MOKOKCHUNG — Fazl Ali College (FAC) in Mokokchung and Sherubtse College under Royal University of Bhutan, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with an objective to exchange academic material and information as well as to conduct joint research and hold joint seminars and conferences to enhance mutual understanding and cooperation.

The MoU was signed following a joint cultural exchange programme held at FAC on April 3 and 4. The cultural exchange programme was held an aim to provide a platform for cultural immersion, dialogue and collaboration between the two colleges.

On Thursday, students from Bhutan and Nagaland engaged in variety of activities by showcasing an array of rich heritage, tradition and values of both Bhutanese and Naga culture.

The principal of FAC, Dr. I Wati Imchen informed that the cultural exchange programme was a joint collaboration of Sherubtse College from the Kingdom of Bhutan and FAC Mokokchung. He informed that FAC observes its cultural day every year, which has become a regular feature of the college to encourage the young students to embrace their cultural values.

He added that the college would certainly collaborate more with other institutions and countries in the future to bring out the essence of culture.

He urged the students to uphold their heritage saying that no one should be allowed to destroy their traditions and should be passed on from generation to generation. Stating that society is dynamic, he was of the opinion that certain customs and traditional practices that hinder the economic growth and progress should be abandoned or discarded.

On the other hand, he has suggested imbibing values of the forefathers such as mutual respect for each other, honesty and perseverance.

He stated “no culture remains static forever, it changes and how fast you adapt to the change will decide your future.”

He also expressed hope that with the historic cultural exchange programme between the Bhutanese and Nagas, it would be able to achieve its objective in providing an effective forum for fostering better understanding and appreciation of each other’s rich and vibrant culture.
