these districts and collected information through questionnaire, along with it the observation played a
significant role by removing communication gaps- as these three districts consists of various tribes and
sub-tribes whose dialects are different, which are difficult to understand by the outsiders. In this case,
by observing the activities and resources available in the area researcher needs to collect all the relevant
information of the project.
