You will have gathered from the foregoing that the inhabitants of Parkhead in those days were principally of the weaving class, and there were quite a number of highly respectable families among them. Among the oldest, if not the very oldest of them, was our own family, and as that is the main object of your interest, I shall try and tell you all I know of them. Much of what I may be able to tell you only came to me in a fragmentary manner, and is only of a traditionary character. Indeed he seems to have been a sort of aristocrat among his class, and as I have been told, was one of four who had a Parliamentary vote in the village, the then whole voting power of the district.
Literature The peoples of South Asia have had a continuous literature from the first appearance in the Punjab of a branch of the Indo-European-speaking peoples who also settled all of Europe and Iran.
In India this branch of Indo-Aryans, as they are usually called, met earlier inhabitants with different languages and no doubt a different culture—possibly a culture akin to that of the Indus Valley civilization, which had a script, and perhaps a literature of its own, of which nothing is known.
Certain to have been settled in India were peoples who spoke languages of Dravidian origin, as well as other languages, called Munda, now preserved only by aboriginal tribes, which show affinities with the languages of Southeast Asia.
The earliest literature is of a sacred character and dates from about bc in the form of the Rigveda.
The language of the Rigveda, which is a compilation of hymns to the high gods of the Aryan religion, is complex and archaic. This language is called Sanskrit Tongue Perfected.
Sanskrit has had a scarcely interrupted literature from about bc until today, but its greatest efflorescence was in the classical period, from the 1st to 7th centuries ad. In a further development of these dialects, the early beginnings can be seen of modern Indo-Aryan languages of northern India: Bengali also the language of BangladeshHindi the official language of the Republic of India sinceRajasthani, Punjabi, Gujarati, Marathi, Kashmiri, Oriya, Assamese, and Sindhi, each of which produced a literature of its own.
Their names are derived from the regions in which they are spoken, regions with uncertain boundaries, where the different dialects fused at the borders. They all retained a close family resemblance that made bilingualism easy and a fact of Indian literary life.
Far more marked was the difference between Indo-Aryan speech and the languages of the Dravidian family, which are structurally wholly different, though in time a measure of convergence took place.
Among them, the oldest recorded is Tamil, now the language of Tamil Nadu Madras state and of northern Sri Lanka, whose literature goes back to the early centuries of the Christian Era. In spite of this linguistic differentiation, the literatures composed in all of these languages reflect, in different degrees, the monumental influence of Sanskrit literatureSanskrit being the universal Indian language of culture.
This influence was one of both substance and form: Campbased on Hindi; Urdu was the lingua franca of the army. Urdu was used later for literature and at present is the mother tongue of most Indian Muslims and their brethren in Pakistan.
Its influence, however, does not compare with that of Sanskrit. Comparable to the impact of Sanskrit, but far more alien, is that of Englishwhich began to assert itself in the 18th century.
The language brought with it new literary forms that were gradually adapted to the old ones, producing new genres—without necessarily giving up the older ones—in the local languages and giving rise to an interesting literature in the English language.
Once more, a universal cultural language to a large extent unified aims in the scattered languages; English still plays this role, though it appears to be slowly declining. Not literary but religious-magical in its purposes, it is mostly a compilation of hymns, dedicated to a number of gods of the Vedic religion.
They have the regular structure of an invocation:Synopsis: A story of abject subjugation and extreme fetishism chillingly described through the eyes of the sadistic lesbian Dr Sabirah Najwa, a clinical and behavioral psychologist.
