Ao Students’ Union Diphupar commemorates 25th anniversary
Dimapur, Jan. 10: Ao Kaketshir Telungjem Diphupar (Ao Students’ Union Diphupar) celebrated its silver jubilee on the theme “Unifying to liberate” on January 10 at Amphitheatre Stone Garden, NEZCC, Dimapur.
MLA Kuzholuzo (Azo) Neinu addressing the student community exhorted that jubilee is time for reconciliation in true spirit- a time to reconcile within ourselves, families, friends including enemies. He remarked that jubilee leads us either to receive ‘blessing or curse. To receive blessings he said, we must forgive and strengthen friendship in true spirit.
The legislator lamented that the word ‘reconciliation’ is misused in Nagaland. He was, however, optimistic that through mistakes, we will take corrective measures and strengthen the brotherhood of Naga society.
Asserting that Nagas are at crossroad especially with the ensuing Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) elections, Azo expressed optimism that an amicable solution will come about on the principle of forgive and forget as Christians.
“If we are committed we can achieve our goals, and we do not need great man to do great things for us,” said Azo. He also stressed on training in righteousness for the Naga society to move forward.
Conveying his contentment to witness the unity of Diphupar community, Azo maintained that Diphupar village has set an example for other localities of Dimapur town to follow suit in maintaining unity.
Professor A Lanunungsang, former Pro-Vice Chancellor of Nagaland University, addressing the student community as the theme speaker, remarked that Nagas cannot achieve their goal ‘If we do not unite and live in truth.’ He said our present society is divided and will further see division ‘if we do not unite and live in truth.’
“If we want to liberate, Nagas must come together as one and march forward for corruption free society and achieve our goals,” said Professor Lanunungsang in his concluding remarks.
