The Festivals in Arunachal- its significance in modern times
Dree- one of the most significant, agro-religious festivals is celebrated enthusiastically
on 5th and 6th July every year by the Apa-Taniis, the indigenous residents of the
beautiful Ziro valley. In this occasion the Apa-Tanii people and others too come
with their best of traditional attires. It helps in promoting traditional handloom
clothes thereby encouraging cottage industries to flourish which comes close to Gandhian
ideology. Informally, it is celebrated from 4th to 7th July by the Apa Tanii people,
the period which can be termed as Dree season. Similarly, every tribe’s festival
has its season. The Dree festival is celebrated colorfully with traditional fanfare
basically to receive blessings from divinities for all sorts of protection to the
crops so that granaries of the people are fully filled with the produces after rich
harvests. Most tribal festivals in Arunachal Pradesh which are celebrated in pomp
and gaiety are connected with agricultural activities in one way or other. Very soon
Solung festival of Adis would be celebrated. Now these festivals of Arunachal like
Dree of Apa-Taniis, Solung of Adis, Mopin of Galos, Nyokum of Nyisis, Si-Donyi of
Tagins, Chalo Loku of Noctes and all others are celebrated in its modernized form
by the Arunachalee brethren everywhere even outside Arunachal Pradesh. Such festivals
are enthusiastically celebrated in places like Delhi, Shillong, Guwahati, Kolkata,
Mumbai, Chennai and others since very long; with warm participation, appreciation
and co-operation of mainland people. Such festive occasions foster national integration
because people of all age, all walks of life and all communities participate with
zeal, gaiety and enthusiasm. In-fact, these festivals are celebrated not only for
the tribe concerned but also for humanity as a whole. In case of Dree it is celebrated
both for bumper harvests and bringing love and affection, good-will and fellow-feeling,
regard and respect and unity and integrity as well as to ensure peaceful, harmonious,
prosperous, successful and disease-free world. Similar philosophy is attached to
all other tribes’ festivals. Such age-old festivals are a perfect platform for social
integration and helps in forming homogenous society.
These tribal festivals help in promoting traditional dresses and costumes; traditional
ornaments and jewelries; traditional arts and crafts; traditional songs and dances;
traditional foods and drinks; folklores and sacred literatures; traditional games
and sports; and moral and human values
as courtesy, generosity, kindness, good will, cooperative sense, social heartedness/mindedness
and like. Rather, these festivals help in preserving traditional knowledge system
which is invaluable. No less important, these festivals help us to preserve our rich
cultural heritage. Our age-old festivals are reformed and revitalized through regular
and innovative celebrations. Professional and amateur tourists from within the country
and across the globe are greatly attracted during such celebrations and thereby promoting
tourism which generates revenue for the Government besides employment opportunities
for the unemployed youths. Importantly, literary and academic abilities and cultural
and sports (both traditional and modern) capabilities are also duly encouraged through
appropriate incentives and are made to display in such festivals. In a way, these
festivals offer a perfect forum especially for the upcoming youngsters to showcase
their talents- cultural, games/sports or academic / literary. It would be worthwhile
to mention that academic toppers and other outstanding achievers amongst the youngsters
are felicitated in full public view in such festive occasions. The sacred rites and
rituals; traditional sacrifices and offerings; invitations and well-comes; community
feasts and offer/sale of traditional foods, drinks and other items; Fashion show
and Beauty contest; Mr. contest, traditional wrestling and exciting Tug-of-War game;
display/sale of rare books and sale of new festive-season audio/visual cassettes
and lucky-try lottery tickets and its draw; inaugural and valedictory functions with
the co-operation of VIPs; all form the parts of the celebration giving colors and
variety to the festivals. However, it is important that one view a festival in positive
light. Such festivals are also a nice occasion to show one’s love and affection and
make friendship; and bring goodwill to oneself from others and as also to show regard
and respect to one’s elders and priests. In Dree festival season of the Apa-Taniis
one’s choicest beverage or other kind is gifted to one’s favored elders especially
to priests as a token of love, regard and respect which would bring true blessings
from them in return.
These festivals are also a suitable occasion to invite favored guests to not only
in festival celebration ground but also in one’s house as a token of love, regard,
good will and friendship. It would be worthwhile to mention that these festivals
are an appropriate occasion to learn/display social interaction/integration habit,
‘financial, human resource or material management’ skill, organizing ability and
oratory, leadership or team-spirit quality. Besides, such festivals are a good occasion
to impress people or individual/s of one’s choice in a suitable way. Also such festivals
are a nice time to spend one’s un-accounted black money for social purpose. Above
all, the festivals offer a golden opportunity to show one’s honesty and social mindedness/heartedness
nature. Moreover, in such festivals, it provides a very good occasion to test one’s
entrepreneurial skill and earn a few bucks with all dignity. Interesting but true,
although alcoholic beverages of all tastes flow like water for all people during
the festive celebrations but rarely there has been any instance of untoward incidents
or law and order problem which may be because of good values cherished inside the
heart of Arunachalee tribesmen. Last but not the least, these festivals offer an
opportune occasion to celebrate properly as well as rejoice so that we get blessings
from divinities and humanities for all goodness. Lastly, wish a ‘Happy coming Solung
to all’. (The writer is Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science, D.N.
Govt. College, Itanagar.)
I want to echo the suppressed voices of serving engineers of the Power department.
The high handedness in the posting of officers in the engineering departments needs
no special mention. Political leaders and the officers in fields have been rubbing
their shoulders to post the “Yes Man’ .The department officers are leaving no stone
unturned in greasing their palms to get field posting. It was heard to be in engineering
departments, but has now spilled over to other departments who can go along with
swollen pockets. No leader or an administrator can do away this practice, since the
corrupt genes passes on to the progeny. But a man of conviction and discipline may
to some extend put a valve to regulate the management gurus who are most of the time
out of station oiling the political leaders and Big Bosses of the concerned departments.
Here the public leaders are urged to give a deep thought on the transfers and postings
of Engineers in particular. Despite being ‘Law abiding’ and ‘God Fearing’ as everyone
claims, but often failed to act as per rules. Many officers are in planning since
appointment/promotion. They also have the right to experience the work of field posting.
Judging someone’s ability by placing an officer in planning has no justification.
One should be given tenure to test his or her experiences. It is seen that, favouritism
and nepotism has no substitute. Precisely, many engineers feel that it is their birthright
to hold a field posting place till the last breath. To this our leaders and bosses
in the secretariat gives undue favor by over riding the rules framed by them. It
has become just like the family’s affairs. A suggestion to this will fit the best.
Any engineer/officer who has been in field posting for the last three years (Maximum)
should invariably be given planning post and those engineers who have remained deprived
of field posting should be given field posting without a second thought. The suggestion
implies, there should be rotational posting of engineers from planning to site and
vice-versa. Only to be brought to open is ‘note sheets’ in favor of hypocratic officers
requesting the concerned ministers to drop a word ‘Approved’.
But, this time as is heard, things are not to be as what it used to be. The young
energetic minister (power), who is known to be just and calculative, is not going
to put his pen without ascertaining the past records of any officer. All officers
are anticipating a change to emerge after the present minister power took over the
rein. Lets wait and watch how he delivers. Justice will definitely prevail.

A protest letter
Apropos news item published in your esteemed daily on dated 11th July 2011 under
the heading “GWS Peace Team Submit Recommendations to Government on Aalo Issue” wherein
excluding other matters a report has been made that “taking the advantage of the
opportunity of GWS’s first meeting with the Chief Minister, Jarbom Gamlin, the President
and Secretary General, GWS raised the issue regarding the pending issue of Lower
Siang District creation in the foothills of West and East Siang Districts, affected
by the unsettled interstate boundary dispute with Assam” as reported, to this matter,
the rank and file of Basar Area Students’ Union (BASU) on behalf of people of 29
Basar A/C strongly oppose the move of GWS. If it is so, this time again the present
incumbents of GWS have made a high handedness on the issue, extra constitutional,
a blunder mistake and an attempt to dilute the already decided policy of the government
after creation of a High Power Committee (HPC) on the issue.
As it is known to each and every Arunachalees that for the newly created Lower Siang
District and the following subsequent controversies, for final demarcation of its
administrative jurisdictions and boundaries, selection of Headquarters and for finding
out an amicable and permanent solution on the issue, the previous Government under
the leadership of former HCM late Dorjee Khandu had already created a HPC on dated
24th December 2010 for which we the concerned areas are eagerly waiting for its
Moreover, the GWS must also remember that the areas falling under 29 Basar A/C is
also a part and parcel of the newly created Lower Siang District and an area of concern
for the said HPC. The differences are not over the extents of boundaries for the
newly created district but in the HQ issue only for which we are still optimistic
that a day will come soon when every party on the matter will cooperate, develop
mutual understandings and accept the realities based on not utopian ideas but on
facts. However, it is another thing that some parts are not interested to join the
district on their own genuine grounds and we can’t compel for it also. It is well
up to this level that they had appraised the new HCM about the said pending issue
but one must remember that the creation of HPC is the ultimate, good for all and
best for its established purpose which is due to start its job. Hence, where is the
point of GWS to again review afresh a new chapter of controversies by raising the
pending issue of Lower Siang District creation in the foothills of West and East
Siang Districts only? This act is nothing but an attempt to ignite the differences
of the concerned areas, widen the gaps, closing the doors of dialogues and undermining
the sentiments and aspirations of a major chunk of Galos inhibiting in 29 Basar A/C
which comprise a major portion of present West Siang District. Rather, leaving the
past and egos far behind one and all should work for clearing the misunderstandings,
bridging the gaps, draw a consensus and bring an amicable solution on the issue for
development of all. As one have to learn from mistakes and successes and also know
this fact that any society or organization is not supreme, above the law and the
people as it is the people for which such societies and laws are established. One
should remember that such society is means to an end but not an end in itself.
Therefore, through this open letter, we strongly register our protest on the move
and hope the GWS will refrain from further mishandling, will not enhance complicacies
and play with the sentiments and tolerances of the Galos of 29 Basar A/C else we
will have no option but to start our next fourth phase of democratic protests against
GWS in days to come.
At the same time, while highly welcome Jarbom Gamlin as the new Chief Minister of
our state after the death of our beloved leader late Dorjee Khandu, this has arisen
a new ray of hope for the early solution on the said pending issue for the development
of all. Hope the new Government which is believed, expected and claiming to be the
torch bearer of the previous late Dorjee Khandu led Government will keep the promise
of the departed soul and complete one of his long cherished and unfinished dream
by creating Lower Siang District as per recommendations of the HPC at the earliest.
Pushing the pro-capitalist development policies
The Exit of Mr. Jairam Ramesh, from the Ministry of Environment & Forest, speaks
volumes about the UPA - II Government's aggressive agenda of pushing forward it's
pro-capitalist development policies at the expense of poor man's land and resource.
Unlike his predecessors, who were least interested in conservation of the environment,
Ramesh had tried to do some justices to his portfolio. He had succeeded in proving
that his Ministry was not a "rubber stamp", which was reviled so during the past
Recently he had cautioned that, the environment clearance should not be used as a
license for forcible acquisition of land which was a pro-people statement welcomed
by all of us. Perhaps this statement had earned ire from the bigwig of the Government,
which forced him to relegate his post, in which he was deeply involved. we'll be
missing the green crusader.

Check the fees
Apropos the letters regarding exorbitant B.Ed fees in your, I would like to highlight
few words in regard to mushrooming growth of private B.Ed colleges in the state.
There are only three B.Ed colleges recognized by the National Council For Teachers
Education [NCTE] in the state viz. Hills College of Teacher Education, Rajiv Gandhi
University and Doying Guming college. But today B.Ed course in Doying Guming College
is non-functional. Most of the colleges are not recognized by NCTE. Besides, the
infrastructure of the college and recruitment of faculty members is not as par the
norms of NCTE. Demanding exorbitant admission fee too is in contrary to norms of
NCTE. Hence, the state govt should have check on exorbitant fee for educated unemployed
youth of the state.

Give us a chance too
B.Ed (Appearing) candidates would like to appeal Director of Secondary Education
to allow the B.Ed (appearing) candidates for the written examination of recently
advertised Senior Teachers (ST) posts. After doing post graduation we opted for B.Ed
in order to become a Senior Teacher one day but rejecting our application forms for
this small ground means losing our hopes to become a Senior Teacher one day.
We believe in our present day education reformer of Arunachal Pradesh, Education
Minister Bosiram Siram that he will surely give a chance to us to appear in the written
examination of the Senior Teachers Post. Therefore
we earnestly request the Director of Secondary Education (DSE) and our Education
Minister to give a chance to us for appearing in the written examination of Senior
Unemployed B.Ed (Appearing) Candidates (on email)
All email and surface mails must be accompanied with contact numbers and full postal
