India is a country of festivals.All of us like festivals.But festivals of Arunachal are lesser known to the rest of the country.They should be given a wide publicity through the media.This will draw attention of artists, businessmen, students and researchers towards Arunachal which in turn bring prosperity to Arunachal and its people.The people of Arunachal will also get greater chance to learn about the rest of the country through interaction. Not only the Government we all should work for it.
