Importance of culture and tourism
India is a land of varied culture, religions and people and the social structure of the country and religious beliefs of the people attract the tourists from all over the world.
Culture has always been a major attraction of the tourists. Like the other tribal culture, the Tagin culture also has been playing very importance role in the progress and prosperity of the society. Tagin people have their own way of life which is highly being appreciated by the tourists. Since time immemorial Tagin community is known for its straight forwardness, truthfulness, courageous and highly hospitable nature. Their way of welcoming the guests by serving them Opo (rice beer), foods and meat speak volume of their respect to the guests.
Traditional dresses of Tagin like “Tase Rame” and “Lakbung” are very attractive and
wonderful items for tourists. In present day, these dresses are used for presenting
gift to the chief guest and guest of honour of Si-
Traditional and cultural dances of Tagin like Si-
The department concerned may take step for special cultural heritage package for tourists to help them explore the rich culture of the Tagin community which will ultimately promote tourism in Arunachal Pradesh. The delicious food being cooked in Bamboo may be offered to tourist as special cuisine. Such preparation of food items is very rare in Arunachal Pradesh and this may also attract large number of tourists in festive occasion.
The Tagin festival has a high degree of importance because this occasion simultaneously serves the purpose of three main important events; i.e. adieu to the elapsing year, welcome to the New Year and observation of the festival itself.
Tourist can gather many new information and experience from Tagin culture. There
are many hidden knowledge in Tagin mythology. So far no one has tried to work out
the mysterious information found in the Tagin Si-
I appeal to the Arunachal Pradesh Govt especially department of Tourism make proper policy and programme for the promotion of Tagin culture and also give due importance to Tagin area for development of cultural tourism.
Last but not least I also request our Tagin people, know your culture and preserve it.
Tacha Lusi Sorum,
There are good things too
It was enlightening to go through the thought-
I would be very pleased if critics are wise enough to suggest a revenue source apart from Hydropower. Suggest the Government one source that doesn’t have it demerits. As far as I’m aware in keeping with the universal phenomena of interdependence there can never be something at the cost of nothing. It is very easy to suggest someone that something is not right but the virtue is in giving the solution.
In progress we are in no comparison to other states, sad but true. Now, the Big QUESTION is why?
* Until recent past we have been rendered step-
* Absence or deprived Communication Systems – Transportation and Telecommunication. It is true that man has conquered the highest mountain and reached the moon but railways lines haven’t yet reached our State leave alone Airports. For a State like ours, Railways and Airports are too much to ask where even good roads would be a luxury. Apart from Itanagar, in rest of the Districts mobile network is conked which I guess requires no explanation. I never realized until I was back home that there can be such as network problems even when the signal is full. It’s not been long that we have had access to the World Wide Web.
* Too little population. For any business to sustain and boom it requires demand and demand is proportional to population.
* Absence of Industries or Companies as there is shortage of man power, resources and the State Government policies on land acquisition, ILP (Inner Line Permit) policy etc. Take for example our own country after the economic liberalization in the early 1990s, there has been exponential economic growth.
* Monopolization of the former Government for more than two long decades. What has that Government done in 20 odd years of its ruling? We have to pull up our socks as there is loads of unfinished work to wrap up. Others are 20 years ahead of us.
* You and I. Ask, what is our contribution towards the prosperity and dilapidation
of our motherland? John F. Kennedy in one of his inspirational speech said, “...
ask not what your country can do for you -
* There are no adequate higher educational institutions viz: Engineering and Medical Institutions.
Economically we may be backward, however there are good things that we can take pride
Be optimistic and we will notice that the half filled glass as half full.
