Dimapur, August 12: NEISSR celebrated its 6th Fresher’s Day on August 9 coinciding with the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People. To honour the day seniors organized a welcoming feast with dance and songs by enacting the Morung as a way of promoting own cultures based on the theme ‘Ignite friendship through culture’.
Impressed by creativity and innovations of organizing freshers’ meet in traditional Morung style, Dr Fr CP Anto, principal of the college, encouraged the students to be happy and be proud to be indigenous. He also spoke on the five paths of leading a socially productive and meaningful life based on Dr. Martin Elias Pete Seligman’s research.
In his message to the freshers, he emphasized on the purpose of life and how NEISSR translates them into three cultures: culture of happiness, culture of peace and culture of health. He also encouraged the students to enjoy social work studies and to accomplish something more than getting into jobs through professional progressive circle (PPC) during the course of their studies.
Earlier, welcome note was given by Angam Phom, president of Student’s Council, NEISSR. (Page News Service)
