ABSTRACT:
The paper studies the regional history under which it has been tried to find how an ideology helps in the formation of a state and gradually ideology builds an identity in its parallel line, then how it takes the form of a cultural entity. In this context, my study focuses on the Mithila region and it has been tried to understand that, during the medieval period, how the contemporary Maithil scholars started writing commentaries on the Dharamsāstras and Smritis and the rule and regulations described in it were placed prominently in their literatures. It is also important to know that how the intellectual class of Mithila and their literatures were helpful in the formation of a state and what was the attitude of the ruling class to this intellectual class. Besides, these scholars had presented ideal examples on the basis of the code of conduct described in the Dharamsāstras and were they ever been brought into practice. Suppose that if they were brought to practice in practical life, then what type of the mechanism would have been used for its implementation in the society.
