Folklore is a wide-ranging expression of archaic culture of great wealth and complexities. This in-depth study relates to the folk tales, myths, legends, rites and rituals, folk songs and deals with the most selective and representative items (aspects) of the tribal cultural heritage of North East India. The book takes a cohesive and multi-dimensional view of the traditional forms and social practices, beliefs and rituals, tales and songs of this beautiful part of the country which is thriving with all-round development into the rushing stream of modern life. The study would immensely benefit researchers of social sciences, and historians, orientalists, folklorists and literateurs.
