they believe that all natural objects — such as the trees the mountains and the streams are governed by different spirits or uyu Their relationships with the spirits is crucial to the way they utilise the natural wealth around them Activities such as hunting and shifting cultivation (still the dominant livelihood activities in villages) that involve extraction of natural resources are always accompanied by sacrifices and rituals offered to the guardian spirits As more and more people travel to these parts I can’t help but think of how interesting and enjoyable journeys can get here My time in Arunachal Pradesh has taught me a lot about journeys There is nothing like public transport to teach you about a place and its people Funnily though public transport in Arunachal Pradesh is almost entirely a private enterprise with Sumos wingers and the occasional mini buses on some routes Then there are the dodgy ferries that carry anything from cars to cows across rivers Government transport is restricted to the rickety APSTS buses and mini buses (a normal sized bus just wouldn’t be able to make it through those hairpin bends on the mountains) and the Pavan Hans helicopters on some routes Adi suspension bridges made of cane wood and metal wire were good for crossing on foot and even on a bike (Source: Anirban Datta-Roy) The surest way of getting around in the hills across northeast India are Line Sumos So it is in Arunachal too Manned by daredevil drivers these vehicles are seen coated with dust and mud with the telltale splatter marks of vomit on its sides It is no secret that the roads in Arunachal are bad (where they exist that is) The locals tell you that Anybody who has been to Arunachal for even half a day will tell you that I once heard of a driver of a pickup who had come from the plains of Assam to these roads for the first time with his cargo of construction equipment After five days of driving on these roads and coping with landslides he was so utterly defeated that he just left the vehicle by the side of the road and hitched a ride back home to Assam As they say in Arunachal “Woh toh surrender ho gaya” Travelling with strangers on these bad roads creates a feeling of camaraderie that is probably matched only by soldiers who have been in a war together There is the added advantage in Arunachal of a lingua franca Hindi This is a luxury that a traveller may not find in most other parts of northeast India where locals are not too familiar with Hindi Having a common language allows you to not just engage the locals in conversation but to also eavesdrop on other interesting conversations within the vehicle It’s the only place you get to hear what people think about dams roads politics China and even the latest Bollywood movies I’ve even been provided with accounts of rare animal and bird sightings that turned out to be very accurate All this while the car speakers blast out an eclectic mix of Honey Singh ’80s Bollywood (the worst) Nepali Galo and Adi folk songs It is an almost unwritten rule that the only time the music stops is when you halt for food or when the driver stops in the middle of nowhere and proclaims “Sab log minus kar lo” As you might have guessed there is nothing remotely mathematical about “minus” As for the night Sumo I am slightly reluctant to recommend it When our vehicle broke down in the middle of nowhere at some unearthly hour the driver hitched a ride on a passing bike and left the passengers saying that he was going to get some “parts” Of course he never returned;
