Meghalaya

Meghalaya

Meghalaya /ˌmeɪɡəˈlaɪə/ is a state in north-east India. The name means "the abode of clouds" in Sanskrit. As of 2011, the state has a population of 2,964,007 and is the 23rd most populous in the country. Meghalaya covers an area of approximately 22,430 square kilometers, with a length to breadth ratio of about 3:1. This state is bounded to the south and the west by the People's Republic of Bangladesh and the north and the east by India's Assam. The capital is Shillong, known as the "Scotland of the East". Meghalaya was previously part of Assam, but on 21 January 1972, the districts of Khasi, Garo and Jaintia hills became the new state of Meghalaya. English is the official language of Meghalaya. The other principal languages spoken include Khasi, Pnar and Garo. Unlike many Indian states, Meghalaya has historically followed a matrilineal system where the lineage and inheritance are traced through women; the youngest daughter inherits all wealth and she also takes care of her parents. The state is the wettest region of India, recording an average of 1200 cm of rains a year. About 70% of the state is forested.
