Bengali peasants made large tracts of waste, flooded and forested land habitable and productive along the southern bank of the Brahmaputra River, an area that is also populated by indigenous tribal groups, especially the Lalung. This has helped increase both domestic and foreign tourism into the State (see Table 1) and associated spending while in Orissa (see Table 2) (Government of Orissa, 2002). What’s more interesting is that throughout the hunter-gatherer mode of subsistence, and even later until well into the historical times (i.e., for the entire part where the height of the curve is practically zero), the religious beliefs of people had nothing to do with God; they were beliefs based on ancestor souls, ghosts, good and bad spirits that inhabit the woods, the lake, the sea, or other unknown, dangerous, and scary places, and so on — just the sort of beliefs that the few remaining hunter-gatherers hold today (they will be discussed a bit more, soon).

Shamanism is an indigenous Siberian mystic tradition, Wicca is a religion based on ancient European traditions, Tarot readings are an Indo-European divination method, and the New Age is a syncretic belief system invented, as its name suggests, in the modern era. He theorizes that participation in these corporate activities increases commitment to one’s faith on the individual level. Our picture of racial and ethnic disparities in the health of older Americans is strongly influenced by the methods of collecting data on race and ethnicity.

This "neo-orthodox" worldview is consistent with any number of conflicting positions on foreign policy. Even before the rise of organized religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam in the West and Buddhism & Hinduism in the East, with their widely recognized symbols of religious faith and devotion, tattoos often clearly were intended to serve a purpose beyond simple expressions of decoration and identification. Burial should take place in the most sober and dignified manner and the resources should be saved for the survivors rather than wasting them on an exorbitant burial.

Gold pendants adorned sacrificial buffalo, one being in the form of a stylized buffalo mask with plant motif at the back. The lower strands use goldish coloured short, irregular "straw beads" as dividers. The tubular beads, although probably made in Europe are described as "Chinese straw beads" as I suppose they are rather like hollow straws - with delicate glass walls instead of paper.

Wherever such non-negotiable needs are not met, conflict is inevitable. Further marginalization of small and ladles peasants forced them into militancy for bare survival.23 By contrast, the situation in Kashmir, Assam, and the North-East has been one of economic neglect and discrimination in the perception of the affected masses.
