About the book:

he book deals with the image of "man" that was posited in the medieval  period when north Indian society was beset with crisis due to the internal  conflict of sectarian ideologies as well as the onslaught of the Islamic  politico-religious power. This state of socio-cultural and political  situation was perceived by Vidyapati, a great poet and statesman of Mithila  (north eastern part of Bihar) in the late fourteenth and early fifteenth  century. He recognized the significance of such socio-political and  religious issues as "what is man'", "what is manliness'", "what is  dharma'", etc., in a situation of multi-religious social and political of  multi-religious social and political order. There is no space for  jati/varna/kula in the sturucture of man presented by him. Purusa Pariksa  presents his reflections on the crisis of his society in which the  followers of Vedic or Sanatana dharma had begun to identify themselves as  "Hindu". The book conveys his cocio-political perspective that still  appears to be relevant to the issues of national regeneration and  development.
