by various organizations, unions and group, the state government has decided to take

DSU thrashes army claim
ITANAGAR, Jul 22: A day after army authorities clarified that its jawan were not
involved in any illegal activities at Doimukh recently and probably acting on a tip
off, the Doimukh Students' Union (DSU) today thrashed the claim of army. In a press
release issued DSU general secretary Teri Takar stated that army is trying to shield
its jawans and therefore spreading such false theory.
“The victim Tana Karan had clearly stated that he was robbed of Rs. 7, 00,000 at
gun point by 4 army men along with other civilians on that fateful day. The statement
made by the army in the local media today does not have any iota of truth and it
is contradictory to the real facts of case,” stated Takar.
“As per the army statement, the raid was made on the pretext of some anti social
elements present within Doimukh area and the raid was carried out officially by the
army. If this is correct then why the army authority did not inform the matter to
the local police which is normal procedure for any such operation? Why no senior
rank army officer was part of team?” questioned DSU. Further they added, “If they
really intended to arrest anti social elements from Doimukh then why they flew with
the booty of Rs. 7, 00,000 ? If the raid was official one then why the army men misbehaved
with the CRPF personnel at Banderdewa Check gate when the vehicle in which they were
traveling was intercepted.”
It is clear from the fact that the 4 army personnel were involved in the case for
their personal interest and they were in no way in official duty at Doimukh on 18th
July. “We have deep respect for army but if they protect anti-social element from
their own rank, it will dent their image. They should help to ensure that guilty
are punished so that integrity of army remains intact,” continued DSU. Union has
appealed to apex student’s bodies like All Arunachal Pradesh Students' Union (AAPSU)
and All Nyishi Students' Union (ANSU) to look into the matter seriously. Union also
requested the local administration not to grant any kind of bail to the culprits
till full settlement of the case.

of ‘Buddham Saranam Gachchami’ this morning at Vivek Vihar, Itanagar as Buddhist
devotees gathered in the temple to celebrate the Satang Khao-wa.
During the discourse, the head monk of Theravada Buddhist Temple, Reverend Ratnadeepa
dwelt in length on the moral values and virtue of life. Buddhist moral precepts provide
a wholesome foundation for personal and social growth. They are practical principles
for a good life and the cultivation of virtues, he added.
Further, he said that “If we understand the objectives of sila and realize its benefits,
we will see moral precepts as an integral part of life rather than a burden.
“Buddhist moral precepts are not commandments imposed by force; they are a course
of training willingly undertaken in order to achieve a desired objective. We do not
practice to please a supreme being, but for our own good and the good of society.
As individuals, we need to train in morality to lead a good and noble life. On the
social level, we need to help maintain peace and harmony in society and facilitate
the progress of the common good. The practice of moral precepts is essential in this
regard,” he added.
Satang Khao-wa was also enthusiastically celebrated in all Theravada Buddhist inhabitants
of Lohit and Changlang districts.
Satang Khao-wa is the three-month annual retreat observed by Theravada practitioners.
Satang Khao-wa is a Tai Khampti word, it is popularly known as Vassa vaas in Pali
language. In English, Vassa is often glossed as Rains Retreat. Taking place during
the rainy season, Vassa Vaas lasts for three lunar months, usually from July to October.
For the duration of Vassa, monks and nuns remain inside monasteries and temple grounds.
In some monasteries, monks dedicate the Vassa to intensive meditation. During Satang
Khao-wa, lay Buddhist devotees visit temples and abbeys to practice as well, sometimes
adopting eight precepts for the day. (From Chow Bilaseng Namchoom)

Preparation works of golden jubilee Baane Solung - 2013 begins in full swing
ROING, Jul 22: To commemorate the 50th years of Centralized Solung Festival Celebration
since the year 1964, the Adi Community of the state led by its apex body Adi Baane
Kebang (ABK) has decided to celebrate this Golden Jubilee Celebration as a saga event
in the nomenclature of Golden Jubilee Baane Solung - 2013 at Parbuk Village, Roing,
Lower Dibang Valley District from September 4-7.
The Adi people used to celebrate Solung festival with full pomp and gaiety since
time immemorial. Before 1964, celebration of Solung used to be village specific and
period of celebration varied from village to village depending wholly on the decisions
of the village councils or Kebang. With the advancement of time and society, centralized
celebration of Solung; especially in township and in urban areas, became a necessity.
As a result, in the year 1964, for the first time in the history of Adi, the centralized
Solung celebration was conceptualized and celebrated at Roing town. All sections
of people comprising the town dwellers, the Adi students from JN College Pasighat,
Govt. School Tezu and Roing and eminent public leaders of Adi areas and nearby villages
had participated in the celebration. From then on, every year, Solung festival is
being celebrated centrally by the whole community on a particular period and place.
The Golden Jubilee Baane Solung - 2013 Celebration is being organized jointly under
the aegis of Adi Baane Kebang and Adi Cultural and Literary Society and accordingly,
Organizing Committees were formed both at Central and District Level which will be
assisted by various Sub-Committees.
Series of meetings were held in both level of the organizing committee and ground
works is being carried out in full swing to celebrate the Golden Jubilee Baane Solung
- 2013 in a befitting manner.
In view of gaping shortages of doctors, allied healthcare professionals would have
to play an increasingly prominent role in providing health services to India’s masses,
says a report released by the Public Health Foundation of India.
The report highlights the lack of a uniform approach in defining Allied Health Professionals
(AHPs), largely known as ‘paramedic’ in India and calls for correcting this perception
by standardising a comprehensive definition for AHPs, along with a defined career
pathway, salary structure and cadre formation to ensure their growth prospects.
Pointing to a considerable regulatory gap in the allied health space, the report
reasons that this is attributed to the lack of a comprehensive regulatory framework
and absence of centres for excellence or apex bodies for professional development
and training of AHPs.
It points out that a number of councils such as the Medical Council of India (MCI),
Dental Council of India (DCI) to name a few, have already been established by Government
of India for regulating the standards of education and training, as well as the
registration of practitioners in respective fields. While such bodies aim to prevent
unqualified people from practicing and also for maintain the standards of these professions,
the fact however remains that there is no central regulatory mechanism for AHPs.
It calls for standardised course duration, curricula, training methodologies and
other such components pertaining to the education and training of allied health professionals.
The Indian public health care system has limited options for employment for AHPs
that is far from being rational in its approach. The report’s authors have analysed
that given the fast-paced growth in the healthcare sector, there is a potential for
developing cadres of several new and emerging fields of AHPs.
Dictatorial leadership has no place in democratic set up
The Big mouthed self proclaimed idol of honesty and sincerity, publicity crazy individual
who claimed to have initiated all the developmental activities has again proved himself
wrong only because of his arrogant nature and mismanagement in all spheres and absolute
misuse of his official position and power.
All the readers might be confused as to whom we are referring. Our statement is against
the loud mouthed and ambitious Minister in Arunachal Cabinet Bosiram Siram, Education
Minister who is personally responsible for all the chaos that the present day people
of Pasighat are facing. The rampant corruption activities, the deteriorating law
& order scenario of Pasighat and the encouragement as bestowed to all the Encroachers/
Land grabbers and land mafias of Government Land at in and around Pasighat stands
as a testimony of his evil intentions. All his near and dear relatives is busy encroaching
Govt. land and the District Administration is a mute spectator as any action against
them means inviting self transfer to difficult and far flung areas. The transfer
and posting of his near and dear relatives and kits and kin in Pasighat and that
too awarding key post also signifies his misuse of official power and position. But
who will dare to oppose? People of Pasighat are not under any democratic set up of
governance rather the anarchic and the dictatorial attitude of our local MLA is known
by everyone but no one dare to resists as the outcome itself will be very disturbing.
We are not writing just for the sake of diminishing or character assassination of
any individual, however, the present day to day affair has compelled us to highlight
some of his wrong doing to public so that the common people knows truth.
The recent Transfer order under Education department itself shows his vindictive
attitudes towards those who defy his choices. For instance, Shri Namut Dai, President
and Governors award winner for his selfless service in the field of Human resource
development and just 9 (Nine) months left for superannuation was transferred to Aaohali
and interestingly he has undergone major surgery at Dibrugarh, Assam and the Doctors
has given written advise for not doing extensive travelling. Very interestingly,
his son Shri Otem Dai, serving as Asstt. Teacher transferred was to East Kameng District
and Daughter-In-Law Smt. Son Gete, JT also transferred to Parong. All the transfer
has been made for the simple reason and we would like to urge all the readers also
to ponder upon it with a clean mind. The reason for the transfer was Shri Sagar Dai,
the eldest son of Shri Namut Dai contested for ASM in the just concluded Panchayat
election as BJP candidate and he lost the election. Now the million dollar question
1. Can 3 (Three) members of a single family be transferred to 3 different location?
2. Can an ailing Government Servant who has just 9(Nine) months left for retirement
and with the written instruction for not undergoing extensive travelling be transferred.
There are numerous instances where the sentiments of the people were hurt by his
vindictive attitudes and unfortunately, it was never reported or publicize for the
fear of being punished. If all the people of Pasighat have to support him only, then
what is the purpose of holding an election? Being an educated legislator he should
understand that in any kind of Democratic set up, there will be certain section of
people who may not like his policy and programmes and they are bound to support someone
else, as he cannot and should not dictate. But if those people are targeted, humiliated
or punished, that policy will not and should not last long. It may survive for a
day or two but a day will come when people en mass will dictate and on that day people
like our MLA will understand and realize that the power that he is enjoying and the
elevated position through which head is held high has been gifted by we the common
people only. Instead of being thankful to us and committing to ease out our agony
and pains, governing the common people through his wimps and fancies will certainly
boomerang and on that day the people instead of sympathizing- people will celebrate
in a grand festive manner. At this juncture we would like to urge all the common
man- THE AAM ADMI to wake up from our deep slumber irrespective of our party affiliation
and unite our self as through UNITY we can change the course of HISTORY and that
should be the clarion call from everyone of us.

Primary education in Arunachal Pradesh
Through your esteemed daily I would like to share my views on primary education in
Arunachal. Arunachal’s failure to achieve universal literacy even after 50 years
of independence can be termed as shocking. The article 45 of the constitution which
is part of the directive principles of state policy, lays down that every child upto
the age of 14 years shall receive free and compulsory education.
As per present rate of growth of literacy, it would take another 50 years for the
state to achieve total literacy. More than 50 per cent of the villages in Arunachal
Pradesh still do not have a primary school. The quality of primary education is still
worse. The teacher lacks proper motivation, dedication, quality and training. They
do not go to school regularly and punctually. They are often found to be engaged
in doing some profitable business during school hours. There is no accountability,
no proper governance and administration.
Education Minister Bosiram Siram said that the day is not too far when Arunachal
would achieve 90 percent literacy rate. He also spoke about the strategy and action
plan to bring education reformation and achieve its goal in pursuit of quality education
before the starting of 2013-14 academic session.
I do not know ground reality but writing this to tell a few facts which was published
in your daily news item recently. The following are given below: 1. on 19.07.2013
(published) lack of teachers, infrastructure hamper academic activities at GHSS Muri
Mugli. 2. On 18.07.13 improve education scenario of East Siang, demand by AdiSU.
3. On 10.07.13 (published) East Kameng Social Welfare and Cultural Organization (EKSWCD)
claimed that three school principals, forty one junior and senior teachers and fifty
Assistant Teachers have been transferred from the district since twelve years but
no relievers have been sent against them so far. 4. On 18.07.13 (published) Galo
Students Union (GSU) appeals for early posting teachers at Govt.Sec.School Maro in
the greater interest of the students of the school. 5. On 22.07.13 (published) Liromoba
Circle Welfare Association president M.M Romin share on reader forum Govt. Hr.Sec.School
running without senior teacher (Humanities) for last two years and also running with
junior teacher of subjects like maths, English and social studies since last ten
years. 6. On 20.07.13 (published) AdiSU president said weak infrastructure and acute
shortage of teaching staff particularly in science stream in JNC Pasighat.
It’s all happening due to the negligence of our education higher authorities and
concerned Panchayat members, local MLAs and selfish political leaders who are main
bearers of any development activities of the areas.
I do appeal to minister of education, govt. of Arunachal, higher authorities of the
department and local public leaders to look after the matter seriously and take needful
actions. Teachers and infrastructures must be sufficient for public and student’s
community so that Arunachal can achieve 90% literacy rate in near future. Children
are an asset, and integral part of a national wealth. They are the future parents,
leaders, scientists, engineers, and makers of the history. If they remain illiterate
and un-educated what good can be expected? The children living in villages, amidst
nature, possess higher general intelligence than their counterparts in cities and
towns. They have a very close contact with nature and so have natural wisdom. Their
neglect in respect of education, health and economic well being is bound to prove
disastrous in the long run. Therefore, it is important that primary education is
made universal and compulsory for children in the age group of 6-14.

is very unfortunate for our state. It clearly signals to investors that AP is not
conducive for investment and development. We are failing as a society and as a State.
It is high time that we facilitate rather than being a hurdle to the developmental
process otherwise there is no hope for AP.
Give us some time
Through your esteemed daily we would like to share the problem of private candidate
who recently passed the class XII. We are yet to receive our original mark-sheet
from our school. This may create problem for us because admission of JN College,
Pasighat is now going to close and this college did not accept the mark-sheet obtained
through internet. I would like to request the CBSE Board to please kindly send the
original mark-sheet of private candidate at the earliest. Also request JN college,
Pasighat to give us time for admission.
