Here is your short paragraph on the India-Burma Border!
The boundary between India and Burma is 1,458 km long and runs from India-China-Burma tri-junction in the north to the southern tip of Mizoram.
This boundary runs roughly along the watershed between the Brahmaputra and Ayeyarwady. It passes through thickly forested hill country, with Mizo Hills, Manipur and Nagaland on the Indian side and Chin Hills, Naga Hills and Kachin state on the Burma side.
Although defined under the treaty of Yundaboo in 1926, this boundary was determined precisely by bilateral treaty signed on March 10, 1967. Barring a few minor incidents, the Indo-Burma-border has remained peaceful due to the goodwill gesture of give and take on both sides.
About 6,100 km long coastline of mainland of India is washed on three sides of the country by the Indian Ocean and its two arms namely the Arabian Sea in the west and the Bay of Bengal in the east. If we add to this the coastlines of Andaman and Nicobar Islands in the Bay of Bengal and Lakshadweep Islands in the Arabian Sea, the total coastline stretches to 7,517 km.
Next to the Himalayas, the Indian Ocean is the most dominant factor which has influenced the destiny of India. It is through the waters of the Indian Ocean that India could establish her trade contacts with the neighbouring countries in the historic past.
One of the greatest climatological phenomena, the Monsoon winds, has their origin in the Indian Ocean. Our water frontiers had been treated to be safe in the past. But the recent technological advancements in naval warfare have made these frontiers vulnerable to attack by the enemy forces and this has necessitated greater defence preparedness. “To be secure on land, we must be secure at sea.”
