    Meticulously planned itinerary and We visited capital city Imphal and the floating islands of Loktak Lake, Manipur; capital city Kohima, mountain city Mokokchung and three nearby Ao villages in tribal Nagaland; and magical Majuli Island and one-horned rhino land of Kaziranga National Park in Assam.

    We have all traveled throughout India together over the years India is native land to one couple , yet this trip exposed us to a new and exciting set of cultural and natural experiences that we will talk about for years to come. Accompanying us on this two-week sojourn was Rajiv Verma, founder and principal of Northeast Explorers. We were extremely fortunate that Rajiv personally brought this trip to life for us and showed us through his eyes the love he has for Northeast India.

    His knowledge of the region and his passion for its people and culture enabled us to appreciate many aspects of this world unfolding to us. We immediately established a rapport with him, and he keenly learned our interests so he could guide us effectively.

    Rajiv's caring nature was reassuring for us as older travelers who sometimes have particular needs. Plus he's a great guy with an engaging personality. I cannot imagine a better way to explore this seldom visited, remote part of India than with Northeast Explorers.

    We only saw a small part of this six-state region, and Rajiv has experiences that cover all the areas. Look no further for another tour company.

    Lots of fond memories. Thank you Rajiv for organizing! The trip All the home stays during the trip were comfortable to stay in and we enjoyed the home cooked meals in most home stays, specially the home stay in Tawang and in Shillong and Cherrapunjee, we both being vegeterians. Jameer, accompanying us with the Innova was also very helpful and drove well throughout the trip. Rajeev also used to call us everyday to ensure that there were no hiccups in the journey.

    Overall we enjoyed our trip thoroughly thanks to the well thought out itinerary and execution by North East Explorers.

    Everything was well organised and all the Great experience! Avery good trip. The car innova was in good condition and the driver cum tour guide Mr Nagraj was all what you required. I would recommend to all as there was no effort on my part except calling him once a while. Everything was catered by Rajeev.

    Will positively take my next trip in the North East with Rajeev. Thanks a lot. It was a wonderful The stay was great especially at Tawang. The homestay at Tawang made us feel like home. The trip to Bumla Pass was the major highlight. Thanks to Rajiv and driver Nageesh for making our trip memorable. What stood out was Rajiv calling us everyday of the trip to collect our feedback.

    Right from the minute He made sure that we were taken care of every minute. The itinerary was followed to the tee. The driver Mr. Kamal handled the rough terrains expertly.

    The picturesque villages and streams were quite a sight. The homestays arranged were clean and the owners received us with great love. They looked after us as if we were their own family. The homestay in Tawang Dondrub homestay definitely deserves 5 stars. In all this was one of the most memorable vacations we took. From the very first interactions He takes personal care with the planning of the trip, hand picks the places that we stay in and overall makes the experience a memorable one.

    The places you stay are all homestays, which is the speciality that Rajiv offers. We were initially skeptical about the same, but Rajiv assured that this was the best part of the travel where you get the feel of a home like stay. He was indeed correct. They were well prepared for our arrival and took great care of us. Travelling with a 5 year old, this was very important.

    Most importantly the our driver Nagesh who accompanied us through the trip was very knowledgeable. He understands your tastes and preferences very quickly and chooses restaruants very wiesly. The plan that he does is also pretty amazing. A couple of times where we started late, we still did not find the pinch of time and were able to see all the places we had to cover, thanks to Nagesh.

    This he does without overspeeding. A very careful driver and a wonderful person to interact with. The most unusual part of the trip is the followup you get from Rajiv. He calls you couple of times every day, takes personal care in ensuring that everything is fine. We also met him on the way, where he says that he makes is a point to meet his guests atleast once during their journey.

    Very different from a lot of tourist operators who get you started with a trip and don't care from there. During our trip we had an unfortunate emergency. The urgency with which both Nagesh and Rajiv helped us out through the same was quite amazing. They took a lot of care in ensuring that we got all the help possible during the time of crisis which meant a lot to us.

    Overall we had a very memorable experience of the NE, thanks to Rajiv. I would definitely explore more of NE and would definitely do that wth the help of Rajiv and his team.

    The itinerary provided by us was executed Though the homestays provided were good, it would have been great, if we were giving some options to select from. Special thanks to Rajiv for taking care of us in last 2 days which was unplanned due to flight cancellation. During my visit to India in December, I wanted to explore Meghalaya with my parents.

    Since this was my first trip to the region, I reached out to North East Explorers for their curated itineraries of the region. From communication with Rajiv Verma, my point of contact, it seemed like he was committed to eco-tourism and knew the region like the back of his hand.

    Within the first couple of hours of the trip I realized we were given a generic itinerary with no thought about the time of the year in mind. I got to know from the driver that Meghalaya's waterfalls are dry in December for the last couple of years. In addition, the home stays were not in line with the amount we paid for the package. In fact in one home stay the host was rude and grumpy.

    With a little digging, I found Rajiv had charged us lot more than what the trip was actually worth. Not a budget-friendly tour agency. For example, the itinerary had a guided walk in a thousand-year-old sacred grove, a guide was provided.

    But for the boat-ride on the Umnkot river, boat ride was not included and there was no mention of the exclusion on their website. When I pointed out the discrepancies, Rajiv shrugged it off saying my expectations are different from most others! When a client requests for a customized trip based on your claimed expertise, doesn't it make sense to demonstrate your expertise by recommending itineraries based on the season?! Rajiv took no corrective actions even after he was aware of our dissatisfaction.

    In fact, his daily check-in messages stopped after the conversation. Disappointing customer service as well.

    His excuse for the generic itinerary was that my parents were senior citizens. It's hard to believe that the only senior citizen-friendly itinerary for the NE in December is visiting dry waterfalls in Meghalaya. North East Explorers is just like any other run-off-the-mill tour agency, their eco-tourism mantra is a trap.

    Rajiv's guidance and periodic check through call is really Vicky was down to earth about explaining the history and culture of the place. Overall an excellent trip and looking forward to have another one in near future. Start to end everything was very well organised by Rajiv. The entire group was given personal I never felt that I have meet rajiv for the first time, flawless conversation on Nagaland tribes, culture and answer to all the questions.

    Ha ha ha Best of luck and catch u soon for more adventurous trips Rajvi has very good knowledge about the region, history, geography culture and that's what made the experience even more wonderful. I reviewed several tour He customised the trip to our needs, was very responsive and provided advance alerts on the situation on the ground.

    In the war against the British colonial expansion, many martyrs of the tiny kingdom of Manipur laid down their lives to save the dignity, honour and sovereignty of their motherland despite the inevitable defeat against the mighty empire of the British. After the graceful defeat at the Battle of Khongjom where the Manipuri armies fought gallantly under Major Paona Brajabashi, Manipur lost its sovereignty to the British. And, on the fateful day of 13th August , martyrs of Manipur- Yubraj Tikendrajit, Thangal General were hanged in front of the public at Pheidabung, presently known as Bir Tikendrajit park.

    That was one of the most shocking incidents the people of Manipur witnessed in its history. After the Anglo-Burmese war, Manipur was placed under the protection of British officials with payment of taxes in return, with Gambhir Singh being recognized as Raja of Manipur. The office of British Political Agent was established in Manipur in to promote friendly relations between Manipur and the British. This marked the beginning of British colonialism in Manipur.

    The frequent internal conflicts of palace intrigues and coups allowed the power of the Political Agent to rise and this British office turned out to be the de facto administrator of the state.

    After the death of Maharaja Chandrakirti, his son Surchandra became the king with Kullachandra as the Yubraj crown prince and Tikendrajit as the Senapati.

    But the princes were divided into two parties animated by hostile feelings towards one another for the post of the king. Backed by Tikendrajit, Kullachandra revolted against the reigning Maharaja Surchandra on 12th September Surchandra fled to the residence of the Political Agent, Mr Grimwood and informed him that he had formally abdicated the throne in favour of his brother Kulachandra and decided to retire to Brindavan.

    On the same day when Surchandra left for Brindavan, Kullachandra became the king of Manipur with Tikendrajit as Yubraj, on 23rd September While Kulachandra was not formally recognised by the British crown as the king of Manipur, Surchandra complained to the then Viceroy, Lord Landsdown when he reached Calcutta that he had been dethroned by his stepbrothers mainly backed and engineered by Tikendrajit. This prompted the British to arrest Tikendrajit sensing his potential and signs indicative of shaking off the yoke of dependence on the British officials.

    Mr Quinton informed Kullachandra of the intention of the British government that Kullachandra would be recognised as the king of Manipur while Tikendrajit had to be exiled. Kullachandra was asked to hand over Tikendrajit to the British to which Kullachandra refused. This led the British force to enter the house of Tikendrajit without declaring war and attacked Kangla, the palace of Manipur on 24th March The unprecedented and unjust act of the British caused the death of a large number of innocent people, including women and children besides heavy casualties and bloodshed on both sides.

    Skene, Cossin and Lt. Simpson went to the palace the next day, unarmed and without escorts. When the British officers returned and moved towards the gate, they were attacked by the agitated crowd. Pukhramba Kajao speared Grimwood as an act of impulse and Lt.

    Simpson was also badly injured. At the demand of the agitated crowd, General Thangal gave the order to the public executioner to kill the British officers and all the British officers were beheaded in front of the Kanglasa.

    As soon as the news reached Calcutta on 31st March , the Government of British India declared war against Manipur and sent very large columns of their Army from three directions, one from the north through Kohima under the command of their Major General H.

    Collett, who was also the overall Commander of the British Forces, advanced for operations in Manipur, another column advanced from the west from Silcher under the command of Colonel RHF Rennick and the third column came from the south from Tamu, Burma Myanmar under the command of Brigadier General T. On 27th April , all the three British columns occupied Imphal, the capital of Manipur sounding the death knell of whatever sovereign power Manipur had enjoyed.

    After the British troop occupied Manipur, the Government of British India constituted a court to try Kullachandra, Tikendrajit, Thangal and many others. Kullachandra, Tikendrajit and Thangal were sentenced to death but the death sentence of Kullachandra was commuted to transportation for life and forfeiture of property.

    Amidst the massive protest from the people, Tikendrajit and Thangal were hanged to death on 13th August The story of bravery and patriotism of those heroes still keeps on instilling the love of their motherland upon the hearts of generations of Manipuris. Total Comments - 0.

    Ha ha ha To strictly enforce the lockdown, the cabinet also resolved to impose a total curfew during the lockdown period, he said, adding activities related to essential services will be exempted from the purview of the lockdown. Clarifying the need of a total lockdown, N. Biren Singh said the negligence of many people to follow safety protocol has led to the rise of local spread in some of the districts.

    However, nothing is more important than saving lives.
