Former Chief Secretary to the Nagaland government, Alemtemshi Jamir, who graced the occasion as the chief guest drew attention on the elements that enabled one to achieve excellence. Asserting on the present condition of Nagaland, both economically and politically, he questioned “In the midst of such a situation, what are the ingredients to excel?” “Understanding and a clear vision to do well are the primary ingredients to achieve excellence where with understanding and vision, there will be decision” said Alemtemshi. However, he added that it has to be accompanied by determination, perseverance and hard work.
When we talk of excellence, we must be aware of the elements that push one to excel and understand that the requisite qualities come from within. Everybody will tell you to work hard but it is within you that which will decide your opportunities. And with information technology touching almost every aspect of life today, he said that it has enabled the world to become a level playing field irrespective of topographical or economic gap.
