Survey of the Vedic Literature and Dharmashastra from Dharmasutras (600 B.C.) to main Smrities and their commentaries (1100 A.D.) at least 17 hundred years literature has been the very first and basic material for analyses. Analytical approach and original Sanskrit textual Studies is the basis of the book. Scanning of vast Dharmashastra literature from Gautama to Vijnanesvara forms the foundation of the publication.For the purpose of a systematic representation, the book comprises of nine chapters. The first and the second chapters aim at laying the foundation by studying the concept of Untouchability in Primitive and Ancient societies respectively.
