Description

The Kathasaritsagara has been classed with the two great epics of India by world-renowned indologists and sanskritists. Since the Kathasaritsagara, a text of the 11th c AD, is based on the Brhatkatha, a work of the 1st c AD, there was a problem regarding the period of the Indian society depicted in it.

The author has proved that the Kathasaritsagara depicts the society of early medieval India, that is, the post-Gupta and pre-muslim period of Indian history.
