Meghalaya is the only state in Indian sub continent where men fight for 33% and husbands are asked to move in with their in-laws after marriage. the only state where there are no illegitimate child, since the babies have maternal surnames. Women experience full freedom and independence in all aspects. They are successful in career. The indigenous tribe, celebrate women by portraying them as the plinth of the society. But that does not refrain them from raising and nurturing their family.
