DescriptionZomi Life and Culture.
When I was in Switzerland, my professor took a picture of us three students with a world map pointing to our respective place where we came from. Representing three nationalities one came from Africa, one from Europe and I from Asia. Looking at the photo, I am reminded of three broad nationalities in the world basically black, yellow and white. I came to the conclusion that I, representing Asia, belong to the yellow race of the tri-color nationalities. Anthropologists put a great deal of investigations on the origin, social, culture and religious activities of different races in different countries. It is possible to say that human beings have come from the same origin with the same basic cultures. The developed and underdeveloped countries have the same cultural heritage: housing, food, and behavior. The difference is in time when they depart from the primitive way of life. Some left it many years ago, some recently and some in the process of leaving it.
The Zomis too share many of cultural heritage with other nations, especially with Asian nations. They share the same heritage in appearance, color, food, clothing, and behavior with other Asian races like Chinese, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Koreans, Japanese and Thais. Language develops and changes according to the environment and language barrier becomes the main obstacle among these yellow color races. In spite of this, the common heritage present in the culture will be discovered as we go on dealing with the life, religion, and culture of the Zomi in this paper. I have divided this paper into three Sections: Section One is about the origin of the Zomi, Section Two on Social Cultural Structure, Section Three on World View. I have divided each Section into sub-sections and headings.
