India history and geogprahy
Kumārāmātya (कुमारामात्य) is not an ordinary amātya but an amātya who is entitled in court etiquette to the honour and dignity of Kumāra or prince of the royal blood. This designation distinguishes him from an ordinary amātya or minister on the one hand and from a Kumāra or Prince on the other. That there were officers called simply Amātya is known from many seals found at Bhīṭā. But Kumārāmātya was an amātya par excellence and could therefore be attached to the king or the crown-prince(Source): What is India: Inscriptions of the Early Gupta Kings
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.
