TMB Report : The 14th anniversary of the “Eikhoi Lairik Ningthina Tamsi” (Let us concentrate in our study) campaign spearheaded by Manipur Students’ Federation (MSF) was observed at Slopeland Public School, Khongjom in Thoubal District on Sunday.
The event witnessed the presence of Secretary, Council of Higher Secondary school Manipur Ch. Biren as Chief Guest, President MSF Sajad Bhuyaimayum as President and Principal Slopeland Public School Babulin as Guest of Honour respectively
Giving the keynote address of the function, MSF general secretary Hijam Roshan insisted that the “Eikhoi Lairik Ningthina Tamsi” campaign was launched with an aim to save the students from the impact of bandh and other strikes, apart from putting them away from migrating the state to other states of the country for academic pursuit.
Roshan alleged that the present education system provided by Manipur Education Department was far beyond encouraging.
He also maintained that bandh and strikes have seriously impacted the academic atmosphere and as a result of this, students from the state are migrating to outside states.
The academic campaign was started on February 9, 2006 whose main objective is to save these students from such mass migration of students from Manipur, he recalled.
Giving his Chief Guest speech, COHSEM Secretary Ch. Biren opined that bringing quality education and concentration on reading would be inter-related.”Children should be provided moral education, should be taught to respect and understand their culture and should be disciplined”, he observed.
Principal Babulin stressed on the importance of teacher, saying that “teacher can shape a student whatever in any form”.
MSF President Md. Sazad called for people’s participation in bringing “Eikhoi Lairik Ningthina Tamsi” academic campaign a success. He also said that the society would be more developed if the young generations pursue their academic goal with discipline.
A souvenir published by MSF was also released at the event.
