Even after sixty years of independence, integration with the rest of India has eluded the eight states of the North East riven by insurgencies and secessionist struggles. What are the conflicts that inflame the North East frontiers of India? Does the Indian government understand the complexity of the forces that impair the region? Is it aware of the North East’s feeling of alienation from the rest of India? What are the shortfalls in security in this region laid waste by relentless violence? In its quest to zealously guard the nation’s frontiers, has New Delhi unconscionably ignored concerns of development? In this collection, eleven specialist commentators on the North East critically examine aspects of security in the region. Frontier in Flames is a definitive departure from the existing debates on this topic in its censure of the Indian government’s policy towards the region. In their analyses, while agreeing on the principal reasons why the land of the seven sisters continues to burn, the writers suggest strong remedial measures to establish peace and prosperity in the region. Printed pages: 240.
