Students from Meghalaya

Meghalaya is in the Northeast India north-east of India. The word "Meghalaya" literally means the Abode of Clouds in Sanskrit and other Indo-Iranian languages. As one of the Seven Sister States of India, the State of Meghalaya is also known as the "Meghalaya Plateau".

About one third of the state is forested. Previously it was a part of Assam, but on January 21, 1972, the districts of Khasi, Garo and Jaintia hills became the new state of Meghalaya.

Meghalaya is predominantly an agrarian economy. With average annual rainfall as high as 1200 cm in some areas, Meghalaya is the wettest place on earth. The western part of the plateau, comprising the Garo Hills Region with lower elevations, experiences high temperatures for most of the year. The Shillong area, with the highest elevations, experiences generally low temperatures. The maximum temperature in this region rarely goes beyond 28 °C (82 °F), whereas sub-zero winter temperatures are common.

The best time to visit Meghalaya is during the months of March to July.

The Education system of Meghalaya though has undergone lot of improvements in the last decade, however it is still a major concern among the educationists.

Poor economic condition of the masses usually cannot afford the expenses of higher education.

Students not finding better way to emerge in their own field of interest usually opt out of the place in search for better opportunities. They usually prefer Bangalore, Kolkata and Delhi like studies to pursue their higher education.
