Madhya Pradesh students’ exchange programme ends

Nagas are very polite and helpful: MP students

A closing ceremony of the five-day student’s exchange programme between Madhya Pradesh and Nagaland under Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav-Ek Bharat Shreshta Bharat (AKAM-EBSB) concluded on Wednesday, at National Institute of Technology (NIT), Chümoukedima.
According to PIB Kohima, during the five-day visit, students were taken to various places to experience and explore the rich cultures and traditions of Nagaland.
The students were taken to Khonoma, the first green village in India. Feedbacks from some of the students read that “Khonoma was like heaven” and that the place was “beyond beautiful.”
They remarked that with its scenic beauty, the natural environment and the fresh air, it was an experience they would remember for a lifetime.
One of the experiences that the students found interesting was the traditional method of cooking.
They said they were “amazed to find that food can taste so good even without adding the prime ingredients that were must for cooking in our state.”
On handlooms and handicrafts of Nagaland, the students said they were intrigued by the varied colours and patterns and that they loved the stories behind them
During their visit to Chompu Museum at Sovima, the students shared that they were taken back in time to see all the ancient items being displayed.
On indigenous people of Nagaland, the students described Nagas as “very friendly, polite, humble and helpful” people.
Describing their journey as memorable and an eye-opener, the students said if they given the opportunity, they would visit Nagaland again.
Pointing out that many people were not aware of the “beautiful and quite state” that was situated in the Northeast India, the students said they would spread the story of Nagaland when they go back home. Activities of the visiting students also included site visitation to Agriculture University (SASRD) Medziphema and organic market in Dimapur.
The MP students also interacted with students from Nagaland and invited them to visit Madhya Pradesh in the future.
It may be mentioned that Madhya Pradesh and Nagaland were paired together under AKAM-EBSB, an initiative by the ministry of Education and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi which aims to enhance interaction and promote mutual understanding between people of different states and union territories.
