Followings are the few opinions given by SEA members at the seminar on 28-12-2002:

1) We need a strong economy for up-liftment of intellectuals of rural and to encourage them to reach the top post in India. We can be helpful in funding them and give them the thrust for higher education through supply of study materials and tuition etc as a help of non government organization.
2) There is a need to improve our literature. To establish ourselves as the symbol of the Santal society it is mandatory to uplift the AL CHIKI, the DHARAM, the CULTURE and the TRADITION of Santal. Two ways out of thousands to improve are by organizing annual get-together like this and publishing the awareness journals (Monthly, half yearly or yearly).
3) Completeness of job in context of society improvement cannot be achieved single handedly. It requires unity and togetherness.
4) Use of web sites and e-media are modern days necessity to improve awareness among us and thus improve the society.
5) Socio, Education and Culture can be made stronger by knowing the use of a penny. Besides this let us make an attempt to give the monetary help to the intelligent graduate to prepare civil services with a hope of creating top official from our society. It is sure that the noble deed will always be appreciated and awarded.
6) Let 's adapt each of us one school in our own locality to render the maximum help to the society in the field of education.
7) There is nothing remarkable milestone we the SEAans have left behind since 1992. Let us re-unite and work for the same.
8) SEA is the most intellectual group of Santals and each & every engineer is the example of the society.
9) We should give maximum efforts towards thrust of the society in zonal or chapter wise.
10) It is heartening to note the change of religion of SANTALS. Let us create the awareness and save our original religion.
11) Sincere hardwork with a goal of an ant is appreciable. Let us learn a lesson from this and utilize the same towards our society.
12) For registration of SEA in Orissa, some problems are being faced. We may require help of engineering students in this regard.
