                        BRICKS, BEADS AND BONES
                         (The Harappan Civilisations)
Q1.        How can you say that the Harappan culture was an urban one.
Ans. The following examples show that the Harappan culture was an urban
      a)      The cities were well planned and thickly populated.
      b)      The road were straight and wide.
      c)      The houses were made of burnt bricks and contained more than
              one storey.
      d)      Every house had a well and a bathroom.
      e)      The drainage system was excellent with house drains emptying
              into street drains.
      f)      The citadel of Harappa had public buildings.
      g)      Lothal had a dockyard and was an important trading centre.
      h)      After the decline of the Harappan culture, town planning was
              forgotten and there was absence of city life for about a thousand
Q2.        “Our knowledge about the Indus Valley Civilization is poorer than
           that of the other Civilizations”. Explain it by your arguments?
Ans.i) The major reason behind our poorer knowledge about the Indus
           Valley Civilization than that of the other Civilizations is that the script
           of that age has hitherto not been deciphered. Hence, we have only
           know about the period and development of this Civilization on the
           basis of more speculation.
ii)        The easy method behind seeking knowledge about other Civilizations
           such as that of Egypt, Mesopatamia, China etc. was the deciphering of
           their scripts. Scripts is that sole basis through which we can gather
       through knowledge about the art, literature, customs, dresses, function
       and religion etc. of any Civilizations
Q3.    Discuss the functions that may have been performed by rulers in
       Harappan society
Ans. Some archaeologists are of the opinion that Harappan society had no
       rulers and that everybody enjoyed equal status. Others feel there was
       no single ruler but several that Mohenjodaro had a separate ruler,
       Harappa another and so forth yet others argue that there was a single
       state given the similarity in artefacts, the evidence for planned
       settlements the standardized ratio of brick size and the establishments
       of settlements near sources of raw material. As of now, the last theory
       seems the most plausible as it is unlikely that entire communities
       could have collectively made and implemented such complex
i)     There are indications of complex decisions being taken and
       implemented in Harappan society. Take for instance the extraordinary
       uniformity of Harappan artefacts as evident in pottery seals weights
       and bricks.
ii)    Notably bricks though obviously not produced in any single centre,
       were of a uniform ratio throughout the region, from Jammu to
       Gujarat. We have also seen that settlements were strategically set up
       in specific locations for various reasons.
iii)   Besides, labour was mobilised for making bricks and for the
       construction of massive walls and platforms.
       Who organized these activities ? I think the rulers might have
       performed all these works.
       Under the guidance and supervision of the rulers plans and layouts of
       the city were prepared. Big buildings palaces forts, tanks wells,
        canals, Granaries were constructed. Roads lanes and drains were also
        constructed and cleanliness was maintained under the over all
        supervision of the ruler.
        The ruler might have taken interest in economy of the state or city
        states. He use to inspire the farmer to increase agricultural production.
        He use to motivate the craftman to promote different handicrafts.
        Internal as well as external trade was promoted by the ruler. He use to
        issue common exceptable coins or seals, weights and measurements.
        During the natural calamity such as flood earthquake, epidemic etc.
        the ruler use to provide grains and other eatables to the affected
        people. He use to play active role to defend cities or state from foreign

Q4.   Discuss the evidence for craft production in early historic cities. In
      what ways is this different from the evidence from Harappan cities ?
Ans. Excavation have been conducted at a number of early historic cities.
      We have got several evidences for craft production in these cities.
      i)     People make bowls and dishes of every fine type of pottery
             with a glossy finish. These pottery is know as the northern
             black Polished ware (NBPW).
      ii)    The fine earthern pottery was probably used by rich people in
      iii)   In early cities ornaments, tools, weapons, vessels, figurines,
             made a wide range of materials such as gold, silver, copper,
             bronze, irory, glass, shell and terracotta.
      Differences :
      i)     Traces of houses and different structures have also been
             recovered in early historic cities. However they are unlike the
             Harappan cities.
      ii)    The Harappan did not know the used of iron. Therefore we can
             say they did not make different tools and implements of iron.
             On the other hand we get sufficient evidences that iron was
             used by the early historic cities people.
Q5.   Examine the sources of knowledge with us to know about India of the
      Maurya Age ?
Ans. 1.      Indica of Magasthenese : Indica is an important text by
      Magasthenese which serve as the source of information about
      Mauryan India. It depicts the contemporary administration, society,
      political and economic condition of India in the most significant way.
      2.     Kautilya’s Arthashastra: Kautilya‟s Arthashastra too throws
      light on the various phases of contemporary India.
       3.     Vishakh Dutta’s Mudrarakshas : This significant text
       delineates the destruction of Nanda dynasty at the hands of
       Chandragupta Mayurya.
       4.     Jain and Buddha Literature : The literature of both of these
       religious bears information regarding the contemporary Indian society
       along with it politics etc.
       5.     Inscriptions of Asoka. The Inscriptions of Asoka located at
       several places also throw light on the administration, religion, society,
       caste system etc. of the Mauryan age.
Q6.    This is a statement made by one of the best known epigraphists of the
       twentieth century, D.C. Sircar: There is no aspect of life, culture and
       activities of the Indians that is not reflected in inscriptions. Discuss.
I.     Introduction : Inscriptions are very important as a source of history
       reconstruction. D.C. Sircar has correctly urged that there is no aspect
       of life, culture and activities of the Indians that is not reflected in
       inscriptions. Generally , inscriptions were commissioned by those
       whose achievements / activities / ideas were recorded in them.
              Inscriptions are virtually permanent records. Some inscriptions
       carry dates. Others are dated on the basis of paleography or styles of
       writing with a fair amount of precision. For instance the letter was
       written like this c.250 BCE by C. 500 CE it was written like 500 A.D.
II.    Description of gifts made to religious institution and description given
       by inscriptions.
       Votive inscriptions give us descriptions about gifts made to religious
       institutions. These mention the name of the donor, and sometimes
       specify his/her occupation as well.

III.   Information about people of the Mauryan age and inscriptions: They
       tell us about people who lived in towns: washing folk, weavers,
       scribes, carpenters, potters, smiths, including goldsmiths and
       blacksmiths, officials, religious teachers, merchants and kings.
       Sometimes organizations of craft producers guilds or srenis are
       mentioned in inscriptions and texts. These probably procured raw
       materials regulated production and marketed the finished produce.
IV.    Information about trade and inscriptions: Around the same time there
       is evidence for long distance trade, historians combine evidence from
       a variety of sources to reconstruct and understand this process.

Q7.   How the Manusmriti has define the features and functions of
      chandalas? What some Chinese travelers have written about them ?
Ans. (i)     The Manusmriti (compiled c. 2nd century (CE) laid down what
      it described as the duties of the chandalas. They were expected to live
      outside the village use discarded bowls with dogs and donkeys as their
      wealth. They were to wear the clothes of the dead and eat out of
      broken dishes wear ornaments of black iron and wander constantly.
      They were not to walk about in villages and cities at night. They had
      to handle the bodies of those who had no relatives and act as
      (ii)   Much later in the account of his travels the Chinese Buddhish
      monk Fa Xian (5th century CE) wrote that the untouchables had to
      sound a clapper in the streets of the town to warn the people of their
      presence. Another Chinese pilgrim Xuan Zang (7th century CE)
      observed that executioners and scavengers were forced to live outside
      the city and their houses were marked.
Q8.   Textual traditions are one of the major sources for understanding the
      process of changes. Explain the statement in about 100 words.
Ans. Textual traditions are of the major sources for understanding changes
      in the economy and polity. Some texts laid down norms of social
      behaviour. Others described and occasionally commented on a wide
      range of social situation and practices. And we can catch a glimpse of
      some social actors from inscriptions. Each of these sources is written
      from the perspective of some social categories. So we need to keep in
      mind who composed it and for whom. We also need to consider the
      language of the text, and ways in which it circulated.

Q9.    The following is an excerpt from the Mahabarta in which Yudishtra,
       the eldest Pandava speaks to Sanjaya a messenger :
       Sanjaya convey my respectful greetings to all the Brahmanas and the
       chief priest of the house of Dhritarashtra. I bow respectfully to teacher
       Drona……I hold the feet of our preceptor Kripa…. (and) the chief of
       the Kurus, the great Bhishma. I bow respectfully to the old king
       (Dhritarashtra). I greet and ask after the health of his son Dhritarashtra
       and his younger brother……. Also greet all the young Kuruwarriors
       who are our brothers sons and grandsons….. Greet above all him who
       is to us like father and mother, the wise Vidura (born of a slave
       woman)…. I bow to the elderly ladies who are known as our mother.
       To those who are our wives you say this, “I hope they are well
       protected… Our daughters in law born of good families and mothers
       of children greet on my behalf. Embrace for me those who are our
       daughters…… The beautiful fragrant well dressed courtesans of ours
       you should also greet. Greet the slave women and their children greet
       the aged the maimed (and) the helpless.
              Try and identify the criteria used to make this list in terms of
       age, gender kinship ties. Are there any other criteria ? For each
       category explain why are placed in a particular position in the list.
Ans. The criteria had been used to make this list the terms of age gender
       and kinship ties in brief ca be mention in this way :
i)     First of all respect should be paid to all the Brahamans and the chief
       priest of the ruler.
ii)    Secondly Guru Dronacharya should be honoured.
iii)   The great old man Bhismpitama was given place of honour at third

iv)    After that Yudhisthira bow respectfully to old king and his young
       brother to all these people he considered like his father and then he
       should respect to female members of Kuru family as his mothers –
       Kinship were honoured.
v)     At next place Yudhisthira showed honoured to Vidhura born of a
       slave women. After that the elderly ladies and daughters and mother
       of children were given respect.
vi)    There is other criteria also respect should be shown equally to all elder
       persons whether they are from royal families or they are Brahamans
       or from any other Varnas because age should be given first of all
       regard without considering gender and blood relation.
vii)   Yudhisthira put his list of honour keeping of view the old traditions of
       Brahamans text (books) and maintaining the old social order generally
       followed during the epic age.
Q10. This is what a famous historian of Indian literature Maurice
       Winternitz, wrote about the Mahabarata: “just because Mahabarata
       represents more of an entire literature….. and contains so much and so
       many kinds of things….. (it) gives (s) us an insight into the most
       profound depths of the sold of the Indian folk”….Discuss.
Ans. There are several literary sources to reconstruct ancient Indian history.
       Mahabarata is one of them. This is a famous historical source. Its
       importance has been recognized in not by Indian historian but also by
       foreign and western historian for example Maurice Winternitz wrote
       about great epic just because the Mahabarata represents more of an
       entire literature. It contains to so many kinds of hints related with
       different aspects of the Indian lives. It we study this vast book it gives
       us and inside into the most perfound depth of the soul of the Indian
       people. For example Mahabarata was written in Sanskrit, a language
meant also exclusively for priests and elites. However the Sanskrit
used in simpler than that of the Vedas. Therefore it was probably
widely understood.
      Historians usually classify the contents of the present text under
two broad heads sections that contain stories designated as the
narrative and section that contain prescriptions about social norms
designated as didactic. This division is by no means watertight – the
didactic sections include stories and the narrative often contains a
social message. However generally historians agree that the
Mahabarata was meant to be dramatic moving story and that the
didactic portions were probably added later.
      Interestingly the text is described as an itihasa within early
Sanskrit tradition. The literal meaning of the term is thus it was which
is why it is generally translated as history. Was there a real war that
was remembered in the epic ? We are not sure. Some historians think
that the memory of an actual conflict amongst kinfolk was preserved
in the narrative others pint out that there is no other corroborative
evidence of the battle.
      Who wrote the Mahabarata. This is a question to which there
are several answers. The original story was probably composed by
charioteer bards known as sutas who generally accompanied
Kshatriya warriors to the beattlefiled and composed poems celebrating
their victories and other achievements. These compositions circulated
orally. Then, from the fifth century BCE, Brahmanas took over the
story and began to commit it to writing. This was the time when
chiefdoms such as those of the Kurus and Panchalas around whom the
story of the epic revolves, were gradually becoming kingdoms. Did
the new things want their itihasa to be recorded and preserved more
     systematically ? It is also possible that the unpheavals that often
     accompanied the establishment of these states, where old social values
     were often replaced by new norms, are reflected in some parts of the
              The Mahabarata, like any other major epic, contains vivid
     descriptions of battles, forests palaces and settlements. This book
     described not only Kinship, political life of that period but also social
     priority based on caste, sex and social classes. We can find about
     some major feature of family life such as ideal of patriliny, different
     forms of marriage and rules related with marriage system the social
     position of women however mothers important in the society. Social
     differences prevailed in the social system of India. Some thrones were
     occupied even by known Kshtriya kings. The epic also deals about jati
     and social mability etc.

Q.1 Why had Magadha become the centre of the new religious
Ans. (i) The people of Magadha responded readily to the
         because they were looked down upon the orthodox
     (ii)    The role of the rulers of the Magadha. They took
             keen interest on spreading the religion in India as
             well in other countries.
     (iii)   The wealth of Magadha also helped in spreading
             new religious movements.

Q.2 How far the Indian Rulers were responsible for the
    preservation of the Stupa of Sanchi?
Ans. The role played by Rulers of India special the rulers of
     Bhopal could protect the many monuments. The role of
     the kings of Bhopal for protection of Sanchi monuments
     is as under.
     (i)     In nineteenth century Europeans were very much
             interested in structure at Sanchi. In fact, the
             French requested Shahjehan Begum for permission
             to take away eastern gateway, which was the best
             preserved, to be displayed in a Museum in French.
             For a while some Englishmen also wished to do the
             same but fortunately both the French and the
             English were satisfied with carefully prepared
             plaster cast copies and the original remained at the
             site, part of the Bhopal state.
     (ii)    The ruler of Bhopal, Shahjehan Begum and her
             successor Sultan Jehan Begum provided money for
             preservation of the ancient site. She funded the
             Museum that was built there as well as the guest
             house where she lived. She funded the publication
             of the volumes as well.
     (iii)   So if the Stupa complex has survived, it is in no
             small measure due to wise decisions of Begums and
             to good luck in escaping from the eyes of railway
             and to carry away to the Museums of Europe.

Q.3 Why do you think the Budha advised his followers to be
    lamps unto yourselves?
Ans. We think the Budha advised his followers to be lamps
     unto yourselves because he regarded the social world as
     the creation of human according to him is has no divine
     origin. Therefore he advised rulers and chief of the
     families to be human and athetical according to him.
     Only individual efforts were expected to transformed
     social relation. It was also expected to lead to self
     realisation and nirbhan, literally the blowing out of the
     ego and desire, and thus and the cycle of suffering for
     those who renounced the world. According to Budhist
     tradition, his last words to his followers were "I am
     reaching the end to my life."

Q.4 Why do you think men and women joined the Sangha?
Ans. We think men and women joined the Sangha to study
     Budhism and its texts more systematically and regularly.
     They wanted to become the teachers of the dharma.
     These Sangha were good place to lead to simple life in
     required environment. They desired to process only
     essential requisites for survival, such as a robe and bowl
     to receive food colleted once a day from the liaty, to whom
     they taught the dharma.

Q.5 Evaluate the circumstances which were responsible for
    the spread of Buddhism?
Ans. (i)   Appropriate atmosphere in 600 BC as many bad
     evils                                         were
           practiced in the society.
     (ii)    Effect of royal family, people also followed the king.
     (iii)   Use of simple Pali language of common people.
     (iv)    The teachings of Lord Buddha were usual
     (v) Kept away           this   religion   from    unnecessary
     (vi)    Away from casteism
     (vii) Ideal preacher of this dhurma
     (viii) Patronage by the state.
     (ix)    Boddh monasteries
     (x)     Acceptability of change.

Q.6 Explain the differences between the Hinyana and
    Mahayana sets of Buddhism on the basis of the concept
    of Bodhisata?
Ans. By the first century CE, there is evidence of changes in
     Buddhist ideas and practices. Early Buddhist teaching
     head given importance to self efforts in achieving
     nibbana. Besides, the Buddha was regarded as a human
     being who attained enlightenment and nibbana through
     his own efforts. Gradually the idea of a saviour emerged.
     It was believed that he was the one who could ensure
     salvation. Simulanetously the concept of the Bodhisata
     was also developed. Bodhisata were perceived as deeply
     compassionate being who accumulated merit through
     their efforts but used this not to attain nibbana and
     thereby abandon the world, but to help others. The
     worship of images of t he Buddha and Bodhisattas
     became an important part of this tradition.

      This new way of thinking was called Mahayana.
Literally the „Great vehicle‟. Those who adopted these
beliefs described the older tradition as Hinayana or “the
lesser vehicle”
 Boddha dharm was divided into two different sects
named Hinayana and Mahayana. The differences between
them were the following :
          Mahayana                        Hinayana
1.   They    treated      Lord They treated the Lord
     Buddha as deity and Buddha as a symbol of
     worshipped his idol.      idealism and purity.
2.   They over stressed belief They       believed     the
     and devotion.             religious teachings only
                               after getting it confirmed
                               on the basis of debate.
3.   They used Sanskrit.          Their entire literature
                                  was in Pali language.
4.   They thought it essential They stressed pure and
     to follow the religious good conduct to attain
     rules    to     attain the the objective of live.
     objective of life.
5.   The word meaning of          The word meaning of
     Mahayana is the greater      Hinayana is the lesser
     yana (or bigger ship). The   yaan (or shorter ship).
     sect believes that every     The followers of this sect
     body should care for his     believes that everybody
     own 'nirvana' as well as     should care only for his
     for the salvation of         own      'nirvana'      or
     others.                      salvation because this
                                  philosophical thought is
                                  concerned     to     every
                                  person individually.

Q.7 Assess the importance of Budhism for the enrichment of
     Indian culture.
Ans. The contribution of Buddhism to the enrichment of
     Indian culture was as below :

     (i)     Buddhism created and developed a new awareness
             in the field of intellect and culture. It taught the
             people not to take things for granted but to argue
             and judge them on merits. To certain extent the
             place of superstition was taken by logic.

     (ii)    In order to preach the doctrines of the new religion
             the Buddhists compiled a new type of literature.
             They enormously enriched Pali by their writings.

     (iii)   The Buddhist monasteries developed as great
             centres of learning and can be called residential
             universities. Mention may be made of Nalanda and
             Vikramshila in Bihar, and Valabhi in Gujarat.

     (iv)    The first human statues worshipped in India were
             probably those of the Buddha. The panels found at
             Gaya in Bihar and at Sanchi and Bharhut in
             Madhya Pradesh are illuminating examples of
             artistic activity.

     (v)     The Gandhara and Mathura Schools of sculptures
             were purely based on the Bodh subjects and its
             culminated the art of Indian Sculptures.

               Through the Eyes of Travellers

High order Thinking Skill Question and Answers :

      Q.1 What are the comparisons that Ibn Battula makes to give his

readers an idea about what coconuts looked like?

      Ans The following is how Ibn Battuta described the coconut :
(i)    These trees are among the most peculiar trees in kind and most

astonishing in habit. They look exactly like date palms, without any

difference between them except that the one produces nuts as its fruits and

the other produces dates.

(ii)   The nut of a coconut tree resembles a man's head, for in it are what

look like two eyes and a mouth, and the inside of it when it is green looks

like the brain and attached to it is a fibre which looks like hair. They make

from this cards with which they sew up ships instead of (using) iron nails,

and they (also) make from it cables for vessels.

Q.2    What, according to Bernier, were the problems faced by peasants in

the subcontinent ? Do you think his description would have served to

strengthen his case ?

             Ans Yes, I think his description would have served to

strengthen his case. Following problems were faced by peasants in the

subcontinent :

(i)    Owing to crown ownership of land, landholders could not pass on

their land to their children. So they were averse to any long, term investment

in the sustainance and expansion of production.

(ii)     It had led to the uniform ruination of agriculture excessive appression

of the peasantly and a continuous decline in the living standards of all

sections of society.

(iii)    Of the vast tracts of country constituting the empire of Hindustan,

many are little more than sand, or barren mountains.

(iv)     Even a considerable portion of the good land remains untilled for

want of labourers.

(v)      Many of whom perish in consequence of the bad treatment they

experience from Governors.

(vi)     The poor people, when they become incapable of discharging the

demands of their rapacious lords, are not only often deprived of the means of

subsistence, but are also made to lose their children, who are carried away as

slaves. Thus, it happens that the peasantly, driven to despair by 50 excessive

a tyranny, abandon the country.

               Q.3Do you think Al-Biruni depended only on Sanskrit texts for

his information and understanding of Indian Society ?

         Ans. No, Al-Biruni did not depend only on Sanksrit texts for his

information and understanding of Indian history for it be mention following

(i)     Travellers often compared what they saw in the subcontinent with

practices with which they were familiar.

(ii)    Each traveller adopted distinct strategies to understand what they

observed. Al-Biruni for instance, was aware of the problems inherent in the

task he had set himself.

(iii)   According to him, Sanskrit was so different from Arabic and persian

that ideas and concepts could not be easily translated from one language into


(iv)    In spite of his acceptance of the Brahmanical description of the caste

system. Al-Biruni disapproved of the notion of pollution.

(v)     Al-Biruni's description of the caste system was deeply influenced by

his study of normative Sanskrit texts which laid down the rules governing

the system from the point of view of the Brahmanas.

        q 4- Do you think Ibn-Battuta's account is useful in arriving at an

understanding of life in contemporary urban centres ? Give reasons for your


        Ans. Yes, it explain in following points :-

        I. Description - Ibn-Battuta's description about Indian cities is more

useful to know about their population, roads, markets and other properious

      II. Delhi - When Ibn-Battuta reached in Delhi in 14th Century. He

found such type of Delhi.

      (i) The city of Delhi covers a wide area and has a large population.

The rampart round the city is without parellel.

      (ii) Inside the ramparts, there are store-houses for storing edibles,

magazines, ammunition, ballistas and siege machines.

      (iii) There are twenty eight gates of this city which are called darwaza,

and of these, the Budaun darwaza is the greatest.

      III. Ibn Battuta and Indian Cities - Ibn-Bututa found cities in the

subcontinent full of exciting opportunities for those who had the necessary

drive, resources and skills. They were densely populated and prosperious. It

appears from Ibn-Battuta's account that most cities had crowded streets and

bright and colourful markets that were stacked with a wide variety of goods.

Ibn Battuta described Delhi as a vast city with a great population, the largest

in India.

      IV. Markets - The bazaars were not only places of economic

transactions but also the hub of social and cultural activities. Most bazaars

had a mosque and a temple and in some of them at least spaces were marked

for public performances by dancers, musicians and singers.

               Bhakti and Sufi Tradition

Q1:-Discuss the ways in which the Alwars, Nayanars and Virashaivas

expressed critiques of the caste systems.

Ans:- Some historians suggest that the Alvars and Nayanars initiated a

movement of protest against the caste system and the dominance of

Brahmanas or at least attempted to reform the system. To some extent this is

corroborated by the fact that bhaktas hailed from diverse social backgrounds

ranging from Brahmanas to artisans and cultivators and even from castes

considered "untouchable".

*     The twelfth century witnessed the emergence of a new movement in

Karnataka, led by a Brahmana named Basavanna (1106-08). His followers

were known as Virashaivas or Lingayats (Wearers of the linga).

*     The Lingayats challenged the idea of caste and the pollution attributed

to certain groups by Brahmanas. They also questioned the theory of rebirth.

These won them followers amongst those who were marginalised within the

Brahmanical social order.

*     The Lingayats also encouraged certain practices disapproved in the

Dharmashastras, such as postpuberty marriage and the remarriage of


Q2:- Analyse, with illustrations, why bhakti and sufi thinkers adopted a

variety of languages in which to express their opinions.

Ans:- Bhakti thinkers and different languages which were adopted by them

to express their opinion.

      (i) Early Bhakti Saints Pali, Prakarat Tamil and Malyalam etc.


      (ii) The Brahmans of South Indian put his views and ideas in Sanskrit

and local languages.

      (iii) Kabir's poems have survived in several languages and dialects,

and some are composed the special languages of nirguna poets.

      (iv) Baba Guru Nanak, Ravidas etc. composed their hymns in various

languages such as Punjabi and Hindi etc.

      (v) Mirabai compose her Bhajans in Rajsthani and Hindi.

      (vi) Some saint of Maharastra and Gujarati uses Marathi and Gujarati


      According to Sufi thinkers -

      (i) Sufi thinkers also live with peoples. They uses serveral languages.

They uses Hindvi or persian language.

      (ii) Baba Farid used local language. Hindvi persian, Panjabi, Urdu and

some other form of languages are also seen.

      (iii) A different genre of Sufi poetry was composed in an around the

town of Bijapur, Karnataka. These were short poems in Dakhani (a variant

of Urdu) attributed to Chisthi Sufis who lived in this region during the 17th

and 18th centuries.

      (iv) Some Sufi saints give their pledge in Telgu, Malayalam


Q3:- "Kabir was a famous saint of Bhakti period". Examin that statement.

Ans. Kabir was a famous saint of Bhakti period. That facts is examine by the

following points :

      Kabir's Teachings :

      (i) Kabir did not accept the caste distinction. He believed that none

could be high or low on the score of caste.

      (ii) Kabir was opposed to customs and rituals. He has opposed

worship, roja-namaj, pilgrimage and haj etc.

      (iii) Kabir believed in the unity of all religions according to him, there

is no distinction between Hindu-Muslim. The destination of both is the same

only the paths are different.

      (iv) His teachings openly ridiculed all forms of external worship of

both Brahmanical Hinduism and Islam the pre-eminence of the priestly

classes and the caste system.

      (v) Kabir opposed caste distincition, condemned bad company,

stressed upon - meditation and love. He identified the teacher with God.

Q4:- Explain with examples what historians mean by the integration of cults.

Ans:- From tenth to 17th century the most striking religious features is the

increasing visibility of a wide range god and goddes in sculpture as well as

in religious books at one level, this indicates the continued and extended

worship major dieties Vishnu, Shiva and goodness like Durga, Laxmi -

-     Historians who have tried to understand these developments suggest

that there were at least two processes at work. One was a process of

disseminating Brahmanical ideas.
-     This is examplified by the composition, compilation and preservation

of puranic texts in simple Sanskrit verse, explicity meant to be accessible to

women and Shudras, who were generally excluded from Vedic learning.

-     At the same time there was a second process at work that of the

Brahmanans accepting and reworking the beliefs and practices of these and

other social categories.

      Example - Through an instance we can say that a local diety whose

image was and continues to be made of wood by local tribal specialists, was

recognised as a form of Vishnu.

      These local deities were often incorporated within the Puranic

framework by providing them with an identity as a wife of the principal

male deities - sometimes they were equated with Lakshmi, the wife of

                    Vijayanagara Empire

Q.1:- Evaluate the importance of Amar Nayaka System in emergence of

Vijayanagara Empire.

      Ans. The amara-nayaka system was a major political innovation of the

Vijayanagara Empire. It is likely that many features of this sytem were

derived from the iqta system of the Delhi Sultanate.

      There is a important role of this sytem to emerging the Vijayanagara

empire. That shows in the following points :

(i)     The amara-nayakas were military commanders who were given

territories to govern by the raya. The collected taxes and other dues from


(ii)    The amar nayak retained part of the revenue for personal use and for

maintaining a stipulated contingent of horses and elephants.

(iii)   These contingents provided the Vijayanagara Kings with an effective

fighting force with which they brought the entire southern peninsula under

their control. Some of the revenue was also used for the maintenance of

temples and irrigation works.

(iv)    The amara-nayakas sent tribute to the King annually and personally

appeared in the royal court with gifts to express their loyalty.

(v)     Kings occasionally asserted their control over them by transferring

them from one place to another.

Q2:- What do you think were the advantages and disadvantages of enclosing

agricultural land within the fortified area of the city ?

Ans. There are many advantages and disadvantages of enclosing agricultural

land within the fortified area of the Vijayanagara empire.

        1. Abdur Razzaq noted that "between the first, second and third walls

there are cultivated fields, gardens and houses.

       2. The detailed statements have been corroborated by present day

archaeologists, who have also found evidence of an agricultural tract

between the sacred centre and the urban core.

       3. We knew different sources that in Vijayanagara empire and other

southern kingdom agricultural tracts were incorporated within the fortified

areas. Often, the objective of medieval sieges was to strave the defenders

into submission. These sieges could last four several months and sometimes

even years.

       4. Normally rulers tried to be prepared for adverse situations or

natural calamities by building large granaries within fortified areas. The

rulers of Vijayanagara adopted a more expensive and elaborate strategy of

protecting the agricultural belt itself.

       5. Whenever, Kingdom was attacked by the enemies at the time of

heaping harvest they could easily brunt the dry crops of the farmers. But

these fields was safe in ordinary situation from wild animals.

Q3:- What do you think was the significance of the ritua's associated with

the Mahanavami dibba ?

Ans. The importance of the rituals associated with the Mahanawami dibba.

      Located on one of the highest points in the city, the "Mahanawami

dibba" is a massive platform rising from a base of about 11000 sq.ft. to a

height of 40 H.

      Rituals associated with the strucutre probably coincided with

Mahanawami (Literally the great ninth day) of the ten-day Hindu festival

during the autumn months of September and October, known variously as

Dushehra (northern India), Durga Puja (in Bengal) and Navaratri or

Mahanawami (in Peninsular India). The Vijayanagara kings displayed their

prestige, power and suzerainty on this occastion.

-     The ceremonies performed on the occasion included worship of the

image, worship of the state hourse, and the sacrifice of buffaloes and other


-     Dancer, wrestling matches, and processions of caparisoned horses,

elephants and chariots and soldiers, as well as ritual presentations before the

king and his guests by the chief nayakas and subordinate kings marked the


-     These ceremonies were imbued with deep symbolic meanings on the

last day of the festival the king inspected his army and the armies of the

nayakas in a grand ceremony in an open field. On this occasion the nayakas

brought rich fifts for the king as well as the stipulated tribute.

Q4:- What impression of the lives of the ordinary people of Vijayanagara

can you cull from the various descriptions in Vijayanagara empire.

Ans. Ordinary people of this empire scope different languages and followed

different religious tradition.

-     There were small traders and local merchant use to live in cities, trade

cetnre, port town and villages.

-     Peasants, workers, slaves etc. were including in ordinary people.

These were ordinary Brahmans, trader and women also.

-     The workers were called "Vipravinodin" this class consisted of Iron

smiths, Gold smiths, carpenters, sculpture makers etc.

-     In the society there were a few low class people, who were non-

influential. They were Dombar, Mana, Jogi, Paraiyan, Boi, Kallar etc. Some

low caste people were coverted to christianity due to the influence of the

Portugeuses. The evils of caste system and untouchability were practised in

the society.

-     The ordinary people of the Vijayanagar empire lived in ordinary

houses. This is how the sixteenth century portuguese traveller Barbosa

described the houses of ordinary people existed in the society. The men were

sold and purchased. There were some special rules for the slaves.

Agrarian Society and the Mughal Empire
(C. Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century)
Q. 01.     Discuss, with examples, the significance of monetary
           transactions during the period 16th and 17th century.

Anns.   The significance of monetary transactions during
        sixteenth and seventeenth centuries :

        (i)     In the early decades of sixteenth century
                farmers were allowed to pay land revenue in
                cash or kind. Due to the facility to pay land
                revenue in cash money, monetary transactions
                played vital role in Indian economy.
        (ii)    Village artisan (potter, blacksmith, barber, etc.)
                use to provide specialized services to the
                villagers. Though most common way of
                compensating them was giving them a share
                of the harvest but their was another system also
                under this system artisans and individual
                peasants, house hold entered into a mutually
                negotiated system of remuneration, most of the
                time goods for services. For example,
                eighteenth-century records tell us a zamindars
                in Bangal who remunerated blacksmiths,
                carpenters, even goldsmiths for their work by
                paying them “a small daily allowance and diet
                money”. This later came to be described as the
                Jajmani system, though the term was not in
                vogue in the sixteenth and seventeenth
                centuries. Such evidence is interesting because
                in indicates the intricate ways in which
                exahnge networks operated at the micro-level
                of the village. Cash remuneration was not
                entirely unknown either.
        (iii)   The seventeenth-century French traveler Jean-
                Baptists Tavernier found it remarkable that in
                “India a village must be very small indeed if it
                has not a money changer called a Shroff.
                (They) act as bankers to make remittances of
                money (and who) enhance the rupee as they
                please for paisa and the paisa for these
                (cowrie) shells”.
        (iv)    An expanding trade brought in huge amounts
                of silver bullion into Asia to pay for good
               procured from India, and a large part of that
               bullion gravitated towards India. This was good
               for India as it did not have natural resources of
         (v) As a result, the period between the sixteenth
               and eighteenth centuries was also marked by a
               remarkable stability in the availability of metal
               currency, particularly the silver rupya in India.
         (vi) This facilitated an unprecedented expansion of
               minting of coins and the circulation of money in
               the economy as well as the ability of the
               Mughal state to extract taxes and revenue in
         (vii) The testimony of an Italian traveler, Giovanni
               Careri, who passed throught India c. 1690,
               provides a graphic account about the way
               silver traveled across the globe to reach India.
               It also gives us an idea of the phenomenal
               amounts of cash and commodity transactions
               in seventeenth-century India.

Q. 02.   To what extent do you think caste was a factor in
         influencing social and economic relations in
         agrarian society ?

Anns.    Caste as a factor in influencing social and economic
         relations in agrarian society.

         (i)    Sizeable number of major (labourer). Deep
                ineqities on the basis of caste and other caste
                like distinctions meant that the cultivators were
                a highly heterogenous group. Among those
                who tilled the land, there was a sizeable
                number who worked as menials or agricultual,
                labourers (major).
         (ii)   Despite the abundance of cultivable land,
                certain caste groups were assigned menial taks
                and thus relegated to poverty. Though there
                was no census at that time, the little data that
                 we have suggest that such groups comprised a
                 large section of the village population, had the
                 least resources and were constrained by their
                 position in the caste hierarchy, much like the
                 Dalits of modern India. Such distinctions had
                 begun permeating into other communities too.
         (iii)   Muslim halakhoran etc. : In muslim communities
                 menials like the halakhoran (scavengers) were
                 housed outside the boundaries of the village,
                 similarly mallahzadas (literally, sons of boatmen)
                 in Bihar were comparable to slaves.
         (iv)    Direct co-relation between caste and socio
                 economic position : There was a direct
                 correlation between caste, poverty and social
                 status at the lower strata of society such
                 correlations were not so mared at intermediate
                 levels. In a manual from seventeenth century
                 Marwar, Rajputs are mentioned as peasants,
                 sharing the same space with Jats, who were
                 accorded a lower status in the caste hierarchy.
                 The Gauravas, who cultivated land around
                 Vrindavan (Uttar Prades), sought Rajput status
                 in the seventeenth century.
         (v)     Rise in hierarchy of caste : Castes such as the
                 Ahirs, Gujars and Malis rose in the hierarchy
                 because of the profitability of cattle rearing
                 and horticulture. In the eastern regions,
                 intermediate pastoral and fishing castes like the
                 sadgops and Kaivartas acquired the status of

Q. 03.   Discuss the ways in which panchayats and village
         headmen regulated rural society.

Anns.    Regulation of rural society by Panchayats and
         headmen :

(i)     Meaning of Panchayat : The village panchayat
        was an assembly of elders, usually important
        people of the village with hereditary right over
        their property.

(ii)    General composition and importance of
        Panchayat decision : In mixed-caste villages,
        the panchayat was usually a heterogeneous
        body.     An   oligarchy,   the   panchayat
        represented various castes and communities in
        the village, though the village menial-cum-
        agricultural worker was unlikely to be
        represented there. The decisions made by
        these panchayats were binding on the

(iii)   Selection dismissal and main function of
        headman or muqaddam : The panchayat was
        headed by a headman known as muqaddam
        or mandal. Some sources suggest that the
        headman was chosen through the consensus
        of the village elders, and that this choice had
        to be ratified by the zamindar. Headmen held
        office as long as they enjoyed the confidence
        of the village elders, failing which they could be
        dismissed by them. The chief function of the
        headman was to supervise the preparation of
        village accounts, assisted by the accountant or
        patwari of the panchayat.

(iv)    Funding of Panchayat or sources of Income
        Panchayat. : The panchayat derived its funds
        from contributions made by individuals to a
        common financial pool.

(v)     Item of expenditure : These funds were used for
        defraying the costs of entertaining revenue
        officials who visited the village from time to
        time. Expenses for community welfare activities
       such as tiding over natural calamities (like
       floods), were also meet from these funds. Often
       these funds were also deployed in construction
       of a bund or digging a canal which peasants
       usually could not afford to do on their own.

(vi)   Various function of panchayat : One important
       functions of the panchayat was to ensure that
       caste    boundaries     among       the  various
       communities inhabiting the village were
       upheld. In estern India all marriage were held in
       the presence of the mandal. In other words
       one of the duties of the village headman was
       to oversee the conduct of the members of the
       village community “chiefly to prevent any
       offence against their caste”.

(vii) Imposing fines and expulsion from caste and
      community : Panchayat also had the authority
      to levy fines and inflict more serious forms of
      punishment like expulsion from the community.
      The later was a drastic step and was in most
      cases meted out for a limited period. It meant
      that a person forced to leave the village
      became an outcaste and lost his right to
      practise his profession. Such a measure was
      intended as a deterrent to violation of caste

(viii) Caste or Jati Panchayat : In addition to the
       village panchayat each caste or jati in the
       village had its own jati panchayat. These
       panchayates wielded considerable power in
       rural society. In Rajasthan jati panchayats
       arbitrated civil disputes between members of
       different castes. They mediated in contested
       claims on land, decided whether marriages
       were performed according to the norms laid
       down by a particular caste group, determined
                 who had ritual precedence in village functions,
                 and so on. In most cases, except in matters of
                 criminal justice, the state respect the decisions
                 of jati panchayats.

          (ix)   Petitions presented by caste panchayat and
                 their impact : Archival records from western
                 India-notably Rajasthan and Maharashtra-
                 contain petitions presented to the panchayat
                 complaining about extortionate taxation or the
                 demand for unpaid labour (beggar) imposed
                 by the “superior” castes or officials of the state.
                 These petitions were usually made by villagers,
                 from the lowest rungs of rural society. Often
                 petitions were made collectively as well, by a
                 caste group or a community protesting against
                 what they considered were morally illegitimate
                 demands on the part of elite groups. These
                 included excessive tax demands which,
                 especially in times of drought or other disasters,
                 endangered the peasants subsistence. In the
                 eys of the petitioners of right to the basic
                 minimum for survival was sanctioned by
                 custom. They regarded the village panchayat
                 as the court of appeal that would ensure that
                 the state carried out its moral obligations and
                 guaranteed justice.

            agrarian relation in the Mugal period.

                                Kings and Chronicles

Ques. 1 Evaluate the concerns that shaped Mughal Policies and attitudes
towards Regions outside the sub continents?
The special attention was started on the North West Frontier areas from the
period of Akbar. The Political and diplomatic relations between the Mughal
Kings and the neighboring countries of Iran and Turan hinged on the control
of the frontier defined by the Hindu Kush Mountains that separated
Afghanistan from the regions of Iran and Central Asia.
A constant Aim of Mughal Policy was to check/ prevent outside Potential
danger by controlling strategic out posts- notably Kabul and Qandhar.
      The relationship between the Mughals and ottomans was marked by
the concern to ensure free movement for traders and pilgrims in the
territories under ottoman control, where the important pilgrim centres of
Mecca and Madina were located.
      Qandhar was a bone of contention between safavids and the Mughals,
the fortress town has initially been in the possession of Humayun
reconquered in 1595 by Akbar, in 1622 A Persian army besieged Qandhar.
The ill prepared Mughal army was defeated and had to surrender the fortress
and the city to the safavids.
      The Mughal Emperor usually combined Religion and commerce by
exporting valuable merchandise to Aden and Mokha, Both red seaports and
distributing the proceeds of the sales in charity to the keepers of shrines and
religious men there.
      On the basis of above mentioned causes we can say that Mughal
emperors were very much vigilant especially to the North West frontier
areas. Strong efforts had been made to control these areas upto the period of

Sharjahan but later his successors did not pay any attention on such
important areas and this resulted invasion of Nadir Shah and Ahmad shah

Ques No.2 “Sher Shah Suri was the forerunner of Akbar” Prove this
Statement by giving reasonable arguments.
Answer       Shershah Suri was the great Emperor of the Medieval Era. His
works and successes of Shershah Suri were so great that these became ideal
for the forthcoming Rulers.
      Shershah was a hard working and disciplined personality. He was in
favour of equal law for each and everybody and he considered Judgment as
most holy religious work.
      Keeping in view, the general welfare of the people and for the
effectiveness of empire, he divided his empire into „Sarkars‟ and the sarkar
into „Parganas‟.
      The biggest gift of Sher Shah Suri to Akbar is in the area of land
management. He divided the land and the land revenue according to the
produce of the land.
      Sher Shah Suri got shady trees planted along the road sides for
convenience of the general public.
      For the encouragement of the traders and convenience of general
people. He introduced Gold, Silver, and copper coins and a certain amount
of metal was kept in the coins.
      Shershah was the first emperor who adopted religious liberty and
equal behavior. He separated politics to the religion.
             He recruited a vast central permanent army. HE gave cash
payment to the Army, horse branded, getting the description rolls of the

soldiers recorded and their recruitment and inspection of the troop from time
to time.
      He opened hospitals for the poor. He also encouraged the expansion
of Education.
      He was very much interested in the construction of the buildings. The
tomb of Sahsram is an important construction which is a symbol of
coordination of Mohamadden and local architectural styles.
      By the micro analysis of the above mentioned works/ reforms of the
Shershah. It becomes clear that Akbar adopted many works/ reforms of the
Shershah as it is or by some modifications. Therefore         Shershah can be
called as the forerunner of Akbar.

      Ques No.3 What is Mansabdari system? Evaluate the merits and
demerits of this System.
      Answer The word „mansab‟ is derived from an Arabic word which
means „Fixing the place‟ or rank. The mansabdars were the holders of Ranks
in the emperor‟s service. Every Commander to Public servant was given a
rank of mansab. Each mansabdar was required to maintain a number of
      All officers holding a mansab of 5000 or less were divided into three
      i.        If the zat and sawar figures were equal, the officers belonged
                to the first class.
      ii.       If the sawar figure was more than half of the zat figure, he
                belonged to the second class.
      iii.      If the sawar figure was less than half of the zat figure, he was
                put in the third class.

The mansabdars were directly recruited, promoted, suspended and
dismissed by the emperor. Unlike the Jagirdari system, the
mansabdari system was not hereditary. The mansabdars could be
transferred by the emperor upon his sweet will. The mansabdari
troops were recruited by the mansabdar himself. The king however,
laid down general rules for recruitment, maintenance and payment of
      The mansabdars were highly paid. Akbar preferred to pay them
salaries in cash. After the death of mansabdar his immovable property
was taken by the king. Mansabdar had to maintain the record of
soldiers and horses so that these may come in the use of the king
while required. That is why this system could become the main base
of the power of Mughal Empire. Mansabdars also created situations
for the development of literature. Folk Art and Paintings were also
flourished under the guidance of these mansabdars. There was very
much dissimilarity in the salaries and allowances of the army
regiments of the mansabdars. The soldiers of mansabdars were not
responsible to the centre. Generally such kind of army used to obey
the mansabdar not the army commander.
By evaluating above mentioned merits and demerits, it becomes clear
that during the powerful kings this system contributed in the
expansion and consolidation of the empire but during the weak
successors mansabdars started to be out of control to the king and
became an important cause in time decline of Mughal Empire.

       Exploring Official Archives

Q. 01.   What are the problems of using official sources in
         wirting about the history of peasants.

Anns.    Following are the problems in using official sources in
         working about the history of peasants :

         (i)     There are official sources and reflect only British
                 official concerns and interpretation of all
                 events from the outlook and angles of the
                 English. For example, the Deccan riots
                 commission was specifically asked to judge
                 whether the level of Government revenue
                 demand of the cause of the revolt.
         (ii)    Most of the events, revolts and happening
                 have been presented in a biosed manner. The
                 colonial Government and official had their own
                 political, economic, religious, cultural and
                 social interest. The had always tried to present
                 picture of Indian Society people tradition
                 culture and even the achievements.
         (iii)   The sources have been presented and
                 recorded by such clever and naughty people
                 who have intentially presented things with falls
                 evidences also. For example, the Deccan Riot
                 Commission alter presenting all the findings with
                 such evidences which was utilize to give
                 authencity to the report of the commission. The
                 commission has presented this fabricated fact
                 the Government demand was not the cause
                 the peasants angles. It was the moneylenders
                 (again Indian) who were to blames such
                 argument is found very frequently in British
                 colonial records. This shows that there was a
                 persistent on the part of the colonial
                 government to admit that popular discontent
                 was ever on account of Government action.
         (iv)    Official reports, thus are invaluable sources for
                 the reconstruction of history. But they have to
                 be always read the case and just opposed with
                 evidence called from newspapers, unofficial
                 accounts, legal records and, where possible,
                 oral sources.

Q. 02.   What steps taken by the British East India Company
         to control the Zamindars ?

Anns.    The British East India Company took the following
         steps mainly to maintain its control over the

         (i)     The zamindars’ troops were disband, customs,
                 duties abolished, and their cutcheries (Courts)
                 brought under the supervision of collector
                 appointed by the company.
         (ii)    The power to deliver local judgement was also
                 taken away from zamindars. In fact zamindars
                 hold their control and leadership through local
                 caste and other panchayats. They lost their
                 power to organize local police. Over time the
                 collectorate emerged as an altenative centre
                 of authority, severely restricting what the
                 zamindar could do.
         (iii)   In case a Raja (powerful zamindars) failed to
                 pay the land revenue, a Company official was
                 speedly dispatched to his zamindari which
                 explicit instruction “to take charge of the
                 District and to use the most effectual means to
                 destroy all the influence and the authority of
                 the zamindar and his officers.

         (iv)    Some of the scholars believe that some trouble
                 creaters were also used as tools to reduce the
                 influence of Rajahs. For example, when the
                 zamindar despactched their amlah (collector
                 of revenue or representative of zamindar).
                 Some naughty people use to create problem
                 for zamindars. Some ryots deliberately delayed
                 payment. Rich ryots and village headmen
                 jotedars and mandals-were only too happy to
                 see the Zamindar in trouble. The zamindar
                 could therefore not easily arrest his power over

Q. 03.   Why was the jotendars a powerful figure in many
         areas of rural Bengal ?

Anns.    The jotedars a power figure in many areas of rural
         Bengal become while several Zamindars were
         facing a crisis at the end of the 18th century, a group
         of rich peasants were consolidating their position in
         the villages. For example, in rural area of North
         Bengal we get reference about a rich class of
         peasent they were known as jotedars.

         Causes :

         (i)     by the early nineteenth century, jotedars had
                 acquired vast areas of land-sometimes as
                 much as several thousand areas.
         (ii)    They controlled local trade as well as
                 moneylending, exercising immense power over
                 the poorer cultivators of the region
         (iii)   A large part of their land was cultivated
                 through share croppers (adhiyars or bargadars)
                 who brought their own plough, loboured in the

                  field, and handed over half the produce to the
                  jotedars after the harvest.
           (iv)   Within the villages, the power of jotedars was
                  more effective than that of zamindars. Unlike
                  zamindars who often lived in urban areas,
                  jotedars were located in the villages and
                  exercised direct control over a considerable
                  section of poor villagers.
           (v)    Jotedars fiercely resisted efforts by zamindars to
                  increase the jama of the village, prevented
                  zamindari officials from executing their duties,
                  mobilized ryots who were dependent on them,
                  and deliberately delayed payment of revenue
                  to the zamindars. In fact, when the estate of
                  the zamindars were auctioned for failure to
                  make revenue payment, jotedars were often
                  amongst the purchasers.

              COLONIAL CITIES
  Urbanisation, Plannings and Architecture

Q1. How did prominent Indian merchants establish themselves
in the colonial city ?

Anns.    Prominent Indian merchant establish themselves in
         colonial city in different phases. They establish
         themselves in all the three metro colonial cities i.e.,
         Madras (Channai), Bombay (Mumbai) and Calcutta

         First of all these Indian merchants tried to establish
         their relation of the agents of the company. As there
         all colonial cities were trade centre and
         administrative      official. Therefore  the   Indian
         merchants could easily get establish their relation
         with the Europeans. There cities were having
         different types of comforts such as modern hotels,
         restaurant, lodging, boarding, transport fancilities,
         roadways and shipping.

Later on Bombay become a major trade centre of
opium with China. Prominent Indian merchant
played active role in collecting opium from different
places of Rajasthan and Malwa. They use to bring
opium on the back of horses, ponies, camels by road
transport etc. They use to earn a lot of money as
middle man between farmers and companies
agents and officials. Not only East India Company
but some of the government official and later or
other European also participated in illegal trade of
opium. The Indian prominent merchant become
very rich. They constructed big building in all big
cities of colonial period.

As the industrial revolution in England started and
expanded. These colonial cities became entry point
for British manufacture goods and for the expert of
Indian ram materials (which was to be used in large
scale industries and factories of England). The
prominent Indian merchant also participated in
there trade activities.

The introduction of railways in 1853 meant a change
in the fortunes of towns. Economic activity gradually
shifted away from traditional towns which were
located along old routes and rivers. Every railway
station became a collection depot for raw materials
and a distribution point for imported goods. For
instance, Mirzapur on the Ganges, which specialized
in collecting cotton goods from the Deccan,
declined when a railway link was made to Bombay.
With the expansion of the railway network, railway
workships and railways colonies were established
Railways towns like Jamalpur, Waltair and Bareilly

The Indian merchants included the people of
different communities and castes such as Parsi,
Marwari, Konkani, Arbs, Gujarati. Baniyas, Boras and
        Jews. Some of the members of this community
        invested money in modern big industry, shipping and
        Airlines also. They donated money for construction of
        inns, wells, tanks, temples, Mosque, Churches and
        other places of religion and worships.

Q2.     To what extent are census data useful in
        reconstruction patterns of urbanization in the colonial
        context ?

Anns.   Census data are very useful in reconstructing pattern
        of urbanization in the colonial context.

        (i)     We knew that every colonial government
                believe in colour and racial discrimination.
                There census data provide us the total number
                of the people in this way these data are useful
                of know extact number of population as well as
                the total population of while and balcks.
        (ii)    After knowing the number and exact
                population of white and blacks. It becomes
                easier to prepare town, planning, design its
                formation, provision for future expansion,
                keeping in view living standards, needs and
                style of the whites as well as of the blacks.
                These data also tell us upto what extant total
                number of people or total population had
                been effected adversely by the fearful or
                deadly diseases.
        (iii)   Census data provide us complete information
                about total number of different communities,
                their language, their works and means of
                livelihood as well as about their caste and
                religion also.
        (iv)    The growth of cities was mentioned through
                regular head counts. By the midnineteenth
                century several local censuses had been
                 carried out in different regions. The first all-India
                 census was attempted in 1872. Thereafter, from
                 1881, decimal (conducted every ten years)
                 census become a regular feature. This
                 collection of data is an invaluable source for
                 studying urbanization in India.
           (v)   When we look at these reports it appears that
                 we have heard data to measure historical
                 change. The endless pages of tables on
                 disease and death, or the enumeration of
                 people according their age, sex, caste and
                 occupation, provide a vast mass of figures that
                 creates an illusion of concreatensess. Historians
                 have however, found that the figures can be
                 misleading. Before we use these figures we
                 need to understand who collected the data,
                 and why and how they were gathered. We
                 also need to know what was measured and
                 what was not.

Q3:-        Assess the impact of health and defence needs on
       town planning in Colonial Calcutta.

Ans.       In 1756, Sirajudula the Nawab of Bengal sacked the
           small fort which the British traders had built to house
           their goods. Consequently when Sirajudaula was
           defeated in the Battle of Plassey, the British built a
           new fort. Fort William could not be easily attacked.

           Around Fort William, a vast open space was left
           which came to be known as the Maidan or garer-
           math. This was done so there would be no
           obstructions to a straight time of fire from the Fort
           against an advancing enemy army. Soon the British
           began to move out of the Fort and build residences
           along the periphery of the Maidan. This was how the
           English Settlement in Calcutta started taking shape.
           The vast open space around the Fort became
           Calcutta’s first significant town planning measure.
             Lord Wellesley was concerned about the conditions
             that existed in the Indian part of the city the fith,
             overcrowding and the poor drainge. He wrote a
             minute (an administrative order) in 1803 on the need
             for town planning and set up various committees for
             this purpose.

             It was believed that creating open places in the city
             would make the city healthier. Consequently many
             bazaars, ghats, burial ground and tanneries were
             cleared or removed.

             After Wellesley’s departure, the Lottery Committee
             carried on with the work of Town Planning. In its drive
             to make the Indian areas cleaner, the committee
             cleared the river bank of encroachment and
             pushed the poor to the outskirts of Calcutta.

             The outbreak of cholera and plague epidemics in
             the 19th century gave a further impetus to town
             planning. The government believed that there was a
             direct link between living conditions and the spread
             of disease. Densely built up areas were regarded as
             insanitary as it obstructed sunlight and circulation of

Read the following passage carefully. Answer all the questions given after it.

           Escaping to the country side. (Page No. 3/8 Part III)

       This is how the famous poet Mirza Ghalib described what the people
of Delhi did when the British forces occupied the city in 1857.
Limiting the enemy and driving him before them, the vectors (i.e. the
British) overran the city in all direction. All whom they found in street they
cut down.
       For two to three days every road in the city from the Kashmiri gate to
Chandni Chowk, was a battle field. Three gates, the Ajmeri, the Turocaman
and the Delhi were still held by the rebels at the naked spectacle of this

vengeful wrath and malevolent hatred the colour fled from men‟s faces and a
vast concourse of men and women…. took to precipitate flight through these
three gates. Seeking the little villages and shrewdness outside the city, they
drew breath to wait until such time as might favour their return.

Q.1.      Explain any four changes that come about in the
          social life in the new cities under colonial rule.

        Mahatma Gandhi and the Nationalist Movement.
Ques. 1 „Non Cooperation was a form of Protest‟. Evaluate this statement.

Ans:- Gandhiji was one of the greatest personality of the world. His main
principles were – Truth and Non Violence. Gandhiji decided to start non-
cooperation as a unique form of protest freedom struggle against the British
rule. He hoped that by coupling non cooperation with khilafat, Hindu and
Muslims could collectively bring an end to colonial rule.
         During NCM (Non Coorperation Movement) Students stopped going
to school and colleges run by the British Government.
Lawyers refused to attend the court.
The working class went on strike in many towns and cities.
         The country side was seething with discontent.Hill tribe in Northern
Andhra violated by the forest laws. Farmers in Awadh did not pay taxes.
These protest movements were sometime carried out in defence of the local
nationalist leadership.
         By the Analysis of the above mentioned facts it can be said that
undoubtedly this was the first freedom struggle movement, in which most of
Indian castes and communities participated to protest British rule.

Ques.2 How did Mahatma Gandhi transform the nature of the National
Ans:- Gandhiji transformed the nature of the National movement by the
following thoughts, methods ideology, working styles movements etc.
         The main principles of his philosophy were
   i.       Satyagrah

ii.       Non violence
iii.      Peace
iv.       True sympathy for the poorest.
v.        Empowerment of the lady.
vi.       Communal Harmony
vii.      Indian Rural areas and to think about interest of the people residing
          in the villages and to motivate the other people to think, to act and
          to inspire resourceful and influencial high up of the society in
          favour of down trodden.
viii. Opposing untouchablility with his full vigor and strength.
ix.       To stress both equally and their purity of aim and means alike.
x.        To launch public welfare programme.
xi.       To stress importance of cottage Industry.
xii.      Charkha
xiii. Spinning wheels
xiv.      Khadi etc
xv.       To oppose colour discrimination alike.
       Gandhiji utilized south Africa as practical lab for his ideological and
philosophical development. He raised his voice at full pitch their against
wrong policies and injustice done by the government of South Africa. He
utilize Satyagraha in South Africa also in several places in India.
       When Gandhiji returned to motherland in 1915. In fact that time still
Indian National congress was confined in only urban areas upto people of
middle educated classes. He knew very well that its natural power rests
with the rural people, labour, ordinary men and women and young boys
and girls till all sections and people of Indian society would not join
freedom struggle against the colonial British power then it would be very
difficult to finish British authority from India.
`Gandhiji said that British rule have rewarded India through out
spreading Poverty, hunger, low quality of life ,illiteracy, superstitions and
social disunity and disharmony.
   Gandhiji opposed the owners of Indigo plantation of champaran. He
also press the cotton textile mill owners to revise the minimum wage of
the labourers.
   Gandhiji was a true economic and social reformer. He advocated the
use of charkha and khadi. He stressed the importance of cottage and very
small industries.
   Infact due to his efforts the face of Indian National Movement turns
from palaces to hunts, from urban areas or cities towards villages where
the real India resides. This was the greatest work of Gandhiji. This
converted the shape of National movement into a mass movement.

Ques3:-„The Quit India Movement was truly a mass movement‟. Justify
this statement.
   Ans:- Due to the failure of the Cripps mission, Gandhiji decided to
launch his third major movement against British rule. This was called
Quit India Movement. This was to be a mass struggle on non violent lines
under leadership of Gandhiji. But on the Next day of the approval of
India Quit Movement resolution. Gandhi and other main congress leaders
were arrested. But the younger activist organized demonstrations and
strike in factories, schools and colleges in all parts of the country.
Particularly active in the underground resistance were socialist members
of the congress such as Jaya Prakash Narain and Ram Manohar Lohia,
Aruna Asif Ali. In some areas such as Satara and Midnapur “Independent
governments were proclaimed. The movement took the form of a violent
  out break. The government succeeded in crushing the movement yet it
  took more than 12 months to suppress this rebellion.
       By Analysising above mentioned incidences it can be said that the
  Quit India Movement was truly a mass movement. It brought into its
  ambit hundreds of thousands of ordinary people. It brought the nationalist
  feelings among the youth to such a stage that the day was not far off
  when the British would have to Quit India.

                              Chapter 14
        Understanding Partitions- Politics, Memories

Q1.Examine the factors responsible for the growth of communalism in India.
Ans.    At the outset it must be admitted that in spite of strenuous efforts
       made by the congress leaders and rationalists, communalism could not
       be checked. Ultimately communalism won when India was partioned
       and Pakistan was created on the communalism theory of two nations.
       It may be stated that communalism grew on account of the „Divide
       and Rule‟ policy of the British. Jinnah was not the sole originator of
       this theory of two nations. The policy of „Divide and Rule‟
       encouraged Sir Syed Ahmed Khan to fight for the right of the
       Muslims. Lord Curzon in 1905 encouraged the Muslims when he
       divided Bengal and created a Muslim majority province. Iqbal in 1930
       also favored separate treatment to the Muslims. The Hindu
       Mahasabha established in 1916 also worked on communal lines
       following factors led to communalist tendencies.
       (1)   Divide and Rule Policy of the British.
       (2)     Fear of the Muslim minority of its Suppression the Hindu
       (3) Overemphasis on the glory of ancient India.
       (4)   Emergency of political parties on communal lines.
       (5)   Separate electorate for Muslims.

      (6)   Lack of education among the Muslim community.
      (7)   Frustration of the Muslim league on its inability to win election
            in 1937.

      (8) Demand for partition of India at the Lahore session of the Muslim
      league in 1940.
      (9) Direct Action by the Muslim league in 1946 and Communal riots.

Q2. Analyse the experiences of women from the partition?
Ans. The experiences of women in partition violent time were harrowing.
      Women were raped, abducted, sold, often many times over, forced to
      settle down to a new life with strangers in unknown circumstances.
      Deeply traumatised by all that they had undergone. Some began to
      develop, new family bonds in their changed circumstances. Their
      money and ornaments were looted. At times therefore when the men
      feared that their women wives, daughters, sisters, would be violated
      by the enemy they killed the women themselves.
Q3 Pointing upon the destruction or slaughter on Mass scale at the time of
partition ,compare Indian holocaust with Germany?

Ans. Because several hundred thousand people were killed and innumerable
      women raped and abducted. Millions were uprooted, transformed into
      refugees in alien lands. Estimate of casualties were 2,00,000 to
      50,00,000. In all probability, some 15 million had to move across
      hastily constructed frontiers separating India and Pakistan. Stripped of
      their local or regional cultures. They were forced to begin picking of
      their life from scratch. There fire partition is considered as holocaust.

      The Survivers themselves have often spoken of 1947 through other
      words like maashal (Martial law), mara-mari, raula or hullar.
      Though the people do not see any difference between the events of
      India and Germany . Afterall this much difference we find that in
      1947-48, the sub contitnent did not witness and state driven
      extermination as was the case with Nazi Germany where various
      model used. The ethnic cleansing That characterized the partition of
      India was carried out by self self styled representative of religious
      communities rather than by state agencies.

Q4 „The Partition of India was indispensable‟.Explain?
Ans. By the strength of Indian National Congress and power of mass
      movement ultimately British Government ready to free India in 1947.
      But freedom could given with the partition of India in two separate
      countries India and Pakistan. The causes for acceptance of the
      Independence with partition were as under:
      The British had been following a policy of creating feelings of
      bitterness among the different communities in India. This policy of
      Divide and Rule aimed to check the growth of Nationalism .When
      they failed in their objectives, they decided to divide the country and
      leave it.
      The attitude of Mr. Jinnah, the most prominent leader of the Muslim
      League, led to the partition of the country. Hepreached that the
      Hindus and Muslims were two separate nations. Hence they could not
      pull well together.
The British government followed the policy of appeasement towards the
      Muslims. They asked the Muslim League leaders to ask for more and

      more concession. They encouraged the Muslim to stress their demand
      for Pakistan.
The recommendation of the various mission sent by the British Government
      to solve the Indian Problem indirectly accepted the Muslim demand of
The failure of Interim Government also made the partition of t he country
      inevitable. In the absence of cooperation between the two major
      parties of the country, the Muslim League and the Congress , the
      Government could be run effectively.
Lastly we can say that willing of leaders for the freedom, Hindu Muslim
      Riots , it was essential the partition of India.

Ques.1 “The Resolution cast the horoscope of our Sovereign Democratic
Republic”. Prove this Statement.
Ans:- On December 13, 1946, Pandit Nehru described the objective
resolution as a „Solemn Pledge to our people‟. It gave expression to the
aspiration and ideals for which the people of India had worked and struggled
and embodied the broad objectives which the constituent assembly was to
set before itself.
       The resolution ensured that safeguards would be provided to the
minorities, backward and tribal areas, depressed and other classes. The
resolution proclaimed that the ancient land would attain its rightful and
honored place in the world. This republic would be a union of autonomous
units in which residuary powers should be with the latter.
       The Resolution also stated that the constitution framed by the
Assembly must guarantee and secure to all the people of India Justice-
social, economic and political; equality of      status, of opportunity and
equality before law; freedom of thoughts , expression, belief, faith, worship,
vocation, subject, association and action subject to law and public morality.
       Infact, all important elements had been included in the objective
resolution, constituent assembly had to frame the constitution by following
them: the Statement „The Resolution cast the horoscope of our sovereign
Democratic Republic”, given by Dr. K.M. Munshi seems to be true.

Ques.2:- Why Parliamentary system has been adopted in India? Is it relevant
Ans:- The Chief merit of Parliamentary government lay in its ability to
satisfy the essential test of a democratic Executive viz.. a combination of
stability and responsibility. In India when the poverty and illiteracy of the

masses might well encourage the growth of Executive Despotism,
Responsibility was no less important than stability.
         According to Dr. Ambedkar-under the parliamentary system there is
daily and periodic assessment of the responsibility of the Government.
         On the basis of the assessment of last 58 years, it can be said that to
include parliamentary system in our constitution was a positive and praisable
effort which has played an important role in the stability of Democracy in
Ques3:- How will you define the term „Secular‟? Is India a Secular state?
Ans:- The term secular means that the state has no Religion of its own. The
State is neither religious, nor anti religions. The state observes complete
neutrality in Religious matter on the basis of following given detail India can
be called a secular nation.
         In the Indian Constitution, the articles 25-28 of the right to freedom
of Religion have been granted to all persons residing in India. Accordingly
by all the persons are equally entitled to freedom of conscience. Indian
citizens are free to change their religion on their own will.
Ques 4: Analyse the Relevancy of emphasis on the need              of a strong
government by the constitute assembly.

Ans. The constituent Assembly was emphasizing that the powers of the
centre had to be greatly strengthened to enable it to stop the communal riots
because this might lead many partitions of India, a strong government was
also demanded because only this could plan (Government). Only a strong
centre could plan for a well being of the country, mobilised the available
economic resources, establish a proper administration and defend the
country from any foreign aggression.
      The chief reason for a strong centre was partition of India.That is why
emphsis on strong centre was being given instead of giving more autonomy
to the provinces. A strong demand for the need of centralization of the
powers was due to communal riots especially in Bengal and Punjab during
1946 – 1947.

      By observing contemporary circumstances it is clear that demand of a
strong government at centre was relevant
