India history and geographySource: What is India: Inscriptions of the Śilāhāras
1) Tailapa (तैलप) is mentioned as overthrowing the Rāṣṭrakūṭa dynasty, according to the Paṭṭaṇakuḍi plates of Avasara II.—“When the lofty sprout of the wish-fulfilling tree in the form of the illustrious Rāṣṭrakūṭa family, Baddigadeva by name, could not grow unfortunately under the heavy load of a huge mountain in the form of the illustrious Tailapa”.
These copper plates (mentioning Tailapa) were obtained from Tonappa Parisa Upadhye, the priest of the Jain basti of Paṭṭaṇakudi, who claims that they have been preserved as heirloom in his family. The inscription refers itself to the reign of the Śilāra (i.e. Śilāhāra) king Avasara II, ruling from Balinagara. The inscription is dated in the expired Śaka year 910 (expressed in words), the cyclic year being Sarvadhārin, on Monday, the fifth tithi of the bright fortnight of Kārttika.
2) Tailapa (तैलप) of the Cālukya line of kings is mentioned in the Paṭṭaṇakuḍi plates of Avasara II.—“Having vanquished Kakkala in battle, Tailapa became king, looking resplendent in the Cālukya family—a lion to the elephants in the form of his enemies. His son is the well-known king Satyāśraya, fond of vanquishing his enemies, courageous by nature, and distinguished for his sole delight in valour”.
These copper plates (mentioning Tailapa) were found by a Brāhmaṇa of Khārepāṭan, a town in the Devagaḍ tālukā of the Ratnāgiri District. The inscription refers itself to the reign of the Śilāra king, Māṇḍalika Raṭṭarāja. As his predecessors were loyal feudatories of the Rāṣṭrakūṭas, it gives first the genealogy of that family from Dantidurga to Kakkala. The inscription is dated, in lines 41-42, on the full-moon tithi of Jyeṣṭha in the śaka year 930, the cyclic year being Kīlaka.
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.

Sanskrit, also spelled संस्कृतम् (saṃskṛtam), is an ancient language of India commonly seen as the grandmother of the Indo-European language family (even English!). Closely allied with Prakrit and Pali, Sanskrit is more exhaustive in both grammar and terms and has the most extensive collection of literature in the world, greatly surpassing its sister-languages Greek and Latin.
