AAPSU calls for strengthening Army in border areas, questions functioning of DoTC
ITANAGAR, Nov 17: In a memorandum to the Governor Gen (Retd) J J Singh, All Arunachal
Pradesh Students Union have called for deployment of adequate personnel in the areas

Department of Tirap and Changlang (DOTC) also found mention in the memorandum. The
Union said that DoTC was created in order to cater to the need of the common masses
and the overall development of the two district. “However it is pertinent to note
that the department has miserably failed to live up to the expectation of the people
and no tangible development has been achieved so far by it since its establishment.”
It further stated that “it is felt that the funds meant for the development are dished
out to the ultras operating in the two districts covertly’.
The Union requested the Governor to pursue with the newly elected Government in the
state so that the fund meant for DoTC in this financial year is given for up keep
and development of Wangcha Rajkumar College in Deomali and Rangfrah College in Changlang,
which are facing paucity of fund.
Further, the union request the Governor to suggest ways and means to constitute an
all-party committee at the state level to monitor the expenses of developmental work

Even after a month, family of Tako Tagak awaits justice
ITANAGAR, Nov 17: It was exactly one month ago that IRBn jawan, Tako Tagak, was allegedly
killed by ITBP personnel under mysterious circumstances at Seppa while on election
duty. While state government has ordered a judicial inquiry into the incident, none
of the accused has been put behind the bars.
The days have turned into month still family members of victim are waiting justice.
Despite all odds, they have not given up the hope of getting justice for the deceased
On Tuesday, family organized a memorial service to commemorate one month of his death.
People from all walks of life turned up to pay homage to departed soul, which included
representatives from students’ union, state police and public of Dobum village from
As state police band team started playing music, people one after other paid homage
to late Tago Tagak by offering flowers at his memorial. The atmosphere turned quite
somber as wife of late jawan paid homage to her departed husband with teary eyes
and everyone present on the occasion became highly emotional. As rest of the family
members consoles her, soon she gets busy attending to her four-year-old son who did
not understand what was going around.
Speaking to this daily, Tako Aman, brother of departed jawan told, “We are overwhelmed
by support extended to us by AAPSU, ALSU, ANSU, general public and media fraternity
in our fight to bring killer of my brother behind the bar.”
He also fondly remembers his late brother. “He was always interested to join armed
forces. He had even appeared for interview for Indian Army also before he finally
got job with IRBn,” told Tako Aman. For him the most hurting aspect of this entire
mayhem has been government’s lack of respect towards his late brother. “Initially
some people tried to drag his death as outcome of drunken brawl which was untrue.
It has been more than a month but till now they have not arrested anyone, which is
surprising,” he told.
He is now worried for the wife and children of his late brother. “Government should
take care of my brother’s wife and his children as he died serving state during election
time. We still hope our government will offer us helping hand,” he concluded. The
ball is now in the court of the state government. Sure, everybody wants to know who
was person behind the killing of late Tako Tagak.

Walong remembers martyrs of 1962
WALONG, Nov 17: Situated at the tri -junction of Tibet, Burma and India, Walong is
intricately linked to Indian History. Forty Six years ago in the high altitude of
Walong sector when the Chinese People’s Liberation Army made a major intrusion in
the Indian territory, brave Indian soldiers fought hard against the Chinese until
they ran out of ammunition, ration and finally laid down their lives in the alter
of the motherland.
Giving a befitting tribute to the brave soldiers of the Indian army, the TIME magazine
wrote that “in Walong, the soldiers of Indian army lacked everything but what they
didn’t lack was the guts”.
Walong Day is celebrated every year by the army on 16 November at Walong and it is
organized by 82 Mountain Division under the aegis of Dinjan Army Headquarter (DAH)
to pay tribute to the brave soldiers of the Indian army who gallantly laid down their
lives to safe guard the motherland and hardship faced by the local population supporting
the army during the war.
The significance of the Walong Day is that it was on the very day ceasefire was declared
and the war ended. After the Indo-China war ended and decades after there has been
tremendous development in the region and as a consequence Walong is connected by
fair weather road at present. The road connecting the border from the mainland serves
as the life line for the army as well as for the local indigenous people of Lohit
and Anjaw districts.
‘In 1962, when Walong the eastern most part of the country was attacked Chinese
army had better connectivity up to the border and they assembled men, ammunition
and ration in no time whereas the Indian army without ammunition, ration and warm
clothing had to march for fourteen to twenty days to reach the border in order to
fight the Chinese’, said Major General BS Sachar, SM, VSM while speaking as the chief
guest of the day.
But today the Indian army is well equipped to fight the enemy if there is any assault
in the Indian territory, he informed confidently.
Formally, the celebration began with power point presentation of the actual battle
fought by the Indian army in 1962 by the Commanding Officer of the Kibithu Garrison
K.S. Dhadwal before the Deputy Commissioner of Anjaw District C.S.Jeinow, other district
sub-ordinate officers, media persons, jawans, officers and publics of the region.
Chief guest, Brigadier Manjeet Mehta, SM Commader Lohit Brigade and other high officials
and jawans of the army later laid wreaths at the Walong War Memorial.
The other high point of the Walong Day celebration was dedication of a hut in memory
of the martyrs unveiled by the chief guest.
The locals presented colourful traditional Mishmi dance while physically challenged
Tashi Mayor presented emotional and famed patriotic song ‘a meri waton ke logo,jara
yaad karo woh qurbani’ on the occasion of the Walong Day.
The chief guest also visited local Gompa and presented study materials and sweets
to the school children who were seen waving the Indian tri colour high on the occasion.
On 17 November the army organized a grand mela on 17 November as continuation of
Walong Day celebration. (The Eastern Mail News Agency)

Theravada and Mahayana Buddhism: A glimpse
By Bhikkhu Pannasara
Most famous religions the world over are generally divided into two divisions. That
may be for the reason of their existence. For e.g the main religion in India which
is at present considered as the major religion “Hinduism” has two divisions, the
Vaishnavite and the Shivaite.
In this way, Muslims have two divisions namely Shia and Sunni. The Christians have
two divisions Catholics and Protestants. Jainism also has two divisions Digambara
and Swetambara, so in this way Buddhism has two branches called as Hinayana (Theravada)
Here ‘Yana’ means vehicle. Therefore the western Buddhist scholars have named them
as greater vehicle (Mahayana) and lesser vehicle (Hinayana).
These terms were coined during the eleventh century particularly by the new emergence
of Buddhist sect which they themselves called as Mahayana.
In Buddhism philosophically both sect follow the same tenets but traditionally there
are many differences which arose according to the time and situation.
Main features of the Mahayanist which differ from the Theravada:
a) It is that, the Mahayanist’s have lot of Bodhisattvas (Buddha aspirants) whereas
in Theravada there is only one Bodhisattava remained to become the Buddha in this
eon itself that is Aryamaitreya.
b) According to the concept of both Mahayana and Theravada, the dispensation of the
Gautama Buddha would last for four- five thousand years. After the expiration of
five thousand years the Bodhisattava Maitreya will be born on this earth and he will
become the Buddha.
c) But the Mahayanist as we have mentioned above has a lot of Bodhisattavas. They
believe that any of those Bodhisattavas may be born as Buddha. Here I would like
to quote some of the names of Mahayanist Bodhisattavas : Manjushriee, Padmapani,
Vajrapani, Avalokiteswara, Tara. The last one ‘Tara’ is a female Bodhisattava who
does not exist in Theravada. These Bodhisattavas are not found in Theravedan form
of Buddhism. According to Theravada a Bodhisattava has to perform ten perfections
multipled by three (30 perfections or parametas).
d) In Mahayanism a Bodhisattava has to complete only eight parametyas (perfections).
e) In Theravada simply a monk has to eliminate ten fetters which are called Sangyojanas
whereas in Mahayana one has to cross the ten Bhomis known as Dasabohomis.
f) Both deny the existence of a Supreme God
Regarding the concept of the Buddha:
The Theravada believes that Buddha was a person born in a royal family. In Mahayana
they believe that the Buddha is only a manifestation sent to this earth by the undying
Buddha (Eternal Buddha) called as Amitabha.
The Pure land school of the Chinese Buddhist have created this Amitabha cult saying
that there is an undying or eternal Buddha who lives in the western paradise and
all the Bodhisattavas who completed the aforesaid parameteas and Dasabhomis are amalgamated
with the Amitabha Buddha.
This particular Buddha is living in the western sky according to the Avatamsaka Sutra,
of the Pure land school of Chinese Buddhist.
According to Theravada tradition so far there are 28 Buddhas along with Gautama that
came on earth but the Mahayanis count the appearance of Buddha from Konagamahna Buddha.
To prove this a Stupa is found in Nepal, in which there is an inscription which says
“Kanaka Munina Dineh” meaning this stupa was erected in memory of Konagamahna Buddha.
At present the followers of Mahayana Buddhism are majority when compared to the followers
of the Theravada sect of Buddhism. Most of the Asian countries such as Japan, Korea,
Vietnam, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tibet, Bhutan, Mongolia, Siberia and the Calamari
Autonomous region of Russia are the followers of Mahayana Buddhism.
Theravada is practiced in India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia and part
Though there are two different sects in Buddhism, yet there are no differences amongst
the Theravada and Mahayana sect.
