I requested one of them Ranjeet sigh unemployed youth to guide me to the village; they honored me as guest and led to the
village. There I met Mr. Dev Singh Panchpal who explained as follows
1. Major percentage of population is migrating from Munsyari villages for employment opportunities elsewhere.
small agricultural lands what they have is not enough to make as source of income. Yield they get is hardly enough to feed
3. Their traditional carpet / woolen shawl weaving and is fading due to lack of demand for these products. They
were main suppliers to Tibet few years back but now the trade is reduced much.
4. One shawl worth of Rs. 2000/- roughly
US$ 42/- in pashmina wool he had made 2 years back which is still unsold.
5. Weaving and knitting is only left to illiterate
women at home who in spare time do this job.
6. Primary school is one kilometer and junior school 2kms away from that
7. Sheep breeding for wool is almost towards end as feeding them has become difficult. Young generation does
not want to do this hard job without enough benefit. One more problem is seen is that to feed sheep they need to cover many
kilometers to jungle.
8. Munsyari tourist spot has not been much beneficial to local population of its villages.
