The Apatanis have two occasions in a year when everything can wait but their works in the paddy fields. One is now - time for transplantation of paddy saplings. The other would be in October - harvesting time.
Its a joy to look at the irrigation channels - siigañs these days. This is the time when the water should be flowing continuously in these channels.
As children, we used to put paper boats at the origin of this siigañ and follow the course till it joins back the original river downstream.
