Dimapur, January 4: Benpuluin Semchir Telongjem (BST) celebrated its Silver Jubilee (1996-2021) at Kumlong community ground, Mokokchung which was attended by a host of guests from the neighbourhood and from other places.
The Silver Jubilee programme was a yearlong celebration where the BST undertook different activities like health camps and it culminated at a grand programme on December 28, 2021 and the 22nd edition of the Benpuluin Memorial Volleyball Trophy.
The BST is a union formed by the descendents of Late Benpuluin Jamir, one of the first settlers of the present day Kumlong ward in Mokokchung town.
The main speaker at the programme, the SDO (C) of Mokokchung, Sentilong Ozukum , while speaking on the theme of the celebration ‘rejuvenation’, said that rededication is very important for the betterment of oneself, the family and the society. He said that celebrating twenty-five years of existence is not a small feat and therefore asserted that the theme is very appropriate for everyone to introspect and look forward with renewed strength.
While speaking about the present society, Ozukum lamented that there is a lot of negativism among the people which is hampering the progress of the society. In this regard, he said that the society exists because of individuals “you and I” and therefore, it should be the duty of everyone to contribute positively for our society to move forward.
Furthermore, while wishing the best towards the twenty-five years, Ozukum urged Benpuluin Semchir Telongjem to passionately invoke God’s blessing so that many more grandchildren who would become responsible citizens and leaders who would fear the Lord and serve the people with truth and honesty.
