Panorama of Gems & Jewellery in Indian Historical Setting

M.S. Shukla (Author)
Synopsis The book portrays the profile of Gems and Jewellery in the Indian Historical perspective. It dabbles in sources and geographical distribution of gems, physical and chemical properties theirof and their working, occult and religious association and treatment of Jewels for Jewellery. It is a bid, a venture to trace the career of gems from their matrix to Jewellery-forms and to retrieve them from dim recesses of time, distant interiors and dark corridors of centuries. The present work also broaches the nature and extent of their viability in relation to social environment, ethos and values of civilizational entities. It is a corollary to the author’s monograph entitled, A history of Gem Industry in Ancient and Medieval India, (Part I, South India), Published earlier.

M.S. Shukla

Dr. M.S. Shukla, presently Reader, Department of A.I.H.C. and Archaeology, B.H.U., is a keen and dedicated researcher on art history of India in particular relation to its contemporary, kindred and parallel developments beyond. He has taken up the dynamics of the whole Asian art history in his interpretation of Indian art history. He has worked out the saga of art at International level in his research to explain the nodal developments as well as regional stories. This is a continuing focus of his write-up under publication i.e. ‘Pageant of Asian and Indian Art’ and ‘Studies in Indian Architecture, Art and Aesthetics’. An alumuni of B.H.U. with a meritorious academic record, Dr. Shukla has been a teacher there and also at Allahabad University. He has been principally associated with the teaching of south Indian History and India’s cultural contact in Asia. Both the subjects have shared his interest and range of enquiry. His researches have been focusing upon them. Besides papers on the latter area, Dr. Shukla’s publication comprises researches on economic aspects of South India e.g. gem Industry. Dr. Shukla has also carried and pursued studies on Indian epigraphy and has two monographs published in Hindi on this area.
