It has been a while since AGM in Pangu. This was the first AGM held in any Rung village and it became evident in the way not only the even was organized but also in the attitude of participants.
Lasting memory for me have been two. One was the walk around the villages like Rhimjim, Rongto and Pangu School. This is probably first time when we had time to look around the village and school. There were some people from Pangu and nearby villages who have not visited Pangu school in a long time. Views from Pangu School and Rhimjim were so breathtaking that I just wanted to live there :).
Second was the improptu mehfil session at one of the hotels (as we call them in our area). It was after election of the new central committee of RKS. People had gone in different directions from the venue after the election but a group gathered in this hotel. When we landed there mehfil was in full swing. Dr. Gagan Sonal and Suresh 'Guddu" Napalchyal were at their mehfil best. It was so good that people started digging into their wallets and money came pouring onto a plate ( which also appeared magically from somewhere). Mood was electric to say the least which prompted our serious looking Arvind hya into surprising us with a few urdu couplets. Then came chhupa roostam of the night Kishore Kutiyal 'Keshwa'. He presented Rung couplets so touching that even elderly people started digging into their wallets :) I wish i had recorded this sessions so that you all would have had first hand experience ( and would not have had to suffer this inadequate narration from me)
Next AGM is in Darma and I am looking forward to it with great expectations as this would fulfil my dreams of seeing Darma and this next AGM would take us further into Rung vallies.
