Bachiñ Aai

Bachiñ, diirañ-sañkhañ, taaro. All jungle fruits. The seasons of these fruits were incentives to go to the jungles for any kind of work. It is the season of bachiñ these days.

Some friends, these days, are talking about planting these wild fruit trees in the bamboo gardens - in fact replacing the bamboos with all kinds of fruit trees and other more useful trees like salyo. What about bamboo? They can be grown in the outskirts of the Ziro valley in the areas of traditional sansuñs. Sounds like some people have started thinking!
