Khandu hailed the Tibetans, who despite being settled in a different country, have maintained utmost cordial relationship with local indigenous communities while preserving their rich Buddhist culture, tradition and language.

He said, “I make a point to visit the Tibetan settlements whenever on tour. I have visited both the settlements in Eastern Arunachal and found that the indigenous communities around these settlements have in fact benefitted from the Tibetans.

Khandu explained that local Arunachalee people have learnt so much from the Tibetan settlers in practicing and keeping alive their traditional textile and handloom, their language and their rich culture.

The Chief Minister, for the umpteenth time, beckoned indigenous communities of the state to pass on their respective culture, traditions and language to the next generation. He said the state government is committed to preserve the rich cultural heritage of each indigenous community of the state but asserted that the responsibility lies more on today’s generation of elders, seniors and parents.

He conveyed the same message to the Tibetans, who are today spread and settled across the world.

Referring to a message from the Dalai Lama, which was read out earlier, Khandu reiterated teaching human values to students along with formal education – essence of Dalai Lama’s message.

“I would like to reiterate His Holiness Dalai Lama’s message that our focus should be on inculcating compassion and human values in our children. And also teach them about the significance of our environment, climate and our planet,” he said.
