MON : Longwa

The 'trans-boundary village' of Longwa is an interesting sight to behold- it straddles the international boundary of India and Myanmmar; one half of the house of the powerful Angh falls within India whereas other half lies in Myanmmar. Although some village youths serve under the Myanmarese army, the village itself is governed by the Angh and the Village Council Chairman. There are both Indian and Myanmarese schools in this village. In the past, the Angh had sixty wives and his jurisdiction extended up to Myanmar and Arunachal Pradesh(India).
