World Population Day


The most recent world population studies conducted by the United States Census Bureau (USCB) estimates the world population at a staggering 7.014 billion as on March 2012. The reports at the United Nations Population Fund suggest that world population crossed a milestone on 31st October, 2011. Growing population is a cause of major concerns because a world which is getting continuously crowded will have great repercussion on natural resources which sustain all living organisms. Unrestrained growth in population has already started exhibiting telling effects on the world natural resources which are gradually receding at a fast depletion rate. To make the general masses aware to the hazard of such a situation the Council of the United Nations Development Program recommended in 1989 following its decision 89/46 to observe 11th July as World Population Day. The primary concern with observing a day entirely as World Population Day was to center attention on the immediacy and consequence of population issues in the context of overall development plans and programs and the need to find solutions for these issues of the effects of growing population. The greatest identifiable threat caused due to over population is the alarmingly fast depletion of natural resources and threat to sustainability. But albeit being a threat to life itself, the World Population is also an opportunity to celebrate the spirit of brotherhood and to realize the responsibility we have towards another in this great big world we call our family. The sentiment is echoed in the following excerpt from the world message delivered by BanKi-Moon, secretary general of the United Nations at the World Population Day celebration on the 11th of July, 2011 This years World Population Day falls during a milestone year, when we anticipate the birth of the Earths seven billionth inhabitant. This is an opportunity to celebrate our common humanity and our diversity. It is also a reminder of our shared responsibility to care for each other and our planet. People worldwide celebrate the day variously. Most UNFPA Country Offices have ear-marked the day for day long celebrations including events like poster or essay contests, or sports events concerts to actualize awareness to the cause.

This article aims to remind the people of democratic nation like ours where women are equally responsible for freedom and contributed developmental activities towards the nation .But unfortunately we forget their contribution and treat women as a sort of thing in the society. Therefore, this article is set to recall the influential words for women by our Father of Nation Mahatma Gandhi . In his article Young India and Harijan,Bapuji said that men and women are different in physical but in many matters especially those of tolerence and sacrifices, the Indian women are superior to male.The history of women in India has been eventful. Women and harijans were rightly seen by Gandhi as the two most depressed groups in Indian society, since their disabilities had certain specifications which needed special attention. He was one of the few leaders who believed in the equal dignity of both men and women and in womens absolute freedom for selfrealization. He did not see women

The Wicked Prince


(A Jataka Tale)

as objects of reforms, as helpless creature deserving charitable concern, instead he was concerned with about radical social construction. In South Africa, Gandhiji first encountered with women empowerment. He learned a lesson there, Many of our movements stopped half a way because of the poor condition of our women. So, he was taking the initiation for upliftment of womenfolk and tried to expand their rights. The message of Gandhi in All India Women Conference 1936, when women, whom we call Abala become Sabala,all those who are helpless will become powerful reflects that the Gandhi gave crucial importance to the issue of womens freedom and strength in the struggle to build a human and exploitation free society. He rightly stated that if women were to be free they had to be fearless. In support of his words Gandhi quoted the examples of Sita whom the mighty Ravan dared not to touch, Rani Lakshmi Bai who fought against Britishers for her Jhansi. Through this

example he tries to insist women on the inviolability of the personal dignity and fearless women. He believed that women have right to say no even to her husband and right to take divorce if a husband was unjust. Gandhi said that women can obtain all the things through Satyagraha quoting example of Mira Bai (according to Gandhi Mira Bai is symbol of Satyagraha). In autobiography of Gandhi you will find that he admitted that the technique of non-violence, passive resistance and following the path of truth, he learned it from women especially from his wife Kasturba and mother Putli Bai. He believed that women have power of knowledge to teach every one and the true ornament of women is virtue, nonviolent, Stayagraha. Gandhi wanted women to act as moral guardians of society, as social worker and do goodness without competing with men folk in the sphere of power and politics because that would be reversion to barbarity. He felt that women should take up the activities like education and self-confidence.Thousands of unsung

and unnoticed females of India learned a lot from Gandhis worthy words and now a days you will find women representatives in every field of our nation. In the above lines Gandhiji portrayed women as an encouraging factor of his life and women can do everything what man does. Many reformers like Gandhi were trying to uplift our women folk but still women are counted as a backward class, deprived group of the society. National crime records bureau(1998) says that growing rate of crimes against women would be higher than the population growth rate by 2010. This kind of things is an evidence that there is no place for women where she is treated as a human and still we are treat women as a sort of things in the society. So,today also we need to recall Gandhian thought about women and practice it in our society not only in theory but in practical way.Lastly,it is a high time to check our loopholes and mostly the women, who should come forward to fight against their weakness, rights and ignorance.

In my childhood, I was always captivated by the charm of the Jataka Tales and later realized that the Jataka Tales contain deep truths, and are calculated to impress lessons of great moral beauty. The obvious lessons are many of them suitable for my little friends, and beneath the obvious there are depths and depths of meaning which they may learn to fathom later on. The oriental setting lends an additional fascination. Quaint humor and gentle earnestness distinguish these legends and they teach many wholesome lessons, among them the duty of kindness to animals. Jataka stories speak eloquently of those human values, which contribute, to harmony, pleasure and progress. For developing moral conduct and good behavior, there is little more instructive foundation than Jataka stories. All Jataka stories hold out advice on how to correct our ways. They played and continue to play in some societies an enormous role in the cultivation of peace and generosity. The Jatakas, or Birth-stories, form one of the sacred books of the Buddhists and relate to the adventures of the Buddha in his former existences, the best character in any story being identified with the Master. The Jataka tales are dated between 300 BC and 400 AD. The Jataka stories, over millennia, have been seminal to the development of many civilizations, the cultivation of moral conduct and good behavior, the growth of a rich and varied literature in diverse parts of the world and the inspiration for painting, sculpture and architecture of enduring aesthetic value. Many of the tales are set in or near Benares, now called Varanasi, a city in north central India on the Ganges River. One of the worlds oldest cities, Varanasi is the most sacred place for Hindus, Buddhists and Muslims also have important religious sites nearby. According to tradition, Buddha began his teaching at Sarnath a short distance from this city. Part of the canon of sacred Buddhist literature, this collection of some 550 anecdotes and fables depicts earlier incarnations sometimes as an animal, sometimes as a human of the being who would become Siddhartha Gautama, the future Buddha. Jataka stories are well depicted in Amaravati, Nalanda, Ajanta, Ellora, Bharut, Nagarjunikonda, Borobudur and Angkor Vat. At this point I wish to draw the young friends special attention to the story of The Wicked Prince, from the collection of Saccankira Jataka73. When you read or listen to these very old stories, if you wonder how much it is really true, you should test the meaning, weigh or consider it, and depend on your own intuition to know the truth of it. Then follow and practice what you know to be true. Happy Reading! There was a prince. He was as harsh as a poisonous snake. Abusing and kicking others amused him. No one in the palace or outside liked him. He was an eye sore, a ravenous demon. So, everyone called him the Wicked Prince. Once, the Wicked Prince went to bathe in the river. He told his attendants- Come! Take me to midstream to bathe. The attendants took him to midstream. Instantly the sky was overcast and a pall of gloom descended upon the scene. The attendants sank. the prince under the cover of darkness and swam back to the banks. The king asked them- Where is my son ? They replied- Your Majesty! We have no idea. At the sight of an overcast sky, he must have dived and swam ahead. The king ordered a search, but the prince was nowhere to be found. In fact, the prince was washed away in the rain-flooded waters and caught hold of a log floating by. He at once jumped upon it. Down the stream, a snake and a mouse also joined him on the log to save their lives. There was a cotton tree besides the river, which was uprooted by the flow of water, and the parrot resting in it also had to take refuge on the floating log. Thus, there were now four creatures on it. There was a cottage in the forest beside the river, where the Bodhisatva did penance. He heard mournful cries in the night. His heart was filled with loving-kindness and pity. He decided to save the lives of these creatures. Do not fear, do not fear, called the Bodhisatva and jumped into the river. He swam against (contd. on P-4)...

Delong is a popular male dance of the Adis performed usually during Solung Etor festival observed in May. Delong is also frequently performed during amusement occasions. During Delong dance the dancers wear loin cloth and male jacket, the traditional costume of the people. Many of them also wear male beads around their neck to add grandeur to the occasion. Each dancer also holds a fan fashioned out of feathers of birds or dry plantain bark, and waves it in unison in harmony with the tune of the singer as they dance around the community building called Musup or Dere. The singer leader who is known as Miri, the balladeer, narrates the story of creation, birth of men and animals as also about beginning of cultivation and establishment of social and cultural life by men in the world. The Miri, while holding a fan, ambles rhythmically and trips inside the circle of dancers in the hall as he describes his story in rhymes. The dancers echo his refrain which is frequently altered by the singer leader to break monotony in his singing. The dance called, Etor Delong, though being a male ritual dance, can also be joined by womenfolk. The dance is traditionally held for three nights. Villagers throng the Musup to listen to the narration of the myth called, Aabang, as also to enjoy the dance. The aesthetic beauty of the various dance movements of the dancers displayed and the melodious singing of the Miri are

highly relished by the audience. Delong is also performed on other merry-making and certain festive occasions by people of both the sexes. Even women also perform this on certain occasions. During such events the theme of the song veer from the traditional ritual theme and centers on the particular event of the day.

making and service delivery abilities fulfilling the dreams of the people. To maintain and broaden public confidence, they should test and measure their values, ethics and their actions, added the senior MLA. He said that Education is one of the most important means of empowering girls with the knowledge, skills and self-confidence necessary to participate fully in the development process. This is true not only because education is an entry point to other opportunities, but also because the educational achievements of girls can have ripple effects within the family and across generations. Investing in girls education is one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty. It also helps them to know their rights and to gain confidence to claim them. Mothers education is usually more influential than the fathers, he said, adding that an educated mothers greater influence in household negotiations may allow her to secure more resources for her children.

I am putting my best efforts to make all the schools safe and welcoming places for girls, reducing the household chores on girls, providing learning materials for schools to function effectively, advocating parents and communities to give priority to educating their girls as well as boys, he added. In his deliberation, Dabii reposed faith on the district administration that it would lay emphasis on promoting the local owners of micro, small and medium scale industries as they have tremendous potentials for generating employment and enabling rural development. The government policies should encourage selfemployment. Earlier, DC R.K Mishra said that We have come a long way on sustainable development for wellbeing of our future generations, but there are lots to do to be competitive in the modern world.

In his words, if Panchayat leaders are hammers, the government officers are the keys. You can break a lock with a hammer, but wouldnt be better to open it rather.

Nocte Rangsom An Indigenous Faith & Culture


The Rangsom is an indigenous Faith & Culture of the Noctes of Tirapdistrict, Arunachal Pradesh. It is a believed in the existence of all powerful unseen God in the sky.In the past, this RangsomFaith was common to all the ethnic groups of Noctes, and instilleda sobering effect on them at the time of feuds and rivalry. It was afactor in bringing emotional integration and rational approachamong various groups ofNoctes.Itis a believed in the Supreme BeingcalledRang-kathak or just Raang.The God may be called Jooban, Jongban, Yongban and Huababy various groups of Noctes. But, the believed in Rang-kathak is common to all Noctes.In fact, the Nocte culture gets reflected in this Faith.All the traditional socio-religious functions are being performed with solemnity and faith in Rang-kathak. Earlier every Nocte village had a chief called Lowang, Luwang or Luajang. There were also bigger chief for every group or a number of villages, and the tribute paid to them were also a form of Rangsom. The chief was the head of the village and, often acted as a revered priest.However,Noctes hadno cast system.There were religious persons for performing rite and ritual among from common people in the villages. When a traditional festival, like Chahlo or Ronglowas performed in the village, the function didformally commence at Chaam, a place of ritual, some distance away from a village. On the day of such annual festival, the male members from the village would assemble at Chaam, andperformRangsomritual propitiating God, Rang-kathak for wellbeing of the village, and better harvesting. It is followed by a community feast, dance and then return to village.At the beginning, the village chief wouldperformritual at a specially erected altar,it was his privilege,he was considered the upholder of custom and tradition. All other present then would dorangtaam ritual. Rangtaam is a prayer to God, Rang-kathak for his blessings. Apart from Chaam ceremony mentioned above, some Nocte villages have a permanent place of worship called Rangsomthin, specifically for carrying out Rangsom worship, annually. There is a symbolic stone in the Rangsomthin, inherited from their ancestors, or a rock formation where the community ritual is being performed. In Lazo area, Lazo chief was very often entrusted to perform traditional Yangsom or Rangsom ritual on behalf of all the subordinate villages. The God may be calledJooban, Joban, Jongban or Huaba by various ethnic Noctes, but the believed in the existence of Supreme Being in the sky is the same. In fact, it has certain similarity with the believed amongthe Wanchos and Tangsas also. The sky or space aboveis infinit e,extendingalloverwithcelestial body where Sun, Moon and all other planets do exist. There must be an unseen cosmic power that regulates the entire universe. The sky, its celestial bodyis incomprehensible to human being, and has been a wonder and thing of curiosity for mankind sincethe beginning of creation. In the modern days, scientists are trying to explore it, but has no ending of it. The Noctes believed that sky is the abode of God, and there is a Supreme-Being in the sky that guides the destiny of mankind, and all other living beings. It is on the blessings of God that the human beings are surviving. The Supreme Being, Rang-kathakis a sustainer of mankind, but can also act as destroyer, if occasion demands. It is necessary to have His blessings the innerdirectionsfor a success. The existence of God can be felt everywhere, andspiritual activities,rite and ritualareperformed in the name of God.Manis the servant RanghuRanghaof God,andlivedat Hismercy. Onedoes suffer and falls into disgrace rangdaafor committing sin as a curse from God. Atruthfulperson who hasno ill will for others and has succeeded in lifeis a blessed one, calledrangkap. Oneshould live a truthful tuangtanglife, andshould seek blessings ofGod for attaining rangkap.It is believed that Rang-kathak, or God is everywhere in the sky, onthe earth,in the river, in the fire, in the air,so and so forth. There is God behind every happening, such asthe wind, raining, sunshine etc.Nocte Faith is based on nature worship, but it has moral value that had guided the people ever since they came into being. The religion is a faith and no one has perhaps met God actually, but one who has faith may have experienced and felt apositive effect. It is a source of direction for peace and satisfaction in life. The Indigenous Faith, prevalence among the tribal community may be based on nature worship, or it may be a worship based on mythology,as being practiced by some other community, butit is all Faith. In a religion, there may be expression of human sentiment, andit may have certainmysticism. Thesentiment and mysticism are found in theFaith and Believe of the Noctesalso. It is believed that there isa mystery world called Balungin theRaang, sky above. It is neither a heaven nor a hell as being believed in other religions. It is a mystery world where a person died oldmay turns into young. All the deceased one lived in Balung. On the death of a person the soul,juugoes out from the body and lives insky in some forms. Thus, all our ancestors died long before,are up in the sky. The soul comesback to earth for taking rebirth in a family. Untimely and sudden death is taken as misfortune. A person whose life has been cut short, and urgesfor living in this world has remained unfulfilled, such a soul remains on earth as evil spiritjuchhijukha. The souls of infants, died soon after birth also remain on earth. There is a sentimental tale that the spirit of the tiny tots,died soon afterbirth have got no specific place to live in. They loiter round hither and thither. The human being isattributed for theirunfortunate plight. Theywould sometimes get together, dance in a circle singing hakong-hahla tee tee, minyannuchsareeree, meaning let themountain and valley rock, and the mankind doom to death.As a result,earth quake andother calamities do take place, causing damages to life and property. The morale:Newborn babies shouldnt be neglected by parents,or by community in a society. Noctes resorted to animal sacrifices also to appease the evil spirits, the unfulfilled elements of the deceased persons. Very often, therefore, animals like fowl, pig or goat weresacrificed by the Noctes. However, such animal sacrifices are going to disappear in due course of time. Nowadays, meat is being used for food purpose during festivals, and it is not necessarily a sacrifice for ritual purpose.Rangsomrite and

ritualare performed individually as well as collectively. It is performed byofferingfood itemeg. rice, rice-beer, flower etc. in tokopatta leaves.A localwinejumin,specially brewed for performing a ritualis also used for such offerings, calledrangtaam. The Jumin,prepared from food itemis taken as a thingof purity,and it must be offered to God before taking it.The jumin or rice-beer is prepared occasionally by household and taken as food item in Nocte society, but too much of it, or alcoholism is considered bad. There is a custom of expressing formal respect towards maternal uncle and elder brother, being followed by Noctes, by and large,that reflects Rangsom Faith. Itisablessingfrom maternal uncleknown as chinlit, a ritual oftying a piece of ginger,with words of blessings in the neck of niece and nephew, stringed in a thread,after a child is born, or on auspicious occasion like festivals. The niece and nephew would offer a bottle of jumin for rangtaam. The last rite of the deceased one is also performed by maternal uncle, along with village priest Romwa.The elder brother family humka-khaphois also offered a bottle ofjumin for rangtaamby younger brother on the occasion of annual festival, or on certain specific occasions, as a token of respect. Thesecustomary systemsdo strengthenthe family bond. Apart from annual festival being celebrated in villages, some Noctes have the system of performing a community Rangsom,annually. Theritual system differs from village to village to certain extent. Nevertheless, the belief in Rang-kathak is common to all Noctes. The villagers of Namsang and few others have a specific system of an annual ancestral worship called Humkamhon, which is being in practiced in every individual family. It is an en-mixture of Rangsom with Sattra system. This ritual was most probably started by legendary Noctechief, LothaKhunbou,better known asNaruttom, and it is still being followed by them. LothaKhunbou was aNocte chief of then NamsangBorduria, who took initiation under VaishnaviteBaregharSattra, Assam in 18th century, along with his other followers. Earlier, Rangsom-Humswere constructed at Khonsa and Deomaliin 1976 and 1989 respectively at the sites of Chhachaams, where Rangsom ritual used to be performed during common Loku Festivals. RangsomHums are for carrying out social activities in order topromote and revitalize traditional faith and culture of the Noctes, in tune with present time. Alarge number of Noctes have now adopted other religionsin preference to individual choices.But, the sentiment for traditional believeshall always remain. The following is a common prayer said while performing Rangsom ritual: Rang O kathak-Rang, Apamkatremin, akhamkatremin, Khopoupasaadangthuk-min. Lakhemitduak,latatnaaba, Chaankoumin, hang koumin, Butheemongthamkomin. Lampou-saankhesokmin, Asenthaamdangthuk-min. Rang O kathak-Rang. A brief translation. OhAlmighty God, Do protect the ignorant, Give (us)knowledge, strength To live a happyand long life.

The Wicked Prince...


come to so and so place and call out Suva, I will ask my friends to bring fine red rice for you. But, the ungrateful prince said to himself- Let him come to me, I will get him killed. So, he said to the BodhisatvaVenble sir! Come to me at the time of my enthronement, I will welcome you in all sincerity. Thus, the four of them left for their respective homes. After some time, the Wicked Prince was enthroned. Let me try them -decided the Bodhisatva and went out. He stayed in the royal garden, and entered the town abegging the next morning. At that time, the Wicked Prince, who was now a king, was touring the town on his decorated elephant. He had many followers. He saw the Bodhisatva at a distance, and thoughtThis crook is coming to exploit me. He will want free meals and revelries. Before he could come to the court and talk about his favours done to me, I will get him killed. He said to his followersIt appears that the wicked anchorite is here to demand something from me. Stop him there. Tie both his hands behind his back and parade him through the town, beating him all the way. Then, behead him and hang him on the gallows. When the Bodhisatva was thus being taken to the gallows, he repeated the following verse in a calm voiceSaccam kirevamahansu nara ekacciya idha, Kattha viplavitam seyyo natvavekacciyo naro. (The learned ones have rightly said that it is better to evacuate a log than to evacuate certain men from water.) When he was beaten, he repeated the same verse. Therefore, a wise man (pandita)asked himO initiated one! Have you done any favour to our king ? The Bodhisatva narrated the whole incident to him. Then, the townsfolk thoughtThis treacherous king would not acknowledge the favours done to him. How can he ensure our progress ? The news did round in the town. The townsfolk came out of their homes, and they attacked the king with stones, clubs, and arrows. They hurled him down the elephant. They gave him good beating and dragged him into a ditch. Then they crowned the Bodhisatva their king. Thus, ruling righteously over his newfound kingdom, Bodhisatva, one day, decided to try the three animals. He went out with his followers. First, he reached the spot indicated by the serpent and called outDirgha ! The serpent came out to salute him, and gave away the four hundred million rupees worth of wealth to him. Then, he reached the mouses place, and called out- Undoor ! The mouse came out, saluted him, and gave away the three hundred million rupees worth of wealth to him. Finally, he went over to the parrots place, and called out- Suva ! The parrot came down flying and fell upon his feet. Shall I send for the red rice ? the parrot asked. I will tell you when I need it, said he. Then, the king (Bodhisatva) returned to his palace. He built a hole of gold for the snake, a crystal cave for the mouse, and a cage of gold for the parrot. Thus, the four of them lived happily together.

the stream and pulled the log to a safe place. First, he brought the prince to his cottage, and then the serpent, the mouse, and the parrot were also rescued. He made a fire and warmed the four. He gave the animals their proper diets, and then offered fruits and herbal roots to the prince. The prince was offended that the Bodhisatva should first feed the animals and neglect his princely status. After a few days, when the four of them had recuperated, they decided to go back to their respective homes. The serpent saluted the Bodhisatva and saidVenble Sir! You have done a great favour to me. I have four hundred million rupees worth of gold buried at such and such spot. Come there, callout Dirgha, and I will give all the gold to you. The mouse also said humblyVenble Sir! I have three hundred million rupees worth of gold buried at a particular place. You just callout Undoor, and all is yours. The parrot bowed his head and saidI do not have wealth. But, If you

(Divine protection and triumph of Man over Evils) -Oshong Ering The Adis are very fond of hearing myths and tales. During their annual festivals, the Miri or Bari goes on telling stories of various natures in spontaneous, poetical language and the villagers hear them attentively. As a mark of their admiration and appreciation, the villagers sing and dance with the Bari or Miri. During AARAN, ETOR, SOLUNG and MOPIN festivals, such traditional songs and dances run for nights together. These songs are divided in different parts and each major part is again sub-divided in various chapters the singer sings part by part and chapter by chapter systematically. These traditional songs and tales are known in Adi as ABANG, which is the treasurehouse of Adi myths and tales. If you interprete the ABANG, you will see tile vivid picture of the mind of the Adis. TAKTOR ABANG is the concluding part of SOLUNG ABANG. It deals with the birth, life, possession of wealth, relentless struggle for survival/existence, triumph over evils and finally establishment of man supremacy on the Earth. The Adis are curious to know about the mystery of the birth or appearance of the first man on tbe surface of the Earth. This curiosity has led them to aspire high into the world of divinity, and to travel through an imaginary space of Nothingness. Receiving no words and finding nothing in the Nothingness, the Miri starts imagining of an unlimited figure, SEDI, who is also the embodiment of the Universe and the cosmos. From him a series of divine God and Goddesses descended, each god/godless representing certain sta-ges of changes/evolution heading towards the physical creation or birth of man, At last, the Adis conceived of a great divine mother, called PEDONG ANE and a Father, kown as YIDUM BOTE. According to the traditional myths of the tribe, PEDONG ANE, the Divine Mother ,began to conceive as a result of divinely union with YIDUM BOTE, the divine Father and the conception lasted for several years/ ages. She then experienced pain and labour for a long period of five years. PEDONG NANE DE NANE TILE BAYI NADE TODI TANGGO KO OME SANGKI EM O SANGKI EM KILEN BOMKAI. Ultimately the great Divine Mother gave birth to thousands and millions of children. From Her ten organs Came out thousands of beings, animals, creatures, beasts, birds, fishes and insects. Her last issues were two sons, TARO or ROBO and TANI or NIBO the later being the youngest. PEDONG NANE AJI DIRI EM DILEN KANE; OLO PIIYO EM GOKLEN KANE; OME LINGO KO OLINGOKO OLFN TO PEDONG NANE KE NANE OYIE OYANG DEM DONI AJI KOPE AMIN BIDUNG EM PULEM PAKTO The last and youngest born to PEDONG ANE an YIDUM BOTE was named as TANI or HUMAN. Thus the first human being appeared in the material world of ours After giving birth to TANI, The Divine Mother and Father retired into the world of divinity leaving the baby to the material world. Being the youngest and a baby of pigmys size, TANI or NIBO started crying in a helpless condition. For what NIBO cried? For parents or protection? For food and water? Was this cry a divine voice? There was no one to come to his rescue. PEDONG NANE DON II .JI ME; NANE DIKE EM DILEN TONAME DONII AJI DE AJI KABINGE RIRI LEN-KAI. DONII AJI ME SEKOI AJI AYANG EM KAP A BIYEN? AJI NILUNG EM TUMAN BIYEN? Then, from the unlimitedness there appeared a Patron, Called DOYINGBOTE and a Matron, known as KONGKI NANE.DOYING BOTE appeared as the protector and teacher of TANI, and KONGKI NANE as the care-taker and nurse of the helpless baby. As TANI advanced in age DOYING BOTE taught him the use of weapons like arrows, bows swords etc. and also infused knowledge, intelligence and wisdom in TANI so that be could stand the odds of material life. Thus TANI grew up under the patronage/matronage and guidance of DOYING BOTE and KONGKI NANE. The first man on the Earth thus survived and proved his existence. But the struggle did not end there. The way of human life is not a path of roses. More problems and challenges confronted him. The teachings, knowledge and intelligence infused in him by DOYING BOTE made him an impatient genius. He could not restrain himself from exercising intelligence and putting his knowledge in practice. The led him to face a series of problems and odds. With his knowledge in the use of weapons T ANI went on shooting and killing everything and almost became a blood thirsty. He became haggard and exhausted and his life was heading towards a catastrophe. But the patron. DOYING BOTE, rescued him again. TANI was put in a log cabin and taught to exercise restrain and tolerance. This made TANI more sober and wiser. Then another challenge more serious nature faced T ANI. It was his prolonged conflict and struggle against TARO or ROBO, the elder brother of TANI By nature TARO was arrogant, wild, intolerant, mischievous, and less intelligent. He could not tolerate TANIs well-being and achievements. In all practical affairs TANI used to out-wit TARO and could prove his efficiency. TARO became intolerant at it and almost decided to eliminate TANI from the scene. TANI could forsee all the evils. The fertile land, water, properties and valuable ornaments came to the possession of TAN!. TAROs wildness and anger knew no bound. Once TARO put TANI in a hollow tree and threw him into the TARO-SIYANG or Eternal River. By throwing TANI into water, TARO married DOYING SINGKI RIMING, wife of TANI, by force. But TANI managed to come out of the water and chased out TARO who fled into the jungle for life and never returned home. The jungle is the sheltering abode of TARO and he is still believed to be hiding and living a sort of mysterious life in the jungle. TANI watched and guarded his home anticipating the return of mischievous TARO and still now man guards against external aggression, diseases and other evils. TANI could withstand all the evil designs of TARO and establish his supremacy over the earth by eliminating TARO, and so even to-day human being is recognized as the superior-most among the living on earth. It is rather difficult to give a detailed account of TAK TOR ABANG in a short note like this with this I have simply attempted to give a short idea about the ABANG. Mysteries of human life and birth have given rise to curiosity in the mind of the people of the tri be and this has led them to introduce vivid stories leading to the birth/creation of man. To the Adis human life on earth is a reality and, as such, it must be taken with seriousness. Mans material life is full of sickness, diseases, greed, temptation, excitement( and agony; but all those should not terrify him; he should face them as fight them out and win over them as TANI did in eliminating mischievous TARO. In TAKTOR, the Miri advises the people to be courageous and to master over all the dayto-day problems of life. Anger, arrogance, intolerance and violence are not conducive to a prosperous and peaceful life. Intelligent approach, steady mind amity and understanding lead man to bring about permanent solution of problems. Once a difficult problem is tackled and peace established, on must guard and protect it later. This I teaching has encouraged the vi1lagers 1 to watch and guard their village, I society, property, tradition and customs zealously. So, the A is take pride b in their way of life, society and culture. Thus, TAKTOR ABANG is nothing but the life history of man. To tell this, the MIRI introduces various stories of interesting nature and so carries the audience with him for nights together. The ABANG is the traditional teaching of the Adis and as such, it plays a great influence on The practical life of the tribe. Socio- political-cultural aspirations of the Adis are sufficiently presented through the ABANGS and so great Importance is attached to it. To know the people of the tribe better, one is required to heir ABANG and interprete them correctly. The Adis will continue to receive divine protection and they will all the time do away with evils while marching along the road of progress, prosperity and peace.
