    Arunachal Pradesh is planning to showcase a village on the China border to the world through a documentary.

    The state’s Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government is organising a programme at Kaho in Anjaw district on Sunday to showcase the village as a part of the year-long and nationwide celebrations of the 75th year of Indian independence “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav”.

    As per reports, the State Department of Information, Public Relations and Printing has sent a 12-member team to Kaho from state capital Itanagar on Friday morning for filming a documentary on the village and its people. It is the first village from the China border in Anjaw district which is 580 km east of Itanagar.

    An official of the department informed, "Kaho is the first village from the China border. We plan to make a documentary on Kaho and its people who belong to the Meyor community. Very few people know about this village and its significance.”

    Arunachal Pradesh has eleven districts that share border with China and each has a village on the international border. 

    Kaho is one of the seven villages of Kibithoo block where the river Lohit divides the region. It has a population of only 65 residents and a literacy rate of 64.15%, according to the 2011 Census. 

    A similar publicity event was organised a month ago, at Dipa village in Lower Siang district. The national flag was first hoisted at the village on August 15, 1947, as per reports.
