Imphal: Education is a kind of war and facing the challenges with courage under any circumstance during the whole period should be counted as marching towards success said Noor Rahman Sheikh, IFS official at Consult General of India, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, during his speech through video-calling during the 1st meritorious award cum career counselling for the successful students in the HSLCE, 2020 of Kshetrigao and Keirao Assembly constituencies held at Community Hall, Rahamania, Kshetri Mayai Leikai on Saturday.
He further said that the students must set target and proceed with determination and hard work in order to succeed and reach the desired destination. If we work hard with full confidence and courage we will surely get success but if we are bog down with doubt, we would not be able to reach the set goals. Manipur is a small state but it has been showing its identity to the whole world in different sectors. He appealed to all students in the state to work hard with courage to become very successful and prominent members of the society.
