It must, however, be noted that although the political boundaries of the country have changed from age to age. The unbroken unity of its history is the result of the geographical unity of the area of the Brahmaputra Valley which is the heart of Assam.

The original home of these speakers was in north-west China near the Yang- tse-kiang and the Hwang-ho rivers. From there some of them went to the south and occupied first the Garo Hills and the state of Hill Tippera.
Others appear to have ascended the valley of the Kapili and the neighbouring streams into the hilly country of North Cachar, but the mountainous tract between it and the Garo Hills now known as the Khasi and Jaintia Hills, they failed to occupy, and it ever remained a home of the Mon-Khmer speaking people.

The Bodos built strong kingdoms and with various fortunes and under various tribal names—the Chutiyii, the Kachari, the Koc, etc. During the course of centuries the Bodos suffered much from external pressure.

The primary focus of SBCC is to bring about an improvement in the quality of the lives of people by assisting them in the adoption of safe and optimal behaviors.
However, the barrier analysis revealed that uptake of government services related to health and education was affected by supply side challenges such as the attitudinal practices of government FLWs who may themselves have discriminated against members of marginalized communities.
Additionally, they were often overburdened and unable to give adequate gull to counsel and build a rapport with all community members. There were also many demand side challenges which hindered community members from accessing services or practicing positive behaviors, such as a lack of complete information and knowledge, inability to dedicate time to cover the physical distance to reach services, and limited monetary resources to pay for certain services, the cost for which would be reimbursed later.
However, at times, even when community members were aware of the benefits of certain behaviors, they did not practice them for many reasons, prominent among which were social norms, prevalence of some traditional norms for example, in some communities, colostrum is offered to the local deity to pray for the long life of the childand social exclusion of marginalized communities as described earlier.
Economic constraints also had a significant adverse effect on behavior change. Mothers may have been aware of the positive aspects of institutional delivery but instead chose to xultural at home because they perceived a greater opportunity cost and loss of wage days in delivering at a hospital.
Moreover, even though the government provided an incentive that they were entitled to after institutional delivery, their economic condition limited their ability to spend for travel and other incidentals before the delivery. The scoping study conducted in 10 states of India among 35 SC and ST communities brought out nuanced findings that went aseam prevalent notions and in some cases, and misconceptions about indigenous communication in development practice and theory.
The study highlighted that there was a strong social cohesion among marginalized nistory. Even as they adapted to the mainstream official languages used in their respective states, most of these communities full text of cultural history of assam vol to communicate in their own dialects.

To a certain extent, only NGOs were observed to use such forms to disseminate social messages in some areas. In a deviation from the mainstream notion of thriving indigenous communication used in these areas, the study highlighted full text of cultural history of assam vol while there are unique traditional art and dance forms Jhumur dance among youth living and working in tea plantations, Raas and Bihu among other indigenous communities of Assam, Santhali dance among Santhals, Jhumur among Lohras and a wide collection of songs that are specific to these communities like the Birha folk song form from Asszm Pradesh and Oinitom songs of the Missing tribe in Assamthese were not used for information exchange related to government services and schemes.
In essence, these are religious, cultural, and recreational forms only and with great potential to bring these communities together in times of celebration and leisure. For example, the Birha folk song form which is not specific to any particular community in the eastern part of Uttar Full text of cultural history of assam vol but has its origin in the region was very popular among communities studied in that state.
