Overview for Cultural Movements in Modern India (In 2 Volumes)
India has a rich and vast history, which has given the country a prominent place among the nations of the world. Its vibrant and varied culture, customs and traditions, world renewed monuments, has enriched the lives of the people dwelling in it. For better understanding it has been divided in to three era, namely ancient history, medieval history and modern history. The proletarian revolution presupposes practice and propagation of proletarian culture and values among its other essential prerequisites. But proletarian culture can grow and develop only by exhausting the ethics, morals and tastes of the bourgeois humanist culture, in continuity and break with it. Dwelling on some fundamental theoretical questions in the realm of culture in this era, this address deals with the trends of the renaissance movement in India, particularly with regard to the renaissance in Bengal. The authors examine the major political, economic, social and cultural forces which have shaped the history of the subcontinent. Providing an authoritative and detailed account, authors emphasise and analyse the structural pattern of Indian history of that time.
