This book presents the socio-cultural life of ancient India on the basis of data drawn form the Carakasamhita. Indian religious as well as secular literature and Greek and Chinese accounts are utilized for corroborative data.

Thus a convincing picture of ancient Indian life has been constructed, in which the facts noticed in Caraka are given critical analysis, interpretation and assessment for their historical value.
