This is not the first time Minister Along has showcased the wonders of Nagaland. He previously shared a captivating glimpse of Longwa village, located in the Mon district. Longwa village is unique because the international border between India and Myanmar runs right through the house of the village chief, Angh.
In a lighthearted caption accompanying the video, Minister Along humorously noted that the village chief only needs to go to his bedroom to cross the border. Angh’s bedroom falls within Indian territory, while the rest of his house is situated in Myanmar. This fascinating arrangement allows him to sleep in India and dine in Myanmar without ever leaving his home.
OMG | यह मेरा इंडिया
To cross the border, this person just needs to go to his bedroom.
बिलकुल ही "Sleeping in India and Eating in Myanmar" वाला दृश्य😃
