The territory of the Tibeto-Burman languages is by and large conter­ minous with the Himalayas and extends from Baltistan and Ladakh in Jammu and Kashmir to Arunachal Pradesh. It extends further to en­ compass other northeastern states. The Bhotia and the Himalayan groups of the Tibeto-Burman family are confined to Jammu and Kash­ mir, Himachal Pradesh, hilly Uttar Pradesh and Sikkim. The Tibetan speakers, however, have a wider spread as they are distributed over many states in India. The Tibetans are of course in exile in India and live in camps and colonies especially created for them in several states. Notable among the languages of the North Assam branch of the Tibeto-Burman family are Miri/Mishing and Adi.
Hi Abhijit, thank you.
Indeed i wrote the same, just wanted an assurance (hehehe) as 8775 engendered 8776 have different meanings dictionary-wise this makes the topic itself very confusing and tough, at least i find the same.
I didn 8767 t find a single person around me who attempted this one. (Not to say that only i understood it 8767 s meaning lol)

In spite of all the above poverty alleviation programs poverty continues to remain among Indian masses. Something more drastic should be done to remove poverty from India.
One way to begin to address this problem is with infrastructure investments. The country as a whole has great infrastructure needs (ASCE 7568), and the needs are even greater in Indian Country (National Congress of American Indians 7557). Infrastructure investments can create millions of jobs (for example, see Pollack 7566). Today, the costs of these projects are relatively low (Pollack 7567). Wisely done programs can also target some job creation to high-unemployment American Indian communities (Austin 7566).
8775 Womenomics, 8776 as the policy of employing more women has come to be called, requires the provision of more day care centers, but the provision of facilities will not solve the problem posed by the adherence of mothers-in-law in Japan to the concept that looking after one 8767 s own children is the sine qua non of motherhood.
There will be howls of protest if Abe does these kinds of things. But drastic, radical measures are needed. Does he understand this? Does he have the backbone to buck centuries of established cultural norms? Perhaps he should consult with his wife about what is needed?!?
It may be assumed that as tribal/non-tribal interaction was growing, a section of the tribal population shifted to other dialects/ languages with which it has no traditional affinity. This shift to the dominant languages of the regions of their habitation indicated a process of language shift and assimilation into the regional languages. The language shift was, however, not necessarily from a tribal to a non-tribal dialect. In fact, several tribal groups shifted over to the other tribal dialects as contacts between them were growing fast.
I cannot help wondering whether acceding to this pressure has not led to false shaming of teachers by those who ascribe to some imagined deviation in their lifestyle what I think is like sending the into battle from a safe armchair. Condoms are not 655% effective as contraception. So they only protect a statistical majority from HIV, penicillin-resistant gonorrhea, etc. Better to teach abstinence outside marriage and periodic abstinence for spacing births than to give false confidence to dangerous promiscuity, if you really want to help all the students.
Their stay in cities and towns, on the other hand, diluted their cultural identity and their language was the first casualty. Investigations at the household level confirmed the language shift among the Mundas of Ranchi town and the Korkus of Khandwa tehsil, East Nimar district. On the contrary, the Bhils of Banswara district, the Santals of Santal Parganas, the Korkus of Khalwa tehsil (East Nimar district) and the Mundas of the rural parts of Ranchi district have continued to retain their language.
These studies revealed that the Santals and Korkus by and large preferred to retain their traditional dialect. 8767 On the other hand, there were other Austric-speaking tribes who displayed a ten­ dency of shift to the regional languages. The language shift was the highest among the Savaras. The Kharias, Mundas and the Hos fol­ lowed.
Yet the world may be more complex now. To learn adequate Japanese skills merely for nursing work is no longer easy at the job, let alone on the test papers. No Florence Nightingale can today take off for Crimea without language skills. The more complex the job, the great the learning task. It is said foreign doctors abound in the USA, but English skills are much easier to come by than Japanese ones.
Is it a hope of controlling the future that leads to believing an adjustment toward virtue (eschewing chauvinism, male-ist or Japan-centric) is the solution? What if the birth-rate here DID pick up suddenly? Where are the OB-GYN beds/doctors/midwives? What about the world population crunch, which is just about as Malthus feared, geometrically accelerating?
You 8767 re focusing solely on a tree, not on the entire forest. In Europe, lots of cars and facility are set ablaze (as usual). Hate speech is banned but still chanted overtly in political movements involving even political leaders. People kill or get killed, injured no joke or metaphor. An increasing number of threat calls or messages to Muslim people are right now underway after the Paris attacks. There are so many hate-related crimes in varying magnitudes that it is not worth introducing them all here as counter-evidence.
