Abstract:As a historian she has tired to bring to the fore the day today life of the ancient and medieval people of Karnataka. She calls it as a live history in which she delves deep in the social aspect of ancient and medieval period of history to understand people’s food habits, dress, ornaments, education, entertainment, sports etc. Her source materials are Sanskrit and Kannada literature corroborated by the paintings and carvings on stone as well as wooden sculptures in the temples and hero stones. She insists that social history could be made into a purposeful living history to understand about our ancestors and their achievements. Just like how the scientists use living fossils for their study the social scientists can make use of our living traditions for the further study of human beings insists the author.
