Description
Introduction
In the past, the people of India did not give enough importance to leave written records of their glorious achievements. Therefore, to reconstruct the lost history all possible steps have to be taken to collect as many sources as literary, epigraphic, archaeological and other archival materials. The inscriptions are considered as the main and important source for writing the Indian history especially of the ancient and medieval periods. The authors of most of the inscriptions are the kings / chieftains or the admirers of their rulers. In many cases these inscriptions contain much glorification of their masters. The kadatas found in Karnataka in the scripts of Kannada, Devanagari and Tigalari give abundant information about the rulers.

During the period of Muslim rulers the available stone inscriptions and copper-plates are very few in number. In their place, the Muslim rulers used sannad, hukumnama, firman, bakhairu, etc. to proclaim their orders. Though they are preferable to literary and other information one must be careful about their authenticity for there may be spurious and forged documents. These records also supplement the source of information for writing the history.

In the ancient Indian literature via: The Ramayana, the Mahabharata, and Bhagavata there are instances of heroes visiting holy places, sacred rivers, venerable hermitages, and the authors of these works have given their vivid description. The tirthayatras of Balarama and Vidura in the Bhagavata are well known. Kalidasa (c. 400) in his Meghaduta narrates many places, rivers, hills, mountains and valleys. The caritas in Sanskrit literature give some useful information about the history of our land. Dasakumaracarita (c. 400 A.D.) of Dandin is an imaginary romance reflecting many social and economic conditions of the period. Bana, the court poet of the king Harsavardhana (c. 700 A.D.) in his work Harsacarita deals with the early life of Harsa and throws much light on the social, economic and political conditions prevailing in the first half of the 7th century. But most of these caritas eulogize the kings. Therefore, the historians cannot rely on them for the relevant information. In the later works like Kalhana's Rajatarangini (1150 A.D.), a chronicle of 3500 verses, in addition to its literary value, a lot of information about the history, geography, politics, society, etc., is available. Venkatadhvari (17th A.D.) in his Visvagunaadarsa has given a lively description of the travel by gandharvas. But such works are very few in number.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
