Geographical Location of Hnahthial

There in the green belt valley surrounded by Denlung Tlang, Aithur Tlang and Rallang Tlang lies Hnahthial, a town which has been yearning for a district headquarters for almost 20 years now amidst the hollow promises of politicians and bureaucrats. In fact, Hnahthial District was created by the state government and notified vide No.A.600011/21/95-GAD/Pt Dated Aizawl, the 12th September, 2008 but nothing has been done afterwards by the new government as a follow-up of that notification other than making lame excuses. Hnahthial is a developing town inhabited by over 7000 people and located on the 54 National High Way between Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram, India and Lunglei, a district headquarters under which jurisdiction Hnahthial itself is one of the towns.You will have to travel by road 200 km south from Aizawl or 87 Km north from Lunglei to reach this beautiful serene town, the latitude 22.9653238 and longitude 92.930081 are the geocoordinates of the Hnahthial and is located in the UTC 5.30 time zone and it follows indian standard time (IST).

 Education and Hnahthial

The children of Hnahthial are fortunate enough to have different institutions in their locality where they are sent to by their parents or guardians at a very low cost. One such school amongst the existing  six private schools is Nuchhungi English Medium School with the largest number of students enrolment for a considerable number of years. In fact, the students enrolment in the government-run schools is decreasing rapidly in recent years contrary to that of the private schools which admit more and more students each year. This clearly shows how the local people rate the schools run by the state government and those run by private individuals or the local churches from their performance. In any chain of educational system, the importance of elementary education can never be ignored. Children should be treated well right from their very first day at school, otherwise, it could be too late.
