Dimapur, October 21: Lok Sabha MP, Neiphiu Rio said though Nagas today stand with above 80% literacy rate but the knowledge was half done.

"Being patriotic, fearing law of the land, respecting elders, having wisdom of life, knowing our rich traditions will build life in an individual's behaviour and habits and that ultimately build a vibrant society," he said while speaking at the 50 years celebration of Diphupar Naga Youth Organization (DNYO) today.

Rio lauded the DNYO for committing themselves for the welfare and protection of Diphupar Village and also for spearheading in many fronts in Dimapur for the betterment of the society through their involvement in various activities. 

He observed that golden jubilee celebration is a time for reflecting the 50 years of achievements and failures and also to retrospect and celebrate the achievements. 

It is also a time to take the challenges to inspire one another and move forward for a better future, he maintained. 

Describing Diphupar as a miniature Nagaland, with composition of all 16 tribes and other ethnic tribes, he expressed pride of the fact that the village is focused on unity in diversity and promotion of Naga tradition. 

Stating that although Nagas have transformed from the era of head hunting, he observed that Nagas still have many years to be matured and to live with wisdom. 

"If we unite and understand to co-exist with one another we can change for the better and have a better future," he said. 

Asserting that future belongs to the youth, he encouraged the Diphupar Naga Youth Organisation to be a role model to change with positivity and to fight against negativity with the wisdom of the elders. 

Rio also released the souvenir of DNYO and also unveiled the Golden Jubilee Monolith.

On the occasion, Director, Postal Services Nagaland, released a special cover commemorating the historic event. Jubilee Message of MLA Kuzholuzo Nienu Azo who could not be present was read out to the gathering.

Chairman, Diphupar Village Council, Lanutoshi Pongen and vice president Naga Students Federation delivered solidarity messages marking the day. Lotha Youth Organisation and Jubilee Choir enthralled the gathering with special renditions.
