Bhubaneswar, Apr 7:
An autobiography of Odisha Governor Dr SC Jamir was launched at Raj Bhawan in a function held here today.
During the launch of the book ‘A Naga’s Quest for Fulfilment’, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik congratulated Jamir on the occasion.
“I wish Dr. SC Jamir many more years of dedicated service to the motherland and wish his quest for fulfilment gets realised as Nagaland prospers and peace reigns supreme in his land,” Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik said.
Dr. Jamir is a well known and respected figure in the contemporary Indian politics. He is known as the architect of modern Nagaland. He has a distinguished career right from being the Parliamentary Secretary to former Prime Ministers Pandit Jawahar Lal Neheru and Lal Bahadur Shastri. The first MP from Nagaland, four times Chief Minister of Nagaland, Union Minister, former Governor of Goa, Maharastra and Gujurat and now as Governor of Odisha, Dr. Jamir has distinguished himself as a man of integrity and strong commitment having a long experience in the political landscape of India, he said.
Dr. Jamir’s book portrays a vivid account of the man and his times, and tells an absorbing narrative of his role in the formation of Nagaland. Dr. Jamir’s life deserves the detailed recounting. This book is a fascinating story of his life and experiences, his thinking about society and politics; his participation in many struggles and his contribution in different capacities and as Chief Minister where he carved out a distinct niche for himself, he expressed.
“In today’s world, we need the power of ideas more than ever. We need new thinking, a new narrative to tackle the new challenges. And one will feel the fragrance of idealism coming through the narratives of this autobiography. He has mentioned everything in his book in a very simple and lucid language that makes a pleasurable reading. I am sure the work of Dr. Jamir will continue to inspire generations for times to come,” Patnaik expressed.
