Tribute to Lalzoliana

A TRIBUTE TO LALZOLIANA


(October 12, 1990 – September 3, 2020)

Our beloved friend Lalzoliana, a student of B.D. IV, unfortunately met with an electric shock on 26th August, 2020 at 5 P.M. While we expected him to recover soon and while we were earnestly praying for him, he rather went to be with the Lord on 3rd September, 2020 at 3 PM.

The A.I.C.S family is very much saddened by the fact that such a horrifying misfortune, which we never thought and expect even in our dream, happened to our beloved member. It stunned us, frightened us, terrified us, and we do not know how to cope with it.

Lalzoliana has been a good and promising student, very bright, friendly, innocent, gentle, well self-disciplined, diligent, jovial, and adorable, one who demonstrated a candid life. We could not understand why A.I.C.S lost such a precious student.
Human mind, in fact, could not comprehend what had happened to him. We do believe, however, that the God of love would have held him dearly at His bosom now, and explained to him all the things that had happened to him; and then he would be peacefully resting now at the side of the loving God.

A.I.C.S will remember Lalzoliana. All the good things which he exemplified in his life will be mentioned again and again along with his name in the days to come.

When he almost had finished his preparation to become a good minister of God, and when we did feel that it’s not yet the right time, he but answered the higher call from heaven. We do share the sorrow of his mother, his siblings and his relatives from the bottom of our hearts. It is our prayer that the good Lord would always abide with them giving them peace and comfort from above.

PRINCIPAL’S LETTER TO THE STUDENTS

31.07.2020

To

            All the students of AICS, 2020-2021 academic sessions

Subject: Reminder to be sincere in Online class for 2020-2021

            Greetings to you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I hope that all of you are keeping well with your family members. 

            The Faculty Council meeting held on 29th July 2020 listened to the reports about the ongoing online classes from faculty members, and we had discussion in the related matters. I would like to inform you the following important matters. I would like to ask you to take all the important information seriously. 

            1.  Be sincere in online class: While most of the students are very sincere in online classes, some students, especially among first year students, are not serious in the online classes.

            Therefore, this is a reminder to all the students that we are in the academic session now, and you are not supposed to be engaged in any other work. Be sincere in the classes and try to do your level best in your study.

            2.  Payment of fees: Students who are not supported by the BCM are hereby informed to pay your fees. You don’t need to pay mess fee, electricity and water charges. You have to pay the rest of the fees. You are expected to pay at least 50% of your fee during the first semester, ideally at the beginning of the academic session.

            3.  Online exam for continuing students: The second semester exam for 2019-2020 academic sessions has been conducted by the Senate and college online during 20-31st July, 2020. The pending exam for the continuing students is likely to be conducted from August 17, 2020 by the Senate of Serampore College. Be prepared for this. Information will be given to you as soon as we receive it from the Senate of Serampore College.

            Visit Senate of Serampore College website (www.senateofseramporecollege.edu.in) time to time for new information.

            We are praying for you.

PRINCIPAL’S REPORT FOR 2019-2020

I am very happy that I could give my first Annual Report as the principal of AICS. I took over the charge of Principal on 25th April, 2019 at 9PM from Rev. Prof. R. Zolawma. I do acknowledge that all things come from God, and at the same time I express my sincere gratitude to the Nomination Committee, Baptist Church of Mizoram, for putting their trust upon me to take up this important responsibility in spite of all my limitations.

            There are two important things guiding me in discharging my responsibility as Principal of AICS. 1) I accept that it is God who put me in this important place. Therefore, looking to Jesus, I must do my best to fulfil my duties. 2) I may not have any special talent for my job. However, I will try my best to be impartial, to be free from corruption, and to be honest.

            As I have completed my first year as the Principal of this institution, I sincerely express my deep gratitude to my faculty colleagues, staff members and students for their great support, understanding, forbearance and for their contributions in different areas in different ways. I also sincerely thank members of the Board of Theologica Education, and especially our General Secretary and Executive Secretary, Aizawl, who are my human shield and support for all my works as in charge of this institution.

1.  Re-opening of the College: While the college was re-opened on 12th June, 2019, with students the beginning of the academic sessions of 2019-2020 might be dated back to 25th April, 2019 in which the new Principal took over the charge in the meeting of Board of Theological Education.
