  1. Manipur

    Manipur is a state in northeastern India, with the city of Imphal as its capital. Its people include the Meetei, Pangal, Naga, Kuki, and Mizo, who speak different languages of branches of the Tibeto-Burman family. The state is bounded by Nagaland to the north, Mizoram to the south, and Assam to the west; Burma lies to the east. It covers an area of 22,347 square kilometres. Manipur is an area that bind by Draconian Rule The Armed Forces Act 1958 under Indian Forces, for more than 50 years. The vaguely formulated provisions of the Act grant extraordinary powers to the Indian armed forces in the so-called “disturbed areas” where it is applicable. The Act has been at the heart of concerns about human rights violations in the region, such as arbitrary killings, torture, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment and enforced disappearances. Its continued application has led to numerous protests, notably the longstanding hunger strike by Ms. Irom Chanu. Manipur can serve as the India's Gateway to the South-East Asia. The proposed Trans-Asian Railway Network if constructed, will pass through Manipur, connecting India to Burma, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore .
