1. What’s this blog about?
Initially, it started something like this:
“This blog is a small attempt to highlight issues related to Arunachal Pradesh as a whole and Ziro-Hapoli in particular that this author feels needs to be raised or the smallest of happening in this whole universe that has made this author ponder twice.”
But now, this blog has entries ranging from personal accounts to travellog to poems to photography to cartoons, sketches and digital illustrations and even tips on blogger besides issues related to what it (blog) started for. So, now the blog has become, should I say, ‘a little bit of everything’ with more emphasis on issues related to Arunachal Pradesh.
2. How all it started?
When I returned back to my hometown-Ziro (Hapoli), to my state-Arunachal Pradesh, after spending about a decade away from home, I was quite shocked to see the state of affairs here. Actually, I couldn’t understand how the system was running. I tried to reason out with the so called bureaucrats, technocrats, social workers, politicians and even the common populace, but in vain. All they were interested in was to stuff their coffers at the expense of development and the society and state as a whole. So, I thought, why not reach out to the younger generations, those pursuing their studies or working outside the state. May be I could connect with them and put my views forward; who knows, in future we may have a better society, a better system and a better Arunachal.
Apart from that I wanted to shed my inhibition in putting my views and had this urge to improve my writing. Hope I would be able to achieve that through this blog.
3. Who’s this AG?
Well, for now, I’m as concerned an Arunachalee as you are who want to see my state at par with other states of the country. Besides the above the question, I’ve been asked:
Are you a Journo?
No, I’m not.
Are you a philanthropist?
Donate me your money, and you bet I could turn one. Jokes apart, may be, say after a decade or so, I may turn towards philanthropic works but as of now ‘No’.
Are you a social worker?
Hmmm….some sort of. Don’t you think I’m doing social service by raising the issues that normally people would ignore, through my blog ;)
Why don’t you come out in open? Are you a chicken?
