ABOUT THE BOOK

This collection contains an assortment of life-patterns of the multi-ethnic tribal and non-tribal communities of North East India. The work reflects the life-ways of the people since around the onset of the closing three decades of the last century. That was the period of heavy impact of Western as well as pan-Indian socio-cultural norms of the people of the region. The work highlights the people's way of absorption and assimilation of the neo-West-oriented as well as pen-Indian socio-cultural elements in their emergent life-patterns.As the North Eastern People's traditional life-ways are fast disappearing under the impact of multiple forces and factors. The work in this collection should serve the purpose of bench-marketing the trend and quantum of change in the foreseeable future.
