About the Book :
This work is devoted to the detailed and critical study of the costume, coiffure and ornament that were prevalent among the people of North-Eastern India from c. 325 BC to c. 1200 AD. Costume, coiffure and ornament form a constituent element of human culture. They are excellent embodiments of individual as well as racial self-expression. They also explain aesthetic qualities, love for beauty and refinement, and the influence-internal and external-bearing on the material life of the people. Written with a facile pen in simple yet lucid style, its narration of the three different aspects of adornment and beautification leaves an indelible impression. It covers a long period and records in clear and unequivocal terms all trends and tendencies in fashion and styles. It is of abiding value and bears sufficient proof of the author's indefatigable zeal and seasoned research discipline.
