Photographer's Note

The Chakma, also known as the Changma, are a community inhabiting the Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh, and India. History says that people of Chakma origin are living in Burma, where they are known as Sak/Thet or Thek. It is said that they were taken by the Arakan king after a war with the Chakma king. A tribal group called Tangchangya are also considered to be a branch of the Chakma people.

In Arunachal Pradesh they are refugees with no rights despite a promise given by Miss Gandhi and the Indian government.
