A guided tour of 'outer' India

By Maloy Krishna Dhar
"Have you ever heard of places like Somdal, Chapkikarong, and Soraphung? To many, they might not even sound Indian. But they are areas in the Indian State of Manipur. The Indian Army and paramilitary forces took over three months (November 07 to February 2008) to partially recapture the sensitive Somdal area on the Indo-Myanmar border from hordes of Meitei (Manipuri Hindus) rebel groups."
