North East India is the eastern most region of India. It represents the political administrative & geographical division of the country. It is also named officially as the North Eastern Region, NER and includes eight states viz: Tripura, Sikkim, Nagaland, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Manipur, and Arunachal Pradesh.History
In the early historical period (the most initial millennium), Kamarupa made its debut in most areas of present-day northeastern India, except for Bangladesh, Bhutan, and Sylhet. A Chinese Buddhist monk, Xuanzang, visited Kamarupa in the 7th century. He described people as "short-sighted and dark-looking," whose speech was slightly different from that of Central India, and that was simple but violent. He wrote that the folks in Kamarupa knew about Sichuan, which was located east of the kingdom beyond a treacherous mountain.Seven sister states
Seven Sister States is a collective term for contagious states like Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura, before the state of Sikkim was included in the northeastern region of India. 'Seven Sisters of the Land' was created by Jyoti Prasad Saikia, a journalist in Tripura during a radio talk show to coincide with the inauguration of new states in January 1972. He later assembled a book on the interdependence and generality of the Seven Sister States and named it Land of Seven Sisters. It is mainly due to this publication that the surname has taken hold.Flora
The area has been identified by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research as the epicenter of rice germplasm. In India, NBPGR (National Bureau of Plant Genetic Resources) highlighted the region as being rich in wild relatives of crop plants. It is the center of the origin of citrus fruits. Two primitive varieties of maize, Sikkim Primitive 1 and 2, have been reported from Sikkim (Dhawan, 1964). Although jhum farming is a traditional system of agriculture, often cited as the cause of loss of jungle cover of the region, this primary agrarian financial activity performed by local tribes endorsed the cultivation of 35 types of crops.
The area is fertile in medicinal plants and many other rare and endangered taxa. Its high endemicity in both higher plants, vertebrate and avian diversity has made it eligible as a biodiversity hotspot. Fifty-one forest categories are found in the region, broadly classified into six major types - tropical moist deciduous forest, tropical semi-evergreen forest, tropical humid evergreen forest, subtropical forest, temperate forest, and alpine forest.Fauna
The International Council for Bird Preservation, UK, recognized the plains of Assam and the eastern Himalayas as an endemic bird zone (EBA). The EBA has a region of 220,000 km2 after the Himalayan range in Bhutan, China, Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar, and the Indian states of Sikkim, North West Bengal, Arunachal Pradesh, Southern Assam, Nagaland, Manipur, Meghalaya, and Mizoram. Due to a southerly occurrence of this mountain range compared to other Himalayan ranges, the region has a distinct climate, with warmer temperatures and frost with fewer days and much more rainfall.Language
Northeast India constitutes the same linguistic region in an Indian linguistic part with about 220 languages from several language families (Indo-European, Sino-Tibetan, Krai-dai, Austroasiatic, as well as some Creole languages, which many Features) distinguish them from most other regions of the Indian subcontinent (such as alveolar consonants rather than the more distinct dental/retroflex distinction).Art
Manipuri dance (from Manipur) and Sattriya (from Assam) are listed as classical dances of India. Apart from these, all the tribes in Northeast India have dances associated with their folk faith and fairs. The tribal tradition in the region is rich with hunting, cultivation of land, and practice of indigenous crafts.
