Imparting quality education is the biggest challenge: UPSC chairman
ITANAGAR, April 25: The Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) Chairman Prof. D P
Agarwal who is on a four-day maiden visit to Arunachal Pradesh, interacted with the
eminent intellectuals, educationists and senior citizens of the state in the Conference
Hall of Planning Department, Govt. of A P here today.
Addressing the galaxy of eminent personalities Agarwal said that in state like Arunachal
Pradesh where the infrastructure is underdeveloped must harness the present facilities
to its maximum. To ensure the optimal utilization and mobilization of the resources
the concerned authorities should make use of technological tools, which will help
in achieving the target of imparting “Quality Education”.
He expressed his concern on proactive role that is missing in NERIST and RGU. He
also suggested for increasing the strength in all subjects. He further said that
Imparting Quality Education is the biggest challenge posed in front of us as on today.
“We must focus and stress upon the nurturing and developing future faculties for
better Arunachal and best India.”
While discussing he said that what syllabus/ Course Curriculum students are studying
today in many of the Universities is not revised since a decade or two. The syllabus/
course curriculum should be updated and revised regularly keeping in view the local
needs, employability and national importance. He stressed upon the development of
dynamic course curriculum which can only be designed and followed if the academic
autonomy is provided to the faculties and authorities have to look into the matter
on the proactive basis, which also caters to create healthy teaching learning atmosphere.
Skills and educational achievements were what lent the candidate their personality
and good training should be able to hone that personality, he said. He advocated
for encouragement of vocationalization of education system within the formal education
system to enhance and identify the skills of an individual.
Dr. Joram Begi, Director, Higher & Technical Education, GoAP highlighted the strengths
and weaknesses of the Higher Education in the State. While discussing he said that
Arunachal Pradesh is lagging far behind in respect of current teacher and students
ratio, which was 1:62 upto previous year and brought down to 1:42 at present, as
compared to present National level ratio of 1:24. He further stated that the State
Government is spending 0.3% of its GSDP for the Higher Education, which is very meagre
for growth and development.
Dr. Joram Begi also said that maiden visit of UPSC Chairman and his team will certainly
boost the morale and inspire the aspirants of UPSC in the state.
Jathi Pulu, Member APPSC and Prof. S. N. Singh of Rajiv Gandhi University also spoke
during the interaction.

Family refuses to accept ex-gratia
Pasighat, Apr 25: The family members of Lt. Mathew Baki Dabi who died on ‘poll duty
at Siine village’ refused to accept the ex-gratia of Rs 20 lacs granted by the ECI
as an immediate relief.
A team sent by DC East Siang met the family members yesterday at Namey village with
the ex-gratia which was refused by the family members on the ground that there is
no conclusion to the case yet.
The family in a statement said, that relief money will only be accepted after there
is a final closure of the case and those responsible for the death of Lt. Dabi are
arrested and punished.
The family members also condemned the statement made by SP East Siang which was published
in this daily. The SP stated that there was no major, external or stabbed injury
on the body of the deceased.
The family questioned the reported statement of the police in which it was stated
that Lt. Dabi was under the influence of alcohol as he was discharging poll duty
on April 9.
Terming the statement irresponsible and concocted, the family said that Dabi performed
his duty well. The family further said that giving such statement police officials
are trying to to dilute the murder case and mislead the society.
Responding to the SP’s statement the family said that instead of dousing the fire
the police has ignited the sentiments of the family members. It further questioned
the integrity of the police for giving such provocative statement.
The forensic result are still being awaited but the police seems to know more than
they are willing to divulge by making such irresponsible statement.
The family members are compelled to disclose the post mortem report to the media
that clearly confirms that the death was caused due to forceful impact of multiple
injury on the body.
Since, there was an altercation between the presiding officer and the polling agent
with Lt Dabi, the family claimed that there is a political conspiracy.
They requested the authority to take in remand all the polling officers and polling
agents till inquiry is completed.
Family members also requested the media not to entertain or publish any irrelevant
or provocative news.
Meanwhile, the SP who met the family members today refuted making any irresponsible
comments. He further informed that forensic report is expected within first week
of May. The wife of deceased expressed her gratitude to the DC, Nidhi Shrivastav
for extending all possible help.
Teachers threaten agitation
Arunachal Teachers Association (ATA) and Arunachal Pradesh Elementary Teachers Association
(APETA) have threatened to launch democratic movement against the East Siang administration
if culprit involved in the ‘murder’ of Late Dabi is not booked by May 5.
Meanwhile, ATA and APETA, Ramle Banggo Block Unit has requested the DC for arrest
of the culprit involved in the suspected murder of Lt. Dabi. It called for immediate
arrest of polling officials, polling agents.

Who says the growth of Open & Distance Learning mean they are becoming “the University
of Last Resort”?
Dr. Joseph Kuba
Gard Titlestad, Secretary General of the International Council for Open and Distance
Education (ICDE) noted that while in 2007 there were 150 million ODL students worldwide,
the European Union and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
(OECD) are predicting 400 million students by 2030. “The changes in higher education
are dramatic,” he said, “and the only thing stable is change.” Online, distance and
campus learning do not only have a unique set of dynamics of their own but are also
converging, he continued, and with this comes an even more diverse higher education
In many parts of India, ODL system is still considered inferior to the conventional
university education system. Well known academicians have made such proclamations
in public. Unfortunately, many among the academic or decision-making fraternity also
have this concocted view. Students of ODL wonder as to whether the certificates they
receive will be acceptable for employment. Such sweeping assertions, however, will
grossly damage the educational terrain of a country like ours where access to high
quality and affordable education is highly polarised. If we look everywhere, the
changes in education, mentioned earlier, can be clearly visible in many distinct
areas particularly in the light of globalisation/internationalization which has no
more become a topic of commercial or academic debate. Globalisation has reached the
doorsteps of everyone. Education in an era of globalization has also twisted the
concept a clean 360 degrees turn. Ignoring this will be to the peril of the incumbent.
Let us look up a few pointers in this regard.
The cost of education in a good university is very high and there has been a trend
of consistent escalation over the years. At Harvard University, for instance, a Post-Graduate
course costs about $94800.00. Without mentioning the living costs, convert this into
Indian Rupees and the amount is Rs. 5753474.54. Very few people in India will be
able to afford such an amount. Access, therefore, to such an opportunity is very
limited. Secondly, the curriculum is getting more and more diversified and specialised.
It must adhere to all areas of societal needs. There has been increasingly demand
for skill-specific courses. In a country/state like ours where agriculture is the
main source of livelihood, a person holding a Diploma in Aquaculture or a Certificate
in Sericulture or Organic Farming will be far more useful than a person with a Ph.D.
in Political Science or Gender Studies or Library Science. Real education is learning
to ‘perfectly fit into that empty space’ in society and thereby become an asset for
one’s own development and the society around him/her.
Thirdly, the developments in information and communications technology have exploded
the flow of knowledge from place to place. This has also resulted in the availability
of educational resources in the open domain. Facts and figures are available at the
click of a button. This has increased productivity and tremendously reduced the amount
of time spent for a task. Lastly, today the new generation of youngsters has become
much more independent and many have outgrown their age to shoulder responsibilities
usually meant for elders/parents. Due to all forms of influences they are able to
know and do just about the right thing. By the time they finish their +2 they see
a world of opportunities to earn by showcasing their abilities. They are able to
take care of their own needs confidently. But they have to acquire certain qualifications,
particularly courses suited to their profession, to go higher in life. And this is
where the “earn and learn” impulse crystallizes. To do this, they seek for recognized
institutions that can accommodate their needs and expectations.
Whether we like it or not or whether we agree with the concept or not, ODL system
is here to stay. And it is improvising at such a rapid pace … let’s hope it does
not relegate the centuries old university system to a group of some eccentric ‘geniuses’
who, instead, of throwing the cigarette out of the window and jump on the bed, does
otherwise! Smart Classrooms, which is becoming popular in our own backyards or the
so-called 3DI classroom concept popular in the West are eventually a form of ODL
system put to full use with all necessary technical support. “For the first time
in human history we have the tools for education for all, but do we have the will
and the skills?” (Gard Titlestad)
ODL is an alternative system of education. It is not a different kind of education.
Quality is objective and can be judged. But preconceived notions and vested interests
have thrown all kinds of dirt at this one most innovative venture in education in
recent times. Instead of encouraging ODL as complementing the education system as
a whole many in the academia frown at the system and look down upon its learners
as ‘half-baked literates’. Who says; the ODL institutes are ‘last resort universities’?
There is a philosophical ring to it, however. Perhaps, in the near future all universities
will resort to a system that is already the ‘essence’ of the ODL system because there
would be no other choice. (The writer is Regional Director i/c IGNOU Regional Centre,
Ukraine has become the biggest flashpoint between West and Russia. The tension in
Eastern Ukraine is further dividing the gap between two blocks. Western heads of
state today said that they are considering fresh sanctions against Russia over its
alleged failure to help de-escalate the crisis in Ukraine. France, Germany, US, Britain
and Italy, accused Russia of disrespecting a deal to disarm pro-Russian separatists
in eastern Ukraine. Russia earlier accused the West of wanting to "seize" Ukraine.
Ukraine also warned that it would consider any crossing into its territory by Russian
troops as a "military invasion". Moscow has tens of thousands of troops stationed
along its side of the border with Ukraine. Pro-Russian separatists have been occupying
key buildings in a dozen eastern towns, defying the central government in Kiev. It
is matter of great concern that both West and Russia are trying to use Ukraine to
settle score over each other. The two parties should stop confrontational attitude
and resolve the issue through dialogue. The innocent Ukrainian citizen should not
become victim of the ego clash between West and Russia.

Hats off to TK Engineering consortium Pvt. Ltd.
At present time, unemployment is one of the major problems of our state. Many students
go out of the state for further studies hoping that they will get good job in their
own state. But finally what happens? Their dreams and hope just goes in vain. State
Govt. hardly recruits or creates job opportunities in a year and maximum job are
being captured by politician and rest is being sold.
In view of the above problem, I appreciate and extend thanks to T.K Engineering consortium
pvt ltd for recruiting more than 100 engineers in their company and in one way or
other, it helps the unemployed youths. To my opinion, the said Company should be
exempted from all the state taxes and departmentally share (percentage). I am very
much sure, that state Govt. will never be able to create so many jobs in a year as
T.K Engineering consortium pvt ltd had done at a time. I wish owner/Proprietor of
T.K Engineering consortium pvt ltd that he achieves all the dreams he had weaved
for the Company.
Lastly, I also thank Arunachal times for giving us this column as a Readers Forum
to write down our opinion and share with the public.
Jollang IV village struggling to get portable water supply
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of concerned authorities
towards portable water crisis in Jollang-IV village. It is fact of the matter that
people of my Gram Panchayat segment, Jollang- IV have been severely hit by water
crisis since last three weeks. Even though I made both verbal and written complaint
to the concerned department, no responsible officer has turned up to pay visit in
order to take stock of situation and to check out the ground reality of my village.
Most of the bore wells have dried up in our area. No humanitarian service has been
delivered by the so called PHE &WS Department in spite of their tall claim that my
village is being connected with water supply system. In fact their last year’s G.I
Pipes which they had laid in the name of connecting water supply system to our village
are seen lying here and there broken into pieces and no one is taking care of it.
With a high expectation and hope to serve their interests I have been democratically
elected by valued people of my village to the post of Gram Panchayat Chair person
under Jollang Anchal Samity segment. Because of it I am placing the grievances of
It is my primary and essential duty to readdress miseries of my people and to protect
their valuable lives from the prey of waterborne diseases. My question to the PHE
& WS Department, what is the motto of your Department? Is it your motto not to provide
portable water to your own brother, sister, father and mother?
IV-Jollang Anchal Samiti Segment
Let us preserve our natural resources for better tomorrow
Today, every sector of the capital complex is facing acute shortage of water supply.
It seems that there is a major water crisis in our state capital. If this is the
situation by this time then what will be the future? How the coming generation will
survive without water? The dream of drinking water supply which is available in all
metropolises is a gibberish mania in our capital. It seems that, even, the mega water
project had failed to resolve the problem of water scarcity in the capital complex.
No doubt, most of us had dug wells in our residential areas but most of them have
been dried up now.
Well, for such situation, we all are collectively responsible for it. Everybody knows
that our mother earth is the only planet where life is possible because of its water
content. She gives everything to us that are required for a good and healthy life.
She gives us water, forest, beautiful mountains, flora, fauna and what not. Despite
these beautiful gifts given to us at free of cost, we are destroying these gifts
day by day by cutting down beautiful trees and razing down mountains. Even, the fresh
rivers have been converted into dumping places. Everywhere, dozing down of beautiful
mountains, deforestation of the natural forests is seen every day. Even the planted
trees of the forest department have not been spared by us.
History says that downfall of civilization is caused by many factors like famine,
drought or destroyed by the enemy. The renowned town Fatehpur Sikri of Agra, Uttar
Pradesh from where the great Mughal ruler Akbar the Great got his son Prince Salim
has to be abandoned due to the water scarcity in the later stage. All over the
world, the major cities and towns have been established nearby by sea or big river
in view of the growing necessity of water in days to come. But, unfortunately, there
is no sea and big river nearby our capital city Itanagar. We have only small tributaries
like Ganga River and Chimpu River that culminate into Pachin River. These tributaries
are also drying up now. The size of these rivers is diminishing annually at a very
Now, a conclusion can also be drawn from the ruins of ITAFORT. As per these wrecks,
once upon a time, there has been a major civilization in Itanagar. But, the area
has to be abandoned, the reason not exactly known till today. Abandoning of the
Itanagar city due to water scarcity by that civilization cannot be ruled out. Moreover,
the soil of our capital is of sandy nature and takes time to re-generate forests.
Therefore, it is fear that the same may happened in the days to come, if we do not
take extra precautions right from now.
The unfortunate burning of forests and demolishing of natural mountains in and around
the capital complex is a major concern. Everywhere, deforestation of our beautiful
forest resources is going on. The beautiful mountains are being converted into a
plain land by bulldozing continuously. This continuous erosion of our natural resources
by ourselves is going to cause a major disaster in the days to come. As the sources
of water is only and only the mountains and the forests, let us protect the natural
resources of our capital complex from further damages and help it to regain the natural
beauty. Let us think too for the life of the future generation.
