Having had spent most of my childhood in Shillong, I have had the experience of interacting with the local tribals Khasis and Jaintiyas a lot. There the society is matrilineal. A child is identified by the mother's name. Here the local Khasi and Jaintia tribesmen value their daughters who inherit all their ancestral property. Much of the property goes to the Ka Khadduh - the youngest daughter - who becomes the centre of attraction. In Meghalaya, women run family businesses, dominate the households and take all key family decisions. In Meghalaya, the sons get nothing.
There is no scope for dowry here in their society.


is is news 2 me..but only if all the world had this as its custom or rule-

but thanks 4 the info...
