Rashtriya Gorkha Mahasamellan in Darjeeling on April 29

An evening in the Darjeeling Town
Mamata Banerjee's decision to create development boards in the hills is giving rise to a new political narrative in the hills as not only the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha but also apolitical associations believe the chief minister is adopting a divide-and-rule policy for the region.
Nagarik Surasksha Samity, which is not aligned to any political parties in the hills but is a strong voice on social issues in the hills, has decided to hold Rashtriya Gorkha Mahasamellan in Darjeeling on April 29 to "once again unite" the Gorkhas from across the country.
K.K. Pradhan, the general secretary of the samity, today said: "Keeping in the mind the need to once again unite the Gorkhas to uphold the community's pride and identity, which is the need of the hour at a time the Gorkha community has been divided along community lines, we have decided to hold a Rashtriya Gorkha Mahasamellan in Darjeeling on April 29."
The samity has decided to felicitate Gorkha community members who have excelled in social work, art, music and other fields at the event.
So far, the state government has created or announced 15 development boards in the hills. While Mamata maintains that she is trying to develop the hills through the boards as the Trinamul Congress is not in control of regional and local administrative bodies, the Morcha has been alleging that she is adopting "divide-and-rule" policy to dilute the Gorkhaland demand.
The boards have helped Trinamul increase its presence in the hills given the crowds the party is attracting at its meetings of late. But the decision taken by the samity, according to observers, is reflective of the general mood of the hill people who don't totally buy Mamata's claim that the boards are only for development.
Roshan Giri, the general secretary of the Morcha, said: "We welcome the move. The samity's decision and views definitely reflect the general mood that our community is being divided through development boards to undermine the Gorkhaland demand."
From this year, Mamata has also increased the scope of activities of the boards and has entrusted them with works like constructing community halls and implementing drinking water schemes. Earlier, the boards were mostly building houses for members of different communities.(TT)

WhatsApp service to control crime

WhatsApp service to control crime
North Dinajpur police today introduced a WhatsApp service for the residents of the district as well as for visitors to seek help from or provide information to law enforcers.
The move, the police said, is to increase the liaison between the law enforcers and common people as well as to provide a platform through which people can pass on important information and suggestions for improvement of services and file complaints.
There are nine blocks in North Dinajpur district.
"In many blocks like Goalpokhor, Chopra and Chakulia, people live in remote areas. In case they want to seek help from the police or provide information, they need to travel for a long distance to reach the police station. Now that the WhatsApp service was introduced from today, these people can use the facility and they no longer need to visit the police station," a police officer said.
According to them, the facility would also help the police increase vigil across the district.
"Those sharing important information with us need not to be bothered as their identities would be kept as secret. Many people want to share information with us but hesitate to visit a police station. As the facility would be monitored from the office of the superintendent of police and messages sent to the WhatsApp number would be checked round-the-clock, the people will not face any inconvenience," the official elaborated.
The district police officers also provided the number (9593050541) that is functional now. "Even separate staff have been engaged to run the service," a police source said.
Amit Kumar Bharat Rathod, the superintendent of police of North Dinajpur, said the police would campaign across the district to apprise residents of the number. "In case of accidents and crimes, there are many witnesses. But most of them do not turn up to provide information to us. As their identities would be kept secret, we hope that they will inform us now."
The move has been appreciated by the residents of Raiganj town. "We often witness several immoral activities at different places but feel insecure to go to the police station and inform the police. But now that this service has been launched, it would help us provide information to the police as our identities would be kept as secret," a retired bank employee in Raiganj said.(TT)

Satellite health unit set up at remote Rimbick

An idea that bagged an award from the Acadèmia de Ciències Mèdiques, a forum of healthcare professionals in Barcelona, Spain, has blossomed into a fruitful project that is saving human lives in one of the farthest corners of Darjeeling district in Rimbick.
Plaban Das, a medical director of Planter's Hospital in Darjeeling, during his advanced medical studies at La Santpau hospital in Barcelona, had through his Spanish friends proposed an idea in 2009 to create a satellite healthcare unit in remote areas.
The idea we bagged the Beques de Cooperacio Academia del Mon award that carried a prize money of 200 Euros in 2009.
"Anna Goma, a Spanish doctor, has presented the idea to the academy and it bagged the first prize. It was just an idea then and wanted to replicate the same in Rimbick, where I had conducted a medical camp in 2007," said Das.
He mulled over the idea for long and once social media, more particularly WhatsApp, became common among people, he started working on the project.
"The basic idea was to ensure the people of Rimbick and its surrounding areas quick medical intervention during emergencies so that lives could be saved," said Das.
Rimbick is about 90km from Darjeeling and one has to trek 6-7km further to reach the villages of Srikhola and Daragoan.
"With the help of local people, we formed a 12-member committee and set up the Rimbick Singalila Health Care Centre, a no-loss-no-profit venture which was inaugurated on September 13, 2015," said Das.
Das made a personal contribution of Rs 2.5 lakh, along with the prize money of 100 Euros (the remaining 100 Euros was used in a project in Nigeria), while local people contributed around Rs 1 lakh. "Dr Hem Gosai, who practices in London but is from Darjeeling, later contributed Rs 1 lakh when he heard about the project," said Das.
Two nurses, one para-medic and two technicians run the two-bedded centre at Rimbick with ECG, X-ray machine, nebuliser, oxygen cylinder and lab equipment.
"Whenever there is an emergency, the nurses contact me through WhatsApp. Primary tests are done there and they send the report on Whatsapp to me. Then I prescribe preliminary treatment right away, which is important in cases like brain stroke and heart attacks," said Das.
Prakash Gurung, GTA Sabha member of the area, has also donated an ambulance to the centre.
In fact, this year, the centre observed a Stroke Survival Day, where five patient who had become paralytic and fully recovered because of immediate medical intervention were felicitated.
Shiva Rai, a hotelier, said: "I would not have been speaking to you had the centre not been there. I had gone to bed normally but in the morning, I found that my hands were paralytic and my face slanted. I could recover fully because of immediate medical intervention.
Binod Kumar Rai, a teacher of Rimbick Higher Secondary School, said: "I had a bee sting followed by fever and diarrhea. I recovered immediately. Importantly, my relative who had a stroke also recovered well."
The centre needs Rs 30,000 on an average a month to function. "They charge a minimum amount. If we were to go and meet Dr Das in Darjeeling we need to spend anything between Rs 2000 to Rs 3000. But treatment is much cheaper and efficient at the Rimbick centre," said Binod.
Das, along with other doctors visit the centre, once a month. A group of doctors from Zion Hospital in Nagaland held a free medical camp on February 15 there.
"People from Nepal also visit the centre now," said Das.
Apart from the Spanish doctor, Anna, Martha Gallego, a nurse, Pau Casan Bonet, a pianist, and Begonya Crespo Bosque held a musical event in Barcelona to support the centre.
A similar project is being worked out for Badamtam tea garden, about 20km from Darjeeling.(TT)
