Also: Narasimhagupta starts a policy of cultural tolerance in an effort to unite his people, encouraging translating documents into the languages of his colonies, as well as encouraging citizens to move from "Gupta proper" to his "colonies" and take spouses with those who had already lived there, in order to make it all "Gupta proper". He also grants full citizenship to all adults in his empire. This would help him later as it would unite the people under the Empire, and leave a cultural legacy
