Let the Model be – Model



When the President of India Dr APJ Abdul Kalam was about to visit the state of Nagaland during October 2002m it was a real soul searching time for all, especially the bureaucrats, as to what would be the most befitting projects-showing to the great man of India who was to make his maiden visit to our state. The questions were, whether, we should show him popular historical villages as we often do to the outsiders or the pride of our state, the War Cemetery or some recent fostered villages. Thanks to the Government for coining a dynamic word as Communitisation – for the first time in the dictionary and came out with the idea of showing the project to the visiting dignitary. Since, then, under the able leadership of the then Deputy Commissioner, Kohima Late Norman Putsure along with members of DPDB, Kohima had taken active role, revamping the existing roles being played by the villagers both men, women, officers and students community in the villages. In order to let the project be a successful one, the Kohima DPDB members even arranged their own tiffin in order not to burden the villagers making several trips to the villages, imparted various trainings to the villagers in their own capacity. This includes Communitisation programs of Health at Merema village and Elementary Education at Khuzama village. Thus, whether, the arrangement was upto to the expectation of His Excellency or not, the Award of Innovative to the Chief Minister of Nagaland was a proof of his appreciation of this new idea as he heard and saw with his own eyes. This is a matter of pride for all of us.
From now on, people both from within the country as well as from abroad will keep coming to the state of the author of the word Communitisation any time to see the success story and may try to emulate from us and take a message to go home.
It is our appeal to the concerned authority and the public to update the existing units worth visiting by others. The matter of our pride should not be artificial and also should not be concentrated only to the popular villages but to spread to the unreached. While doing that let us also not forget the model village that the President of India was made to visit to do that the cooperation of both the department and the villagers are indispensable. In this respect, it is obvious to invite the attention of the concerned authorities to safeguard the interest of our pride of having a model village name called Khuzama. This has become model village since the visit of then President of India Dr APJ Abdul Kalam. He paid his kind visit to the village and the Primary school. We continue to remain proud of our village as well as the Primary School which came up in the International scenario due to the Presidential visit on 26th October 2002. It was possible probably because of the fact that the village and the Primary school both were selected as model village and institution respectively fit for the President’s visit. We must remind ourselves that the same zeal and enthusiasm of having model village and institution as Khuzama must continue to be promoted. For this, let us not forget the model village is in need of the following requirements in order to remain model village to be followed by others in our community. We, therefore honestly request the concerned authorities to pay their kind attention to fulfill the genuine requirements of the village.
1. Safe drinking water
2. Teaching aids
3. Repair of school building
4. Providing of furniture
5. Electrification of the school
6. Proper sanitation
