Data book on Nagaland released

Dimapur, Jan 18 (MExN): A comprehensive book on Nagaland, “Inspiring Nagaland GK”, was launched in Kohima and Dimapur simultaneously on January 16, to cater to needs of students, travelers and professionals. The book starts with a quote of former Chief Minister of Nagaland and present Governor of Goa SC Jamir: “I am from the extreme East of the country (Nagaland) and it is a pleasure for me to serve the people of a state of the extreme West (Goa).”   

Nagaland is the farthest-lying State in Northeast India. It borders the states of Asom and Manipur to the west, Arunachal Pradesh to the northeast, and Myanmar to the east. Nagaland’s capital is Kohima. The largest city is Dimapur. With a population of 19, 88,636 persons approximately, it has a total area of 16,579 km — making it one of the smallest states of the subcontinent. 

This book delves into various aspects of the State including its history, evolution, devolution, development, society, people, geography, physiography, economy, education, culture, politics, faiths, religions etc. The book is envisaged to help amateur quizzers as well as children who are ‘muddled’ in their knowledge of the state. It further provides ‘authentic’ and ‘reliable’ information on the social, political and demographic features of different districts.  The book is a virtual tribute to Dr. Talimeren Ao.
