This is only done out of my own amusement. I think there are proper stats somewhere. I was only counting current places, due to laziness. So, as the postings go...
[ah, never mind. cronic miscount]

Actually i was born in Shillong. have been extremely curious to visit it as my parents say its a beautiful place. You are the first Indian I have come across apart from my family who has actually stayed there.
I will be leaving shortly for my vacation to india and I was planning to go there with my parents. My sisters did their schooling in Shillong in a KV, but I don't remember the name.

Your parents are 100% Right. Its one of the most Beautiful places in India but due to its inaccessiblity not many people plan their Holidays there, though my friends there tell me slowly thats changing for the better.
But U shud definitely go there once and see how beautiful it is. Not for nothing its called the Scotland of the East.
Hows Sing ?? I might plan to come there for a Holiday this Christmas.
