INTRODUCTION

Introduction

Assam, with a great and ancient heritage, has contributed richly both to the evolution and enrichment of the civilization of India. As the frontier province of India on the north-east, Assam has a special position and importance. The boundaries of Assam lie between the latitudes 27' 55' and 23’North and longitudes 89’ 46' and 96’ 10' East. It contains at present an area of 47,091 square miles, of which 24,414 square miles constitute the plain districts, 22,677 the southern hill tracts.

Assam is a part of the country known in ancient times as Pragjyotisa. By this name the country was known in the great epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, as well as in some of the principal Puranas.
