We strongly protest against non-publication of our writings in reply to the writings
of three Nepali friends in which they had claimed with the intention that Vijoynagar
was a forest area with no human habitation when Ex-Assam Rifle settlers came to the
area in 1964. You had confused the people of Arunachal by publishing the writings
of Advocate Gyan Gahire, Bhumi Upadhayaya and Bikram Newar and then later refusing
to publish our counter-writings which we had intended to explain in detail the misgivings
by such unwanted writings.
We really wonder your sense of editorial judgment when you had abandoned mid halfway
just after entertaining the above three people's writings and refusing to publish
our writings just after that. Even after pleading for the second time to re-consider
our request for publication in parts and your continued ignorance is deeply regrettable.
Anyway thank you.
Philip Ngwazah and friends. Shillong,
Take note of the ground realities
The demand made by DDJAC 28 Likabali and 36 Nari-Koyu is in stark contrast to the
reality. The cabinet approval for creation of Lower Siang dist. comprised of 29 Basar
and 28 Likabali assembly constituencies.
Resorting to bandh calls will only create problems for the commuters as Likabali
serve as the corridor for West Siang, Upper Siang and some adjoining areas of upper
Subansiri. In case 36 Nari-Koyu be made party to the proposed Lower Siang dist, the
demand should be made as such and not altogether removing Basar which has an equal
right to be included in the new dist.
Assuming that Likabali or Nari is given the dist. Headquarters- it should ensure
that proper land is demarcated for the govt establishments, but it is no exaggeration
to say that on my stay in Likabali circuit house I have found that; not even a single
space is left for further establishment, and the case being same with Nari. On the
other hand the DDJAC(Likabali-Nari) has also placed the proposal of Siki Rema or
Luki Kamnya for the dist. HQ which is still a virgin land and for the govt to start
from scratch it would involve more than 500 to 600 crores of rupees which in bitter
fact is far above the annual budget of Arunachal Pradesh. This proposed land is around
12 to 15 kilometres inside the mountains with no habitation and access to the outside
While shedding light to this fact, I would like to appeal the DDJAC Likabali-Nari
Koyu to go for an amicable solution in keeping with the ground realities. The Galo
people in particular and West Siang in general is thankful to the present govt. of
A.P. and hence, instead of infighting we should extend our cooperation in the development
of our state.

Uff Gandhis, ohh Vihars and Nagars
This is in response to "Uff Gandhis, ohh Vihars and Nagars" by Taba Ajum. I must
say the article was worth reading and an eye opener. As a matter of fact, the similar
confusion with "Shri" case came across in my life too on the first day of my college.
They put my name aside for investigation as I had given 'Shri' before my name in
some of my certificates and it took two days to clear the smokes. Wonder what made
me write Shri before my name.
Likewise, the names given to some famous places in town are really unpleasing to
ear. Like, Gyaker Syini is the original name for a Lake in town but people call it
Ganga Lake. Just wonder why. We should follow the name which is traditionally given
Hope by coming days people will realize the gravity of the concern and will preserve
the traditional nomenclature given to any place or individuals.
Thanks to Taba Ajum for his insight

If you still want to rule, fight for your kingdom
“Daughter can’t inherit father’s land, because it is ancestral property”. Since childhood
every daughter is taught in this way, this is a mind set no matter it is 6th or 21st
century, many things may change but this can’t be changed because it is a tradition...
Our father and brother is the king in the house but becomes rat as soon as they step
out of the house. They will order, suppress, abuse their wives, daughters, sisters
and mothers but when there is real need of this strength for the society as whole
they will keep mum.
Today I would like to point out to all the senior citizens of Dam affected area,
the bureaucrats, the politicians and the peasants all alike, that Jaypee have come
to build dam in your river, whether the dam is safe or broken your land will not
be yours anymore, it will become the property of Jaypee which will be resided by
lakhs of skilled and unskilled non-tribal laborers, which will automatically invite
cultural invasion in our society. What happened to your famous slogan ‘Loss of Culture
is Loss of Identity’? Are you really ready to lose your identity for the sake of
electricity? Simply thinking will not do, you will have to put it into action. ‘Dreaming
is good but a dream without action is just waste of time’. So, respected Fathers
and Brothers, if you still want to rule, fight for your kingdom now!
You are ready to give your land to an outsider but not to your daughter who happens
to be your own blood, right? What a thoughtful father you all are! I wish our valley
was a matriarchal society because no matter what, a mother would have died fighting
to save her children’s livelihood.

A strong administration means a strong State
Congratulations to all the successful candidates of recently declared APPSCC Exam.
The APPSC team also deserves credit for conducting a free and fair exam within a
record one year.
Huzar Lollen, IAS, Secretary APPSC has again proved his efficiency. A man of unmatched
wit and character, he as Deputy Commissioner of West Siang Dist. also was very impressive.
Over the years, this allied service which was and still is the 'iron pillar' of state
machinery has been degrading in power and position.
It is high time that State Govt. take steps to correct this anomaly and bring back
its lost lustre so that very foundation of state machinery remain strong and APCS
continue to attract young talent. A strong administration means a strong State.

Inspiring story of Sarah
Hats off to the Arunachal Pradesh Public Service Commission and the Government for
their endurance, efficiency and transparency in conducting the exam within a record
span of 11 months.
I was so impressed to go through Honi Bayang’s brief biography. He seems to have
been a brilliant student since day one, which is a tech-savvy designated as team
leader with giant IBM.
On the contrary your publication dated Dec 03, of Sarah Enung Borang is inspirational
and intriguing. She was a below average student with a humble background who was
employed as a peon in Tax & Excise department. Because of the greater difficulties
she has encountered, she seems more significant and higher in inspiration than the
ones who have even topped. Personally for me it was as if I was reading a modern
era ‘Cinderella fairy tale’. Sarah’s success fits precisely with the quotation of
Evan Esar, “Success is the good fortune that comes from aspiration, desperation,
perspiration and inspiration”. I’m certain that anyone who has read or heard of her
struggle to success has something to take home.
Looking forward to read in your next issue about Sarah’s mantra to success... guess
it would be just three tips - hard work, hard work and hard work.

exchequer from NHPC’s Dibang project should go for developmental expenses of the
fully project affected areas.
A proposal for a new road realignment to be undertaken by BRO, starting from Ranli
to Awali village via Old Anaya, Old Akeya and Old Kano was made in the petition.

of not below the rank of Sub-Divisional Officer at the new resettlement site.
