Early Indian Feudal Society and its Culture is based on the early Indian period which saw the “origin and growth of feudalism.” This book does not claim to present a general history of early India in the traditional manner, but the distinctive characteristic of this book lies in the fact that it presents a synthesis of social, economic and cultural history of early India. Early India created a rich and varied culture and in this period many Indian literary languages were formed. At this time major literary
and cultural similarities began to unite people of different religions and languages, as can be seen in the oral tradition and cultural life of the people living then. The purpose of studying the early India is not simply to learn what it was like, but to have a better understanding of the present-day India through investigation into our ancient roots. The history of early India is the history of bitter conflict between peasants and feudal lords. Early Indian Ages were not only a time of conservatism and ignorance, casteism, victimization of Sudras and feudal brutality, but also were a time of great cultural achievement in which magnificent works of literature, art and architecture were created as a fine testimony to the creative genius of the people.
