  1. To consider the village as a ‘little republic’ is incorrect because the king performed a number of functions in relation to the village like building some roads and canals, providing protection from thugs and marauding troops and being the final authority for settling disputes regarding caste rank.
  2. The villages in pre-British India were not passive in their relation to the State .
  3. They were certainly concerned about who sat on the throne.
  4. The villages were not helpless in their relationship with rulers.
  5. They would rebel against a bad king and provide help to a ruler who belonged to their caste.
