Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma emphasized the significant impact individuals can have on society through their contributions to the socio-cultural and academic landscape. Speaking at a career counselling session with students at Sertalin Auditorium Hall in Karbi Anglong district, CM Sarma highlighted that the students’ contributions would shape their identity and be remembered by future generations.
Drawing inspiration from President Droupadi Murmu, who rose to the highest constitutional post in the country from an interior place in Odisha, Sarma underscored the importance of dedication, determination, and love for the people in achieving one’s goals. He informed the students about the President’s upcoming visit to Diphu on January 17, providing them with an opportunity to meet her.
Sarma encouraged the students to reflect on their purpose in life and to listen to their inner selves to realize their worth. He acknowledged the impact of influential figures like Swami Vivekananda and Mahatma Gandhi, emphasizing that only a few individuals leave lasting imprints on people’s minds.
Highlighting the role of parental blessings in achieving greatness, Himanta Biswa Sarma emphasized the importance of involving oneself in fulfilling the aspirations of parents.

Touching upon the indispensable role of technology, the chief minister advised students to embrace and master technologies like AI and machine learning based on their priorities. He stressed the need for empowerment in learning and applying new and modern technologies.
Acknowledging the beauty of Karbi Anglong district, Sarma urged students to be conscious and committed to preserving its natural resources.
