East Shillong MLA Mazel Ampareen Lyngdoh who attened the programme as the chief guest mentioned that one must keep on updating oneself and not be close-minded for knowledge. She also said that if all the degrees cannot change a person’s mindset, then it is not of much use. Our country has enough jobs for young people, but one must venture into new avenues.
