Speaking at the facilitation programme, Hynniewta urged the young students to shy away from bad habits and instead make a habit of getting up early in the morning, while stressing that late risers have no future.
He said that the state of Meghalaya is very rich in biodiversity and due to this it has also been considered by some as a paradise for biologists.
Concerned over climate change, he said, “We need to find ways and means to make this world a better place and one thing we can do is plant more trees.”
Stressing on the need to preserve the sacred groves in the state, he said, “I was born near Mawsmai sacred grove and at a very young age I was inspired by the sacred forest and its surroundings and I started to try create a sense of responsibility amongst my own tribal people for conservation, protection and improvement of the environment for counteracting the world climate change.” Earlier, chief guest at programme C.P. Marak, Principal Chief Conservator of Forest, said, the achievements of Hynniewta has not only brought laurels to himself but to the State and its people.
