The Sun-behind the wheel; Time and Tides waits for none.;Let us build a better society,nation and world ;By SudhirMishra/Bolangir;31stDecember2014

Dear all
I am posting an old photograph taken six months which shows that the Sun isgoing down in the west behind the Wheel.
Since time immemorial two things are moving constantly-1) Time and Tides.These two things have never stopped,and moving on.The Sun set in the west only to rise in the east ---and the time circle moves on--A large number of people are gearing to prepare the entry of new year 2015.
That is fine.But that moment is just like another moment .Thus time would continue its march forward always---better we should strive to build a better human being,society, society, nation and world.
The year 2014 is scheduled passed into oblivion after few hours and 2015 would start.
Happy new year 2015 to all

TRIBALS FLOUT BAN, KILL ANIMALS, BIRDS IN SULIA YATRAWednesday, 31 December 2014 | SUDHIR MISHRA | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar

TRIBALS FLOUT BAN, KILL ANIMALS, BIRDS IN SULIA YATRA
Wednesday, 31 December 2014 | SUDHIR MISHRA | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar

Defying the prohibitory orders imposed by the district administration, once again animal killing took place much to the chagrin of animal lovers at the tribal festival Sulia Yatra in the district.
This year the district administration clamped prohibitory orders in six places including Badkhala, Saankhala, Khairguda, besides three other places in the district. However, notwithstanding the scanning of the administration, the police and the media, hundreds of animals including goat, buffalo, cock and other animals were killed at Badkhala and other places on Tuesday by the tribal devotees before their presiding deity.
Every year on second Tuesday of Paush month, Sulia Yatra is observed near Khairguda village in Deogaon block, 30km from here. The spot is popularly known as Badkhala. However, the animal sacrifice is also executed in a few adjoining places. A few years back, some rationalists had approached the Odisha High Court seeking a ban on killing of animals in Sulia venues and the court had imposed a ban and asked the district administration to take measures to stop the cruelty to animals in the festival.
However, according to sources, no awareness drive was held by the district administration this year as it used to do in past. Moreover, activists opposing the animal killing at Sulia have been somewhat inactive since last few years. Only at the last minute, the prohibitory orders were imposed by the district administration, which was breached easily by the people. Many also viewed it as eyewash.
Police personnel including three Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSPs) were deployed at the place. Asked to comment on the tribals displaying their weapons and killing animals in violation of the prohibitory orders, SDPO NarayanNaik said the guilty would be taken to task. “Animal sacrifice at the altar of tribal deity in Suliaa Jatra is a part and parcel of tribal customs. We are proud of our tradition and would stand by it come what may. We are least bothered about what the administration does,” said Balangir Zilla Adivasi Kalyan Sangh president Braja Kishore Singhbhoi.

“There is no work here in Odisha. The sardar promised to give us work and good earnings outside the State so we were accompanying him there,” said another labourer.“These days middlemen are adopting new strategies. They are using Government buses as no one would suspect. We have rescued 26 people and arrested the sardar and seized the pickup van used to carry these people.

B’NGIR LAW AND ORDER DETERIORATING’ Tuesday, 23 December 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar

B’NGIR LAW AND ORDER DETERIORATING’
Tuesday, 23 December 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
    
The law and order situation in Balangir is deteriorating and the police have not been able to nab the culprits involved in recent crimes. This was observed by Balangir Congress MLA and Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Narasingha Mishra while speaking to mediapersons here on Monday.
He pointed out that on December 17, a businessman from Lathore, Sitaram Agrawal, who had come to Balangir, withdrew Rs 8 lakh from a bank and while he was purchasing medicine at Patna Hotel Chowk, his cash bag was taken away from his car in broad daylight.  Again, on December 19, a local businessman, Sashi Malang, while returning home at around 9.45 pm, was attacked by miscreants and his bag was looted.
These two loot incidents and the failure of police to nab the miscreants till today are matters of concern. “The ignorance of the ASP over these incidents when I talked to him is surprising,” Mishra said. The police, he felt, is utilised to serve the ruling BJD bosses, rather than tackling law and order, he alleged further.
The arrest of DSP Pramod Panda by the CBI for his involvement in the chit fund scam speaks a lot. Alok Jena had filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking a CBI inquiry into the chit fund scam and Panda had threatened and tried to influence him to withdraw the petition. Interestingly, Panda was given the charge to investigate the murder of BJD leader Abhimanyu Sahu of Titilagarh. He was given the job with specific instruction to “overlook” the conspiracy angel of the murder case to save BJD leaders, Mishra said.
The police should intensify patrolling in the town police and nab the culprits involved in the loot incidents without further delay so that all people should feel the presence of, Mishra said.

263 B’NGIR BONDED LABOURERS TO GET REHAB SUM
Sunday, 21 December 2014 | SUDHIR MISHRA | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
The livelihood assistance of 263 bonded labourers of Balangir district, which was pending since 2011 with the State Government, will be disbursed within seven days. This was announced by Balangir Collector Dr M Muthukumar.
According to Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act, 1976, a labourer who is rescued from a worksite or other places is entitled to get Rs 20,000 as financial assistance. He/she is given Rs 1,000 on the spot and the rest Rs 19,000 is given later for a livelihood plan. The rehabilitation plan is prepared and submitted to the DRDA which sends the proposals to the Panchyati Raj (PR) department for release of assistance. While the State Government gives Rs 10,000, the Central Government also gives a matching grant of Rs 10,000.
The issue of pending assistance of bonded labourers and apathy to them by the PR department was first highlighted in The Pioneer on October 20. After the publication of the report, it was also put up at the Camp Court of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) at Bhubneshwar in November last and the NHRC had issued strict instruction to the Secretary, PR department, to immediately release the financial assistance pending for years.

The PR department Secretary subsequently issued a letter to all district Collectors to arrange funds at their own source and ensure payment to the rescued bonded labourers. However, many feel that the assistance amount of Rs 20,000 is inadequate and it should be hiked to Rs 40,000. Sources said after 263 bonded labourers get livelihood assistance, still around another 45 labourers would have to wait to avail the benefit.

Villagers of Kultapda, Badbahal and Arjunpur under Deogaon block have urged the district Collector to ban country liquor sale for at least five days during the forthcoming Sullia Yatra to be held on December 30.
Every year on first Tuesday of Hindu calendar month Pausa, Sulia Yatra is held at Khairguda and Kumuria, wherein hundreds of animals are sacrificed at the altar of the goddess. Despite protest from all sides, the tribals remain adamant on killing animals which they hold as an age-old tradition. Any effort to stop the killing of animals is viewed as interference in the tribal faith. This year, the tribals in a meeting have decided to continue killing of animals too as an inalienable part of their rituals.
As a large number of people gather during the period, the locals have urged the administration to ban liquor sale at Gudkhapala and close a liquor Bhati operating there from December 29 to January 2.

Balangir MP Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo has expressed concern over rise in cancer related deaths in atomic energy centres among people in the age group of 29-50 years due to exposure to radiation and demanded a detailed survey on the health risk to human beings in all the atomic power  stations in India.
In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently, Singh Deo cited a RTI reply mentioning that a total of 3,387deaths among staff of the 19 atomic centers in the country have occurred in the last 20 years and 2,600 of them are due to cancer. As per the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) the units of occupational exposure to radiation should not be higher than 50 mSv (millisevert) in a year and the annual average dose over the five years should not exceed over 20 mSv, pointed out Singh Deo. To know the exact cause of the rising cancer deaths in atomic centers and the amount of radiation exposure, Singh Deo demanded a survey. He said it is essential to know the number of people died; how long they were exposed to radiation; any relation between radiation and cancer; measures to be undertaken to protect them and measures taken to protect the persons employed in the atomic plants.

Even as the Government claims to be providing job work to the poor and vulnerable people at their doorstep, reports of poor people migrating from their homes in search of work to outside States and getting exploited there are found aplenty.
But, a recent report of a family of four getting ruined with wife being gangraped by a kiln owner and an agent, two sons being killed by them, and unable to bear the traumatic husband  committing suicide has turned to be a rare of rarest cases in the history of all tortures.
According to sources, Bivek Chinda (45) of Huma village under the Kantamal police station of Boudh district had migrated with his wife and two sons to Andhra Pradesh to work in a brick kiln through a local Dalal on December 3.
According to reports, as he had some dispute with a brick kiln owner, the latter and the agent, in a mood of revenge, gangraped Chinda’s wife and killed his two children in front of Bivek.
Unable to bear the shock, depressed Chinda tried to commit suicide in Hyderabad by touching an electric transformer.
However, he was rescued by the local police and admitted to a hospital there. As his condition slightly improved, he was sent to Balangir somehow by the Nagabali Express. As Chinda had not completely recovered, when he arrived at Balangir railway station he was to be admitted in hospital. But he succumbed to his burn injury which had become septic in the hospital on December 14 last.
“He was admitted to the District Headquarters Hospital with injuries on different parts of the body with severe infection. He died due to septicemia,” says Balangir CDMO Dr RN Tripathy.
Meanwhile, the Balangir town police have registered a case and sent the body for post-mortem. When asked, the Boudh SP said, “I shall look into the matter.”
On Tuesday, Labour and Employment Minister Prafulla Mallick expressed profound grief over the tragic death of Chinda and said the State Government would make all out efforts to rescue Bivek’s wife from Andhra Pradesh. 
“Our priority now is to rescue the missing wife of the deceased, who was gangraped by the brick kiln owner and his associates. We are trying to get the address of the locality where the deceased labourer was staying with his family members,” the Minister told reporters in Bhubaneswar.
He further informed that the Development Commissioner is having discussions in this regard with his Andhra Pradesh counterpart.

B’NGIR FARMERS DEMAND OPENING OF MANDIS
Friday, 12 December 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar

Members of the Kisan Mahasangha led by Sudhir Parischha and Jati Pradhan on Thursday staged a demonstration before the district Collectorate here demanding that the Mandis all over the district be made functional for procurement of paddy from farmers and to prevent distress sale of paddy within a week. They submitted a memorandum to this effect to the Chief Minister through the district administration.
In the absence of functioning of the Mandis in the district, farmers have been forced to sell their produce at rates below the declared minimum support price (MSP). Moreover, as decided at the district-level procurement committee meeting this year, small farmers should be able to sell 10 quintals of paddy directly and the limit for purchase of paddy from farmers should be raised to 20 quintals. However, the Government has fixed the limit at 12 quintals, which is unfair, the memorandum said.
By making the rule of the CAP storage system, rice mill owner has been given order to lift paddy from Mandis, which is illegal, added the memorandum. Unless these provisions are implemented, farmers of the district would resort to agitation, threatened Krushak Mahasangha president Sudhir Parischha.

Members of the Sangha, in the presence of advocate Bishnu Sharma and others, pointed out that even though the Sukbashis (landless people) of Balangir district have got land from the Government, till today they have not got the Final Record of Rights (RoR) due to official apathy, for which they are facing various problems.

B’NGIR FARMERS DEMAND OPENING OF MANDIS
Friday, 12 December 2014 | PNS | BALANGIR | in Bhubaneswar
MMembers of the Kisan Mahasangha led by Sudhir Parischha and Jati Pradhan on Thursday staged a demonstration before the district Collectorate here demanding that the Mandis all over the district be made functional for procurement of paddy from farmers and to prevent distress sale of paddy within a week. They submitted a memorandum to this effect to the Chief Minister through the district administration.
In the absence of functioning of the Mandis in the district, farmers have been forced to sell their produce at rates below the declared minimum support price (MSP). Moreover, as decided at the district-level procurement committee meeting this year, small farmers should be able to sell 10 quintals of paddy directly and the limit for purchase of paddy from farmers should be raised to 20 quintals. However, the Government has fixed the limit at 12 quintals, which is unfair, the memorandum said.
By making the rule of the CAP storage system, rice mill owner has been given order to lift paddy from Mandis, which is illegal, added the memorandum. Unless these provisions are implemented, farmers of the district would resort to agitation, threatened Krushak Mahasangha president Sudhir Parischha.
