About Us

NE Travel and Life is an e-zine, which captures the changing face of the Northeast and its people. Everything, they say, begins with a great idea. On our part, we were looking at being a humble platform that could represent the voice and aspirations of Northeast India. The region, which is blessed by verdant landscapes, a rich history, talented people, a vibrant culture that, in our view, needs to be highlighted, understood and respected. Here we steer clear of politics and controversial issues as we focus solely on the positive aspects of the region that have so far been mired by violence and perceived negativity.

We realised that very often media -- both television and print – grossly overlooked the notable changes that were taking place in the region. Being journalists ourselves, we also realised that the responsibility and the ability to change things was with us. How were we to learn of the changes? How were we to absorb, reflect and reveal to the world the amazing people who were catalysts of change and proud ambassadors of this multi-cultural part of India? What could we do to make a difference in our own humble way? How could we showcase the talent of the people from the Northeast - many of whom are spread out in different parts of the world – and share their stories of success, challenges and lessons learnt during the course of their journey?

In search of answers, over endless phone sessions, numerous cups of masala chai, and innumerable meetings and conversations, we came to the conclusion that there was a desperate need to have a platform that could represent – and be the voice of – Northeast India. In a bid to understand what people wanted, our own research showed that a wide section of those from the Northeast – as well as youngsters from other parts of India – were genuinely interested to have a companion that could show them a young and happening Northeast in addition to its culture, music and cuisine.

It was this idea that led us to create NE Travel and Life, the e-zine, which captures the changing face of the Northeast and its people. Here, you’ll find success stories, impressions, travel tips, local cuisine wonders, and some of the major events that no mainstream media reports about. This is our humble endeavour and we are sincerely hoping that with a simple ‘click’ of the mouse, NE Travel and Life will unravel some of the most wonderful, heartfelt and amazing stories that will compel you to sit up and understand why NE is so precious, so rich.

We hope you enjoy reading NE Travel and Life as much as we love putting it together for you. We welcome suggestions to improve ourselves so that you, dear reader, and us can together join hands in creating NE Travel and Life as the best forum for showcasing talent and recording not just the region’s growth but also its success and prosperity.
Happy reading!
