The Northeast could be compared to a huge emerald - lush, gleaming, and green. However, if you look closely, you'll discover that this diamond has a lot of facets – eight to be exact. The northeastern Indian states of Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura, and Sikkim form a beautiful octet.
During the British Raj in the 19th and 20th centuries, the Northeastern states that we know today were founded. Under the influence of British missionaries, many people in the region converted to Christianity. When India acquired independence from the British, Assam and the princely states of Tripura and Manipur made up the majority of the Northeast. Following that, the states of Nagaland, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, and Mizoram were created from the larger state of Assam. In 1972, Manipur and Tripura were given full territory. Sikkim became the eighth and final state in the Northeast in 2002, joining her sisters.
