By Sadaf Nizam
The state of Uttarakhand is bordering Himachal Pradesh in the north-west and Uttar Pradesh in the South and has international borders with Nepal and China. The state is very rich in natural resources. The soothing weather in the valley supports a variety of rarest flora and fauna. The life of the people here seems to be little slow compared to the metropolitan cities. The State has two divisions (Garhwal and Kumaun), with 13 Districts, which can be grouped into three distinct geographical regions, the High mountain region, the Mid-mountain region and the Terai region. Dehradun, being the capital of the state is supposed to be most developed of all the other regions and is well known for its salubrious climate and natural beauty and some of the renowned institutes like The Indian Military Academy, Lal Bahadur Shastri Academy of Administration and The Forest Research Institute.
