Description

North-East region, a vital entity of great Indian land has been in the limelight in spite of being geographically in the extreme corner of the country. In the recent times by virtue of being a major source of oil, tea, forest produce and medicinal herbs, the region has acquired special importance for India. Dominantly mountainous, North-East forms natural walls separating India from adjacent lands. The mighty river Brahmaputra with several tributaries, apart from being a great gift of fertility and civilization for India has also proved a great integrating force uniting North-East with national mainstream.

Here is a book that gives fair account of origin, history, rich cultural heritage, customs, traditions and belies of various tribes now settled in different parts of North-East. The author has paid well deserved attention to various segments of the region and concentrated on past researches, the life, economic conditions, occupational patterns, arts and crafts, traditional dormitories and inherent concepts, dresses, entertainment and rapidly changing cultural and economic scene of the North-East.

With supporting photographs these accounts will enrich the knowledge and delight the readers as they derive their authenticity from personal observations of the author.
