Question 47
Read the following passage carefully and choose the correct answer of the questions that follow (Q. No. 47-50): The position of women in the social structure is often marginalized in most modern writings pertaining to the period under study. However, that woman did enjoy an important place in Vengi Chalukyan society is known to us from their visibility as patrons and their involvement in different socio-religious and cultural activities during this period. A glimpse into the inscription of the Vengi Chalukyas, shows that women during this period did not really conform to orthodox rules, but enjoyed considerable freedom in disposing off their personal property (stridhana), which they inherited from their parents at the time of their marriage. The Chimbuluru grant of Gunaga Vijayaditya III refers to his wife Chella or Challaka as the donor of the village Chimbulur to a brahmana. The Kaluchumbarru grant of Amma II on the other hand, referes to his wife Chamekamba as having donated the village Kaluchumbarru to a Jain teacher Arhanandin. In the Musinikonda inscription of Vishnuvardhana III, Ayyana Mahadevi, wife of Kubja Vishnuvardhana I, is mentioned as the writer and executor of the charter, exhibiting her literary skills. These instances throw considerable light on the enhanced social position and the nature of their property rights that they enjoyed. Further, these examples also show how women as patrons exercised ‘control’ over their wealth, its disposal and the power and prestige they partook in, as owner of their property, with in the socio- economic structure of the Period and cultural significance that was attached to the patronization of different religious groups that provided them with social identity. The better position of women in Vengi Chalukyan period is visible in

Read the following passage carefully and choose the correct answer of the questions that follow (Q.37 to 40): The decline of the early Andhra economy began from the time of the Later Satavahanas, particularly from the time of Vasishthiputra Pulumavi, when the Satavahanas lost control over the western Deccan ports. As a result, the flow of merchandise from the east to the west began to slow down. Consequent to the decline of internal trade and revenue, the successors of the Satavahanas were forced to concentrate and for State power. So the economy was ruralized and the pressure on land multiplied. The fact is corroborated by the non-availability of evidence about a flourishing industry in the excavations of Nagarjunakonda or its neighbourhood. Realizing the necessary of promoting agriculture, Vasishtiputra Sri Chantamula donated several hundreds of thousands of ploughs, cattle and gold. Sri Chantamula, or his successors, also took measures to tackle the water problem. In the Nagarjunakonda excavations, at sites 42 and 66, several bunds to control rain water for irrigation purposes have come to light.
