The lives of the Apatanis have always been inextricably interwoven with nature. Sanji Apu, one of the most beautiful wild flowers is connected with the lives of the people in many ways.
When the parent prepare themselves to go to the jungle to work, the children insist that they too would like to accompany them. The parent cajole the children into staying back promising that they will get Sanji Apu and Neha Apu from the jungle. Here is a picture of the Sanji Apu which I found at Dusu Katu. I will post more about Dusu Katu in the later postings.
Sanji Apu also announce the advent of Myoko festival, the festival of friendship.
