Mr. Athikho, a teacher of Modern College Nagaland was a part of the National Integration Tour at Ahmedabad organized by Assam Rifles on behest of Indian Army.


“Thank you ASSAM RIFLES for this beautiful opportunity that combined adventure, excitement and learning in the most enjoyable way. The tour truly connected us Indians both physically and emotionally enabling a deeper bond of unity and fraternity. Salute to the Assam Rifles and the stature of India’s position as a global power.”

Meeting with the GOC of Golden Katar Division was a memorable experience for Mr.Athiko.


“We were honored to meet the GOC and all officers of the Golden Katar Division and got to experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of riding a tank as well.”

They visited the Sabarmati Ashram which is also famously known as Gandhi Ashram and ended the day with a visit to Atal bridge. As the teacher said.


“The next day we were all excited to visit the prestigious IIM (INDIAN INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT) Ahmedabad which has produced personalities like Mallika Sarabhai, Raghuram Rajan and Chetan Bhagat. After the visit, we proceeded to ISRO Ahmedabad which is also known as Vikram Sarabhai Space Exhibition where we got to learn about the miracles of outer space.”

Ahmedabad is truly a magnificent manifestation of human effort. It is a heritage city, not only for India but globally too.
