Lotha students gear up to celebrate 25 yrs in Delhi
DIMAPUR, OCTOBER 26: The Lotha Students’ Union of Delhi (LSUD) is turning 25 years on October 29. The community is all geared up to celebrate the anniversary with the theme ‘He is before all things, and in him all things hold together,’ (Col 1:17) at New Delhi.
The organization was established in 1991 by a handful of Lotha students who had left home for the country’s capital to pursue education. With only a handful of students scattered in different parts of Delhi, the thought of having a larger and common platform was initiated by the few students.
Though the setting up of the student union was in talk during the early ‘80s it was formalised only in the year 1991 with Limhachan Kikon as the group’s first chairman / coordinator.
The journey that started in 1991 had seen an interesting course of action. The nomenclature of the students’ union had also gone through various changes. The students’ group lives by the theme “Ni Milon Ji Tungratoka (let your light shine).”
The organization has now entered its 25th year of existence reaching the milestone of silver jubilee year. This has presented an opportunity to not only celebrate, but also to reflect and be grateful for every brick that made up the foundation of its vision.
Making their presence felt among the Naga community of Delhi and with the idea to foster and maintain close knit relations, the students’ body has organised social programmes and festivals in close coordination with the community officers and soldiers of the Special Nagaland Armed Police (SNAP) for instance.
The organization continues to be a proud student platform that has actively engaged in the social and welfare activities of the Naga community in general in the capital.
With much effort, dedication and sacrifice, the small community in the country’s capital is all set to showcase their achievements that have marked their 25 years.
