In Sanskrit, the term Naga means naked, or 'sky-clad'. These tribes have been living in 'Nagaland'. The people and their country were named as such - how else should it have been - by British colonialists. As one can easily see, China is not so very far from there:
Reminding me of the term for 'Injuns', in olden days often referred to as 'Savages', or sometimes 'Noble Savages' by more inclined folks.

India’s Period Problem - India Real Time - WSJ

Don’t enter the kitchen. Don’t touch the pickles. Don’t bake cakes. Don’t come in contact with men. Don’t swim. Don’t wash your hair. Don’t go into a  wine cellar. These are some of the strictures still in place for women during their monthly period in parts of India, where old wives’ tales about women’s impurity during menstruation persist.

In India, most of the taboos stem from a time before sanitary pads, when women were made to stay in a hut outside the village during their period, kept from daily duties and not allowed in the kitchen. Women in some areas are prohibited from going to the temple during their monthly period. (...)

Diwali is celebrated in the UK too in many areas, by both Indian and non-Indian.It probably has more cultural significance (but not commercial!) the Easter in those areas.
