This book seeks to unravel the nexus between the city and the villages in India, and the mechanics of it, on the basis of the archaeological evidence in the form of excavations, field studies and analyses of the data related to them, in a manner that its own heritage, both traditional and materialistic, is exemplified. Amply diversified by a variety of charts and maps, besides photographic illustrations, an in-depth analysis of the process that has gone into the making of the panorama of Indian countryside is presented in seven and more chapters, bringing out the main thrusts in the argument. The geopolitical, intellectual, economic and other strains of the sociocultural spectrum of India is woven into a plausible fabric which we own ³ with its strength and weakness ³ as our cultural mantle.
