Overview

A Saga of the Wanchos of Arunachal Pradesh; A proud tribe of head hunters.

An attack at Ninu in 1875 left many of a British Survey team dead. The British totally isolated the Wanchos until India gained independence. Today these tribals are a proud, modern and vibrant society. This is their story; a historical story never told before. A tale of beautiful Arunachal Pradesh, its evolution as a state; and of ts many tribes. Shawang is the fictitious protagonist. He and his wife, Chanyo, tell you of Wancho life and how they progressed. The people went from primitivity to prosperity; from animism to Christianity. Stories of Bamboo Flowering, Badminton, Assam Rifles, the Naga rebels and of the Stillwell Road to China add interest. These are all woven into this unique story. For better understanding, the story covers Assam's incredible history in brief. This story is a historical treasure to understand the North East. It is invaluable for teachers, school students and historians.

It will interest Army men and administrators, both in Arunachal and all over India. Do wait for the twist at the end to travel back in history.
