Naga Students' Union, Bangalore (NSUB) celebrated its 39th Freshers' Day on August 30. About 800 Nagas gathered at Tagore Hall, UTC to welcome in the freshers to Bangalore. The event took off with a warm welcome from the compere, Angukali Rotokha, and all present befittingly singing "All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name". Allen Longkumer, the first Chaplain of the Naga Christian Fellowship Bangalore (NCFB), invoked the presence of God. As the union's President Aran A Chihui took the stage for acknowledgement and the Presidential Note, he requested the members to observe a moment of silence to share in solidarity, the sufferings and persecutions faced by the Christians in Orissa, and outlined the importance of understanding the purpose of the Union and the members' participations in strengthening this blessed establishment, further defining the beauty of a community, the joy to belong in and the gravity of staying connected through it. He wished the best for the freshers' and gave away gifts to about 40 of them who attended the function. Pastor Zhabu Yimsung, NCFB, offered a prayer of blessings for the freshers'. The Center of Music Education Choir, New Life Bible College, spelled a lovely rendition of a choral piece at the occasion. Representing the freshers', Achumbeni Kithan, I BSc Christ College and Moakum, I MDiv SABC, expressed their profound joy at the welcome and spoke on their impressions, aspirations and expectations. Poumai Students' Union presented a folk song, reminding us of our roots from where we have branched out. The theme "On Your Mark" was aptly exposed by Rev. Gavin Cunningham, Pastor, First AG Church, Bangalore. He dwelt on three vital elements needed to run the race and to run it right -the "What, Where and How" of taking the mark. To the freshers', he highlighted the fact of how one may come with a very clear purpose in mind, but eventually get side-tracked and blurred in the midst of the numerous possibilities and options that the city life offers and displays. Specifying the expertise and love of Nagas for music, Mero Rozelle Mero, MD of The People Channel encouraged for a Naga ensemble saying nothing was impossible if students could only tap the interest and guide it along the right path. She hoped that the Nagas, who have moved out from their homes, pursue their interest, succeed, go back and bring constructive & dynamic changes.
