India history and geography
Ships or Boats were commonly employed for Sea-voyages in ancient India (known in Prakrit as: jattā, or Sanskrit: yātrā), and was vividly depicted in the Kathās (narrative poems) such as Uddyotanasūri in his 8th-century Kuvalayamālā (a Prakrit Campū, similar to Kāvya poetry).—Details of preparation for sea-voyage are given which include the following items relating to preparatory ritual and the equipment of the ship: [e.g., arrangement of boats or ships;] [...]. When the ship was to take off auspicious musical instruments were sounded, conch-shells were blown, auspicious songs were sung, Brahmins muttered the āsīsā; and thus in the sound of invocation and jaya jaya the ship took off its voyage, the sails were unfurled, the ropes and riggings were pulled up, the oars began to be operated, the helmsman took observations, the ship fell into its course, favourable winds began to blow: thus the ship started its journey being tossed on the high sea waves.
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.
