Dimapur, November 5: The 25th presentation ceremony of Mayangnokcha Awards for Academic Excellence was held at Mayangnokcha Higher Secondary School, Mokokchung on November 2.
Speaking on the occasion as the special guest, Dr SC Jamir said it is a privilege for all of us to be living in the 21st century. “Therefore to actively participate in this fast changing world, we need to change our mindset and think outside the box,” he said.
Stating that youth today are the leaders of tomorrow, Jamir said in today’s highly competitive world there is hardly any room for mediocre, one has to be the best to achieve goal in life.
Jamir maintained that the greatest danger of Naga society is that Nagas do not know where we are today and have lost directions to move ahead. He said people are blinded by creed and have made corruption a part of our culture. Therefore, to bring about a change in our society, Jamir asked the youth to be proactive and move on by exhibiting integrity in life.
