Chairman of Nagaland Empowerment of People through Energy Development (NEPeD), Kevechütso Doulo said history says innovators, achievers and politicians have been crazy people as they became successful in their own field only after being failures yet pursued their crazy dreams unless they became successful.
“One has to be crazy to be successful,” he said while also calling upon the youngsters to venture out knowing their talent.
Expressing happiness to witness the young crazy Naga minds, who have brought up ideas and concept in different areas during tech-fest, he called upon them to have the pride for being able to do so, but they should not be egoistic.
He also expressed hope that with such upcoming Naga talents, the Department of Technical Education will reform Nagaland as the tech-fest grows from strength to strength in the coming years.
Joint Director & In-Charge Director of Higher Education, Menuokholie Kire lauded the department for creating a platform for the students inspite of the basic facilities which the state has.
Lauding the efforts of the participants, Kire expressed shocked to see the entire event. “It shows that the students are giving and trying their best,” he said.
Calling upon the students to be sincere and passionate in whatever they do, he said, there is no shortcut to success, but to dream big and work hard to achieve it.
Also maintaining that the present world is occupied with artificial intelligence and everyone is part of it, he said the younger generations have to take up the right institute in order to cope up with the world.
He also encouraged them saying that the society needs their services. In this, he said they should not think that technology, politicians or missionaries will change the society but it the talent and innovative ideas of the younger generation which can bring change.
