Description: This is a narration of the very commonly known place among the Nagas called Murong, which in Ao is called Arju.
Arju, for the Aos, was basically a school-like home for the boys where they were taught life lessons, how to face the enemies, how to do carvings such as stone and wood carvings, etiquette as a man etc. One very important aspect that was taught to the boys was the “socio-cultural” subject. When a boy comes to a certain age (ie; 16-17), they were allowed to stay / visit this place and were graduated again after attaining a certain age group.
