Staff Reporter

With an objective to raise awareness among students on different career choices, Pilgrim Higher Secondary School (PHSS) Dimapur organised an “educational fest” at the school premises, here, on Saturday.
Addressing the students, deputy commissioner (DC) Dimapur, Sachin Jaiswal lauded the school for organising an event that brought together an inspiring crowd of people for students.
He encouraged the students to take in every drop of knowledge they acquire at the fest and not to be prejudiced towards the career they choose.
Have an open mind and evaluate extensively to be sure of the career you want, DC stated.
Pointing out that a person was the best judge of his capabilities, Sachin said parents were number one cheerleaders and guides, however, he stated that one should also have their own choices.
He encouraged the students not to get carried away by what people will think and to do whatever interests them with honesty, sincerity and dedication.
Nagaland has a very higher literacy rate compared to other states however, the problem of unemployment is high, DC said.
He stated that the Naga society must come out of the mindset of doing only comfortable jobs such as government jobs or staying unemployed. At the fest, a total of 14 representatives from the field of education, music, hospitality & aviation, fashion, bank, business, Indian Air Force, sports, medical and NCC attended the event.
The representatives exhorted the students on prospects of choosing their careers through the right routes, depending on their calibers.
Targeted audiences at the educational fest included students from classes VIII and above. Students from neighboring schools were also invited to the fest.
