The Educational Heritage of Ancient India

Just a thousand years ago, India was dotted with universities across its length and breadth, where international students flocked to gain credentials in advanced education. This illustrated book describes how these multi-disciplinary centers of learning existed in several forms such as forest universities, brick-and-mortar universities and temple universities. It examines the funding for these citadels of learning and their graduation ceremonies. The process by which India’s ancient systems of education helped to fuel a knowledge revolution around the world with its manuscripts, forming the basis for monographs and academic papers, is explained with references. The marauding incursions by Muslim invaders, which disrupted the idyllic world of university learning in India, followed by European colonization, which led to further erosion and degeneration of India’s traditional learning systems, have been taken up in some detail. Readers will get a snapshot view of India's education system down the ages from ancient to modern times.

History of Education in India

"The work traces the genesis and the growth of education in India through various socio-economic and political changes over a period of 5,000 years from 3000 B.C. to 1999 A.D. In ancient India, education, which emerged out of the Indian religious scriptures, contributed most to the development of a prosperous civilization and culture in the sub-continent. In medieval times the Muslim rulers replaced the existing systems of education by introducing their own education to meet the growing needs of a Muslim administration and of a Muslim community. And, when the British replaced the Muslims as rulers, they also instituted their own system of education to meet imperial requirements. The Hindu learning, which survived in the bordering Hindu kingdoms in medieval India, almost perished under the impact of Western learning. However, the Western education gave birth to a group of enlightened Indians who were able to free India from alien rule and since 1947 began to administer the country with the educational ideas and institutions left by the British, and despite occasional attempts by them to adjust the colonial system of education to Indian conditions, the hopes and aspirations of the nascent Indian nation remained unfulfilled and became further aggravated by the globalization of the Indian market in the last decade of twentieth century. Based on a careful and meticulous use of religious scriptures in ancient India to contemporary Persian work in medieval India, and of archival sources and private papers in modern India, the book is deemed to be the first authentic and comprehensive account of history of education in India."

Ancient India

This is a comprehensive, intelligible and interesting portrait of Ancient Indian History and Civilization from a national historical point of view. The work is divided into three broad divisions of the natural course of cultural development in Ancient India: (1) From the prehistoric age to 600 B.C., (2) From 600 B.C. to 300 A.D., (3) From 300 A.D. to 1200 A.D. The work describes the political, economic, religious and cultural conditions of the country, the expansionist activities, the colonisation schemes of her rulers in the Far East. Political theories and administrative organizations are also discussed but more stress has been laid on the religious, literary and cultural aspects of Ancient India. The book is of a more advanced type. It would meet the needs not only of general readers but also of earnest students who require a thorough grasp of the essential facts and features before taking up specialized study in any branch of the subject. It would also fulfil requirements of the candidates for competitive examinations in which Ancient Indian History and culture is a prescribed subject.

A Brief History of Physical Education in India  New Edition

This is the first book of its kind on this subject and indeed a very praiseworthy attempt in writing a 'History of Physical Education' in our country. In this small volume Mr. Rajagopalan has covered vast stretches of the periods of Indian history and in presenting the material has tried to deal with the physical activities, sports, games, pastimes of the rulers, their military conquests as well as general education contemplated for the people. The food habits and general rules connected with health and sanitation are also referred to. The essential stress of Physical Education as a part of overall general education has been maintained all through. Set in the background of Indian culture, history and education, this book exemplifies the fact that Physical Education formed an integral part of Indian culture and civilization. Considerable study and hard work have gone into this small volume and I am sure it would stimulate some good thinking on the part of the students and teachers of Physical Education in this country. With its vast field of interest, it should be of appeal to lay readers too.
