Ayodhya, situated on the banks of Sarayu river, for some, may just be a piece of land, but millions of Hindus living across the world consider it, being the birthplace of Lord Rama, the gate of the paradise from which the Lord himself and many other sages passed through to go to the sea of divinity. Ramajanmabhumi is the playground of Lord Rama -- the avatara of Lord Vishnu. The dream of Ramarajya, an ideal adopted by the 20th century yug-purusha Mahatma Gandhi, came into existence from Ayodhya only. The history of Ayodhya is very ancient and controversial.

Books on eighteenth-century Bengal talk of how the economy declined when the British took over the revenue administration. This volume is different from other books written on this period because it breaks away from the well-trodden path of eighteenth-century historiography that looks at the period as one that saw a general decline. It explores the major components of the distributive economic networks of markets, overland and riverine communication systems and consumption. It analyses their interaction with the state, both during the Nizamat and the early years of the rule of the English Eas... View more info
