Silchar: In a proud moment for Assam, a 25-year-old youth of Barak Valley’s Karimganj district has been selected as a delegate at the Best Diplomats United Nations Simulation Conference to be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) from May 27-30.
Delegates from different countries across the globe will take part in the conference, which is being organised in collaboration with Best Diplomats, a New York-based United Nations Simulation Organiser.
Nripendra Das hails from Fakua, a village near Son Beel under Karimganj South assembly constituency. He had participated in an international summit on environment issues in Bali, Indonesia, in 2019.
He had completed a nationwide journey on a bicycle from December, 2020 to May, 2021 to spread the message of ‘Clean India Campaign’ and ‘Rape Free India’. During his tour, he visited several places including Shillong, Guwahati, Siliguri, Darjeeling, Sikkim, Kolkata, Mumbai, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Ahmedabad, Uttarkhand, Leh and Ladakh among others. He also met Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, who praised his initiative and assured to help him in his future endeavours of spreading awareness on important issues.
Talking to EastMojo on Sunday, an elated Nripendra said he was very happy for being selected as a delegate at the UN’s conference. “I had applied for it in January. I had uploaded all certificates of my academic qualifications and documents of my social activities. Persons who do/have done notable social work certified by a competent authority get selected. Also, the candidate should be at least a graduate for eligibility,” he said.
He said he feels the conference will be a great experience for him and he will get to learn new things that will help him in life ahead. “Delegates from all over the world will be there. Topics related to international relations, youth-centred issues, globalisation will be discussed and representatives from different countries will share their views and knowledge. It is going to be an enriching experience,” he said.
He said delegates from 190 nations will take part in the conference and only person per country has been selected, which means he is the only candidate from India to get selected. EastMojo, however, could not individually verify the authenticity of the statement.
Nripendra, who completed Bachelor of Fine Arts from Assam University in 2019 and is pursuing Bachelor of Social Work at North Eastern Hill University (NEHU), Shillong, wishes to work with a global organisation and inspire people in the future.
He completed his HSLC and HS from Fakuagram Higher Secondary School in 2014 and 2016, respectively. He has five other members in his family. His father Haribhakta Das is a farmer, while his mother Jyotsnarani Das is a homemaker. His sister is a student and his two brothers Ajit Kumar Das and Ratan Kumar Das are wage earners.
