Thanpam Kasomhung son of Late P Tenyear, alias P K Stone and Maireila Kasomhung of Hunpung was recently selected as Manager at Tolaram Group, Headquarters Singapore and has been located as Area Sales Manager or Brand Manager FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) in Nigeria.
Born on 6 April 2000, Thanpam Kasomhung completed his MBA from IIM Ranchi (2021-23 batch). After a series of interviews, he was finally selected by the company through campus recruitment.
Speaking at the programme, Thanpam Kasomhung stated, “I have faced so many interviews in serach of a job, more than 20 interviews and I was selected finally by Tolaram Group. On September 7, 2007, my mom and dad passed away. At that time, I was only 7 years old. God answered our prayers, the persistent prayers from the family members, aunts and uncles and well-wishers were really answered. I urged the parents present here today to always pray for your sons and daughters. God is good and He always answered our prayer, I am the living witness. I also appeal to my brothers and sisters to never give up on your dream. There is no shortcut for success. Perseverance and hard work are the only roads to success.”
Recollecting his struggles days, Thanpam Kasomhung narrated, “after two days of technical, CV and case-based interview, I reached the HR round with eight others. It was tiring, torturous, and tense going through a process like this time and time over again, more so that I was a 22-year-old and fresher.”
“After going through the HR round, they asked me what motivated me? I answered, I lost both my parents at the age of 7, where my eldest brother was 19, my sister was 12, and a younger brother who was only 5 years old. We were left scattered and separated after their death. My eldest brother gave up his youth and found means by joining the military forces to support the family with his wife to regroup us all. My elder sister, as soon as her graduation was over, joined the service sector to give me and my younger brother the best education. They had to sacrifice their lives for the betterment of us. My sister-in-law never complained and met ends for the family, day in and day out. The thought of letting my brother come back home and live a life that of a father, with his children and his wife, and not be separated away is what motivates me each day. I really wish to be financially stable to let my family regroup and be together,” he said.
“Now that I have a Rs 67 lakh package, I will be in a position to look after our family and this is what motivates me every single day” added Thanpam Kasomhung who will be leaving for Nigeria on 28 May 2023.
Elders of Kasomhung clan from different villages of Tangkhul came and attended the felicitation programme and said a special prayer for Thanpam Kasomhung.
