I dreamt about Nagaland after I saw it on the map one day. Obsessed about the place, it took me a few years before I finally visited this strip of land between Burma and NorthEast India.
The Konyaks are said to be the last headhunters of Nagaland with many of their culture intact. There have been a cultural revival within the last 7 years due to encouragement of the Naga government, the youth and many younger adults do not know much about their tribal heritage and their cultural history.
I left a part of myself in Nagaland, made great friendships and family. A big thank you to the Toalem family in Mon District who is now known as my Naga family.
