thinking.” This was stated by Dr Mridul Hazarika, former Vice
Chancellor of Gauhati University who has joined today as
Principal Advisor to the University of Science
&Technology-Meghalaya. Dr Hazarika was speaking after he
formally joined USTM in a ceremony where Mahbubul Hoque,
Chancellor USTM handed over the joining letter to him in the
presence of Dr PK Goswami, Vice Chancellor of USTM, faculty
members and students.
Addressing the gathering Dr Hazarika said, “Every individual has
the power of imagination. But that power needs to be applied.
Why the north-eastern states are suffering? Because they have
failed to keep pace with the growth of several other states.
People of the North East have learned to get by demanding,
instead of using their efficiency.” He also said that no
teaching institution without research background can occupy a
high rank. Research is important for innovation and people as
well as institutions must contribute to the community at large.
Teamwork is the most important part of an institution. Ideas
need to be generated and culture need to be created, he added.
