NORTH EAST: the next site for development.....

The north-eastern part of India is a remote place joined by a narrow strip of land named as "Silguri Corridor". It remains one of the most under developing region of India as it has been successfully neglected over four decades after Republic of India was formed until recently. Now north east has been treated as a special region having DONER (Department Of North Eastern Region) as the central ministry for the development of the region.
THE north eastern part of India is a segregated land, it is connected to mainland India by a narrow strip of North Bengal, commonly known as Siliguri Corridor.
The area is encircled by mountain range and hills. It is a paradise for biodiversity, ethnicity and languages. Most of the people here are Multilingual,as it is a conglomeration of languages of different language families,from Indo-Aryan to Astro-Asiatic language family are mixed in the confluence of northeastern languages.

When India became independent from the United Kingdom in 1947, only three states covered the area. Manipur and Tripura were princely states, while a much larger Assam Province was under direct British rule. Its capital was Dispur . Four new states were carved out of the original territory of Assam in the decades following independence, in line with the policy of the Indian government of reorganizing the states along ethnic and linguistic lines. Accordingly, Nagaland became a separate state in 1963, followed by Meghalaya in 1972. Mizoram became a Union Territory in 1972, and achieved statehood - along with Arunachal Pradesh - in 1987.

During '90 decade SIKKIM was made a north eastern state making its tally to 8 member states.
We shall discuss each of them:


:: :: :: BLOOD STREAM :: :: :: Jayanti is a nondescript place on the eastern fringes of Dooars and very close to the Bhutan border and the famous Manas wildlife sanctuary of Assam. However, I found the place to be exotic and must visit for every nature lover. This is a photograph of the Jayanti river which flows by the village. There are iron ore rich deposits on the shores of the river, and the iron content mixes with water as it flows. When the water recedes as mud during the dry days, the iron-mixed mud catches rust. When the river starts flowing again after some rains, the rusted mud gets mixed with the water, giving this 'stream of blood' effect. Dont be foxed by the thin water flow - during the rainy season, the same river soars to 12 feet deep water and drowns everything around making the place not reachable for 3 months (June to Sept). This photo has been taken slightly upstream, on the way to the Stalagmite and Stalagtite deposits at Mahakaal.
