HOW IMPORTANT ARE THE DATES ?
The earliest authenticated human remains in South Asia date to about 30,000 years ago. Nearly contemporaneous Mesolithic rock art sites have been found in many parts of the Indian subcontinent, including at the Bhimbetka rock shelters in Madhya Pradesh. Around 7000 BCE, the first known Neolithic settlements appeared on the subcontinent in Mehrgarh and other sites in western Pakistan. These gradually developed into the Indus Valley Civilisation, the first urban culture in South Asia; It flourished during 26001900BCE in Pakistan and western India. Centred on cities such as Mohenjo-daro, Harappa, Dholavira, and Kalibangan, and relying on varied forms of subsistence, the civilisation engaged robustly in crafts production and wide-ranging trade.
In the late Vedic period, around the 6th century BCE, the small states and chiefdoms of the Ganges Plain and the north-western regions had consolidated into 16 major oligarchies and monarchies that were known as the mahajanapadas. The emerging urbanisation and the orthodoxies of this age also created heterodox religious movements, two of which became independent religions. Buddhism, based on the teachings of Gautama Buddha attracted followers from all social classes excepting the middle class; chronicling the life of the Buddha was central to the beginnings of recorded history in India. Jainism came into prominence during the life of its exemplar, Mahavira. In an age of increasing urban wealth, both religions held up renunciation as an ideal, and both established long-lasting monastic traditions. Politically, by the 3rd century BCE, the kingdom of Magadha had annexed or reduced other states to emerge as the Mauryan Empire. The empire was once thought to have controlled most of the subcontinent excepting the far south, but its core regions are now thought to have been separated by large autonomous areas. The Mauryan kings are known as much for their empire-building and determined management of public life as for Ashoka's renunciation of militarism and far-flung advocacy of the Buddhist dhamma.

How do we periodise?In 1817, James Mill, a Scottish economist and politicalphilosopher, published a massive three-volume work,A History of Br i t ish India. In this he divided Indianhistory into three periods – Hindu, Muslim and British.This per iodisat ion came to be widely ac cepted. Canyou think of any problem with this way of looking atIndian history?Wh y d o we t r y a n d d i v i d e h i s t o r y i n t o d i f f e r e n tp e r i o d s ? We d o s o i n a n a t t e m p t t o c a p t u r e t h echaracteristics of a time, its central features as theyappear to us. So the terms through which we periodise– that is, demarcate the difference between periods –become important. They reflect our ideas about the past.They show how we see the significance of the changefrom one period to the next.Mill thought that all Asian societies were at a lowerlevel of civilisation than Europe. According to his tellingof history, before the British came to India, Hindu andMuslim despots ruled the country. Religious intolerance,caste taboos and superst i t ious prac t i ces dominated social life. British rule, Mill felt, could civilise India. To dothis it was necessary to introduce European manners, arts,institutions and laws in India. Mill, in fact, suggested thatthe British should conquer all the territories in India to ensurethe enlightenment and happiness of the Indian people. ForIndia was not capable of progress without British help.In this idea of history, British rule represented all the forcesof progress and civilisation. The period before British rulewas one of darkness. Can such a conception be accepted today?In any case, can we refer to any period of history as “Hindu”or “Muslim”? Did not a variety of faiths exist simultaneouslyin these periods? Why should we characterise an age onlythrough the religion of the rulers of the time? To do so is tosuggest that the l ives and prac t i ces of the others do notreally matter. We should also remember that even rulers inancient India did not all share the same faith.Moving away from British classification, historians haveusually divided Indian history into ‘ancient’, ‘medieval’ and‘ m o d e r n ’ . T h i s d i v i s i o n t o o h a s i t s p r o b l e m s . I t i s ap e r i o d i s a t i o n t h a t i s b o r rowe d f rom t h e We s t wh e re t h emodern period was associated with the growth of all theforces of modernity – science, reason, democracy, liberty andequality. Medieval was a term used to describe a societywhere these features of modern society did not exist. Can weuncritically accept this characterisation of the modern periodto describe the period of our study? As you will see in thisbook, under British rule people did not have equality, freedomo r l i b e r t y . N o r w a s t h e p e r i o d o n e o f e c o n o m i c g r o w t hand progress.Many historians therefore refer to this period as ‘colonial’
