How did vernacular novels become a valuable source of information on native life and
customs?
Answer:

  • Such information was useful for Britishers in governing Indian society, with its large variety of communities and castes.
  • As outsiders, the British knew little about life inside Indian households. The new novels in Indian languages often had descriptions of domestic life.
  • They showed how people dressed their forms of religious worship, their beliefs and practices and so on.
