India history and geogprahySource: archive.org: Personal and geographical names in the Gupta inscriptions
Rajshahi, Bogra and Dinajpur are districts possibly corresponding to the ancient Ḍavāka according to V. A. Smith. But as these districts were not actually incorporated in the Gupta dominions. Ḍavāka is a place-name without suffix and is mentioned in the Gupta inscription No. 1. 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.
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.
