very relevant in today’s environment of violence and intolerance in certain areas.
Gandhi ji, whose name is synonymous with the country’s struggle for Independence

communal harmony till his last breath. Gandhiji taught us to stand resolutely against
any challenge and to work for the eradication of poverty, illiteracy and discrimination.

of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
The Chief Minister advocated that the society abounds with law abiding, honest and
good citizens, who believe in democracy and desist anti-social elements and violence.
“Let’s not be taken for a ride by few ‘dirty drops of the ocean of humanity’. If

path of peace and progress. Let Gandhi Jayanti be a reminder and inspiration for
all of us to imbibe the path of non-violence and peace for over-all development of
the state,” he added.

PPDUYF writes to HRD director (T)
ITANAGAR, Oct 1: Papum Pare District Unemployed Youth Forum (PPDUYF) has urged the
Director (T), Union Ministry of Human Resource Development to take appropriate
steps for filling up all backlog C and D category posts from among the APST candidates
in the North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology.
The HRD ministery had instructed the NERIST authority to complete the process
by March 2012 to fill up the backlog vacancies under SC, ST, OBC and Person with
disability quotas, but the “lackadaisical approach of NERIST authority in this regard
disheartened the local unemployed youths,” the Forum said.
Alleging the NERIST register in-charge of favouritism, the Forum further said
that name of the candidate Dr Nabam Peter was enlisted in waiting list during
recruitment to the post of Medical Officer in 2011. But instead of giving chance
to waiting list candidate, the list was terminated later and vacant post was re-advertised
under OBC category instead of sending appointment letter to Peter as a waiting list
Other demands of the Forum included structural safety of Type -1 quarters, reconsideration
of the decision to wave the upper age limit as a one-time concession of the internal
candidates and job preference to local candidates.
The Forum alleged that instead of dismissing the service of a laboratory attendant/helper
who was declared foreigner by Foreigners Tribunal, North Lakhimpur, the NERIST authority
kept him under suspension since 07/05/2010 citing the writ petition.
Basic Education Of Gandhiji –“ Education Through Life, Education For Life”
M. Sc. B. Ed.
“By Education I mean an all round drawing out of the best in child and man-body,
mind and spirit”. This is how Gandhiji summed up his idea of true education.
Mahatma Gandhi, Man with pure soul , An apostle of truth and Ahimsa , pioneer of
Satyagrah, liberator of India from foreign rule; One of the outstanding educational
philosopher of the world was born on 2nd October at Porbander in Kathiawad . He
is officially honoured in India as the father of Nation, his birth day 2nd October
is commemorated as Gandhi Jayanti ,a national holiday and World wide as the International
day of Non Violence.
The Basic Education according to a pamphlet published by ministry of education, is
not only a valuable and integral part of the priceless legacy that Mahatma Gandhi
left to the Nation ,but embodies certain educational ideas and principles of greater
significance that have been welcomed and endorsed by distinguished and discerning
educationist in India and abroad.
The word Basic is derived from the word Base which means the bottom or foundation
of a thing upon which the whole things rest or is made.
Gandhji realized fully that the traditional system (system introduced by Macaulay
) is unreal and artificial. He said” I am convinced that the present system of education
is not only wasteful but positively harmful. He again feels, the present system of
education does not meet the requirement of the country in any shape or form . The
defect of system of education introduced by British in India are; It was an urban
system of education in a rural country, the curriculam was English dominated. The
system was too literary and bookish not in accordance with a needs of a secular democratic
The basic education aims at removing the defects .Gandhiji wanted to make education
self sufficient , otherwise teeming millions of India could not be educated. Let
us know the distinctive merits of basic education.
It is a child centered education .In the words of an eminent educationist, “The basic
education regards the child as the educational consumer whose needs must be studied
and understood, catered to and fullfiled ,
Learning by doing sums up the educational method of basic education. “Chalk” and
“Talk” lesions are not very useful. All educationist have condemned bookish knowledge.
In basic system of education the children acquire knowledge of the formal school
subject as a by product of purposeful activates.
Gandhiji considered, Craft as the core of the basic education .The process of education
should be imparted through some handicraft or industry.
Earn while you learn is another feature of the plan. The idea of self sufficient
basic education has a special significance in a country like India .
Basic system of education is directed to the needs of life .It is not pursue an
ideal which has no relation with or is totally isolated from the real situation
Free and compulsory education for seven years is one of the distinctive merits of
basic education. By free and compulsory education we mean an education for which
parents will not have to pay any fee and for which must send their children to school.
Gandhiji stressed that proper education can only be imparted through the mother tongue
.Foreign tounge as the medium of instruction is unfit for original work. It makes
us crammers and imitators .Basic education is for rural as well as urban areas. It
is wrong to assume that Basic education is intended to imparted in rural areas only.
In fact in one sense there is a greater need of basic education in urban areas, In
rural areas the children who participate in the life of the farm or allied occupation
of their families have certain types of further education. In performing their
jobs the children come into direct contact with the actual life, the experiences
they get from the basic further education. On the other hand in large towns and big
industrial cities the children miss the opportunities of rich experiences and direct
contact with life.
In closing the discussion let us say that the philosophy underlying the concept of
basic education evolved by Gandhiji and the essential principles of his scheme are
so important that they should guide and shape the educational system of our country
at all levels. We believe that the essential elements of the system fundamentally
sound and that with necessary modification these can form a part of education not
only at primary stage but at stages in our national system.
There is no doubt that an efficient and effective system of education is must for
solving most of the social and economic problems which confront us today .During
the last 30 years we have made a huge investment in development of education .However
many of our educational objectives yet remained unrealized owing to the errors of
commission and omission .A sharp break with the existing practices and priorities
in education will have to be considered .The break may not necessarily be at one
stroke . It can be gradual. .But a break there must be, for, otherwise the educational
system will become a drag upon the growth of the country. This break however must
be made after thorough experimentation and try out.

78 days have passed. The culprits involved in the July 15 attack on The Arunachal
Times associate editor Tongam Rina are still at large.
Education for women and children
Great strides have been made during the United Nations Literacy Decade. Across the
world, individuals, communities and countries have reached out to children, youth
and adults to enable them to read, write and transform their lives. As a result,
some 90 million young men and women and adults have become literate.
Despite all these efforts, an estimated 775 million young people and adults around
the world still cannot read or write; 122 million children of primary and lower secondary
school age remain out of school; and millions still graduate with inadequate literacy
skills. Women account for two-thirds of the world’s illiterate population. The
persistence of such numbers hobbles the efforts to achieve the Millennium Development
Goals and to build the inclusive knowledge societies.
In order to move faster to reach the most marginalized and uphold this basic human
right, the UN has launched a new Education First initiative. The initiative focuses
on three priorities: putting every child in school; improving the quality of learning;
and fostering global citizenship.
Earlier, UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon, in his message for the International Literacy
Day had called on world leaders and all involved with education to join this initiative.
The cost of leaving millions of children and young people on the margins of society
is far greater than the funds required to reach the international goals for education.
Anjaw district needs special attention from Govt of AP
The unprecedented flash flood has disrupted the road communication from Tezu to
Kibithoo, Hayuliang to Chaglagam and Hayuliang to Goiliang leading to complete disruption
of the vehicular traffic because of which there is an acute shortage of essential
commodities and medicines in the entire district. Lack of buffer stocks of essential
commodities has further aggravated the problems of the general public in the entire
Due to shortage of food grains all the schools have to be closed which has hampered
the student’s academic session badly. The utmost concerned of the citizens of the
district is related with the diseases, which may crop up after the flash flood. In
recent past also due to shortage of essential medicines at Community Health Centre
(CHC), Hayuliang, the villagers of Chilang village had to face lot of problems in
getting treatment for dysentery. In spite of all the efforts, one of the valuable
lives of the said village could not be saved from it.
Seeing the extent of damaged occurred to the road communication from Tezu to Kibithoo
and from Hayuliang to Chaglagam, it is bound to believe that even if the BRO resumes
the restoration work on war footing basis also, it may take some weeks to restore
the road communication to this land locked district. The delay in restoration work
will further aggravate the problems being faced by the government employees and the
general public of the district.
So, we would like to appeal the welfare Government of Arunachal Pradesh to take special
care and efforts to make available the essential commodities and medicines to the
far flung area of Chaglagam, Goiliang, Kibithoo, Walong, Hawai, Manchal and Hayuliang
circles by engaging air service.

God must save the peace loving state
Through your esteemed daily I would like to share my sadness with the masses. Since
several days have passed away on the cowardice and brutal attack on Tongam Rina but
till date no culprits have been booked to law. This is a failure of Govt. machineries.
But apart from all, I on behalf of all Arunachalee people would like to thank Chief
Minister Nabam Tuki for his decision of handing over the case to CBI for impartial
enquiries on the attack of Rina. Otherwise, “GOD MUST SAVE THIS PEACE LOVING STATE”
where now a day’s even dangerous animals like Tiger is also not safe in the Zoo itself.
