Cachar girl to exhibit innovative model at NCSC

SILCHAR, Dec 8: Where there is a will there is a way! If you have strong will power, confidence and ability to do the targeted job, nothing is impossible. This has once been proved by Rusthina Suchiang, hailing from Dolu, a remote village of Cachar district, who has been selected for the national level competition of 20th National Children Science Congress (NCSC), being held from December 27 toDecember 31 at Benaras Hindu University, for her model on 'Develop dheki, using less human energy'.
Rusthina, a class X student of Srawasati Vidya Niketan, is the sole participant from South Assam and one among the 25 students who will represent Assam in the national level congress.
Addressing a press meet held here this evening, Satya Bushan Paul, formerhead of the department ofChemistry of Assam University, who is also the president of Cachar district unit of NCSC, expressed his happiness on the selection of Rusthina in national level and said that her achievement would motivate the other students of the districts inthe future.
Paul, however, expressed his concern at the aversion of urban students in the science exhibition as the number of participants in the district level contest of Science Congress has beendeclining with each passing year. "This year, out of 172 schools, who have participated in the district level science congress, only 57 participants were from urban schools and rests were from rural schools," he pointed out.
Pradip Kumar Banik, president, Science Trial Organization, said that the aim behind organizing such competition is to develop scientific temperament ofthe students. STO has been organizing the NCSC's district level event in Cachar for the last few years.
Talking to the mediapersons, Rusthina Suchiang expressed her gratitude to all the teachers and her guide, Rakhi Deb, a student of Bengali department of Assam University for being selected in the finallevel of the congress. Her model is based on dheki, a traditional wooden device for separating husk from the grains. "Energy: Explore, Harness and Conserve" is the theme for this edition of NCSC.
Apratim Nag, a lecturer in Physics, Gurucharan College, who is the Cachardistrict academic co-ordinator of NCSC, said that the NCSC, established in 1993, provides the young students of 10 to 17 years from all over the country an opportunity touse their scientific temperament and knowledge to make their dreams come true. He appealed to the students to participate in such competition in the future ahead. Nag further congratulated Rusthina and wished her all the best for the national event. (SentinelAssam)
