Abstract
Every human society has an identical behavior pattern, which is in sociological term, known as culture. According to Ralph Linton, “The culture of a society is the way of life of its member: the collection of ideas and habits which they learn, share, and transmit from generation to generation.”1 It is the living pattern of group of human, belong to a particular society, which determined how the members of the society behave, thinks and direct their action. Therefore, Clyde Kluckhohn termed culture as “design for living”.2 So without culture,no human society can exist. Hence, it is found that culture and society, both are inter related, inter dependent subject. In this context, the term „socio-cultural life‟ means the cultural life that has been furnished under a
given social context. Neither culture nor society could exist without the each other. A culture represents the common behavior and practice of a particular group, while society represents the people who share all these. It is society, that shapes and upholds the cultural life of a particular group, and on the other hand, culture represents the distinctness of a society. So culture and society both are integrated and it is not possible to part one from the other. Without society, there is no culture and without culture, society has no identity. Every community has its own culture and this has been reflected through the social composition, custom, beliefs, feast and festivals,etc. In this context, it is important to know the society and its composition or structure to understand its cultural life. The social structure or division, economic condition, religion, social environment have influenced and shaped the distinctive cultural life of a particular social group. Therefore, culture differentiates one group or society from the next. The „East Bengal origin Assamese Muslims‟ the title have been categorized as a distinct socio-religious group of Assam. From religious point of view, they are follower of Islam, belong to Sunnisect, and by „mozhab‟ belong to „Hanifi mozhab’. In case of Assam, they are part of the Assamese Muslim of Assam, but from socio cultural point of view, they are representing a vertical division of Assamese Muslim. The sociocultural variations of these Muslims like language, tradition, beliefs, custom, socioeconomic backgrounds all have many point of difference with the later. So obviously these Muslims have incorporated a new variety in the composite Assamese identity and enriched the diversified nature of it. At the same time, the distinction has given a selfidentity to them and designated them as an identical group in the line of other racial or ethnic groups

Key words: Assamese, Muslim, East Bengal, Socio-Economic, Culture, Life
