About Andaman and Nicobar, its a nice,calm and quiet place.Its a union territory of India lies in the Bay of Bengal.It is located in the Indian Ocean.It comprises two island groups,the Andaman island and Nicobar island.It's capital is PortBlair.The islands are covered with dense forests all around. The people in the islands speak many languages.Different people from various parts of India having different languages and different cultures are living together.They lead a happy and peaceful life without any bar in caste and religion.Hindi is their mother tongue and English is their official language.
About 6 tribal groups were there in this island.They are- The Great Andamanese,Nicobari,Shompen,Jarwa,Ongi,Sentinel.These groups of tribes were living in dense forests.They hunted animals and birds,and ate fruits and vegetables.They used weapons like bows,arrows,swords etc.Most of these tribes donot like to mingle with the outside world.Among these tribes Jarwa were the most feared tribals of these island.They threw poisonous arrows.But now they have undestood that humans are not their enemies.As for foods they are non-vegetarians and they mostly eat pork.
As you already know that the British used the islands as a prison for the freedom fighters.The name of the prison is Cellular Jail or also known as KalaPani.Today the complex serves as a National Memorial Monument.There are many tourist places in there. Some of them are Neil island,Ross island,Diglipur,Lime stone cave,Wandoor beach,bird watching center,Animal sanctuary,Boating and lots of Adventure sports and many more like that.The great tsunami of 26th December 2004 caused to heavy damage throughout the territory.
