FTV News, Lincoln: India Discovery Center is pleased to announce their next seminar in the series “Let us explore the Cultural History of India.” The fourth event entitled “Seminar on the Golden Period, 200BC-500AD” is scheduled on Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 9:30 AM to 4 PM at Bemis Hall in Lincoln,MA. The period is important not because of the overall prosperity in the land, but the manifold manifestation of the creative efforts in art, music, dance, language, literature, medicine, mathematics and astronomy. Indian Union was established and the administrative protocol conceived by statesman/scientist Kautilya helped create social integration the country. Philosophical theories championed freedom of speech and freedom of work. Buddhism preached social harmony while Jainism preached the concept of mutual respect. The role of each social group and that of the King to maintain a productive labor force was established and practiced. The grass-root resolution of social conflicts enabled people of various faiths and opinions to inhabit peacefully in a village. The village developed into a self-sustained economic unit of the country. Thus, the period formed the foundation of India’s political and economic system.
