TAWANG, Nov 21: Aiming to remember the forefathers, ‘Our Ancestors’, a uniquely conceptualised programme, was organized by the NSS Unit of Dorjee Khandu Govt College, Tawang in collaboration with National Health Mission, Tawang on Friday.

“Through this programme, various resource persons from different tribes and communities of Arunachal Pradesh shall be invited to deliver lectures and shed light on different aspects of tribal life, including customs, tradition and culture etc," he stated.

Also, Dr Gyesen made a PPT presentation on ‘BON: The Pre-Buddhist Tribal Religion of the Monpas of Arunachal Pradesh’.
