Foreword of Aarohan Ancient and Medieval History,Art and Culture By Nihal Singh



If given a chance to travel back in time, most people will still skip paying any attention to their History lectures in School. We think that it only concerns Historians, Scholars, would be teachers and madmen and Civil Services
aspirants. A majority are content with the mythological History fed to them on a platter with a fair sprinkling of twisted facts and interesting; albeit idiotic explanations of the present structure of our society. On the other end of the
spectrum are the followers of self-proclaimed saviours of Indian society- both seculars and fundamentalists, who take History too seriously in order to gather counter-information to each other’s beliefs. It is a well established
notion that the people in general and the administrators in particular should be aware of our society’s past so that we know as to who we really are and
what our people’s expectations are now. Knowing the past and present, we can very well steer the course of the future of a society. Here, I am using the word society instead of country, because society is what travels through the
past to reach to the present and will eventually be the future. Country’s may come and go but the society remains and so do its people.

History of Rajasthan is special because of it being a buffer zone between the Brahmanical society- interspersed with a fair share of other philosophies and beliefs- and the ever emerging military powers and societal forces from
Central Asia, Middle East and Far-East. Even before the rise of Islam in 7th century AD, Rajasthan was a constant battleground for forces trying to get a hold on the cradle of civilization itself. Rajasthan was a major centre of many
pre-Harappan and Harappan civilizations. What is even more invigorating is the way it maintained its status quo as the Gateway to India, till the naval age came. All this when the rivers that fed it once, had either gone dry or
changed their courses and now 60% of the geographical area of the state is nothing but endless stretch of sand dunes.

Anyone who knows India even slightly, immediately recognises Rajasthan as the land of bright colours in contrast to its monotonous sandy landscape; the
ship of the desert sailing in the backdrop of a beautiful sunset; the
moustached, headgear sporting progeny of the former Rajput warriors- everroud of their legacy, the haunting music of years bygone that venerates the valour and love stories of the former masters of Rajputana. But, is this it?
Have we rediscovered our past completely or something is still there which may hold the key to our progress and a bright future?


Apart from trying to find answers to these questions, we will also try to find the reason behind the mellowness of these freedom loving people in front of a central power time and again and how the people of Rajputana belonging
to so many princely states, eagerly turned themselves into a democracy of sorts, at the stroke of the midnight. Unlike British India, where people enjoyed certain privileges of a democratic setup and Congress and other
organisations worked relentlessly to make people politically aware, people of Rjputana states didn’t even got 10 years of public dissonance, outcry, opinion building, experimental administrative reforms, hooliganism,
morchas, protests, Satygraha and cadre building.


During the course of knowing answers to these questions, we will also discover the origin of the society of Rajasthan, its distinctive cultural heritage and historically where we went wrong to find ourselves at the bottom of
most human development indexes, a fragmented society on the lines of caste, class, sex, residence etc. Even if we are not able to pinpoint a specific theme, we surely can find a better way to deal with and initiate changes into
the lives of the proud but poor people of Rajasthan.
