About the Book

Two important historical events occurred that significantly influenced the course of Indian Manufacturing happened from c.1500 of the Christian era. One was the entry of European merchants through sea route pioneered by Vasco-da-Gama in c.1498, and the other was the beginning of the Mughal Empire in c.1526. These two events provided necessary and sufficient conditions for the emergence of traditional flexible manufacturing in India. These were also two intertwined episodes of globalization that performed vital role in determining the pattern of growth of the Indian manufacturing. The Mughal Empire created an integrated economy of continental size whereas European trading companies expanded the commercial connectivity of the Indian economy to Europe and South and South East Asia. This book is the outcome of my intellectual journey thus far.
