Meghalaya the abode of the cloud is the place with the highest rainfall in the world. The state also hosts Mawlynnong, the cleanest village of Asia. Unlike many Indian states, Meghalaya has historically followed a matrilineal system where the lineage and inheritance are traced through women; the youngest daughter (Khaduh) inherits all wealth and she also takes care of her parents.
Children take their mother’s last name and men move into his wife’s home after marriage. Moreover, the Khasi language originally had no script of its own. The Khasi language is one of the very few surviving Mon–Khmer languages in India today.
