Temjen Imna urge students to be global citizens

Dimapur, June 24: Minister of Higher & Technical Education, Temjen Imna Along Longkumer on Monday stated that the people of Nagaland are too comfortable in their own narrow comfort zones and there is a need for them to explore the world and be something great outside the State too.
Speaking at the fresher’s social-cum-felicitation programme here at Pranab Vidyapith Higher Secondary School, Dimapur, the minister said it is time for the students and people of the State to change their perspective and be global citizens and be relevant everywhere, not just in Dimapur, Mokokchung, or Kiphire.
He said studying in a school like Pranab Vidyapith, where there are students from all cultures and communities, can teach a lot about cross-culture. He asked the students to learn to live in harmony together and remember that only those who have been able to become a big politician or someone mighty are not the definition of success, but success can be even something like being a good person or someone who can be of use to others.
The minister said despite differences, the people of the country has a common goal to achieve towards the progress of the nation and when he sees the young people of varied backgrounds together, he sees the beauty of the Indian culture, heritage, and traditions.
Previously, MLA and Advisor (Power) Tovihoto Ayemi mentioned that PVHSS has been a leading school in Nagaland and students from the school are always in the topper lists every year. He said the school is doing exceptionally well consistently and asked the students to take the trend forward.
He reminded the students that success is a journey and not a destination and they should be feeling privileged to be a part of the school.
This year, a total of 10 students had made it to the toppers list of HSLC and HSSLC (Science and Commerce) from the school and they were felicitated during the programme. (Page News Service)
