The book Composite Culture - A Reappraisal deals with the mingling of external with the indigenous in different ways in the society. Our objective is to present a comprehensive picture of composite culture of medieval as well as modern India in its varied dimensions and perspectives. The immigrants from Central and West Asia from different cultural, social and political background started to began accommodating themselves to the customs and cultures of India. This mingling has the impact on the indigenous in varied ways in the realms of art, architecture, literature, music, social and political institutions and on technology etc. Akbar’s ideas and policies not only encouraged such admixture, but also much innovation as well. There was also a conscious effort to initiate inter-cultural communication through translations and the study of different religious and social traditions. The Mughal Empire thus further strengthened the concept of India as a multicultural country, with a preponderance of unifying features. The present book makes an attempt to highlight the precious legacy not only from the national integration point of view but the other aspects of the society also.
