Kohima, June 2: Pro Vice Chancellor of Nagaland University, Kohima Campus, Meriema, Prof Glen Thong encouraged students to be assiduous to achieve success in the current highly competitive world.
Speaking at the 19th Parting Social of Nagaland University Students Union (NUSU) Kohima Campus – Meriema on the theme “Through adversity to the stars” held at RCEMPA Jotsoma today.
Everyone possess grit and enterprise, unfortunately, very few are willing to use these gifts, he said, adding that nothing should deter any of them from climbing to the top as success comes to those who are diligent.
“Going through tough times is not easy, but through the blood, sweat, and tears, you will surely rise higher than where you started. To achieve your goal, you have to sacrifice time and energy. If you can bear the pain, rest assured of a good life ahead,” he said.
He also advised them to successfully negotiate through life, besides their degrees they have to pick up other skills because the government sector is almost saturated and thousands compete for a few vacancies.
Also saying that numerous government schemes exist to help the educated youth start their own business, he however lamented that the corrupt have pocketed everything for their kith and kin.
In this, he encouraged them to fight for what is theirs.
“Some of you will have to fight the corrupt system to safeguard your future, by getting rid of nepotism and manipulation. To be effective, you have to unite with other like-minded people and organisations,” he said.
Wishing the outgoing seniors the very best, he said success in life will always remain humankind’s most important goal, but for which you have to really struggle.
“The easier part of your life was from kindergarten through University and you thought it was tough! Tough starts now, after your final semester examinations. You have to work – hard, unceasingly, and persistently,” the pro vice chancellor said.
NUSU Kohima Campus president Chingsau delivered the presidential address while speech on behalf of outgoing students was shared by NUSU KC former information & publicity secretary Shahchoi B. Buchem.
