 The Nagas are one of the earliest settlers in a place which is divided without their knowledge and made to be under NE of India and Myanmar at present. The maintenance of distinct identity is the Naga original nature and by that they were compel to become the lovers of mountainous region and avoider of valley area for safety sake. As such, in order not to allow any non-Naga to cross over to their area/land (towards Assam), they made the Brahmaputra (molutsu by Ao Naga means ‘Mighty water ending’) river as the cut-off boundary to chase away the intruders. While doing so, Nagas took the easy head hunting advantage plus a sign of demarcation of their land for their future alternative use. As a result of this the valley towards the Naga side had left as no man’s land for some centuries before the arrival of the Ahoms. This was made possible after making friendship/relationship through the marriage of Naga girls by the Ahom kings. The origin and the early Naga way of life which compels them to avoid plain area which is one of the bitterest regret plus most unforgettable insult/torture imposed upon the innocent Naga while dividing/trying to own the land belonging to the Nagas and that was started by the British Govt. ignoring the concrete Ahom-Naga boundary. This problem is still under hanging condition despite of patient request to the Govt. of India for solution.

However, it is lucky for all that the present Naga common sense has the standard of willingness to rectify the past mistake mutually and even repenting the crime of head hunting in the valley and elsewhere, which rank of the head was counted the more closer relationship, the more the heavier committed mercilessly by their forefathers. It is calling all Naga land that let the innocent peace of mind be prevailed freely across the land starting from Dimapur as the Naga starting envy location of plain area and its echo may thrill the world especially the seed sower (the Americans) during the dark hours of human common sense of the Nagas.
