Largest biosphere reserve coming up in Dibang

Sept 2: The Adi tribals living since eons at the Simong village of Arunachal Pradesh might never get to see the works of renowned American architectural designer Maya Lin, iconic footwear designer Manolo Blahnik of Spain or acclaimed Indian photographer Dayanita Singh. But the three are joining hands with 15 other globally-known artists to raise funds through an art auction in New York next month to aid these tribals in Upper Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh in developing a proposed community biosphere reserve with the help of an international NGO called Future Generations.
