An Analysis Upon Cultural Aspects of Arts In Indian Subcontinent |
The cultural evolution of India during the British period."Culture" is a difficult word to define, but I have taken it in thebroadest sense, to include all those movements which have to do with a people'smind and its social organisation. Manners and morals, journalism andliterature, education and public life, the transformation of religious andsocial ideas, economics, art and industry, and finally, politics in so far asthey deal with formative ideas rather than controversial facts, will all claimour attention. But all these matters must be placed in due proportion. Here weare not writing political or literary or religious or social history, or thehistory of education or journalism, art, economics, or industry. We are takinga bird's-eye view of the forces which are moulding our culture.
