About the Author

This volume brings down the history of India to about 1200 A.D. when the whole of Northern India Practically fall before the Mohomedans. The fall of Hindu India began in the very beginning of the sub-period treated in this volume, as Kabul and the Punjab fell before mohmud from about 1000 to 1009 A.D.


By the grace of God this third voluma of the History of Madival Hindu India as I had projected it several years back is ready and I place it before the indulgent reader under the second name of 'The Downfall of Hindu India. Indeed the idea of writing this history was originally suggested to me by Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, as Medieval Hindu empire in its decline and fall struck me as greatly resembling the Roman empire. It fell before the Turks like the other and its fall closed with the taking of Kanauj on the Ganges as the latter's did with the storming of Constantinople on the Bosphorus. The Grecian capital became, moreover, the seat of the Turkish Mahomedan empire in Europe as Delhi became the seat of Turco-Afghan Mahomedan empire in India. The Greeks or Eastern Romans had declined in martial virtues and the same may be said of the Hindus generally, though the Rajputs, unlike the Greeks, even then maintained their high reputation for valour and love of independence and still main- tain their semi-independence in the sands and hills of Rajputana. Prithviraj and Jaichand strike us, unlike the last Grecian emperors, as redoubtable warriors who have immortalised their names in Indian history by their tragic but heroic end on the battlefield. Yet for various reasons, the generality of the people in Hindu India had become meek and accepted dependance without a tough national resistance.
