DIMAPUR, OCTOBER 10

Addressing the congregation on the auspicious day, C.L.John reminded the students that before the birth of Christianity in Nagaland there was neither united Naga nor a recognized Konyak community. But after the coming of Christianity in the state Naga unity took place and at the same time the beginning of education took birth. With the blessing of Christianity education came into being and because of this he said a student organization such as KSUD is celebrating the 25 years fruit of education.Celebrating the 25 years of the Konyak student community, C.L.John remarked that jubilee celebration signifies honoring the founding members, leaders and remembering the past mistakes and shortcomings to move ahead with greater achievements. The word ‘jubilee’ has been quoted from the Holy Bible which recounts individuals to ‘work and eat’ to take pleasure in the fruit of labor added C.L.John. He therefore called on the student community to contribute a constructive idea with constructive criticism instead of destructive criticism and build a balance society with their valuable contribution and participation.
“Let this jubilee signify blessing and brighter future for Konyak community in general and Konyak Students Union in particular with unity to achieve desired goal for a better society” urged the Minister to the student community.
