This study gains a better understanding of a critical research problem. It typically focuses on a single topic through a multidisciplinary approach. The case study compares that demonstrates relationships between two or more subjects. A case study refers to both a method of analysis and a specific research method for exploring an issue in the social sciences.

Kirat is historically a descriptive tribe composed of several clans. Limbu (Yakthung) is a Kirat member, which has around 300 clans. Samba is one of the Kirat Limbu clans, with over a half-dozen sub-clans. Phyang is a member of the Samba family that has lived in Nepal, India, Bhutan, and the United Kingdom. In 2019, a study has been conducted on 207 households of Kirat Limbu Samba Phyang families in the four nations stated above. The study looked at Kirat Limbu and focussed Samba Phyang into their behavior and development with anthropological perspective. In Nepal, India, Bhutan, and United Kingdom, a coordinator gathered information from each cluster.The study used purposive cluster sampling to collect data. An enumerator from the group was assigned to each cluster to collect data according to the checklist. Family information was gathered from all communities, including manuscripts and mundhum, by the researcher. The researcher completed the analysis by categorizing the data. The researcher reviewed the secondary data and analyzed it along with the primary data. The researcher carried out thematic content scrutiny with the conclusions. The Kirat Limbu people's genealogy limits to the Limbu origin. The research covered the required areas. The researcher took genealogy, history, and archeology into the research. The available Samba genealogy is hazy in and of itself. Also, the histories of Nepal have kept them apart. They start talking after naming Samba. They have been almost to the limit, silent on earlier ancestors. The genealogical study of Samba Phyang spread across Nepal, India, Bhutan, and UK has done something in this context. The Samba dynasty's cultural aspects, including familial data, were explored. The study examined their cultural data, including inheritance history. The study found they worshiped Tungdunge wherever they lived to remember their ancestors. Kirat literature, mundhum, manuscripts, and genealogies provided imperative information about the Tungdunge and the history of Samba Phyang. According to the information gathered throughout the study, Senehang of the Sen dynasty became Rai, Limbu, Samba, and Phyang after arriving in Kirat-Limbu states. Samba's predecessor, the most youthful ruler of the Sen regime, Tungdunge, arrived at Mewa Khola (river) in the 17th century and favored Samba. The socio-biological theory has provided support for the mundhum legend. In the 18th century, the fifth era of the Phyang segment the Samba house spread from Mewa Khola to Sankhuwasabha, Atharai Hangpang, and Panchthar in the wake of the Gorkha-Limbu War and the Treaty of Saltwater. They have later moved throughout Nepal, including Sunsari, Morang, Jhapa, and Lalitpur. They are now present in India, Bhutan, the United Kingdom, and other countries.

This book is a Samba Phyang genealogy study combined with an anthropological examination of Kirat Limbu's behavior and development. The Kirat Study has taken a novel approach. This research will be helpful in the study of the Kirat Limbu community around the world.
