Narrating the background story behind his success, Ruhiniballav Saikia told the gathering that if a person works hard by keeping a target, he would naturally succeed. The successful youth further opined that in order to achieve success, it needs a peaceful atmosphere in the family and a good educational atmosphere and a good environment. If a student intends to achieve his ambition, he needs to fully understand what his ambition is all about.

"If, luckily, I happen to get to work in the state, I would perform my duties sincerely and thoroughly to serve the people of the state and try to preserve its rich green heritage" Ruhiniballav Saikia vowed.

Ruhiniballav had an illustrious academic career. He passed his 12th standard from DPS, Numaligarh.

Ruhiniballav however expressed his concern over the lack of proper infrastructure in the state for preparing for National Level Competitive Exams. He added on that there is no dearth of talent in the state but due to shortcoming in facilities and exposure the talented youths of the state are not able to harness their worth.
