VWF felicitates HSLC, HSSLC toppers


Dimapur, June 9: Vivekananda Welfare Foundation today felicitated the toppers of HSLC and HSSLC examinations 2019 here at the premises of St. Mary Higher Secondary School, Dimapur in the presence of Swapneel Paul, IAS, as the chief guest and Dr. Y. Hesheto Chishi, president of Nagaland NGOs Forum as the guest of honour.
Speaking on the occasion, Swapneel shared some tips with the students about how they should go ahead with their studies and other aspirations.
He said that it is important that they should pursue their own interests and the trend that if a student scores good marks in the examination he/she should pursue science, and if not, there are commerce and arts, makes no justification.
He asked them to be strict about their schedules and be well prepared before they can sit for the examination. While he said that it is a wrong thing to study only what they think is important as the questions has already been asked in previous examinations, he also said that they nevertheless need to make sure they know what not to study as in the present context, information is vast but the mind has limitations.
Advising them to be calm when they fail and instead communicate with others, he asked them to avoid those who try to discourage them and fight till the end and find happiness, terming happiness the ultimate meaning of life.
Dr. Hesheto in his speech applauded the contribution of VWF as well as the foundation’s commitment to uphold the philosophy of Swami Vivekananda’s universal brotherhood.
He asked the students to remember that success is not a destination but a journey and they must change and learn.
Legal advisor of VWF Y.P. Gupta, who also spoke on the occasion, said that it takes a whole family to educate a child. Special speaker Prof. K P Avikasit said that not everyone can be CEOs and there is a need for educations that aims at making good citizens and commoners.
Previously, Reeme Deb, project coordinator of “Pratibha”, an educational initiative under VWF in which the underprivileged students are given free classes by volunteers three days in a week, made the attendants aware of the project and invited volunteers to be a part of it.
