Why Ramakrishna Mission came
to Tirap of all the places of Arunachal Pradesh is not clear.
There may be two reasons: First, Shri K. A. A. Raja, the then
Adviser to the Governor of Assam was a lover of Tirap and
very much interested in the development of this district.
Secondly, even in those days, as early as 1970s, when modern
education and thought were unknown in this remote part, Shri
Dangwang Lowangdong, Chief of Namsang, correctly understood
the importance of modern education which would make his people
come at par with others without changing their faith and customs.
For this purpose he donated 250 acres of land from the Namsang forest
area to the Ramakrishna Mission.
