10 Things The Mainland Indians Are Totally Jealous About The North East!

Northeast India is the eastern-most region of India connected to East India via a narrow corridor squeezed between Nepal and Bangladesh. It comprises the contiguous Seven Sister States Arunachal Pradesh,  Assam,  Manipur, Meghalaya,  Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura plus the Himalayan state of Sikkim. (PS: This Intro is for those mainland Indians who doesn’t know about NE)

Here are the list of 10 things that the mainland Indians are totally jealous about NE. On a not so serious point of view, these things may be the reason behind all the racial discrimination against the NE people. 

1. Nature’s bounty

There is no dearth of natural beauty in the North East. We firmly believe in our hearts that paradise lays here.



2. The King Chilli

The hottest chilli in the world, the Bhut Jolokia or Raja Mirchi, comes from this region. It’s like the Chuck Norris of spicy food.


3.  Our inherent knack for music

Almost every North Easterner can play at least one musical instrument



4. The fact that the North East is a thrill seeker’s paradise

Trekking, rafting, angling, you name any adventure sport, the 7 Sisters have got it!


5. We age really well

We have great genes, so it’s easy to lie about our age. 13 or 30, it’s hard to tell.


6. Shillong: The Rock Capital

With a number of music festivals and concerts by bands as big as MLTR and Scorpions, Shillong has proved to be the India’s Musical Mecca.


7. Our impeccable sense of style

We have always been complimented for carrying off funky fashion trends with much élan.


8. Amazing local Rice Wines

Jow, Zutho, Zu Reo, Kakiyat and the many variations of locally brewed wines have one thing in common: they are the closest thing you’ll find to the nectar of the Gods.


9. Mouth-watering smoked pork

Once you’ve tried traditionally smoked pork, it’s hard to go back to bacon and barbecued ribs.


10. Our traditional patterns and motifs

Not only do we proudly wear hand-woven traditional patterns on shawls and jholas, we’ve even made them fashionable.
