Arunachal 1

  1. 1. Arunachal Pradesh<br />Arunachal Pradesh (pronounced [ərʊˈɳaːtɕəlprəˈd̪eːɕ] is a state of India, located in the far northeast . It borders the states of Assam and Nagaland to the south, and shares international borders with Burma in the east, Bhutan in the west, and the People's Republic of China in the north. The majority of the territory is claimed by the People's Republic of China as part of South Tibet. The northern border of Arunachal Pradesh reflects the McMahon Line, a controversial 1914 treaty between the United Kingdom and a Tibetan government, which was never accepted by the Chinese government, and not enforced by the Indian government until 1950. Itanagar is the capital of the state.<br />Arunachal Pradesh means "land of the dawn lit mountains"[4] in Sanskrit. It is also known as "land of the rising sun" ("pradesh" means "state" or "region") in reference to its position as the easternmost state of India. Most of the people native to and/or living in Arunachal Pradesh are of Tibeto-Burman origin. A large and increasing number of migrants have reached Arunachal Pradesh from many other parts of India, although no reliable population count of the migrant population has been conducted, and percentage estimates of total population accordingly vary widely. Part of the famous Ledo Burma Road, which was a lifeline to China during World War II, passes through the eastern part of the state.<br />

  3. 3. Conflicts between China and India<br />Main article: Sino-Indian War <br />The NEFA (North East Frontier Agency) was created in 1954. The issue was quiet during the next decade or so of cordial Sino-Indian relations, but erupted again during the Sino-Indian War of 1962. The cause of the escalation into war is still disputed by both Chinese and Indian sources. During the war in 1962, the PRC captured most area of Arunachal Pradesh. However, China soon declared victory, voluntarily withdrew back to the McMahon Line and returned Indian prisoners of war in 1963. The war has resulted in the termination of barter trade with Tibet, although in 2007 the state government has shown signs to resume barter trade with Tibet<br />After the war<br />Arunachal Pradesh became a separate state of India in 1986.<br />Of late, Arunachal Pradesh has come to face threats from certain insurgent groups, notably the National Socialist Council of Nagaland(NSCN), who are believed to have base camps in the districts of Changlang and Tirap.There are occasional reports of these groups harassing local people and extracting protection money.<br /> <br />
  4. 4. Geography<br />Arunachal Pradesh is famous for its mountainous landscape.<br />The Himalayas bordering Arunachal Pradesh<br />Much of Arunachal Pradesh is covered by the Himalayas. However, parts of LohitChanglang and Tirap are covered by the Patkai hills. Kangto, NyegiKangsang, the main Gorichen peak and the Eastern Gorichen peak are some of the highest peaks in this region of the Himalayas.<br />At the lowest elevations, essentially at Arunachal Pradesh's border with Assam, are Brahmaputra Valley semi-evergreen forests. Much of the state, including the Himalayan foothills and the Patkai hills, are home to Eastern Himalayan broadleaf forests. Toward the northern border with China, with increasing elevation, come a mixture of Eastern and Northeastern Himalayan subalpine conifer forests followed by Eastern Himalayan alpine shrub and meadows and ultimately rock and ice on the highest peaks.<br />In 2006 Bumla pass in Tawang was opened to traders for the first time in 44 years. Traders from both sides of the pass were permitted to enter each other's territories, in addition to postal workers from each country.<br />The Himalayan ranges that extend up to the eastern Arunachal separate it from Tibet. The ranges extend toward Nagaland, and form a boundary between India and Burma in Changlang and Tirap district, acting as a natural barrier called Patkai Bum Hills. They are low mountains compared to the Greater Himalayas.<br /> <br />Climate<br />The climate of Arunachal Pradesh varies with elevation. Areas that are at a very high elevation in the Upper Himalayas close to the Tibetan border enjoy an alpine or Tundra climate. Below the Upper Himalayas are the Middle Himalayas, where people experience a temperate climate. Areas at the sub-Himalayan and sea-level elevation generally experience humid, sub-tropical climate with hot summers and mild winters.<br />Arunachal Pradesh receives heavy rainfall of 80 to 160 inches (2,000 to 4,100 mm) annually, most of it between May and September. The mountain slopes and hills are covered with alpine, temperate, and subtropical forests of dwarf rhododendron, oak, pine, maple, fir, and juniper; sal (Shorea) and teak are the main economically valuable species.<br />
  5. 5. Sub-divisions<br />Arunachal Pradesh is divided into sixteen districts, each administered by a district collector who sees to the needs of the local people. Especially along the Tibetan border, the Indian army has a considerable presence due to concerns about Chinese intentions in the region. Special permits called Inner Line Permits (ILP) are required to enter Arunachal Pradesh through any of its checkgates on the border with Assam.<br />DorjeeKhandu, former Chief minister of Arunachal Pradesh<br />Districts of Arunachal Pradesh:<br />Anjaw District<br />Changlang District<br />East Kameng<br />East Siang<br />KurungKumey<br />Lohit District<br />Lower Dibang Valley<br />Lower Subansiri<br />Papum Pare<br />Tawang District<br />Tirap District<br />Upper Dibang Valley<br />Upper Subansiri<br />Upper Siang<br />West Kameng<br />West Siang<br />
  6. 6. Transport<br />The state's airports are located at Daparjio, Ziro, Along, Tezu and Pasighat. However, owing to the rough terrain, these airports are mostly small and cannot handle many flights. Before being connected by road, they were originally used for the transportation of food.<br />Arunachal Pradesh has two highways: the 336 km (209 mi) National Highway 52, completed in 1998, which connects Jonai with Dirak,and another highway, which connects Tezpur in Assam with Tawang. As of 2007, every village has been connected by road thanks to funding provided by the central government. Every small town has its own bus station and daily bus services are available. All places are connected to Assam, which has increased trading activity. An additional National Highway is being constructed following the famous Stillwell Ledo Road, which connects Ledo in Assam to Jairampur in Arunachal.<br />
  7. 7. Education<br />The current education system in Arunachal Pradesh is relatively underdeveloped. The state government is expanding the education system in concert with various NGOs like Vivekananda Kendra.<br />The state has several reputable schools, colleges, and institutions. There are also trust institutes like PaliVidyapith run by Buddhists. They teach Pali and Khamti scripts in addition to typical educational subjects. Khamti is the only tribe in Arunachal Pradesh that has its own script. Libraries of sciptures are located in a number of places in Lohit district, the largest one in Chowkham.<br />Rajiv Gandhi University formerly known as Arunachal University is the premier educational institution, the only university and North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology the only deemed university in the entire state. Additionally, there are 7 government colleges in different districts, providing students a higher education. NERIST plays an important role in technical and management higher education. The directorate of technical education conducts examinations yearly, so that students who qualify can continue on to higher studies in other states.<br />The state has two polytechnic institutions, namely Rajiv Gandhi Government Polytechnic, located at Itanagar, and Tomi Polytechnic College, located at Basar.<br />Sl.

  8. 8. ‘Tourism<br />A cross-section of Changlang town.<br />A view of Tawang Monastery.<br />Arunachal Pradesh attracts tourists from many parts of the world. Tourist attractions include Tawang, a beautiful town famous for its Buddhist monastery, Ziro, famous for cultural festivals, the Namdapha tiger project in Changlang district and Sela lake near Bomdila with its bamboo bridges overhanging the river. Religious places of interest include Malinithan in Lekhabali, Rukhmininagar near Roing (the place where Rukmini, Lord Krishna's wife in Hindu mythology, is said to have lived), and ParshuramKund in Lohit district (which is believed to be the lake where Parshuram washed away his sins).
