The aim of this book is to present a factual and reasoned statement on all the principal elements, physical and human, that influenced the environment, ways of life and development within the area that has come to be known as the North East India. A proportion of the material used in the present volume is derived from the technical reports and surveys that has been made by the North Eastern Council Shillong, publications and reports of the Census of India, and other Central and State Government agencies and institutions. Other aspects in the book are based on investigations, observations and discussions.
In its social texture, the North East retains that much tradition and is slow to change (in almost all aspects of human relations and activities). Its economy, long subject to powerful extra-regional impulses and modern industrialism, with predominant primitive impulses in the majority hill and mountain sections, has now slowly embarked, now in many areas, upon State sponsored development.
Moreover, independence and administrative re-organisation have totally transformed the equation in the political structure and socio-political relations, whereby changes were strikingly displayed in the map. With the withdrawal of Britain and partition of the sub-continent, new forms and phases of perennial conflicts between old and new as well as localism and integration emerged. These were followed by dramatic political re-orientation along with contradictions between traditionalism and modernism.
North East India is thus reshaping against its geopolitical background.
