Mizoram

Mizoram Mizoram was part of the state of Assam when India became independent. It became a Union Territory in 1972 and the 23rd state of the Indian Union in 1987.

Area: 21,087 sq km
Population : 8,91,058

Location :
Mizoram nestles in the northeastern corner of India and is shaped like a narrow, inverted triangle.
The state borders Myanmar and Bangladesh in the south and east, while its domestic borders are shared with the states of Assam, Manipur and Tripura.

People :
The Mizos are divided into several tribes the Lushais, Pawis, Paithes, Raltes, Pang, Himars, Kukis, Lakhers and others. They are originally believed to have come from northwestern China and moved towards their present homeland, about 300 years ago. They were earlier worshippers of the spirit called Pathan, but today the Mizo community is greatly influenced by Christianity. Mizos zealously preserve their old customs and lifestyle. This preservation has been possible due to the Inner Line Permit introduced by the British in the last century, which prevented outsiders from settling down in Mizoram, and posing a threat to the indigenous lifestyle.

Main Occupation :
Agriculture is the main occupation of the people. The ginger grown in this area is famous. Paddy, maize, mustard, sugarcane, sesame and potatoes are the other crops grown.
Industry : The major industries in the state are that of handloom and handicrafts. Sericulture is practised widely.
