Ao Students Union Dimapur (Ao Kaketshir Telongjem Dimapur) held its 44th General Conference & Excellency Award program on March 30 at IMC hall, Dimapur. 

Speaking at the program as guest speaker, director, CECS and nodal director, Childline Nagaland, Subonenba Longkumer, stated that it was high time Nagas unite and do away with “ism”. 

He asserted that Nagas had distinguished themselves in many ways but lost the feeling of togetherness and brotherhood. 

Longkumer stated that the Nagas cannot move forward because they have been divided in many things, even to the extent of dividing themselves within the same tribes.

He also called out parents as being the ones to blame for thinking government jobs were the only source of income and expressed the view that  parents have ingrained their children with the wrong mentality of seeking only government jobs, leading to the problem of today’s generation -- unemployment.

He went on to the subject of the number of unions and associations in Nagaland and in a jocular vein opined that if there had been a World Record for the highest number of unions and associations formed, Nagas would easily win it.

Longkumer then slammed the practice of starting unions and associations just for the sake of doing it and stated that many of these unions are formed by poor and lazy people and are controlled by the rich and powerful.  

He also expressed strong disagreement with the phrase “Youth are the leaders of tomorrow”. Youth cannot be the leaders of tomorrow if there is no today because without a today there cannot be a tomorrow, he asserted.

He however encouraged the youth saying that they can bring about the change in society needed today.

In his speech, Longkumer also acknowledged and congratulated the awardees and urged them to grow more humble and work harder to achieve greater things in life.  

In the General Conference & Excellency Award program, chaired by office bearers, the invocation was earlier offered by youth director incharge, DABA, Limaakum. 

Altogether, four students from HSLC and two from HSSLC were awarded with the Excellency Award. Sangerbenla Tzüdir, top 6, Limatula Imchen, top 12, T Sentolila Lemtur, top 13 and Zuiner Jamir, top 18 were recipients of the award in the HSLC category and Lanukaba, top 5 (Arts) and Akumienla Pongentsur, top 8 (Arts), for the HSSLC catagory. Top 10 candidates were awarded cash and certificates and the others were given certificates. 

A welcome address was delivered by ASUD president, Lanutoshi Aier and Sentikala and Moajungla Jamir presented melodious numbers.

In the second session of the program, various committees presented their reports followed by a time of interaction and discussion. 

The oath of office to newly nominated office bearers was administered by Sungkum Aier, convenor, Nominating Committee. Thereafter, a special prayer was offered for both incoming and outgoing office bearers by Imnatoshi Longkumer, associate pastor DABA. 

The program ended with a benediction offered by Sunep Jamir, former ASUD member. The new office bearers for the tenure 2019-2020 include Moayanger Jamir as president, Temsukaba Aier as vice president, Aoneken Walling as the general secretary, and Lanuwapang as assistant general secretary.
