Bengal.—The Indian education system had such resilience that it continued to function till the pre-colonial age. British administrators documented the wide network of schools and institutions of higher learning in various parts of India. These records reveal that in Bengal and Bihar alone, indigenous village schools numbered between 100,000 to 150,000.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
