Kohima, April 1: The Naga Peoples Front (NPF) formally launched its party office
in Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh by forming Ad-
Launching the party in the two states in the Executive Committee meeting at the NPF Central Office here yesterday, Nagaland Chief Minister and NPF Adviser Neiphiu Rio said the party’s intention is not to create problem in other states, but to work for the Nagas who have been discriminated against and suppressed.
He said the decision to launch NPF in Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh was taken after a series of consultations and discussions with the people and leaders of the two states.
On the prospect of NPF particularly in Manipur due to the volatile situation, Rio said it would be too early to comment about the prospect but added that NPF would take up issues confronting Naga people there as it is a people's party.
The NPF will fight for the justice and see that it is delivered to them, and at the same time work for the unity and reconciliation of Naga people.
NPF president Shurhozelie Liezietsu informed in the meeting that he would soon write letters to political parties in these two states to recognise his party.

The Forum further said that move to enhance the age of superannuation from 58 years to 60 years for state government servants would be like playing with the destiny and career of growing unemployed youths of the state.

AALO, April 1: Tribal culture not only produces a distinct identity but enriches us with their wide range of custom, belief, faith and practices, observed Brigadier B.K. Pandey, Commander 5 Mountain Brigade Aalo while gracing the cultural competition as Chief Guest on the eve of Mopin Festival held at Gumin Kine on March 31 last.
For the Galos, there cannot be a better platform than Mopin to echo their ethos and hypes associated with the festival. The group dance competition on the theme of Mopin festival by more than twenty troupes was not only lively but gives us a deep insight into tribal music and folklores handed down from generation to generation. The Army gets the opportunity to know the tribal ways of life by virtue of their posting places in various parts of the country but hardly find time to share every movements of their rejoicings to be a friend of the hill people, he rued.
The Dignitaries also released the Mopin Souvenir and CD Album to mark the Occasion.
The Guest of Honour, S.K. Pandey, Commandant 44 BRTF Aalo had words of encouragement. He called upon the festive revelers to keep up the healthy tradition and promote tradition and moral values that bind the Galo Community.
The MLA Aalo East Jarkar Gamlin called for mass participation in such festivity to show unity and oneness among the members of the community.
The President CMCC, Emar Ete and Secretary Deba Loya also gave their Mopin greetings and appealed one and all for cooperation to make the event ahead a successful one. Hikar Gumin, Sipu Colony and Gaur Hill emerged first, 2nd and 3rd respectively in the Group Dance Competition. DIPRO
ITANAGAR, April 1: All Arunachal Pradesh Youth Organization (AAPYO) urged Home Department to constitute a special committee to investigate the Daporijo MMA scandal.
Describing that Daporijo incident has once again reflected the dark side of man in uniform, AAPYO said that the heinous crime committed by police, who are said to be the protector of law, deserve condemnation from all sections of the society.
It demanded the authorities concerned to arrest the main accused immediately and award him exemplary punishment as per the provision law or else the union would be compelled to resort to other democratic means such as bandh call in the coming days to let its voice reach the Government.
Lower Subansiri district unit of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) expressed surprised over delay in awarding punishment to the culprits even after getting solid evidence against them. It hoped that the authority would initiate action against all the accused without further delay and punish them to the satisfaction of all as per law.

The Galoos are one of the major tribes of TANII DESCENDENTS who migrated from Tibet long long ago after the death of ABO TANII, the first human being on earth as tradition says. Whatever the art and culture known today among the TANII DESCENDENTS, particularly the Galoos is coming down from the time of ABO TANII and from him only for the generations to come later on.
These days the culture of TANII group is seemed to be categorized into two as one being called ‘DOONYI POOLO CULTURE’, and the other ‘TERI JIMII CULTURE’. The first one is handled by today’s priestly group and the other is a culture in which the tradition depicts and tells ABO TANII as the only hero on the earth from his birth to his death.
The feelings and understandings about the things he found around him gave him some
ideas and senses. His quality whatever he had; his boldness by nature; his loss of
two supernatural eyes called ‘SAPRO’; blessings from ABII TAKII, the elder brother
for him for the loss of his SAPRO gave him the only first knowledge of education
in olden sense and some important experiences. His association with various types
of wild animals, birds and plants as wives on different times made him feel the necessity
of a conjugal life. His marriage with ANYI MUMSI (MUMII/MUMDII) the heavenly girl-
The feelings of confidence; superiority; and an attitude of enmity towards the monkeys
of that time had been very much successful in bringing about a character of recklessness
to ABO TANII and, to make the enmity lasting one. The tour to the land of TAKAR TAJO;
his dealings with the people of TAKAR TAJO-
The feelings, understandings, whatever knowledge acquired out of the events and experiences throughout his life ABO TANII told all those experiences to his children in the form of a set of instructions to be followed strictly, fairly and regularly by the generations to come later on. Those instructions have been handing over down and down to newer generations through ages and that is called the original culture or ‘TERI JIMII CULTURE’ which is still intact and free from pollution and modification. The ‘TERI JIMII’ is derived from the habits; practices; understandings; knowledge; and other activities of ABO TANII during his life time.
Practices include two types of activities such as ‘OBSERVANCE’ and ‘CELEBRATION’ which follows the change of seasons timely and meaningful in its real sense. In another way the observances and celebrations are known as festivals or DIGO BARJI and PODII BARJI. The change of seasons means the migration of season which explains the revolving action of the year, the month or time. So, DIGO BARJI and PODII BARJI are festivals along with which there are many other observances and celebrations like observance for newly constructed house; for new born child ; newly bought mithun or mithuns; for new couple; new agricultural cultivation; new harvest; marriage ceremony; to drive out famine from the locality—DIRI—and DOOGIN; PODII BARJI; MARII and MOOPIN.
DOOGIN, in its true sense, means migration—means change of season. PODII means father whose abode or station is supposed to be located somewhere else in the upward portion in the sky in the northern side in an imaginary region. So, PODII DOOGIN means the migration of father. Likewise, PODII BARJI means happy occasion of father. Both denote the happy occasion and the migration of father, PODII ABO. His migration takes place regularly once in a year for duration of two months—specifically, the months of October and November—as the name of the season is called ‘DIRAA’. The migration means visit or tour of PODII ABO to the land of TANII, which makes a complete seasonal coverage to all the parts of the earth—land and sea alike—and, after that he returns to his paradise—BARJI TAGII GE, GUUTE GAMRO GE GUMBE——an imaginary land of PODII ABO.
After the visit or migration of PODII ABO, the season changes and, it is the season of DIGO ANE—mother of crops. Keeping aside PODII DOGIN, PODII BARJI and DOOGIN all other occasions are named in the name of DIGO ANE who makes the whole of them into two more types of observances and celebrations—DIGO JETE and NYIINE JETE. To discuss about vegetation, new plantation, new cropping or agriculture, it’s all about DIGO ANE whose region or land is supposed to be somewhere in the lower portion of the land of TANII. All human being are quite aware of season and weather, time and tide since long back. For new crops and new vegetation we are greatly concerned about the change of season which our greatest attachment with DIGO ANE, Mother of crops. Every time she is available with usin accordance to seasons and she is in our association. Every bit of time has been witnessing a kind of observance or celebration in any form which may be called DIGO BARJI or DIGO JETE in any family or locality or community at least.
The main objective of celebrating MOOPIN means new vegetation, new cultivation which
requires the active participation and co-
There are two things to be remembered——DIGO MUUGO and PODII DOOGIN. Digo means DIGO
and MUUGO means wish or like to recollect, to remember one thing good already tested,
experienced, witnessed, and; wish to test or get the same again and again——means
DIGO ANE is wilfully in readiness to co-
Logically or myth logically DIGO MUUGO and PODII DOOGIN are same persons, seasons,
events or occasions who or which are wilfully keeping themselves in readiness to

We need leaders not politicians
I would like to thank all the people and all the organisations who have come forward in support of the victims of the MMS scandal. Being a resident of Daporijo and an Arunachali citizen, it is heartwarming to see all the support pouring in from all quarters. We need more and more of such activism from the people against all such atrocities and against all the illegal acts of the govt.
But the lackadaisical action of the concerned ministry is despicable and deserves condemnation from all. I don't understand as to what went wrong with this particular ministry or is it the bad luck of Mr. Dabi, the HM of the state, that during his regime we are witnessing all sorts of turbulence in the action of the police department and the department has further become turgid with the violation of every possible human rights and law. It has been rightly termed by the APPDSU as "a weak home ministry".
Further, it is really surprising to see the comments of the Minister during the assembly session, that was published in your daily, where the minister had claimed that "the govt. was trying for settlement of the feud between the NSCN factions at Tirap and Changlang". How ironic it is to know from our own Home Minister, that the govt. is acting as an agency for settling the differences between the groups instead of a strong will and action to wipe them out from state. Therefore it is no more surprising to see all sorts of illegalities being committed by the police when the minister himself is busy campaigning for elections in some other state, amidst all the hue and cries for the infamous MMS scandal.
Lets all come together and let all the politicians know that, we want leaders and not mere politicians".

Time for some answers
This is in appreciation to the letter written by one Nabam Simon published in your Daily on March 30. I truly appreciate his efforts in unearthing another shameful act of the state Govt. Hope he is making a concrete basis of it. But nevertheless, it is appalling, awful and simply disgracing to hear that political mischief are taking place with such a high resonance in the state. It is disturbing to hear that sponsoring of the student leaders for political mischief and vested interests have drawn the Govt. in awarding power projects and SPA Fund allocations to them. I wonder on what qualifications and prerogatives prompted the Govt. to award such projects to them? Was there any tendering of such important projects? For what specific purpose, the SPA funds were allocated to them? These are some of the questions that need to be answered. One can easily judge the future of the student community of the state where instead of harboring a just, disciplined and awakened “civil society” body; a few selfish political ambitions, vested interests and larger political influences are ruining the very existence of a true student body. One cannot simply blame the student body for such a demeaning trends in its politics that is taking place, instead larger and concrete questions have to be answered, as to why and how such changing trends have developed and who are harboring and sponsoring it?

Are we ready?
It is great to know that Govt. of Arunachal Pradesh has taken initiative to connect state with Computer Network lines. The need of computer network connectivity has indeed been a long requirement not only for working professionals but most importantly for people of tomorrow. In today's world, need of computer or computer knowledge is what need of education was in last couple of decades. It has become requirement rather than amenities or additional assets. The modern definition of literate doesn't complete without including word "computer knowledge" in it. Also, one need not be a computer graduate or professional to know how to operate/use computer. Computer is built by computer professional who are called computer engineer for the common people's convenience. It's time to make best use of technology which is called "one of the most beautiful invention" in human generation. As everything comes with price, we have to ponder about few points:
Does state government has adequate plan or resourceful person to implement this project called "ASWAN" ? Because, we are relatively new to this field and there are many loop holes to be addressed while connecting through computer especially connecting nodes with confidential or important documents in office or at home. It is disappointing to see lots of government confidential documents floating over Internet especially from Arunachal Pradesh. If one search appropriately using Internet, he will get virtually everything government has stored in computer. Please fence before seeds are sown in field.
People need to know dark side while using networked computer. If you are connected to Internet, you are connected to the world. The action you do, the content you keep, upload or download to/from Internet should be done with care. Simple trick is, learn to defence before begin attacking.
Student and young people should use Internet/computer with good purpose. It is said "one can use knife either for killing people or for cutting vegetable". It's true with Internet too. Use it for good, you have got the best way to the world or you have the world in your finger tips or you virtually have every resource for learning. Use it for wrong purpose, you are your own peril.
People, especially parents, attitude towards their kids taking computer professional education need to be more encouraging. We have this mental attitude that taking computer professional education means no work in our state or at best an operator. We fail to see the positive side that good education in this field is passport to the world. But having that, students taking this field for specialization need to know that "world has gone far ahead in this field with more concentrated of brains around the world. Matching up to them won't be an easy chase". This is what some of our former students could not realized I feel. But other guys like Honi Bayang still got through who also had a choice to come back to serve state.
Hoping the initiative is not just a papered one and/or the project doesn't land up in wrong hand, I extend my best wishes to govt and the people of Arunachal Pradesh for networked society.
Time for specializations
Apropos to news items of March 28 issue, captioned “Around 2000 illegal appointment in various Govt. dept. Unearthed” might have shocked everyone. In fact, the land of rising sun becomes the land of rising corruption at its early age. The persons in political domain seem busy in chasing material gain rather than to serve the people. Democracy is on decline. The value and ethics of politicians have submerged. Ganatantra (Republic) has become a Dhanatantra (Money Government) these days.
