Kaho Village in Arunachal Pradesh

Kaho: Arunachal Pradesh

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.

  • 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.
