The Northeast Saga

P.K. Bandyopadhyay (Author)

The Seven Sisters of the North East are a fascinating bouquet of rich cultural entities with unique landscapes and a diverse mix of people. This book takes the reader through the history, language, dance, music, customs, traditions and the pulsating life in the seven states viz. Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura. The northeastern region with an area of 254956 square kilometers, a least the major part of it, was formed about thirty million years ago. The Shillong plateau evolved with the great geostatic movement connected with the uplift of the Himalayas. The Brahmaputra valley, mostly built by the silt brought down by the rivers, the geologists say, is more recent in origin.
