who entered Itanagar with a mission of spreading peace and promote brotherhood, was
in for surprise when he found out that Arunachalees -- children and aged alike,
“I am really surprised to see the people, particularly the kids speaking Hindi. It
has broadened the spirit of brotherhood and nationalism,” says Masih.
Masih, 63, had started his journey on bicycle to promote peace and brotherhood across
the country on January 20, 2009.
He has already travelled through Leh, Ladakh, Bihar, Uttarakhand, Haryana, Punjab,
UP, Himachal Pradesh, West Bengal, Sikkim and North-eastern region of the India and
neighbouring Bhutan and Nepal. He entered Arunachal Capital on May 5 last.
The bad news is that the peace messenger could not visit the whole of state capital
as he has been unwell from the day he landed here. He has been forced to abandon
his plan to visit Bomdila and Tawang. However, he had visited Vijaynagar and Miao
area of Arunachal.
Determined to promote peace, unity and integrity, the cyclist is planning now to
accomplish his mission by visiting Bihar, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Rajasthan,
Maharashtra, Gao, Tamil Nadu, Kerala and other remaining states and if possible
Pakistan and Bangladesh in neighbourhood. He showered praises to the police and administration
who extended helping hand in the time of need.

and the Nation; they should not be lured by the unproductive activities and always
concentrate in innovative and creative ideas for the benefit of nation.” He, however,
expressed anguish over the uncontrolled price rise in almost all the essential commodities.
“The common people are suffering a lot due to ineffective policy and inept handling
of financial matters by the authorities in the country,” he said.

MIAO, May 30: Zoo Authority of India has provisionally granted recognition to Mini
Zoo, Miao under Section 38 H of the Wildlife Protection Act for a period up to October
31, 2014 subject to compliance with some directives.

Zoo Authority also emphasized on submission of Master Plan for alternate site of
zoo with ample provisions for the animals.

Mini Zoo can be prepared and submitted to the Zoo Authority of India (ZAI), officials

the zoo are in pathetic condition as the area is too small and it needs urgent shifting
to a safer and hygienic site, far from the township.
To arrive at a final solution, the Field Director has called a meeting on June 5
where representatives from different sections of society have been invited. The Singpho
Development Society has welcomed the recognition and has assured every support in
finding a suitable land for the puspose.

Foothills have run out of option
I would like to highlight the indispensable choice faced by the people of the foothills
living in the Arunachal-Assam boundary following the various incidents of atrocities
that have appeared in the news.
Our hope was that one fine day Arunachal would hearten a new strategy for the comrades
who have been struggling out-and-out for ages not only for the boundary of Arunachal
Pradesh but for the profound sentiments attached to the territory of the hill tribes.
The fact that makes it very unfortunate is that time and again any policy for our
upliftment is arrogated by a torrent of ridicule and politics from within the people
of Arunachal who have no concern for our sweat whatsoever.
We have realised that we have ended up fighting a frontier in the either side! Under
the circumstances, who shall we consider as friends and who the foe? Unable to identify
our foes within, the choice that we are offered to is to befriend the perceptible
adversary and put an end to the unending futile struggle for a nation that was never
Why sacrifice our lives for the countryside that never acknowledges our presence?
The world is a global village now. And fortunate of being the citizens of country
known as India recognised by the world, we have assumed that there is no such thing
as Assam-Arunachal Boundary and will therefore, authenticate all our traditional
territory to any party within the Union of India that recognises and confirms our
Our fate of assimilation of the tribal minorities into the mainstream is imminent
as the Bengal Frontier Act of 1873 known as the Inner Line Act is in effect nonexistent
in the stretch where it is most needed. The inner Line Act has become a piece of
scrap and therefore, should be done away with so that the circumstances that we are
in could be experienced by everyone.
The outdated and irrelevant traditional prejudice against the Non-Arunachali, the
grounds which induced the enactment of the Inner Line Act, will have to be abandoned
beginning with the “opening up” of our territory under our disposal.
This is the step that would certainly radicalise our traditional perspective and
traditional dealings which would be characterised by a great deal of adverseness
to the existing convention. This would also certainly be immune of the petty politics
of the indifferent Government and claptraps/ scorn of satirical populace of Arunachal
While enduring the unceasing negligence of the foothills by the various Governments
of Arunachal Pradesh, we the people of the foothills have run out of all options
and have lost all hope on Arunachal Pradesh. We have understood that our circumstances
are ridiculed and politicised!
Humiliated and bruised, the choice that has been thrust upon the people of the foothills
henceforth is to reconsider our pointless patriotism as proud citizens of the Arunachal
New Deka Village
Open letter to the Chief Minister
The Allopathic doctorsworking under NRHM on contractual basis have been trying to
get an appointment with you but failed miserably. We understand you are a busy man
and doing very good for our state. So ,we are trying to reach you through this letter.
Hope our grievances are well received.
28 Medical Officers (Allopathy), previously working on contractual basis under NRHM,
have been regularized vide order no. MDEV-2011/207 dated Itanagar the 3rd April 2012.
Similarly Dental and Ayush doctors have also been regularized through similar orders.
So, we had 70+ medical officers regularized recently through various orders which
were, we don’t know for what reason, not published in any of the dailies.
And that shockingly we have been left out of that list. Some of the doctors who have
been regularised are even junior to us in the date of joining the jobs. The reason
for which is not known to us. We are suspecting foul play. We had approached the
Minister and the Secretary, Health and Family welfare. Though they had assured us
verbally on several occasions and the Minister even recommended in written, but it
turns out that the remaining vacancies numbering 50 have been advertised through
the APPSC for open competition vide No.PSC-R/11/2012 dated 22nd May 2012.
Since we are lone doctors posted at our respective medical setups in remote locations,
we are bound to serve the public 24x7 even after duty hours for attending to medical
emergencies. So we are practically left with very little time to study for competitive
exams. It should be understood that seeing our plight, the future generation of young
doctors will be deterred from serving in remote places in contract.
Through this letter we would also like to question the APDA demand for stopping departmental
regularization atleast at this moment. Because ,as per their demand we are left no
where. We are twelve doctors currently left under NRHM. Do they want us to quit NRHM
and sit for the preparation? Should we not be encouraged and awarded for our willingness
to work in places where very few would like to serve. This should be understood that
it is also for this lack of willingness to work in remote rural areas that, the GOI
is contemplating introducing Bachelor of Rural Medicine as a course which is being
opposed vehemently by the medical fraternity. Some of us have already served 3-4
years whereas some of the recently regularized doctors have served just for few
months. How is that fair? On asking why we got left out, we were questioned in return
why didn’t we join the group? The group? We were shocked to hear this from such
learned individuals. If this is how regularization is done in our state ,well, we
have a group now. Instead of their demand, APDA should have questioned the pick and
choose method applied here to regularize the in service doctors because it is this
method that has hurt even APDA in multiple occasions. But yes this is not the first
time it has happened. So we also request APDA seniors to understand that a great
injustice had been done to us and support us. And we also request other organizations
and unions to shout for us if they think we have been abused.
Last but not the least we were from the beginning not in favour of going to court
because we love our colleagues who are very happy now and who also deserved to be
rewarded. We only want us also to be appreciated for our share of service to the
state and its people. We also demand our posts to be regularized. Somebody has done
wrong, you can do it right. We will apply again for an appointment, please meet us.
Let serenity prevail
Nestled in beautiful hill top of Itanagar, the Siddhart Vihar Monastery is one of
the most beautiful and sacred place of worship. People throng there not only for
worship but due to lack of good family recreational park.
But the worrying factor is that the beautiful place has become a favourite hunt of
alcoholic and drug abusers and practice ground for dare devil youths to perform acrobatic
stunts on their bikes. Echoing of screeching sound disrupt the tranquillity of the
monastery. Infused with alcohol, youths don’t hesitate to eve tease young girls.
Therefore it is my earnest request to capital administration to immediately take
steps to control the nuisances and take precaution to prevent any untoward incident
in this sacred place.
Spare some time
Through your esteemed daily newspaper, I would like to convey my message to our respected
local MLA and higher authority of BSNL regarding the never ending ongoing network
problem of Ramacamp area of Dirang circle. Since many years the condition of network
is miserable and it is getting worse by the day. People have to travel a long distances
by taxi in order to get a signal! Talking without any disturbances will be a dream
come true. So it’s my humble request to the higher authority to give some of their
precious time for the welfare of their public for whom they have appointed.
All email and surface mails must be accompanied with contact numbers and full postal
