India history and geography
Common People in Kashmir under Lalitaditya and strong rulers like him apparently did not differ in essential respects from serfdom. The machiavellian principle of government recommended by that king in the eighth century was as follows: “Action should be taken repeatedly so that the people in the villages should not possess grain for consumption and bullocks for the area of the fields in excess of annual requirements”. “For, if they were to have excessive wealth, they might become very terrible Damaras in a single year able to violate the authority of the king”. While the courtiers had “fried meats” and “delightful light wine cooled with ice and perfumed with flowers”, the food of the common people was, as it still remains, rice and hakh (Sanskrit: shaka).
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as mythology, zoology, 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.
