threat of floods in a new age of extreme weather events, predicted the Head of the
UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR).
In the wake of recent flash flood fury in Uttarakhand, UNISDR has stressed on the
need for early warning systems and reduction of social vulnerability through land
use planning and leadership at local government level.
"India, Nepal, Canada and many countries in Europe have experienced huge losses over
the last two months due to intense precipitation events which have triggered extreme
flooding affecting millions of people's well-being and livelihoods, " UNISDR said.
According to UNISDR, flood management systems are a key to curb such catastrophes.
It emphasized on the need for early warning systems, reduction of social vulnerability
through land use planning and leadership at local government level.
UNISDR believes that floods are the single most widespread and increasing disaster
risk to urban settlements of all sizes. About 250 million people have been affected
annually by floods over the last ten years.
Major contributing factors to disastrous floods include poor urban planning which
increases flood hazard due to unsuitable land use change; increases in paving and
other impermeable surfaces. Poorly maintained drainage, sanitation and solid waste
infrastructure are equally responsible.
Don’t set bad examples
Through your esteem daily I would like to draw the kind attention of all the Arunachalee
fellows towards need for some deep introspection by people of our state. Here I refer
'Bad examples' to those people whose maximum acts set a bad precedent in the society
and system. I have learned from our society that our old father narrates our ancient
community war story with boastful manner and inculcate their children to glorify
that old pattern of fighting.
These would be good for those days but for today's this is totally uncivilized and
condemnable. Here, inculcating in boasting attitude is a bad example except if for
national interest. However, we should deaf ear to such practices because our parents
But some agony and suspense in my mind is the condemnable act of some educated people
whose act similar to that old parent's act of those days. Many educated people not
teach their old father about civic life rather they follow their old father's unproductive
activity of those ancient days.
Some bad examples I prefer to place are: the involvement of B.A, M.A graduate citizens
in booth capturing incidence in recently conducted Panchayat election which violate
the constitutional granted voting right. The involvement of the elite people in the
same incidence; the more practice of corruption by the responsible officers; many
types of encouragement given to criminal people by the MLA's and Ministers instead
of giving safety measures to law abiding citizens; some organization and vested interest
people for their penny end manipulatively mobilize the innocent people to perform
barbaric act like extortion, fighting, threatening, unlawful protest against any
developmental work or projects.
Yes, booth capturing and kidnapping of voters are common phenomena as we seen in
other states or country but don't adopt such uncongenial culture. We Arunachalee
are naturally peace loving people. For us, so and so practice generate more hatred;
it does not suit for people and society. But repeated practice of such act may pose
a danger like bad examples for our lovely Arunachalee.
Dear fellow citizens, think many times before you do these cited points. Keep in
mind, whatever we are doing are being seen/heard by our younger brothers and sisters.
Our all attitudes are imitated by our sons and daughters. When we ourselves do bad
examples and become bad example then what education can we give them?
For this, everybody needs introspection whether our activities may set bad or good
example for coming generation to follow.

Eugenics and Human Betterment
Most people of my state may unaware of this topic, indeed it is not familiar at all
still impact a very important role in the betterment of future
The betterment of human society can be achieved by Eugenics.
Eugenics deals with the application of the laws for the improvement of human race.
The science of eugenics can be defined as a science of well born improving the inborn
qualities of race and obtaining better heritage by judicious breeding. This is a
method through which we can improve the future generations by improving the germplasm
of existing individuals.
For better type of development both good heredity and suitable environment are necessary.
It is the responsible of every individual of the family to create a better environment
for the children. Family is the first institute.
Methods of Eugenics
2. Positive Eugenics
Negative Eugenics- It attempts to eliminate the defective germplasm of the society
A) Statutory ban marriage among close relatives.
The hidden recessive deleterious traits can appear in the progeny in full view of
both the parents carry them. The chances of both parents carrying hidden traits are
more if they are close relatives. The close relatives also include brothers and sisters.
Which result in defective genes in the offspring. In our society elderly people have
an intention to maintain the trend of relationship so they encourage close relatives
marriage which often results in the abnormal offspring but they never realized the
fact, in fact they believe that it is the curse of God that transferred to their
generation that their ancestors had committed sins long before.
B) Birth Control
People posseing more of undesired dysgenic traits should be encouraged to have small
C) Regulation of marriage should be maintained
Presently most human societies are money- minded for marriages, relationship like
the wealthy or highly placed persons who, however, may have several defective genetically
traits, are preferred over those who have economically weak but having eugenically
sound hereditary traits.
A) Marriage at the right age
Biologically approved marriageable age is 30-35 years. The biological and psychological
investigation has revealed that the aged persons often lack in necessary amount of
emotional activities and moreover, their germplast also lose its vigour. Therefore,
the late marriage should be prevented. The young person’s having best hereditary
traits should be encouraged for marriage on right age.
B) Improvement of environmental conditions
Both hereditary and environment have interrelated role in development of eugenically
better persons. Therefore every person should get better food, living conditi-ons,
education and medical guidance etc. So, his or her hereditary traits can unde-rgo
their best development.
The people should be educated about the basic principles of human biology, human
genetics, eugenics and sex. The children should be instructed about basic laws of
health and they should encourage to develop a physically and mentally healthy body.
Thus, the people must not be narrow minded, in fact marriage between inter- tribe
should be encouraged for better society. Marriage must be on the right time and above
all let us create better environment through which we can expect better Arunachal.
Through the column of your esteemed paper I would like to highlight the regarding
rampage claim of land compensation for Trans Arunarhal Highway project. The people
are making business of compensation by submitting fake bill by showing barren land
or mountainous area to be garden or plantation area. Our people should know that
construction of Highway is a public policy and govt, should also strictly implement
the National Highway Act 1956, inspite of land acquisition Act. The construction
of Trans Arunachal Highway is also a National Project and financed by central govt.
So, National Highway Act should be implemented and notify the area. Under section
3 G of the said Act clearly mentioned that 10 percent of the total amount of damaged
will be paid as compensation money. So, Land Acquisition Act shall not apply for
construction of Highway. It is heard that half of the total amount allotted for construction
of highway money is being spend on payment of compensation. So. the state govt. should
stop the payment of any compensation money for Trans Arunachal Highway and implement
National Highway Act and pay only 10% of total amount claimed by individual for the
greater interest of state and nation.
