Students monolith stones inaugurated in Akhoya
MOKOKCHUNG — To mark the successful hosting of the 69th general conference of the Ao Students’ Conference (AKM) 2023, the Akhoya Students’ Union (ASU) erected seven monolith stones representing AKM and its subordinate six ranges at Keyi Meta Park in Akhoya village, some 50 kilometres off Mokokchung town on Friday.
The monoliths called ‘Rejusanger Longzung’ (monolith stones of the students) were officially inaugurated by Anenla T Sato, commissioner and secretary, in the presence of AKM officials, Akhoya Students’ Union officials, Akhoya Village Council members and AKM local planning committee of 69th AKM general conference.
Speaking at the inaugural programme, the chief guest reminded that the Ao community in the present era has declined in many aspects as compared to three decades ago. She, therefore, appealed to the student community to give good leadership as their predecessors have given their best wisdom to the Naga society and also for the future generations to come.
She asserted that for innovation and planning, government officials and legislators should listen to the public voice because public participation is important to project the kind of future and vision they want for society.
Stating that today’s world is rapidly changing, she advised the student community to plan and prepare in advance what kind of career they want to pursue. She added that merely holding a degree has no value as the world today wants professional degrees along with certain kinds of enhancement skills.
“We are apprehensive that robotic technology will consume all human resources but human resources cannot be replaced if you are smarter and resourceful,” she encouraged the students.
She also said that in this complicated and complex world, it is challenging to decide for the future and advised the student community to focus on fields which would be better and beneficial for them.
“The world never waits for you and there are no holidays for seeking knowledge,” she asserted.
The guest of honour and AKM president, Lanutoshi Aier, acknowledged the sacrifices rendered by the people of Akhoya for the successful hosting of the 69th general conference of AKM. He also appealed to take collective responsibility in maintaining the AKM monoliths as they belong to all the people.
T Aochuba, AKM planning committee (local) also dedicated the monoliths for all the people at the event.
