Customary Laws and Practices of the Maram Nagas
The task of better understanding among people is a difficult one. A vital part of the task is to provide accurate, interesting, readable information about every land, its people and its way of life. Persisting ignorance about other peoples and other lands keeps alive the embers of fear and prejudice that often leads to misunderstanding and misinterpretation. The basic objective of this book is to provide facts and not opinion. The book is written after travelling to various parts of the Maram Naga inhabited areas and a lot of interactions with different age groups-young and old, and of both sexes. The author toured almost all the villages. Many of the facts collected were reviewed, cross examined and checked by a group of young Maram Naga scholars and any disagreement was not left unresolved. All the facts have been collected to illustrate the reality of the lives of the people.
