Is Andaman Public cursed? 
Lagged from essential services!

20/04/2023: Mismanagement in Govt/ Private Organization can lead to a variety of negative consequences for an organization. It can result in inefficiencies, missed deadlines, poor communication, low morale among employees, and even financial losses.

There are several reasons why mismanagement can occur in Govt/ Private Organization, including lack of planning, inadequate resources, poor communication, unclear goals, and ineffective leadership.

To prevent mismanagement in Govt/ Private Organization, it is important to establish clear goals and objectives for the organization, and ensure that everyone understands their roles and responsibilities. Effective communication channels should be established to keep everyone informed about the progress of various projects and initiatives. Adequate resources, including funding, staffing, and technology, should be made available to ensure that tasks can be completed efficiently and effectively.

In addition, it is important to have effective leadership in place, with managers who have the necessary skills and experience to manage teams and projects effectively. Regular training and development programs can also help to ensure that managers are equipped with the latest knowledge and techniques to manage their teams and projects successfully.

Overall, preventing mismanagement in Govt/ Private Organization requires a proactive approach that involves careful planning, effective communication, adequate resources, and strong leadership. By addressing these factors, organizations can minimize the risks associated with mismanagement and achieve their goals more effectively.

But in Andaman, common public completely depends upon govt. and business organizations, ultimately due the coordination or nexus between Govt and Private Organizations public forced to suffer for essential services and infrastructure, such as...... you know.

Water, Essential Commodities, LPG, and Electricity are the basic needs these days to survive human beings on this planet. Govt. rules, govt. changes, but on the pretext of fulfilment of the said essentials political parties gets votes and even after 76 years of Independence the situation of common man is same.

Administration ignores Media?

No press conferences by LG, CS, DGP or any HoDs!

13/04/2023: The media plays an essential role in any democratic society. It serves as a watchdog, holding those in power accountable and providing citizens with the information they need to make informed decisions. However, when the media is ignored by the government, this vital function is compromised, and the very foundation of democracy is threatened.

When the government ignores the media, it can create an environment in which corruption and abuses of power can thrive. Without the scrutiny of the press, officials may feel emboldened to engage in actions that are not in the public interest. This can lead to a breakdown of trust between citizens and their government, as well as a sense of powerlessness among the people.

Moreover, when the media is ignored by the government, it can lead to a lack of transparency and accountability. Officials may be less likely to share information with the public, and there may be fewer opportunities for citizens to provide feedback on government policies and decisions.

To address these challenges, it is essential that the media be supported and protected. Governments must recognize the importance of a free and independent press and take steps to ensure that journalists are able to do their work without fear of retaliation.

Ultimately, a vibrant and independent media is essential for a healthy democracy. When the media is ignored by the government, it is not just journalists who suffer - it is the entire society that is put at risk. By recognizing the importance of a free and independent press and taking steps to support it, governments can help to ensure that citizens are informed, empowered, and engaged in the democratic process.

That was long ago CS, DGP, Directors of various departments used to give yearly updates to the media to let know the status and up-gradations made in the A&N Administration and to set a target to do better in the years to come. But, now?

Press Conferences become last priority in Isles

06/04/2023, Lack of Transparency: If a department or organization does not organize press conferences, there may be a lack of transparency about their actions and decisions. This can lead to speculation and rumors, which can damage their reputation.

Missed Opportunities: Press conferences provide an opportunity to communicate directly with the media and the public. If a department or organization does not organize press conferences, they may miss out on opportunities to address concerns and issues and shape the way their messages are portrayed in the media.

Difficulty in Controlling the Narrative: If a department or organization does not organize press conferences, they may have difficulty controlling the narrative and shaping the way their messages are portrayed in the media. This can lead to misinterpretation and misinformation.

Limited Reach: Without press conferences, a department or organization may have limited reach and struggle to disseminate information to a wide audience. This can make it difficult for them to communicate effectively and engage with the public.

Lack of Accountability: By not organizing press conferences, a department or organization may appear to be avoiding accountability and responsibility for their actions and decisions. This can damage their reputation and erode public trust.

However, not organizing press conferences can have several negative consequences, including a lack of transparency, missed opportunities, difficulty in controlling the narrative, limited reach, and a lack of accountability, which is presently prevailing in these Islands.

It become practice in every Department or Institution these days in A&N Islands that, if any programme, scheme, activity, action, decision they take or organise or launch simple they do themselves and use to send a press release through email, requesting publication of the same. Is it not called my may Highway or only one-way?

Natural or Human-made causes! 
Who is responsible?

30/03/2023: If the weight increase is minimal, such as a few people reside around or some additional vegetation growing, the island may not experience any noticeable changes. If the weight increase is significant, such as building a large structure or adding a large amount of material to the island, it could cause the island to sink or subside. This is because islands are often composed of loose sediment or coral, and adding weight can compress the underlying material, causing it to sink. If the weight increase is unevenly distributed, such as building a heavy structure on one side of the island, it could cause the island to tilt or lean towards that side. This could potentially destabilize the island and make it more vulnerable to erosion or collapse. If the weight increase is caused by a large number of people or animals inhabiting the island, it could lead to environmental impacts such as habitat destruction, soil erosion, and pollution. This could have negative consequences for the island's ecosystem and biodiversity.

Risk on the island: Occurs when the land surface gradually sinks due to natural processes or human activities. Subsidence can be caused by factors such as sediment compaction, groundwater extraction, and tectonic movements; As global temperatures continue to rise, sea levels are also rising due to the melting of glaciers and ice caps. This can cause low-lying islands to become submerged or eroded; Islands are often vulnerable to erosion due to their exposure to waves and other natural forces. Erosion can cause the island to gradually shrink in size and eventually disappear; Events such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and hurricanes can cause significant damage to islands and result in sinking or subsidence; and Human activities such as dredging, mining, and oil and gas extraction can cause subsidence or sinking of an island. In some cases, excessive groundwater extraction can also lead to subsidence.

Hence, it's important to carefully consider the potential consequences before undertaking any activities that could affect the island's natural balance.

Man made AI challenging human skills; 
Manpower forced to adapt relevant technology

23/03/2023: Artificial Intelligence (AI) has become one of the most talked-about topics in recent years. With advancements in machine learning, natural language processing, and computer vision, AI has already started to impact various industries, and its impact on the job market is a topic of debate.

It's true that AI has the potential to automate many routine and repetitive tasks, which can result in the displacement of jobs. However, AI also creates new job opportunities and enhances the productivity and efficiency of existing jobs.

One of the sectors most affected by the automation of jobs through AI is manufacturing. Robots and automated machines are replacing human workers in assembly lines and other routine tasks. However, this has also created new job opportunities in programming, maintenance, and monitoring of these machines.

Similarly, the healthcare industry is also benefiting from the application of AI, as it helps in diagnosing diseases and providing personalized treatments. AI can also be used to analyze large amounts of patient data, which can improve patient outcomes and reduce healthcare costs.

Moreover, AI is not just limited to these industries; it is also being used in other areas such as customer service, finance, and marketing. AI-powered chatbots are now common in customer service, providing 24/7 assistance to customers. AI algorithms are also used in finance to analyze data and make investment decisions.

In conclusion, while AI is undoubtedly going to automate many jobs, it is also creating new job opportunities and making existing jobs more productive and efficient. Therefore, it's crucial for individuals and organizations to adapt to this new technology and develop new skills to remain relevant in the job market.

All Projects Success! ; 
Public still Thirsty & Undated?

16/03/2023: The Govt. of India always stood in front to sanction funds for development of Andaman and Nicobar Islands and for the welfare of people residing here. It is well known to the people of A&N Islands that thousands of crores have been released since the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) came into power at centre. Whether it is construction of highway (NH-4) or for Solar Panel Installation / 12 MW Power Diesel Generator, or even Rutland Water Project, the govt. at centre never back off from any approval of developmental projects. 

The Administration claim all projects completed and says, 'Rutland Water Project commissioned 6.70 MLD of freshwater available for Port Blair town'; 'People no need to suffer from electricity crisis as Solar Panel / 12 MW Power Diesel Generator installed'; and 'better road connectivity from Port Blair to North Andaman (NH-4) will be completed very soon'.

Consequently, with full confidence upon the A&N Administration, Works Awarded Agencies, Engineers, Researchers and Public Exchequer, the Govt. at Centre assumes all is well in Andaman and Nicobar Islands and with its people. Ironically, the situation in Andaman and Nicobar Islands didn't change a bit to get respite from the electricity crisis and water scarcity at the actual ground. 

People are still facing water curtailments, heavy power cuts and improper road issues at several areas in A&N Islands. It hints that, something is lacking while planning and executing the projects in Andaman & Nicobar Islands as research of solar feasibility, proper survey for electricity and water consumption (revenue and encroachment properties), and very crucially a responsible and sincere official to have a look at corruption and mismanagement. These are the challenges which are required to be worked on to meet the meaningful end.

A quote that matches this situation best is "Every time you mistreat someone, you reveal the part of you that lacks love and needs to heal." - Kemi Sogunle

Say Good Bye to Plastic Bags - “It is Better for your Generations”

TMI Bureau Port Blair, Oct 02: As part of National Campaign against the single-use plastic and on the occasion of 150th Birth Anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Over 25000 cloth bags (made by Skill Development Centre, DBRAIT) were distributed to general public for free by DBRAIT in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands on Oct 02, 2019. At different distribution points, people at large numbers collected the cloth bags in exchange of a polythene bag. Background: Less than 50 years ago plastic bags were a rarity in the world. In Andaman it's just a decade ago Polyethylene were came into use, but badly affected a lot. Before plastic bags, there was paper or cloth. Paper bags worked but they were not easy to carry and they weren't nearly as strong as plastic. The most important part is paper was more expensive to produce than plastic. The cost of disposal and clean up of plastic bags comes back to the tax payer, hazardously. However, polyethylene (the most common type of plast
