CDKK felicitates teachers


Dimapur, September 11: In celebration of the accomplishments and contributions of the teachers, who are still pursuing the profession, who have retired, and who have died over the years, the Chatteswary Durgabari Kala Kendra on Sunday organised a “Teachers’ Day” and felicitated the teachers who made Chatteswary Colony their home.
The President of Dimapur Bengali Samaj, KK Paul, who was the chief guest of the programme held here at Chatteswary Durgabari, Dimapur, on the occasion, talked about the changing teacher-student relationship over the years and the contributions of the Bengali community in the fields of education, businesses, and services in Nagaland.
He asked the people of the community to help others, stressed on the importance of education, love the state and the people and live in harmony with all. He assured that the Bengali Samaj would also help the children who might need financial assistance to continue their education using the resources within its capacity.
Earlier, Secretary of Chatteswary Durgabari Biplab Paul in his introductory speech had called teachers the building blocks of the society and how the Kala Kendra was established in 2015 in an attempt to preserve the culture of the Bengali community through the promotion of cultural and traditional arts and shared the hard times the institute had to face during the pandemic when it didn’t have the money to pay to the teachers and the administration had contemplated to shut it down.
The teachers who were felicitated on the occasion also shared their thoughts and expressed gratitude towards the Kendra for honouring them.
