This Itinerary takes into account the latest situation in DIMAPUR after the sudden Jail-break that erupted in DIMAPUR very recently and we have had to eliminate Kolkata from the Itinerary forwarded to you earlier. To proceed to Imphal and Kohima we still have to take permission though the Restricted Area Permits earlier required for the foreigners are no longer necessary. We do however abide by the Police checks enroute and follow the restrictions as were imposed as earlier by the Britishers in 1873 were retained by successive administrations on the advice of people like Dr. VERRIER ELLWYN and Mr. K L MEHTA, the first Indian Administrator appointed for this area by Pt NEHRU, who encouraged everyone in the chain, to firmly believe that the tribal culture could co adjust successfully and their success in administering these areas rested, on least possible interference and using traditional institutions for the day to day governance of these areas. The two areas selected for your Tour are MANIPUR and NAGALAND. While MANIPURs early history starts with events recorded from the foundations of the ruling dynasties of Year 1606, NAGALAND had NO written records and the MISSIONARIES had to provide a roman script for the children who started studying in Schools set up by them. MANIPUR thus has a very rich culture, while the tribals living in NAGALAND areas were left to the missionaries and the Britishers just provided them a protective umbrella and roman script for the various spoken languages.
