Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (MS)

Udupi, Nov 21: "In the unity of our country there is diversity. In all other countries in the world, one or two languages are spoken. But in our country, hundreds of languages, cultures, rituals, dressing styles etc are seen. However, when the image of a nation comes to our mind we all become Indians. This is the emblem of our devotion and love towards our country. If we work hard, our future life will be peaceful. If we enjoy our life today, then our future will be difficult. So when students get accustomed to difficulties when they are growing, their life becomes successful. Students of NCC should follow discipline in their words and dressing sense," said Cyril Mathias, retired lecturer of Kallianpur Milagres College, who was the chief guest on the occasion of NCC day celebration that was held at St Mary's College, Shirva.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Herald Ivan Monis, principal of the institution said, "For today's generation, discipline, patience and a joyful mind are required for the development of personality."

Dr Monis reminded the gathering about the details of NCC training and said that it is possible to become good citizens of this country.

Awards were distributed to the cadets who had won prizes in various competitions. Roston Saldanha, Pavanraj S Amin, Vishal S Moolya, Varsha S Bangera, Sanath Kumar Shetty, Nivedita Rebello, Harshita Devadiga, Sana Athiya and Suraksha secured prizes.

Junior Under Officer Pavithra Acharya informed the gathering that NCC day is one of the prominent days. It is celebrated throughout the country on the fourth Sunday of November every year because the first unit of NCC was founded on the same day in 1947 in New Delhi.

NCC officer of the college, Lieut K Praveen Kumar, second officer of junior division John Williams Veigas, junior under officer Mohan and lecturer Yashoda were present on the dais. The teaching and non-teaching staff of the college were also present on the occasion.
