In the past, feuds and conflicts were a part of life. Every village, conglomeration of villages, and tribes had to defend themselves against raids and invasions by others, or went themselves on the advance to subjugate others. The environmental surroundings, too, were full of dangers with wild animals like tigers and bears roving in the jungle. For protection, as well as warfare, weapons were tools no village could do without.
