�India has a large private school system complementing the government-run schools which give emphasis on personal development and career development and Holy Cross School, Silchar has also contributed towards the cause over the past five decades,� he said.
Additional Superintendent of Police Subhashini Sankaran, Cachar Inspector of Schools Kabil Uddin Ahmed and orthopedic surgeon and former student of the school, Dr Rajdeep Roy also spoke on the occasion.
