text: Objectively, however, the standard of living had clearly risen, and I only wondered whether this rise brought about by the massive injection of public funds by the Central Government could be maintained once Nagaland had to rely to a greater extent on its own resources. There seems to be a danger that educational progress and the newly stimulated demand for goods brought from outside Nagaland might outstrip economic advance, and that in the long run the local economy might not be able to carry the administrative and educational superstructure built up with central funds.
