Imphal: Health and IPR Minister Dr. S. Ranjan Singh has said that students should have strong listening power. Listening is a good quality in an individual. Without listening to others, one cannot learn good lessons. We all should cultivate the habit of listening,” he stated.
The minister was speaking as the chief guest on the occasion of the annual day celebration of Comet School, Changangei Ghari, here on Friday. He stated that the school has produced a large number of talented students in its 12 years of existence.
The human resources of the state are no longer dependent on others. The state is also spreading its human resources all over the country and abroad, he added.
Minister Ranjan maintained that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there had been a two-year recess on celebrations and gatherings. There are reports of an increase in COVID cases in some countries recently. The Ministry of Health has also instructed the concerned state health departments to take precautionary measures to control the outbreak.
“It is fortunate that the state has a record of having 0% of COVID active cases. However, we should not be complacent about the report. We should work on preventive measures,” he added.
He suggested that we should learn from our failures instead of losing our hearts. There had been exemplary personalities who had proven themselves by achieving their ambitions. We should learn from their work and lifestyles. “Everybody has talents,” he said, “but we need to nurture and exhibit them.”
The minister also distributed mementoes and certificates to the meritorious students of Comet School as a part of the occasion. He also published the school magazine.
