The 23rd General Conference of the Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) got underway here at Mopungchuket village, Monday. Hosted by Ao Students’ Conference (AKM), the conference of the NSF is being held under the theme “Forging Mutual Destiny.” The conference started with much fanfare where thousands of student delegates as well as various renowned personalities of the state attended the conference. The reception cell has so far recorded more than 1000 delegates from 24 federating and sub-ordinate units while some were yet to reach the venue. The introductory session of the conference started after an impressive opening ceremony performed by the Mopungchuket village where Principal, Baptist High Kohima, Pheluopfhelie Kesiezie was the resource person and spoke on the topic “Forging Mutual Destiny.” Enunciating the concept of Naga nationalism in its true perspective, Pheluopfhelie Kesiezie, in his speech, urged Naga youths to put their trust in God and steer their destiny using fair and just means so as to take up the challenge in steering their destiny with a clear sense of direction. Taking a lesson from history, he said revolutions and reformations were rooted in spirituality and that those which used violence and injustices were relegated to history and leaving behind a trail of trauma, despair and a regret that could never be wiped away. He lamented on the condition of contemporary Naga society that was plagued with division, fear and hatred and added, that when brother killed brother, it was not only killing a soul but also the soul of the Naga nation. He urged upon the NSF, as the appropriate body, to raise consciousness among Nagas on current problems and to build bridges among the common people to forge a mutual destiny which God has predestined for the Nagas.
