Though stating that the Nagas are ‘very’ gifted in music and sports, he, however, maintained that the lack of professional approach to mould our talents and potentials has been one of the reasons why we (Nagas) fail to achieve higher. He, therefore, advised the younger generation to involve professionally in anything they venture out.
