mothers there carry their children in this manner. doctors argue that this way is bad for the child as he may develop neck-stiffness when he grows up. but no instance as such has been found so far.
meghalaya is a matrilineal society where mothers had to take care of their children as well as manage for the livelihood of the family, generally. men are...well, anybody's guess. an ideal society for me.
