North East is a cauldron of various cultures, faiths, traditions and customs. It constitutes an amazing rainbow of faiths and rituals. What is called indigenous faith is in fact the original faith of our people during the less scientific civilizations. Their pristine closeness to nature, their unflinching beliefs in the different spirits that govern their life is a priceless treasure of our country. We may call their faith either Animism or Pantheism which is indeed a vital offshoot of Sanatana Dharma. The North East now comprises eight states, each having its distinct history, a well defined geography, a vibrant culture and much valued traditions. An attempt shall be made here to look a bit more closely at some of the faiths, its associated rituals as practiced by our people for centuries inhabiting the remote, far flung areas of our country. Most of them still live in close proximity with nature untouched by the mad waves of materialism. Pantheism or Animism remains their invisible guiding spirit, silently inspiring and shaping their life from birth to death.

GENDER, as a term generally indicates either of the two sexes (male and female), but while referring the term according to social and cultural arena it denotes a fabricated construct rather than a biological one .With such convention, gender creates a tendency of biasness which occurs when one individual or group unconsciously attributes certain attitudes and stereotypes to another person or group of people. This genesis of gender is delineated by Buchi Emecheta in her aspiring novel “THE JOYS OF MOTHERHOOD”(1979) where she points out the difference concerning with three generations in which she deliberately mentioned the colonialist influence, along with the supremacy of the social representation or construction. There are basically competing theories about the cause of gender inequality in Africa, but scholars suggest its genesis is in slavery and colonialism.

They are Seven Sisters. And all are ace archers. Are they the reincarnations of Chitrangada, an epic Mahabharata lead role and wife of the supreme marksman Arjuna?
Something to wonder at the lingering of tradition! Is not it?
Yes! It is!
Sometimes in some corners of India, we find the strange continuance of traditions of ancient legends and mythology. The Seven Sisters is one of them.
On exercising our brain a little, we can realize this strange fact in the case of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura. They all are strongly connected with archery mirroring mythology, the epics and history. Add a comment Read more: Hitting the Bull’s Eye
