Reiterating his stance, former Maharashtra Governor Dr S C Jamir urged the Naga youth to work upon building a new Naga society. He also called upon them to wake up and move ahead in bringing about a new venture of peace, progress and prosperity on unity.
Addressing the centenary celebration of World Girl Guide (WGG) at DDSC stadium on Friday, Jamir stated that Nagas have lived many years in blood and unseen tears, which has never been heard and cared for by humanity.
He also pointed out that the long years of sufferings and hardships have made the Nagas realize the importance of love. “The world is watching how brave Nagas will overcome all the infirmities…with love, peace, compassion…” he said.
Underscoring the importance of nation building with the spirit of Scouts & Guides, Jamir called upon the gathering to make compassion and commitment, the foundation of the society.
Maintaining that it would be a folly to treat future as an extension of the past, he encouraged the girl guides to look towards the future with hope and expectations.
“Nothing is permanent…and yet, we desperately try to cling on the past. Instead of working of renewal, through adopting to change, we rather become preservers” he said and lamented that it was because of this that the Naga people were stuck in a great dilemma. Dr Jamir also urged them to upgrade their ideas and mindset in pace with the fast changing world.
Earlier, Dr Jamir released balloons marking the celebration of the centenary.
State Organizing Commissioner (Guides) Vimezhonu Tetso who also attended the celebration presented a few highlights on World Girl Guiding Centenary Celebration while the welcome address was delivered by DEO Dimapur and district chief commissioner Asono Ndang.
The other highlights of the celebration included folk dances, songs by school students of various schools of Dimapur.
