"The traditional Indian social system has been changing very fast because of the steadily engulfing forces of modernization, urbanization, industrialization and other such processes. It has drastically affected the rural family structure in general and the age-old Indian joint family system in particular.
In urban fringes the joint family system has been disintegrated to a large extent and therefore, the social and economic significance of this institution has significantly diminished. The fact of consumerism and individualistic attitude of the younger generation has necessitated them to drift away from their villages to gain more comfort and achieving future goals in urban areas(less)

Though written primarily with the avowed intention of producing a book for the visitors to Dacca (as it was spelt then) as a handy guide to the historic past of the city, the second edition turned out to be much more comprehensive and full of the author's thoughts on various social and cultural issues. Drawing upon the various earlier works, Dani undertook extensive field work to record in greater details the historic(less)
First published in 1935, this book offers refreshing insights into British India and contains over two hundred rare and fascinating photographs. Beyond the apparent purposes of these images--as picturesque views, scientific records of the architectural past and socio-cultural survey - deeper consideration influenced the way these images have been presented.
These views are enduring records of minds as well as monuments, and exist today as artefacts of the visual culture of the Raj. A millennium and a half separates the first photograph in this book from the last.
The noble simplicity and reposeful grandeur of the first reveals hellenistic influence(less)

"In the world of library and information technology, a catalogue is a key to knowledge and learning. In a library, cataloguing is the most important work.
As a matter of fact, catalogue is a list of books, maps, coins, stamps, sound recordings, or materials in any other medium that constitute a collection. Its prime purpose is to record, describe and index the holdings of a specific collection.
Besides cataloguing, bibliographic control is a transcription of the complete cataloguing record : (i) to provide all the information necessary to describe an item accurately both physically and intellectually in order to distinguish it from every other item, and (ii) to provide its location in the classified collection.

Bibliography. "Uptil recently, in India as in many other developing countries, the role of women in the economic activity of the nation was practically ignored.
The increasing participation of women in the work-force, the multiple role of women as mothers, homemakers and paid workers and misunderstandings of the nature of unemployment among women, therefore, suggest the usefulness of describing trends and relationships, in labour force participation as a background for asessing the volume of employment, occupational structure and the impact of economic growth. In this light, the present study analyses in depth the changing role of women in occupational structure with the economic development of the society.

Hence women themselves resist change unless they are trained to think out of the box of patriarchy. Nag society is steeped in patriarchal values, and gender seems to be only a politically correct stance we talk at meetings and discussions.
Gender disparities still abound. We have come a long way, but we have only made progress toward changing the situation rather than eradicating it.
The present volume meticulously prepared by the two young Nag scholars is also in line with the same trend. The collection of essays contributed by the cross-sections of professional sociologists, journalists, administrators and a few young researchers provides a panoramic view of the changing gender equation in Naga society.
Definitely, this edition will be a beneficial reading for all the sections of people in Nag land and(less)
