LAKHIMPUR: “There are lots of discrepancies in the education system of Assam. Several subjects like Moral Science, History and Geography were dropped from the educational courses of the State and a mixed subject was incorporated in the course as their substitute. But the mixed subject is unable to provide perfect knowledge to the students of the State regarding the concept of the subjects concerned,” stated Ismail Hussain in Lakhimpur on Saturday while taking part as the chief guest of the open session of the concluding ceremony of the golden jubilee festival of Lakhimpur Collegiate Model High School.
In connection with his lecture, the prominent writer and critic of the State further stated that the distance between politicians and education had expanded at present. “This distance has highly affected the student community as well as the rural society of the State. If the politicians can dedicate little time towards the uplift of the education sector by promoting their intellectual and cultural mentality, they can undoubtedly change the society,” he asserted.
The year-long golden jubilee festival of the glorious academic institution of Lakhimpur district concluded on Saturday with grand success. The second day’s agenda of the concluding ceremony began with a colourful cultural rally inaugurated by Lakhimpur DSP (Headquarter) Runa Neog. It was followed by the open session chaired by Lakhimpur MLA-cum-celebration committee president Utpal Dutta. Axam Xahitya Xabha vice-president Dr. Hemanta Kumar Baruah inaugurated the open session which commenced with a chorus presented by the students of the school. Dr. Baruah elaborated on the problems faced by the schools of the vernacular medium and called upon the students to pursue their education, not only to shine in individual life but also to enlighten the society. As a chief guest, Ismail Hussain delivered an inspiring lecture, appealing to students to be punctual, studious, thoughtful and patriotic in order to build the society with integration fighting against discrimination. He appealed to the parents and guardians to guide their wards by understanding their psychology. Lakhimpur District Inspector of Schools Mridul Kumar Nath released the souvenir of the event titled Subarna Lekha, published under the editorship of Asim Saikia.
In the programme, Lakhimpur ADC Bipul Kumar Das, Sadou Asom Karmachari Parishad organizing secretary Naren Kalita, SI of Lakhimpur Education Block Padmeswar Borah, professor Bani Kanta Konwar and a galaxy of prominent personalities of the district took part as a guest of honour.
