Description
About the Book

Notwithstanding the prolificity of indepth researches in contemporary historiography, Professor Subramanian's book is the first concentrative effort to track down the social history of the Tamils.

Today, the Tamils, over fifty million of them, live in the South-eastern state of the Indian peninsula: Tamil Nadu- which indisputably represents the very nucleus of millennia-old Dravidian culture in India.

The book offers a compelling account of the Tamil's society, economy, religious beliefs, educational mechanism, arts and cultural expressions during the years 1707-1947- when, significantly, the British domination blossomed, bloomed, and faded; when new thoughts, new ideas, and new ways of life came as irresistibly into the homeland of the Tamils as into the Indian subcontinent. Thus retracing over two centuries of the British connection with India. The author here tries to show how the long colonial rule in India exposed the tradition-bound Tamilian society to Western influences- with results that proved incalculable in both their range and depth.

Social History of the Tamil: 1707-1947 is the outcome of Professor Subramanian's decade-long, painstaking research authenticated by an astonishing mass of evidence including archival records, Jesuit sources, Modi manuscripts, newspapers reports, biographies, travelogues, literary writings, and even fictional works,

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
