Commissioner and Secretary, Veterinary and Animal Husbandry and Sericulture L. H Thangi Mannen, said creation of Kohima Science College (KSC) was a mark of belief in future and a display of faith in the capabilities of the state. Mannen was addressing the students at Kohima Science College 49th foundation day celebration held at college auditorium today.
“There comes a day in everyone’s life when it is time to retrospect on the past and at the same look into the future”, she said and urged students of Kohima Science College, which is on the brink of completing 50 years of achievement, to start a new beginning for the next fifty years by widening its horizon to meet the challenge of the world.
Stating that dedicated team with focused vision and mission was needed to take the current activities to insurmountable heights, Mannen said the institution could act as an inspiration to many budding scientists and technologists to work together to deal with the issues faced by the global community.
Thangi said “Since Kohima Science College was founded, the world has changed. We have achieved much in that time, yet transforming world around us means we too have to change”, she said and pointed out at the various challenges that had threatened the world including climate crisis, pressure on natural resources such as water and fuel and on the other hand the population demand for higher standards of living”.
“We face a world where the demand of healthcare will increase even faster than our population and the failing financial system in one country or a leak of technology from one company can have profound consequences for the country and economy”, she added.
She also reminded on the fast advancement of technology and stressed the need for constant upgradation and information sharing in all professional fronts.
Earlier, principal, Kohima Science College, Dr. Vituo Belho welcomed the gathering while Dolhoukho-u Peseyie spoke on behalf of the land donors and Vimenuo Sekhose spoke on behalf of the founders members.
