Destination Information

ABOUT THE TERRITORY:
Northeast India refers to the easternmost region of India consisting of the contiguous Seven Sister States, Sikkim, and parts of North Bengal (districts of Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri, and Koch Bihar). Northeast India is ethnically distinct from the rest of India and has strong ethnic and cultural ties with East Asia and Southeast Asia, with strong ethnic cultures. Among the North Eastern states, Sikkim became an Indian protectorate in 1947 and a full state in 1975. The Siliguri Corridor in West Bengal, with an average width of 21 km to 40 km, connects the northeastern region with the rest of India. More than 2000 km of boundary is shared with other countries: including Nepal, China, Bhutan, Burma and Bangladesh. The region is known for its unique culture, handicrafts, martial arts, and scenic beauty. Problems include insurgency, unemployment, and lack of infrastructure. Since the beginning of the economic liberalization in the 1990s, studies have shown that this region is lagging behind the others in terms of development. Northeast India lie deep in the lap of easternmost Himalayan hills in northeastern part of India. Connected to rest of India by merely 20 km of wide land (at Siliguri, West Bengal), the North-East India shares over 2,000 km of border with Bhutan, China, Myanmar and Bangladesh.

CULTURE:
Northeast India is a lesser-known area for archaeological research; however it will be discussed here in order to show the importance and potential for Neolithic research. Being a contact zone of South Asia, Southeast Asia, and East Asian countries, the region has a great diversity of cultural material dating from prehistoric times. Comparatively well-documented Neolithic cultural material is still described in a classificatory manner, which makes it further impossible to explain the basic terminological issue of Neolithic culture, which was the new way of life in the Prehistoric scenario. A fresh approach with archaeological, linguistic and ethnographic evidence is adapted and applied in order to understand the relevance of Northeast India, commonly known as the "Seven Sisters", to early origins of pottery and agriculture in South Asia, Southeast Asia, and East Asia. The archaeological comparison is based on three issues: viz. cord-impressed pottery, shouldered Celt, and rice agriculture, which aim to synthesize evidence from different neighboring areas to understand what they have in common and to provide clues for further research.

CLIMATE:
The North Eastern region has distinct climate variations. The rapid changes in topography result in climate changes within short distance. Generally the daily temperature in the plains of Brahmaputra and the Barak Valley as well as in Tripura and in the western portion of Mizo Hills is about 150 C in January, whereas in other parts of the region, the temperature is between 100C to 150C. From April it rises and in July except the south-eastern portion of Mizo hills and Shillong, the mean temperature ranges from 250C to 27.50C. During October, daily mean temperature in the hilly areas ranges between 200C and 250C, whereas in Brahmaputra and Barak Valley, Tripura and the western portion of the Mizo hills it is above 250C. Further the lowest temperature is experienced below freezing point in the upper Himalayas in Arunachal Pradesh.

LANGUAGE:
Northeast Indian languages owe their significant origination to societies from Burma, grouped under three families. Northeast India is that bundle that is represented by the seven sister states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura. The distinct dissimilarity that is manifested through these border-line states is that each state has to unfold a legend of its own. Indeed, north-eastern India enshrouds within itself the vast unexplored and unknown tracts, some of which are perhaps still to witness the light of day. `India shining` can no more be better described than through these cluster of states, misty as they are always in environs. Though much smaller in total square feet area as opposed to their other Indian counterparts, north-eastern states predominate and override in its indigenous tribal population and culture, which comes forth in every style of living - beginning from cooking, approach to eating, dressing, singing, dancing, music, architecture, literature and of course, its ancientness in language. The terms: `wealth`, `richness`, or `luxury` or even `lush` flawlessly manifest themselves in these north eastern states, and which would not be an understatement if it is more stated that they have been doused with raw Himalayan splendour. Lapping up the outer Himalayan section, India`s northeast begins and ends in this denominated boundary line, wherein revolves the not-much publicised day-to-day transactions of tribal society, that has since modernisation taken a significant leap from quaintness to bustle. This has, as a result, made a deep and lasting impact upon northeast Indian languages and their fashion of accents.
