Not many people know about Kaho and that’s the whole point behind the publicity, he said. For the record, 11 districts of Arunachal share their border with China and each have a village on the international border.
âThe team will be filming the program. He will also make a documentary on the village and the inhabitants of the Meyor tribe. We’ll show it to people who don’t know much about Kaho, âTeshi said.

The place is also gaining importance because several inhabitants had taken part in the freedom movement. Their services were recognized at the event, Teshi added.
