INTRODUCTION

Assam is situated in a strategic position, lying in close proximity to Bhutan, Tibet, China, Burma and Pakistan. There are passes through the hills to Bhutan, Tibet, China and Burma. The Chinese Buddhist Pilgrim, Yuan Chwang, attests to that these routes existed long ago. In the 19th Century A.D., the Burmese invaders followed these routes to Assam and so did the Japanese during the Second World War.

It may also be noted in this connection that in recent years the Dalai Lama came to India, after the Tibetan uprising, by a route through these hills and that the same route was followed by the Chinese in their naked and unprovoked invasion of India.
