KMSS Secy to surrender!

Kamal Medhi is likely to surface at any moment. The KMSS general secretary is believed to have been preparing to surface before the police after the Supreme Court turned down his anticipatory bail on Wednesday in the Dispur self-immolation case on February 24.  

Sources told Assam Times that the elusive leader who has been booked in the sensational self immolation of Pranab Boro has intimated his decision to the authorities through proper channel.  

The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected interim bail for Kamal Medhi who has been booked in connection with the Pranab Boro self immolation case.

The division bench of the apex court heard the petition moved on his behalf where the KMSS general secretary was denied bail in view of the seriousness of the case pending against him with the Dispur police station.

Medhi moved the top court after the Gauhati High Court refused to grant him anticipatory bail in connection with the sensational case where a KMSS activist died in self immolation attempt in Dispur on February 24.

Hiroshima Day: Let us worship peace and shun violence

6 Aug 2008 - 1:07pm | editor
Every year, peace loving people all over the world, and more so in Japan , observe 6th August as Hiroshima Day in memory of the millions killed and/ or maimed for life for generations to come.

Hiroshima day is a grim reminder of the dropping of the first atom bomb (ironically named Little Boy), 63 years ago, by the U.S. on the helpless and innocent citizens of Hiroshima . The Uranium bomb detonated at precisely 8.15 am, 2000 feet above the ground surface, turning a beautiful Monday morning into an inferno of unprecedented destruction.

As of today, the death toll ( due to immediate loss of life and the long drawn out radiation impacts) stands at 242,437. About 270,000 A-Bomb affected people ,called Hibakusha, live in Hiroshima today.

The second round of terror was unleashed 3 days later (9 August) with the exploding of a Plutonium bomb (called the Fat Man), directly above the Urakami Cathedral, annihilating the city of Nagasaki.

Even military experts felt that these bombs were not necessary to win the war, whose fate was virtually sealed against Japan . They were a brash announcement of the arrival of the new leader of the capitalist world, the US imperialism. Since then the US' ambition to be controller of the world has found reflection in their tactics in national and foreign policies. Atomic weapons have now given way to the more lethal nuclear weapons threatening lives world wide, as never before.

Today, Hiroshima stands tall as a picturesque and clean city; a city of peace that is almost crime free. It bears testimony to the indomitable spirit of the Japanese people, to their faith in life and in the goodness of humanity.

On this sombre day let us join hands with all like minded, peace loving people of this planet to shun war and violence in any form.

The possibility of a nuclear attack in the 21st century is not far fetched. Terrorist attacks by the so called 'jehadis' , the 'cocking a snook behaviour' and the brash insolence of the economically/ politically powerful, the communal violence perpetrated in the name of religion, the inhuman treatment of women in many parts of the world--- all these are acts of terror that can never be justified. What sometimes start as seemingly small acts of childhood intolerance and aggressive behaviour eventually end up in abject disregard for human life and cruel intolerance towards others.

Hiroshima Day should remind us of the importance of peaceful coexistence so that we never start a war. Militarism is wrong and there is no glory in war. Taking a human life is the most inhuman act and does not justify any end.

It would be pertinent here to quote from the memoirs of Dr. Richard Feynman, an eminent physicist, who was closely associated with the famous Manhattan Project ( for the making of the atom bomb) headed by Dr.Bob Wilson. Feynman recalls: "After the thing went off, there was tremendous excitement at Los Alamos . Everybody had parties, we all ran around. But one man, I remember, Bob Wilson, was just sitting there moping. He said, It's a terrible thing that we made."

It is high time we brought the terror of annihilation to an end so that our children grow up in a world free of nuclear weapons and communal prejudices.

Let us vow to celebrate life and not glorify death. Let us live and let others live. Let us as citizens, reject the Indo US Nuclear Deal.
