ABSTRACT

Present study has been undertaken by the investigator among the Scheduled Tribe students of Nalbari district in the state of Assam to identify their different types of superstitious behaviour.  Two null hypotheses have been formulated in the present paper – firstly, there is no significant difference between Male and Female ST Students towards superstitious beliefs and secondly, there is no significant difference between graduate and Post- Graduate students towards superstitious beliefs. Total 80 students sample has been selected for testing the hypotheses. No significant difference between Male and Female towards superstitious beliefs was found and in case of 2nd hypothesis also no significant difference between graduate and Post- Graduate students towards superstitious beliefs was observed. Further, in the present paper, the investigator has tried to draw attention of all kinds of educated people towards the harmful effects of superstitions in the society and put forward suggestions to make a society free from social evils due to superstition in India.
