Paiks

The Ahoms are a tribe in the North eastern part of India. They migrated from Myanmar in the 13th century. The Ahom state depended upon forced labour. Those forced to work for the state were called paiks. A census of the population was taken. Each village had to send a number of paiks by rotation.
