DIMAPUR — The Department of Political Science, St. Joseph University (SJU), Chümoukedima, hosted its sixth annual Veritas lecture, on the theme ‘A conversation on career and legal literacy’ at the university auditorium, on March 26.

The event featured Imnalensa, DIGP (Trg), Chümoukedima, as the resource person, an update stated.

Imnalensa’s lecture was structured into three sections on career exploration opportunities. He shared his experiences as both a union and state public service commission aspirant and also highlighted on the Narcotic Drug and Psychotropic Substance Act (NDPS).

The resource person also dispelled the misconception that success in exams such as defence, UPSC, SSC, banking, and NPSC is reserved only for top achievers.

He attested that though he was an average student, he was able to pass one of the hardest exams because of his grid, perseverance and hard work, and went on to remark that success is not determined by one’s intelligence but rather by the level of passion in pursuing one’s objectives.

Maintaining that there will be obstacles in the way of achieving one’s goal, the police officer however encouraged the gathering not to be diverted by setbacks, but instead keep going and never lose sight of the objectives

Quoting Roosevelt, “No one can make us feel inferior without our consent”, Imnalesnsa inspired the attendees to believe in their abilities and also advocated for a shift in the mentality of always hankering after government employment.

He urged the audience to explore opportunities in the private sector, citing Steve Jobs and Ambanis as examples of entrepreneurial aspirations.

Emphasising the threat of drugs, particularly to Nagaland’s youth, he also expounded on different penalties outlined in the Drugs Act.

The police officer urged the youth to abstain from drug use.

Further, he underscored on the potential of each and every individual, whether in government or the private sector, to effect positive societal change through their actions. He encouraged overcoming obstacles and making constructive contributions to social advancement.

Following the lecture, question-and-answer session period was organised, where faculty and students engaged in discussions on political pressure in public administration, legal awareness in Naga society and strategies for navigating success and failure in life.
