The statement said that this period saw massive activity in art and engineering.

“Intricate stone carvings decorated large and tall temple complexes all around the country.  Literature developed through popular voice and there was strong activity in local regions in developing structured grammar and local cultural base,” the statement said.  “Vocal music and performing arts reached new heights with the fabrication and introduction of new musical instruments both in string and percussion.  Theory of aesthetics was created through analysis and academic compilation.”

Successful agriculture and good maritime exports made the country prosperous and there was constant traffic to the foreign lands, the statement said.

“Indian culture moved to China, Tibet and the Far East.  There were cultural influences in food, dress and style in people.  Indian craftsman took engineering to design and new products in wood, ivory and metals were produced in different parts of the country,” said the statement. “While religion moved more to human conduct and hospitality, Islamic invaders intruded into the territory to plunder and create terror.  Eventually they took residence in the country and managed to occupy the land.”
