原文标题：Brahmaputra dries up Arunachal! China responsible?
The Siang (Brahmaputra) river originating from Tibet was suddenly found to have almost dried up at a town in Arunachal Pradesh, a state government spokesman said on Wednesday night.
People of century-old Pasighat town in East Siang district found that the water level of the river receded so much on Wednesday evening that it almost dried, Tako Dabi said.
Dabi, also the political advisor to Chief Minister Nabam Tuki, expressed apprehension that China could have diverted the water of the river, which is known as Yarlong Tsangpo in Tibet, or there could be some artificial blockade due to which this has happened.
On June 9, 2000, the water level of Siang rose suddenly by 30 m and inundated almost the entire township causing widespread destruction to property besides claiming seven lives following the collapse of a hydropower dam in Tibet, said Dabi, who himself inspected the dried bed of the river.
Dabi suggested that the Centre and its agencies like the Central Water Commission should immediately conduct a study in collaboration with the state government to find the crux of the problem.
The panic of the people cannot be simply brushed off, he said.
Yarlung Tsangpo, the highest river in the world, is a watercourse that originates at Tamlung Tso Lake in western Tibet, southeast of Mount Kailash and Lake Manasarovar.
It later forms the South Tibet Valley and Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon, before entering India at Tuting in Arunachal as Siang, takes the name of Brahmaputra in Assam and enters Bangladesh and is known as Megna.
In the Upper Mekong Basin in Yunnan Province, China has planned to construct eight cascade hydropower dams, the first of which, the Manwan Dam, was completed in 1996.

China is destroying the natural balance of the region, as it is overconfident that no nation can touch it, It has become a regional Bully,an arrogant country, consumed with greed and grandiose designs of Universal/Global dominance. It as changed the course of brahmaputra river and later on it would also want to change the course of Earth Rotation/Revolution to suit it energy needs and global/universal ambitions.
Nations need to look, as Brahmaputra which was the source of livelihood for many millions of people is being dried, maybe next many more rivers, seas, etc to suit a single country overambitious designs and greed.
India in this regard, cannot voice its people’s concern, as it is afraid of china, as we see it doing nothing in POK(Gilgit) region gifted by pakistan to china, nor in Ladakh.
Only USA and Europe can rein in China.

China plans to dry up the Brahmaputra. V have no plan to as what to do with the Ganga and other rivers. Water is being wasted and there is no plan to link the rivers and make the land prosperous..

why don’t you learn English to stay connected ?? what is need to learn such useless language ?? Another point is Hindi is directly proportional to backwardness …more Hindi is more backward…all Hindi states are backward … if Hindi people come to your state, your state will become backward … more Hindi people are going to Maharashtra , so Maharashtra is becoming backward…. so do not let these Hindi p!gs come to your state ….

The flooding has killed millions in India and bangladesh, China is solving the problem and also is getting benefits…..it is generating hydro power and hence it’s environmental friendly,,,,
China is diverting the river to hydro plants and nothing else…all water comes to river after going through their dams….
Media is creating baseless allegations on China.
Even if China violates some laws then India can approach international bodies for solutions no need to trade guns and missiles for small things…

Bramhaputra is indeed a biggest water source in NE, however, its not the DRYING up which is the real danger, its the flooding which is going to cause the real danger.
Politically its going to be massive for India to handle if China is doing it on purpose.

What about dams in India?
by jony bordoloi (View MyPage) on Mar 01, 2012 12:25 PM | Hide replies
A person in Delhi or Mumbai may not be aware but construction of dams in Arunachal Pradesh itself is creating a furor among rural Assamese people living in downstreams. These people depend on agriculture in the floodplains and fishing and the dams are going to change the flow pattern of these rivers and ultimately threaten their livelihood. Both the congress led state govts. of Assam & AP along with the centre are turning a blind eye to this and want to construct the dams by hook or by crook in a dictatorial manner. The Lower Subansiri Project at Gerukamukh is one such dam. The govt. itself is doing this in its own country. It should first stop its own wrongdoing and then point finger at China.

guest, only india boycotting chinese goods will not affect china much, as china’s export to india is hardly $38 billion. we should convince our great friendly countries like usa,uk,south east asis,japan etc to also boycott chinese goods as their trade with china is nearly 8 to 10 times that of us. only then will china come to its knees, india is too small a fry for them.

Should stop all import from China. India should build dams on all 5 rivers ( rawi, satlu, jehlum, vayas & chenab ) which are going to Pakistan from Kashmis & Punjab & divert the water towards required areas. But our govt & political leadership have not courge to do the same.

Border Demarcation With China
by Balan Iyer (View MyPage) on Mar 01, 2012 09:57 AM | Hide replies
It is more than 60 years since we attained Ind ependence from the Brits;but the trajedy isour Govts starting from PtNehru’s first Govt never bothered to demarcate our border with China. Especially during the earliest years after our Independence,we had a ripe moment, when China was embroiled in the Korean War, to force the border demarcation with China,but our PtNehru in his frenzied mood of China coddling,even went to the extent of offering his sevices of mediation to help China during the Korean War. So,the problem is even if China swollowed Arunachal Pradesh,we would remain helpless.

Dont blame PtNehru.He was an excellent diplomatist.It was his adept skills that forced Chinese leaders to give up Arunachal virtually.

taiwan is no comparison to china -its geographical area is 36,000 sq kms & population 23 million. chin’s area 9,650,000 sq kms population 134 crores. moreover china’s trade with taiwan is $250 billion, whereas with india’s it is less than $8 billion. in this view why will taiwan substitute india for china which is only 135 nautical miles away, & too powerful a neighbour. for your information taiwan does not invite dalai lama to their country so as not to offend china.
by Abhik RayChaudhury (View MyPage) on Mar 01, 2012 06:43 AM
This is possible. China has meddled before with other northeastern separatist groups in the past. Chinese support to Pakistan is also predominantly aimed at keeping India preoccupied in South Asia. Given that countries claim to AP it will not be surprising if China plays the river card.
