Vivah Sikhya

Description This exhaustive study of Indian people and their historical past written by a British missionary during his stay in India in the eighteenth century during the British colonial rule is a goldmine of general knowledge about India. Despite its religions bias, it is a scholarly work enlisting the dominant Dravidian and Aryan races and their ancient customs and ceremonies. It goes on to study the influence of Hinduism Islam and Christianity on the India people in the chronological order? It makes a detailed study of Hindu beliefs in Vedas, Idolatry, Trinity of Hindu Gods, Caste system and social divisions, and impact of Islam. The book also records the contribution of British governance of India, spread of education, social reforms and influence of Christianity on India people and society. It is, undoubtedly, a unique collection of critical observations of a foreign scholar on Indian life.[edit]
