The 55th freshers’ day meet-cum-annual session of Kohima Sumi Students Union (KSSU) was held on Saturday at State Academy hall with G. Kaito Aye, minister for road and bridges as chief guest.
In his address, Kaito said “students are leaders of tomorrow and the future belonged to them” and said students cannot afford to take studies casually in the fast changing competitive world.
“If you do no equip yourselves adequately now, while you are exposed to complicated and cut-throat competition” the minister urged the students to never neglect their studies when they had the opportunity.
Stating that Kohima being the capital of Nagaland was a conglomerate of all tribes, Kaito urged the Sumi students to live up to the expectation of the community and to never indulge in anti-social activities that could damage or defame oneself and community.
