Periods of Indian History
Indian history, just like any other country, is divided into three main periods, which are as follows:
- Ancient India - This period of Indian history was initially composed of the Vedic society. The political organization moved along the concept of Mahajanpadas. It also included many famous dynasties such as the Mauryans, Guptas, Pallavas and Cholas. This period of history introduces India's early agriculture and culture.
- Medieval India - This period witnessed the invasion of India by the Islamic dynasties. The medieval period of Indian history experienced the domination of the Sultanates and Mughals. This also led to many good developments from religion, art and architectural point of view.
- Modern India - This period majorly talks about the struggle of India for independence from British rule and eventually becoming a free democratic country.
