 Oriental college Kohima organized the 2nd skill fest at its college auditorium with chief executive officer (CEO) Entrepreneur Associates, Kohima Nagaland Neichute Duolo as the keynote speaker on Wednesday.

Doulo in his address challenged Naga youth to change the mindset that government jobs were the only option for employment and to earn a living. He encouraged the youth to take up entrepreneurship, and said the land had ample opportunities and resources for entrepreneurs and for enterprise if utilized properly. Doulo cautioned the young students that the problems of the present society were not only about money and resources but also wrong mindset. He also highlighted various opportunities in farm based skills in livestock and horticulture, skill development in education with English teaching skills, construction, housekeeping for homes, folksong teachers and story tellers etc.

Emphasising more on skill development, he said that there was a need to explore potential skills and their development, in the context of Nagaland, like folksong teachers and story tellers, to fill in the needs of the market and emerging gaps in skilled human resources. Principal Oriental College Kohima Dr. Ketshukietuo Dzuvichu, in his address, said that the program had been organized to help young people live a productive life and create an impact in society and individuals. He said that it was disheartening to know that more than 90,000 educated unemployed were in the state and around 600-700 students were graduating every year. Dr. Dzuvichu said annually only around 150-200 graduates were recruited through NPSC. “Where will the rest of the people go?” he asked. He challenged the students to develop skills and find alternative routes for earning a living. Dr. Dzuvichu further said it was high time that the subject skill development got the attention it deserved. He encouraged young people to develop professionalism and skills without which no employer would hire them. He lamented that many non-productive graduates in the state becomes a burden for society. He informed the people gathered that the skill fest includes training for coffee plantation, electrical fittings, knitting, food processing, ornament making, mushroom cultivation, plating and farming, baking, floriculture, handicraft and carpentry, entrepreneurship and others. The program was chaired by Vizotuo Thorie, invocation prayer said by Ketouneinuo Khro, welcome song presented by Seyiechutuo, special presentation by Sabitri Ale and friends, while a benediction prayer was said by Sedevinuo Kelio.
