Rai Bahadur Srisa Chandra Vasu (Translator)
Synopsis The Puranas are very beneficial for the Indian Society since their inception. These are like the ocean and comprise valuable gems. If you have a wider vision to see their importance and have research acumen, you will secret find valuable material such as historical, social, intellectual old episodes about India and its people.

All the Puranas are full of worship of the gods and goddesses who teach incantions to diminish, the demonish powers who are enemies of good society. We have a large member of demons, Daityas and Asuras viz. Madhu-Kaitabh, Hiranyaksh Hiranyakshipu (father of Prahlada) Ravana, Kumbha Karna and Meghnada, Tarakasura, Mahishasura, Chanda Munda there are shumbha and Nishumbha and others were killed either by Visnu, Siva and Goddess Durga respectively. Gods have promised to protect Dharma, society and good people – wherever they are in trouble due to Asuras:

The Matsyamahapurana is one of the oldest and considered as the original Purana. Here are four Puranas viz Matsya Purana, Visnu Purana, Vayu Purana and Brahmanda Puranas, these are historically important and are valuable for social history of the  country. The Matsya Purana was composed according to Modern scholars in the early centuries of Christian era. It comprises 14000 verses and divided injto 291 chapters. It tells us the story of Matsyavatara and Manu. The Manu with the help of this Matsya saved the seeds of all the vegetables and food crops, all the Vedas and the schciptures alongwith saptarshis from Pralaya period. He started creating new creations of human beings. The person who started cultivation in India. In this way this Purana gives us the full story of creation of the world including mountains, rivers, human beings, creatures and what not the Matsya Purana contains (Teachers) Raja-dharman (Politics) in many chapters. It is very important and discusses the role of a king in the preservation of the country, people, property etc. The King should be told enough to control and crush the enemies of the country and of the society. He should protect and nourish the good people and Dharma and the land of the country. In those days the king was the all in all in Administration. The enemies of the king also tried to harm him so that he may became the rulers. It gives a very good description of the administration and defence of the country internally and externally.

After this there is a mention of civil and defence officially personally who helped the king in the civil, administrative, legal and for the defence of the country. We find the rules and qualification of good officials, their rights, duties and privileges also. It was a team work in harmony to run the govt.
