The many regions of NE India find mentions in our ancient religious manuscripts and in the Mahabharata.

Pls follow this thread for more information.

There is more info but can't be subsumed in tweets.

#Assam the land of blue hills and rivers, is the land of Usha, who was enamored of Aniruddha, the prince of Dwarka. #Meghalaya, abode of clouds was the dreamland of Pramila.
#ArunachalPradesh, where the sun rises above the snow capped mountains, was the homeland of Rukmini whose beauty enchanted Lord Krishna.#Manipur the dale of songs and dances was the land of Chitrangada and in #Nagaland, the eastern sentinel of our country, Arjun’s Ulupi was born.
#Tripura is the land of Queen Tripura Sundari and the damsels of the blue mountains of #Mizoram are as colourful as the river Dhaleswari herself…”
Assam also known as Pragjyotishpur or the city of eastern lights ,was the gateway to the region and was founded by King Naraka  an Asura, an enemy of  Lord Krishna and the Devas.
King Naraka’s son Bhagadatta finds mention in the Mahabharat too.
as being one of the participants in the Kurukshetra battle of Mahabharata heading a huge army of Kiratas. Later Pragjyotishpur came to be known as Kamarupa and is mentioned in the Kalika Purana and the Vishnu Purana.
#ArunachalPradesh is said to be kingdom of the King Bhismaka
whose pretty daughter Princess Rukmini had eloped with Lord Krishna just on the day of her swayamvar and had resulted in a fierce battle between Lord Krishna and her brother Prince Rukma.
#Meghalaya has been mentioned as Pramila kingdom in our texts.
#Manipur and #Nagaland feature prominently in the Mahabharata, post the battle of Kurukshetra with Princess Chitrangada of Manipur and Princess of Uloopi.
The ancient name of #Tripura was Kirata and it is claimed that they descended from Yayati , a chandravanshi one of whose descendants founded the kingdom,
his son Trilochana was a devout king and is said to have attended King Yudhisthira’s Rajasyuya Yagya as an ally.
