QUANTIFICATION OF THE EFFECT OF ALCOHOL IN THE STATE OF MIZORAM USING SOCIAL COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS
Mizoram is the 23rd State of India, which lies in the remote north-east corner of India. The people of Mizoram are called Mizo and speak the Mizo language. Aizawl is the capital of Mizoram and Christianity is the religion followed by about 87% of the population of the State. Christianity of the Mizos was the influence of the British Missionaries when they landed in Mizoram in the 19th century when they came to rule over India.
Before the introduction of Christianity among the Mizos in 1894, there was no counter action against drinking alcohol but rather played important roles and was part and parcel in almost all religious sacrifices and ceremonies (Joy & William, 2015).
