अस्कोट आराकोट अभियान की ऐसी प्रस्तुतियाँ पहाड़ तथा अन्य स्थानों में होते रहेंगे।जो लोग उस दिन इस कार्यक्रम मैं उपस्थित नहीं हो पाए वो यहां पर उस क्रार्यक्रम को पुनः देख सकते हैं. यह वीडियो आपको IIC के सौजन्य से दिखाया जा रहा है.
अभियान का यह सार संक्षेप अब दस्तावेज की तरह उपयोग में लाया सकता है।

Many people are asking about the Askot-Arakot-Abhiyan. In order to help them this FAQ is prepared.
Q. How can I register for this Abhiyan/Yatra/Trekking
This is not a typical trekking. If you read about past four Abhiyan then you would know that this yatra is for quest of knowledge. The Abhiyan Motto is “Know your villages, know your people”. So participation in this yatra is voluntary and no registration required for the same.
Q. How much I need to pay /Registration Fees for this yatra and to whom I need to pay.
This Abhiyan is conducted by PAHAR but there is no registration fees for the same. So you do not need to pay any thing to anyone for being the part of Askot Arakot Abhiyan.
Q. I can’t spare 45 days for the Abhiyan …can I manage for less days?
The schedule is published for the entire yatra. Some of the persons would be there for whole yatra BUT you can join the yatra at any place and leave at any place depending upon your availability.
Q. How much money needed for the entire Yatra.
As a policy one can not spend any money during the main yatra, One has to be dependent on villagers. They would provide Food,Shelter and other necessary things during the yatra. One need to ask/cajole/persuade them for the same. This is also the way of creating a link with villagers and understand how they live..what they eat. Just keep only that much amount in which you can return back from nearest motor road.
Q. What are the thing I can carry and can I use porter(s)?
You have to carry bare essential things with you and every thing must be carried by you. You can not use any porter for the same.Some of the things which are essential …good pair of shoes, rucksack, sleeping bag/blanket, water bottle, glass, some cloths (warm cloths also), rain coat/umbrella, diary/copy,pen. You can also keep hand mike, recorder, camera, some medicines also.
Q. Can I keep tents?
Ideally no as we will be residing at some school or panchayat ghar of the Village. If that too is not available then we can spend night under open sky. If on a given day, the people involved in yatra are more than a certain standard point. Then it can be divided into two parts who will be spending nights in different villages.
Q. Am I required to do some work also.
Please not that this Anhiyan is not a picnic. You should be ready to take responsibilities as and when given during the yatra. You may have to fill survey forms, interact with people or give advise on your specialised fields while interacting with people. So suppose you are a doctor, then you can give medical advice to villagers. If you are a teacher then you can give career counseling to student etc etc.
Q. I can not physically be a part of Abhiyan but I want to help. How can I?
PAHAR is an organization which runs form the voluntary help from its friends all over the world. So you can donate money,medicines, camera cards, mobile cards, battery banks, hand mike etc. For any other donation/query you can send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com

The friend of people, philosopher of communities and guide of social movements Girish Tiwari ‘Girda’ walked to his heavenly mountain abode at 11.31 AM on 22 August 2010.
When we were thinking that he is critical, he survived and when we thought he is recovering he just flew away.
On 23 August his funeral was unusual as hundreds of people participated in the procession. First time the sisters and daughters participated in the funeral. First time the participants in the funeral procession were singing the songs of the departed person. They were singing and weeping and weeping but singing.
We are thinking and discussing how to remember him now. This evening (25 August 2010) there will be public condolence in Nainital. Some new ideas may come out. Yes Girda has created a difficult vacuum. We have to plan out a way for filling it with all creativity.
This is end of an epoch. Girda is gone. No, he is with us in his poems, plays, music, acting, Holi processions, lectures and discussions etc. He is very much with us. This presence will compel us all to work collectively and creatively for the people.
Suggest how to make his memory meaningful generally for the communities of mountains and particularly for the people of Uttarakhand?
PAHAR (Girda was one of the founders of PAHAR and member of the editorial board) is already working on his poems and plays. These three volumes will be published with in a year. A special volume of PAHAR will be published as a compilation of the ‘Girda Memoirs’ of different people. This will be an endeavour to look at Girda from countless angles.
Apart from his larger family he survived by his wife Smt. Hemlata Tiwari (Address: Sunny View, Cantt, Tallital, Nainital-263002, India, two sons and a daughter in law. The family needs all kind of support from friends and well-wishers.
