This is an index to personal name sin the Indian history from the earliest to 1947 based on the eleven volumes of The History and Culture of the Indian People published by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mumbai, 1953-77 (includes second edition of vol. 2). There are a number of biographical dictionaries containing personal names from the Indian history, but these are good only for people who are well known.

Introduction

This is an index to personal names in the Indian history from the earliest to 1947 based on the eleven volumes of The History and Culture of the Indian People published by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mumbai in 1953-77(includes second edition of vol.II). The contents of the series are as follows:

Vol. I. The Vedic Age (up to 600 BC)

Vol. II The Age of Imperial Unity (600 BC-AD 320)

Vol. III The Classical Age (AD 320-750)

Vol. IV The Age of Imperial Kanauj (AD 750-1000)

Vol. V The Struggle for Empire (AD 750-1000)

Vol. VI The Delhi Sultanate (AD 1300- 1526)

Vol. VII The Mughal Empire (AD 1526- 1707)

Vol. VIII The Maratha Supremacy (AD 1707-1818)

Vol. IX British Paramountcy Indian and Renaissance, pt.I (AD 1818 -1905)

Vol. X. British Paramountcy and Indian and Renaissance, Pt. II (AD 1818- 1905)

Vol. XI Struggle for Freedom (AD 1905- 1947)

There are a number of biographical dictionaries containing personal names from the Indian history, but these are good only for people. This is an inclusive work describing briefly every person who is well known. There is hardly any work that includes less know people who appeared in that set in any capacity, his dates when possible followed by the volume and the page number where that name appeared, thereby making this Directory useful for research scholars and casual students of Indian history, alike. The contents of the volumes may help to place the person in a proper chronological perspective if his dates are not available.

Every effort has been made to give the names exactly the way they appear in the set, so one may find a similar name written in more than one ways or one with a diacritic and the other without one. These names have been linked with 'see' and 'see' also reference.' A few abbreviations, such as EIC for East India Company, INC for Indian National Congress, ADC for Aide-de- camp, INA for Indian National Army and CPI for Communist Party of India, have been used.I thank University of Toronto for granting me a year of sabbatical leave to collect the information for this Directory.

I am also thankful to Manish khera, Jerome Kudera, Cheryl Cosento and Abhishek Prakash for helping me to set up my computer and the software I used to produce this Directory. I am thankful to Prof. Narendra Wagle, Director, South Asia Program, University of Toronto, for many useful suggestions. I am also thankful to Larry Langford of Robarts Library, University to Toronto for her assistance.

I am also grateful to my wife, Kiran, my daughter Mala and her husband, Andrew, my son, Manish and his wife, Rekha, for being very supportive while I was working on this project.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom
