KAZIRANGA, March 14 - Putting all kind of confusion at rest, two visiting research scholars from Japan have asserted that Meghalaya is receiving the highest rainfall, indicating that the overall ecological system in the state is still very much intact even though there were large scale anthropogenic activities in the other seven sister states.
This observation was based on the preliminary analysis made by Dr Yusuke Yamane and Dr Azusa Fukushima from the University of Tokoha and Kobe Gaukin University from Japan respectively. They also observed Bangladesh is always confronted with one or more major natural calamities in a year including cyclones, hailstorms because of its geographical location, during their deliberations at JDSG college of Bokakhat.
Dr. Jayanta Gogoi, Principal of JDSG College informed this correspondent that the visit of the two research scholars from Japan was a part of a collaborative programme between the institutions from Japan and the JDSG College and a rainfall monitoring gauge had been installed by the Japanese scholars at the college to analyse the parameters recorded at the end of the year. This would also give a clear status of rainfall in Assam and adjoining places.
