Gaurav Gill - a name synonymous with rugged world of car rallying
ITANAGAR, Jan 19: As it was said earlier in this daily, Gaurav Gill, Asia-Pacific
Rally Champion and best rally driver of the country, is one among the top rally drivers
who are participating in the two days J K Tyre car rally at Dirang on February
1 and 2.
Gaurav Gill’s name is synonymous with the rugged world of car rallying. And his triumph
in the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship (APRC), last month, has put him on a higher
pedestal. Gill, who turned 32 some time back, became the first Indian to win the
championship from India.
This Delhi boy started his motorsport career, rallying on 2 wheels in the Indian
National Rally Championship. He is currently India's leading rally driver. He is
a past winner of India's National Rally Championship, National Road Racing Championship
and FIA APRC Rally Indonesia in 2008 as well.
Born on 2 December 1981, Gaurav got into motorsport at a very early age. He started
racing motorbikes in the National Motocross Championship in 1999. He won his debut
event at Cochin.
Encouraged by his uncle, Dicky Gill, Gaurav was soon showing astounding adaptability
as he moved to 4-wheels and was soon winning national car rallies, karting championships
and endurance races, he even signed up for the Raid-de-Himalaya in 2000. He won a
few national racing titles while he was with JK Tyres and MRF Tyres racing teams.

Championship (APRC) 2010 season

He says, "the APRC win is just the beginning. The win has helped me get recognition
in Europe and I hope I get a chance to compete in the European Rally Championship.
I’m talking to Skoda officials and will also try to convince MRF to register for
the World Rallying Championship.”
Although with his talent and wins, it was expected that Gill would have won the world
rally Championship earlier. But the recent victory has given him renewed hope and
He believes a rally driver reaches hi peak at 29. Gill emphasized that rallying is
more challenging than racing, adding that for today’s youngsters, racing is more
of a fashion thing rather than passion.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Nyage Geyi, DMO, Seppa spoke in length about the various
maladies of unclean water, which he termed as vector borne diseases or simply water
borne diseases. He mentioned that apart from cholera, diarrhoea, typhoid fever, polio
is also sometimes water borne. He said that drinking boiled water is the safest way
to prevent vector borne diseases. He strongly advised villagers to stop the practice
of open defecation as it is the root cause of many diseases. He told that pigs should
be reared in clean closed enclosures as mosquito which cause Japanese encephalitis
(JE) breeds in unhygienic condition along with pigs.
In his closing remarks, Dr. Geyi said that instances of goitre are found now a days
due to adulteration in market salts. He told that he will provide some “Iodised Test
Kit” for testing iodine contents in salts.
Sunil Nabam, ex-ASM chairperson lauded PHED for imparting awareness and training
to villagers at their door step. Quoting old saying “prevention is better than cure”
he appealed to villagers not to pollute water sources and rivers by dumping animal
carcass. He also appealed villagers to dispose of plastic items carefully as they
are non-biodegradable and pose health hazards.

not to let them roam freely. Er. Tung Sono, AE PHED Seppa, told villagers to avoid

to use FTK cautiously and to keep it away from children as its chemicals and reagents
may be dangerous to them.
Nurses mourn death of patient, appeals for calm
ITANAGAR, Jan 19: All Trained Nurses' Association of India, Arunachal Pradesh State
Branch deeply mourned the death of a patient at Arunachal State Hospital, Naharlagun
on January 8 and expressed deepest sympathy to her family members. “The vacuum so
created can never be filled again. We can feel all the pain, the trauma, the sense
of hollowness they must be having at this point of time,” the Association said in
Admitting that it is natural to be doubtful and questionable if a patient, who is
healthy and stout, dies in a mysterious circumstance, the Association has appealed
to the family members of the deceased and well wishers and organizations to have
patience. “Let the authorities do its job properly without creating any undue pressure
to ensure free and fair justice. It would be more maturely and widely appreciative
if they demand for the prompt investigation of the incidence instead of demanding
for arrest of the alleged accused,” the Association said.
“We must believe in our judiciary. The process of inquiry into the incidence is put
on fast track. If the allegation is proved the persons responsible will be punished.”
“We must not forget that sometimes there happen to occur the co-incidental death
of apparently healthy looking person (that is one who looks healthy from outside)
dies of a heart attack or some other diseases during the course of treatment for
different ailment or disease,” it said.
The Association further said that it is a very serious question to be pondered about
that if demand is made for arrest of a nurse who injects a medicine which has been
prescribed by a doctor. Then nurses will also have to demand for video injection
or video recording of injection and will have to seek undertaking/concern from patient's
relatives for injecting a medicine in future to avoid such accusations. Now there
is a fear psychosis and a sense of insecurity among the nursing fraternity to give
medicines to patients even if they are prescribed by the competent doctors, the Association
“We selflessly do our duties even at the time of agitations/strikes at the cost of
our own lives. But sadly people never say a word of appreciation when we do good
jobs and save thousands of lives but when one in a million dies we are blamed for
the death without any logical reasons,” the Association rued.
The association concludes that if alleged nurse and doctor are arrested under pressure
without proper investigation this will send a wrong message to the people of the
Specify site for public assembly before issuing any ban order: PPA
ITANAGAR, Jan 19: Criticizing the Capital Complex Deputy Commissioner Sanjay Goyal
for issuing a ban order against staging of dharnas and demonstrations in the premises
of Raj Bhavan, CM’s office secretariat etc by political parties, NGOs, students organization
etc, PPA vice president Toko Sheetal termed the order as ill conceived and bereft
of sound logic.
“Goyal should have atleast suggested the Govt. to identify a proper site for holding
of dharnas and demonstrations as is available at national capital as well as in all
the state capitals before issuing such an order at the behest of the ruling Govt.
He should also know that people do not resort to dharnas to get fun or to pass their
time. It is resorted to, only when all constitutionally available means are exhausted
and the Govt. fails to deliver justice to its own citizens.”
Demanding an unconditional apology and revocation of the order from Goyal, the PPA
leader stated that the non compliance to the desires of the aggrieved citizens, the
party will be duty bound to stage such dharnas in the office or residence premises
of the DC.
“The malafide intention of the Deputy Commissioner is amply clear by the urgency
and hastiness with which the impugned order was issued right after a day of the massive
public protest lodged by PPA leadership,” the PPA vice president said.

The bizarre accident which took place at Naharlagun yesterday involving group of
teenager and government vehicle has once again exposed all the wrong things going
in our society. Fortunately no life was lost in the accident but few received grievous
injury. As per report, a Tata Sumo belonging to home department driven by underage
boy rammed into bike on National Highway-52 A near National Cinema Hall, Naharlagun.
According to the eye witnesses, he was accompanied by group of friends and all look
drunk at the time of incident. Angry mob damaged the vehicle and tried to set it
ablaze but police intervened and controlled the mob.
The whole incident shows total carelessness on the part of home department official
whom Tata Sumo was allotted. The government should take proper action against the
officials for his act of negligence. Government department often complains about
lack of vehicles for mobilization of the work force. However, if officer’s handover
the keys of govt. vehicle to their under age children instead of using it for official
purpose, then which government will be ready to provide the vehicles. The police
department should down crack heavily on under-age drivers who not only risks their
own life but others too.

Circle, I welcome the efforts of Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, MPs Mukut Mithi, Takam
Sanjay, and MLAs Takam Pario, Bamang Flex for taking pain to visit Tali area for
two times in the last two years. They visited to know the ground reality of the area.
Everybody asks why people of Tali Constituency are migrating to different place like
Daporijo, Ziro and Capital. Simple reason is that there are no proper road connectivity,
no proper health care facilities and lack of education opportunity.
Being simple and straight forward in nature people of Pipsorang will always remember
the valuable suggestion given by Chief Minister Nabam Tuki. Moreover, we waiting
to see him fulfilling following commitment made during his recent visit to Tali-
1. Chief Minister directed Deputy Commissioner to make arrangement for distribution
of coat to Gaon Burahs in the coming republic day celebration.
2. Chief Minister announced blankets for all permanently residing households of
3. Chief Minister assured that under the National Food Security Act, sufficient
food grains at the fixed subsidized rates will be made available to the people of
this remote region immediately.
