Book Review: Dare To Dream by Stephen Touthang


Dare to Dream written by Stephen Touthang is a power-packed hand book for achieving your dreams. The book is the product of a well-researched effort. It is divided into topic-wise and therefore this makes it easy for you to locate a particular topic of your choice. It gives guidelines to build dreams, understanding the pros and cons of making the journey towards your dreams, restructuring your attitude and acting upon your dreams. The varied quotes of great men and women, the illustrations, the well-selected poems and the wide-ranged life stories of Dreamers and Achievers of all walks of life are truly inspiring and motivating.


We, sometimes are afraid to dream for fear that we will not be able to achieve. Such is our cowardice, afraid of failure, and that too, even before attempting it! When you browse through the book, you will feel your pulse pacing fast. You feel charged. You will mutter to yourself, ‘Yes that’s true! Yes, that’s it!! Yes, how right! That was exactly how I felt!
As I got hold of this book and flipped through the pages, I felt triggered with Edgar A. Guest’s Poem, It Couldn’t Be Done, which he mentioned in page no. 189. I quote below few lines:
“Somebody said it couldn’t be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That ‘maybe it couldn’t,’ but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he is worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it”
Nothing is impossible if we only try. Let us start. Let us dare. Let us start to dare to dream.
The book Dare to Dream is a must read. This book will lead you far in reaching for your stars.


The book Dare to Dream is written by Stephen Touthang, M.A. (Eng), MA (Sociology), M.Ed. and NET (UGC), who is a Catholic priest working in the Archdiocese of Imphal, Manipur. He is a budding writer, who is interested particularly in the welfare of young people and has been addressing them on diverse topics. His published books are Substance Abuse and The Illuminate and the Music Industry which deal directly with the current problems. He also authored a book called Career Planning Resources. Currently he is doing his Ph.D.

Speech on Air Pollution during WED 2019

Speech on Air Pollution during WED 2019

Good afternoon my dear students… Thank you.

Respected Mohan Bhattacharya, Vice Chancellor Mahatma Gandhi University, Dr. Saikia, Registrar of the University, my colleague Ambiga and her husband who came all the way from Shillong to be with us in this programme, Respected Professors, Teachers and My dear Students!

I am glad to be here with you on the occasion of World Environment Day. The day when we show respect to our mother Earth.

If we look around us we see the plants, animals, air, water etc. This is where we all live that we call the Environment. The environment plays a crucial part in our lives. We get food, water, air from the environment. In fact, environment is what sustains us. It means that quality of our life totally depends on our environment.

We need food to live. We eat twice or thrice a day but we need air every seconds to not just LIVE but survive. United Nations realised the importance of our Environment and has declared June 5 as World Environment Day and started celebration since 1973 using various theme. This year the theme is Air Pollution. We know that air pollution is very serious. It is the cause of all illness, climate change etc. Latest information in Today’s newspaper The Assam Tribute reported that about 1 lakh babies below 5 years die every year due to Air pollution. Need of the hour is to reduce air pollution.

The most effective way we can contribute towards reducing air pollution is-grow more trees. Where? in our surroundings. In our environment wherever we find an empty piece of land. Trees gives us clean oxygen which is the air we need to survive. One tree can feed oxygen to four persons. But number of Tree per person in India is one of the lowest in the world; Imagine 28 persons sharing just one tree. That shows the number of tree is very less. Much much less than what is needed; Four persons One tree.

Each one of us must plant tree and look after them. This year our Hon’ble Chief Minister launched One Citizen One Tree campaign. We should plant trees. It is our duty and responsibility to make our Mother Earth a cleaner and better place to live for ourselves as well as for our children and the next generations.

In conclusion, let us take a pledge to build a sustainable environment. Let us take a pledge to do our bit to reduce Air pollution. We are the guardian of this environment for our future generations.

Thank You.
