US unemployment rate reaches 7.6%

The US unemployment rate rose to 7.6% in January, up from 7.2% in December, according to official figures. The rise puts the unemployment rate at the highest level since 1992. According to the US Labor Department, the economy lost 598,000 non-farm jobs for the month, and it also revised upwards the job losses for December. Commenting on the figures, President Obama said the "the situation could not be more serious" and added that "these numbers demand action".

He urged the Congress to pass his economic stimulus package without delay and "not to get bogged down in distraction and delay while millions of Americans are being put out of work".

Carmaking cutbacks

The monthly report on non-farm payrolls is seen as giving one of the best ideas of how the US economy is faring and comes amid growing fears that the global contraction will continue for some time.

The Labor Department revised upwards its estimate of job losses for December to 577,000 from 524,000.

In total, the US economy has lost 3.7 million jobs since the recession began in December 2007, with nearly half of those jobs shed coming in the past three months.

During January manufacturing cut back 207,000 jobs, making it the largest one-month fall since October 1982. The cutback in the auto sector was largely responsible for the reduction in factory jobs.

Construction firms cut 111,000 jobs, professional and business services got rid of 121,000 posts, retailers axed 45,000 jobs, and 28,000 posts went in the leisure and hospitality sector.

The latest figures were significantly worse than economists had expected.

'Awful report'

"The report is awful. It's even worse than it looks because retailers did not hire workers prior to Christmas, but they still did enormous layoffs after Christmas," said Cary Leahey, an economist at Decision Economics in New York.

"Firms are now suffering under the burden of excess inventories and everywhere you look in the report you see declines in almost every industry."

Meanwhile, in Canada, unemployment reached 7.2%, after a worse-than-expected 129,000 jobs were shed in January.

Christian forum seeks protection

BHOPAL, FEB 4 (IANS): A Madhya Pradesh Christian forum Wednesday wrote to President Pratibha Patil seeking her protection and expressing fears of violence against the community in the wake of upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Madhya Pradesh-Chhattisgarh Christian Forum (MPCCF) wrote to the president after Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists Monday allegedly ransacked a Christian missionary-run St. Thomas Convent, whose principal Thomas Malkacherupil was accused of dishonouring national anthem during the Republic Day function Jan 26, MPCCF chief Indira Iyengar said. Iyenger, in the letter, has said that the Christians could be subjected to more violence in the run up to the Lok Sabha elections.

A case for disrupting singing of the national anthem was registered against Malkacherupil Jan 31 on the basis of a complaint by the school’s physical training teacher Vedprakash Gupta.
Later Monday, ABVP workers staged a demonstration outside the convent school demanding arrest of the principal and scuffled with the cops in which some activists were injured. The principal was arrested and later released on bail.

Demanding a ban on all outfits that are “damaging the secular character of the country”, Iyengar said, “Future of the country’s democracy is at stake due to such elements”.

Meanwhile, ABVP activists have demanded that the bail of the principal be cancelled and he be re-arrested.

ABVP state secretary Hitesh Shukla has warned of an intensified agitation if their demand was not fulfilled by Thursday.

“People involved in the treason do not have any caste or religion, and any attempt to save the culprit by giving the issue a communal colour is wrong and would not be tolerated,” Shukla said.
State Congress spokesperson Manak Agrawal said, “The incident once again underlines the fact that ABVP, Bajrang Dal and allied organisations of the ruling BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) have no fear of law. The police and the administration in the state have miserably failed to rein them in.”

Agrawal demanded that people responsible for the incident should be arrested and prosecuted.

“We could have confronted the Assam Rifles personnel since we were around 30 of us in the camp. We however restrained ourselves, keeping in view the cease-fire ground rules and as instructed by our monitoring cell”, he said.

Further he accused the Assam Rifles of taking away some blankets, beds, cooking utensils and other household articles from the makeshift camp comprising of five sheds. Another functionary of the NSCN (I-M), said the camp was set up only for the purpose of providing security to the VIPs of the NSCN(I-M).

He also accused the security forces of trying to provoke the NSCN(I-M) on several occasions. The incident, coming close on the heels of the recent 14-day stand off at Shiroi village Ukhrul district between the Assam Rifles and NSCN(I-M) has added a new dimension to the enforcement of the cease particularly in the light of New Delhi’s insistence to all factions to adhere to the agreed ground rules.

Explosives recovered

Meanwhile, the PRO, IGAR(N) said the 24 Assam Rifles, on receipt of specific information carried out a search operation Wednesday near the village and recovered some explosives and other items. The PRO said the AR discovered the “carefully concealed explosives, detonators inside a gunny bag” in a temporary unoccupied shelter made of bamboo and polythene. Among the recovered items included-two Japanese radio sets, one hand grenade, live rounds, four detonators, explosive stick, battery chargers, antennas and cable besides several incriminating documents. The AR troops dismantled the structure and also took possession of all the recovered items. Additional columns were also inducted to sanitize the entire area after the recovery, said the PRO. Though no arrests were made, the PRO said yet the presence of “explosives in close proximity to main road and railway line has definitely raised alarms and possible intensions of planned subversive activities cannot be ruled out”. A high state of alert was being maintained throughout Nagaland to prevent any of the underground outfits from carrying out subversive activities or use it to provide safe haven or corridor to escape the “heat” generated by the Army and security forces operations in Assam, the PRO said. The AR appealed to all the civilians to cooperate with them and provide any information regarding presence of suspected militants or weapons and explosives so as to avert any untoward incident within Nagaland.

Myanmar not to allow its soil to be used by NE insurgents

Nay Pyi Taw (Myanmar), February 5 (PTI): Myanmar today pledged that it would not allow its territory to be used by northeastern insurgents to target India as the neighbouring countries signed two pacts in industry and education sectors injecting a substantive economic content to their relations.

India raised the security issue stemming from the insurgents taking shelter in Myanmar which shares border with northeastern states of Manipur, Mizoram, Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland as visiting Vice President Hamid Ansari held talks with Gen Maung Aye, the number two in this country’s ruling military junta, sources said.

At the delegation-level talks between the two sides, which followed a brief one-to-one meeting between Ansari and Gen Aye, the Myanmarese side acknowledged India’s security concerns but conveyed that the insurgents would not be permitted to use its territory to target India, they said. Myanmar’s assurance assumed significance as India, which had kept the military junta at arms length for a long time after the 1988 crackdown on pro-democracy protests, changed track when it found its security interests in northeastern states were in jeopardy.

Since India began engaging the Myanmarese military junta, there has been cooperation between security forces of the two countries in flushing out the northeastern insurgents. - PTI

Vice-president of India on four-day visit to Burma

New Delhi (Mizzima) – The Vice-President of India M. Hamid Ansari will begin a four-day official visit to military-ruled Burma on Thursday in a bid to give a leg up to bilateral relations between the two countries.

"He [Ansari] will begin the four-day trip tomorrow [Thursday]," an official at the Indian Ministry of External Affairs told Mizzima on Wednesday.

According to a document at the MEA, during his visit Ansari will inaugurate the Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC) in Rangoon. India and Burma in July 2004 signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to set-up the India-Myanmar EDC (MIEDC).

In Mandalay, Ansari will also inaugurate the Optical Fibre Link between India's border town of Moreh in Manipur state, northeast India and the ancient capital city of Mandalay in central Burma, set-up by the Telecommunications Consultants India Ltd (TCIL).

India under, the project, has sanctioned US $ 7 million through its Export and Import (EXIM) Bank to Burma. With the Myanmar Posts and Telecommunication (MPT) acting as the executing agent on the Burmese side, ADSL2+2 systems have been installed in at least 80 locations across Burma, the document said.

While it is still not clear, who in Burma, the Indian Vice-President will meet during his visit, Ansari is slated to witness the signing of two MoUs - setting up of India-Burma Industrial Training Centre and Centre for English Language Training (CELT).

The ITC, which will be located in Central Burma's Pakokku Town, will be a joint venture between India's HNT (International) and the Burmese government. The CELT will be set-up under the Association of Southeast Asian Nation-India (Asean-India) project.

Ansari's trip to Burma will be the first Indian high-level official visit to the military-ruled country in 2009. Ansari will be accompanied by a business delegation, according to MEA.

India and Burma in recent years have stepped up bilateral relationship and cosied up in terms of trade cooperation. According to statistics released by the MEA, Indo-Burmese bilateral trade for 2007-08 stood at US $ 901.3 million with Burma's export to India standing at US $ 727.85 million.

India's export to Burma for the same fiscal year stood at US $ 173.46 million.

Slumdog Millionaire: Viewpoints and Moral

I rarely watch any movies if it is not the talk of the globe. This particular movie "Slumdog Millionaire" is the first and sole movie, which I watched from the beginning to end in the last three years. And this is my first time of writing a movie review.

After watching this movie, I thought I should write the moral of this movie from my own perspective. It may not be same from your viewpoints.

Before I start, let me highlight the behind people in this great movie.

It was directed by Danny Boyle (born on 20 October 1956, Manchester, England, UK) and co-directed by a renowned Indian director, Loveleen Tandan.

The writers of this coveted novel is Simon Beaufoy (screenplay) and Vikas Swarup (Novel "Q & A").

It was released in USA on 30 August 2008 at Telluride Film Festival and on screen in India on 23 January 2009.

Summary of the story:

A Mumbai teen, who grew up in the slums, becomes a contestant on the Indian version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?" He is arrested under suspicion of cheating, and while being interrogated, events from his life history are shown which explain why he knows the answers.

My Viewpoints

The actor is a street guy with a moral good character. He has a numerous experiences from his struggling beggar life. It shows that experiences in a downtrodden life are well memorized. Some may say the recollection of his experiences is not relevant to the questions. But in my viewpoint, I can understand how and why these difficult questions can be answered from one’s experiences. It is simple, the whole parts of his life are not telecast, and rather only the important parts were expose to be seen. To support my argument, lets see the answer of pistol inventor. The movie does not show how, where and when did he come to know the inventor of pistol. It is understand that if someone posses something important, a curious person must know the pros and cons of the items which he posses.

Another point that bothers me, how and when did they learn to speak English? I know that it is important for that world to understand what they say. What I mean is that being brought up in a slum area and where there is no English is used, it somehow, in my opinion degrade the saltiness/value of the movie. If there could be a little part, which shows how and why they came to speak English, it would be superb.

The Moral

The sole moral of the movie is the POWER or IMPORTANCE OF EXPERIENCES.

Life is a continuous chain of experiences. These experiences are both good and bad but both help us live a more educated and productive life. Experience is a key ingredient to success on the job. One proverb says, to recruit for a newly created post, an experienced employee is much more preferred than a well qualified professionals.

One of my cousins, Rev. T. Dongzathawng who is currently in US used to say, look unto the past, ask the experienced people, walk the path of the old roads and learn from what you see.

When I was a little boy, I was unaware of what he meant by that. When growing older and older, I come to know that what is the importance and power of experienced.

For example, let me illustrate one of my many experiences in my recent life.

When I was looking for a job in New Delhi. The first question, which the interviewer asked was that. Do you have any experience in KPO related jobs? My answer was quite clear. I replied NO, not even in any other job except some experiences in self-style journalism. By that time, I realized how important to have experience in any field.

Experience, which I call useless

Centre reverts to 90:10 pattern of funding for NE: Raghuvansh

NEW DELHI: Amid reports of tardy progress of rural development in the North East, the Centre on Tuesday said that special attention is given to the remote and backward region for its fast and overall development. Inaugurating the 9th Editors Conference on Social Sector issues, the Union Minister for Rural Development Raghuvansh Prasad Singh said that the Centre has already reverted back to 90:10 pattern of funding instead of 75:25 in case of North East.

In most of the centrally sponsored programmes, mainly in the Ministry of Rural Development, the funding pattern to the NE is 90:10 (90 percent grant and ten percent loan) formulae, he said.

The NE states get topmost priority as far as rural development schemes are concerned, the minister said.

He pointed out that after the flagship National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, the minimum wages in the NE states have become more than doubled.

Earlier the minimum wages was about fifty rupees which has become more than hundred rupees now, he said.

Mr Singh has reiterated the Government's resolve to work for the cause of "Aam aadmi" with the emphasis on poverty eradication and employment generation in rural India. Efficient fiscal management has made it possible with the budgetary allocation of Rs 1,93,715 crore for his ministry during the last five years, he said.

Highlighting the achievements of the ministry, the Minister said during the last five years (2004-09), the total budget of the Ministry of Rural Development to Rs 1,93,715 crore whereas during 1999-2004 it was only Rs 72,263 crore.

It would be appropriate to note that compared to the total 10th Five Year Plan budget provision of Rs 76,000 crore, the current financial year (2008-09) only has been provided with an equal amount.

The two-day conference is being attended by social sector editors from all over the country along with the leading media persons and the columnists from social sector.

Naga students’ protest Delhi’s ‘insincerity’

Dimapur : In view of the absence of a concrete decision by the UPA Government with regard to the “aspirational demand put forward by the National Socialist Council of Nagalim (NSCN)” and considering the current tense political situation in Naga areas in the aftermath of the Shirui standoff between the 17th Assam Rifles and the NSCN, the Naga Students’ Union, Delhi (NSUD) took to expressing its disappointment and resentment.

It staged a protest demonstration from Jantar Mantar to Parliament Street today at 1 pm. The protest was attended by over 2000 Naga students, sympathizers and well-wishers. Naga MPs and MLAs, the co-ordination committee on Shirui Siege, Tangkhul Shanao Long, Naga People’s Movement for Human Rights (NPMHR) and others spoke during the protest demonstration.

The Shiroi standoff was a ‘deliberate sinister’ attempt to ‘reign in terror’, according to the Naga Students’ Federation. Terming it to be an attempt to wage repression and disrupt the “peaceful” existence of the Naga populace, the NSF today urged the government of India to “instantly cease harboring policies and activities” that are negative to the people.

The NSF today said in a note from its president that the Shiroi standoff has cast a cloud over the Government of India’s commitment to the ongoing Indo-Naga political “peace” process. The recent action of the Assam Rifles “to subjugate the Nagas” and to “censor” their political rights has “vividly exhibited the threatening superficial policy of the GoI”, the NSF stated. The apex Naga students’ organization also said the security forces’ action was in open negation to the principles of ceasefire.

“The exercise of the AR was a deliberate sinister act attempted to reign in terror for suppression and to disrupt and defy the peaceful existence of the Naga populace. The adage (sic) ‘friends of the hill people’ have become a challenge and threat to out Naga political identity and existence” the NSF said.

The Naga Students’ Federation urged upon the wisdom of the GoI to “instantly” cease harboring policies and activities that are detrimental to the “peaceful co-habitation” of the “two nations” instead of “fringing employing provocative and subduing military might”.

Similarly, the Naga Students’ Union of Delhi has written to the Prime Minister of India, expressing disappointment and resentment “before your good person and office”. The NSUD in its memorandum to Dr. Manmohan Singh demanded “solemn political commitment” from the government of India.

‘The GoI must clearly spell out a concrete proposal to resolve and transform the Indo-Naga conflict.

It is disturbing to know that the Government of India has failed to show evidence of its claim of sincerity, seriousness and political commitment to the public even after 11 years of several rounds of political negotiations with the NSCN’ the NSUD stated in its memorandum. The union also said the Naga students in Delhi deem as unfortunate the Indian Government not pronouncing a political formula but intensifying the emphasis on brute force of military means to “manage” the Indo-Naga issue.

Referring to the recent two-week standoff in Shiroi village between Assam Rifles troopers and NSCN (IM) activists, the union said the action was not “only an infringement of people’s right to freedom of movement but also gross violation of human rights”.

“You are well aware of the fact that Nagas inhabit in four north eastern states, namely, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur and Nagaland. It is imperative to point out that the peace talk is between the Government of India and the Nagas, it is not a peace talk between the Government of India and the Nagaland state; therefore ceasefire continues and ceasefire must also prevail all around the world” the NSUD demanded in its memo.

Stating its demands, the NSUD called for a meaningful political solution as it is the “bounden duty of the UPA Government to resolve and transform the Indo-Naga problem before the end of its tenure in office”. The political talks should be expedited for a political solution by taking all possible steps to create conducive environment, NSUD stated. Without it, the union said, ‘meaningful political talks cannot be carried out’.

On the purview of the current ceasefire, the union said it should cover not only all Naga areas “but also all around the world”. The NSUD explained that the Indo-Naga peace talk is between the Government of India and the Nagas and not “peace talks between the Government of India and the Nagaland state”.

The ceasefire is to bring peace for all the Nagas and not restricted to Nagaland state alone, the union said. The government of India is also asked to “show evidence of its claim of seriousness, sincerity and political commitment to resolve and transform the Indo-Naga political issue”. The aspiration of the Nagas for a political solution is the rights of the Naga people, the NSUD added.


After Shiroi, trouble brews at Hebron doors

Dimapur : Barely two days after the settlement of the 14-days siege of Shiroi village in Ukhrul district between the Assam Rifles and NSCN (IM) cadres, Indian security forces reportedly from the Assam Rifles today ransacked an NSCN (IM) “road operation party” post at Bade village, in Dimapur, just about 25 kilometers away from the outfit’s headquarter, Hebron Camp.

Bade village leaders informed that the security forces came in seven vehicles, two gypsies and five trucks. They were lead by “two majors”. There were around twenty-five NSCN (IM) cadres inside the “outpost” when the Indian security forces came at around 10:00 to 10:30 AM, it was informed. However, the cadres were reportedly directed by the ceasefire Monitoring Cell office not to confront the security forces. They were said to have retreated into the forest while the security personnel ransacked the whole ‘outpost’.

The village chairman and the Head GB were also allegedly made to sign an already “ready-made” written document. The village chairman said the document in which they signed stated Bade Village “certifies or approves or witnesses” the ransacking of the outpost. The villager leaders informed this to media persons who visited the area. The security forces also took photographs of their activity, the villagers stated.

Soon after, senior NSCN (IM) functionaries also visited the site and took stock of the situation. Jacob Shaiza of the MIP NSCN (IM) wondered how this incident could happen when the Shiroi standoff between the Assam Rifles and the NSCN (IM) ‘has been settled amicably’. Another NSCN (IM) functionary termed it as sheer provocation by the Assam Rifles. The NSCN (IM) functionaries asserted that the “outpost has been in existence for the past few years in order to provide security’ to the NSCN (IM) and other “VIPS” who pass that area.

Ar recovers explosives at Bade viilage

Dimapur : Based on specific intelligence about presence of explosives in Bade village, an intense search operation was carried out today at round 4 AM by the 24th AR. Troops near Badhe village conducting a search came across a temporary unoccupied shelter made out of bamboo and polythene, informed a note from the PRO of IGAR (N) Major Pallab Choudhury. A detailed search revealed carefully-concealed explosives and detonators inside a gunny bag besides radio sets, live rounds and incriminating documents, stated the note from the PRO. The detailed recoveries included two Japanese radio sets, one hand grenade, live rounds, four detonators, sticks of explosives, battery chargers, antennas, cable besides several incriminating documents. The structure was dismantled and all recoveries have been confisticated by the Assam Rifles, it was informed.

When last reports came in, a search of the entire area was being carried out by additional columns inducted to ‘sanitize the area’, the PRO informed. “Although no arrests have been made, however presence of explosives in close proximity to main road and railway line has definitely raised alarms and possible intensions of planned subversive activities cannot be ruled out”, the army note stated.

The Assam Rifles has, in the meantime, clarified that a high state of alert is being maintained all over the state to prevent any attempt by underground outfits to carry out subversive activities within the state or use it as a safe heaven or corridor to escape the heat generated by the army and SF operations in Assam. The AR authorities appealed to the civil populace to offer cooperation and provide any information on presence of suspected militants or weapons and explosives to avert any tragic incident within Nagaland.
