Govt to rationalize posting of teachers

ITANAGAR, Mar 12: The state's Education Department has planned for rationalizing the posting of teachers so that all schools have the required teachers as per the norms.

The process for rationalization of posting is proposed to be completed before re-opening of the schools after vacation in June this year, informed Secretary (Education) Bidol Tayeng in a release.

He informed that the Department has already initiated rationalization process by writing to concerned Deputy Commissioners to furnish the school wise deployment of teachers along with enrolment of students.

"The Department is under severe criticism for irrational distribution of teachers in schools, because of which education activities are suffering a lot in schools in remote and far flung areas," Tayeng said, while stressing the need for rationalizing the teachers' posting to ensure equitable, and demand based distribution of teachers to protect academic interest of students.

About 900 schools in interior areas are running with single teacher; whereas there are more than required numbers of teachers in schools, mostly located in Capital Complex area and district headquarters. Even, SSA teachers, who are meant for specific schools of remote areas, are being posted or attached to schools of the Capital Complex or district headquarters, the Education Secretary said.

Recently, the Department of Education had directed all the DDSEs to release all the SSA teachers attached in the schools of the state Capital and district headquarters, he said.

All the DDSEs have also been directed to confirm the re-joining of the SSA teachers in their original places of posting, Tayeng said and added that the Department has also issued instructions to all the concerned DCs to take action against the teachers, including termination from the service, of those who fail to report back to his/her original place of posting.

Tayeng also stated that the concern for unequal distribution of teachers in various schools of the state and the subsequent shortage of teachers was also raised by many members in the State Assembly during the ongoing session.

The members also spoke on the prevailing acute shortage of PGTs (ST) in Science, Mathematics and Language in the schools, which were upgraded in the last few years. The members requested the Minister Education to take steps to sanction teachers' posts against the upgraded schools of the state.

There are 3317 government schools, 2,57,445 students and 20,940  government teachers, including SSA in the state, Tayeng informed.




Symposium on corruption held at RGU

DOIMUKH, Mar 12: A symposium on the topic 'Systematic Corruption in Arunachal Society Reflects a Deeper Breakdown of Community Values' was organised at Rajiv Gandhi University's Panorama Ground on Sunday.

Held on the third day of the Arunachal Panorama celebrations, the symposium was organised with the objective 'to introduce the gradual shift of traditional values towards corrupt societal principles, and to expose the corrupt mechanism through which the contemporary society works'.

The deliberation was spearheaded by experts from different fields, such as General Secretary BJP Arunachal Chapter Jarpum Gamlin, Arunachal Times Associate Editor Tongam Rina, Chairman of Sports Authority of Arunachal Pradesh Bamang Tago, and AAPSU women's wing Convenor Bengia Mepu.

Speaking on the occasion, Tago noted that 'corruption has become the law in the state which governs every processes of the society, and there is no appropriate way to blame high-ranking bureaucrats as the mechanism of corrupt system is initiated at the ground level. This is a continuous process where the benefactor and the renderer are inter-dependent. The crisis can only be overcome by sincere will to discontinue the trend'.

'Giving is encouraging', Gamlin opined, and pressed on the importance of value-based mindset in the society.

Saying that the society has gradually lost its right values of sharing collective principles and collective good as it progressed towards modernity, he felt that there was a lack in principles and ethics in youths of today which has resulted from the lack of conviction in imbibing those values by parents and over all education system. 'In earlier times, hardworking and deserving individuals were worshipped and acknowledged by the society, but in present times, people hero worship those who have money and power', Gamlin said.

In her deliberation, Rina spoke on the systematic mechanism of corrupt society, and said that corruption is sowed with the simplest forms of favours, recommendations, and bribery. She cited examples of villages where Gaon Burahs played pivotal role in disseminating justice and worked for the community, whereas these days, this helm of society is being used for political gain. 'In this manner, social groups have been formed by individuals with deeper pockets, with no intention or manners to lead', she said.

Representing the apex students' body of the state, Mepu urged on the need to introspect before pointing fingers at others. She further added that corruption takes place with the involvement of both participants where 'One's wants is another's need'.

The silence on suicide

Monday Musing


[ Nellie N Manpoong ]

As the government attempts to improve the health scenario of the state by assuring to provide 'quality access to all', with its health schemes, introduction of high-tech machines and hospital upgrades, the question of where mental illness would stand in the list of health sector improvements lingers on.

According to the World Health Organisation, approximately one million people commit suicide each year worldwide, which is about one death every 40 seconds or 3,000 per day. It is the 10th leading cause of death globally, and the statistics continue to increase with each passing year.

Itanagar alone reported a steep increase in unnatural deaths or suicides in over a year's time. According to available records in the Itanagar Police Station, there were 14 cases of suicide in 2015. The numbers saw a high rise with 23 cases in 2016, which roughly makes two deaths in a month. The figures for 2017 currently remain at two suicides, which occurred in January.

This data does not include the five cases in 2016 and one in January 2017, registered in the Women Police Station, which only takes in cases of females that are marked under the file "abetment of suicide".

We also did not take into account the number of attempted suicide cases, because honestly, nobody wants to be jailed after a battle between life and death.

With each reported case, some preferred to conclude that the reasons were futile for most, and took to forming their own expert opinions -"Does a girlfriend mean more than family?" "What a shame that kids take their lives over the newest mobile phones", "If he had not killed himself, alcohol would certainly have", "We could've helped her, if only she'd asked" - some make crude remarks, only a handful sympathise.

People in general cannot be blamed for their lack of empathy towards victims. We could, however, attribute it to ignorance or lack of knowledge on the subject. While it is easy for almost everyone to speak of a broken leg and even several communicable diseases, mental health issues are almost always sidelined. People have been accustomed to believe that no one likes an unhappy person, and that it is essential to pull a veil over whatever is bothering us. And social media only adds to our web of "happy" lies.

Though there may be several causes that lead to suicide, like family problem, illness, unemployment, drug abuse, relationship difficulties, family history of suicide or exposure to suicidal behaviour in family, peers or media, and sudden change in economic status, Clinical Psychologist Osunam Pertin says that many people have the mentioned risk factors but are not suicidal, while others may not have any of the said problems and yet be suicidal because of their impulsive nature, attention seeking behaviour or anger.

Suicide, Pertin says, involves a combination of biological, environment and social factors. It is more or less a combination of various factors, which leads to a person trying to harm themselves.

An Indian study showed that people between the ages of 25 to 29 are most prone to committing suicide. Suicide attempts are also more common in women, the illiterate, the physically or sexually abused, and of course in those suffering from some kind of mental illness.

Anyone contemplating suicide can be identified if they are always talking about death, have signs of clinical depression, talk about feeling hopeless, helpless or worthless; if they call or visit people to say their goodbyes, behave recklessly, withdraw from everyone, stay isolated or display extreme mood swings.

Apart from being there for the person who is showing suicidal tendencies, we can also assist them to take professional help. On the other hand, if you are worried about being judged by your family and friends, there are a few good clinical psychologists at Govt Mental Health Center, Midpu(Doimukh) who offer free counselling.

Pertin, who works in the center says, "Don't underestimate the power of expressing your feelings; it can make a huge difference!"

Though people's participation is always necessary, Pertin says that this can be more easily achieved if the government establishes more mental health centers and make them more accessible, invest in research; educate and train doctors, nurses in primary care level to address mental health issues including suicide, and provide more opportunities for mental health professionals.

Will mental health issues catch attention of the government enough to spread awareness and educate public on the stigma and myth surrounding it, or will other health issues always trump over the mighty mind, which in the true sense, is the bank that lends the knowledge for a cure to all other diseases?

2-yr-old dispute solved amicably

SEPPA, Mar 12: A two-year-old dispute, which was supposed to take an ugly shape, in fact took the shape of a trendsetter which is worthy to be emulated by the tribal society.   

Two years ago, at Seppa, on 20th November, 2015, Mechori Bagang - a lady who was riding a scooter (two- wheeler) accidentally hit one Niya Tachang, who later succumbed to his injuries.

The fateful incident, which was purely accidental in nature, however, led to a tense situation, particularly for the accused and rest of the Bagang clan which she belongs to, as all the clan members had to live in an alarming atmosphere, considering the prevalence of revenge system.

However, accepting the entire incident as unfortunate and an error from the side of the accused, the Bagang Welfare Society (BWS) in an effort to bring an amicable end to the issue decided to sit for Nyele/Yallung (a customary way to solve disputes) with the Techi clan, and approached Ropo Yangfo, Nevash Gollo, Lelong Tachang and Taru Gollo as mediators.

After deliberations, on 20th December 2016, the dispute reached to an amicable solution, without any compensation and condition. On the sidelines, the Bagang clan offered to provide some amount of reparation to the victims' family.

Also, the victims' family and the Techi clan assured Bagang clan that there will be no revenge or penalties in the future, related to this matter.

On 7th January 2017, the BWS submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner of East Kameng district and East Kameng Social Welfare & Cultural Organisation (EKSWCO), briefing them about the settlement of dispute. The BWS also urged the DC and EKSWCO to acknowledge the settlement of dispute and to bring to the notice of the society, under their capacity, so that a precedent is being set, whenever such a dispute arises in the future.

We express our gratitude to the family members of late Niya Tachang and Techi clan and fully endorse their wise decision, which should be considered as trendsetter in our society having the notions of revenge and fine system, said BWS chairperson, Engineer Tafang Bagang, who also expressed gratitude to those mediators for bringing amicable solution to the critical dispute, stating that it will have a big impact in our society in the days to come.

Difficult days ahead for Congress

The result of assembly election in 5 states have come as big bonus for the ruling BJP. Party won massive mandate in UP and Uttarakhand. It is on the verge of forming government in Goa with support of smaller parties and independent MLAs. Party is also hoping to form government in Manipur. The stunning election victory is being credited to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party president Amit Shah. The duo has manage to surpass all expectation and got such massive mandate for the BJP. The UP victory is expected to lay foundation for BJP in 2019 general election.

 The result also pose serious question mark over the future of Congress party. Though party scored impressive victory in Punjab, it lost miserably in Uttarakhand and UP. Questions are being raised about leadership of party vice president Rahul Gandhi. However, problem for Congress is not only about leadership but it’s much deeper. Party is facing factional problem in almost every state. Congress leaders are more worried about their personal growth than that of the party. This is the root cause of Congress downfall. The party is also failing to shed image of being pro-Muslim and that of a corrupt party. Unless these issues are tackled Congress will never win heart of the people of India. There is vast disconnect between Congress and the people. With Narendra Modi continuing to dominate Indian politics, the road ahead looks extremely difficult for the Congress.

Letter to Education dept

Dear Editor,

Through your Esteemed daily, I would like to convey my grievances regarding the cancellation of Post matric Scholarship.

We have applied for the PMS scheme 2016-17 for availing scholarship from the Central Govt as they provide us with an amount of more than 30,000/-per annum as our scholarship through Govt.of AP.

Though I haven't availed PMS scholarship last year, yet I  have applied for same this year for the scholarship, and regarding cancellation notice (NOC) issued by the DHTE we opt to cancel the State Scholarship which is merely 9000/-per annum  and avail the Post Matric Scholarship.

Concerned department Directorate of higher and technical education       should not have an issue regarding the release of stipend. We have already given our Linked Aadhar card during filling of form on the Scholarship application.

They are creating mere excuses, tension and chaos among thousands of students studying outside the state and overall it is not possible to run and complete NOC within a short span of time.

Questionable exams in private schools

Dear Editor,

Through your esteemed daily, I would like to aware the concerned authorities and the individuals associated with, regarding some real corrupt activities that takes place during the board exams of Classes X and XII, especially when the exam centres are private schools in the state.

I have been through one. I appeared for my 12th board in 2016, where I gave the exam at a private school (undisclosed) in the capital complex. what was very shocking to me was not the fact that students cheated in the exam but the teachers and the school authorities themselves were involved too. Halfway through the exam, the teachers provide the students with compactly stapled cheat papers which are distributed. The students are allowed to bring mobile phones, even after 'thorough checking' at the entrance. The students are allowed to talk to each other and then there's so much voice, it's more like a fish market than an exam taking place. Back when I was appearing for my 12th and came across what really happens behind the scene, I was taken aback. I did my best to complain to the head authorities but nothing happened. I tried telling my friends to complain collectively but all they said was," What can you do? Everybody cheats even in board exams, students and teachers alike and everybody knows that".

The thing that concerns me the most is the fact that students attend schools, especially 'private schools' for better education or 'so they say' but after what I've seen and been through, it's more like a pathetic business to acquire more students scoring high (even if it's by cheating) to put up in the posters and advertisements and add to their laurel than providing them with true and quality education.

I don't know if the parents or guardians are aware of the fact because once I even saw a parent demanding at the time of admission that his son should pass, no matter what; who I later came to know of, failed twice appearing from a Government School.

I couldn't give my board exam with the full potential that I had. What was discerning to me was normal for others and for some 'an opportunity to score more' and maybe that's why this kind of reality is silently swept under the rug.

I know that some private school authorities and parents are aware of the fact, which I would like to sincerely request not to indulge in such malicious activities. And the students should score by their own capability. A student should gain and acquire and be taught more than enough regarding the syllabus in an academic year provided and even the students should abide by that and score by their own true potential rather than give in to corrupt ways of scoring more.

Now that 2017 board exam is just around the corner, many students might be unaware of the situation. Educational qualification should not be just about being able to pass or score high (by cheating), it should become one's asset and the knowledge should be 'gained'.

This is real serious issue and the youth of our society being introduced to the route of corruption from such a young age is concerning. Therefore, I would like to conclude my letter with a request to the Government and the concerned head authorities to control the cheating rackets that takes place during the upcoming and future board exams. And also the students not to get involved in such miserable activities.


Concerned Citizen





Dear Editor,

Why authorities are in such a hurry that they can't wait for NSP merit list generation?

We have waited this long for scholarship. Nevertheless you are giving us an additional stress with your infamous cancellation notice.

Are we enrolled to scholarship so we can cancel it at the final stage?

Are you trying to tell us not to go for central scheme?


Confused student




Give us more time

Dear Editor,

Through the columns of your esteemed daily, I would like to bring to notice a simple issue which caused a great deal of loss.

March 9, 2017, CBSE English exam for +2 students. I too appeared the same in centre Govt. Higher Secondary School, Ziro.

The 15 minutes is allotted, as per CBSE rule to the students. I asked the invigilator for it, he/she completely rejected it, and ordered us to close the question paper. Due to the lack of time, I had to leave precious mark. Even loosing 1 mark in +2 exam means a lot to us.

I am not condemning the reputed institution, whereas, I want the principal of the same said institution to look into the matter urgently as we have more exams coming up.
