ABSTRACT:
Meghalaya recently has been adding significantly to its aged population. The distinctive aspect of this largely tribal society is its continuation of a social order, which is matrilineal. The women enjoy a much higher social status particularly based on a system of inheritance along female line and matri-local marriage institution. It may therefore be exceedingly interesting to examine the issue of the aged section and care of the aged in such a society that distinguishes itself from the rest not only in North-East but also from rest of the country.
KEYWORDS:
Tribal, matrilineal, inheritance, social order.
