ANCSU observes 43rd foundation day


All Nagaland College Students’ Union (ANCSU) observed its 43rd foundation day-cum-degree toppers’ felicitation at Molu Ki conference hall, here, on Tuesday.
The programme was graced by deputy director, directorate of Higher Education, Dr. Medongoi Rhakho and controller of examination, Nagaland University Lumami, Dr. Maongsangba as guest speaker and special guest.
Speaking at the event, Dr. Medongoi Rhakho said toppers recognised their weaknesses and focussed on their strengths while losers recognised their strengths but forget to work on their weaknesses.
Dr. Medongoi pointed out that Nagas were living in a corrupt society because corruption was not only taken for granted but checking corruption has become a matter of jealousy for someone’s success and society never condemned but accepted it as a way of life.
He informed that Nagaland had three Grade A under the NAAC assessment, which was granted to autonomous Kohima Science College, St. Joseph’s College Jakhama and Patkai Christian College and recently Fazl Ali College Mokokchung which, he said was a pride for the state.
In his address, Dr. Maongsangba acknowledged ANCSU for its attempt to bring quality education in the state and for having a sensible approach when any issue arose.
Maongsangba said the pandemic affected both students and teachers in the educational sector, especially with the online mode which was a real challenge.
He, however, said nothing deterred the students from studying hard and that their effort was well paid off.
Maongsangba also informed that there will be only four gold medallist one each from Arts, Commerce, Science with honours and said university will work out and announce the name of the four medallists during the annual convocation.
He encouraged students who could not make it by stating that marks did not define one’s future but it all depended on one’s fighting spirit.
Former President ANCSU (1989-90) Theja Therie also spoke on the occasion on behalf of the seniors. He encouraged the students to work beyond Facebook, Instagram or twitter and to be the change.
In his presidential address, ANCSU president, Toito D Chishi paid respect to the pioneers of ANCSU who struggled during the most difficult times and established the union for future generation.
He said felicitating the toppers was initiated in 2018 keeping in mind that students and youth were strongest pillar of the society. He, therefore said it was imperative to identify, understand and address the pertinent issues and challenges faced today.
Chishi said in the 2022 batch, altogether 5075 cleared out of 6770 students appeared and the percentage was 84.27.
The programme was chaired by ANCSU vice president Kahovi Z. Rochill. Vizeisieno Nagi spoke on behalf of the toppers.
