Title: Developing the Forgotten Land – Eastern Nagaland in Northwest Burma
Description/subject: "Eastern Nagaland has greatly suffered under the coercive control of the Burmese military junta, and is undoubtedly one of the most forgotten and least developed areas in the whole world. In a land that was forcibly divided by the British, and later annexed by Indian and Burmese forces, development is non-existent. Naga people continue to suffer due to decades of political games that have resulted in severe lack of education, electricity, hospitals or medicine. While most people survive with shifting cultivation, many lives are lost for opium as well as for the continuing battle against oppression. Read on to understand more about the Naga culture and the humanitarian situation in Eastern Nagaland as told by Shapwon, an Eastern Naga leader who founded Eastern Naga Development Organization (ENDO) in exile in Thailand."
