The eastern region of India comprises the states of West Bengal, Odisha, Jharkhand, and Bihar; in its easternmost part lie the eight hill states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Mizoram, Nagaland, Manipur, Meghalaya, Tripura, and Sikkim. One of the most important rivers that flow through this region is the mighty Brahmaputra, which originates in Tibet and eventually merges into the Bay of Bengal.

The region was the historical centre of several mighty dynasties whose kings and emperors helped it flourish and prosper right from 13th century (Islamic rulers), Mughal empire (16th and 17th centuries) and thereafter colonial rule (till mid 20th Century). Many battles were fought in what is today State of West Bengal and Tea Plantations of Darjeeling (developed during Raj era) have achieved an Iconic status in Western World for its “Darjeeling Tea”, making East India an integral part of the Colonial history.
