India history and geogprahySource: archive.org: Personal and geographical names in the Gupta inscriptions
Daṇḍapuṣkiṇī (दण्डपुष्किणी) is a place-name classified as a puṣkariṇī and mentioned in the Gupta inscription No. 52. The Gupta empire (r. 3rd-century CE), founded by Śrī Gupta, covered much of ancient India and embraced the Dharmic religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Though the reading is Daṇḍapuṣkiṇī, it is to be corrected as Daṇḍapuṣkariṇī. Daṇḍa meaning punishment or rod seems to be a personal name here and the puṣkariṇī was named after him or else it may have been in his possession.
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.
