It is proposed to do some in depth research work into this chronological activity so that we can get a proper perspective to our history.

    It is only in this country that all the cultures, be it indigenous or otherwise are thriving in close comradiary and mutual co-operation and interacting with each other to being about a growth in the collective psyche of the nation. A serious study diverse culture springing forth from the same source will be taken up.

    Even though it is common knowledge that the place names and the local traditions in our country has a strong historical background, no systematic study has been taken up so far. We propose to take up such a study in the near future

    It is a fact that the games played by the children and adults particularly the women folk of India are the same all over the country. An attempt has to be made to record them to show the world how; from time immemorial this country has been one, even in its day-to-day activities.
