DIMAPUR — Patkai Christian College (PCC), Chümoukedima, organised a workshop on ‘violence and its social impact’ to commemorate the International Day of Peace at Bundrock auditorium, PCC, on Thursday.

Advocate Apila Sangtam, Gauhati High Court, Kohima Bench, who was the guest speaker on the occasion, deliberated on different types of violence, such as homicide, assault, robbery, and rape.

Stating that nothing good comes out of violence, Sangtam discussed the different types of domestic violence—physical, sexual, verbal, emotional, and economic—and explained the procedures to file a domestic violence case.

Raising concern over the issue, she said that society lacks awareness and, as such, people do not have information on acts and added that ‘ignorance should not be an excuse’.

She shared a detailed insight on the Domestic Violence Act, 2005, and urged the students to be active agents in spreading awareness against domestic violence.

Dr. Wojanbeni Yanthan, assistant professor, department of Philosophy, stated in her introductory remarks that for any kind of change to take place, there has to be a shift in people’s perceptions, and for any kind of shift to take place in perceptions, people have to give time to produce the value.

She advocated the philosophy of rethink, redirect, reconsider, reevaluate, and re-educate as keys to guiding one’s moral beliefs, values, and moral sciences, and she opined that only then can society bring about the change that people wish to see.
