Students Union of Patkai Christian College (autonomous), Chumukedima- Seithekema celebrated its 34th annual social-cum- silver jubilee on Wednesday. It was a colourful cultural programme meant to break the silence between students and a chance for seniors to welcome students who stepped into threshold of education with great expectations. The reserved attitude of the freshers' vanished as they came together to participate in the celebration. Exhorting the mixed students from the northeastern region, chief guest of the occasion Mani Charenamei, Member of Parliament, Lok Sabha, Manipur said, though people in the northeastern region are close, "we do not practice tolerance" and does not have a mind to help each other, "we, northeasterners are failing to understand our problem" Underlining the problem of land division in the north eastern region, Charenamei said like any other countries in the rest of the world, Nagas should be under one administration as it entailed co- existence of all communities. "We are divided into many states and facing discrimination in our land and without consent our land have been sold and divided and we use boundary as a tool of discrimination", he continued, "Unless we bring our land together, division will go further and time may come when we may be forced to say we are different from each other". Charenamei appealed the students to be politically aware and e conscious of the things taking place around also urging them to have proper planning to become 'somebody' in the society. He encouraged the students to "dream big and work diligently for your people" Radiating energy, enthusiastic students gave a colourful cultural show as they came dressed in traditional attires depicting the culture and region they belong to. Special features of the programme included bamboo dance by Paite Students' Union, folk dance by Chakhesang Students Union and 'excellent rise' - theme song. The hall reverberated with hoots of the audience as meritorious students', subject teachers and HoDs were awarded cash prize and citations for their achievement. Highlight of the programme included, release of silver jubilee memento by Reverend Dr. Tuisem A. Shishak, Principal Emeritus and Principal's address by Rev. Rungsung, Principal PCC. Talisunep Imchen, deputy SP (Security) Intelligence Branch- Kohima (who served as vice president from 1998-99) was among the alumni who attended jubilee celebration.
