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.

All the festivals of Arunachal Pradesh should be taken by their govt & Central govt to other states with collaboration with that states. All states should set up within them a "North-East Nagri" where People from north east will settle down for business purpose & will also showcase their culture & tradition through fairs & melas. And this is possible through back up & intrest of both Centre, State & Concerned State. If Arunachal & other NE states follow this methods, lead to culture fusion.

The far Northeast part of India - Arunachal Pradesh has always been in a class by itself for its quirky culture and people. Phloethra of tribes are nestled in this region, which makes it extraordinary cultural center, and must visit over a holiday in India. No wonder, there's nothing like Arunachal Pradesh when it comes to the cultural holidays. And there's no better way to understand the heady mix of people, culture, and tradition than to be a part of any of the fair, and festivals of Arunachal
