About the Book:

The valley of Manipur in several respects resemble in miniature of India. In both the civilized people who occupy the central region of the State settled and organised the area are nearly akin to the wild folk who inhabit the hills which enclose the alluvial plain. But while its neighbour, Burma has accepted the mild and gentle religion of Buddha, and thus profoundly modified the original animistic cult, Manipur has been taken into the pale of Hinduism, and has imposed upon itself burdensome restrictions of caste and ritual from which Burma is happily free. Since the advent of orthodox Hinduism, the Meitheis, dominant race of Manipur are claiming descent from Arjuna, one of the Pandavas.<-p>

Manipur was once a princely State and later became one of the 26 States of the Union of India. It remains economically backward and politically unstable due to lack of political maturity and poor relationship between the hills and the valleys. Manipur remains an unknown area to most Indians and one reason for this may well be the absence of good books about the people and problems of Manipur. This book has filled the void.<-p>
