Kaho village

• Arunachal Pradesh is planning to make a documentary about one of its most “patriotic destinations” — Kaho, a village in Anjaw district on the China border — to mark the 75th year of Independence.

About:

• One of seven villages in the Kibithoo block bisected by the Lohit river, Kaho had weathered the Chinese attack in 1962. Its people had assisted the Indian soldiers who had been outnumbered.

• The village is 580 km east of Itanagar.

• Its people belong to the Meyor community.

• Anjaw is one of the 11 districts of Arunachal Pradesh that share their border with China.

• The documentary, sanctioned by the State BJP Government, is a part of the celebrations of “Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav”, the nationwide celebrations for the 75th year of Independence.

• According to the 2011 census, Kaho has only 65 residents and a literacy rate of 64.15%.

Dipa village:

• A similar publicity event was organised at Dipa village in Lower Siang district a month ago.

• Several residents of Dipa had taken part in the freedom movement and the national flag was first hoisted at the village on August 15, 1947.
