Addressing the programme, the Chief Guest extended his warm wishes to the participating students, referring to them as “Rising Stars”. He emphasized that the tournament was not merely an occasion for competitive matches and prize distribution, but rather a platform for identifying and nurturing budding talents. Drawing inspiration from Mizoram’s successful “Catch Them Young” program, he highlighted how young athletes could pursue a fulfilling career in sports through proper coaching and guidance. He expressed his hope that the Inter-School Football Tournament could also serve this purpose by fostering talent at the grassroots level, thereby producing district, state, and national-level players.

Touching on the significance of timely action and effective resource utilization, he emphasized the importance of making the right decisions at the right time. He exemplified this point with an anecdote about the congested road, crowded with vendors and market-goers that was nearly impassable for vehicles due to the absence of adequate marketplace shelter which he encountered on his way to the playground. Reflecting on past missed opportunities, he lamented the ineffective utilization of sanctioned amount of Rs.54 lakh for the extension of the bazar shed building during the year 2015-2016, leading to the existing chaotic scenario. He stressed on the value of proper implementation in realizing positive outcomes, citing the successful organization of the football tournament was made possible due to the meaningful utilization of the funds allocated for the construction of the Astro-turf facility at Kamalanagar.

Addressing the young students, the Chief Guest conveyed his vision of witnessing not only talented football players but also accomplished orators, musicians, dancers, actors, and more emerging from their ranks to illuminate the society. He encouraged them to stay determined and focused in their pursuit of education and sports. He envisioned each participant as a potential “Rising Star” who would contribute positively to the society.
