North East India

If you have never been to North East India, you are missing a lot. The seven states – the seven sisters as they are known – are so full of nature’s beauty and bounty.

Each state will have tales of history, traditions, and pride to share. Being mostly tribal lands, the natives are more attuned to less city culture. With a close intimacy to the nature and their traditions, each clan has its own way of living and being.

The hilly and forest terrain in most of these states imply normal and smooth mode of transportation is less likely. However, passing times have brought developments and modernization all over. There are not international airports too besides national highways and a few railway lines.

High altitude and more hills and forests and less pollution make sure the climate is always pleasant in these regions. During winter, the weather can be extreme and can be unbearable for outsiders.

Paradoxical title that brims with meaning. As the movie progresses a beautiful story is unwrapped. The length of the movie justifies the striking representation of events from transforming era and continents. The opening scene and a few subsequent scenes may not be appropriate for minor viewers. Yet, they hold significant importance to perfect the story.
