Studies in Indian History
Studies in Indian History
Description
From the Jacket

The present work throws light on some of the intriguing problems of the history and culture of India which have not received proper attention of Indologists so far. They deal with political and cultural life of the people belonging to different periods of our history.

Some of the chapters dealing with the origin and historicity of Bodhgaya, cultural contacts between Bengal and Mithila; the Ganga and Indian culture: the Ramayana of Valmiki and the Jaina Puranas; The panji-Prabandha and its impact on the socio-cultural life in North-eastern India; Religion and culture: a study in Hindu Ethics; Art of Bihar from the earliest times to the Mauryan age; Folk-dance: a study in rural art; Source of gold for the early gold coins of India etc. throws altogether a new light on the problems connected with these topics and clear off the confusion created by earlier writers.

A thoroughly original and documented work of inestimable interest both for the specialist and the common reader, this volume will prove of immense help to students of Indian history and culture.

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.
