Question 3 :

Why did the rajas of mahajanapadas build forts?

 

Answer :

The rajas of mahajanapadas built forts to defend their capital city from attacks by other rajas. It is also said that they wanted to show how rich and powerful they were by building large and powerful walls. The more practical reason could be that it was easier to govern fortified cities.


Question 4 :

In what ways are present-day elections different from the ways in which rulers were chosen in janapadas?

 

Answer :

In janapadas, men became ‘rajas’ by performing the Ashvamedha sacrifice. The rajas who let the Ashvamedha horse pass through their lands meant that they accepted the supremacy of the raja who wanted to perform the sacrifice.

In modern times, leaders are elected through a democratic system. Every citizen who is 18 years or older has the right to cast their vote. The candidates who win the majority of votes become the leaders.

 


Question 5 :

Were there any janapadas in your state? If yes, name them. If not, name the janapadas that would have been closest to your state, and mention whether they were to the east, west, north or south.

 

Answer :

The answer is subjective to the region and area you live in. Take the assistance of your subject teacher and the map given on page 57 in the textbook to prepare your answer.

Answer :

Out of the groups mentioned in answer 2, traders are the ones who pay taxes today.

 


Question 7 :

Find out whether the groups mentioned in answer 3 have voting rights.

 

Answer :

Today, voting rights are not decided by gender or profession. Women, ‘kammakaras’ and ‘dasas’ were not entitled to attend assemblies in the older days.
