The main objectives of this book “Immediate Challenges in the Hill Areas of Manipur: Education, Economy, Social, and Political realities are to find out what actually are the current problems in the hills Areas of Manipur and its possible ways to the solution. Finding out the topic, we considered these perspectives to be the most burning issues of the tribal societies of Manipur today. In fact, India is a democratic country, having all ideal objectives of liberty, freedom, secularism and equality of all. It is the largest democracy in the world. Manipur is one of its parts and it is visualized as a cooperative common wealth. As per 2011 census, the population of Manipur is 27, 21,756, out of which 10, 96, 532 is the population of the Hills. The Hills are inhabited by more than 35 officially recognised tribes. Though small the land, the problems being faced by its inhabitants on various issues are incomparable with the problems being faced by the people of other parts of the country. According to a report of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), out of the 650 plus districts in the country, almost 250 districts are terror prone due to social, economic and education inequalities. The hill districts in Manipur are not exception to it.
