AoL training transform youths to a new life
 

From our Correspondent

ITANAGAR, June 4: Candid sharing of heart–touching stories of transformation marked the culmination of the eight–day youth leadership training programme (YLTP) hosted by the Art of Living (AoL) at its Jollang campus, yesterday.

Over 80 youth from different parts of the State participated in the residential training that focused on creating a brigade of motivated and committed youth who are ready to bring about transformation in the society.

“We are known for our notorious activities in Roing. Some people have even given us the name of Kekra Gang and everybody is scared of us. We used to drink and smoke the whole day and create nuisance sitting by the road side. After this training, I have realized that we have chosen the wrong path. The training has helped us come out of our bad habits and now we aspire to lead a constructive and productive life,” shared one of the participants from Roing in front of a gathering that included the Roing MLA, Laeta Umbrey.

“We have learnt a lot of positive things from the training. From travelling from Roing with members of another local gang, to adjusting with all kinds of people to rigorous schedule, it has been very challenging to cope with the demands of training. Initially I felt like running away from the training, but slowly I started feeling different from inside. I have been a chain smoker and drinker for many years. But in just three days of the training, I am able to control my urge,” added another who heads another self–proclaimed gang under the name of ‘Psycho’.

“My life was totally directionless. There was only chaos and confusion. Not knowing how to handle it, I resorted to drinking and I became an addict. I even discontinued my studies. The training has given a new direction to my life and there is clarity in my mind now. I have already given up my habits, shared Kampu Rehe.

“I have totally come out of addiction to alcohol, ganja and gutkha. I also used to steal money from my mother every morning to indulge in my addictions. The training has helped me to get rid of these four bad habits,” reveals Krishna Tamang from Seppa.

“I was addicted to gutkha for last six years and I came to training with 100 packets of Tiranga secretly packed in my luggage. No, I have totally come out of the addiction,” confessed Asha Kumari from Khonsa.

Apart from these transformations, many participants reported overall growth in their personality. They talked about rising confidence level, improved concentration and focus and ability to face challenges positively.

Many also reported improvement in their health conditions. “I used to suffer from severe breathing problems. I couldn’t walk at all. But after learning the breathing techniques, my breathing problems have completely vanished,” shared Meku Lingfa from Seppa.

The stories of transformation was so touching that Umbrey offered to financially support further training of the Roing group to help them sustain the transformation.

Addressing the gathering, he expressed happiness that members of two dreaded groups of Roing have been given a chance to make a new beginning. He urged the youth to remain committed to what they have learnt during the training and act as role model for others, reminding them of the challenges they will face when they get back to the tempting surroundings back home.

He also lauded the effort of the AoL to train youth from all over the State and requested it to do everything possible to deepen the transformation.

Responding to the request, Rajaque Rahman of the AoL assured the gathering that further programmes including vocation and life skills training will be conducted.

“The workshop has boosted my enthusiasm and confidence level so much so that I can face the world. Before the course, I was so shy that I couldn’t face even my friends. The most important thing I learnt from the course is how to take responsibility and mange time,” said Rupali Taijong from Changlang.

During the training, Mount Everester Tine Meena and IGP (Prison) JK Sharma also visited the trainees and motivated them to give their best and grab the opportunity for transformation with both hands.

Swami Alexendar Luthra, a faculty of the AoL from Holland also conducted many sessions of the training.
