STUDIES IN THE KATHASARITSAGARA
STUDIES IN THE KATHASARITSAGARA
Description
About the Book :

The Kathasaritsagara has been classed with the tow great epics of India by world-renowned indologists and sanskritists. Since the Kathasaritsagara, a text of the 11th c. AD, is based on the Brhatkatha, a work of the 1st c. AD, there was a problem regarding the period of the Indian society depicted in it. The author has proved that the Kathasaritsagara depicts the society of early medieval India, that is, the post-Gupta and pre-Muslim period of Indian history. A rich field for the study of the socio-cultural history of India, the Kathasaritsagara has been thoroughly explored by the author.
