Forum against selling of alcohol in stalls during Reh


ROING, Jan 07: The Enjalu Menda Women's Empowerment Forum (EMWEF) submitted a written appeal to the Central Reh Celebration Committee to ban selling of alcohol in stalls during the three-day Reh festival celebration from first week of February. The appeal was submitted in an informal meeting at the Cheta Rheko hall here today.

"The EMWEF had successfully put a ban on selling alcohol in stalls in the Rheko campus last year, which resulted in a much peaceful celebration environment, especially for women and children", informed GS EMWEF Rakhi Linggi.

"We received positive feedback from doctors who said that last year was the only time there were no casualties in the hospital during the festival", added member EMWEF Rima Meto.

"Reh is the major festival of the Idu Mishmis and we want to send out a strong message against alcohol abuse through this platform", said member EMWEF Desai Linggi.

The EMWEF also added that they are not against the limited serving of local beverage by the committee, but the stalls that sell alcohol in abundance sends out a wrong message of the festival, to both the younger generation of the tribe and also to outsiders.

The Central Reh Celebration Committee, headed by the IMCLS, while praising this appeal by the forum, is yet to give a confirmation on the matter.

Condemnable act

Masked gunmen shouting "Allahu akbar!" stormed the Paris offices of a satirical newspaper on Wednesday, killing 12 people before escaping. It was France's deadliest terror attack in at least two decades. The Charlie Hebdo weekly had frequently drawn condemnation from Muslims for publishing satirical cartoon about Prophet Mohammed.  France raised its security alert to the highest level and reinforced security at houses of worship, stores, media offices and transportation. Top government officials were holding an emergency meeting.

Those killed include Editor-in-chief Stephane Charbonnier, known as Charb, and the cartoonists known as Cabu, Tignous and Wolinski. The incident has drawn condemnation from across the world. Muslim community has also strongly condemned the incident and stated that Islam does not support such barbaric act. This incident is direct attack on the freedom of press. People have right to differ with content of news or cartoons published but they have no right to kill someone. In Arunachal too media houses and journalists are always at the receiving end of the goons who tries to muzzle down press freedom.  Paris incident once again remind us how unsafe journalist communities are?

Still awaiting justice

Dear Editor,

Through the column of your esteemed daily, we the family members of Late Bengia Yame who died on 8th January’ 2014 at Arunachal State Hospital (ASH) Naharlagun following a knee cap surgery would like to lay down few points for consideration.

And she was operated on 6th January" 2014 and was undergoing treatment from the doctors of ASH. She later died within 5 minutes of after being given injection by the Sister Incharge. Thereafter we the family member lodged an FIR against aforesaid staffs and the case was registered. Now one year has passed but still we have not got justice. So, we would like to ask authority concern the following point as mentioned below:-

1 Why the case is still pending?

2. Why Post-mortem Report is delayed till today?

3. What is the outcome of enquiry committee set up by the Government?

We have enough evidences that our mother was killed in the hospital. She was a healthy person and was not suffering from any medical problem which was known from medical examination prior to the operation of knee cap. We, the family members are still waiting for the justice.

Declare results at the earliest

Dear Editor,

Through the column of your esteemed daily, I would like to draw the attention of the Chief Conservator of Forest Department, Western Arunachal Circle, Banderdewa, towards delay in declaration of written test examination result for the post of UDC, LDC and Forest Guard. The result of other circle has been declared on 30th Dec’2014. But the results of our CCF, Western Arunachal circle have not been declared yet. The rumour of unfair attempt has been spreading like wild-fire. I, being one of the poor candidates, request the concern authorities to declare the result as soon as possible to avoid any misunderstanding.

Let us pass on rich culture to gen. next

Dear Editor,

Through the column of your esteemed daily I would like to share what I feel the concerned departments should take note of. Just recently on my way back from village I happened to come across a very well made bamboo fence by the roadside and the first thought that hit me was ‘Wow! Now that’s Arunachal’ almost instinctively. And that had me thinking, what if that same thing was done not just in cultural exhibitions but also in places the public pass by on a daily basis- furnitures in offices, how about elegant bamboo-crafted stands at traffic points? Some obvious plus points:-

1) Promoting and thereby preserving our culture.

2) Employment opportunities for both the able youths and the aging populace even from the very remote corners of our state

3) Zero advertising cost. A single Facebook post can reach thousands and there’s Instagram, twitter, WatsApp, you tube etc. It will be a huge asset for the tourism sector. And by the time I was pondering over these endless possibilities I am suddenly an Arunachal fanboy all over again and that in itself is something worth celebrating. Not that I am some rich foreign investor but because I constitute a part of a whole generation of youths who very unfortunately, in more ways than one have grown tired of ‘almost anything local’. At this rate in a decade or so, the traditional wears that we so proudly present the chief guest in every other major occasions today will later end up in some museum with the tag- Last One, Though Up For Auction, No Historical Significance Whatsoever’.

I apologize if I am (as we’d say) ‘line cross kr dia’ but I earnestly would like to call upon one and all esp. our ‘parent’s generation’ to act now. I am probably not quite yet fit to be saying this but I sincerely believe it’s our shared responsibilities to come up with innovative ways to acquaint the coming generation with our rich tradition and culture. That being said I on behalf of all like-minded fellow Arunachalees, would like to make an appeal to our leaders and concerned departments of the Govt. of A.P. with the hope that my above mentioned points are taken into consideration if not as a suggestion but as a mere feedback would suffice.
