Assam

Assam is a unique state of north eastern part of India. It is situated at the heart of the seven north eastern states Assam covers an area of about 78,438 Km. It is bonded by Bhutan and Arunachal Pradesh on the North, Mizoram and Meghalaya on the South, Nagaland and Manipur on the East and Tripura, Bangladesh and West Bengal on the West. Prior to 1972 Shillong was the capital of Assam. But in 1972 it capital was shifted from Shillong and established at Dispur at the outskirts of Guwahati. Assam was known by different names in different periods. In the “Ramayana” and “Mahabharata” the great epies, Assam was mentioned as “Pragjyotish” which means the land of eastern light. From 4th & 5th century B.C. The name “Kamrupa” became more popular than Pragjyotish. Prior to 13th century this land was not known as Assam. At the early part of 13th century, i.e in 1228 B.C. Tai Ahom under the leadership of Sukapha conquered Brahmaputra Valley and establish Ahom Kingdom. So the local inhabitants began to call them “Asama” or “Ahoma”. From this “Ahoma” this tribe came to known as “Ahom”; later on the land they occupied was called Asom. The indigenous Assamese people include ethnic groups like Assamese Brahmins (including Ganaks), Ahom, Koch, Rajbonshi, Kacharis, Rabha, Karbi, Chutias, Kalitas, Reot (Kailash), Assamese Muslims, Assamese Sikhs and Assamese Christians speaking Assamese or any other tribal dialect of Assam as their mother tongue.Geographically Assam can be divided into three physical divisions. They are the (1) Brahmaputra Valley, (2) The Barak Valley and (3) the hilly area of Karbi Anglong and North Cachar District. The climate of Assam is mainly moderate i.e neither to hot nor to cold. Owing to this favorable climate and fertile soil most part of the land is covered with forest and its resources. Karizranga, Manas, Orang, Laokhowa, Sonairupa, Pabitara and Nambar are the seven big forest of Assam. The world famous one horned Rhino is found in the Karizanga National Park. Assam is also known for Assam Tea, Assam silk and huge reservoir of mineral resources. Chief among them are oil and natural gas, coal, limestone, China Clay etc.The life style of Assamese society was based on the Hindu undivided family system. Brahmins occupied the top most position in the society and exercised immense influence upon it. But in Assam caste system is not very rigid. Here the Assamese people and people belonging to different tribes live peacefully in cooperation with each other. The Socio Cultural transaction that take place between these people exercise great influence on their societies and they live in harmony irrespective of their caste and creed.
