Artisans and Craftsmen of Northern India

Kuldeep Singh Thind (Author) Reconstructing Indian History & Culture
Synopsis The basic aim of the book is to expose the major contributions of artisans and craftsmen in portraying the society in different perspectives. These highly talented workers of India - this volume focuses on the northern half - played a key role in the evolution of life between the seventh and twelfth centuries CE.

The artisans such as potters, weavers, carpenters, architects, sculptors, brick-makers, metallurgy and metal workers, leather workers, painters, and the workers engaged in the various professions were the heroes of that time, who not only met the day-to-day requirements of the then society, but also portrayed different aspects of their life, in its true colour, through their workmanship. Unfortunately, there was no proper institutionalized provision for the education of artisans and craftsmen, so generally the former adopted the occupation of their parents, and hereditary skill was enhanced as it was transferred from father to son, and generation to generation.

This book, providing valuable insights exhaustively, is designed to create interest among the readers and scholars alike to understand the society of the period under reference through the immortal art of these creative people, and to pay rich tributes to the creators of our rich cultural heritage.
