Peace parleys, economic blockade continue in Tirap
KHONSA, Aug 23: Hectic peace parleys are going on at all levels in Tirap district
to restore normalcy in disturbed Charaipung, Kamku-Russa and Hasse-Russa in Kanubari
circle in spite of indefinite economic blockade imposed by Assam. Tirap DC and SP
are personally monitoring the situation. They are holding parleys with their counterparts
to restore peace.
In order to check fresh violence a joint patrolling by Assam and Arunachal police
is being carried out in the affected area. No fresh violence has been reported and
uneasy calm prevails in the area. However, the economic blockade has affected the
flow of essential commodities and other materials from Assam on Bimlapur Road, Kherbari
road and on Joypur-Khonsa road. But situation is not alarming in Tirap so far as
food stock is concerned.
When contacted, DF&CSO, Amit Bengia has informed that there is sufficient stock of
foodgrains, enough to last for more than a month. He however, told that fuel and
re-filled LPG cylinders crisis may be there if the blockade continued and has instructed
all the retail fuel outlets of Tirap district to maintain strict rationing while
issuing items to the consumers, reports DIPRO.
The student organizations are also doing their bit to restore the much-needed normalcy
in Kanubari circle. AAPSU is watching the development in the trouble-torn Kanubari
area closely. In the meantime All Tirap Students’ Union members will visit the affected
people with essential items like medicines and salt etc on 24th August 2010.
Meanwhile, EAC Khonsa said that the news of ultimatum issued to the Assamese, as
reported by some electronic media from Assam to quit Tirap is malicious, unfounded,
baseless and just a figment of imagination. The electronic and print media should
be responsible enough to report only the facts and nothing else, he said.
Meanwhile, the Launu Circle People’s Forum strongly urged the state government to
recommend a thorough enquiry, preferably by CBI, into allegations against the people
of Rusa villages of conniving with the NSCN (IM) and their alleged involvement in
the attacks on the people of Assam, Assam police and the SP of Sivasagar.
Since this is a serious allegation that was primarily responsible for the stand off
between two neighbouring states, we feel it would be prudent on the part of both
the states to recommend a CBI enquiry so that the truth is unveiled. In order to
ensure that the whole nation particularly the two NE states are not misled and government
machineries are not befooled and misguided by a few vested interests holding responsible
positions in the government, it is highly desirable that those responsible for bringing
the two, otherwise friendly, states to the brink of virtually waging a war should
be booked, it added.
Apang to appear before SIC, questions motive
ITANAGAR, Aug 23: Former Chief Minister Gegong Apang would appear before the special
investigation cell (SIC) on Tuesday in connection with the Rs 1,000 crore PDS scam
in the state for which a PIL (No 50/2004) is in Gauhati High Court.
The Former Chief Minister had appeared before it on Friday.
Meanwhile the former Chief Minister has questioned the working of SIC which he alleges
kept him waiting for two hours.
In a press statement, the former Chief Minister said that after summoning him at
10 AM on Friday, SP SIC M.S. Chauhan was not in his office.
“When the SP did not turn up even after waiting for two hours, his subordinates gave
me a questionnaire consisting of sixty four questions and suggested that I return
home with the questionnaire since I had to refresh my memory and cross check some
of the facts” he said.
However the same day another summon reached the former chief minister at around 6.40
pm in which the S.P allegedly accused the former Chief Minister of not willfully
cooperating in the process of investigation and refusing to answer any of the 64
questions served in the detailed questionnaire.
The entire functioning of SIC and the manner in which Chauhan is conducting himself
appear to be politically motivated, the former chief minister said.
Meanwhile the leader has questioned the validity of reports filed by the sections
of the media in which they alleged him of non cooperation. He termed those reports
as biased, one sided, partisan and malicious while adding that facts ought to have
been verified. He further said that media should not allow itself to be used for
AAPSU saddened by decaying Ering cenotaph
ITANAGAR, Aug 23: Numerous visionary leaders of the state have worked tirelessly
to make Arunachal a better place to live. Among all, Daying Ering is considered to
be the pioneer leader of Arunachal whose contribution to development of state is
incomparable. However with passing years people of this state seem to have forgotten
his contribution and memories of late Daying Ering is dying a slow natural death.

cenotaph of late Daying Ering at Pasighat town, expressed sorrow at the poor upkeep.
“Late D Ering is the most respected leader of Arunachal. He has immensely contributed
to the development of Arunachal. But seeing the poor condition of his memorial, it
makes us to believe that government and citizens of this state has forgotten his
contribution,” said Takam Tatung.
He further demanded that state govt declare Daying Ering Memorial as state asset
and deploy workers to maintain it throughout the year. “This memorial if properly
maintained can be developed into major tourist attraction. State government need
to walk extra mile and show respect to visionary leaders like Daying Ering by at
least maintaining their memorials properly,” said Tatung.

Raksha Bandhan: The Bond of Protection
Dr. Jayadeba Sahoo,
India is a spiritual oriented country and is one of the richest nations in respect
of cultural and spiritual perspective. The festivals of this land form the most important
link that sustains its cultural heritage. The number of festivals celebrated here
is hardly comparable to festivals celebrated by other countries. Twelve months in
a year is filled with thirteen big festivals. 'Raksha Bandhan' has a special importance
among them. The cycle of time keeps rotating but its memories remains. To freshen
these memories, memorials are made, stories are written, birth days are observed,
in which self respects, love, true feelings are imbibed. Unfortunately, a day comes
when respects & love ceases and rituals remain. It would not be exaggeration to say
that festivals now-a-days are being celebrated to just continue the tradition.
'Raksha Bandhan' had been reduced to an annual ritual hardly reflecting its true
significance. Sisters apply a sacred red mark - 'Tilak' on the centre of the fore
head of their brothers, tie Rakhi considered to be a sacred thread on their right
wrist, besides offering them some sweets as token of their love & affection for them.
The brothers in turn give them some gifts and money.
Now what is the esoteric meaning of this ritual?
It is commonly believed that a sister ties "Rakhi" round the brothers' wrist so as
to bind him in an obligation and renew his pledge to support and protect her in time
of need. This could not really be the object of this ceremony. There are several
reasons for this. It is worth considering that if a sister ties Rakhi with the object
of getting the brothers protection at the time of distress, then a fully grown-up
and strongly built sister tying Rakhi to a brother of tender age is meaningless.
More over, before marriage it is the legitimate duty of parents to protect the girl
and after marriage of sister, her protection becomes the responsibility of her husband.
Again it is meaningless in tying Rakhi to a brother who is leaving so for away and
sister knows that he cannot reach and give her any help or physical protection in
time. It is thus obvious that the significance of this festival is different from
what is said to be.
Further, from times immemorial, until a few decades ago, it was customary practice
for the family priests to tie Rakhi and apply "Tilak" to each and every person of
the family. The priest also tied the sacred thread to the doors, windows of the'
house and newly purchased household. A Tilak like sacred mark was also put on those
items. The scriptural story says that when Indrani and Yumuna tied rakhi to their
brothers- Indra and Yama respectively, it had brought Indra and Yama a memorable
victory" over demons or devils.
Raksha Bandhan is also variously known as 'Vish-torak' (destroyer of Venomousness
or vice- eliminating) Parva (festival), "Pap- Nashak" (destroyer of sin) and Punya-
Pradaayak (bestower of boons) Parva.
Again "Raksha Bandhan " is celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu calendar
month of Shravana (August) when on each Monday of it devotees travel long distances
to pour water on the ‘Shivalinga’ -the stone image of Incorporeal God - Supreme Being
of light after which comes Raksha Bandhan.
The above details suggest wider and deeper socio-spiritual significance, linked with
Shiva-Papakateswar (Redeemer of Sins) -God. These expressive or symbolic names indicate
to the unmatched bond of vice less and pure love between a brother and sister reminding
all thereby to maintain vice less virtuous life.
In the light of this spiritual meaning Raksha Bandhan can be said to be a universal
festival because it is not related to any particular religion, but it is related
to universal human values. Its relevance for human welfare has not diminished; rather
it has increased in today’s situation as every individual today is under constant
threat of the vices of lust, ego, greed, anger and attachment.
The pure love between brother and sister is acclaimed the world over. The customs
and conventions of India, in fact engross a very deep philosophy. The pure love
between brothers and sisters as glorified by Rakhi festival is symbolic of a great
cultural tradition. The magic effect of the words – ‘Dear Brothers and Sisters’
with which Swami Vivekananda addressed the World Conference on Religion at Geneva
has been so dramatic that the gathering felt instantly a unique kind of spirituality,
goodwill and closeness that helped to overcome all kinds of differences. These words
thus hoisted the flag of Indian culture so high in front of the world congregation
of different religions.
Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University (BKWSU)- an Institute of Universal Peace
& Culture celebrates 'Raksha Bandhan' with this connotation as revealed by lncorporeal
Being of Light (Jyotirlingam) Supreme Soul God-the world Benefactor Shiva) by descending
onto the corporeal medium of Prajapita Brahma (the founding father of BKWSU) at this
time of complete degeneration of values.
Brahma Kumaris and Kumars (the spiritual children of Prajapita Brahma) as non- violent
spiritual ambassadors carries and conveys to all brother souls this divine message
of achieving victory over vices i.e. lust, anger, greed attachment and ego - the
real enemy of mankind by - strict observance of continence through soul consciousness
considering all fellow beings as brother souls under the Fatherhood of the Universal
God incorporeal. This makes the mankind as a one family with feelings of universal
brotherhood. So the Brahma Kumaris Sisters ties Rakhi to all irrespective of religion,
race and gender and appeal one and all to donate not in gross, kind and cash but
from one's inner pocket (soul) those five great vices and negative addictions that
lie hidden there in - considered presumably as treasures at present- as mere trash
once and for all. This will usher in a Golden Aged "Value Based Better Society” of
third millennium and we can inherit it with this Spiritual empowerment. This is the
clarion call of Brahma Kumaris Institution on eve of Raksha Bandhan- the bondage
of protection, A Festival of Universal Brotherhood & Social Cohesion.
In conclusion, the main aspect of the festival of Raksha Bandhan is therefore connected
with the sacred vow of purity and a pledge to obtain and impart divine knowledge
and attributes. Its origin is the confluence age and the purpose is the purification
of all souls and transformation of the world.
So, let us all irrespective of different religious faith, celebrate this 'Raksha
Bandhan' and empower our self through process of Supreme Communion (Raja Yoga ) with
Him to inculcate His Supreme Commands of Universal Values to establish a “Value Based
Happy Society of Culture of Peace & Non Violence ” – our most cherished desire. The
understanding of this eternal truth will usher in religious harmony & world peace.
Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University has been engaged in this task for last
74years since its inception in 1936-37.
The true way of celebrating 'Raksha Bandhan' would be to realize the significance
of the present auspicious time ( Sangam Yuga, which is end of Kaliyuga – Iron Age
and the beginning of Satyuga – Golden Age ) and by pledging to discard all negative
traits such as anger, greed, ego and lust and by leading a life filled of love, compassion,
respect, humility, cooperation, responsibility, divinity.
On this auspicious occasion of Raksha Bandhan, August 24, 2010, take a moment for
deep spiritual introspection and free yourselves from the bondage of greed, the lust
for power and a slave of promiscuity and make God your eternal companion for true
peace, happiness and prosperity. (The writer is Head,Dept. of Education, Rajiv Gandhi
