick up a chair that fell due to the strong wind. Sir. Along was amazed that the boy was too young to understand that level of responsibility.
“Age is not a factor in understanding responsibility, circumstances only teach it!” reads the caption of the 31-second video.
