Dibrugarh, June 14: A discussion titled ‘Youth Mentality and Persolity Development’ organized recently at DHSK College, was attended by London-based Assamese, Tapan Sharma who talked on the attitude or state of mind of today’s youths. Sharma, while addressing the gathering, stated that the sole liability of bringing a change in the mental outlook of a youth lies on him or her, who would help them is taking the society forward to new heights of development.
Speaking further, Tapan Sharma, emphasized learning new things for increasing one’s knowledge, for gathering of new facts and information, as students nowadays lacks the urge to learn and discover new things, He urged upon the young boys and girls not to shy away from doing petty works just like the youths of London or other foreign countries, who have no reservations in doing any kind of job, like barber or sweeper, who get equal respect for their profession. Sharma said that there were many such vocations for which one did not need government’s assistance.
The programme was also attended by Tapan Sharma’s wife, Neeta Sharma and son Risom Sharma. Neeta Sharma, by quoting the phrase ‘Where there is a will, there is a way’ said that if there was will, nothing was impossible for a person. Later, Risom said that in spite of being born and brought up at London, he always conversed in his mother tongue; as such he did not feel disconnected from the students of Dibrugarh University.
Attending the programme, Principal Dr Sashikanta Saikia said that the students of DHSK College were highly benefitted from the programme, which in a way helped them to gather new information and knowledge.
The students were later thanked by the Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Coorditor of ICGC for being part of the programme.
