Satakha Range Students Union celebrates golden jubilee

Satakha, January 13 (MExN): The golden jubilee celebration of the Satakha Range Students Union (SRSU) kicked off on Wednesday with the unveiling of the jubilee monolith by Nagaland Minister for Agriculture and Co-operation G Kaito Aye.

On the occasion, the Minister asked the students to think outside the box, work hard, study with determination and compete with diligence. “The struggles you face and the experiences you endure added with the book knowledge you gain is far better than being dependant on others for everything,” said the Minister.

According to updates from the Minister’s press secretary, Aaronto Jimomi, the Minister also cautioned the students on the use of social media and appealed the students to use the platform to gain more knowledge and for being resourceful rather than misusing the platform and damaging one another.

While acknowledging that the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically affected the students, the Minister also said that the government is putting every effort through different means and avenues to see that the student community is not left behind.

Stating that a student's job is to educate oneself sincerely and the leader's and representative's job is to support them in all ways possible, Kaito exhorted the gathering to, “Look beyond 50 years and work hard, set a vision for 75 years and strive harder.” 

He further urged the people of Satakha to unite and strengthen the community and the students’ community in particular. “In unity there is strength and with strength comes progress and development,” he said, while calling on the community to “unite and strengthen one another and together make Satakha greater and better.”

The Minister acknowledged the pioneers and the yester leaders of SRSU and conveyed his best wishes for success of the SRSU Golden Jubilee celebrations.

Earlier, Sümi Kiphimi Küqhakulu (SKK) President Hutoshe Kits also addressed the gathering and observed that the world is rapidly advancing in all aspects. He encouraged the students to be aware of such global developments and adapt accordingly in order to bring positive change in the society.

Let SRSU be an example to students of not just the Sümi community but the whole Naga student community in general, he added.
