Brahmi Inscriptions of Northern India

Anamika Roy (Author)
Synopsis The book projects some very significant aspects of Brahmi inscriptions of northern India from circa Ist. Century A.D. to circa 300 A.D. throwing light on Social life, Economic life, Polity and Administration, Religion, and Palaeography. It brings out in clear terms that the inscriptions are unfailing guides for the reconstruction of history of the period under review. It has been shown that the so-called ambiguities or discrepancies in these records are largely due to the imported words, which are often mixed up with the indigenous terms. They reveal that this was a period of extreme confusion associated with the inroads of foreign tribes, which, however could not alter the basic structure of the Hindu society. The core of the age-old tradition continued without any serious damage or marked conflict. The hereditary functions of any group or caste did not tend towards rigidity. Illustrations of the original letter forms, restoration of the missing letters and photographs of the related inscriptions have added to the portrayal of the intended conclusion in the portrayal of the intended conclusion in a balanced manner. The appended bibliography is comprehensive and informative vouching the wide range of study in planning the make-up of the extant work.
