Apatani Mythology

Qtn: Who was the first person to perform MURUNG??

Ans: According to #Apatani_Mythology, one of our ancestor by name MIPU was the first one to perform MURUNG ritual on this earth.


After completion of MURUNG rituals, the horns of mithuns are dried and preserved. These preserved horns (Subu arii) are the trophies for MURUNG performer(specially for the menfolk). In Apatani tradition MITHUNS are counted as one's assets. More the numbers of horns, more wealthy is the family.

Q. What is the uniqueness of this particular photo (no 1)- showing supung yataƱ khenii ritual???
Ans: In this particular photo we can see 6 numbers of child brides, that's the reflections from our recent past. In Apatani culture #child_marriageexisted till 70s-80s, later on it was abolished forever.
Present day's #Apatani_girl childs are more luckier in comparison with those of the pasts. With introduction of school education in Ziro, our girls have achieved feats in various fields. Today many of them are studying in various premiere institutions like IITs and IIMs.
Many of our girls have successfully cracked country's toughest and the most prestigious #UPSC exams; many of them have cracked #APPSCexams and there are numerous of administrators within our home state. Today we have administrators, doctors, engineers, lawyers, architects, scientists, teachers, police personnel, sportsman, professionals, bankers, entrepreneurs, fashion designers, yoga teachers, writers, singers, dancers, actors,painters etc.
Note: The credits for such rapid changes in our community goes to our hardworking parents. In spite of they themselves being illiterate (most of them), they could understand the#value_and_importance_of_education_for_girl_childs.
