Inaugural programme for the two-day national seminar under the theme, “Leadership, connectivity and combat: Exploring Subhash Chandra Bose’s link with Naga Hills and parts of North East India”, was held at auditorium hall, Pranabananda Women’s College (PWC), Dimapur, on May 28.

The seminar was organised by Pranabananda Women’s College, in collaboration with Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad Institute of Asian Studies (MAKAIAS), an autonomous institution under the ministry of Culture, Government of India. 

The concept of the seminar was to transpose cultural boundaries for national cause, as Subash Chandra Bose’s mission in Inida was much heard and talked about, both in scholastic and academic realm. 

Speaking at the programme as special guest, DC Dimapur, Kevekha Kevin Zehol in a short and brief note stated that he was very privileged to be attending the programme as Netaji’s (Subash Chandra Bose’s) last touch point before he went abroad was  Phek districk, where he (DC) hails from. 

He further encouraged the gathering to remain as student for life time and posses curiosity to learn new things in life. He opined that when one loses curiosity to learn new things, the person will become redundant and laid back. 

Resource person for the seminar included chairman, Netaji Subash Chandra Bose Memorial Society, Nagaland, Dr. Vekho Swuro and HoD Englsih Department, Assam University, Diphu campus, Dr. Anup Kumar Dey. 

Former member of ICHR and a noted historian, Dr. Purabi Roy delivered the key note address and projected a powerpoint of Netaji’s career as a national freedom fighter.
