Parliamentary secretary for Industries & Commerce Dr. Nihoshe Yeptho Saturday exhorted students to kick bad habits if they wanted to succeed in life. Addressing the 23rd freshers'-cum-parting social of Public College of Commerce (PCC) here at Town Hall as the chief guest, the parliamentary secretary said the most dangerous pollution, especially for students, in the present day was "self-style" pollution. He said this type of pollution starts with bad habits and vices frequently indulged by youths and college students, but which later on assumes dangerous proportions leading to addiction and diseases. "Health is everything, if health is lost everything is lost," Nihoshe said. Reminding the freshers on the adage "Well begun is half done," he also urged the seniors to be an example to the freshers. The chief guest also donated Rs. 50,000 towards the college. Chairperson, Dimapur Municipal Council, Khekaho Assumi who also spoke on the occasion said the first and foremost duty of a student was to study since the only way to achieve success or reach top position was by climbing the ladder of labour. Dismissing the popular notion that only some students were bright while the rest were dull as outright fallacy, Khekaho said even the so-called dull student can outshine others through hard work. He further exhorted the students to take initiatives in various fields despite criticisms. "A leader is someone who rises above the occasion and leads from the front," he added. Highlights of the programmes included invocation prayer by Alotoli Awomi, speech by PCC principal Abhijit Chakraborty, welcome address by SUPCC president Puloto P Chishi, speech on behalf of freshers and outgoing students by Mughali (Cl XI) and Rongsen Majem (B.Com final) respectively and vote of thanks by SUPCC general secretary Alo Khing. Bokato and Jayanti acted as chairperson and secretary respectively in the first session. A major attraction of the first session was the selection of Mr. & Miss Freshers. A host of NPF party functionaries and DMC members also attended the programme.
