Nagaland inhabited by the Naga tribes, captured international
attention during world war 2, because it was here that the Japanese advance
was halted by British and Indian troops. Nagas were spirited warriors
and by the end of the 19th century the British reached peace with Nagas
and found them useful as allies in war against the Japanese. After India's
independence, Nagaland became a state in 31 December 1963.
