 DESCRIPTION
spacer

The study of the economy of ancient Indian through Sanskrit inscriptions is a Herculean task. Till date, several works are available on research done on arts, religious philosophy, history and language through inscriptions but very little has been attempted in the field of economic studies based on Sanskrit epigraphs. Dr. Kamala Kishore Mishra is the first person to traverse this unchartered terrain.

This work details fourteen tables, bibliography, table of terminologies, list of inscriptions and plates of 122 inscriptions, which throw valuable light on the practices of ancient India. For example, from the copper plate inscription from Sahgaura, there is evidence of storage of grain in silos for meeting the needs in crucial times of scarcity and is an effort in risk management. The Mandsaur inscription throws light on the relative affluence and well being of the people of the area who contributed towards construction of temples and wells. The Girnar stone inscription of Rudradaman speaks of the construction of a large pond or lake to take care of water scarcity. Inscriptions also seem to throw light on a well balanced decentralization of powers that contributed to governance of the state. Self sufficiency at village level and at various other levels also seems to emerge from a study of the inscriptions and there is a definite indication towards economic prosperity of the sub-continent in eighth century AD.
