25 Years of Statehood of Arunachal Pradesh


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 29 , 2012           10.45 P.M.

During my childhood , I had known a part my country , which was called NEFA . It came to national prominence during the India – China War of 1962 . Nathu La Pass and NEFA [ North East Frontier Agency ] became household names and our concern for this far off and neglected part of India was so great that we felt that we all are resident of NEFA . This erstwhile NEFA is now known as Arunachal Pradesh .

Before India – China war , I used to know only one province of North East India and it was Assam . Assam was a huge state of India in 1950 . Barring Manipur and Tripura , all the other provinces of present day North East India including NEFA were part of Assam . Map posted below bears testimony to this .

Political boundary of Assam in the 1950s.

During British era this whole region was rules as a part of Bengal Presidency . Province of Assam came into being in 1874 . NEFA came into being in 1955 , though it was part of Assam .  It ceases to exist now . NEFA is now re-christened as Arunachal Pradesh and came into being on February 20 , 1987 as a state of India . Itanagar is the state capital .

So in a nutshell from 1954 to 1972 NEFA was part of Assam . On January 20 , 1972 it was separated from Assam and became Union Territory . On February 20 , 1987  it became a state of India . So it completed 33 years as Union Territory and it now completes 25 years as a state .

Present day Arunachal Pradesh is divided into 17 districts for administrative purposes .

Simla Agreement between British and Tibet in 1913 – 1914 established the boundary line between present day Arunachal Pradesh of India and Tibet . Sir Henry MacMohan drew up 890 km long MacMohan Line as the border between British India and Outer Tibet . Chinese representative had no problem at that time but now China refuses to accept MacMohan Line and claims all of Arunachal Pradesh as her own province .

The Survey of India had published a map in 1937 showing MacMohan Line as the official boundary . Even if you try to forget all the mythological links of present day Arunachal Pradesh with Mahabharat and it being the abode of MahaRishi Parashuram and it being the mythical kingdom of Kundinpur , which belonged to Rukmini’s father and it being the place , where Krishna Bhagwan came and married Rukmini , still the fact remains that from 1937 to 2012 , Arunachal Pradesh has 75 years of existence with India . If you consider the signing of Simla Accord between British India and Tibet in 1913 – 1914 , then this existence extends to 99 years .

In February 2012 , Arunachal Pradesh completed 25 years as a province of India . Irrespective of what China says , Arunachal has its links with India since Mahabharat days . And God willing next year Arunachal Pradesh will complete 100 years of its existence with India .

World of Designer Suits


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER  25, 2012           00.20 A.M.

I was obsessed with suits since my childhood days . But I did not have any . During my childhood I had Sweaters , Chester and Jerkins as my winter – wears . I used to wear Coats also but they were rare . I have very early memories of woolen coats [ now known as Jackets ] , but Jerkins and Sweaters were my most favourite winter – wears .

I had proper suits at the time of my marriage . I got 3 suits stitched for myself and used to feel like a prince . Little did I realize that my so-called 3 suits were merely a blot on the name of suits .

When I came to Mumbai and settled here , I bought my first proper suit . It was Kuoton . Later on I got a designer for myself . His name is Sheikh and now he cuts suits for me and at least now I can claim that I have some fine suits in my wardrobe .

But the world of designer suits is very much different . In the world of designer suits , there are certain names , which stand out . James Bond is always associated with Savile Row Suits . In Great Britain Savile Row still reigns supreme .

But slowly the scenario changed and now Italy sets the world standard in suits . Giorgio Armani and Canali easily symbolized the best in Italian suits . Brioni , Zegna and Kiton are other names of repute .

In the September 09 , 2012 issue of  Hindustan Times Brunch , I read Mr. Vir Sanghvi’s article about Canali Suits and was tempted to write my encounter with suits . It is astonishing to know that Canali’s started stitching suits in a village called Lombardy in Italy in 1934 and the third generation of Canalis are  still doing the business with same passion and keeping the flag high .

I wont be able to buy a designer suit in near future but like famous watches which I intend to own , I would love to order a Made to Measure Canali suit at least once in my lifetime .

Hoping to happen it soon !

Dinesh Thakur : The Final Curtain Call


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER  23, 2012           11.55 P.M.

An iconic figure of the world of Hindi theatre , Dinesh Thakur , died on September 20, 2012 at the age of 65 due to kidney failure .

Born , brought up and educated in Delhi , he moved to Bombay [ now Mumbai ] and started working in films . During his 40 year-long career , he acted in films like ; ” Mere Apne ” [ 1971 ] , ” Anubhav ” [ 1971 ] , ” Rajnigandha ” [ 1974 ] , ” Kalicharan ” [ 1976 ] , ” Karm ” [ 1977 ] , ” Ghar ” [ 1978 ] , ” Meera ” [ 1979 ] , ” Griha Pravesh ” [ 1979 ] , ” The Burning Train ” [ 1980 ] , ” Aaj Ki Awaz ” [ 1984 ] and ”  Fiza ” [ 2000 ] .

He also starred in TV serials like ; ” Shanti ” [ 1994 ] and ” Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi ” [ 2000 ] .

But his main work was in the field of Hindi theatre . He established his theatre group ” Ank ” in 1976 and produced & directed plays like ; ” Hai Mera Dil ” , ” Azar Ka Khwab ” , ” Tughlaq ” , ” Baqi Itihas ” , ” Pagla Ghoda ” , ” Suno Janmejaya ” , ” Jaat Hi Poochho Sadhu Ki ” , ” Khamosh ! Adalat Jaari Hai ” , Kamla ” , ” Adhe Adhure ” , ” Rakt-Beej ” , ” Mahabhoj ” and ” Jin Lahore Nai Dekhya ” .

Play - Jin Lahore Nai Dekhya

Play – Jin Lahore Nai Dekhya

He won Filmfare Best Story Award for ” Ghar “ in 1979 .

I am lucky that I had a personal relationship with Mr. Dinesh Thakur . I approached him for work during my struggling days . He was kind enough to give me roles in two plays . They were ” Azar Ka Khwab ” and ” Tughlaq ” . I got much exposure in stage craft while working with him . Apart from being a wonderful director , he used to design his sets also . I particularly remember sets of his play ” Tughlaq ” .

Even after I stopped working with him , I kept on bumping into him quite often . Last I met him in 2011 in the house of a student during Ganapati festival . He was looking frail and was not keeping well but he greeted me warmly . Little did I realize that I was meeting him for the last time . One year later during this Ganapati in 2012 , he is gone forever .

Rest In Peace sir ! You taught me some finer points in acting and stage craft . It is sad that one more titan is lost forever . Going to Prithvi Theatre will never be same again .

Verghese Kurien : ” Utterly Butterly …. ” Milkman


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 17 , 2012           00.40 A.M.

It is a unique example . It is very rare . It doesn’t happen very often that the man who created the brand was eclipsed by it . Amul became more famous than its creator Dr. Verghese Kurien . Amul baby became a part and parcel of our lives .

Known as Milkman of India , Dr. Verghese Kurien , died on September 09 , 2012 at the age of 90 . He was father of The White Revolution in India . He was the initiator of the Operation Flood and he founded the largest milk cooperative movement in the world , known as Amul . It is considered World’s Biggest agricultural Development Programme . He is solely responsible in making India the largest milk producer country of the world , though few years before his advent , India was a milk deficient nation . After his arrival on the scene , India even surpassed United States of America in milk production .

Gujarat Co-Operative Milk Marketing Federation was owned and managed by farmers and run by professions . As the founding chairman of the GCMMF , Kurien was instrumental in creation and success of the Amul brand of dairy product .

English: Amul has spurred the White Revolution...

Amul has spurred the White Revolution of India, which has made India the largest producer of milk and milk products in the world. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I came to know about his work when I saw ” Manthan ” [ 1976 ] , a film directed by Shyam Benegal . It was a novel experience . In stead of a regular producer , this film was funded by the 5 Lakh members of the GCMMF . They each contributed INR 2.00 each and thus funded the film . It won critical acclaim and even won 3 National Awards . It had brilliant performances by Naseeruddin Shah , Smita Patil , Girish Karnad , Amrish Puri and Anant Nag . I , for the first time , noticed the performance of Kulbhushan Kharbanda in the film . Film’s title song ” Mero Gaam Kathaparey ……………” , sung by Preeti Sagar , still haunts me . In 1976 it was the official entry of India for the Academy Awards .

Manthan

Dr. Verghese Kurien was awarded Padma Shri in 1965 , Padma Bhushan in 1966 and Padma Vibhushan in 1999 by the government of India .

It is sad that during his last years Dr. Kurien was ousted from the organisation , which he founded and nurtured ,  by a unscupulous colleague . In 2006 he was forced to quit the post of  Chairman of GCMMF . He resigned and retired .

I deeply mourn his death . Farewell milkman ! You changed the definition of our quintessential milkman .

जरावा जनजाति अंडमान और पान – भारतीय मानसिकता

विदुर [कमल नयन चतुर्वेदी] द्वारा 17 जनवरी, 2012 को पोस्ट

मुंबई – महाराष्ट्र – भारत 17 जनवरी, 2012 ०२.४० AM

के अलावा हिंदुओं , मुसलमान, ईसाई, यहूदी और पारसी भारत animist आदिवासी आबादी का एक बड़ा हिस्सा भी है. अंडमान और निकोबार द्वीप समूह के एक बड़े आदिवासी आबादी है, उनमें से कुछ भी कर रहे हैं पूर्व ऐतिहासिक. इन आदिवासी जनजातियों के कुछ लुप्तप्राय घोषित किया गया है. इसका मतलब यह है कि वे विलुप्त होने के कगार पर हैं.

English: Map of the Nicobar and Andaman Islands.अंडमान एवं निकोबार द्वीप समूह के मानचित्र

जरावा जनजाति अंडमान और निकोबार द्वीपसमूह के सबसे लुप्तप्राय जनजातियों के एक है. वहाँ सिर्फ 240 जरावा हैं. यह अंडमान और निकोबार द्वीप समूह के कारण प्रशासन उन्हें लुप्तप्राय जनजातियों की घोषणा की है और अपनी पहचान और संस्कृति के संरक्षण के लिए कई कल्याणकारी योजनाओं के शुरू.

पिछले हफ्ते कुछ पर्यटकों को फिल्माया एक वीडियो से पता चला है, जो है कि जरावा महिलाओं को भोजन के लिए नाच रहे हैं. जब खबर सार्वजनिक हो गया वहाँ जबरदस्त सार्वजनिक चिल्लाहट था. कई मुख्यधारा चैनलों की कतरनों के किया जाता है और वे क्रोधित थे कि जरावा इस नृत्य के द्वारा अपमानित थे – के लिए – खाद्य अधिनियम और अधिनियम की कि फिल्माने के अमानवीय और असंवेदनशील था. जांच के लिए मांगों को उठाया और अंडमान और निकोबार द्वीप समूह के प्रशासन को तुरंत जांच के आदेश दिए.

जरावा नृत्य वीडियो की दृष्टि blurred टाइम्स पर अब पता चला

खाद्य के लिए जरावा नृत्य के दृष्टि धुंधला

अंडमान और निकोबार द्वीपसमूह लुभाते हुए सुंदर हैं. नीला समुद्र, सांस – हरियाली लेने और आदिम परिवेश शब्दों से परे हैं.

अंडमान द्वीप समूह

सूर्यास्त और सूर्योदय भी पर्यटकों को आकर्षित. इस प्राचीन और कुंवारी सौंदर्य बेहोश शहरीकरण से संरक्षित किया जाना है. ये पर्यावरण के प्रति संवेदनशील और नाजुक सौंदर्य बेलगाम आधुनिकीकरण के लिए खुला नहीं हो सकता. पूर्व – ऐतिहासिक जंगलों के लिए कंक्रीट का जंगल बन नहीं की अनुमति दी जानी चाहिए.

अंडमान में सूर्यास्त

अंडमान एवं निकोबार द्वीप समूह की एक समुंदर का किनारा

हम आदिवासियों के लिए एक नीति है. यह उनकी सुरक्षा के लिए और अपनी परंपरा और संस्कृति के संरक्षण के लिए कहता है. आदिवासी संस्कृति के संरक्षण के इस मुद्दे तो झगड़े का है कि शुरू में मैं समाचार चैनलों के विभिन्न एंकर के विचारों से बह गया था. 15 जनवरी, 2012 के भारत के टाइम्स , मैं एक कॉलम “Swaminomics, स्तंभकार श्री स्वामीनाथन Anklesaria अय्यर द्वारा लिखित पढ़ें. श्री अय्यर स्तंभ के लिए धन्यवाद, इस मुद्दे पर मेरे विचार अब स्पष्ट है.

हम हमारे आदिवासी संस्कृति की रक्षा करने की जरूरत नहीं है. हम चाहिए और हमारे लुप्तप्राय आदिवासी आबादी की रक्षा करने के लिए कोशिश करनी चाहिए. लेकिन उन्हें निगरानी वातावरण में रखने संरक्षण नहीं है.मैं जरावा आदिवासियों की कुछ तस्वीरें पोस्ट कर रहा हूँ. देखो इन जरावा पुरुषों और महिलाओं और फिर तय:

एक जरावा

एक जरावा

जरावा

मेरे हिसाब से हमारे आदिवासी आबादी मुख्यधारा के साथ मिश्रण करने के लिए अनुमति दी जानी चाहिए. वे अध्ययन के लिए, एक सभ्य जीवन जीने के लिए प्रोत्साहित किया जाना चाहिए. वे उचित दवा के हकदार हैं और वे हर सही करने के लिए सभी आधुनिक सुविधाओं है. बस पोर्ट ब्लेयर, अंडमान एवं निकोबार द्वीप समूह की राजधानी की तस्वीर को देखो:

पोर्ट ब्लेयर के एक बाजार

पोर्ट ब्लेयर के मेन रोड

पोर्ट ब्लेयर के एक महानगर नहीं है, यह नई दिल्ली, मुंबई या बेंगलुरु की तरह नहीं है. लेकिन निश्चित रूप से यह सभी आधुनिक सुविधाओं के साथ एक हलचल शहर है. अंडमान एवं निकोबार द्वीप समूह के आदिवासी आबादी की शर्त के साथ इस तुलना:

एक जरावा परिवार

एक जरावा युगल

यह है नहीं अमानवीय पूर्व की आदिम हालत में हमारे आदिवासियों रखने के लिए ऐतिहासिक दिन है? यह तर्क दिया है कि उन्हें नागरिक समाज को उजागर उनके अस्तित्व के लिए हानिकारक होगा. अंडमान और निकोबार द्वीप समूह के कुल भूमि क्षेत्र 6496 किमी दूर है. 2011 की हाल की जनगणना के आंकड़ों के अनुसार कुल जनसंख्या 3,79,944 है वहाँ केवल अंडमान द्वीप समूह में 5 जनजातियों. वे कर रहे हैं, ग्रेट अंडमानी, जरावा, Jangil, Onge और Sentinelese. उनकी कुल संख्या 7,000 है. निकोबार द्वीप समूह में केवल 2 जनजातियां हैं. वे कर रहे हैं, निकोबारी और Shompens निकोबारी के कुछ शिक्षित और आधुनिक सभ्यता को उजागर किया गया है.

निकोबार द्वीप समूह के आदिवासी आबादी

बाहर सभी 572 द्वीपों में से केवल 38 लोग रहते हैं. इन 38 द्वीपों में से एक से कम से कम एक दर्जन आदिवासी आबादी के किसी तरह का है. घड़ी नहीं रख सकते हैं हम उन पर और उन्हें शोषण से बचाने के लिए? के आदिवासियों को उत्तर – पूर्व भारत में अच्छी तरह से कर रहे हैं शिक्षित. वे आधुनिक संस्कृति को उजागर किया गया है. वे सभी आधुनिक trappings के साथ शहरों में रहते हैं. वे गायब हो जाते हैं और नहीं विलुप्त हो गया था. वास्तव में वे अधिक जड़ें हैं और अभी भी उनकी पहचान और संपन्न जातीय संस्कृति की रक्षा. शिक्षित और शहर – केंद्रित अरुणाचल प्रदेश, नागालैंड, मणिपुर, मेघालय, मिजोरम और त्रिपुरा के जनजातीय लोग आधुनिक, अच्छी तरह से कर रहे हैं. ऐतिहासिक आदिम शर्तों वे अपने पूर्व में नहीं रहते. फिर भी उनकी आदिवासी संस्कृति बरकरार है, वास्तव में यह और अधिक मजबूत है.

तो आदिवासी संस्कृति को खोने का दलदली गलत है. यदि हम जोर देकर कहते हैं कि अंडमान और निकोबार द्वीप समूह के आदिवासियों कुंवारी और आदिम संरक्षण में रखा जाना चाहिए, तो हम एक चिड़ियाघर के जानवरों के रूप में इलाज कर रहे हैं. मैं पूरी तरह से श्री स्वामीनाथन Ankalesaria अय्यर के साथ सहमत हैं कि इस चिड़ियाघर मानसिकता को जारी रखने की अनुमति नहीं होनी चाहिए. हमारा संविधान हमें देता है सही करने के लिए काम करते हैं, सही और वोट के लिए शिक्षा का अधिकार है. एक यहूदी बस्ती में इन trbals रखने और उन्हें आधुनिक सभ्यता से दूर रखने की कोशिश कर रहा करके उन्हें उनके मौलिक अधिकारों से वंचित है. बेशक, उन्हें भोजन के लिए नृत्य और अधिनियम फिल्माने अमानवीय है. लेकिन किसी भी एक जवाब है कि भोजन के लिए इन जरावा tantalized किया जा सकता कर सकते हैं? भोजन के लिए एक अच्छी तरह से खिलाया आबादी का लालच नहीं किया जा सकता है. तो यह स्पष्ट है इन जरावा वंचित कर रहे हैं. वे भूखा कर रहे हैं. और इस तरह पर्यटकों के लालच थे.

एक जरावा बाल

एक जरावा बालिका

एक जरावा मैन

जरावा

एक प्राकृतिक वास में आदिवासियों

ऊपर पोस्ट तस्वीरें सब कुछ बताता है. इन आदिवासियों में बुनियादी सुविधाओं की कमी है. वे गरीब और भूखा हैं. वे तरस दो सभ्य भोजन एक दिन के लिए हो सकता है और वे कहते हैं कि नहीं हो रही है चाहिए. तो वे जब पर्यटकों ने परीक्षा में दिया. भोजन के लिए ईस्ट इंडिया हर कोई जवाब जानता है – किसी भी एक नगा, खासी, गारो, एक Jayantia या उत्तर से एक मिजो प्रलोभित करने के लिए कर सकते हैं? यह एक फर्म नहीं है.

तो एक ही इलाज अंडमान और निकोबार द्वीप समूह भी आदिवासियों के लिए फायदेमंद होगा. शिक्षित, अच्छी तरह से खिलाया आदिवासी आबादी है, जो अच्छी तरह से कर रहे हैं – मुख्य धारा के साथ एकीकृत हम एक आधुनिक, अच्छी तरह से की जरूरत है. हम अलग आदिवासी पहचान और निगरानी, ​​नहीं एक सुनसान और ghettoized अस्तित्व को बनाए रखने की जरूरत नहीं है. निश्चित रूप से अंडमान और निकोबार द्वीप समूह के आदिवासियों को एक और नगा, मिजो, खासी या Jayantia हो सकता है.

Kokrajhar Riots & The Tyranny of Distance


MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA           SEPTEMBER 06 , 2012           12.55 P.M.

Kokrajhar in Assam is reeling under communal violence . Demography of Assam is getting changed or rather it is being changed . Assam is fast changing and changing for worst . Assam is in trouble but no one is paying attention . They say that Assam is very far off and inaccessible . So in the words of Mr. Rajdeep Sardesai ” tyranny of distance ” is the main cause of this criminal neglect . And if Assam is in trouble can other states of North East India be far behind ?

In the age of internet , when twitter , Facebook and blogs are the order of the day , is this theory ” tyranny of distance ” convincing enough ? Or is it a ploy to avoid some troublesome questions , some unpleasant truths ?

Why ” tyranny of distance ” , which is so convenient for Kokrajhar , did not apply to Gujarat ? Why even the minutest details of post Godhra riots were aired repeatedly and why gory scenes were played on the television over and over again ? If the reportage on Gujarat riots were prerogative of a journalist then Kokrajhar should also be reported . And if Assam in general and Kokrajhar in particular is too distant , then Gujarat is also not the immediate neighbour of New Delhi .

Apart from ” tyranny of distance ” theory , Mr. Rajdeep Sardesai came with another brilliant ( ? ) theory for not reporting Kokrajhar riots . He tweeted that since more that thousand people got killed in Gajarat riots and less than hundred got killed in Kokrajhar , so reporting about Kokrajhar is not that important . Can a riot be termed as important and unimportant ? Is a riot less important because less than thousand people got killed ? He did tender apology after public outcry , but his hypocrisy was there for all to see .

If Narendra Modi , the Chief Minister of Gujarat is responsible for Gujarat riots , then same yardstick should be applied to Tarun Gogoi , the Chief Minister of Assam also . And if Tarun Gogoi is not directly responsible for Kokrajhar riots , then how come Narendra Modi is guilty of Gujarat riots ?

Bodos are tribal of Assam . Landscape of Bodoland is divine . The tribal culture of Bodos are in danger . So they are up in arms against the Bangladeshi immigrants . Because of vote bank politics provincial government is not paying attention or rather ignoring the menace . And even after riots , a cover up operation is going on . Now Mr. Rajdeep Sardesai is talking about the need of sensitivity for the Assam victims but he totally forgot to maintain that sensitivity for the victims of Gujarat riots .

I am not defending Gujarat riots . No sensible person can defend such acts . But there should be one yardstick for all the acts of crime . It should not be the case of good riots and bad riots . It should not be our riots or their riots . Riots are riots and they should be condemned in equal measures and with same force and vehemence .

That is the reason I fail to understand the logic of Mr. Rajdeep Sardesai and other secular like him . I condemn their hypocrisy . There cannot be and should not be two yardsticks for the same communal ( ? ) crime . If Gujarat is still remembered , so should be Kokrajhar . If BJP is communal , so is the Congress , Indian National Congress .
