Solution

Impact of the Religious / Bhakti Movement:

  • Vedic Hinduism was regenerated and thus saved from the onslaught of Islam.
  • The Islamic tenets – unity of God and universal brotherhood – emphasised by the saints promoted harmony and peace.
  • Bhakti was a movement of the common people; it used the language of the common people for its devotional literature.
  • Bhakti movement opened up space for Indian languages to grow.
  • It stimulated literary activity in regional languages.
  • What sustained Sanskrit, despite its decline during this period, was the support extended by the rulers of Hindu kingdoms.
  • Tamil was the only ancient Indian language remained vibrant during this period.
