     I worked in the north-east for 3 years (1973-76) and what I
understood
     from the people there was that, before Independence, India's
national
     leaders had promised the tribal peoples there the opportunity to
     decide their own future.  However, when Independence finally
arrived,
     this promise was entirely ignored.  The resulting feeling of
betrayal
     was then compounded by our misgovernance of the entire area (then
the
     State of Assam).

     No idea whether the above is true or false, merely what I was told
by
     people on "that" side of the story.  Well, the misgovernance part
is
     true....

     Perhaps members of IPI who specialise in Indian history can
confirm,
     clarify or rebut the rest.
