Early Historical Period : MAGADHAN IMPERIALISM

MAGADHAN IMPERIALISM

The kingdom of Magadha was destined to play a prominent role in the viable and fluid political spectrum that existed in the sixth century sc. Embracing the modem districts of Patna and Gaya and occupying a strategic position between the upper and the lower parts of the Gangetic plain, the kingdom of Magadha provided a happy ground for commingling of Kikatas and other non-Aryans with fighting and priestly clans of the Ary­ans. The fusion of the races produced not only mighty warriors who harried the greater part of the subcon­tinent, but also generated a catholic outlook among the people who played a glorious part in the evolution of a universal religion. The preeminence of Magadha in the Indian political firmament owed not a little to a highly efficient system of government.
