N. Jayapalan (Author)
Synopsis This book delves deeply into the major cultural streams that made an impact on India during the ancient and modern times. The cultural spheres created by Harappans, Aryans, Jainism, Buddhism, early Christianity, Islamic invaders and the West have been discussed with amazing finesse. The resultant culture of the Indian subcontinent was an amalgamation of these vital cultural components. India’s contribution to world culture has been discussed with reference to Buddhism and India’s cultural impact on the European culture. The stalwarts of social reform movements made their contributions during the second half of the nineteenth century. Their biographies and key activities have been discussed, which proved to be decisive while shaping the cultural edifice of India. The fag end of the volume deals with the impact of the British rule on Indian economy. The chapter devoted to this topic delineates how agriculture was commercialized and handicraft industries were systematically demolished by foreign rulers. The growth of modern industrial and capitalist class paved the way for a new culture that defied the British rule and supported the independence movement. The last few pages of the book discuss various facets of Indianisation of architecture, painting, music and dance forms. The author has discussed each topic with an excellent style that has been supported by facts. The resultant culture of the Indian subcontinent was an amalgamation of all these cultural components.
