Comment

SubscribeFiled Under: India, Trekking,by Bhakti

Exploring Nagaland was like unfolding secret pages of India’s treasure book. It felt like going back ages & watching a live museum in the era of hunting and farming. It was a real discovery of breathtaking and untouched natural beauty, a preview of hidden and unknown Indian traditions, supreme quality of people and their hospitality.

Can you see Thanamir? Because I can’t! But I have to reach on the top of that Mountain!

It was 3 o’clock in the afternoon. Our driver stopped the car and got down. He went ahead walking. We could not understand what was going on. We were just watching him and he returned after some time and said “Iske aage gadi nahi jaega” (car won’t go any further). That was unexpected. Tsointe had said the car would drop us half a kilometer before Thanamir and villagers would come to help us to carry our luggage. But there was no sign of any village nearby. Roads were deserted. There was deep valley on one side and a huge mountain on the other. Our driver suggested that we can use a short-cut to reach Thanamir. It would supposedly take just one hour to reach Thanamir via this shortcut. We were so angry and at the same time, shocked!

A construction sign as seen in Toronto’s Financial District for all the bankers and other multi-tasking professionals who, as a rule, must walk and read their e-mails or walk and reply to their e-mails at the same time as they walk in the underground Path to grab a coffee, lunch or make their way to the next meeting:

Next day morning we went to Litsaba’s grandfather’s house for breakfast. That was very old and unique house. It was made of soil and was decorated with bison and deer skulls. We understood the secret logic behind this decoration when we reached Thanamir. Me and Shubha got very excited looking at their kitchen. It was perfectly antique (with some modern touch).

Litsaba’s wife had some traditional clothes and jewelry of her mother-in-law. She offered me and Shubha to wear those (absolutely free of cost unlike other tourist destinations) and took some snaps. Litsaba also showed us some weapon which his forefathers used to use for Head Hunting. We were shocked to know that till 1950s there was a tradition of “head hunting” in Nagaland and that is not long back. Do you know what is Head Hunting? Have patience! As we were reaching the interiors of Nagaland we could understand some astonishing facts about it.
