Dates from my mother till my generation, time has been witnessed lots of changes in the surrounding.Particularly the custom, culture and tradition of people around the ZIRO plateau has been changed to a great extent. The tremendous modernizations in culture, custom and tradition have been taken place. As a result today the most serious problem we are facing is that young generation of the modern days are facing difficulty in understanding our own tradition, which creates a big communication gap between the people of old generation and the people of new generation. MODERNISATION is leading us to new track and new life style, bringing drastic different atmosphere of life.

Now time has come for new generation Apatani people ( or Tanii) of Ziro plateau to take serious decision about preserving our identity,custom,culture and tradition. I don't mean that we lost our track,but it has been seen that modernisation is effecting our life.We have to help ourselves.Thus, the best thing to save our Tanii culture is to teach and learn Apatani (Tanii) everyday. Let us share our Apatani knowledge and let us save Tanii.
