Central India comprising of Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh was a playground of political forces during the early medieval period on account of the rule of powerful dynasties like the Pratiharas, Rastrakuta, Paramaras, Kalachuris, Candellas, Kacchapaghatas, Yajvapalas, Nagas of Bastar, etc. Each of these dynasties played a dominant role in shaping the political history not only the region over which they ruled, but northern, eastern, western and southern India where they often carried on raids and established their supremacy. Their conquests were carried as far as Bengal and Orissa in the east, Gujarat in the west, Kashmir in the north and Karnataka in the south. Also their cultural achievements in the field or Art, Literature, Religion and Society were immense. All these were possible only on account of sound policies the rulers followed and achieved them through the thoughts of ancient Indian political thinkers.
