Two strategies adopted by Brahmanas for enforcing the norms prescribed for different varnas were:
1. One, to assert that the varna order was of divine origin.
2. Second, they advised kings to ensure that these norms were followed within their kingdoms.

Explain the teaching f jainism and buddhaism and bright the impact an indian society
  • 1 answers

Gaurav Seth 1 week, 1 day ago

The most important idea in Jainism is that the entire world is animated: even stones, rocks and water have life. Non-injury to living beings, especially to humans, animals, plants and insects, is central to Jaina philosophy. In fact the principle of ahimsa, emphasised within Jainism, has left its mark on Indian thinking as a whole. According to Jaina teachings, the cycle of birth and rebirth is shaped through karma. Asceticism and penance are required to free oneself from the cycle of karma. This can be achieved only by renouncing the world; therefore, monastic existence is a necessary condition of salvation.

The mauryan empire was a very vast empire it was extened from modern afganisthan to remote area of south or karnatka, in west from gujarat to bihar-bengal in the east. For political control, military mobilisation, peoples movement both type of communication land as well as riverine routes were very useful. The administrative centre of mauryan empire were carefully chosen . Both taxila and ujjayni situated on inportant long distant trade routes. Hence, communication along both land and riverine routes was vital for the existence of mauryan empire.
List the items of food available to people in harappan cities
  • 1 answers

Gaurav Seth 1 week, 2 days ago

I. The following items of food were available to the people in Harappan cities:

1. Grains such as wheat, barley, lentil, chickpea and sesame, Millets (found from sites in Gujarat), Rice (although its find is very rare). etc.

2. Meat of cattle, sheep, goat, buffalo, pig.

3. Meat of wild species like deer, boar, gharial etc.

4. Plants and their products.

II. Identification of groups who would have provided the items of food:

1. Farmers would have provided the grains.

2. As cattle , sheep, goat, buffalo etc were domesticated Harappans themselves would have provided the meat.

3. Regarding the meat of wild species of animals we are not sure how Harappans procured it but we can guess that it could be either hunting communities or most probably some of the Harappans themselves hunted the different animals.

4.  For plants and their products Harappan themselves would have gathered it.

What was Cunningham's confusion?
  • 1 answers

Gaurav Seth 1 week, 6 days ago

Cunningham’s Confusion were:

(i) Cunningham’s main interest was in the archaeology of the Early Historic and later periods. Cunningham tried to place Harappan seals within the time-frame with which he was familiar.

(ii) He used the accounts left by Chinese Buddhist pilgrims who had visited the subcontinent between the fourth and seventh centuries CE to locate early settlement.

(iii) Cunningham also collected, documented and translated inscriptions found during his surveys. When he excavated sites he tended to recover artefacts that he thought had cultural value.

(iv) A site like Harappa which was not part of the itinerary of the Chinese pilgrims, did not fit very neatly within his framework of investigation. Cunningham did not realize how old Harappa artifacts were.
