Comparing this with the present times, he said students now, had all the facilities and described them as a “privileged generation”.
He encouraged the students to cultivate the art of hard work and perseverance in order to reach greater heights.
The advisor also stressed on the importance of skill development and advised the student community to follow the right path and to be good citizens.
Meanwhile, conference speaker, Nagaland University professor, Dr. GT Thong in his speech lamented how many students were being forced to drop their studies “due to financial reasons”.
