Scientists warn Arunachal of grave seismic threats

Bill on urban & town planning soon: CM

ITANAGAR, Jan 29: A major seismic threat looms large over entire North Eastern states especially Arunachal Pradesh, with the state situated in the Zone V of the seismic belt, according to geophysicist from IIT Kharagpur Professor S K Nath.

“All states in the region would suffer heavy casualties in the event of an earthquake of above eight point in Richter Scale and more damages will be suffered by Arunachal”, Professor Nath cautioned while delivering a keynote address on a day-long workshop on ‘Micro-Zonation  of landslide and earthquake hazards in Arunachal Pradesh’ organized by state remote sensing application centre in collaboration with union ministry of earth science and Arunachal Pradesh Science Centre here this morning.

Advocating for assessment of seismic vulnerability, Professor Nath warned that out of the 69 urban centers falling under seismic micro zones, 36 were very dangerous and Arunachal is one among them.

“Over one lakh people died in India in the last century due to earthquake and thirty per cent of the present population are in the zones IV and V of the seismic belt. Around 3.2 million square kilometer of area is under earthquake belt in the country”, he added.

“We need to create awareness among the people on the hazard of earthquake and to work out the guidelines in a holistic manner to prepare a comprehensive detailed project proposal to mitigate the adverse affects of natural disasters like earthquakes and landslides”, Chief Minister Dorjee Khandu commented. He said, about 786 earthquakes of varying magnitude occurred during the last century in the state and its surrounding areas with six above seven magnitude in Richter scale.

He pointed out that landslide, a common phenomenon in the state occurred due to various human factors could be minimized if awareness could be created among the people.  “The state government will like to provide facilities like fencing and irrigation to the farmers switching over to permanent cultivation instead of jhum and in this regard a proposal has been submitted to the Centre for approval. Once the proposal is approved it reduce landslide to a great extent”, he added.

The chief minister also urged the people to stop hunting and cutting trees.

Expressing regret on improper construction and unplanned towns in the state without proper drainage system, Khandu informed that a bill on urban and town planning would be prepared soon.

Since natural catastrophes are unpredictable, preparedness is the only means to lessen the disaster, said Parliamentary Secretary IT & Science & Technology Jomde Kena. He hoped that the expert advises of the scientists during the workshop would benefit the people of the state to great extent.

Finance Minister Setong Sena, Rural Development Minister Takar Marde and Commissioner IT & Science & Technology Y D Thongchi were present on the occasion. UNI

It is time to realize and actDear Editor,


Dear Editor,

If the present pace of increasing number of vehicles continues, it can be presumed that in next few years, these vehicles may outnumber the dwelling houses and other accommodations in state capital causing increasing motor accidents day by day taking lives of many, not to say of major adverse impact on our green  and  pollution free environment.

Broadening of roads not only of NH-52 but also improvement of linking roads to various sectors/colonies should get priority in the government agenda. Appreciating the drastic measures initiated by the police department to control haphazard vehicle parking & traffic movements, there is also need to checking of vehicles moving recklessly during late night hours.

Taking this advantage of  increasing  number of vehicles in the porous boundary area of our state, unlawful activities may be carried out by ultras/terrorists as it would be tough task for the police to minutely check  every vehicle in the capital. Although the central police in the Banderdewa Check Gate are manning well, the vehicles with red-light & tinted black glass are mostly allowed to cross the gate. The outlawed criminals or ultras taking these loopholes may also penetrate into our state.  

The terrorists usually do not use ILPs or any permission. The killers of 26/11 did not come to India with any visa or even requisite passports. Our thinly populated state situated in top of the region is a safe haven for terrorists and hence bears most vulnerable for security threats to our nation as a whole. Restriction in using red-light and the complete ban on using black-window in any type of vehicle to authorities irrespective of any portfolios is an immediate need of giving a serious thought on the issue 6y the government. Along with the government, full cooperation from common people is the need of the hour.

The Bangladeshis in Itanagar are mushrooming unnoticed and spread over in every markets and colonies engaged by our local people for petty jobs. This seems that we are rehearsing a part of recent history of Assam State where the Assamese are now in the verse of losing their own language & culture. We have already failed on Chakma-Hajong refugee issue. If we do not realize and act now, we would have the same fate as of Assam in immediate future.

Reconsider month for APPSCC main exam


Dear Editor,

Before drawing the schedule of main examination for APPSCC, I would like to request APPSC to reconsider the month for conducting the main examination. In prelims result notification it was mentioned that it would be conducted on May-June but, in my opinion it will not be right time for conducting such exam due to rainy seasons, road blocks etc. and also we are getting just four months for preparation. I think, six months should be the right time for preparation and month of August-September will be a right time and weather for such honorable exam.

Leprosy - an infectious disease

--Arvind Sarmah

A disease is an abnormal condition of an organism that impairs bodily function associated with specific symptoms and signs. It is mainly of two types- communicable (infectious diseases) and non communicable (non infectious diseases). Communicable diseases are categorised according to the types of pathogens like bacterial, viral, protozoan etc. Out of several bacteria causing diseases leprosy is one of the most fatal one.

Leprosy is a slow progressing chronic infectious disease which is characterised by development of granulomatous lesions on nerves, skin, mucous membranes, bones and viscera. The disease is nonfatal and curable. Leprosy was the first disease which was found to be caused by a patogen. It is caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae and Mycobacterium lepromatosis. It was discovered by Norwegian doctor Hansen in 1874. It is also called Hensen's disease. The most favourable sites are Schwann and perineural cells in areas which tend to remain cool. Another name is lepra due to presence of rough and scaly skin.

Historically, leprosy has affected mankind since at least 600 BC and was well recognized in the civilization of ancient China, Egypt and India. In 1995 the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that between two and three million people were permanently disabled because of leprosy. India has the greatest number of cases, with Brazil second and Burma third. In 2000 the WHO listed 9 countries in which Hensen's disease is endemic. India, Myanmar and Nepal contained 70% of cases. India accounts for 64% of globally registered cases of leprosy. According to recent figures from the WHO, new cases detected worldwide have decreased by approximately 107,000 cases from 2003 to 2004. This decreasing trend has been consistent for the past few years.

At highest risk are those living in endemic areas with poor conditions such as inadequate bedding, contaminated water and insufficient diet, or other diseases that compromise immune function. Recent research suggests that there is a defect in cell mediated immunity that cause susceptibility to the disease. The region of DNA responsible for this is also involved in Parkinson disease giving rise to current speculation that the two disorders may be linked in some way at the biochemical level. In addition, men are twice as likely to contract leprosy as women.

It is not highly infectious, as approximately 95% of people are immune and sufferers are no longer infectious after only a couple of days on treatment. They would not have spread leprosy through a community, whereas syphilis, which has similar symptoms, is more contagious.

Leprosy can develop at any age but appears to develop most often in people aged 5 to 15 years or over 30.

How leprosy is spread is unclear. However it may be passed from person to person through droplets expelled from the nose and mouth of an infected person and breathed in or touched by an uninfected person. But even after contact with the bacteria, most people do not contract leprosy. About half of the people with leprosy probably contracted it through close, long term contact with an infected person. Leprosy cannot be contracted by simply touching someone with the disease, as it commonly believed. The only other animals besides humans known to contract leprosy are Armadillo, Chimponzu and Cynomolgus macaque. The incubation period for the leprosy causing bacteria can last anywhere from two to ten years.

Leprosy can be categorized by the type and number of skin areas affected. Those with 5 or fewer affected skin areas have leprosy that is called paubacillary. Those with 6 or more affected areas have leprosy that is called multibacillary. Leprosy can also be classified as tuberculoid, lepromatous or borderline according to the symptoms people have and other findings.

Since the bacteria that cause leprosy multiply very slowly, symptoms usually do not begin until at least 1 year after people have been infected. On average, symptoms appear 5 to  7 years after infection. Once symptoms begin they progress slowly.

Leprosy affects mainly the skin and peripheral nerves. Characteristic rashes and bumps develop. Infection of the nerves makes the skin numb or the muscles weak in areas controlled by the infected nerves.

Tuberculoid leprosy, is benign and self limited form of leprosy which is characterised by the presence of a few asymmetrical sharply defined, pale or reddish patches or macules with elevated border and dry rough surface. It is mostly non infectious and is believed to occur in patients with high degree of immunity.

Lepromatous leprosy, is malignant and infectious type of leprosy in which the bacillus spreads to all parts of the body because the immune system of the patient is poor. A number of diffused, symmetrical pale nodules appear in the skin and get transformed into plaques and then nodules or lepromas.

Borderline leprosy shows the features of both tuberculoid and lepromatous type of leprosy, without treatment, borderline leprosy may become less severe and more like the tubercuboid form, or it may worsen and become more like the lepromatous form.

If left untreated leprosy has serious effects on the body including—

Hands and feet--Leprosy bacteria attack the nerves in the hands and feet and cause them to become numb. A person may get cuts or burns on the numb parts and not know it, leading to infections which cause permanent damage. Fingers and toes may be lost to infection. Paralysis may cause the fingers and toes to curl up permanently.

Eyes-leprosy bacteria attack the nerves around the eyes causing the loss of blinking reflex. The eyes become dry and infected, and blindness may result. Because of numbness of eye, the person cannot feel dirt or scratches in the eye.

Nose-damage to internal lining of the nose causes scarring and eventual collapse of the nose.

Sexual function-men with lepromatous leprosy may have erectile dysfunction (impotence) and become infertile. The infection can reduce the amount of testosterone and sperm produced by the testes.

Kidneys-the kidneys may malfunction. In severe cases kidney failure may occur.

Because leprosy is not very contagious, risk of spread is low. Only the untreated lepromatous form is contagious, although even then the infection is not easily spread. Once treatment has begun, leprosy cannot be spread. Avoiding contact with bodily fluids from and the rash on infected people is the best prevention. National leprosy control programme (NLCP) aims at treatment and re-habitation of leprosy in the society. This program was started in 1955. The BCG vaccine, used to prevent tuberculosis (TB) provides some protection against leprosy.

Antibiotics can stop the progression of leprosy do not reverse any nerve damage or deformity. Thus early detection and treatment are vitally important. The drugs chosen depend on the type of leprosy.

For multibacillary the standard combination of drugs (MDT-multidrug treatment) dapsone, rifumpin and clofazimine is used.

People take rifumpin and clofazimine once a month under a health care practitioner’s supervision. They take dapsone plus clofazimine once a day without supervision for 6 months. Because the bacteria are difficult to eradicate, antibiotics must be continued for a long time. Depending on the severity of the infection and the doctors judgment, treatment continues for 6 months to many years. Doctors recommend lifelong treatment with dapsone for people with lepromatous leprosy.
