text: Both in Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh there may, however, be the danger that educational progress and with it the unbridled growth of ambitions will outstrip economic advance, and that in the long run the local economy will be unable to carry the administrative and educational superstructure which is now being built up with outside funds provided by the Central Government. This (262) danger may be greater in Nagaland than in the Apa Tani valley,. where a system of intensive soil utilization has been in existence for many generations, and the psychological climate for further improvements is probably better than in Nagaland.
