Parliamentary Secretary, Transport and Communication, Mechanical Engineering, Dako Phom on Saturday called upon students of Chakhesang Students Union to put their knowledge into practice and set good examples. "One example is worth more than hundred words" he said. Speaking at the fresher social of the Chakhesang Students' Union Kohima under the theme "Master your profession", Dako Phom urged the students to follow their slogan by mastering their profession and putting that into practice for the benefit of all. Stating that students' life was a crucial period, Phom advised the students to be careful while selecting their profession. "Your future depends on what you are today", he added. He further asked them to live in social harmony, stating "your greatness of life will begin from the society you live." Dako Phom also stated that the Chakhesang community was coming out as a leading tribe in development and advancing in culture, education, handicrafts, and other allied sectors. He advocated them to continue with it and set good example to the other tribes. Also speaking at the occasion, Parliamentary secretary, Social Welfare, Women and Child Development, Chotisüh Sazo stressed on the importance of quality education to face the competitive world and also reduce educated unemployment problem. He said that everyone has a place in the society, but one has to work hard to reach there. He also urged the students to know their culture stating "there is no law when there is no culture." Stating that the Chakhesang needed to come out of their cocoon of backwardness, he challenged them to compete with the rest of the tribes and not just fight for 33% reservation. With sincerity, hard work and fear for the Lord, he said anything can be achieved. President of Chakhesang Public Organization, Yesonu Veyie called upon the students' community to sincerely uphold their responsibility of changing the Naga society for the betterment. Lamenting that the Naga society was changing for the worse, he said Nagas had lost their culture and traditions in the name of Christianity, lost their language in the name of education and people had become dishonest. He urged the students to bear these duties within a few years time, stating that the society had great expectations on them. The programme also included speeches from the president of CSUK, Solomon Ritse; president of CSU, Metsivoyi Kotso; and the toppers of HSLC 2008 Vethivolü Nyekha, Aveni Koza and Pute-ü Losuh. Songs and cultural items were presented by Chakhesang students from various colleges. While, the Fresher King and Queen of CSUK were crowned to Rupfukoyi from Chandmari Higher Secondary School and Aveni Koza from Kohima Science College respectively.
