The National Integration Tour was organized by the Assam Rifles at the behest of Indian Army to foster the spirit of national integration throughout the country.

In today’s episode I would share my talk with Zasivolie Keyho, a student of Modern College, Piphema

“The most interesting moments of the tour began from Dimapur railway station itself when we started the journey to the west at midnight. Since it was a first for most of us to travel on a train, it was somehow scary yet at the same time it was full of fun and exciting.”

Interacting with top Army brasses was an honour for Zasivolie.

“It was such a great privilege to have interaction with the GOC and various high ranking officers of Golden Katar Division, Ahmedabad. We were also given a special chance to ride a war tank.”

When I asked about this NIT project and Armys’ initiative, this young student replied.

“It’s great to see the Indian Army and Assam Rifle organizing this national integration tour. It’s a wonderful initiative that promotes unity and understanding among different regions of India. It’s important to embrace our diversity and celebrate our shared heritage.”

From a remote state of North East 18 students of Modern College visited lots of places of Western India.
How was his experience?

“I had an amazing time exploring the western part of India! I visited places like Delhi and Ahmedabad. The vibrant culture, delicious food, and stunning architecture left me in awe. Each city has its own unique charm and I loved experiencing the diversity of the region. Delhi’s bustling streets and Ahmedabad’s beautiful Atal bridge were definitely some highlights of our trip.”

One interesting thing Zasivolie admired the most was the giant structure of the transformer OPTIMUS PRIME, which is found at the entry point of the robotics gallery, greeting the tourists.

Visit to the famous Sabarmati Ashram was also in his bucket list.

“The Sabarmati Ashram was an interesting stop where we not only got to see the works and thoughts of Mahatma Gandhi preserved in the form of letters, newspaper clippings, pictures, charkhas and even his utensils.”

This youngster from Nagaland feels Army and Assam Rifles always keep them safe .

“The presence of the Army and Assam Rifles in the North East region provides a sense of security and stability to us. Their dedication and commitment to ensuring the safety of us is really commendable.Their efforts are truly invaluable, and we are grateful for their service.”

Asked how this Sadbhavana tour will help the youth of Nagaland as well as the students of entire North East, he said it will make the United India stronger.

According to him
“The Sadbhavana Project has the potential to make a positive impact on the youth of Nagaland and students across the entire Northeast. By promoting unity and fostering a sense of togetherness, it can contribute to a stronger and more positive united India. It’s wonderful to see initiatives that aim to bridge gaps and build strong bonds among different regions. Together, we can create a brighter future for our country!”
