Report No. 66

3.23. Social position in general during fourth period.-

Reverting to the social aspect, we may state that although the social position of women declined in this period, there were bright exceptions. Women excelled in several pursuits. In the Mithila school, for example, there is a work called Vivada Chandra (and also other treatises) by a woman Lakshmi Devi, who wrote under the name of her nephew 'Misaru Mistra'1. It was written in the 18th century2.
