Dimapur, Sep. 25: With the objective to inspire students studying in the field of commerce and management, Tetso College in Dimapur celebrated its 4th Comfiesta, an academics and entertainment festival. The theme of the event was “where talents meet.” The programme was conducted on September 25 in the college’s amphitheatre.

Comfiesta is an annual inter school and college event organised by the college.

Amar Ranjan Dey of the college’s commerce and management section said in his welcome address that the sole purpose of the event was “to promote the speed of the subjects through activities to enable students to think out-of-the-box.” He expressed gratitude to the schools and colleges participating in the competition and hoped that the participation would increase in the years to come.

The vice principal of the college Dr Hewasa Lorin spoke about how the number of commerce students was fewer than the number of students in the field of arts and science.

“We need to promote and encourage that commerce is essential for the economy of our society,” Lorin said. Comfiesta fits perfectly the ambition to boost commerce and management studies, she said.

Lorin queried the students: “How does your degree help you in contributing towards the society.” She advised the students to find ways to connect with what they learn in order for them to put their knowledge into action.

The competitions during the event included ethnic dance forms, elocution, business discussions, talent platforms, gaming, and fruit crafting, among others.

With a whooping victory of four first places out of nine competition categories, Unity College bagged the overall champion’s title.

Unity College was adjudged the winner of the ethnic dance competition while Mount Mary College was declared the runner-up.

Subhana Rahman of Unity College bagged the first position in the Business Talkathon on the topic ‘should we trust banks?’

St. Joseph College in Kohima was adjudged winner of the ‘Dramatisement’ with Dimapur Government College taking the runner-up position.

Unity College bagged the Comfiesta’s Got Talent prize with Mezhur Higher Secondary School securing the runner-up prize.

St. Joseph College was adjudged the winner of the I Can Speak competition, which was conducted on the topic ‘emerging trends in national and international business.’ Tetso College took the runner-up prize.

Akhai Nbung of SD Jain Girls’ College won the Food Crafting competition.

Tetso College bagged the first position of Sell It, Win It while St. Joseph University won the Mobile Legends competition, a mobile game contest.
