Nagaland is a world apart.
Nature resplendent in all her full-bodied glory.
Exquisitely picturesque, vibrantly colourful, all
lush fertile, the land represents unimaginable beauty,
created by nature, to take your breath away...
The Nagas, inhabitants of Nagaland, are said
to belong to the indo-mongoloid stock, a race
whose presence was first noted ten centuries before
Christ, at the time of the compilation of the
Vedas. Inaugurated on December 1, 1963 as the
16th state of the Bharat Union, Nagaland is bounded
by Assam in the west, Burma on the East, Arunachal
Pradesh & Assam on the North and Manipur in
the South. The state consists of seven districts
with sixteen tribes & sub-tribes inhabiting
it. The Naga tribes are generally full of folklore.
They are fond of seasonal songs, solo, duet and
choric. Here man has to fight nature all the time.
The struggle however, makes people tough. The
people here are strongly built, simple, honest
and hard working.
