‘Naga tradition is fading away with advent of modernization’
DIMAPUR, AUGUST 29
THE 22nd annual fresher’s meet of Eastern Christian College (ECC) (Arts and Commerce) was held today at its college auditorium with theme ‘An Agent of Change’.
Addressing over 1000 students of ECC on the occasion as chief guest, Dr. M. Chuba Ao, President BJP Nagaland lamented that Naga tradition is now fading away with the coming of modernization. He noted that the youths of today’s generation are now living in between western and traditional culture because of which no perfect changes could be taken up.
Chuba advised the students not to be dependent on government jobs alone but instead contribute to the state by becoming self-employed in any possible way. Digital things should be utilized in a positive manner for the cause of bringing development through various social networking sites, stated Chuba.
He also encouraged the students to be innovative by thinking in a different way instead of waiting for a white collar job after graduating.
The first session of the programme witnessed the introduction round of the freshers followed by the entertainment session and various rounds of competitions and talent shows. Tia Sunep Longkumer was crowned as Mr. Fresher 2014 while Jemima V. Kits as Miss Freshers 2014.
