Nagaland is in the north-east corner of India and borders to Myanmar and Bangladesh. It is a hilly country and the roads were generally bad. It was normal not to exceed an average speed of 30 km/hour (20 miles/h).
The population is inhabited by 17 tribes with about 2 million people. These tribes all have distinct and different traditions, clothing, customs and language.Earlier they were wars between the tribes and little sense of community. After Nagaland became a province of India in 1963, the provincial government institured the yearly Hornbill Festival. Much more ablout in a separate post.
Kohima is the capital and the Hornbill Festival is in a separate village where each tribe has their own house. These are open houses that we could visit.
Kohima is on hills and I don’t think there is a horizontal area outdoors, and it is hard to understand how one of the most important battles in WWII was fought here and that a tennis court was a battle field. We saw the tennis court and by the way that was horizontal.
