1. Ans. Inscriptions are a vital means of reconstructing and understanding history, but however have both advantages and disadvantages that are enumerated below
Disadvantages of inscriptional evidence (Pg. 48 & 49)
EG : Ashoka is referred to as Devanampiya Piyadassi (Beloved of the gods). Only the inscription at Maski identified Ashoka by name, and hence it became evident that Devanampiya Piyadassi was a title Ashoka held.
Advantages of inscriptional evidence
EG : Inscriptions on the railings and pillars of stupas record contributions made by ivory workers, bhikkus, bhikkunis and other such people towards the building of the stupa. (PG 96)
EG : A rock inscription at Girnar speaks of how the Shaka ruler, Rudradarman repaired the Sudarshna lake.
Rudradarman of the Shaka clan, was regarded as a mlechcha (barbarian or outsider) by the Brahmanas, yet rebuilt the lake, suggesting that powerful mlechchas were familiar with Sanskritic traditions.
