The ‘Punjab’ of this book is a metaphor for the geographical region sur¬rounded by the Himalayas, the Great Indian Desert, the Aravali hills and the river Jamuna. During a period of about 4000 years up to AD 1000, the cultural boundaries of this region did not coincide with its geographical boundaries and there were sub-regional differences as well. There was a great deal of interaction with the outside world and between sub-regions. The socio-cultural dynamics of the region are well reflected in the different periods of its history.
