In his speech, the Chief Guest Dr Marcelo Farfan spoke of networking among institutions of Higher Education. ''We cannot work in isolation or be satisfied only with my college or centre of higher studies. We need to collaborate and work together with other institutions of the world so as to have far reaching goals and able to serve better the students of our centres,'' he said. He added that the problem of higher education in any part of the globe is the same. Don Bosco Higher Education can play important role in helping students to become nation builders and transformers of society.

Dr Jose Kuruvachira, Provincial of Dimapur welcomed the delegates to the Northeast and in particular to the Province of Dimapur. He wished that the conference deliberate upon important points to bring about changes in society. He added that the theme of the conference is apt as we see that the constitution of the country is in a brink of being controlled by the government for its own gain and petty ideology. ''We need to safeguard our freedom and integrity. Colleges and centres of higher learning should strongly imbibe in the students' mind the love and knowledge of the constitution,'' he said.

Dr Maria Soosai, Secretary DBHEI in his introductory note spoke about The Preamble to the Constitution declares the State to be 'Secular' and this is a special relevance for the Religious Minorities.  Article 30 of the Indian Constitution states that, ''(1) All minorities, whether based on religion or language, shall have the right to establish and administer educational institutions of their choice. This needs to be safeguarded.

On the same note Dr Maria Charles, Vice President DBHEI presented the need to come together to discuss certain issues affecting higher education in India. He highlighted the needs of the 21st Century in higher education.

Soon after the inauguration, papers were presented on the theme of the conference. Ms G A Bidyalaxmi Devi, Asst.

Professor Political Psychology, St. Joseph University, Dimapur presented a paper on ''The Structure of the Indian Constitution.''
