Mokokchung, Nov. 7 (EMN): The Salangtem Government Middle School (GMS) in Mokokchung celebrated its literary day in memory of Taliakum Pongen, who passed away early this year in February. Taliakum was an English teacher in Salangtem GMS and was a strong pillar of the school.

The literary day had two sessions in which the first session was a formal programme dedicated to late Taliakum. In the formal programme, Toshisenla of Class VIII and Imkongsashi of Class IV read out an ode and dedicated a song for their dear departed teacher.

Chubamenla, the school head teacher, while reminiscing on the life of an exceptional teacher, said that Taliakum was a committed and passionate teacher who was a visionary and had an innovative thinking whose talents and enthusiasm inspired many people especially the students. ‘His charm was not only in dedicating his service towards the society through his works but also caring for his students and nurturing them with his talents,’ the head teacher said.

Mariam, a Class VI student, remembered her teacher as someone who was more a friend than a teacher and as someone who taught them how to sing. She remembered him as a teacher who would come to school in his unusual car and enlightened them with new ways of teaching and learning.

Family members of Taliakum, who attended the event, said that hosting the literary day in memory of their son was of highest honour and greatest blessing for the family. They encouraged the students to learn from his life and wished that his works and love will inspire and encourage everyone. The family members wished that the school will produce many students the like of Taliakum.

The second session of the literary day witnessed competitions in various events which included declamation, speech, solo, painting and synchronised Bible reading. Students from Class I to VIII participated in the various competitions.

As an ode to the deceased teacher K Taliakum Pongen, the students had written letters, poems, songs, odes and made pictures of him all through the year which was displayed in the school premises.
