Beauty and Nature

   

Assam is a land of Nature situated at the extreme North-East of India. It is divided into 27 districts. Assam, which is situated in the North-East corner of India is surrounded by Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh on the north, Nagaland and Manipur on the east, Meghalaya and Mizoram on the south and Bangladesh, Tripura and West Bengal on the west. A narrow strip of sub - mountainous region of the Himalayas, connects Assam to the Indian mainland. The state is dominated by the river Brahamputra, whose lush 700-kilometre valley is sandwiched between the Himalayan foothills to the north, and the hills and plateau of Meghalaya to the south.

Earlier Assam was known as Pragjyotisha as is found in Mahabharata. At the beginning of the British Rule in India, Assam was not included in the territory of British India. But later in course of time in 1826, the British Government extended its territory and Assam was brought under British Rule. It was British Rule who brought the plantation of tea in the Assam Valley. Today tea gardens throughout the range of Assam valley is a natural beauty site where lacks of labors, who were once brought here from different parts of India are working here together forming a different class of community even though their ancestors lived in different places of India and nurtured under different language.

The people of Assam are in fact the result of fusion of people from different racial stocks who migrated to Assam down the ages. The Assamese population can be divided into two broad groups : the non-tribal people who constitute the majority and the tribals.
