To identify the significance of the area built by Tibeto-Burma lanugage group people considering the area of Bangladesh,North-east India, Myanmar and Laos in one monsoon area on the periphery of the Bengal Bay
I have conducted the field work on Locally Existing Technologies” such as SOKSHING( Fallen Broad Leaf Forest) in Bhutan and Rice- Black Gram Cultivation in Myanmar. These consultations have not well been reported in the Academic Societies in Japan. Therefore the academic achievement can be significantly recognized.
