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.

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.
