Social and Cultural Stratification in North East India

Madhu Rajput (Editor)

India’s North-East region has a kind of unique charm about it. It is a land of mystic splendour and rich cultural heritage that have lured millions around the world. Comprising eight Indian states, the region has about 4,500 kilometres of international borders with Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, China, and Nepal. A significant part of this region is interspersed with hills. Putting together 35 essays, this book tries to highlight several key aspects of North-East India’s social and cultural life including, among others, its society, its tribal groups, marriage systems, folk tales, educational status, festivals, issues of ethnicity and cultural identity, women and their changing status. The essays are grouped into three thematically organized sections: Society and Religion; Education, Festivals and Environment; and Women.

Madhu Rajput

Dr. Madhu  Rajput is Ph.D. in History and is currently working as a Reader in the Department of Western History, University of Lucknow.  Her area of research is South-Asia, specifically Bhutan.  The topic of her Ph.D. was “Indo-Bhutan Relations since 1949 – A Study of Political, Social and Economic Affairs”.

Having explored the less traveled trajectories of Bhutan with all the picturesque and awe-inspiring scenery, it is only natural that she has again undertaken the task of pursuing D.Litt. on Bhutan to unveil the magnificent culture, ethics and the unprecedented events of this mysterious Himalayan kingdom.

She was the Organizing Secretary of the National Seminar on Bhutan held on 24 October 2008, the occasion of the centenary year of the monarchy.  She has presented several papers in National Conferences in India.
