By Pronali Mukherjee
The historical backdrop of the locale is said in epic Mahabharata. It was ruled by the Manikya administration from the fourteenth century. The Manikyas, who as far as anyone knows had a place with the Indo-Mongolian gathering, ruled over this zone freely even when most parts of the Indian subcontinent were under British principle.
The leaders of the state had a decent connection with the British amid that time and the later helped Tripura to shield itself from the Nawabs of Bengal to assume control over the state. After the autonomy of India, consent to blend Tripura with the Indian Union was marked by the Regent Maharani on September 9, 1947.
This state turned into a union region of the nation without governing body from November 1, 1956 and a service was shaped on July 1, 1963. On January 21, 1972, Tripura got its statehood.
Getting to Tripura was troublesome until when Maharaja Bir Bikram made an airplane terminal in Agartala. Rabindranath Tagore is said to have had a profound touch with this state. The two renowned books by the Nobel laureate, to be specific, the Visarjan and Rajasri were taking into account the legends of the Manikyas.
