History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, what they must be.

Arunachal Pradesh History- This subject is something which always ignites me to explore more …
The state remained almost unknown before the advent of the British in Assam (1826). Very scanty information were available about the region. Knowledge regarding Socio-Politico- Economlc conditions of the people were also limited. Even during British period, the indigenous people were kept secluded by different measures. It is only after Independence (1947) that the state received Indian G o v e r n m e n t ’s attention and developmental efforts were initiated and further more after Chinese aggression into Arunachal Pradesh in 1962.
Arunachal Pradesh is inhabited by many tribes and each of them has their own dialects but no script,written documents and literature . Most of their history , literature , culture , customs , folklore , practices , beliefs, rituals, music , songs etc have been passed down through oral narration only.
But fortunately British officers, explorers and anthropologist has done a yeomen service by writing and keeping record of our history through books , official records and audio-video documents .
Here in this page I shall be providing some of those information on books , audio-video and images compiled from net . My intention is only to share the knowledge i gathered for anyone who is interested in Arunachal History.
If any publisher has problem , they can always write to me.
