THIRST AND GUWAHATI<br />

by SANDEEP SHARMA<br />

There is a deepening crisis for<br />

the Guwahaitans as the water<br />

level under the depths of<br />

<strong>Guwahati</strong> is decreasing gradually.<br />

The Central Ground<br />

Water Board (CGWB) has<br />

found that the water table in<br />

many pockets of the city has<br />

gone down drastically over<br />

the last five years. The water level has gone<br />

down mostly in and around the thickly populated<br />

Panbazar area in the heart of the city and<br />

Azara area of west <strong>Guwahati</strong> in the last few<br />

years. These are the areas of the city where<br />

there has been rapid growth of population and<br />

construction activities in the last 10 years.<br />

Open areas are reducing everyday in <strong>Guwahati</strong><br />

and pucca roads are coming up all around. If<br />

the city residents don’t start digging recharge<br />

pits to harvest rain water, the time is not far<br />

when there will be no underground water in<br />

<strong>Guwahati</strong>.”<br />

Since aquifers below the earth in <strong>Guwahati</strong><br />

are not interlinked, there is scarcity of water<br />

in one pocket of the city while water is available<br />

in another pocket.<br />

The city residents are facing acute water scarcity<br />

also due to the unauthorized extraction of<br />

ground water for commercial gains in the city.<br />

The <strong>Guwahati</strong> Municipal Corporation and the<br />

Kamrup (Metro) district administration have<br />

been receiving public complaints against unauthorized<br />

extraction of ground water. Public<br />

awareness on water harvesting is yet to gain<br />

momentum in <strong>Guwahati</strong>.<br />

Though the state government has initiated<br />

water supply projects in <strong>Guwahati</strong> with assistance<br />

from the Jawaharlal Nehru National<br />

Urban Renewal Mission, Asian Development<br />

Bank and the Japan International Cooperation<br />

Agency to provide 24X7 household water<br />

supplies to the city residents, the projects are<br />

likely to start functioning only from the second<br />

half of 2015.<br />

<strong>Guwahati</strong> and its adjoining areas are likely<br />

to suffer a crisis in the form of groundwater<br />

depletion, if efforts are not made to optimise<br />

the use of the resources. Both State Government<br />

and citizens must take steps that would<br />

help recharge groundwater, which has been<br />

exploited at a worrying rate. The groundwater<br />

of Assam needs to be mapped and a comprehensive<br />

plan about its use should be prepared.<br />

The issue has gained currency with recent scientific<br />

announcements indicating that rainfall<br />

in Assam and other parts of the North East<br />

is likely to decrease due to climatic changes.<br />

Substantial reduction of rainfall would contribute<br />

to less water reaching underground<br />

aquifers.<br />

AUGUST 02, 2013 PAGE - 23<br />

DEPLETING GROUND WATER<br />

IN GUWAHATI<br />

Well acquainted with the geologic<br />

formations of <strong>Guwahati</strong><br />

and adjoining areas, The<br />

region’s groundwater is recharged<br />

by two major sources<br />

– rainfall and the river Brahmaputra.<br />

Any decrease in rainfall will<br />

lower the groundwater level in<br />

areas where the chief source is<br />

rainfall. There are many areas,<br />

he asserted, where the Brahmaputra<br />

cannot recharge the<br />

groundwater due to the character<br />

of sediments or distance<br />

from the source.<br />

Many of the channels,<br />

which were earlier linked<br />

to the Brahmaputra, have<br />

been blocked and others<br />

have dried up, he pointed<br />

out. The absence of these<br />

channels has also lessened<br />

the scope of groundwater<br />

recharge.<br />

The State Government must<br />

come up with legislation to<br />

halt the unplanned exploitation<br />

of groundwater, and take<br />

steps to ensure that highrise<br />

buildings cannot simply go on<br />

extracting the resource at will.<br />

“The Government must ensure<br />

that highrise buildings which<br />

rely on groundwater have recharge<br />

units,” he remarked.<br />

Conservation and maintenance<br />

of natural and manmade<br />

water bodies is another<br />

priority for protecting groundwater<br />

resources. Depletion of<br />

such features will constrain<br />

key sources of groundwater recharge.<br />

Change in land use has also<br />

added to the concerns over<br />

groundwater. Loss of vegetative<br />

cover has increased the<br />

rate of surface run-off, which<br />

in turn reduces percolation<br />

of water to the ground below.<br />

This problem is acute in the<br />

hilly terrain in and around the<br />

city, where more surface runoff<br />

has also resulted in erosion<br />

and deposition of soil in lowlying<br />

areas.<br />

Frequently growing construction<br />

of high rise buildings has<br />

necessitated setting up huge<br />

number of deep tube wells for<br />

the water need of the people,<br />

while there is no proper monitoring<br />

of extraction of groundwater<br />

through these deep tube<br />

wells. As a result these daily<br />

growing tube wells are decreasing<br />

the availability of the<br />

ground waters.<br />

According to Sec 63 (VI) of<br />

the Assam Irrigation (AI) Act,<br />

unauthorized drawl of groundwater<br />

is an offence and attracts<br />

levy of penalty.<br />

There are several boring service<br />

agencies operational in<br />

the state and many of them<br />

are not registered under the<br />

Assam Urban Water Supply<br />

Board. Before conducting any<br />

boring work for the extraction<br />

of groundwater, the concerned<br />

persons or organizations must<br />

take the permission of the<br />

Assam Urban Water Supply<br />

Board and the Public Health<br />

Engineering Department.<br />

Before providing any boring<br />

service agencies must register<br />

themselves under the Assam<br />

Urban Water Supply Board.<br />

Following the AI Act should<br />

be made mandatory to execute<br />

agreements before drawl of<br />

water from any water bodies<br />

by any organizations.The<br />

registration of boring service<br />

agencies should be made mandatory<br />

in the state.

25,000 STUDENTS DRUG USERS IN GUWAHATI<br />

In the present scenario, the<br />

entire world is under the menace<br />

of drug abuse. Even the<br />

most powerful countries are<br />

in its grip, India is not far behind.<br />

Thus the abuse of drugs<br />

has become an international<br />

problem. In India too their<br />

number has been increasing at<br />

an alarming rate and Assam is<br />

not an exception to it. Reports<br />

say that in <strong>Guwahati</strong>, almost<br />

2500 of all the students taking<br />

admission in different universities<br />

and colleges every year<br />

are drugs addict. It is seen that<br />

mostly the younger generation<br />

falls an easy prey to it. Several<br />

cannabis products like charas,<br />

ganja/bhang, dendrite, whitener;<br />

psychotropic substances<br />

like brown sugar and heroin<br />

and various pharmaceutical<br />

products containing narcotic<br />

drugs are most common form<br />

of drugs taken by such addict<br />

youngsters. A NGO named<br />

GOLD has been working since<br />

2005 in order to eradicate the<br />

drug menace from the youngsters<br />

of the city. During a survey,<br />

several facts were being<br />

brought to light by the said<br />

NGO. A volunteer of GOLD<br />

reported that in <strong>Guwahati</strong> and<br />

other parts of Assam crimes<br />

like murder, pick pocketing,<br />

theft, chain snatching etc<br />

are mostly committed by the<br />

teenagers taking drugs. When<br />

a man starts drug addiction,<br />

he becomes addicted to it forever<br />

and goes on increasing its<br />

dose. As a result of which the<br />

addicts resort to crime to pay<br />

for their drugs, leading to increase<br />

in the crime rate. Drugs<br />

remove inhibition and impair<br />

judgment egging one on to<br />

commit offences like murder<br />

of family members, pickpocket<br />

ting etc. GOLD in its report has<br />

made a comparative study of<br />

rise in number of drugs addict<br />

in different districts of Assam.<br />

Meanwhile, the report stated<br />

that in Muslim dominated areas<br />

the numbers of such persons<br />

are less in comparison to the<br />

Hindu residing places for the<br />

reason that it is believed that<br />

it has attained some amount of<br />

religious sanctity because of its<br />

association with some Hindu<br />

deities.<br />

A physician of repute opined<br />

that in the present day situation,<br />

due to variation in parents-child<br />

opinion has lead<br />

to rise in the number of drug<br />

addicts who take drugs to escape<br />

hard realities of life. Drug<br />

abuse is a psychological problem<br />

and the persons falling<br />

prey to it are having psychological<br />

disorder. Such persons<br />

should be treated with much<br />

love and care in order to eradicate<br />

the drugs addiction.<br />

Hello Kids,<br />

Welcome to the World of<br />

JAI HANUMAN<br />

This is the story of Pawanputra Hanuman, the<br />

mighty monkey-god.<br />

Do you know how he was born? The story of his<br />

birth is as fascinating as his mighty deeds. But<br />

to know about Hanuman, we have to go back<br />

sometime before his birth. Let us go to the palace<br />

of Lord Brahma where it all started. Do you<br />

know who Lord Brahma is? He is the Hindu god<br />

of creation. He is believed to live in a beautiful divine<br />

palace in his heavenly abode. Such was the<br />

beauty of the palace that it was a constant source<br />

of amazement for even the deities.<br />

There were a number of attendants in the celestial<br />

palace-courts of Lord Brahma. Among them was<br />

a beautiful attendant named Anjana. Once, happy<br />

with her service, Lord Brahma decided to reward<br />

her. He called her and asked what she wanted.<br />

Anjana hesitated at first. Then she replied “Lord,<br />

I wish you could remove a curse pronounced on<br />

me by a sage,”<br />

“Tell me about it. Maybe I can help you” said Lord<br />

Brahma.<br />

To be continued ...<br />

color which unify the piece. Composition<br />

is one of the most important features of<br />

graphic design, especially when using preexisting<br />

materials or diverse elements.<br />

MUSIC@ PG<br />

Santa Uzir is credited with singing<br />

more than thousand Assamese songs<br />

till date. She remains to be the most<br />

loving singer of Assam. Santa Uzir has<br />

worked with both old and new generation<br />

of Music Directors and Singers.<br />

She lend her voice to many evergreen<br />

melodies, most noted among them are<br />

“Naba Naba Bohag”, “Dehore Puronit”,<br />

“Umoli Thakute”, “Jetuka Pator dore”<br />

and many more Film, Radio and TV<br />

songs. <strong>Panorama</strong> <strong>Guwahati</strong> had a chat<br />

with this leading singer.<br />

Do you think Music has changed your<br />

life?<br />

I believe Music is the driving force in<br />

my life. Without it my life is not complete.<br />

Music has given me an Identity.<br />

Most memorable moment in your musical<br />

career?<br />

The most memorable moment in my<br />

life was meeting Lata Mangeshkar way<br />

back in 1982. I was adjudged the best<br />

singer in the Varsity week of Gauhati<br />

University. Lata ji came along with Dr.<br />

Bhupen Hazarika and other noted sing-<br />

Santa Uzir: Musical doyen of Assam<br />

ers from Mumbai for a Musical show.<br />

Bhupen da introduced me to Lata ji,<br />

thats the best memorable day in my life.<br />

Beside that,my introduction to Bhupen<br />

Hazarika at a tender age and sharing of<br />

stage with him in Sotea is also another<br />

memorable moment in my life.<br />

Among your works, what you love<br />

most?<br />

It is critical to say about my most loved<br />

works. Actually I enjoyed working with<br />

all singers and Music directors.It is my<br />

priviledge that, I worked with both older<br />

generations like late Bhupen da, Rana<br />

Da(Jayanta Hazarika), Ridip Dutta etc<br />

to New generation singers like Jubin,<br />

Dikshu, Simanta Shekhar and others.<br />

And I love all my works related to my<br />

husband, Music Director Bhupen Uzir.<br />

Who is your all time favorite?<br />

Undoubtedly it is always Lata ji(Lata<br />

Mangeshkar).<br />

What you think about <strong>Guwahati</strong>?<br />

I am not happy with the way <strong>Guwahati</strong><br />

is developing. I find it difficult to move<br />

around in the city for its rush and ever<br />

increasing populations. Increase in vehicular<br />

movements with less parking<br />

places is another problem of the city.<br />

Though it has a lovely sorrounding and<br />

places of historical importance, but<br />

due to lack of civic sense among a section<br />

of citizen, Peace is alluding us.<br />

Sarmistha Chakravorty, a singing sensation<br />

from Assam is currently staying in<br />

Mumbai with her husband Ambar Das, a<br />

well known Music Director and Drummer.<br />

Sharmistha’s latest numbers “ Dola Mur<br />

Ahibo” and “Uki Mari Gusi Jai” is an instant<br />

hit in YouTube. Presently she is working for<br />

her first solo album. We took an interview of<br />

this beautiful singer on her career, her love<br />

for music and what she feels about Guwaahati.<br />

Sarmistha, how you associate yourself<br />

with music?<br />

My association with music has been a very<br />

long one. I have been singing since my<br />

childhood and has been inspired to do so<br />

by my mother Renu Devi, who herself is<br />

a singer, composer and lyricist. She has<br />

always encouraged me to participate in<br />

various competitions and also do performances.<br />

I have been fortunate enough to<br />

have a very musical and artistic ambience<br />

in my house. This in turn have shaped and<br />

molded me into who I am today.<br />

Do you think Music changed your life?<br />

Music has really changed my life for better.<br />

It is God’s gift to us which we should never<br />

What’s Your plan for future?<br />

I am very positive with my life and<br />

family. Though My future plans are<br />

mostly associated with my two<br />

daughters and babji(husband Bhupen<br />

Uzir). Right now, I am working<br />

on many musical projects which<br />

are schedule to come one by one<br />

PHOTOS : BISWAJIT<br />

take for granted. It is the universal language<br />

that transcends all boundaries, geographical<br />

or political. No life would be complete<br />

with the beautiful language of music. My<br />

music has always been my constant companion<br />

especially during the time of adversities.<br />

It has always solaced and healed my<br />

heart in the most difficult of times.<br />

On being asked, will Sarmistha be able to<br />

live without music? She answered with a<br />

big NO!!<br />

No life without Music: Sarmistha Chakravorty<br />

Where do you see yourself after 2 years?<br />

I have been working on different musical<br />

projects as well as my own debut album,<br />

which I hope to release very soon. We<br />

have been working on it for the past several<br />

years. I really believe that any good work<br />

takes time. There are also a couple of International<br />

collaborative projects with different<br />

artists which is still in the pipeline.<br />

What you think of <strong>Guwahati</strong>?<br />

<strong>Guwahati</strong> has always been my favorite city.<br />

Its my husband Mr. Ambar Das’ hometown,<br />

moreover I have spent a long time there. I<br />

did my higher education here.Although we<br />

sometimes take it for granted, it is one of the<br />

most beautiful cities I have seen. The lovely<br />

hills, the mighty Brahmaputra, the almost<br />

florescent verdure after the April showers,<br />

the warmth of the people, all these make<br />

this place very enticing. It is home sweet<br />

home after all.

MEDIA KHABAR@ PG<br />

A Journalist by choice<br />

– Bhupen Bhattacharya<br />

TV<br />

Bhupen Bhattacharya, the<br />

Editor-in-Chief of ‘Prag’ - a satellite television<br />

news channel - believes in the<br />

power of a journalist, also regarded as<br />

the watchdog of the society. A veteran<br />

journalist, Bhupen Bhattacharya thinks<br />

that being the fourth pillar of democracy,<br />

a journalist has an important role to play.<br />

Under his able guidance, ‘Prag’has heralded<br />

a drastic change in news reporting<br />

and presentation. And today, it is one of<br />

the most popular satellite TV news channel<br />

in this region. PG, recently, had an<br />

opportunity to chat with this journalist of<br />

repute.<br />

PG: Sir, Why did you chose to be a<br />

journalist?<br />

BB: I became a journalist by choice. There<br />

are many who come to this profession accidently,<br />

but from my school days, I made<br />

it a point to be a part of this profession as<br />

I had a flair for writing. During my school<br />

days, I was influenced by the Assam Agitation<br />

which had an immense impact on<br />

me and inspired me to write more on social<br />

issues. I would regularly contribute<br />

to ‘Safura’ edited by late Bhabendranath<br />

Saikia and also ‘Asom Bani’ beside other<br />

newspapers and magazines. I step my foot<br />

into active journalism in 1988 and that is<br />

when my journey into this world began.<br />

Although I was not trained in mass communication<br />

or jounalism, but fortunately,<br />

I came in contact with vetern jounalists<br />

like Kirtinath Hazarika; Shekhar Gupta,<br />

who is the present Cditor-in-Chief of ‘The<br />

Indian Express’ and MS Prabhakara of<br />

‘The Hindu’ repute. They taught me the<br />

Watch Prime Time news everyday at 7- 8 pm<br />

AUGUST 02, 2013 PAGE - 16<br />

basics of journalism and till date, I follow<br />

the ethics taught by them while reporting<br />

or presenting news.<br />

PG: What encouraged you to foray<br />

into electronic media?<br />

BB: Before venturing into electronic Media,<br />

which began with my association<br />

with a sattelite TV news channel ‘Frontier<br />

TV’, I was part of many publications<br />

and vernacular dailies like ‘Ajir Asom’,<br />

‘Dainik Janambhumi’, ‘Amar Asom’,<br />

‘Dainik Batori’ and ‘Saptahik Asomiya<br />

Purvodaya’. Moreover, in 2011, I was<br />

New Delhi for three months as part of a<br />

project in leading national english news<br />

channel NDTV 24x7. There, I had the opportunity<br />

of working with Pranoy Roy,<br />

Barkha Dutt and others and it was my association<br />

with them from where I learned<br />

a lot about electronic journalism.<br />

PG: Do you think these days news<br />

channels are reporting and presenting<br />

news ethically?<br />

BB: No, I don’t think so. Ethics of journalism<br />

are being violated everywhere.<br />

Media, today, is a market oriented industry<br />

obsessed with TRP (Television<br />

Ratings Points), viewership and revenue<br />

generation by indulging in cheap publicity<br />

tactics. This negative aspect of such a<br />

responsible profession gives me immense<br />

pain.<br />

PG: So, what are your suggestions<br />

and views as a senior journalist?<br />

BB: I believe in changing the notion of<br />

news presentation, not from TRP point<br />

of view, but from research based news<br />

reporting. Moreover, journalists, news<br />

editors and news presenters should<br />

study well and do their homework first<br />

before news coverage. Its important for<br />

a healthy growth in the profession. I believe,<br />

a journalist has more power than<br />

anybody, with the right mobilisation<br />

of freedom of expression; he or she can<br />

bring in a drastic change in the society.<br />

PG: What you think of <strong>Guwahati</strong>?<br />

BB: Well, nevertheless the city being gifted<br />

with natural beauty, we citizens are responsible<br />

for making it a nightmare. It is<br />

the lack of civic sense among the citizens<br />

which has attributed to its downfall. I<br />

have been to many beautiful and planned<br />

cities in the country, and in comparison,<br />

<strong>Guwahati</strong> falls short in many aspects. The<br />

government is responsible to a geat extent,<br />

but we, the citizens, are also equally<br />

responsible for the sad state of our city.<br />

We can make it beautiful if the public becomes<br />

more responsible.<br />

PG: What are your future plans?<br />

BB: A human life is all about planning<br />

and execution. I do have a lot of plan for<br />

the future. At present, I am working on a<br />

couple of books for the benefit of the new<br />

generation. And also, as the Editor-in-<br />

Chief of ‘Prag’, I am planning certain programmes<br />

in order to generate awareness<br />

for the preservation of local languages<br />

and culture.<br />

THINK MAGIC<br />

Learn to think Big<br />

Youth is the hope for the future.<br />

This twenty plus generation constitute<br />

the biggest group of population<br />

in the country. Growing with<br />

the technology and the internet,<br />

one can find them chatting on the<br />

facebook or twiter, deeply absorbed<br />

within themselves but also raise<br />

their voices for political and social<br />

changes and loves fair play and justice.<br />

On the contrary tendency of<br />

not to interact with or learn from<br />

the elders and benefit from their<br />

experience has created frustration<br />

. Growing instances of criminal activity<br />

and suicide among youth become<br />

a matter of great concern.<br />

Absence of a clear vision, a dream<br />

for future is the root cause of all the<br />

evil. “Without a vision people perish”<br />

that’s what the Bible says. You<br />

can attain any goal you wish to, if<br />

you can dare to dream first. The<br />

power is not anywhere else but it<br />

is within you only. If you think you<br />

are beaten you are beaten if you<br />

think you are outclass you actually<br />

are.<br />

This is the golden age of achievement.<br />

More people are becoming<br />

successful at a faster rate now than<br />

any other time in the history. The<br />

world is full with opportunity to<br />

turn your dream into reality. There<br />

has probably never been a better<br />

time to achieve greater success,<br />

freedom, happiness and financial<br />

independence. In this age of unlimited<br />

possibilities the success laws<br />

are wide open , only prohibiting<br />

factor is the self limiting thought.<br />

Learn to think big. Small thinking<br />

is a sin. Why settle for less when<br />

the universe is offering you in<br />

abundance.<br />

Conceive a dream, exactly how you<br />

want to see yourself in the future.<br />

Nurture it with positive thought<br />

and protect it from the dream<br />

busters. Be ready to pay the price.<br />

Consistent and persistent effort<br />

always create miracle. Success is<br />

not always for the stronger or the<br />

sharper, ultimately one who wins is<br />

the one who thinks he can. The holy<br />

book also says “ Whatever you can<br />

conceive , if you can believe it with<br />

feelings, You can achieve it “<br />
