Product Description

The Book attempts to capture the various significance of the rites of passage and their practices found in the Meche people of Nepal from theoretical and anthropological point of view, it gives first-hand information on certain major rituals, and includes underlying changes it has undergone over the periods and reasons for these changes. The author argues that cultural embeddedness of the Meche society has considerably weakened. The Meche society offers a comprehensive understanding of one of the endangered ethnic groups of Nepal and has to be essential learning for anyone burning with curiosity about these fascinating people's rites of passage, village economy, history, and religious activities that shaped the cross-cultural landscape production of the Jhapa district in Nepal.
