Save the nature to save ourselves.



Orissa is experiencing one of the worst floods this year affecting thousands of people. Due to global warming sea-level is swelling and coastal belts are gradually going into sea. Rainy season is predicted till December this year. These changes in eco-system point to the silent storm, lying ahead. The foremost cause is deforestation. Timber mafias are cutting trees, using brand new idea under the nose of forest department.

Here is the need to spread cognizance among people to protect the woods-our natural heritage; as the tribal women of Jharsuguda has done. 50 women of Kochobahal village formed Van Suraksha Samiti (Forest Protection Committee), in wake of growing incidents of smuggling of timber by Wood Mafias, leading dense forest into barren land. Women of this group equipping themselves with lathis and traditional weapons, roam around the forest to confront the Mafias with courage. Because of these brave tribal women Mafias have almost left the woods.

They have achieved what successive governments were not able to do by spending money from the state exchequer. Extensive promotion of such missions is needed to make people understand the significance of woods in our life and to save this naturally gifted state from alarming affects of global warming.

DURING BANDHS: DESTROYING PUBLIC PROPERTY; SOME KIND OF FAISHON?

 

It was a tough time for working professionals, school-goers, and passenger coming to Bhubhneswar from other places; in recent rampage by the Engineering students of Biju Patnaik University, demanding withdrawal of Year back system. They damaged everything came in their way, halting traffic for almost one hour.

  Earlier this year conflict between Dera Saccha Sauda followers and Akal- takht staunches witnessed many lives and huge damage of Public property. Followers of   both sects confronted for almost two months , appeased only after political interference, and written apologies by Dera chief- Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh.

      Gujjar-Meena tussle over Reservation also resulted in deaths of scores and great loss of civic Property. It stopped work, inconvenienced travelers and affected supplies for essential commodities. Agitators dig railway lines, set fire to many Rajasthan State Transport buses including police stations and other private buildings.

            Two accidents in Agra – one during the execution of Saddam Hussein in which many tourists from European   countries were targeted stumbling  the tourism industry for 2- three days. In this bandh government and private bodies lost millions of rupees. Another was recently, when 4 persons of Muslim community were crushed to death by an out of control truck. Later on agitated mob set fire to many trucks and blocked the national highway for over 24 hours, paralyzing the tourism industry again.

       We, people studying in good institutions, getting standard education.

                   Is it expected to us to behave like this?

     Damaging public property and in such volumes causes inconvenience to we people only. Government imposes more taxes and fines to collect the revenue. Besides this, the people who affect most are patients going to hospitals in ambulances. Many patients die during bandhs because of road blockades.          

                        There are certain other ways to mark your protest to the government. Demagogic speeches of greedy politicians should not be followed blindly. We are privileged enough to have brains to distinguish between Brass and Gold.

 

Behaving in such a way is not expected from civilized people like us and it must be stopped to destroy public property as fashion during protests, Dharnas…

                  No More Please……
