  Abstract

The lifestyle of the North-Eastern rural population demonstrates the example of sustainable living where bamboo plays a major role. Bamboo has its home in this tropical climatic region of India. In order to understand various aspects of Traditional bamboo constructions, a field visit was made to Assam & Mizoram.
