Silchar is the headquarters of Cachar district in the state of Assam in India. It is 343km south east of Guwahati. It is the second-largest city of the state in terms of population and municipal area.It also has the 2nd busiest Airport (76 civilian flights/week) in Assam and 4th busiest in North east after Gauwhati, Agartala and Imphal.After around 68 years of Indian independence, only recently, the rail road connectivity has been upgraded to broad gauge. Suresh Prabhu, the present rail minister, has announced direct rail connectivity to metropolitan cities like New Delhi, Kolkata, etc. These trains have commenced their service as planned.Being politically stable in the otherwise disturbed Northeast earned it the bon mot of "Island of Peace" from India's then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.Approximately 90% residents of Silchar are Bengalis who speak the Sylheti dialect, the rest being Bihari people, Bishnupriya Manipuri, Dimasa Kachari (Barman), Manipuri (Meitei), Marwaris, Assamese and some tribal groups like Nagas. Silchar is situated by the banks of the Barak River in what is popularly known as Barak Valley. Rice is the staple cereal. Fish is also widely consumed. Shuţki (the local name for dried fish), shidal chutney and chunga-r peetha (sticky rice cakes prepared inside bamboo shoot) are some of the local delicacies.
