Wozhuro (Wokha), 30 December, ( Nagaland Minister for Health and Family Welfare Dr TM Lotha said the Lotha people particularly the younger generations should be prepared to face the massive onslaught by the advancement of the world where only the “fittest” could survive.

Addressing an annual conference of the Wozhuro Range Students Union (WRSU) here at the Community Hall today, the Minister pointed out how the world had been fast “shrinking” and becoming “global village” due to the advance technologies and cyber age.

“The people simply can’t survive in the midst of such massive globalization, fast developing and change scenario and highly sophisticated and competitive era,” the Minister cautioned, adding, “In this situation, you can’t be complacent with what you learnt yesterday, besides your mere BA or MA would not do without having extended educations and other practical knowledge. Therefore you must slog and prepare with your best efforts to compete with the rest of the world.” Dr TM Lotha (right), Minister for Health and Family Welfare, addressing annual Conference of Wozhuro Range Students UnionDr TM Lotha (right), Minister for Health and Family Welfare, addressing annual Conference of Wozhuro Range Students Union
