Governor interacts with NCC cadets

ITANAGAR, Jun 25: Governor BD Mishra and his wife Neelam Misra interacted with cadets of the National Cadet Corps (NCC) of the Delhi Public School, Faridabad, at the Raj Bhavan here on Tuesday.
The governor advised the cadets to focus on their academics and extracurricular activities, and impressed upon them to be good citizens and good human beings.
“Always help others and be prepared to assist the needy; be involved in healthy activities for mental and physical fitness,” he said.
Mishra, who himself was an NCC cadet from 1955 to 1959 and passed the C certificate exam, said he was selected into the Indian Army because of his NCC certificate.
He called upon the students to take keen interest in NCC activities, “which motivate, inspire and instill discipline, integrity and patriotism.”
Sharing his experiences in the state, the governor told the cadets that Arunachal and its people “are unique and laudable in many ways.”
“Arunachal Pradesh has 26 major tribes and 100 sub-tribes with distinct dialects and traditions. It is noteworthy that they interact with each other in Hindi, which is very popular,” he said, adding that women’s empowerment and the literacy rate in the state “are improving year by year.”
The cadets, who are on their maiden visit to the state capital, are visiting various parts of the capital and interacting with their fellow cadets in the state. (Raj Bhavan)
