ITANAGAR, Feb 5: Arunachal Pradesh Governor Brig. (Dr.) B. D. Mishra (Retd.) and Chief Minister Pema Khandu have extended greetings to the people of the State on the auspicious occasion of Boori Boot Yullo.
In his message to the people, the Governor said, “On the auspicious occasion of Boori Boot Yullo, I extend my heartiest greetings to the people of Arunachal Pradesh, particularly my Nyishi brethren. I hope that the festivity associated with this festival will usher in peace, prosperity and happiness”.
He said that festivals are an important part of one’s life and as an agrarian community, most of the festivals in Arunachal Pradesh are associated with agriculture, adding that the observance of the festivals not only brings the community members together but also helps in carrying forward the age-old cultural heritage of the people. “Let us be proud of our rich customs and traditions and also be proud of our cultural ethos”, the Governor stated, and urged upon the younger generations to take active part in the celebration of the festivals to keep linked to their roots.
“On the festive day, I join my Arunachali brethren in their prayers to invoke the spirit of Boori Boot Yullo to bless each one of us with happy future and Chief Minister Pema Khandu has extended his best wishes and greetings to the people on the joyous occasion of Boori Boot festival celebrated by the Nyishis, especially of Kamle district of Arunachal Pradesh.
The Boori Boot Yullo is celebrated in the first month of ‘Rajo Pol' (February) and is believed that  during this month the Gods and Goddesses are at their warmest disposition towards mankind.
“Boori Boot Yullo is not only to appease the Almighty for peace, prosperity and happiness for all but it also symbolizes our unity and bonhomie,” Khandu said in a message this evening.
He lauded the Nyishis for their sincere effort in preserving their indigenous culture while taking pride on it.
“As indigenous communities, we must first be proud of our culture and heritage. When we are proud of our culture, it’s preservation and propagation will follow,” he said.
As always, the Chief Minister called upon the youths, who are pursuing various courses outside the state, to remain connected with their culture and put efforts to learn and speak in their own native tongues.
“Fly as high as you want. But remain grounded to your roots. Our indigenous culture is the only identity we have in this entire universe,” he said.
Khandu, meanwhile, offered his prayers to Almighty Donyi Polo to bless Arunachal Pradesh with peace, progress, good health and a bumper harvest.
