Peace process in Nagaland draws one’s attention to the impending havoc if the Nagas’ declaration of ‘integration’ of all Naga inhabited areas, that has definite territorial dimension, is not dealt with great maturity of mind. Naga political conflict which was commenced since the late 1940s is un-fathomable without understanding the Nagas’ aspiration for integration. Such aspiration of the Nagas, however, has the potential to set-off fresh round of conflict in the Northeast region of India involving the issue of redrawing the boundary of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Manipur. In the light of this, the following paper will make an effort to examine the territorial difficulties involved in the Nagas’ aspiration. It will also try to analyse the authenticity of the Nagas’ claim for integration as their ‘birthright’.
